Grammar key: Asterisks equal *italics*

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran author Ursula K. Le Guin said that we

don’t just naturally know how to create our destinies. It takes research

and hard work. "All of us have to learn how to invent our lives, make

them up, imagine them," she wrote. "We need to be taught these skills;

we need guides to show us how. If we don’t, our lives get made up for us

by other people." I bring this to your attention, Libra, because the

coming weeks will be an excellent time to upgrade and refine your

mastery of these essential powers. What can you do to enhance your

capacity to invent your life? Which teachers and information sources

might be helpful?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1984, hip hop group Run-DMC was the

first to achieve a gold record in their genre, meaning they sold more

than 500,000 albums. Their next album sold over a million. They were

pioneers. In 1986, legendary producer Rick Rubin encouraged them to

do a remake of "Walk This Way," a song by the hard rock band

Aerosomith. The members of Run-DMC didn’t want to do it; they felt the

tune was in a genre too unlike their own. But Rubin eventually convinced

them, and the cross-pollination was phenomenally successful. The Run-

DMC-meets-Aerosmith collaboration launched a new genre that sold

very well. The song was later voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In

this spirit, and in accordance with current cosmic rhythms, I urge you

to try a bold hybrid or two yourself, Scorpio: blends of elements or

influences that may seem a bit improbable. They could ultimately yield

big dividends.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You Sagittarians periodically go

through phases when you specialize in stirring up fresh intuitions. I

mean, you’re always one of the zodiac’s Intuition Champions, but during

these special times, your flow becomes an overflow. You have a knack for

seeking and finding visions of the interesting future; you get excited by

possibilities that are on the frontiers of your confidence. From what I

can tell, your life in recent weeks has been bringing you these

delights—and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Take

maximum advantage. Aggressively gather in the gifts being offered by

your inner teacher.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Calling on my expert knowledge of

healing language and imaginative psychology, I have formulated a mantra

for you to use in the next six weeks. I suggest you say it five times after

you wake up, and again at mid-day, and before dinner, and before sleep.

It should help keep you intimately aligned with the dynamic groove that

the cosmos will be conspiring to provide for you. For best results,

picture yourself as glowing inside with the qualities named in the

mantra. Here it is: *StrongBrightFree ClearBoldBrisk DeepNimbleKind


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles

features displays that extol the musicians who’ve won Grammy Awards

over the years. A few years ago, a distinctly unfamous musician named

Paz Dylan made professional-looking fake posters touting his own

magnificent accomplishments, and managed to sneakily hang them on the

museum walls. They remained there for a month before anyone noticed.

I’m going to encourage you to engage in similar gamesmanship in the

coming weeks, Aquarius. It’ll be a favorable time to use ingenuity and

unconventional approaches to boost your confidence and enhance your


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "Relationships never stop being a work in

progress," writes author Nora Roberts. That’s bad news and good news.

It’s bad news because even for the most loving bond, you must tirelessly

persist in the challenging task of reinventing the ways the two of you fit

together. It’s good news because few activities can make you more

emotionally intelligent and soulfully wise than continually reinventing

the ways the two of you fit together. I bring these thoughts to your

attention because the coming weeks will be a fertile time for such

daunting and rewarding work.



Assume that pleasure and happiness doesn’t interfere with your

spiritual growth, but may in fact stimulate it.

Proceed on the hypothesis that cultivating delight and wonder might

make you a more ethical and compassionate person.

Imagine that feeling good has something important to teach you every

ARIES (March 21-April 19): "A person’s best ally is someone who takes

care of herself," says actress Susan Clark. I heartily agree. The people

with whom you can cultivate the most resilient bonds and most

interesting synergy are those who have a high degree of self-

sufficiency—those who take rigorous responsibility for themselves and

treat themselves with tender compassion. In the coming weeks, Aries, I

think it’s especially important for you to emphasize relationships with

allies who fit that description. Bonus! Their exemplary self-care will

influence you to vigorously attend to your own self-care.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): According to my reading of the astrological

potentials, the coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to take a

*vacation in reverse*. What’s that? It’s when you devote yourself to

renewing and reinvigorating your relationship with the work you love.

You intensify your excitement for the vocation or job or long-term quest

that teaches you important life lessons. You apply yourself with sublime

enthusiasm to honing the discipline you need to fulfill the assignments

you came to earth to accomplish.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): "If you are not having fun you are doing

something wrong," said comedian Groucho Marx. He was exaggerating so

as to drive home his humorous point, but his idea contains some

truth—and will be especially applicable to you in the immediate future.

According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you have a

temporary exemption from feeling frantically dour and unpleasantly

dutiful. As crazy as the world is right now, you have a cosmic mandate to

enjoy more playtime and amusement than usual. The rest of us are

depending on you to provide us with doses of casual cheer.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): "Leave the door open for the unknown, the

door into the dark," writes Cancerian author Rebecca Solnit, adding,

"That’s where the most important things come from." I think this is good

advice for you in the coming weeks. What exactly does it mean? How and

why should you do what she advises? My first suggestion is to reframe

your conception of the unknown and the dark. Imagine them as the source

of everything new; as the place from which the future comes; as the

origin of creative changes. Then instruct your imagination to be

adventurous as it explores brewing possibilities in the dark and the


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): "If something comes to life in others because of

you, then you have made an approach to immortality," wrote author

Norman Cousins. Whether or not you believe the "immortality" part of

his formulation, I’m sure you understand how fabulous it is when you

help activate beauty and vitality in someone. You may even feel that

inspiring people to unleash their dormant potential is one of the most

noble pleasures possible. I bring these thoughts to your attention, Leo,

because I suspect that you now have exceptional power to perform

services like these for your allies, friends, and loved ones. I dare you to

make it one of your top priorities.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): "The messiah will come when we don’t need

him any more," said author Franz Kafka. In that spirit, and in alignment

with current astrological omens, I will tell you that the precise help you

wish you could attract into your life will show up as soon as you make

initial efforts to provide that help to yourself. Here are some additional

nuances: The gift or blessing you think you need most will be offered to

you by fate once you begin giving that gift or blessing to yourself. A

rescuer will arrive not too long after you take steps to rescue yourself.

You’ll finally figure out how to make practical use of a key lesson as

you’re teaching that lesson to someone you care for.
