HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Feb. 7, 2011: This year, you will communicate your issues and ideas in a dynamic manner so that others hear you loud and clear. If single, you will need to sort through your many admirers with an eye to the type of bond you desire. If attached, the two of you discover a newfound appreciation for each other. Aries brings out the best in you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • You can express your needs in a manner that makes waves. Avoid someone who is determined to have his/her way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Withdraw and observe. Fatigue marks your decisions and actions. Change evolves because of your willingness to look within.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Zero in on what you want. Meetings help you orchestrate a goal and gain support. Others easily could go to extremes. Decide to stay on your path.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • A must appearance carries a lot of weight. Pressure builds because of a key group of associates and friends taking a stand. You might decide to go it alone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Keep stretching in order to grasp more of what others think and where they are coming from and discussions will become easier.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Relate to others directly. You’ll gain unusual clarity and support. Your creativity emerges when you don’t like what occurs. You might veer in a different direction.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You could be making situations far more difficult than need be. How you handle a partner could change, especially as you might feel strongly. Pressure builds from out of left field.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Your pace could be a little more hectic than you originally visualized. Personal aspects of your life intertwine with the professional side. Adjust your schedule accordingly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Your enthusiasm activates even those who are lazy! You not only get the job done and are able to communicate your needs, but you also help others. Be careful with a money matter.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You know what to do, and you will do it. Unfortunately, the powers that be might not agree, implying a power struggle of some sort. The only way to win is not to play.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Keep conversations active and flowing. Express your ideas; represent who you are. An opinion about a situation could be changing right now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Be careful with funds. You easily could make a mistake that costs you not only in funds, but also that doesn’t allow you to do something that you have long desired.
