Sagittarius: [11/23 - 12/21] You will finally make peace with that extra 10 pounds you are always carrying. Also, you'll find that before the holidays, your company lays you off and you can't afford to buy groceries.

Capricorn: [12/22 - 1/20] You will fall hopelessly in love with a member of another race/religion/nationality. Unfortunately, this will put an immediate end to your parents' subsidizing your cocaine habit.

Leo: [7/24 - 8/23] Your family will soon grow, Leo. Your sister will announce that she is pregnant with the baby of a Death Row inmate and that she expects you to help with the child-rearing (at least until his case is appealed).

Virgo: [8/24 - 9/23] Your pet theory will be validated. Everything you have ever eaten, smelled, or put in your toilet bowl will prove to be cancer causing.

Libra: [9/24 - 10/23] Consider all the options before making a financial decision. Victim of questionable financial advice, you will dump your entire life savings into
