HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012: This year you opt for more private, home time. A partner plays a more important role than in the past. Together you work as a team to make your domestic and personal life everything it can be. If single, you are in the mood for a live-in relationship. Though someone could be taken by you, don’t move too quickly into this type of arrangement. Taurus encourages spending! A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Curb a tendency to do others’ work, especially if it means convincing them to handle something your way. Your efforts to restrain yourself will pay off.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Sometimes less is more. You decide to pull back to help others air out their ideas. You might even have to revise an opinion or two as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Know that once you focus, you nearly can pull white rabbits out of black hats. Your ability to socialize and empathize quickly becomes a strong suit in a meeting.
