SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The alterations you make at home and to your lifestyle will take you back in time. Someone from your past will spark your imagination and help you revisit old goals. A change will mark the beginning of a new way to move forward.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Experience will help you make better choices now. Don't let emotional issues alter your course of action. Pick and choose whom you want to be around. Protect against takers and users. Don't get angry; get moving.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Important relationships should be nurtured. Getting along with others will allow you to accomplish more than you thought possible. Reach out to someone with knowledge about financial, health, or legal matters, and you will make better choices.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for more and better ways to use your skills and attributes. Putting together a plan can lead to good fortune if you do so with secrecy. The element of surprise, coupled with a splashy presentation, will show you know what you are doing.

Hypothermia and being blackout drunk: Winter in Iowa City:

Things to watch for:

• Slurred speech

• Stumbling

• Apathy, or no concern about your current state

• Confusion, poor logical reasoning

• Exhaustion

• Making poor choices, such as removing your warm clothing

• Poor coordination

• Bright red skin

If you see someone displaying these symptoms, here are some appropriate actions to take after calling 911:

• Test their mental capacity by asking a series of logic questions (i.e., who is the president, what have you consumed today, where are your pants?)

• Ask them gently to sit down to conserve energy; they are probably exhausted from their struggle in the tundra and/or the bathroom at Brothers.

• When possible, bring them indoors, remove wet clothing, cover in warm blankets to prevent them from further harm, and wait for the ambulance.
