CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] "There are two things to aim at in life," wrote essayist Logan Pearsall Smith. "First to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second." You are currently in a position to accomplish that magical second aim. You have the power to want what you actually have . . . to enjoy the fruits of your labors . . . to take your attention off the struggle so that you may fully love the experiences your struggle has earned you.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Scientists find new species of plants and animals all the time, but the latest addition to the great catalog of life is a species whose members number in the millions and cover a huge swath of Ethiopia. It's a tree that botanists have never had a name for until now: Acacia fumosa. Unlike other acacias, it produces pink blooms in the dry season instead of yellow or pink flowers in the wet season. I predict that you will soon have a comparable experience, Aquarius: You'll "discover" and identify a unique wellspring that has been around forever but is unknown to you. As you tap into its charms, I trust you will make up for lost time.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] In her column "Word Fugitives" in The Atlantic, Barbara Wallraff asked her readers to coin terms that would mean "the unfortunate telling of a story that one realizes too late is ill-suited to the occasion." The best ideas were "blabberghasted," "tale of whoa," and "put my faux paw in my mouth." I'll warn you to be wary of this behavior in the coming week. You're likely to be articulate, and your urge to express yourself may be pressing. That could make you susceptible to running your mouth. But as long as you monitor yourself for signs that you're about to go too far, I bet your fluency will serve you very well.
