For Thursday, Feb. 1
Those with birthdays today: You have energy and ideas, though inevitably you'll hit an obstacle or two this year. The smart approach will be to let others have their way, as experience is the best teacher. The only control you can exercise is over yourself. With the right attitude, the world could be your oyster. Try not to scatter, keeping in mind your goals and long-term desires. If you are single, you might give up that status, as many will want to be your forever sweetie. If you are attached, your relationship will benefit from openness and a willingness to try or experience life from your sweetie's side. LEO can be demanding.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
¢¢¢¢ No matter which way you turn, you could feel a bit awkward. Though ingenuity certainly plays a role in your life, it might not take some of the difficult moments away. Tonight: Let off steam.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
¢¢ Stay close to home, if possible. Many people and happenings seem to tilt you off-center. Remember, you don't have to be available to all the people all of the time! Tonight: Homeward bound.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
¢¢¢¢ What you say might be right-on, but one would be hard-pressed to tell it by observing others' responses. Ultimately, what you verbalize and do needs to reflect you and not others. Tonight: Out and about.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
¢¢¢¢ Dig into your imagination and deal with issues directly and with finesse. How you handle a money matter might be clear to you, but not to others. Tonight: Don't splurge!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
¢¢¢¢ You are all smiles but do have difficulty handling someone in a more direct and complete manner. You might want to try another approach or do something different. Tonight: Just smile.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
¢¢ Know when to cut your losses and say "enough." You could be tired and withdrawn because of what is going on. You might need some personal time. Don't put yourself last all the time. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
¢¢¢¢ You know what you want. Though you might want to zoom in and make it yours, this behavior could be a problem. Others are not as compliant as you might like. Tonight: Happy as a cat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
¢¢¢ Though others want you to be in the limelight and take charge, they might not make it easy. Ignore underground currents. Don't be surprised by someone's direct challenge. Tonight: Expect to be in demand.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
¢¢¢ Taking an overview could be challenging. Others might be reactive and in a difficult mood. You could be out of sorts as well. Events and people only become more lively. Tonight: Talk up a storm.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
¢¢¢ Handle finances as directly as possible. You might want to gain a new perspective or do something a lot differently. Give yourself permission to flow and move with opportunities. Tonight: Let someone else make the call.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
¢¢¢ You might be more challenging than you realize when dealing with the many people in your life. Know when to step back and make what you would like happen. Tonight: Just flow.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
¢¢ When your energy is off, you might be well advised to pull back and change directions. Your ability to realize more of what you want might be off. Just hang out or take a personal day. Tonight: What would be restful?
