CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Here's a passage from Kurt Vonnegut's novel Breakfast of Champions: "Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne." This scenario has some resemblances to what you're doing, Capricorn. Fortunately, you're much smarter than two pieces of yeast, so you won't do the equivalent of drowning in crap. But I bet you'll create something comparable to champagne.

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "The question of evil," writes psychologist James Hillman in his book The Thought of the Heart and the Soul of the World, "refers primarily to the anesthetized heart, the heart that has no reaction to what it faces, thereby turning the variegated sensuous face of the world into monotony, sameness, oneness." Your assignment in the coming week, Aquarius, is to triumph over this kind of evil in yourself. By whatever ingenious and imaginative means you can dream up, you must awaken your heart fully to the unpredictable, drinking it all in like a thirsty wanderer who has just emerged from a long trek lost in the desert.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] "Dear Rob: If you, like me, were setting out on a 10-year project to become a beautiful truth-teller, what would you do? Other than bother your favorite truth-tellers for advice, of course! —Aspiring Fount of Truth." Dear Aspiring Fount: In its highest expression, the Piscean style of telling the truth is ripe with an emotional intelligence and a deep thoughtfulness that's devoted to staying focused on the big picture. One of the best ways to increase your mastery of this approach is to regularly tell yourself the truth about yourself with kick-ass kindness.
