Capricorn take a step back to gain some perspective

Horoscopes for Jan. 12

  • Jan. 12, 2018 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year brings forward many opportunities that you will want to jump on. You’ll quickly recognize that you can’t pursue them all. Your ability to discern the implications of different choices, both negative and positive, is likely to emerge. If you are single, you could get into dating, enjoying the activity as much as the person. You might not want to commit until you are absolutely sure you’re ready. If you are attached, the two of you work on pursuing a mutual interest together. Your actions often reflect your perspective about your relationship. SAGITTARIUS understands you almost too well for your comfort.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You have a lively, energetic personality, and you don’t like to play it safe. Get down to the basics, and allow a close friend or loved one to have more say on an important decision. Be careful about how you choose to react and/or respond. Tonight: Choose a favorite stress-buster.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You sense that others need more control than they have right now. Allow those around you to express their desires. What might have been an easy choice for you could be difficult for someone else. Remember, you carry a lot of responsibility. Tonight: Say “yes” to a request.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Reach out to others. You might not be able to see a loved one taking a stand, so you will instead. As a result, you’ll take off and start handling a problem. Others seem grateful that you take charge with the style and endurance that you do. Tonight: Go off and join friends.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You have your hands full and a lot of ground to cover. Your sense of humor emerges when dealing with a friend who could be too adventurous for his or her own good. Rather than verbalize a judgement, let this person make his or her own discovery. Tonight: Accept an offer.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You seem to be heading into a creative, dynamic period. Others gravitate toward you, as they seek out your feedback and suggestions. Do not be surprised by the many invitations that head your way. Embrace an opportunity to get to know someone better. Tonight: All smiles.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be careful when dealing with a family member who seems to be all over the place. Your friends and loved ones want to make plans with you. Think in terms of whether you want to get together. Check out a financial matter with care. Talk to an expert. Tonight: Stay centered.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You could be exhausted by life’s demands. Others seek you out to join them. Consider spending only a few minutes out and about, and support yourself in saying “no.” Make it OK to honor a different set of plans, even if it is just heading home. Tonight: Screen your calls.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might want to make choices that are less costly, or come up with plans that don’t make you so uptight about the costs of what you are doing. Remember, the company is what counts, not how much you spend. Tonight: Even if you feel lucky, make reasonable choices.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your personality melts barriers. Others seem to open up more around you. You seem to embody a new sense of adventure, and might want to head in a new direction. Others love that you encourage them to be more spontaneous. Tonight: Look at what spontaneity leads to.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Know when to take a backseat and head in a new direction. Your sense of humor comes out with a certain amount of detachment. Take a step back and distance yourself in order to gain some perspective. Tonight: Head home and lock the door; make the weekend yours.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You could be exhausted by everything that is going on around you. Friends and meetings, both planned and spontaneous, could occupy most of your day. You might have a conversation with a friend who causes you to re-evaluate the friendship. Tonight: Go where the crowds are.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your feelings do count, even to someone who is a superior in some way. People close to you have started to recognize that your hunches are more reliable than those of others. Examine what is going on with a loved one. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: A must appearance.
