Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): David Hellerstein has reported that Prozac hikes serotonin levels in monkeys, thereby boosting their tendency to push other monkeys around. In response to this research, scores of CEOs all over the world have taken to popping the magic little pills as well. But I'm here to tell you, Capricorn, that you won't need Prozac to increase your serotonin flow anytime soon. The planetary alignments seem to be doing it just fine. Are there any social settings in which you'd like to strut and show off and exert greater dominance? It's high time to pounce.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The X-Files' Dana Scully recently reminded Fox Mulder of a wise insight he'd once spoken, and when I heard it I immediately felt a fervent urgency to convey it to you: "A dream is an answer to a question we have not yet learned how to ask." Nothing else I could tell you this week is more important than that. Your night dreams will be more vivid and useful than they've been in months, and your daydreams will be full of hot leads that could help uncover the juiciest questions of the year.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The scene: a mother and her 8-year-old daughter at a restaurant. The girl says to the waitress, "I want a hot dog, french fries, and a Coke." The mother doesn't acknowledge this declaration. "My daughter will have the bean salad, plain yogurt, and grapefruit juice," she asserts. The waitress turns to the girl and asks, "Do you want ketchup with it?" The girl beams at the waitress and muses to herself, "She thinks I'm real." The moral of the story as far as you're concerned, Pisces: Make sure that in the next few weeks you hang out as much as possible with people like the waitress.
