Aries: 2016 brings a year of personal growth and challenges. It shows the way to face your greatest fears and overcome them with your innate personal strength. There is the possibility of a new job or business venture. This is also a year of spiritual awakening. Make your setbacks the stepping stones to wisdom and gain a broad spiritual outlook to shape the course of your life. 2016 bodes well for romance and marriage. Work on your relationships with patience and persistence for a brighter personal life. Abstain from risky speculative ventures, anger and outrage, and binge eating.
Lucky colour: Flaming red
Taurus: 2016 is set to be the year of adventure and fun for the shy, stubborn Taurean. This may be the time you have been waiting for to fulfill all your secret desires, take that long dreamed-of vacation to an exotic destination, or to ask the girl/boy you have been secretly admiring out on a date. You may want to adopt a new faith or take on a new philosophy, but do think about the long term impact on your life before you make drastic changes based on an impulse. This is perhaps the right time to get back together with an old flame and start on a healthy diet.
Lucky colour: Fuchsia pink
Gemini: 2016 is the year of retrospection and learning. Caution is the keyword. You may want to double check your To Do list and take time out to sit back and analyze how far you have made it in the direction of your dreams. This may sound dull to the highly energetic Gemini, but it is a necessary phase of peaceful contemplation that will let you forge ahead as the year wanes. This year, pay special attention to your family, close friends, and partner and take time off from your overflowing schedules to make them the centre of your attention.

Cancer: Change. That is the one word that defines 2016 for you. From small home renovations to major changes in work and lifestyle, this year may change the world as you know it. Home has always been the centre of your focus. This is the year to focus on your career and growth as well. Open up to the world of opportunities that presents itself this year. Instead of remaining inimical to change, make this an opportunity for growth and development. Love and marriage take a beautiful turn and make life sweet for you this year.

Leo: Magnanimous and generous Leo, 2016 is the year to party hard, both with your colleagues and with your friends. This is not a year for drastic changes, but for fun and happiness peppered with the monotony of everyday living and work. This is the year to make grand plans for the future. Take time and plan in details. Make a commitment – to love, to building quality relationships, family bonding, and family outings. Your tendency to overspend may cause some financial strain; save up for the future and look at eating healthy.
Lucky colour: Burnt ochre and all shades of orange
Virgo: Finances and financial restructuring take up most of your time and energy this year. You may start off with a new job, a career change, an entrepreneurial venture, or business expansion.

Libra: 2016 is a year that will call upon all your tact and charm to solve difficult situations and resolve communication stalemates.

This is the time for reunions, networking, and hosting. Concentrate on acquiring real estate and new property this year.
Lucky colour: Soft pinks and pastels
Scorpio: Scorpio is always a force to reckon with. This is a year to let go of all restraints and achieve the most. Seek clarity and indulge in charity work. In all these efforts, however, do not strain yourself or overwork yourself. Your tendency to fester your concerns may lead to unnecessary stress and consequent health hazards. 2016 is the year to seek answers and responses to the big philosophical questions bothering you. Time to adopt a pet, take up a hobby, and cultivate your passions as well.
Lucky colour: Maroon and black
Sagittarius: Bold, risk-takers Sagittarius, this is not the time to gamble. Relationships require special tact and attention as love affairs turn torrid.
