CAPRICORN: April 17-23

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “The ideal piano player is the one who wants to be the piano,” says a character in Thomas Bernhard’s novel “The Loser.” He adds: “I say to myself every day when I wake up, I want to be the Steinway, I want to be the Steinway itself.” Apply this to your situation. In other words, merge with the tool you want to master. Immerse yourself in the skill you’re working to perfect — disappear in it. In your imagination, be totally united with the thing, person or experience you desire.
