SAGITTARIUS [November 22December 21] Im not superstitious, said Michael Scott, the former boss in the TV show The Office. Im just a little stitious. From my perspective, Sagittarius, you shouldnt indulge yourself in being even a little stitious in the coming weeks. You have a prime opportunity to free yourself from the grip of at least some of your irrational fears, unfounded theories, and compulsive fetishes. Im not saying that you suffer from more of these delusions than any of the rest of us. Its just that you now have more power than the rest of us to break away from their spell.
CAPRICORN [December 22January 19] In Platos Republic, Socrates speaks derisively about people who are eu a-mousoi, a Greek term that means happily without muses. These are the plodding materialists who have no hunger for inspiration and no need of spiritual intelligence. According to my reading of the astrological omens, Capricorn, you cant afford to be eu a-mousoi in the coming weeks. Mundane satisfactions wont be nearly enough to feed your head and heart. To even wake up and get out of bed each morning, youve got to be on fire with a shimmering dream or a beautiful prospect.
AQUARIUS [January 20February 18]In his Book of Imaginary Beings, Jorge Luis Borges reports the following: Chang Tzu tells us of a persevering man who after three laborious years mastered the art of dragon-slaying. For the rest of his days, he had not a single opportunity to test his skills. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because my reading of the astrological omens suggests that you, too, may be in training to fight a beast that does not exist. Luckily, youre also in an excellent position to realize that fact, quit the unnecessary quest, and redirect your martial energy into a more worthy endeavor.
PISCES [February 19March 20] Want to see a rabbit chase a snake up a tree? Go watch this video on YouTube: tinyurl.com/BunnyWhipsSnake. If, for some reason, you dont have access to YouTube, then please close your eyes and visualize a cute bunny harassing a six-foot-long snake until it slithers madly away and escapes up a tree. Once you have this sequence imprinted on your minds eye you will, I hope, be energized to try a similar reversal in your own sphere. Dont do anything stupid, like spitting at a Hells Angels dude in a biker bar. Rather, try a metaphorical or psychological version.
