Born today, you possess an adventurous spirit, and you are compelled to explore as much of the world as possible throughout your lifetime. There may actually be a risk of your leading a rather rootless life, but if you always remember to return to that one special place you call home, you can avoid this while retaining the benefits of being well-traveled. You have a vivid personality, and you're sure to make waves wherever you go -- though it is entirely up to you whether this will be remembered as a good thing or a bad thing. Indeed, there will be at least two occasions in your life in which you may be tempted to cross over to the "dark side" in some way.
You can be something of a taskmaster, but this is likely the result of your being hard on yourself when you are young -- and of your belief that results stem from hard work and hard work alone. You're no slacker, by any means, and you insist that those around you contribute and work hard as well.
Also born on this date are: Justin Timberlake, singer and actor; Minnie Driver, actress; Nolan Ryan, baseball player; Richard Gephardt, U.S. congressman; Suzanne Pleshette, actress; James Franciscus, actor; Jean Simmons, actress; Carol Channing, actress, singer, entertainer; Norman Mailer, author; Mario Lanza, singer; Jackie Robinson, baseball player; Zane Grey, author.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Approach the day's problems in a way that you feel comfortable with -- without being tempted by another's secret plan.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have a great deal of ability, and today you'll find yourself in a position that allows you to put it on display in no uncertain terms.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Working on your own gives you a certain advantage, but you may choose to involve a partner in order to give yourself a psychological edge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be facing a few unfamiliar situations today, and the options presented to you will have you considering taking an unfamiliar path.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Are you willing to take the kind of risk that may be necessary to close the gap between you and a rival? This may be a game you choose not to win.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Safety is a prime issue throughout the day; you don't want to find yourself or a loved one in a position that compromises personal security.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have a great deal to do today in a limited amount of time -- in large part because of what someone in charge is expecting of you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A figure from the past seems to loom before you today, demanding of you something that you are not entirely willing to do or give.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not get what you want today, but you will have a better idea of what is really available to you as a result of your efforts.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A friend or family member will make demands on you today, but you will have every reason to set your own needs aside and cooperate.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is not the time to focus on what might have been, especially since what lies ahead shows so much potential; you'll feel inspired.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will be ready for a well-earned "time out" toward midday. Use the time to assess your current position and formulate a game plan.
