CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Your symbol for the week is the Mariana Trench, which is the lowest place on the earth's surface. Located underwater in the Pacific Ocean, it's almost seven miles down. I chose this feature for you to play with in your imagination because I'm hoping it will inspire you to explore the extreme depths. The coming days will be an excellent time to get better acquainted with the stuff that's at the very bottom of your world.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Your IQ has crept up beyond its usual level, and may ascend even higher in the coming days. I suspect you're poised to erupt with a host of sharp insights, and maybe some brilliant analyses or strokes of genius as well. Why? How? It may have to do with the way the planets are massaging your brain chemistry. Or perhaps it's because you smell freedom, and your libido is boosting your intelligence with the enhancements that only the onset of exhilaration can provide. I recommend that you milk this gift for all it's worth. Don't waste time on trivial conquests like polishing off crossword puzzles or acing online personality tests. Try to solve the mystery of the ages, or at least your two knottiest problems.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] "So I sing to my seeds," says gardener Leslie Gaydos. "What about it?" Although she sounds a bit defensive about treating her unsprouted kernels like sentient beings, I hope you won't be in the least apologetic as you carry out your assignment: Serenade your seeds. Bathe them in your tender concern. Infuse them with your intelligent love. Whether your seeds are literal plants or more metaphorical in nature, make it your priority to sweet-talk them and guide them into the next phase of their growth.
