SAGITTARIUS [November 22–December 21] What is your most hateable and loveable obsession, Sagittarius? The compulsion that sometimes sabotages you and sometimes inspires you? Whatever it is, I suspect it's beginning a transformation. Is there anything you can do to ensure that the changes it undergoes will lead you away from the hateable consequences and closer to the loveable stuff? I think there's a lot you can do. For starters: Do a ritual in which you affirm your intention that your obsession will forever after serve your highest good and brightest integrity.
CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] As someone who thrives on simple organic food and doesn't enjoy shopping, I would not normally have lunch at a hot dog stand in a suburban mall. But that's what I did today. Nor do I customarily read books by writers whose philosophy repels me, and yet recently I have found myself skimming through Ayn Rand's The Virtue of Selfishness. I've been enjoying these acts of rebellion. They're not directed at the targets that I usually revolt against, but rather at my own habits and comforts. I suggest you enjoy similar insurrections in the coming week, Capricorn. Rise up and overthrow your attachment to boring familiarity.
AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] The ancient Chinese book of divination known as the I Ching speaks of "catching things before they exit the gate of change." That's what happens when a martial artist anticipates an assailant's movement before it happens, or when a healer corrects an imbalance in someone's body before it becomes a full-blown illness. I see this as an important principle for you right now, Aquarius. It's a favorable time to catch potential disturbances prior to the time they exit the gate of change. If you're alert for pre-beginnings, you should be able to neutralize or transform brewing problems so they never become problems.
PISCES [February 19–March 20] Neurophysiologists say that singing really loudly can flush away metabolic waste from your cerebrum. I say that singing really loudly can help purge your soul of any tendency it might have to ignore its deepest promptings. I bring these ideas to your attention, Pisces, because I believe the current astrological omens are suggesting that you do some really loud singing. Washing the dirt and debris out of your brain will do wonders for your mental hygiene. And your soul could use a boost as it ramps up its wild power to pursue its most important dreams.
