SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): "When I became a man I put away childish things," said Sagittarian author C.S. Lewis, "including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." I suggest you take up that attitude yourself in 2011, Sagittarius. One of your top assignments in the coming months will be to play with greater intensity and more frequency and a heightened imagination. If you want to achieve your adult goals, you'll be wise to recreate your childhood wisdom on a higher octave.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): "We Americans are the best informed people on earth as to the events of the last 24 hours," wrote historian Will Durant some decades ago. "We are the not the best informed as to the events of the last sixty centuries," he concluded. Today this describes many Westerners, not just Americans. We are adrift in the Age of the Short Attention Span - a time when the lessons of the past are becoming lost or irrelevant. But in 2011, I'll be rooting for you to elude this curse, Capricorn. It's crucial for you to be in close touch with both the lessons provided by the grand sweep of human civilization and by your own personal history.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): "The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority," said author A.A. Milne. "The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking." You will have an excellent chance to cultivate that definition of a first-rate mind in 2011, Aquarius. According to my reading of the astrological omens, life will be conspiring to strengthen your brain. You will have everything going for you if you make it your intention to sharpen your wits, use language more precisely, and see the world with greater clarity and objectivity. To get the fun started, make a list of what you could do to push your intelligence beyond its current limits.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "Anything you're good at contributes to happiness," said philosopher Bertrand Russell. If I had my way, Pisces, you'd write that on a note and tape it to your bathroom mirror for the duration of 2011. I think it would raise your appreciation for the power your personal gifts have to bestow blessings on both yourself and others. And I hope it would inspire you to spend a lot of quality time finding out all you can about what you're good at and deepening your capacity to do what you're good at.
