SAGITTARIUS [November 22–December 21] Congratulations! Free Will Astrology's Task Force on Creative Suffering has confirmed that your current dilemmas are exceptionally interesting. You have demonstrated a talent for getting embroiled in riddles that promise to bring out your dormant reserves of ingenuity. The dumbfounding questions you've been wrestling with are high-caliber tests that have drawn you closer to the heart of the reasons you're here on Earth. Take full advantage of this beautiful mess, my dear. Chaos this fertile is hard to come by.
CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] When Dante was nine years old, long before he became one of Italy's supreme poets, he fell in love with Beatrice, an eight-year-old girl he met. In the years after their initial encounter, they met infrequently, and both eventually married other people. But Beatrice played a crucial role throughout Dante's life, although she died at the age of 24. She was not just his muse, but also his "beatitude, the destroyer of all vices, and the queen of virtue, salvation." Dante even wrote her into his Divine Comedy in the role of a guide. Is there any person or influence in your life equivalent to Beatrice? Any once-upon-a-time blessing that might be ready to give you the fullness of the gifts it has been waiting all this time to deliver?
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] I would love it if you could find a sword that could cut itself. Or some water you could wash. But even if you can conjure the magic to attract an experience that simply resembles one of those paradoxes, it would set in motion a series of epiphanies that would liberate you from a paradox—an absurdity that is not worthy of you and that has been draining your life force.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] The planets are aligned in such a way that suggests you may be able to orgasm solely by meditating. This cosmic alignment also means that it's conceivable you could attract new resources by following your holy bliss. But I can't say for sure that you will actually be able to capitalize on any of these remarkable opportunities. It will depend on whether you can express one of the skills that is your birthright as a Pisces: being wild and disciplined at the same time.
