SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You're pretty smart, Scorpio, but would you like to become even smarter in 2008? It's quite possible that you will get more skilled at managing and solving your personal problems. You may also become a better judge of character and develop a brilliant knack for knowing what's good for you. There's one main thing you have to do in order to ensure that you will fully activate these potentials: Become more generous. Here's your thought for the year, courtesy of Eleanor Roosevelt: "The giving of love is an education it itself."
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The number of millionaires on the planet increased more than nine percent last year. Judging from the astrological omens, I'm betting that the growth rate in the coming year will be similar. A disproportionately large amount of the newly wealthy in 2008, however, will be Sagittarians. And even those of you who don't make it to a million will probably get richer quicker than you have in more than a decade—especially if you make that your intention.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The Greek philosopher Aristotle said that when new facts and ideas emerge, we should be willing to coin fresh words to convey the unfamiliar information. Do you agree? If so, be ready to dream up a steady stream of new terms in 2008. I bet you'll encounter more novelty than you have since 1996. Dead language and stale clichés won't be sufficient to wrestle the meaning out of your unprecedented experiences. To jumpstart your receptivity to made-up words, try this one: freakomancy. It refers to the art of divining the future by noticing the most unusual and anomalous elements present in any given situation..
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One of the planet's highest active volcanoes is Mt. Cotopaxi in Ecuador. It also happens to be the site of the world's only equatorial glacier. Please visit this complex place sometime in 2008. If that's not possible, at least promise me that you will vividly imagine yourself there. Why? Because in order to bring out the best in yourself in the coming months, I think you will need to be fueled by a visceral sense of what it's like when primal opposites coexist.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): When I first learned about Jupiter in grade school, my science textbook said the planet had 12 moons. Years later, thanks to better telescopes and data returned by America's Voyager spacecrafts, we know that at least 63 moons are orbiting the solar system's largest planet. I expect an equally dramatic expansion will unfold for you in 2008, Pisces. At this time next year, your social network should be much bigger than it is now. You may even be at the center of a Jovian-style web of connections.
