CANCER: Sept. 4-10
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land, the foundation of the most politically powerful nation on the planet. Yet, when it went into effect in 1789, it was only 4,543 words long – about three times the length of this column. The Bill of Rights, enacted in 1791, added a mere 462 words. By contrast, India's Constitution is 117,000 words, more than 20 times longer. If you create a new master plan for yourself in the months ahead, a compact version like America's will be just right. You need diamond-like lucidity, not sprawling guesswork.
