SAGITTARIUS [November 22–December 21] In the coming weeks, your effect and power to incite change will be peaking. You may heal people by shaking their certainties or you may scare people as you motivate them to shed their lazy approaches. You could be a stringently benevolent force or a disruptive fixer of broken things. My only advice for you is to work hard to stay humble. The potency of your influence might tempt you to get full of yourself, and that would undermine the beauty of your impact.

CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] I'm embarrassed to confess that when I'm shopping for an herbal supplement I've never bought before, my choice is unduly influenced by how much I like the packaging. For example, I might opt for the brassy orange-and-white bottle with bold black lettering over the brand with the washed-out blue-green color scheme and delicate purple font. I hope you won't fall victim to any version of my folly, Capricorn. It's especially important that you make your decisions based on a piercing analysis of the inner contents, not a superficial survey of the outer display.

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Study the following facts to derive oracular clues about your upcoming destiny: 1) Some bacteria are inimical to human beings, but others are friendly, like the creatures that inhabit your intestine and help you digest the food you eat. 2) There are snakes whose venom is poisonous in large doses but healing in small amounts. 3) The word "demon" is derived from the ancient Greek word "daimon," which referred not to an evil supernatural being, but to a benevolent guardian spirit that conferred blessings on a person.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] On the website "Yahoo! Answers," readers pose questions that are answered by other readers. In a recent entry, a young woman asked, "Is there a spell to become a mermaid that actually works?" Of the 50-plus replies, most are snarky and mean, ridiculing the asker of the question, and not a single one gives useful information. I encourage you to offer your own insight on the subject sometime soon. You are now at the peak of your ability to act, think, feel, love, and dream like a mythical sea creature.
