My Indy Horoscope

According to Rob Brezsny's "Free Will Astrology":

"Sagittarius: There are now as many people working at Wal-Mart stores as there are high-school teachers. Can anything be done to change this depressing state of affairs? Well, it so happens that the time is ripe for you Sagittarians to cultivate your skill at sharing what you know. It's also an excellent phase to cultivate your ability to inspire and energize your fellow humans. So if just 1 percent of you use this pregnant moment as a springboard to launch careers as high-school educators, Wal-Mart employees would no longer out-number you and your heroic colleagues. And even if you decide not to go in that direction, I hope you at least think more about what you have to teach the world, and take steps to give your gifts more aggressively."

There's so much cannon-fodder here. I don't know where to begin.

Comments:
Is this dude a high school teacher?
 
Aries:

"Baksheesh" is a term derived from the Persian term for "gift." Among travelers in the Third World, it has several meanings, among which are these: (1) bribes paid to authorities to get them to stop hassling you; (2) tips given to strangers who insist on being of assistance by, say, opening a door for you even if you don't want them to. I believe baksheesh will soon serve as an apt metaphor for you, Aries. Be ready to offer compensation to people in order to get them to both stop bothering you and stop "helping" you. (P.S.: The compensation you give may not necessarily be in the form of cash. It could be flattery, presents, or useful information.)
