HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2012: You are full of get-up-and-go this year. Those in creative fields manifest much more dynamic energy and ingenuity. For the most part, your work flows. If single, romance might be on your mind more than ever before. If attached, the two of you start acting like young lovers. People delight in being around you, as you remind them that romance can stay alive with a commitment. Gemini is always fun to be around. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Taurus if born before 11:15 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Listen to the feedback you get; you might not have seen what others see. Accept different opinions graciously, even if they are not given graciously.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Stay on top of a situation and be clear about what is going on. You might want to have a discussion involving finances, with an eye to change.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your smile might not work magic in the morning, but by the evening it will. Examine the possibilities with an open mind.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Know that sometimes it is better to back up rather than get in the middle of a major conflict. Your interests will be better served.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Look toward making a difference where it counts. Your happy and caring side emerges when dealing with others, especially in a group. You note a conviviality that you rarely see.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Realize what you are expecting from someone you look up to. Perhaps you don’t see this person realistically. Could that be possible?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You’ll get results by pulling back and dealing with a problematic situation through detachment. Plunge right in. You could have a problem.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You might be surprised by what is happening with a loved one. You work to clear out an issue. Accept the unexpected at work.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others have a way of challenging you. Be aware of what is going on with a child or loved one. There might be a side of you that wants no problems.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You have been working way too hard for your taste. Avoid those who are sarcastic and demanding, if possible. You could have quite a shake-up or realization.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You simply cannot help yourself – you feel good and are light and lively. Use care with your finances, as you might not be seeing the situation clearly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Laughter in your mind surrounds a decision that could make you feel a little silly, mainly because you have worried about it for quite a while.
