Horoscope for January 19, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

It behooves you to raise your goals a few notches higher than usual in the year ahead. Even if you have to convince yourself that you're capable of higher achievements, know that your chances for success are better than normal.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It doesn't look like any old accounts will be squared up with you, because, unfortunately, others might not show you the same consideration that you've shown them in the past.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- There's a possibility that, carelessly, you could talk to the wrong person and reveal something meant to be confidential. That which should be kept secret could become common knowledge.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Honestly examine your motives about your poor behavior toward a friend. If you're treating him or her badly because of envy, you need to clean up your act fast.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A failure to take a firm stance on an important issue could prove to be unforgivable to those who need your support. Trying to stay out of it makes you look like a traitor.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If helpmates do not live up to your expectations, the fault might not be entirely theirs. It could be due in most part to the faulty instructions you gave them.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Unless you've learned from past experiences to keep your guard up, you're destined to suffer the same unpleasant results again from someone with a smooth tongue and low motives.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Because neither you nor your mate are likely to be at your best when it comes to making a major decision, it would be smart to wait until at least one of you has your head on straight.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Unless you properly plan the logistics of your day, you could end up spending a lot of time being extremely busy but accomplishing little to nothing. Avoid all that wasted effort.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- This is one of those rare days when you could be too much of a risk-taker for your own good. If you go in where the odds are stacked against you, don't expect to be bailed out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your chart indicates that this could be one of those days when you simply can't believe in yourself and, as a result, have a tendency to throw in the towel just when victory is in sight.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Unless you find a balance in situations where you should be bold, you'll be unduly cautious. Conversely, when you should be wary, you'll end up being far too reckless.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If buying some special merchandise, don't permit your desires to exceed your means and cause you to spend beyond your ceiling price. You might end up much wiser, but sadder as well.
