CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] In a horoscope last year, I asked you whether you ever obsessed on your longing to such a degree that you missed opportunities to actually satisfy your longing. In response, a reader named John G. sent me the following: "We Capricorns comprehend the futility of too much longing. We understand it can be a phantasm that gets in the way of real accomplishment. It's like a telephone that keeps ringing somewhere but can't be found. We don't waste energy on dreamy feelings that may or may not be satisfied, since that energy is so much better funneled into mastering the details that will bring us useful rewards." I'm here to tell you, Capricorn, that the coming months will be an excellent time to make use of the Capricornian capacities John G. describes.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you," sang Bob Marley. "You just gotta find the ones worth suffering for." How are you doing on that score? Have you been discerning in picking out allies whose value to you is so high that you're willing to deal with their moments of unconsciousness? Have you created a family and community that bless you far more than they drain you? The next ten months will be an excellent time to concentrate on refining this part of your life.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] Any minute now, you might start learning at a faster rate than you have since 2000. Any day now, you will be less bored than you have been since 2006, and any week now you will be expressing more spontaneity than you have since 2010. Any month now, you will be able to access more of your intelligence than you have since maybe 2007. What does it all mean? You may not feel an amazing, extraordinary degree of personal unity tomorrow, but you will soon begin building toward that happy state. By December, I bet you'll be enjoying an unprecedented amount of it.
