To Offend Everyone
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19): You're ready for a grand adventure - possibly involving a fame-and-fortune issue. You'll find it unexpectedly with a Scorpio - or could it be a Saj? This person is an audacious fire-and-ice type who'll ring your chimes professionally if not romantically. This week opens the most scintillating season of the year for you.

OK. I can do that. MSM is a Scorpio, for example, a triple Scorpio if memory serves: plenty of fire, not so sure about the ice. Sagittarius? Well, why not? A business adventure would be nice. Any kind of adventure would be nice. There's a rather bemused Capricorn I've always liked, but she's gone on without a backward glance. No chances there from an emotional standpoint, but business would be nice. I used up most of my fifteen minutes of fame in college. I believe in horoscopes in the sense I take the one's I like to heart and assume any I don't were written for another less fortunate Pisces who lives down the block.

Other than that, a good morning, the sun shining, the weather fine: another incremental step forward in the march toward health, wealth (from the sound of the prognostication) and happiness. Who's to argue with the delusional me against living a delusional life? Not I.

Later. A walk down the way thinking I'd sit in on the little jazz session they run on Sunday afternoons at my morning cafe, thinking better about it for whatever reason when I arrived, a jog over to the book store to browse, a walk over and around to the local supermarket for a bag of tomatoes. How impossibly healthy. Still, feeling good, ready for the evening.

Tomorrow, I believe, marks the day we begin to learn what Mr. Schwartzeneger has in mind. It's easy to fantasize when there are no specifics; it's easy to think, well, maybe he'll do the things that (brilliant) I think need to be done and for the moment remain quiet. Next week people will begin to find out. It could work out all right. It could work out all wrong. It will probably come out somewhere in the middle, a little something to offend everyone.
