AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) In his Book of Imaginary Beings, Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges reports the following: "Chang Tzu tells us of a persevering man who, after three laborious years, mastered the art of dragon-slaying. For the rest of his days, he had not a single opportunity to test his skills." I bring this to your attention because my reading of the astrological omens suggests that you, too, may be in training to fight a beast that does not exist. Luckily, you're also in an excellent position to realize that fact, quit the unnecessary quest and redirect your martial energy into a more worthy endeavor.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Want to see a rabbit chase a snake up a tree? Go watch this video on YouTube: tinyurl.com/bunnywhipssnake. If, for some reason, you don't have access to YouTube, then please close your eyes and visualize a cute bunny harassing a six-foot-long snake until it slithers madly away and escapes up a tree. Once you have this sequence imprinted on your mind's eye, you will, I hope, be energized to try a similar reversal in your own sphere. Don't do anything stupid, like spitting at a Hell's Angels dude in a biker bar. Rather, try a metaphorical or 
psychological version.
