SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Historical records suggest ancient Greek philosopher Democritus went blind late in life. There are different stories about why. One account says he did it to himself, gazing too long at the sun. It was his perverse way to solve a vexing problem: The torment of having to look at gorgeous women no longer interested in or available to him because of his advanced age. Don't do anything like that. Take the opposite tack: Keep focused on things that stir your deep attraction, even if you think you can't have them. Valuable lessons and unexpected rewards emerge.
