HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Feb. 1, 2013: This year you have your share of admirers. You are capable of having a fun time with nearly anyone, but you really appreciate intellectual conversations and challenges. If you are single, you are likely to attract a more cultured type of personality. If attached, the two of you will benefit from a special vacation together. Getting away will reinvigorate your bond. Try to schedule some weekends away to relax, as well. Libra has a tendency to overindulge. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Libra
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Others make efforts to head in the direction you want; however, something that’s been said or done could be getting under your skin.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Listen to everything that is going on behind the scenes. You might opt to ignore the obvious – for now, at least. A friend or loved one pushes you hard.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • A compliment or kind message makes you smile. Understanding will evolve if you stay open and avoid making a judgment.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Observe, but do not commit to anything. Your major focus needs to be your own well-being. Money could play into discussions. Reach out to someone at a distance.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • How you verbalize what you need will make a difference as to how the message is received. Others find you engaging and are disposed to go along with your ideas.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You could be very tired and withdrawn. You know what is necessary to do. Complete what you must now, and leave what you can do later for “another day.”
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Don’t hesitate to beam in more of what you want. Realize what is happening with a child or loved one. This person adores you, so make time to get together with him or her.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • If you feel as if you would like to avoid some people, do so. If they could get even a sense of your mood, they would want to avoid you as well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Meetings punctuate the day. If you can, schedule the most fun gathering for the end of the afternoon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Stay on top of your obligations. If you do, you could be more responsive to those around you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Reach out to someone you care about. You have not been your responsive self to this person as of late. Discuss your anger, but be sensitive, too.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Deal with others directly. Though one person might be outrageous in his or her interactions, know that you have the wherewithal to handle this issue.
