Past investments can pay off and you could get a sum of cash from a sideline or hobby, advancements at work, a prize or inheritance. You also have a better chance of a lottery or casino win than in previous years. Although more money comes your way, you could also have more expenses, which in your case are likely incurred by necessity rather than extravagance.
Some solid but flexible money guidelines can help you achieve your dreams in terms of financial success, but don't expect to stay within a strict budget. It simply won't happen in a Horse year. Beware also of investing in fly-by-night companies or in businesses with more ideas than action. Be sure all the numbers add up.

Capricorn Health & Happiness
The Horse year is generally a healthy and active one. You may have some downtime due to minor afflictions such as sinus infection, headaches or bouts of malaise. You may also be more prone to injuries or inflammation in the joints, especially the hips, knees and ankles. Fresh water can be healing, but too much humidity in your environment can adversely affect your health.
Pluto retrograde in the late spring and summer months can coincide with mental health problems or increased emotional sensitivity. Nervous anxiety can take its toll throughout the year. Watch out for excess body tension, illness due to suppressed emotions, and oral habits such as nail-biting, grinding your teeth or overeating.
Exercise is important this year. You can maximize your energy flow and release excess tension with cycling, jazz dancing, brisk walking, table tennis, improvisational comedy or team sports such as basketball or beach volleyball. Activities such as gardening, pottery or walking meditation can help stabilize and calm the mind. Free your creativity through expressive media such as abstract art or poetry.
The best colors for health and happiness this year include pink, magenta, lilac, champagne and other off-whites, pure blue, misty blue, dark chocolate, olive green, moss green, saffron and yellow gold. Bright reds are lucky in the center of your home and in the southwest, but unlucky in the east and southeast. In the east, elements of metal such as bells or copper coins can be fortunate for health and well-being.
Best months for health: May, June, November, December
Worst months for health: July, September
