SCORPIO: Jan. 15-21

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In Ben Schott’s book, “Schottenfreude: German Words for the Human Condition,” he dreams up new compound German words for use in English. One to serve you well next week: Fingerspitzentanz, which means “fingertips-dance.” Schott writes that it refers to “tiny triumphs of nimble-fingered dexterity,” like fastening a bracelet, tightening a miniscule screw, unknotting, removing a recalcitrant sticker in one unbroken peel, rolling a joint, identifying an object by touch alone, slipping something off a high shelf. Literally and metaphorically, you now have an abundance of this skill. Everything about you is more agile, deft and limber. You’re a master of Fingerspitzentanz.
