SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): We call it “longing,” says poet Robert Haas, “because desire is full of endless distances.” You and the object of your yearning may be worlds apart even though right next to each other. There may be a vast expanse between you and a person you consider an intimate ally; your secret life and his or her secret life might be mysteries to each other. That’s the bad news. The good news? You’re in a phase when you have extraordinary power to shrink the distances. Get closer with ingenuity and courage.
