Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Russian faith-healing superstar Anatoly Kashpirovsky has astounded observers with his apparent ability to alleviate hernias, menstrual cramps, and depression with his psychic powers. Merely by watching him on TV, many viewers claim he has smoothed away their facial wrinkles and warmed their cold feet. I bring this up because I believe there's a little bit of Kashpirovsky in all you Capricorns this week -- especially when you direct your miraculous curative powers toward yourself. Merely by winking at your image in the mirror, you could remedy inflammations, allergies, addictions, and the lingering remnants of a broken heart.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Imagine it's World War II and you're an ordinary Polish businessman who's just realized he has the means to save countless Jews from certain death at the hands of the Nazis. Imagine how dramatically you would have to change -- how much bigger your life would have to become -- if you dared to take on this challenge. Would you have the guts to abandon some of your comforts for the sake of a higher cause? Would you have the resourcefulness and stamina to finish what you started, even if the task turned out to be far more demanding than you ever imagined? I don't mean to imply that you'll be offered an invitation quite as momentous as the Polish businessman's, Aquarius; but if it turns out to be even one-tenth of 1 percent as intense, I'd like you to be prepared.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Uh-oh. I feel a permissive mood coming on -- in the cosmos, that is, not me. Frankly, I'm in a more conservative mood than the cosmos. But for whatever reason, the planetary powers-that-be have decided to float you a load of poetic licenses, blank checks, special dispensations, and maximum-security clearances. I just hope all this free stuff won't blow away the finely crafted new containers and boundaries you've been working on. Maybe I'd feel better if you promised you wouldn't use up all your permissions in the first three days. Will you please save a few for later?
