Horoscope for February 3, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

There is a good possibility that two of your innermost hopes and desires will be realized in the approaching solar cycle. You can thank Lady Luck for her strong influence in helping bring them to fruition.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A hunger for instant gratification could cause you to spend far more than you should by purchasing something that you know will be on sale next week. Be more disciplined.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Courtesy and politeness are always extremely important when dealing with others. If you forgo these graces and act grumpy, it will diminish your popularity with the very people you most like.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you wear your heart on your sleeve, someone whom you feel strongly about could seriously wound you. Don't allow your emotions to get in the way of reality.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Get an understanding in advance that each person will pay his or her own way if you are going out with a friend who always seems to leave the table just before the bill arrives.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Unless you treat critical career matters with the seriousness they deserve, you could relax your diligence, start coasting and lose much of the progress you already made. Stay on top of things.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't let one of your greater assets -- the ability to assess situations logically -- to lie fallow. It might be fun to be a wishful thinker, but it's far better to be a realistic one.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Should the possibility of a misunderstanding arise between you and a friend over something rather silly, straighten it out immediately. If you don't, it could get blown way out of proportion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone who has disappointed you in the past by letting you down has no problem doing it again. Don't put too much stock in any of his or her promises.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Regardless of how badly a certain person wants to try, don't allocate work of an artistic nature to a person whose talents don't run in that vein. Find a way to spare his or her feelings.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Under most conditions you are not a clingy person, but there's a good chance you might attempt to hang on to someone who wants to exit the scene. Refrain from doing so -- it'll make you look bad.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you might be pretty good at making promises, you could have a hard time fulfilling them. Avoid making any commitments.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Avoid using flattery to get others, such as your co-workers, to do things for you. If insincerity is perceived, it might actually get them to plot against you instead.
