AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) In his book Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Tom Robbins talks about a gourmet who "gave up everything, traveled thousands of miles and spent his last dime to get to the highest lamasery in the Himalayas to taste the dish he'd longed for his whole life, Tibetan peach pie. When he got there . . . the lamas said they were all out of peach. 'Okay,' said the gourmet, 'make it apple.'" I suspect you'll be having a comparable experience sometime soon. You may not get the exact treat you wanted, but what you'll receive in its place is something that's pretty damn good. I urge you to accept the gift as is!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) "Having 'a sense of self' means possessing a set of stories about who we are," according to William Kittredge in his book The Nature of Generosity. He says there are two basic types of stories: The first is "cautionary tales, which warn us" and the refore protect us. The second consists of "celebratory" tales, which we use to heal and calm ourselves. I believe that you Pisceans are now in a phase when you primarily need celebratory stories. It's time to define yourself with accounts of what you love and value and regard as precious.
