    horoscopes for week of September 2, 2004

    Aries (March 21-April 19)

    With gleeful regularity, the tabloids have been publishing photographic proof that numerous female celebrities have cellulite. Recent additions to the list include 23-year-old Christina Aguilera and 22-year-old Britney Spears. I predict that this trend will lead to a revolutionary shift in perception: Cellulite will be regarded as a mark of beauty-a seductive tattoo provided by nature itself. Many women will actively seek to cultivate it. I urge you to adapt this vignette as your official metaphor of the week, Aries. Take something you've thought of as a weakness or embarrassment, and turn it into an asset.

    Taurus (April 20-May 20)

    After consulting with my think tank, I've decided to temporarily decommission the bull as your power animal. Until the equinox, the rabbit will take its place. It's the only creature that makes symbolic sense for you right now, when both your libido and fertility are turned up to record levels. There's also another reason why the rabbit suits you. In many mythic traditions, the creature is regarded as a crafty trickster that uses playful stratagems to turn every situation to its advantage. This approach should be your modus operandi in the coming weeks.

    Gemini (May 21-June 20)

    Historians estimate that at least 25 percent of all the gold ever mined lies at the bottom of the oceans, stuck inside ships that have sunk. Similarly, Jungian psychologists believe that in the depths of our psyches, there are great treasures moldering away, unclaimed by our conscious egos. For you Geminis, this September is the diving season - the time when you're most likely to be successful if you descend into the murky abyss and try to retrieve those lost riches.

    Cancer (June 21-July 22)

    The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft has been flying around the planet Saturn recently. Reporting on its explorations, a story in USA Today had the headline, "Saturn Offers More Mystery, Less Certainty." I photocopied it and sent it to my astrological colleagues, many of whom suffer from a misguided certainty about Saturn's meaning. They dogmatically insist it's a harbinger of contraction and limitation--an oppressive tyrant sucking the fun out of life. But my research suggests the real story is more complex. Saturn can actually be a benevolent guide that pushes you to be more true to yourself. It helps you shed mediocre pleasures and trivial goals that distract you from your high-priority dreams. It forces you to be ruthlessly honest about what's most important to you. I wanted you to know these fun facts, Cancerian, since the ringed planet is in your sign, and will remain there, nudging you to develop the discipline that leads to more freedom, until July, 2005.

    Leo (July 23-August 22)

    In 1810, an inventor in London originated the technique of sealing food in tin cans to keep it fresh. His idea came into wide use in 1846, when companies began to mass-produce food in cans. But there was no such thing as a can opener until 1858. For 12 years, then, consumers had to make awkward use of hammers and chisels to liberate their food from the new-fangled containers. This story line is an apt metaphor for your current situation, Leo. Some time ago, you got hold of a potentially valuable resource, but you have yet to discover how to make it work for you in the best possible way. The coming weeks should change that, though. I bet you'll finally find or create your equivalent of the can opener.

    Virgo (August 23-September 22)

    In Greek mythology, Narcissus was the gorgeous demigod who had no desire for intimate relationships but fell desperately in love with his own reflection. From his name comes the word "narcissist," which refers to a person who is excessively self-involved, has an inflated sense of importance, and compulsively craves admiration. I've always suspected that Virgos are the least narcissistic sign in the zodiac. Many of you underestimate your self-worth and don't treat yourself with enough loving kindness. In fact, I sometimes get a mischievous urge to advise you to be *more* of a narcissist - like now, for instance. Here's an experiment I wish you would do: Spend 20 minutes in front of a mirror telling yourself how beautiful you are.

    Libra (September 23-October 22)

    Libran author William Faulkner (1897-1962) regarded his book, The Sound and the Fury, as his "most splendid failure." For a long time, the public didn't do much to dissuade him from that view. The book sold just 3,300 copies in the 15 years after it was published, and by that time most of Faulkner's other books were out of print. I believe the current state of your fate has some resemblances to that time in his life. On the other hand, your destiny in the next 12 months will have more in common with what happened for Faulkner in 1949, when he won the Nobel Prize for Literature, and sales began to pick up. Just as *The Sound and the Fury* had much to do with his award, I believe one of your own "splendid failures" will be a key to the renaissance you'll enjoy.

    Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

    In reviewing the film, "Catwoman," the San Francisco Chronicle's Mick LaSalle coined a phrase that describes a mood many of you Scorpios are now prone to: festive pessimism. Frankly, my dear, I would love to talk you into shedding that state. It may give you an aura of murky intrigue, but it's so much less than what the astrological omens say you could possess. The fact of the matter is that the cosmos wants to bless you with an abundance of emotional riches right now. If you agree to suspend some of your jaded attitudes and cynical ideas, you'll be showered with experiences that will justify a full-blown outbreak of festive optimism.

    Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

    Soon the stakes will be higher, the rewards greater, and the judges tougher. You'll have a chance to show who you really are in a bigger, bolder way, and that will be exhilarating. But you'll also be expected to show who you really are in a bigger, bolder way, which could be daunting. The key to success is for you to concentrate so hard on the fun parts of the challenge that you'll render the scary parts irrelevant.

    Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

    Between North and South Korea is a long, narrow strip of land called the DMZ. Designed to be a buffer zone where all human activity is prohibited, it has accidentally become a nature preserve beloved by white-naped cranes. The area is a paradise for the birds because it has an abundance of undisturbed marshland and is free of predators. Luckily, the cranes are so lightweight that they're in no danger of detonating the many land mines buried throughout the 370-square-mile area. Everything I just described is an apt metaphor for a situation or state of mind that's now available for your use, Capricorn.

    Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

    "If you want to give God a good laugh, tell Him your plans." So says an old Yiddish proverb. While that rule often holds true for most people, I believe you'll be exempt from it in the coming weeks. God is currently very receptive to your schemes, especially if they emphasize your readiness to give more beauty, truth, and love to the world. In fact, the more precisely you formulate an intention to be generous and soulful in everything you do, the more likely it is that the Creator will laugh *with* you, not *at* you, and cheerfully conspire to assist you.

    Pisces (February 19-March 20)

    "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes," says "Dilbert" cartoonist Scott Adams. "Art is knowing which ones to keep." According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Pisces, August was your time to embody the first part of Adams' formula. During these past few weeks, I hope you gave yourself permission to unleash many fertile booboos. September, on the other hand, should be devoted to carrying out Adams' second proposal. Which of August's missteps might have marked the raw, imperfect appearance of ideas that will eventually turn out to be useful and brilliant?

    Aries: (March 21—April 19)
    When you die, your name will not be found
    in the Book of Eternal Life. That's because
    you died, duh.

    Taurus: (April. 20—May 20)
    You're utterly unfit to survive in the world
    of advertising sales, but that's because it
    doesn't have the methane-rich atmosphere
    your species breathes.

    Gemini: (May 21—June 21)
    Your life story has all the elements of a
    classic revenge tale, or at least it will after
    Wednesday's company picnic.

    Cancer: (June 22—July 22)
    Just a few more months and you'll be able
    to point out historical inaccuracies in
    people's Halloween costumes.

    Leo: (July 23—Aug. 22)
    Unfortunately, unless New York drastically
    reforms the trampoline-zoning laws in the
    Empire State neighborhood, you'll just have
    to find a different way to commit suicide.

    Virgo: (Aug. 23—Sept. 22)
    You're starting to develop a sneaking
    suspicion that other people are having
    more sex, parties, and all-around fun than
    you are, which just proves that it takes you
    a while to catch on sometimes.

    Libra: (Sept. 23—Oct. 23)
    Marriage, with the levels of cooperation it
    demands, is not for everyone. So it's
    actually a good thing that it's illegal for you.

    Scorpio: (Oct. 24—Nov. 21)
    Not that it's really the stars' business, but
    you really should have lived your life so as
    to be more affected by the recent death of
    Czeslaw Milosz.

    Sagittarius: (Nov. 22—Dec. 21)
    You don't get to choose your parents, but
    your brilliant merging of dating services
    and time travel are about to change all

    Capricorn: (Dec. 22—Jan. 19)
    You'll be questioned by authorities and
    charged with criminal incompetence after a
    man you supposedly taught to fish dies of

    Aquarius: (Jan. 20—Feb. 18)
    Being "on call" does tend to take its toll on
    your personal life, but as the Hot Dog King,
    you've gotta expect that.

    Pisces: (Feb. 19—March 20)
    Nothing you do this week will be of note to
    people who don't look at the photos on
    page 27 of The Canadian Journal Of
    Infectious Diseases And Medical Microbiology.
