SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): On Jupiter's moon Europa, there
is an absolutely straight narrow line about 125 miles long. NASA'S photos show
it clearly. Commenting on this improbably regular feature, renowned author and
inventor Arthur C. Clarke says he finds it hard not to conclude that it was
constructed by intelligent life. "I'm beginning to think the unthinkable,"
he writes. Make that sentence your watchword in the coming week, Sagittarius.
Be ready to imagine the unimaginable, see the unseeable, and think the
unthinkable. And I mean that you should do that with the most optimistic
attitude possible. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the
almost unbelievable prospects coming into your sphere are interesting and
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): As I see your situation, it's like
you're acting famished even though the cupboards are stocked with goodies.
You're pining and moaning to be close to a treasure that's right next to you.
You've got 98 out the 100 things you need, and yet you just can't stop
obsessing on the two that are missing. If I'm wrong about this, Capricorn, just
ignore what I'm saying and rejoin me next week. But if you suspect I may be on
to something, please act fast to purge your delusions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This week I propose that you feel
gratitude for every person who has ever told you that you were inadequate, that
there was something wrong with you, that you would never amount to anything.
You might even carry out a little ceremony in which you bow down to an altar
containing their photos or slips of paper on which their names are written. And
why am I suggesting this? Because those jerks helped motivate you to become as
cool as you are. And if I'm reading the omens correctly, it's time to summon a
huge new burst of creative energy as you disprove their misbegotten ideas about
you even more completely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Why do cigarette-makers put ammonia
in their product? For the same reason that drug addicts use ammonia to turn
cocaine into crack: It helps render the nicotine and cocaine into a gas, making
it easier for the lungs to absorb them, and dramatically amplifying the high. I
hope you can find a healthy, legal, and metaphorical equivalent to this process
in the coming weeks, Pisces. You have both a poetic license and an astrological
mandate to squeeze at least three times more fun and insight out of every
single thing you do. It's the Intensity Season.
