SAGITTARIUS [November 22–December 21] The world is poised at the threshold of a great choice: Should we stick with what has worked for us, even though it's not working anymore? Or should we experiment with possibilities that may work for us in the future, even though they don't have a track record? You, Sagittarius, can and should be a leader in this epic adventure. The best way to do that is to summon your courage as you apply the questions I just posed to your personal life.
CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Saturn symbolizes the preservative and conservative tendencies of evolution. It teaches us to learn from the past and keeps us from rushing into the frontier before we're ready. Uranus, however, represents future shocks, both the disturbing and benevolent kinds. It disturbs our sleep in order to wake us up and energizes us to reinvent ourselves on the fly. What happens when these two planets slip into an intimate dynamic, as they are now? Will one of them prevail over the other? Or will they coordinate their efforts artfully in a riveting dance? Amazingly enough, the outcome depends in part on you.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] No faking allowed, Aquarius. I mean it. You must do no pretending, tell no dirty lies, and never act as if you know things you don't. Say exactly what you mean; be more real than you have ever dared; be nothing more or less than who you actually are. Why is this authenticity crusade so important right now? Because in the coming weeks, you'll be setting your life's tone for months to come.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] Uranus symbolizes your instinct for freedom and your attunement with your intuition. Saturn represents structure and responsibility; when it's prominent, it's time to get back to basics and cut down on distractions. What should you do when these two planets are in exact opposition, as they are now? Here's a hint: We're being squeezed between a mandate to head toward the frontier and the pressure to play it safe. To keep from being paralyzed, some of us may have to choose one way over the other. You Pisceans are likely to profit by choosing the Uranian path.
