CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] The French painter Cézanne painted images of a lot of fruit in the course of his career. He liked to take his sweet time while engaged in his work. The apples and pears and peaches that served as his models often rotted before he was done capturing their likenesses. That's the kind of approach I recommend for you in the coming days, Capricorn. Be deliberate and gradual and leisurely in whatever labor of love you devote yourself to.

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] "Nobody can be exactly like me. Even I have trouble doing it." So said the eccentric, outspoken, and hard-partying actress Tallulah Bankhead (1902–1968). Can you guess her astrological sign? Aquarius, of course. Her greatest adventure came from trying to keep up with all the unpredictable urges that welled up inside her. I nominate her to be your role model. Your assignment is to work hard at being yourself.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] The Dardanelles Strait is a channel that connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, separating Europe from Asia. In some places, it's less than a mile wide. But the currents are fierce, so if you try to swim across at those narrow points, you're pushed around and end up having to travel five or six miles. I'm predicting that you will have a comparable challenge. The task might seem easier or faster than it actually is. Plan accordingly.
