CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Long-time conservative writer Christopher Buckley, son of right-wing icon William F. Buckley, voted for Obama. Though he was once a speech writer for John McCain, Buckley was aghast at how the presidential campaign unfolded. "I didn't leave the Republican Party," he said. "The Republican Party left me." I urge you to be alert for a comparable development in your own life, Capricorn. A group whose ideals you have held dear may be changing right in front of your eyes.

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "Never keep up with the Joneses," counseled author Quentin Crisp. "Drag them down to your level. It's cheaper." But I don't recommend that approach, Aquarius. To do so would be as big a waste of your energy as trying to match the consumerist folly of the Joneses. The same holds true about any situation in which you're tempted to compete for status with people whose values aren't very deep: It's crazy to get obsessed with wanting to either be like them or to drag them down. Try to carve out an independent path without indulging in envy, hatred, or superiority.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] Do you have a negative opinion of clouds? Are you inclined to regard them as symbols of gloom or malaise, interruptions in what you wish would always be clear blue sky? Consider the fact that in Chinese mythology, there are xiangyun, or "lucky clouds," that are harbingers of great blessings. And modern meteorologists know that white, fluffy cumulus clouds are signs that fair weather is on the way. Armed with these ideas, Pisces, go out in search of your own personal lucky clouds. They're your metaphors of the week.
