CAPRICORN: Aug. 14-20
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The Paris Review did a story on novelist William Gass. The interviewer asked him why he wrote his books. That was "a very dumb question," he sneered. Nevertheless, he answered, saying, "I write because I hate. A lot. Hard." In other words, his primary motivations for expressing himself creatively were loathing, malice and hostility. Do not use him as a role model. Not now. Not ever. But especially now. It's essential to your long-term health and wealth that you're not driven by hate in the weeks ahead. Just the opposite: The more you're driven by love and generosity, the better chance you have of launching a long lucky streak.
