Grammar key: Asterisks equal *italics*

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Eighty-three-year-old author Harlan Ellison has
had a long and successful career. In the course of publishing hundreds of
literary works in seven different genres, he has won numerous awards.
But when he was in his thirties, there was an interruption in the upward
arc of his career. The film production company Walt Disney Studios hired
him as a writer. During his first day on the job, Roy Disney overheard
Ellison joking with a co-worker about using Disney characters in an
animated pornographic movie.. Ellison was fired on the spot. I am by no
means predicting a comparable event in your life, Aries. On the contrary.
By giving you this heads-up, I’m hoping you’ll be scrupulous and adroit in
how you act in the early stages of a new project — so scrupulous and
adroit that you will sail on to the next stages.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Are you an evolving Taurus or an unevolving
Taurus? Are you an aspiring master of gradual, incremental progress or a
complacent excuse-maker who secretly welcomes inertia? Will the theme
of your next social media post be “The Smart Art of Compromise” or “The
Stingy Glory of Stubbornness”? I’m hoping you will opt for the former
rather than the latter in each of the three choices I just offered. Your
behavior in the coming weeks will be pivotal in your long-term ability to
animate your highest self and avoid lapsing into your mediocre self.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you fly in a passenger jet from New York to
London, the trip usually takes more than six hours. But on January 8,
2015, a powerful jet stream surging across the North Atlantic reduced
that time significantly. With the wind’s extra push, several flights
completed the trip in five hours and 20 minutes.. I suspect you’ll have
comparable assistance in the course of your upcoming journeys and
projects, Gemini. You’ll feel like the wind is at your back.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Actor Keanu Reeves’ career ascended to a
higher level when he appeared as a lead character in the film *Speed.* It
was the first time he had been a headliner in a big-budget production. But
he turned down an offer to reprise his starring role in the sequel, *Speed
2.* Instead he toured with his grunge band Dogstar and played the role of
Hamlet in a production staged by a local theater company in Winnipeg,
Manitoba. I admire him for being motivated more by love and passion than
by fame and fortune. In my estimation, Cancerian, you face a choice that
in some ways resembles Keanu’s, but in other ways doesn’t. You shouldn’t
automatically assume that what your ego craves is opposed to what your
heart yearns for and your soul needs.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A Leo sculptor I know is working on a forty- foot-
long statue of a lion. Another Leo friend borrowed $30,000 to build a
recording studio in her garage so she can pursue her quixotic dream of a
music career. Of my other Leo acquaintances, one is writing a memoir of
her time as a black-market orchid smuggler, another just did four sky
dives in three days, and another embarked on a long-postponed
pilgrimage to Slovenia, land of her ancestors. What about you? Are there
any breathtaking challenges or smart gambles you’re considering? I trust
you can surf the same astrological wave.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): How sexy is it possible for you to be? I’m
referring to authentic soul-stirring sexiness, not the contrived, glitzy,
counterfeit version. I’m alluding to the irresistible magnetism that wells up
in you when you tap in to your core self and summon a reverent devotion
to your life’s mission. However sexy it is possible for you to be, Virgo, I
suggest you unleash that magic in the coming weeks. It’s the most
reliable strategy for attracting the spiritual experiences and material
resources and psychological support you need.



Every day, you have to wade through a relentless surge of soul-less facts.
The experience tends to shut down your sense of wonder.

Every day, you’re over-exposed to cynical narratives that have been
sucked free of delight and mystery. That’s why you have to make such
strenuous efforts to keep your world enchanted.

I like to think I can contribute to the sacred cause of feeding your sense
of wonder and enchantment. In fact, that’s one of my prime motivations
for offering you the free weekly horoscopes you read in this newsletter.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): According to my analysis of the cosmic omens,
your impact is rising. You’re gaining influence. More people are tuning in
to what you have to offer. And yet your stress levels also seem to be
increasing. Why is that? Do you assume that having more power requires
you to endure higher tension? Do you unconsciously believe that being
more worried is the price of being more responsible? If so, banish that
nonsense. The truth is this: The best way to manage your growing clout is
to relax into it. The best way to express your growing clout is to relax
into it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The immediate future will challenge you to
revisit several fundamental Scorpio struggles. For best results, welcome
these seeming intrusions as blessings and opportunities, and follow these
guidelines: 1. Your control over external circumstances will increase in
direct proportion to your control over your inner demons. 2. Your ability
to do what you want will thrive to the degree that you stop focusing on
what you don’t want. 3. Your skill at regulating and triumphing over chaos
will be invincible if you’re not engrossed in blaming others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I’m about to say things that sound
extraordinary. And it’s possible that they are in fact a bit overblown. But
even if that’s the case, I trust that there is a core of truth in them. So
rejoice in their oracular radiance. First, if you have been hoping for a
miracle cure, the next four weeks will be a time when you’re more likely
than usual to find it or generate it. Second, if you have fantasized about
getting help to address a seemingly irremediable problem, asking
aggressively for that help now will lead to at least a partial fix. Third, if
you have wondered whether you could ever retrieve a lost or missing part
of your soul, the odds are more in your favor than they’ve been in a long

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The French government defines books as
an “essential good,” along with water, bread, and electricity. Would you
add anything to that list of life’s basics? Companionship? Stories? Deep
sleep? Pleasurable exercise and movement? Once you identify your
“essential goods,” I invite you to raise the level of reverence and care you
give them. Take an oath to treat them as holy treasures. Boost your
determination and ability to get all you need of their blessings. The
coming weeks will be a favorable time to enhance your appreciation of the
fundamentals you sometimes take for granted.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.. 18): Buckingham Palace is the home and office
of the Queen of England. It has been the main royal residence since Queen
Victoria took the throne in 1837. But in earlier times, the site served
other purposes. The 17th-century English lawyer Clement Walker
described the building occupying that land as a brothel, a hotbed of
“debauchery.” Before that the space was a mulberry garden where
silkworms tuned mulberry leaves into raw material for silk fabrics. I see
the potential for an almost equally dramatic transformation of a certain
place in your life, Aquarius. Start dreaming and scheming about the

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Poet Carolyn Forché is a role model for how
to leave one’s comfort zone. In her early career, she earned writing
degrees at placid universities near her childhood home in the American
Midwest. Her first book mined material about her family; its first poem is
addressed to her grandmother. But then she relocated to El Salvador,
where she served as a human rights advocate during that country’s civil
war. Later she lived and wrote in Lebanon at the height of its political
strife. Her drive to expand her range of experience invigorated her poetry
and widened her audience. Would you consider drawing inspiration from
Forché in the coming weeks and months, Pisces? I don’t necessarily
recommend quite so dramatic a departure for you, but even a mild
version will be well rewarded.
