CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) "Everyone is a genius at least once a year," said scientist Georg Lichtenberg. According to my reading of the astrological omens, Capricorn, the coming weeks will be your time to confirm the truth of that aphorism. Your idiosyncratic brilliance is rising to a fever pitch and might start spilling over into crackling virtuosity any minute now. Be discriminating about where you use that stuff; don't waste it on trivia. Halloween costume suggestions: Einstein, Marie Curie, Leonardo da Vinci, Emily Dickinson.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) You're ready to shed juvenile theories, amateurish approaches, or paltry ambitions. I'm not implying you're full of those things; I'm just saying that if you have any of them, you've now got the power to outgrow them. Your definition of success needs updating, and I think you're up to the task. The Big Time is calling you—or at least a Bigger Time. Try this: Have brainstorming sessions with an ally or allies who know your true potential and can assist you in formulating aggressive plans to activate it more fully. Halloween costume suggestions: a head honcho, big wheel, fat cat, top dog.
PISCES (February 19–March 20) I know a woman who claims on her Facebook page that she speaks four languages: English, Elvish, Mermish, and Parseltongue. (For those of you who don't read Tolkien or Harry Potter, Elvish is the language of the elves, Mermish of the mermaids and mermen, and Parseltongue of the serpents.) My Facebook friend probably also knows pig Latin, baby talk, and glossolalia, though she doesn't mention them. I'd love for you to expand your mastery of foreign tongues, Pisces, even if it's just one of the above. Halloween costume suggestion: a bilingual bisexual ambidextrous expert in reciting tongue twisters.
