CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Most American companies don't pay any federal income tax. During a recent seven-year period, 1.3 million businesses earned well over a trillion dollars but didn't pony up a cent to the U.S. government. I mention this, Capricorn, because it's now a favorable time, astrologically speaking, for you to seek out comparable perks. Maybe you don't have to keep having your assets drained in ways you've always assumed were inevitable. I'm talking metaphorically as well as literally; I'm referring to emotional and psychic energy as well as actual money. What legal and ethical loopholes can you exploit to free yourself from long-running burdens?

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Once upon a time, Brave Aquarius wandered out to the edge of the known universe in search of mind-blowing sensations and clues to the future. So imagine Brave Aquarius's amazement when the rather attractive ogre who was guarding the rope bridge that crossed over the abyss said, "Stop! You're headed the wrong way! The mind-blowing sensations and clues to the future you crave are all the way back where you started." What to do? The ogre's advice was counterintuitive and downright confounding. But Brave Aquarius, being an experimental adventurer first and foremost, thought: "Hmmm—I guess maybe I'll try what the ogre suggested. After all, what could be more experimental and adventurous than changing my mind?"

PISCES [February 19–March 20] Blessings will come if you cultivate as much stillness as possible. I'm not just talking about reducing the noise levels, although that's a good first step. Other things you might want to do: Cut way down on your use of the phone; surf the Internet 70 percent less than usual; avoid TV news altogether; and don't hang around people whose minds zip around like chimps on meth. As for your own monkey mind: See if you can enjoy some periods each day when the monkey gets to lie down in a soft place and watch the wide sky roll by.
