Happy birthday for Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2009: Expect the best this year, and you just might get it. You are lively, caring and animated. Others find you to be nearly an endless source of creativity. Funnel this strength into your work and home life rather than scatter it around. Imagine its power if it were directed. If you are single, your animal magnetism speaks. Others hear it and come toward you all year long. Pick and choose your companions with care. You could be meeting someone significant to your life’s history. If you are attached, you discover the power of being a couple. Be especially considerate of your sweetie. Gemini loves to flirt.

Aries (March 21-April 19) ••••• You are a spirit to deal with: With as much energy as you exude, others have to run to keep up with you. An Aries focused on his or her objectives is hard to stop. You demonstrate the power of will.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) ••• Knowing when too much is on your plate is smart. How you discharge an overwhelming load becomes a question of style. Some of you might take on your boss or the system. Are you sure this is the right way?

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ••••• Check out Aries and know that you have even more energy. Investigate potential connections. Differences can help evolve a tighter plan.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) •• Take time before launching into action. You might question which way to go. Follow your instincts, and you will be OK. A partner bucks your ideas. Use the criticism. The power of using different opinions comes out.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• Keep your goals in your mind’s eye, even though you certainly have distraction served up on a platter. You could be surprised by what goes down in the next few days. Listen to others. (Yes, it is possible they are withholding something.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• Take a stand and be willing to back it up. Fiery interactions earmark your daily life. You could choose to allow a situation to become contentious. You will learn more and see a hole in a project. It never hurts to rethink a project before starting.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• No one could ever say you are short on imagination, but especially right now. If you want to try a different approach or do something very differently, now is the time. Intellect merges well with fantasy, producing spectacular results.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• If you want to do something differently, by all means, do so. Sometimes you get caught in a particular situation and need help focusing on other matters. No wonder someone loses his or her temper out of the blue. Can you blame this person?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• Others come to you with great ideas and new insight. Your perspective could change radically. Listen to advice that comes in out of left field. You might be surprised by another’s anger or sarcasm.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••• Curb a tendency to risk and get a bit too wild. Listen to feedback from someone you care about. He or she could trigger some anger or hurt. Remember that everyone gets sore once in a while. Feelings run below the surface.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Answers are found left and right. Try to be more effective and direct in your dealings. Listen to someone close. Allow your imagination into the mix, and great ideas, as well as practical solutions, will knock on your door.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• If you have better ideas, why not express them? Keeping some matters close to the chest doesn’t help and surely isn’t practical. Check out what’s going on behind the scenes. Laugh and relax with others.
