SCORPIO: Jan. 1-7


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1609, Dutch sea explorer Henry Hudson sailed to America and came upon what is now called Coney Island. Back then, it was a barren spit of sand inhabited by rabbits. It eventually became a dazzling resort – an "extravagant playground," according to the documentary "Coney Island." By the early 20th century, three sprawling amusement parks were packed onto its two square miles of land, plus "a forest of glittering electric towers, historical displays, freak shows, a simulated trip to the moon, the largest herd of elephants in the world and panoramas showing the Creation, the End of the World, and Hell." 2014 could feature your own Henry Hudson moment: You discover virgin territory that may become an extravagant playground.
