CAPRICORN [December 22–January 19] The reality show Freaky Eaters profiled a woman named Kelly who had eaten nothing but cheesy potatoes for 30 years. Her average intake: eight pounds of potatoes and four cups of cheese per day. "I love cheesy potatoes," she testified. "They're stewy, gooey, and just yum-yum-yummy. They're like crack to me." I'm a bit concerned that you're flirting with behavior comparable to hers. Make sure that you're not starting to over-specialize. It would be wise to avoid obsessing on a single type of anything.

AQUARIUS [January 20–February 18] Annie Dillard describes the peculiar behavior of educated European tourists in the 18th century. When they visited the Alps, she writes in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, "they deliberately blindfolded their eyes to shield themselves from the evidence of the earth's horrid irregularity." Don't be anything like those dumb sophisticates, Aquarius. When you spy irregularities, consider the possibility that they are natural and healthy. This will allow you to perceive their useful beauty.

PISCES [February 19–March 20] You are not for sale. Remember? Your scruples and ideals and talents cannot be bought off for any amount of money. You may have to temporarily rent your soul from time to time, you will never auction it off for good. I'm sure you know these things, Pisces, but I suspect it's time to renew your fiery commitment to them.
