CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] If you were the star of a fairy tale in which a spell had been placed on you, you would find a way to break that spell sometime in the next seven months. If you were the hero of a myth about a royal child abandoned in the wasteland by your evil nurse and raised by emotionally clumsy but well-meaning gnomes, your exile would soon end; your real parents, the king and queen, would find you after a long search, and your birthright would be restored. Now translate these themes into the actual circumstances of your life, Capricorn. Are you ready to do what it takes to achieve a healing and restoration that have been a long time coming?

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] What is sacred? Friedrich Nietzsche said it was anything that you cannot or will not laugh at. But I have the exact opposite view. If I'm unable to crack a joke about what I regard as holy, then it's not holy. For me, part of what makes an idea or person or object holy is its power to animate my sense of humor and put me in the mood to play. Where do you stand on this issue, Aquarius? If you're aligned with my view, you will have some wonderful opportunities to commune with the sacred in the coming days.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] In the chorus of my band's song "Apathy and Ignorance," I sing, "What is the difference between apathy and ignorance?" and the other two singers chant, "I don't know and I don't care." I recommend you make that chant your mantra in the coming days, Pisces: "I don't know and I don't care." You really do need to experiment with a mischievous state of mind that is blithely heedless of what anyone thinks about anything. You have the right and the privilege to be free of expectations, precedents, and dogmas. Trust you intuition above all other influences! It's an excellent time to at least temporarily declare your independence from everything that's not interesting or useful or helpful or appealing.

You're not a sissy. You're actually very brave. I would rather have my fingernails pulled out than go parasailing. Don't like guns? That's healthy. Confined spaces? Claustrophobia ain't sissyhood (or whatever the word is). Not being around the dying? That is a problem, since, as my (late) father used to say, about 100% of us will die some day, and death is part of the natural cycle of life, and your loved ones will probably want contact with you when they're about to leave this mortal coil. But that only means you are enmeshed in the denial-of-death consumerist culture of America- also not sissyhood.
