SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I have regular intimate communion with the Divine Wow (formerly known as "God"). Whether I "believe" in my Dear Companion is irrelevant - just as I don't need to "believe" in a juicy Fuji apple while I'm eating it. That's why atheists seem to me like goofy kooks, as fundamentalist in their own way as evangelical Christians. They have absolute, unshakable faith that there's no such thing as our Big Wild Friend. Agnostics I can understand better; they're like pre-orgasmic virgins who are at least open to the possibility of getting the full treatment. I offer these comments as a prelude to my prediction for you, Sagittarius, which is that you will soon have a very good chance to get up-close and personal with the Divine Wow. (If that offends you because you're an atheist, no worry. Nothing bad will happen if you turn down the invitation.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): For more than 11 years, a New Jersey man named Jesus Leonardo earned a salary of about $45,000 by gathering up and cashing in horse-racing tickets that had been accidentally thrown away by the people who bought them (tinyurl.com/ScrapTreasure). I suggest we make him your role model and patron saint for the coming weeks. Like him, you are in line to capitalize on discarded riches and unappreciated assets. Be on the lookout for the treasure hidden in the trash.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You're now in a phase of your long-term cycle when life will be extra responsive to your vivacious curiosity. That's why I encourage you to ask riveting questions. Ask whom? God, if that's your style; your higher self, if that works better; or sources of wisdom and vitality you respect, if you prefer that. Here are four queries to get you started: 1. "What is the most magnificent gift I can give to life in the next three years?" 2. "How can I become more powerful in a way that's safe and wise?" 3. "How can I cultivate my relationships so that they thrive even as my life keeps changing?" 4. "What can I do that will help me get all the love I need?"

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I was considering the possibility of getting me and my family members those GPS devices that allow you to locate your car if you've forgotten where you parked it. But then I had second thoughts. Wouldn't that be one additional thing encouraging us to let our memories atrophy? The conveniences that technology provides are wonderful, but at a certain point don't they start threatening to weaken our brain functions? I invite you to meditate on this issue, Pisces. It's time to have a talk with yourself about anything -- gadgets, comforts, habits -- that might be dampening your willpower, compromising your mental acuity, or rendering you passive.
