CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] It's prime time for intense and momentous social events. Of the gatherings you may attend, I hope you'll find at least one that fits the following descriptions: 1) a warm fluidic web of catalytic energy where you awaken to new possibilities about how to create close alliances; 2) a sweet, jangly uproar where you encounter a strange attractor—a freaky influence that makes the hair on the back of your neck rise and lights up the fertile parts of your imagination; 3) a sacred party where you get a novel vision of how to connect with the divine realms more viscerally. Halloween costume suggestion: something that incorporates a hub, wheel, or web.

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] The members of the congregation at St. Peter-at-Gowts Church in Lincoln, England, had a minor crisis a few years ago. For years, they had prayed to a very old stone sculpture they assumed was a likeness of the Virgin Mary. Then a nosy archaeologist came poking around and informed them that the figure was actually Arimanius, the god of the underworld in the ancient Mithraic religion. I encourage you to make sure you're not under a comparable misimpression, Aquarius. This is an excellent time for you to seek the help of higher powers, but it's crucial that you direct your invocations to the right source.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] Some of history's worst tyrants have been terrified by kittens. Napoleon, Genghis Khan, and Mussolini all had ailurophobia, an irrational fear of domestic felines. I bring this up because it reminds me of a situation in your life. I'm betting that a pushy or domineering influence that distorts your emotions will soon be susceptible to being spooked by a seemingly harmless little thing. Maybe you could turn this into a permanent advantage. How skilled are you at purring?
