AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Some spiritual traditions regard the ego as a bad thing. They imply it's the source of suffering – a chronically infected pustule to regularly lance and drain. I understand that. The ego may have been the single most destructive force in the history of civilization. I also think it's our sacred duty to redeem and rehabilitate it. After all, we often need our egos to get important things done. Our egos give us confidence to push through difficulties. They motivate us to work hard to achieve our dreams. Your assignment? Beautify your ego as you strengthen it. Build self-esteem without stirring up arrogance. Love yourself brilliantly, not neurotically. Express your talents in ways to stimulate others to express their talents.
