LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I suggest you make yourself alert for the return of at least one blast from the past. You may receive a communiqué from a forgotten sanctuary. A treasure that slipped from your grasp ages ago may become available again, especially if you pay close attention to borders and anomalies. Missing links may wander back in your direction, and old clues you haven't thought of in many moons might put you hot on the trail of a smoldering mystery you've been neglecting to investigate.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In a number of indigenous cultures, there's the tradition of the "joking relationship." Two members of an extended family, often a brother and sister-in-law, are expected to form a bond that revolves around them playfully teasing each other. If you don't have an ally like that in your life, Virgo, I urge you to get one. And if you already do have such a companion, raise your connection to an even higher level of loving mischief and jocular amusement. It'll keep you loose in just the right ways during the coming weeks and months.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): "The early bird may get the worm," says comedian Steven Wright, "but the second mouse gets the cheese." It's one of those times, Libra, when I advise you to be like that second mouse. A bit of procrastination will work in your favor. I want to offer some additional wisdom from Wright because his upside-down perspective is exactly what you need right now. (1) Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines. (2) The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up. (3) Hard work pays off in the future, but laziness pays off now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): "Dear Mr. Sensitive Astrologer: Let's get one thing straight. I don't want peace of mind! So stop trying to talk me into going after it! It's impossible to have it on this earth. Got that? And another thing. I don't care about your time-consuming emotional resolution stuff! I'm not interested in chasing after the unrealistic goal of being a nice person. I just want pure, raw, naked success--the kind of glory that makes me feel really proud of my powerful effect on people. That's it! So shape up and start giving me what I want in your little horrorscopes. -Truth-Telling Scorpio." Dear Truthy: I love to help my readers achieve glory that makes them feel proud of their powerful effect on the world. But in my opinion the best way to accomplish that is by cultivating peace of mind, emotional resolution, and kindness. By the way, it's now an excellent time to make great progress in this work.
