CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] What happens in your bedroom, Capricorn? What stories swirl around in your mind while you're there? What feelings do you gravitate toward? Judging from the astrological omens, I'd say it's time to expand your notion of what goes on in that sanctuary. How about embarking on a new playtime activity or introducing a pleasurable commotion you've never tried? At the very least, unleash your imagination while relaxing there. Give yourself permission to have bigger fantasies. Tell yourself more epic stories, develop a more active relationship with your secrets, and welcome unfamiliar feelings.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Last May, riots in Santa Cruz, California, trashed 18 buildings in the downtown area. But for one store owner, the mayhem brought unexpected blessings. She was able to tap into a city fund that allowed her to make several improvements, like adding fresh paint, a new awning, and better lighting. "I never would have thought when I got that call at 1 in the morning that this was going to turn into such a wonderful thing for us," Diane Towns told the Santa Cruz Sentinel. I predict a similar progression for you, Aquarius. An event that seemed like bad luck at the time will ultimately lead to good luck.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] French painter Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) declared early in his career that he wanted to "conquer Paris with an apple." He meant that he wanted to become a major force in the art world by revolutionizing the way that still-life paintings were done. He must have been successful, because two prominent modern painters, Picasso and Matisse, referred to Cézanne as "the father of us all." Your assignment in the coming months, Pisces, is to make a splash in your own chosen field with an innovation that's as simple and basic as Cézanne's reconfigured apple.
