Horoscope for January 16, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

The very goals you considered to be special are likely to be relegated to the rear ranks in the year ahead, replaced by some new targets that you'll deem both potentially profitable and more exciting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Unless you are extremely mindful of your behavior at a social gathering, a sensitive friend might misread what you say or how you act and end up with hurt feelings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Being impulsive or too restless could be the precursor of unsound reasoning. It could cause you to make some unwise changes in situations that are running smoothly.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you want to make a good impression on others, the last thing you should do is boast about or embellish your achievements. Nothing turns others off faster than a braggart.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't count your chickens before they're hatched, because financial trends might not be what you think they are. Believing you can get the funds isn't the same as having them in your hot little hands.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Usually you're bright enough not to succumb to flattery, but someone who is a master at compliments is likely to get you to lower your guard. Watch out when they try to take advantage.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There's only a ghost of a chance that you'll be able to achieve what you set out to do, mostly because you'll be too busy handling things for others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Just because someone is intriguing is no reason to get too deeply involved too quickly. He or she might have lots of charm but little substance.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Bank only on yourself and not on Lady Luck to help you achieve a complicated objective. Chances are, when you need her the most she'll be cavorting elsewhere.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- To assuage your ego, you might pretend to be knowledgeable about something and suffer extreme embarrassment when asked to school others on that particular subject.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It behooves you to avoid involvements with those who are careless and/or extravagant with their finances. You might have to cough up their share when they can't pay.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- In order to avoid a future misunderstanding, you should make sure all agreements are negotiated with extreme care. All participants must know the ground rules and be willing to follow them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It's not a good idea to pretend to have taken care of something when you clearly haven't, thinking you won't get caught. You can bet your bottom dollar you will.
