HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012: You are unusually caring and nurturing to those in your day-to-day life. Often you are startled by people’s reactions. Your personal and home life anchors you, allowing you to flex with the many odd situations you might come into contact with. If single, you’ll meet someone in your daily travels. If attached, the two of you grow closer through taking on a mutually interesting hobby. Cancer can be a little sloppy. A baby born today has its sun in Aquarius and moon in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • A recent disagreement could be worked out, if you so choose. Let go of a power play, knowing full well what is possible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Reach out for others. You could be confused by everything that you hear. Step back and determine what suits you. Make it OK to adapt to a changeable person.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might feel as if you must follow through on a situation and make the best of it. Laughter surrounds a friendship. Be more direct and sure of yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Relate directly to a loved one who is difficult; however, don’t get pulled into a power play. You might want to try another approach.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • Whether you are bored or simply not inspired, you will tend to stay close to home. Quite a few people would like your company – you simply aren’t interested.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Opt to be with friends or out and about. Don’t be alone. You have a unique opportunity to meet someone very different or partake in an eye-opening event.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Take a stand and be willing to control a situation in a different way or style. Your sense of humor comes out when dealing with one who wants it their way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Detach, especially if you are in an either/or situation. You might not be as sure of yourself as you might like. Too much questioning could create a degree of insecurity.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Money and emotions are involved in a partnership decision. You could find that it is best to lie back a little, walk in the other person’s shoes then pull back and detach.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You could be more oppositional and defiant than you realize. Stop and take a hard look at a situation. Are you being controlling or reactive?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You plunge into a task or project, sure of yourself. By the end, you might be questioning the original decision.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Join a child or loved one, and make the most of the moment. Clearly your ideas and another person’s do not match.
