CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] In "Those Who Do Not Dance," Chilean poet Gabriel Mistral says: "God asked from on high,/'How do I come down from this blueness?'/We told Him:/Come dance with us in the light." I love this passage because it reminds me that nothing is ever set in stone: Everything is always up for grabs. Even God needs to be open to change and eager for fresh truths. Also, even we puny humans may on occasion need to be God's teacher and helper. Likewise, we can never be sure about what lowly or unexpected sources may bring us the influences we require. What do Mistral's words mean to you, Capricorn? Imagine you're the "God" referenced in the poem. What blueness are you ready to come down from, and who might invite you to dance in their light?
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] All the good works you do in the coming week will send ripples far and wide, but not all of them will be recognized. I hope that's OK with you; I hope you won't get obsessed with trying to get all the credit you deserve. Your influences will be more effective if they are at least partially anonymous. Ironically, your power will be greater if it's not fully noticed.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] Describing his writing class at Sarah Lawrence College, Jeffrey McDaniel says: "There are two kinds of humor: ha-ha humor that is light and airy and floats into the sky like a balloon, vanishing as the giggling subsides; and then there is a darker, heavier humor that is still there when the laughter stops, a humor that must be reckoned with, a humor with teeth." I suggest, Pisces, that you make the latter your specialty, your passion. Consort with belly laughs and sublime guffaws that rouse the ferocity you need in order to penetrate deeper into the heart of the Great Mystery.
