Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Having managed to avoid Disneyland all my life, I finally broke down in the face of my daughter's gentle begging. The lines for all the best rides were as long as I'd heard, but the one for Splash Mountain was ridiculous. It sorely tested the patient forbearance I built up in my two past lives as a monk. Was the thrilling plunge down the waterfall at the end of the ride, all five seconds of it, sufficient reward for the 95 minutes I invested waiting for my turn? Doubtful. But I have a feeling you'll be far more satisfied with the sweet treat that'll climax your own interminable trial this week, Capricorn. And I bet the benefits of that treat will endure a lot longer than the few minutes of woozy bliss I enjoyed as I shuffled away from my Splash Mountain experience.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An amusing muse will be in your face and on your case for the next couple of weeks, Aquarius, nagging and seducing and tricking and helping you in an unfathomable pattern that could drive you batty. While it's true that this curious ally will sometimes seem to be in league with amoral cartoon characters, I have good reason to believe that he or she is actually on an odd mission assigned by your fairy godmother. Promise yourself you'll bend over backward to interpret every new blip as if my theory were true, and by week's end I bet you'll have been blessed with several disguised gifts.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Before we get to the meat of this week's message, I'd like you to apologize to yourself for the way you've been demeaning and neglecting your secret powers. Go ahead. Find a mirror, look yourself in the eyes, and say, "I'm terribly sorry for treating you without the reverent respect you so richly deserve." Don't read any further until you've done this, please, Pisces. Finished? Good. Now maybe you won't end up falling under the spell of a lost dream this week. Instead, let's hope you'll realize how precious your dawning obsessions are, and go on a binge that honors the surprising future.
