CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] "The whole history of civilization is strewn with creeds and institutions which were invaluable at first, and deadly afterwards." So said British essayist Walter Bagehot. I would add the following corollary: The fortunes of many individuals have declined because of belief systems and structures that were invigorating earlier in their lives, but that gradually became paralyzing or parasitical. Has that ever been true about you, Capricorn? More importantly, might it become true in the future?
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "What did you do this summer?" I asked my Aquarian readers. "I didn't build a single sandcastle," wrote Emma from Baltimore. "I didn't fall in love. I didn't celebrate the full moon. I didn't run through a meadow. . . . But on the other hand, I worked hard on the book I'm writing. I dramatically improved my diet. I kept my house clean and well-organized. I watched less TV." If I'm analyzing the omens correctly, many of you Aquarians were like Emma in the past months: more successful at accomplishing practical goals than in having free-form fun. That isn't really a problem—you can't do everything, right? But these next few weeks before the equinox will be a good time to correct the imbalance.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] You have a knack for seeing what has been invisible and for describing what no one else can say. You have a talent for perceiving the open secrets that everyone else has refused to notice and for speaking truths that everyone has avoided articulating. I'm not sure what you've done to attain these wizardly abilities, but the cause isn't really important, is it? Get out there and use your superpowers to generate breakthroughs that will forestall and maybe even cancel sluggish breakdowns in the group process.
