Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A man fell out of a 40th-story window. As he plunged past a window on the 20th floor, a colleague saw him and shouted, "Are you OK?" The man called back, "So far, so good." I mention this story not because there's a complete correlation between you and the nose-diver. You're nowhere near such dire straits. I mean yes, you might be falling, but not from such a dizzying height. And besides, there's an old but pretty sturdy safety net waiting for you at the bottom. The point I'm trying to make is that you should not act as composed as the dude in my anecdote. Let people know you could use some cheers of encouragement and maybe even some hands-on help with crisis management.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Here's a quote from Alec Baldwin: "If you want too much money, sell your soul to a Fortune 500 company. If you want too much power, go to Washington. If you want too much sex, go into the fashion business. And if you want the whole poison cocktail in one glass, go to Hollywood." Now here's a quote from me: "If you want a wild sense of inner peace, love yourself ingeniously. If you want crazy wisdom that fuels overflowing creativity, be your most generous self. If you want educational love that keeps you guessing in the most pleasurable way, lose some of your self-importance. If you want the whole nutritious cocktail, forget about being greedy for money, power, or sex."

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): My daughter attends the same school as the kids of Grateful Dead bass player Phil Lesh (who happens to be a Pisces), so I get to see him in roles other than the one he became famous for. Recently I spotted him in a performance of The Sacred Drama of Eleusis, a dramatic presentation of an ancient mystery play. Phil played the part of Pluto, Lord of Hades. Seeing him rule over his underworld domain with majestic poise, I said a silent prayer that all you other Pisceans might come to a similar relationship with the shadowy world of your unconscious. Not as a victim of its scary unpredictability, in other words, but as a sovereign overseeing a storehouse of riches and fertility.
