SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21)
Usha Lee McFarling reports in the LA Times that eerie omens are sweeping through the far north. Stretches of sea that are normally capped with thick layers of ice did not freeze last winter. Warm winds from the south, previously rare, have become common. Gray whales are preternaturally skinny. Willows are sprouting up where no trees have ever grown. Seasoned hunters can no longer read the coming weather in the sky. Lately you Sagittarians have experienced your own version of this unsettling ambiance in your personal sphere. Perhaps you'd even invoke a term the Inuit people, inhabitants of Canada's polar regions, use to describe an old friend exhibiting weird behavior: uggianaqtuq. Unlike the conditions in the Arctic, though, your strangeness is temporary. You may proceed on the assumption that dumb luck will begin ushering you towards a more fun and relaxing brand of craziness by May 14.
