Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The most famous Capricorn in history once declared, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven." Of course, like most great storytellers, Jesus was given to exaggeration. I think what he really meant, and would have affirmed had he been pressed by, say, Ted Koppel, was, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich non-Capricornian person to enter the kingdom of heaven." You goats, in other words, aren't as likely to have your spiritual principles distorted by material abundance. Which I'm sure you'll be proving in spades in the weeks and months ahead.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the film Groundhog Day, Bill Murray plays a guy who suddenly and inexplicably finds himself trapped in a maddening predicament: He keeps living the exact same 24 hours -- Groundhog Day -- over and over again. Kind of remind you of your own daily routine?

In the movie of your life -- if I were the scriptwriter -- I would tell the story of how your experiences on Feb. 2, 1996, had an eerie similarity to Murray's fate. It was and is and will be the day you finally break the trance -- and stop living the same dream over and over again.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): In old Japan, Feb. 3 was a holiday called Setsbun. Celebrants hung fish heads from the doorways on the theory that the foul odor chased away demons. As you Pisceans enter the thick of your astrological season of exorcism, I highly recommend a funny yet serious ritual similar to that. Instead of fish heads, though, you could use dirty socks or moldy pizza from under the couch. If there's anything demons hate worse than bad smells, it's humor -- especially the self-mocking kind.
