AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "Why, I don't even respect myself," said comedian Rodney Dangerfield. "When I make love, I have to fantasize that I'm somebody else!" Your assignment, Aquarius, is to experiment with the second half of that formulation. In other words, while you're making love, fantasize that you're somebody else. But do it because you care deeply about yourself—so deeply that you dare to awaken to previously unknown possibilities of who you might be. By the way, this exercise will yield even better results if you do it as much as possible.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] In her book Zen Miracles, Dr. Brenda Shoshanna defines the "shadow" as being the unacceptable aspects of ourselves that we dump into our unconscious mind. As we avoid looking at that hidden stuff, it festers. Meanwhile, we project it onto people we know, imagining that they possess the qualities we're repressing. The antidote to this problem, says Shoshanna, is to "eat our shadow"—haul it up from out of the pit and develop a conscious connection with it. Doing so not only prevents our unacknowledged darkness from haunting our thoughts and distorting our relationships, it also liberates tremendous psychic energy. Bon appétit!
