SAGITTARIUS [November 22–December 21] Of the 190 short films the Three Stooges made, only five actually had pie fights. However, those scenes sum up all there is to know about the mythic meaning of pie fights, as well as the needs they address and the techniques involved. I urge you to study up on the Stooges' teachings and put them to immediate use. Nothing could be more effective in dealing with stalled negotiations, convoluted mind games, excessive gravity, and bureaucratic slowdowns than a righteous pie fight.
CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Some people use sly intelligence rather than mindless rage to escape their limitations. Do you know any? If so, soak up their influence. You could use some inspiration as you make your own break for freedom. The best way to ensure that your liberation will be permanent is to go about it with humor, subtlety, and humility.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Writing in Earthwatch magazine, Anne Marcotty Morris rhapsodized about her trek into Brazil's rain forest. The jungle is a fecund place, she said: "Several barbed seeds that had attached themselves to me on our walk into the forest had sprouted by the time we walked out." These fast-growing seeds are an apt metaphor for your psyche, Aquarius. You're a hotbed of lush fertility. I advise you to be very discriminating about which influences you give your attention to. Good or bad, empowering or corrosive—they will grow fast.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] There has rarely been a better time than now to blend your fresh, sparkly innocence and your deep, ancient wisdom. The childlike aspects of your intelligence are especially available, as are the visionary elements—and the two have a great potential to complement each other. You might be amazed at how you could transform long-standing problems by invoking this dynamic tandem of energies.
