HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011: This year, you will experience a lot more possibilities because of a willingness to bounce ideas off others. Aquarius is often a sign that has to be right, but the smart Aquarian opens up to many different thought systems and ideas. If single, opportunities to date abound. If attached, try to defer to your sweetie more often. Recognize how dominant you can be. Aquarius is far from a fair-weather friend.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Zero in on your priorities. Everyone seems gung-ho, yet later another attitude could emerge. You feel odd dealing with a closed-off person who refuses to open up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Yes, you could be overly serious and perhaps tiresome to some people. Don’t worry – everyone likes how you get the job done.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • A person you generally think of as playful could be a bit dour. You might try to cheer them up and wind up making this person even more closed down.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You are your own worst critic. A partner or close associate encourages you to relax. Being uptight can only add to a difficulty. Don’t push yourself too hard.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • A serious talk does a lot to repair a relationship. You might wonder exactly what is going on behind another’s cool demeanor.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • An easy exchange with an associate might not be possible. Give this person time to relax and flow. Throw yourself into your work.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Your normal playfulness seems to be gone. A sad quality or edge could mar an excellent relationship. Slow down and think about what has occurred.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Allow others to know of your disdain for an evolving situation. Perhaps you are taking someone too seriously. In a couple of days, your perspective will change.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A meeting could set the tone for the day. You could be exhausted and tired by everything that wings by today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Be aware of the costs of proceeding in a chosen direction. Conversations need to involve different ideas, which might cause less total damage.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Though someone at a distance could be difficult, you can bypass his or her negativity. Try as you may, you cannot change this person’s mood.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Take your time making decisions. You could find a source to be somewhat closed down. Get feedback and ideas from others.
