VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Leonardo da Vinci created the painting “St. Jerome in the Wilderness” around 1480. It now hangs in the Pinacoteca  Vaticana, a museum in Vatican City. For several centuries, though, the  treasured work of art was missing. Legend tells us that in the early 19th  century, Napoleon’s uncle found the lower half of the painting in a junk  shop in Rome. Years later he stumbled upon the top half in another back  alley, where it was being used as a wedge in a shoemaker’s bench. I  foresee the possibility of a comparable sequence unfolding for you in  2014, Virgo. You just may manage to restore a lost beauty to its proper place of honor, one step at a time.
