CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A few single friends of mine use the dating
site OkCupid to meet potential lovers. One woman got the following
notice: "We are pleased to report that you are in the top half of
OkCupid's most attractive users. How can we say this with confidence?
Because we've tracked click-thrus on your photo and analyzed other
people's reactions to you . . . Your new elite status comes with one
important privilege: You will now see more attractive people in your
match results. Also! You'll be shown to more attractive people in their
match results. And, no, we didn't send this email to everyone on OkCupid.
Go ask an ugly friend." According to my analysis of the astrological
omens, Capricorn, you will soon receive a metaphorically comparable
message, not from OkCupid, but from the universe itself.
