Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Happy Holy Daze, Sagittarius! If I were going to give you a holiday gift, it might be a Cracker Jack box with a vial of love potion inside. Not that you'll need any artificial help in stimulating romantic adventures in 1999: You yourself will be a riveting aphrodisiac. For best results, however, it would be wise to cultivate a Cracker Jack-like spirit in all things amorous, which is to say frisky and antic and full of surprises.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I'd love for you to ratchet up your levels of domestic bliss in 1999, but without rousing any sappy energies that might encourage you to fall into a complacent rut. That's why I exhort you to buy yourself holiday gifts that bring an edgy spirit of fun into your home. Some suggestions: a backward wall clock in which the hands run counterclockwise; the party game Twister, which requires participants to crawl all over each other; prayer flags strung from window to tree, each bearing an outrageous wish written by you; an altar piled high with objects both sacred and playful; matching silk kimonos.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You Aquarians are rarely control freaks. If anything, you tend to be the opposite. You seem to feel a perverse comfort when chaotic fun is lurking. In 1999, though, I don't think you can get away with indulging these inclinations as often as you have in the past. In fact, I'll be lobbying hard for you to become more of a well-organized mastermind. I suggest you buy yourself a marionette show or radio-controlled toy bulldozer this holiday season. Either will give you good practice in manipulating your environment with more command.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): I would never give you a holiday gift like an electronic hand-sized bowling game, a tree ornament shaped like the Titanic, or a Detroit Red Wings 1998 commemorative puck. But lots of other people might be tempted to give you junk like that -- not only now, but all through the coming year. The best way to avoid this ignominious fate is to become very specific and aggressive about what you really want. To do that, of course, you are going to have to become much better acquainted with what you really want. (Hint: How about a tool that'll give you more precise power to do your favorite work
