Free Will Astrology

CAPRICORN [Dec. 22–Jan. 19]
If you'd like to be in alignment with cosmic rhythms in the coming week, Capricorn, you will make a concerted effort to sample a much larger selection than you usually do—of TV channels and everything else. I suggest that you expose yourself to a variety of foods, personalities, landscapes, styles, and cultures, taking in sights and sounds that you normally wouldn't even think of tuning in to.

AQUARIUS [Jan. 20–Feb. 18]
Neurobiologists at a university in Berlin have conducted experiments that strongly suggest fruit flies have free will. I think it's safe to assume that you and I also have it—and probably in much larger amounts. In a separate study reported on by Scientific American, researchers at the University of Kentucky demonstrated that you can boost your willpower simply by using it a lot, in the same way that you strengthen a muscle by exercising it. I present you with these two bolts of good news, Aquarius, just in time for the build-your-free-will phase of your astrological cycle.

PISCES [Feb. 19–March 20]
"As a European in the movie industry," writes actor W. Morgan Sheppard, "I've learned to think in terms of questions (as in European films) rather than in terms of answers (as in American films). That's why I love this quote from the play Marat-Sade, which I use when I'm teaching acting: 'For me the last word cannot ever be spoken. I am always left with a question that is open.'" I urge you to take your next assignment from these thoughts, Pisces. According to my reading of the astrological omens, answers are utterly useless to you in the coming days. Certainty is a sham. What you desperately need are ripe, provocative questions.
