You advise Jeff Sessions to seek political asylum in St. Petersburg … Florida. VIRGO (8/24-9/22) — You’ll find yourself with a lot more time on your hands now that Gov. Kay Ivey disbanded the 359 councils and committees you were serving on. You’ll invent a technique for azalea topiary. You advise Jeff Sessions to wear a pointy green hat and bake cookies. LIBRA (9/23-10/22) — Reading about how local businesses and corporations shortchange the school system by appealing tax appraisals, you’ll boycott and volunteer as a tutor in a poorly performing district. You advise Jeff Session to buy a boat and sail into the sunset.

You’ll advise Jeff Sessions to run for president. SAGITTARIUS (11/22-12/22) — Concerning the uproar over OWA’s “guests of a larger size” policy, you’ll be reminded again how this country is inching (no pun intended) toward the sedentary existence depicted in Disney’s “WALL-E.” You’ll advise Jeff Sessions to binge on TV and pizza.

GEMINI (5/21-6/21) — You’ll review the first two episodes of Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” and reach a theory that Hot Pie is actually the one true king.
