The coming year plays out like the Katy Perry song: It's a cosmic growth hormone, and we're adolescents morphing into the new people we're going to be. This growth spurt for humankind bonds us together like a high school class, all going through it together. The changes may be small, but there are so many of them that, by this time next year, some of us will be unrecognizable from the people we are right now!
It starts right at the top of the year. There's a heavenly Happy New Year card in the form of the Quadrantids meteor shower the first week of January, ushering in the truly unusual 12 months to come. For starters, it's extremely rare to have four solar eclipses -- and two lunar eclipses -- in the span of a single year.

Dads come in all signs, shapes and colors. In honor of giving props to our pops, here's a sign-by-sign breakdown you can share with your old man while he tries on his new necktie and gloats over his "#1 Dad" balloon.
Macho, macho dad -- the super-hero daddy / emperor of the house! This firebrand father is all fun and games until somebody's ego gets hurt -- preferably not his.
