CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] This is my pledge to you, Capricorn: I promise to use all my otherworldly connections to get your karmic debt reduced in the next few weeks. In return, I ask that you make these pledges to me: You promise not to be a cranky beast of burden or a victim of rank manipulation. You agree not to just follow orders or passively capitulate as some bad guy with a nice smile tries to lower your standards. And finally, you swear to feed a really healthy desire that will ultimately help give your other desires more integrity and nobility.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "We all have a blind spot in love," says astrologer Jessica Shepherd at moonkissed.com. "Never simple to figure out and even harder to see head on, our blind spot is as unique and complexly layered as we are." But it's not a hopeless cause, I would add. In fact, you may ultimately be able to discern the contours of your special ignorance about romance; you may find a way to fix the unconscious glitch that has undermined your quest for meaningful intimacy. How should you proceed? Well, you will need skillful ingenuity, a willingness to gaze upon a flustering truth about yourself, and maybe a little miraculous grace. And now here's the very good news, Aquarius: It so happens that all these things are available to you right now.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] It's a ripe time to revise and rework your past, Pisces. I'll trust you to make the ultimate determination about how best to do that, but here are some possibilities: 1) Revisit a memory that has haunted you, and do a ritual that resolves it and brings you peace. 2) Return to the scene of an awkward anomaly that remains unsettled, and finally do a duty you neglected. 3) Make your way back to a dream you wandered away from prematurely, and either re-commit yourself to it, or put it to rest for good. 4) Dig up and contemplate a secret that has been festering, and come to a decision about what you can do to heal it.
