 22 MIDWEEK JANUARY 12, 2022
       RELEASE DATE—Sunday, January 9, 2022 RELEASE DATE—Sunday, January 9, 2022
Are miscommunications on the rise? Are folks confused or just not listening? Prepare to reaffirm your point of view more often now. Soon your message will get through.
It may be tempting to start to plan your finances for the new year at this point in time, but give your money a rest period where it just sits and waits. Capricorns may be prone to listening to false advice or misinterpreting the suggestions they are given. My advice is to wait and follow the marketplace. You will be in top form by the end of this month.
No matter how you try, you may find that your first impressions are not exactly what you expect. Aquarians may schmooze with many new people but may lose track of the more important ones as the weeks go on. Happily, even if you forget to reconnect, others may reach out to you. Keep your eyes and ears open for the possibilities.
Even if your innate intuition is a little off-kilter now, Pisces, you can still dis- cern some upcoming trends in your life. But don’t bother to take action until events settle down a bit and you can more clearly see the landscape ahead of you. Mellowness and relaxation may be interrupted but your ability to transcend the road bumps will be in top form.
Any social plan may misdirect over the next couple of weeks. Invitations may go to spam, phone calls might be missed or some other form of miscommunication can occur. The best advice I can give you, Aries, is to maintain flexibility and a good sense of humor as the fates deliver some surprises and maybe even an unexpected jolly time.
No matter where you think your career is going, it may hit a bit of a detour now, Taurus. That means that any hard work you are undertaking will need to be closely monitored to be sure it doesn’t go off track or credit given to someone else. Go with the flow and hold your best moves until the end of the month. Until then, chill.
Travel plans may go awry but that doesn’t mean that you have to sit around and get bored. Geminis are clever and creative and can find many ways
to enliven and expand their lives without a lot of small itinerary details to track. The best remedy for travel mix-ups is to find calm and easy ways to enjoy life. I know you have a bunch of great ideas.
Your best romantic moves may miss the mark this week, Cancer. But that doesn’t mean that you should stop trying to connect and spread your
love. Listen to the clues. Follow the moves and see where your best efforts produce the best results. Before you know it you will be setting sail on the Love Boat, headed for parts unknown.
You may feel that you have needs that are not quite being met by partners. But find careful and clear ways of expressing yourself now, Leo. Others may not be listening closely or may be focused on something else. Miscommu- nication can occur. Patience and care will get you exactly who and what you want — especially patience.
Any detailed project may become a little unfocused or off track. Be super careful about the directions you follow and the instructions you receive, Virgo. You are a hard worker and take pride in your good efforts. Don’t worry about any long-term impacts for delays or missteps. You regain your footing soon. In the meantime, take a rest.
Even fun will have its less-than-fun moments now, Libra. But that doesn’t mean that you should forgo anything creative, festive or jolly. What it means is that you need to focus on the details so everything goes just right and everyone is in on the fun. And, sometimes, a little uncertainty or miscom- munication can add to the excitement?
Family gatherings come with their fair share of confusion and discussion. That can ramp up to a greater level now, Scorpio. But you are up for anything the fates deliver and can make opposing sides see their commonality. Whether you want it or not, you become the diplomat of the hour. SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER23-DECEMBER22) Your honesty and candor shine through, Sagittarius. But check what you
are about to say before you say it. Not only could you accidentally misdirect people, but you could also reveal something that might need to be kept secret a little longer. Mulling things over, contemplating the results and not sharing them with others will benefit you (and others) now.
