AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The Italian mattress company Sogniflex has created a bed with features designed to facilitate love-making. It has straps and handles, plus a trench that helps you get better traction. You might consider buying one for yourself. The astrological omens suggest it’s time to play with more intensity in the intimate clinches. You could also try these things: 1. Upgrade your licking and sucking skills. 2. Cultivate your ability to listen receptively. 3. Deepen your sincere appreciation for what’s beautiful about anyone you’re attracted to. 4. Make yourself even more lovable than you already are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): My $10-an-hour counsel only requires a few seconds to deliver. Here it is: “Never try to be someone you’re not. Discover what you were made for, and do it with all of your passionate intensity.” On the other hand, Pisces, my $100-a-minute wisdom is more complicated, subtle, and hard to impart in less than an hour of storytelling. Here’s a hint of it: There are times when you can get interesting and even brilliant results by experimenting with being something you’re not. Going against the flow of your instinctual urges and customary tendencies might tweak you in just the right way.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Apollo astronaut Russell Schweickart had a vision of loveliness while flying through outer space in his lunar module. “One of the most beautiful sights is a urine dump at sunset,” he testified. He said it resembles a “spray of sparklers,” as 10 million little ice crystals shoot out into the void at high velocity. As you feed your quest for a lusty life, Aries, I urge you to be as quirky and resourceful as Schweickart. Come up with your own definitions about what’s gorgeous and revelatory. Take epiphanies any way you can get them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): At the heart of this horoscope is a quote from Maya Angelou and its counsel will be essential to your success in the coming weeks. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,” said Angelou, “people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Can you see how valuable this principle might be for you, Taurus? If you hope to get what you desire, you should turn your empathy on full blast. If you want to get the love you think you deserve, be a master at making people feel good in your presence.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The coming week will be prime time to celebrate your eccentricities and cultivate your idiosyncrasies. Do you like ketchup on your bananas? Do you have a tendency to break out in raucous laughter when people brag about themselves? I really think you should make note of all the qualities that make you odd or unique, and express those qualities with extra intensity. That may grate on some people, true, but it should have a potent healing effect on you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Here are my questions: Will you thrust your foot across that imaginary line, or will you back away from it, scouting around for an escape route? Or will you shuffle on back to your comfort zone and caress your perfect daydreams? Personally, Cancerian, I’m hoping you will elect to do what’s a bit unsettling. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you should. If you make a bold move, make sure you’re not angling to please or impress me. Do it as a way to express your respect for yourself—or don’t do it.
