HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013: Try to lighten up this year. You often are extremely serious, and you could make more of certain situations than exists. Use your unique abilities to transform your issues by taking a totally different approach. If single, be careful of a very intriguing and mysterious person you meet. If attached, the two of you will enhance your bond by taking off on adventures together. Suddenly, you might act like newfound lovers. Scorpio knows how to trigger you. Learn the art of detachment. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Scorpio.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might seek some peace and quiet. Whether you throw yourself into a good book or go off on a hike by yourself makes little difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Defer to others – not only because it is easier, but also because the person in question might be feeling a bit down.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Stay even and mellow, and know that others could be worn out, too. Give the people in your immediate circle the treatment you would like in return.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Your creativity flourishes to a new level. Your understanding and sensitivity count to many people in your life, with the exception of a key loved one.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You might have had enough of staying close to home, so opt to go out and visit friends. You also could meet loved ones for a scrumptious meal at a preferred spot.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Share more of what is on your mind with a neighbor or close friend. This person has been in a similar situation and can identify with you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Curb a need to be possessive or have your way. Realize what is happening with a financial matter. You could have a last-minute problem.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You smile and understand where someone is coming from. You might attempt to come to an understanding with a roommate or loved one.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You do not need to explain so much. Instead of taking the lead, step back and observe more. Revise your finances, and get to the bottom of a problem.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Emphasize your friends. One of them could be somewhat depressed and might be distancing him- or herself. Make time for this person.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Others expect you to take the lead. Sometimes your seriousness could be overwhelming to those who haven’t known you for a while.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Go off to a movie to relax your mind. Realize that many people you know are far more sophisticated than you might realize. Open up to experiencing the world differently.
