LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
A friend recently said to me, “You really try hard to avoid conflict, don’t you?” That surprised me. In my own perception of myself, I’m pretty combative, at least in the privacy of my own imagination. The injustice and suffering I see in the world make me mad, and I’m constantly plotting to overthrow the ignorant forces that are at the root of that bad stuff. It’s true that I almost never express naked hostility or engage in outright combat with anyone. But that’s because I think that the best way for me to fight the ugliness is to whip up lavish doses of beauty and truth and love. Sorry to be talking about myself so much, Libra, but it’s in a good cause: I urge you to be like me in the coming week.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
I don’t usually recommend that you text-message a cohort who’s sitting a few feet away from you in a meeting, or use your cell phone to call the cell phone of the person you’re lying next to in bed. But this would be a good week to do things like that. It’s an excellent time, you see, to experiment with how you communicate, to try alternate methods of conversing, to awaken unfamiliar responses as you engage with familiar people. You might want to write a letter in longhand to a comrade you see all the time, or sit down at a table together and exchange messages by drawing pictures rather than talking.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
In my astrological opinion, you should adopt a miscellaneous and serendipitous receptivity in the coming week; you should be extra responsive to the primal flux as its odd luck whisks you through in-between zones and fascinating grey areas. And yet I also think you should be profoundly picky about which of the thousand and one stimuli you allow to grab your full attention. In other words, make your mind wide open and allow it to wander freely, but give your favors to only the most piquant twists and tasty bits.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
To advertise its upgraded features, the search engine Ask3D.com rolled out a marketing campaign with a seductive catchphrase: “Instant Getification,” as in immediately acquiring your desired results. I’m borrowing that mantra, or at least half of it, for your horoscope. Your getification levels will be way up in the coming weeks. That doesn’t mean you will instantaneously and automatically obtain everything you crave without any effort. Rather, it suggests that you will have an enhanced power to summon the will and ingenuity and resourcefulness that will help you get what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’re entering an astrological phase when it makes sense to expand and dramatize your ego. In light of the poetic license that affords you, I’d like to introduce you to the concept of enlightened bragging. It will allow you to tout your own brilliance at the same time that you disarm anyone who might be tempted to sneer at you for doing so. The playfully self-mocking tone of your enlightened bragging will give you an opportunity to demonstrate your high opinion of yourself without feeling guilty or defensive. Here’s all you need to do to get started: Make yourself a T-shirt or bumper sticker that reads, “I am a Jenius.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Every now and then when the garbage I generate in a week’s time exceeds what one trashcan is able to hold, I have to make a special phone call to the office of the refuse and recycling service to request that they pick up an extra can. If I’m reading your astrological omens correctly, this is one of those times for you, at least from a metaphorical perspective: You need to get rid of more than your usual amount of useless junk and residual wastes--much more, probably, including a backlog of stuff you may not have even realized was garbage until now.
