Events both unexpected and inevitable can be turned to your advantage in the year ahead. Your ability to make the best out of what you are given will greatly help your financial or career prospects. Opportunities will come from those you have worked or played with in the past.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Plan to have fun. Get out with friends or take a day trip that will open up new opportunities for relationships, hobbies or a self-improvement project.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Emotions will escalate and troubles will surface if you aren’t careful about how you react to the day’s tumultuous events. Step back and keep a cool head. Let others speak first.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t take chances that can lead to arguments or injury. Discipline and common sense will be your friends; impulse, your enemy. Try to make some small but necessary changes on the home front.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you’ve been feeling down in the dumps or green around the gills, a lifestyle change might be in order. Don’t allow anyone to meddle in your affairs.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Focus on things you need to fix at home. If you take care of your responsibilities, you will feel better about your current situation. Avoid interacting with someone who upsets you.
