AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) “One should be light like a bird, and not like a feather,” said French poet Paul Valery. How do you interpret that thought? In the book The Science of Self-Control, here’s how Howard Rachlin expands on Valery’s idea: “We need to be spontaneous, but only in the context of some framework that allows us to attain higher levels of spontaneity; a feather is a slave to the wind, while a bird uses the wind.” Take heed! Your creative flights will go further and last longer if you have a solid foundation to take off from.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Let’s call today Sigh-Day. Tomorrow, too, and the next day, and the two days after that. During these five Sigh-Days, you should feel free to let out big, deep sighs at a higher rate than usual. Allow yourself to be filled up with poignant thoughts about life’s paradoxical mysteries. Give yourself permission to be overwhelmed with emotions that are midway between lamentation and reverent amazement. For even better results, indulge in some free-form moaning during your five Sigh-Days. That’ll help you release your full backlog of tension and give you more appreciation for the crazy beauty of your fate. P.S. Try not to whine, though.
