And some horoscopes:

Aries,

You will not accept a new duty as it is not falling under your competence, but your superior will try to force you. In love, he/she will complain because you are not paying enough attention to him/her. Tip: try to be compliant.

Don’t even think about sitting still, and don’t promise your companion that you will. You’ll be even more high-energy than usual, which is really saying something. You’ll find a productive outlet for all that energy. Just use your imagination.

Aries Horoscope for week of December 16, 2004

In 1874, a fire broke out in an underground coalfield in western China. It burned nonstop until 2004, when firefighters finally squelched it. In the intervening 130 years, 200 million tons of fuel went to waste, spewing out copious amounts of polluting gases. I nominate the denouement of this long-running drama to serve as your personal metaphor for early 2005. In January and February, you will finally douse a smoldering inner fire that has been a poor use of your ambition. This will set the stage for a fresh start. No later than your birthday, you will ignite a new blaze that’s both more efficient and more worthy of you.
