SAGITTARIUS [November 22–December 21] In Mongolia, there's a famous fossil of two dinosaurs locked in mortal combat. Forever frozen in time, a velociraptor is clawing a protoceratops, which in turn is biting its enemy's arm. They've been holding that pose now for, oh, 80 million years or so. I'm shoving this image in your face, Sagittarius, so as to dare you and encourage you to withdraw from your old feuds and disputes. It's a perfect time, astrologically speaking, to give up any struggle that's not going to matter 80 million years from now. (More info: tinyurl.com/DinosaurFight.)
CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] "In your experience, who is the best-smelling actor that you've worked with?" TV host Jon Stewart asked his guest Tom Hanks. "Kevin Bacon," replied Hanks. Why? Not because of the bacon-as-a-delicious-food angle. "He smells like a mix of baby powder and Listerine," Hanks said. Keep this perspective in mind, Capricorn. I think you should be engaged in a great ongoing quest to put yourself in situations with pleasing aromas. To set yourself up for meaningful experiences that provide you with exactly what you need, follow your nose.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] According to my reading of the omens, Aquarius, you can finally take advantage of a long-standing invitation or opportunity that you have always felt unworthy of or unready for. Congratulations on being so doggedly persistent about ripening the immature parts of yourself. Now here's an extra bonus: This breakthrough might in turn lead to you finding a lost piece to the puzzle of your identity.
PISCES (February 19–March 20] My acquaintance Bob takes a variety of meds for his bipolar disorder. They work pretty well to keep him out of the troughs, but he misses the peaks. Last time he saw his psychiatrist he told her he wished he could stop taking the complicated brew of drugs and just take a happy pill every day. The psychiatrist told him that if he ever found such a thing, she'd love to take it herself. Wouldn't we all? I'm pleased to report that you are now very close to locating the next best thing to a happy pill, Pisces. It might require you to at least partially give up your addiction to one of your customary forms of suffering, though.
