                        Astrologic Capricorn

                        (New Year’s 1977 Becomes 1978)

            CAPRICORN S: (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20): You’re a cold fucker whose sun sign,
               bridging one calendar year to the other, indicates slaves by the pair for
               the New Year. Your executive-executioner ability will keep them suf-
               ficiently servile, so your domestic scene should keep quite scrubbed
               up unless you prefer to live like the raunchy goat you are. On the first
               day of Christmas, budget some cold cash for the tattooing of at least
               six M’s this coming year with your capricious birth sign.
            CAPRICORN M: In the New Year, expect competition. Be everything
               your S desires. Be the genuine reflection of your Top’s affection. If
               by February you fall lax from his top style, get yourself together.
               Maintain. After all, your supportive imitation of him is not only the
               sincerest form of flattery, it’s also the fastest free lunch in the West.
               Beg him to tattoo you for Valentine’s Day.
            AQUARIUS S: (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19): On the second day of Christmas, tie
               your M to a tall pine in a cut-it-yourself lot. Pull out whatever ax you
               have to grind. Yell “Timber!” Take bets on which way he will fall.
            AQUARIUS M: Read Kilmer’s “Trees.” Tell your Top you’re pining for a
               good needling. Try to land on your face.
            PISCES S: (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20): On the third day of Christmas, prepare
               your New Year’s party. Buy imported champagne. Avoid using the
               cliche of a rented bubbly fountain.
            PISCES M: Douche thoroughly.
            ARIES S: (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): On the fourth day of Christmas, fill glass
               ornaments with piss. Hang them through the tits of an especially
               green M.
            ARIES M: Buy your S a pellet gun. Prepare to be decorated. Stand very
            TAURUS S: (Apr. 20 - May 20): On the fifth day of Christmas, buy a roll
               of barbed wire and a “how-to” book on macrame.
            TAURUS M: Begin to empathize with hanging ferns. Remember: a plant
               never speaks unless spoken to first.
