“CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What if a billion Chinese people jumped up
into the air at the same exact moment? Would they create, at the
moment they landed, a shockwave that would cause an earthquake on the
opposite side of the world, in Chile and Argentina? No one knows. I’d like

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make sure that no one except you will be able to tear asunder what you join together in the coming days. Tie knots that will never slip. Build bridges that can’t be burned. Send emails that cement new alliances and plug yourself into networks that are crackling with high-energy connections. Stock up on nails, safety pins, staples, tape, and glue. Be sticky, Capricorn! Just one caution: Do not marry your fortunes to anyone unless they’re willing to be your devoted, synergistic warrior as much as you are their devoted, synergistic warrior.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I don’t care what you feel this week, as long as you don’t feel nothing. Get inflamed with hunger or justice or sadness or beauty or love, but don’t submit to apathy. Don’t let yourself be shunted into numbness. You can’t afford to be cut off from the source of your secret self, even if it means having to feel like hell for a while. And the odd thing is that if you’re willing to go through hell, you won’t have to go through hell. So to hell with your poker face and neutrality and dispassionate stance. Be a wild thing, not a mild thing.
In the last seven days, the following people I know have celebrated birthdays: Tim, me, Martin, Agnes, Laurie, and Greg. There have been multiple birthday dinners and phone calls from family and intriguing packages in the mail. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had much time to attend to any of the above – but thank you all for your thoughts and wishes! Also, happy birthday to Hannah, Karla, and Paul, all of whom celebrate next week.
