SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): The satirical comedian Margaret Cho dealt with a flood of ignorant criticism while growing up. She testifies, “Ever since I was called ugly and fat and hateful, I couldn’t understand what the words meant. Love has learned to hunt, hide, claim, own and defend itself. You may never have experienced such an extreme form of rejection, Sagittarius, but – like all of us – you’ve been bullied at times or undervalued just for being who you are. The good news is that the coming months will be a favorable time to do what Chu has done: hunt, stalk, claim, defend yourself and your loved one. It is time to intensify your efforts in this great project.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): Bad news: In 1998, Shawn Hopwood was sentenced to 12 years in prison for bank robbery. The good news: While incarcerated, he studied law and helped several fellow inmates win their legal cases, including one heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. After his release, he became a full-fledged lawyer, and is now a professor of law at Georgetown University. Your current predicament is nowhere near as severe as Hopwood’s was, Capricorn, but I hope your current kerfuffle can encourage you to achieve a much better recovery.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): “I stopped going to therapy because I knew my therapist was right, and I wanted to stay wrong,” writes the poet Clementine von Redduchs. “I want to keep my bad habits like charm on a bracelet.

I don’t mean that your challenges will be terrible or more difficult than usual. My point is that you will have unprecedented opportunities to create powerful new trends in your life if you are as brave and courageous as you can be.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Journalist Hedley Freeman interviewed Aries actor William Shatner when he was 90. She was surprised to find that the man who played Star Trek’s Captain Kirk looked 30 years younger than his actual age. “How do you calculate your strength?” asked him. “I ride a lot of horses, and I’m in awe of the world,” Shatner said. “I open my heart and engage in curiosity about how things work.” I suggest you adopt Shatner’s approach next week, Aries. Be intoxicated by the emotional richness of mystery and complexity. Feel the joy of how everything is unexpected and unexpected. Bask in the blessings of the beautiful and gracious questions that life sends your way.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Of all the things on earth, which is the most likely to be carelessly discarded and turned into trash? Cigarette butts, of course. That is why an Indian industrialist named Naman Guta is such a revolutionary. To date, he has recycled more than 300 million bits and turned them into mosquito repellents, toys, keys and compost, which he and his company have sold for more than a million dollars. I predict that in the coming weeks, you will have a similar ability to turn clothing and scraps into useful, valuable items. You will be an expert in recycling. Consider how you can achieve this metaphorically and psychologically.

Leo (July 23-August 22)Leo novelist Nicole Cross writes in her book: “All possible feelings do not yet exist.” Love history. “There are still those that are beyond our ability and beyond our imagination. Every now and then, when a piece of music that no one wrote, or something else that is impossible to predict, understand, or even describe, makes a new sense in the world. And then, a million times in the history of feeling, the heart rises and absorbs the impact. I suspect that some of these new temperaments will develop in you soon, Leo. I believe that your heart will absorb the influx of intelligence and passion.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Virgin writer Jeanette Winterson writes, “I’ve always tried to make a home for myself, but I haven’t felt at home in myself.” I’ve worked so hard to be a hero in my life, but every time I checked the homeless register, I was stuck on it.

I think you’re closer than ever to feeling at home—perhaps not exactly, but more than ever. I suspect that too. You have more than the usual ability to relate.

You might prefer not to come to definitive conclusions about anything, because it’s so much fun basking in the beautiful glow of prismatic ambiguity. You love there are five sides to every story. I’m not here to scare you about this prediction. As a person with three Libran planets in my chart, I understand the appeal of considering all options. But I would suggest you to take a short break from this trend. If you avoid making decisions in the coming weeks, they will be made for you by others. I do not recommend it. to be active
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)Scorpio poet David White famously states that “anger is the deepest form of compassion.” what does that mean? As long as it doesn’t result in violence, he says, “Anger is the purest form of thought. The inner living flame of anger always illuminates what we relate to, what we want to protect, and what we want to protect ourselves from.” We are willing to take risks. Invoking Whyte’s definition, I urge you to savor your anger in the days ahead.
