Horoscopes by Rob Brezsny

Week of January 5th, 2006


(November 22-December 21)
A few weeks ago a group of people in the Netherlands reserved a large hall in hopes of breaking the world record for falling dominoes. Their goal was to set up and then topple 4,321,000 of the rectangular black tiles. While they were working, a sparrow flew in an open window and accidentally knocked over 23,000 pieces. It was only a temporary setback, however. The record-seekers restored the prematurely fallen pieces and ultimately achieved their goal. I predict that this vignette will have a metaphorical similarity to your destiny in 2006. If you assign yourself an epic yet fun goal (which I hope you will), you'll probably experience an unforeseen interruption, but will prevail in the end. (P.S. Don't do anything like what the Dutch people did, which was shoot the bird.)

Normally my Expanded Audio Horoscopes cover just a week at a time. But the past two weeks and this week, I am offering explorations of the entire year ahead. To hear part three of my IN-DEPTH, LONG-TERM FORECAST FOR YOUR LIFE IN 2006, check out your Expanded Audio Horoscope. The reading costs $6. You can also listen to part one from two weeks ago and part two from last week.

You can also access the readings by phone at 1-900-950-7700 or 1-877-873-4888. (If you live in Canada, call 1-888-499-4425.) The cost is $1.99 per minute.
