Horoscope for January 8, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

When it comes to romance in your life, the year ahead could be an exciting one. Strong bonds are likely to be fused with someone you already have uppermost in your mind, heart and thoughts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don't allow a fast- talking friend to get you to do something that wouldn't serve your best interests, just because you don't want to hurt your pal's feelings. Be your own person.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you make a mistake that you normally wouldn't, it's apt to be due to the fact that you'll be doing one thing while daydreaming about another. Certain jobs demand total attention.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Normally you may be realistic about your financial affairs, yet you might take some kind of gamble on a quick fix that your common sense warns you against. Don't do it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Make it a point to be extremely orderly and methodical in all that you do. Unless you put back in its place everything you take out, you'll have a huge mess on your hands later.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your common sense and good judgment might be out to lunch, so you'll need to be extra careful when you open your mouth. Take special care not to let slip something that should remain in the vault.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you're not value- conscious when out shopping, you could easily be talked into buying a white elephant. Be especially careful if you are making a significant purchase.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's one thing to pay a compliment to someone who deserves it, but it's quite another when the person doesn't. Refrain from using flattery as a tool just to manipulate someone else.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It is extremely important that you are prepared to fend for yourself. Friends, family and even associates will not be around to help bail you out as they usually are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Because you're exceptionally susceptible to the opinions of others, be extra careful about your selection of friends. Pessimistic pals will diminish any optimism you have.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Since we don't always know who is watching us, it's important to be on our best behavior when out in public. Take care to not do anything that would reflect badly on your reputation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- An important judgment call should not be made in haste. Because initial information or testimony isn't likely to tell the whole story, give things more time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you don't have time to check out a new source, it might be best to restrict all expensive business transactions to familiar avenues that you know to be ethical.
