LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Even our most sophisticated drilling machines have barely made pinpricks in the earth's surface. The deepest hole ever dug was 12,192 metres, which is just 0.2 per cent of the planet's 6,100-kilometre radius. I offer this up as a spur to your imagination, Leo. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to plumb further into the depths of anyplace or anything you're intrigued by - whether that's a subject you've always wondered about, a person you care for, the mysteries of life, or the secrets of your own psyche. You could reach the equivalent of 1,524,000 million metres into the Earth's innards.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): National Geographic speculates that most of the species on Earth are still unknown and unnamed (tinyurl.com/UnknownLife). While 1.2 million life forms have been identified by science, there may be as many as 7.5 million that are not, or 86 per cent of the total. I suspect that this breakdown is similar to the situation in your life, Virgo. You know about 14 per cent of what you need to know, but there's still a big frontier to explore. The coming months should be prime time for you to cover a lot of new ground - and now would be a perfect moment to set the stage for that grand experiment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I suspect that you will have a minor form of good luck going for you this week. It probably won't be enough to score you a winning lottery ticket or earn you a chance to get the answer to your most fervent prayers. But it might bring you into close proximity with a financial opportunity, a pretty good helper, or a resource that could subtly boost your stability over the long haul. For best results, don't invoke your mild blessings to assist in trivial matters like finding parking places or avoiding long lines at checkout lines. Use them for important stuff.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): "Try to be surprised by something every day," advises Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi in his book Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention. That's an inspirational idea for everyone all the time, but especially for you Scorpios right now. This is the week of all weeks when you have the best chance of tinkering with your rhythm so that it will thrive on delightful unpredictability. Are you brave enough to capitalize on the opportunity? I think you are. Concentrate your attention on cultivating changes that feel exciting and life-enhancing.
