HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Feb. 3, 2012: This year, deal with your strong feelings. You won’t take on what others project on you. This clarity will make your life work better. Use caution with your funds. Your creativity soars, whatever your focus might be. If single, you are a magnet to those who are lighthearted and playful. If attached, sometimes the two of you will behave in a manner that is reminiscent of new lovers. Cancer pushes you hard to do what he or she wants. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Gemini. At 10:04 p.m., the moon changes signs to Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Think before you speak, as you could put your foot in your mouth with ease. You might mean well, but your subconscious becomes more activated and will remain so.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Juggle your finances with care. Test ideas on others, as you could be subject to odd thinking right now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Someone seems to test your temper. You wonder when to say “enough.” There is no time like the present to initiate a change.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Continue being low-key, especially as your mind weighs the pros and cons of a personal situation. Ask for feedback only from people you respect; otherwise, don’t dare.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You might need to rethink your plans. A meeting results in common goals and support. You might be taken aback by things ending as you had wished.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • It could be close to impossible to pursue any other course than the immediate one. You take the lead, whether you are in charge or not.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might want to evaluate what has been a problem once more. You’ll easily find a solution and realize how irrelevant the issue might have been.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Visualize a deeper partnership that allows greater give-and-take. You could be set back by a conversation from a while ago.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You find that others insist on being on center stage. Let them, as you won’t be able to change their minds. If you want to defer to someone else, do.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You might believe you have put in enough effort – you have. Be more forthright and direct. You think one thing, only to discover you are wrong.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Your mindset goes with the day and the pending weekend. Tame your expansive imagination and allow yourself to penetrate a situation in your daily life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Tension builds, encouraging an even more positive outlook on the weekend. You might need a walk or a break to center yourself in the afternoon.
