LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There are two scientific terms for tickling. "Knismesis" refers to a soft, feathery touch that may be mildly pleasurable. It can be used to display adoring tenderness. The heavier, deeper kind of tickling is called "gargalesis." If playfully applied to sensitive anatomy parts, it provokes laughter. Planetary alignments say both of these are rich metaphors in the days ahead. Be extra alert for opportunities to symbolically tickle and be tickled. An allegory: If you do the knismesis thing beneath the snout of a great white shark, you can hypnotize it.
