CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] Among Google searches starting with the phrase "who is," the top-rated is "God," while "Satan" is a distant 10th. Running ahead of Satan but behind God are Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. If I were you, Capricorn, I wouldn't be Google-searching any bigger-than-life entities like those four in the coming week. The characters you need to research are non-divine, non-celebrity types who might bring interesting influences into your life—people who would have a direct influence on your access to resources and on your ability to call forth the best from yourself.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Explorers found a 30,000-year-old carved stone artifact in a German cave and brought it to the University of Tubingen for study. Experts there determined that it had a dual purpose for the ancient humans who made it. Phallic-shaped with rings around one end, it was obviously a sex toy. But other markings indicated it was also used to start fires by striking it against flints. I'd like to make this power object your symbol of the week, Aquarius. You're in a phase when you should be alert for ways to mix business with pleasure and practicality with adventure.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] You're not exceptionally scared of the dark, Pisces, but sometimes you seem to be intimidated by the light. You can summon the courage to go crawling through tunnels and caves in quest of treasure, but you may play hard to get when you're offered the chance to unburden yourself of your cares. What's up with that? Don't get me wrong: I'm proud of your capacity to wrestle with the shadows in the land of the lost; I'm gratified by your willingness to work your karma to the bone. But I would also love you to get a share of rejuvenating rest and ease now and then. Do you think you could manage to have it both ways? I do.
