stars for the week

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your theme in the coming days is "enchantment on demand." You're in an aggressively elegant grace period- a time when you have the right to insist on being delighted. It's as if you've been granted poetic license to ask for and receive not just any old mediocre pleasure, but rather intriguing, ennobling pleasure. So don't sit back and hope that sublime fun will accidentally come your way. Know that you have the authority to command its arrival front and center.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In American psychotherapy, the first question many practitioners ask their new clients is essentially "What did your parents do to you to mess you up so badly?" One of my Japanese friends tells me that in his country, a therapist is more likely to ask, "What did your parents do for you? How did they nurture and support you?" Without dismissing the possibility that your mom and dad did inflict damage on you, Aquarius, I'd like you to concentrate on the Japanese-style inquiry for now. While you're at it, meditate on these themes as well: What are the best things that happened to you when you were growing up? What did your extended family and community give you that you've never fully appreciated?

firstly, i think i am going to like my capricorn side a lot this week. i have permission to command enobling pleasure with authority!

and on the aquarius side of things, well, i have thought long and hard over the last few years about what my family has given me. so far the list includes unconditional love, an appreciation of eccentric and quirky, a healthy disrespect for the concept of 'normal', and a passion for old Kombis that smell like melted surfboard wax and fishing bait.
