AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): American author William Faulkner won a Nobel Prize for literature, an indication that he had abundant talent. His prose was often experimental, cerebral and complex. He was asked what he'd say to those who found it difficult to grasp his meaning “even after reading it two or three times.” His reply: “Read it four times.” My counsel to you is similar. When faced with a challenging event or situation taxing your understanding, keep trying to understand it even past the point where you'd usually quit. There are rewards.
