CAPRICORN: May 29-June 4


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 1948, Nelson Mandela began his fight to end the system of apartheid in his native South Africa. Eventually, he was arrested for dissident activities, sentenced to life imprisonment. He was jailed until 1990, when his government bowed to international pressure and freed him. By 1994, apartheid collapsed. Mandela was elected president of his country and won a Nobel Peace Prize. Fast-forward to 2008. Mandela, still considered a terrorist by the United States, had to get special permission to enter the country. You may not have an antiquated rule or obsolescent habit as horrendous as that, but it's past time to dissolve your attachment to outdated ideas, even if only mildly repressive and harmful.
