By the way, because all your imminent quantum leaps happen to coincide with the Sun slipping into your House of Romance, I wouldn't be surprised if they were all done in the name of love. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How's your intuition lately? Has it by any chance been nudging you to put in more nesting time? If so, pat yourself on the butt, then treat yourself to a gourmet home meal. You're already in tune with the astrological forces and don't really need my advice.
If, on the other hand, you've been ignoring the yammering calls to cultivate more domestic bliss, I'm afraid your intuition needs a wakeup call. Spank yourself, then stare at your navel until you conjure up visions of what home accessories to buy, what housemate to be sweet to and what obstacles are inhibiting your passion to create a bubblier home.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Pro football coach Sam Wyche espouses the theory that the team that puts the first points on the board is at a disadvantage, because it's likely to fall victim to overconfidence and complacency. By this argument, you're exactly where you need to be. Your competitors have jumped out to an early lead, which means that any minute now they'll be drooping. So don't obsess because you've fallen behind. Explain to yourself that you've just been carrying out the cagey strategy of turning the other guys into their own worst enemies.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Two months ago I recommended a book by Kimberly Kassner called You're a Genius -- and I Can Prove It. As a courtesy to the multitudes of Pisceans who've called me trying to track it down, here's the author's phone number: (800) 272-4675. (And no, I don't get a kickback; nor do I know Ms. Kassner personally.)
Now I'll suggest another book of special interest, Descartes' Error by Antonio Damasio. This eminent neurologist refutes the conventional wisdom that says our feelings are unreliable guides. He offers scientific arguments to support Pascal's belief that "the heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of." His ideas will come in handy soon, when you'll have to convince doubters that you have every right to let your emotions sway your decisions.
