Horoscope for January 7, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

Because in the year ahead most of your hopes and expectations will be founded upon realistic premises and not on wishful thinking, many of your objectives will be accomplished in a pragmatic and realistic manner.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even if you sense that you have the upper hand over another, it doesn't give you license to take advantage of him or her. Be honest and fair.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When performing a service for another, keep accurate records of your time, effort and all the parts you're supplying. If you don't, a misunderstanding could arise down the line.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Upon occasion, you aren't too prudent about managing your resources, and this could be one of those times. Be extra careful whenever you have your checkbook in hand.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Keep your lips closed and your vest tight when it comes to important business or personal matters. If you don't, you can expect a loss of some friends and/or co-workers.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Stand up for your rights instead of knuckling under to an insulting big mouth. A mouse like him or her might have learned to roar like a lion, but he or she is still just a mouse, in reality.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be extremely careful if you get involved in an arrangement that requires a cash outlay. Make sure you know what you're doing, where your money is going and what it will get you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's commendable to be your own person, but it's not admirable to gratify your self-interests at the expense of another. Be mindful of how your behavior affects friends or companions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When formulating future plans, make sure they are predicated upon actual projections and not callow optimism. Miscalculating your future today could bring you grief on the morrow.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- There are some indications that you could be operating on a different plane than your friends. That's OK if both parties know and accept this. If not, a serious misunderstanding could arise.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It can be courageous to rush in where others fear to tread, but it can also be foolish if you wade into a no-win, no-benefit situation. Don't try to butt your head against overwhelming opposition.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If it's difficult for you to distinguish between false apprehensions and real, intuitive perceptions, you might forsake something that would be beneficial.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you are considering making an expensive, uninformed purchase, it might be wise to have a friend who's in the know check things out for you.
