AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) On reddit.com, Kaushalp88 asked the question, “What is the most badass thing that you have ever done, but that other people weren't impressed by?” Here's his own story: “I was at an ice-cream shop. At the exit, there was a small raised step I didn't see. I tripped over it with my ice cream cone in my right hand. The ice cream ball sprung out of the cone. I instinctively lurched my left hand forward and grabbed it, but at the same time I was already falling toward the pavement. I tucked my head into my chest and made a perfect somersault, rising to my feet and plopping the ice cream back in the cone.” I suspect you will soon have comparable experiences – unusual triumphs and unexpected accomplishments. But you may have to be content with provoking awe in no one else beside yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) “Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.” So says a Swedish proverb. Can we talk about this, please? Of course there are real hazards and difficulties in life, and they deserve your ingenious problem-solving. But why devote any of your precious energy to becoming embroiled in merely hyped-up hazards and hypothetical difficulties? Based on my analysis of the astrological omens, now is a propitious time to cut shadows down to their proper size. It's also a perfect moment to liberate yourself from needless anxiety. I think you'll be amazed at how much more accurate your perceptions will be as a result.
