VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Seventy-five percent of all adults confess they would like to have sex in the woods at least once in their lives, and yet only 16 percent say they have actually enjoyed that thrill. If you're one of the 59 percent who would like to but haven't, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to make it happen. Your capacity for pleasure in wild places will be at a peak, as will your courage for exotic adventures. In fact, I suggest that between now and May 21 you consider carrying out three fantasies that have been marinating in your imagination for many moons.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) It's time for the Big Squeeze. All the contradictions in your life are coming up for review. You will be asked to deal more forthrightly with enigmas you've been avoiding, and you will be invited to try, try again to unravel riddles you've been unable to solve. Does all that sound a bit daunting? It could be. But the end result should be evocative, highly educational and maybe even exhilarating. The scintillating play of opposites may caress you with such intensity that you'll experience what we could refer to as a metaphysical orgasm.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) In the coming weeks, I would love to see you get excited about many different people, places, animals and experiences. And I hope you will shower them with your smartest, most interesting blessings. Do you think you can handle that big of an outpouring of well-crafted passion? Are you up for the possibility that you might blow your cover, lose your dignity and show how much you care? In my opinion, the answer is yes. You are definitely ready to go further than ever before in plumbing the depths of your adoration for the privilege of being alive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Here's poet James Schuyler: "It's time again. Tear up the violets and plant something more difficult to grow." In my opinion, that's almost the right advice for you these days. I'd prefer it if you didn't actually rip out the violets to make room for the harder-to-grow blooms. Would it be possible to find a new planting area that will allow you to keep what you already have in the original planting area? One way or another, I think you really should give yourself a challenging new assignment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) "Dear Dr. Brezsny: For five years my wife and I have been married but still have made no children. We have consulted uncountable physicians with no satisfying result. Please predict a happy outcome for our troubles. When will the stars align with her womb and my manhood? She: born December 31, 1983, in Chakdaha, India. Me: born January 7, 1984, in Mathabhanga, India. -Desperate for Babies." Dear Desperate: I'm happy to report that you have entered a highly fertile period. It's already going strong and will culminate between May 16-23. I suggest you jump on this sexy opportunity. You couldn't ask for a better time to germinate, burgeon and multiply.
