CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] The next phase of your life will be an excellent time to unbreak your heart. Here's what I mean: You will have extra power to dissolve any pain that still lingers from the romantic disappointments of the past. You'll be able to summon acute insights into how to dismantle the sodden and unnecessary defenses you built to protect yourself from loss and humiliation. You will find it easier than ever before to forgive and forget any close companion who hurt you. So get out there, Capricorn, and launch the joyful process of restoring your love muscles to their original potency.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "Search for Self Called Off After 38 Years," read the headline in The Onion. "I always thought that if I kept searching and exploring, I'd discover who I truly was," the report began, quoting 38-year-old Andrew Speth. "Well, I looked deep into the innermost recesses of my soul, and you know what I found? An empty, windowless room the size of an aircraft hangar. From now on, if anybody needs me, I'll be sprawled out on my couch drinking black-cherry soda." I wonder if Speth is an Aquarius? Many of my Aquarian acquaintances seem to have hit a dead end recently in their quest to fulfill the ancient maxim "Know thyself." If you're like that, please hang on. The floodgates of self-discovery will open soon.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] Odds are high that you know very little about Africa. Can you name even 20 of its more than 50 countries? Did you realize that 2,000 languages are spoken by the people living there? I bring this up, Pisces, because from an astrological perspective it's an excellent time for you to fill the gaps in your education about Africa -- or any other subject about which you are deeply uninformed. Don't get overwhelmed by this assignment, though. Choose maybe three areas of ignorance that you will concentrate on in the coming weeks.
Homework: Though sometimes it's impossible to do the right thing, doing the half-right thing may be a viable option. Give an example from your own life: FreeWillAstrology.com
