LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You’re coming to the climax of the season of fertile tension and productive arguments. (Let’s hope you haven’t allowed it to devolve into the season of fruitless disputes and awkward silence.) As you prepare to harvest the full potential of the opportunities that have been made available, I offer you three pieces of advice from the French essayist Joseph Joubert. 1. “Never cut what you can untie.” 2. “It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.” 3. “The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You won’t believe how talented you’re going to be at blending pragmatism and idealism in the coming days, Scorpio. You may be amazed at your knack for being down to earth and up in the clouds at the same time. Among the feats you could accomplish are the following: making money from doing what you love; acquiring crucial nuts and bolts for a long-deferred fantasy; and turning lead into gold just in time to make a big down payment on a dream boat, dream home or dream trip.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
A man in Santiago, Chile, won $250,000 in a contest held by his bank. There was only one catch: In accepting the money, Mario Habit had to abide by the bank’s stipulation that he spend all his winnings in one day. Summoning a manically relaxed concentration, he succeeded, paying off his substantial debts while also buying two cars and three apartments. I believe a comparable opportunity is about to come your way, Sagittarius. You will be offered a new resource or blessing that has to be used quickly in order for it to be fully available and effective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The phrase “new roses” can serve as an antidote to neurosis in the coming days—as a kind of magical spell. Invoke it whenever you’re in danger of getting undermined by either your own neurosis or someone else’s. If you notice, for instance, that your subconscious mind is spiraling down into a sour fantasy stirred up by one of your habitual fears, start muttering a cheerful round of “new roses, new roses, new roses.” If your allies engage in compulsive behavior that they tend to get stuck in when stress overflows, chant “new roses, new roses, new roses” in a blithe, sing-song tone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Few people realize that in the 15th century the Buddha was canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. He was officially called Saint Josaphat, a name that’s derived from the word “bodhisattva,” which refers to a deeply compassionate person devoted to becoming an enlightened being. Virtually every element of Josaphat’s life story as reported by the Church is a duplicate of the original legends about the Buddha. I expect to see a comparable theme unfold in your life in the coming weeks, Aquarius. I bet you will get credit or receive an honor or be given an acknowledgement that seems rather accidental, or comes from an unexpected source. Like the Buddha, you will richly deserve the reward, even though it may feel odd or askew at first.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
How would you go about relocating Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro to the south of France? How might you undo and fix the debacle of America’s occupation of Iraq? What steps could you take to creatively disrupt the pathological family patterns that have knocked you off-center for years? In 2008, I predict that you will have extraordinary potential to solve impossible problems like those. More than ever before, you will be able to attract the help and summon the inspiration necessary to accomplish goals that have previously seemed beyond your power. And it all starts now, Pisces.
