Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Since the planets have primed you to be a superlearner in the next few weeks, you ought to take advantage. You're going to digest mounds of data at a high rate of speed, so you might as well be very discriminating about what kind of data you put on your plate. I mean, do you want to come out of this phase being an expert on, say, Heather Locklear's health and beauty secrets? Or would you rather double your understanding about a subject that'll make you a sexier, more highly paid human dynamo?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Decide which of the two classified ads below appeals to you most, and treat it as a metaphor for the task you have ahead of you.

1) "Drab, unimaginative company seeks talentless people with no ambitions for a job that performs no useless service for anyone. Interested in wasting your time while drifting aimlessly through life?"

2) "High-octane organization that understands how to play while working and work while playing seeks restless souls for a job that's rarely boring. Interested in having the privilege and responsibility of reinventing yourself continuously?"

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): National Geographic recently reported on a 101-year-old plant living at a botanical garden in Oxford, England. Though this specimen of Agave ferox had grown 6 feet tall since its birth in 1894, it had never once bloomed -- until recently. On a fateful December day in 1994 the greenhouse temperature accidentally exceeded 68 degrees, and in the next two weeks the plant doubled its height. In May, it burst out in flowers for the first time ever.

This very true fairy tale is my gift to you this week, Pisces. It reminds me so much of the way a long-dormant part of you is finally blossoming.
