Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): One of the perks of being a nationally syndicated columnist is that old friends I've lost touch with can track me down. It's not a foolproof conduit, however. I've never been contacted by Barbara Weil, the smart rebel dancer I had such a crush on in high school. If anyone out there knows where she is, please write me at Box 150247, San Rafael, CA 94915. In return for info leading to her discovery, I'll include, in a future column, the names of any long lost friends you'd like to locate. But even if none of you Capricorns can help me, I'll still pray for all of you to locate misplaced treasures, stolen dreams, and vanished links. This is an ideal time to provide you with such a service, seeing as how you have a sixth sense for hunting down resurrections and revivals.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If everything goes perfectly, Aquarius, your weirdest problem could suddenly get solved during a magical 90-second interlude this week! For that matter, you might wake up tomorrow able to play a Mozart sonata well enough to get booked into Carnegie Hall. But probably not, probably not. I will say this, however. During that magical 90-second interlude I was hypothesizing about earlier, you could at least go from running against the wind to running with the wind.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Research shows that liberals are twice as likely as conservatives to see a UFO, and right-wingers nine times more likely than lefties to glimpse an angel. I surveyed the socialist libertarian pagans I hang out with and found that none had ever spied an angel or UFO, but several had had intimate contact with a figure they call the Goddess. This suggests that our belief systems skew how we interpret our encounters with the numinous mystery that haunts our planet. I'm not saying the numinous mystery isn't real; in fact, I'm certain it is. But it's so far beyond our ability to perceive what it actually is that each of us turns it into a concept familiar to us personally. All this is preface for my prediction that you are about to have your own brush with the Great Secret.
