Born today, you are a generally easygoing individual with a will to make others around you feel good about themselves and, as much as possible, about the world at large. You have been endowed with a tremendously positive outlook that is rarely shaken -- though it must be said that when it is, you can sink into a very serious depression from which it may take you quite a while to recover. In the main, however, you know how to see things for what they are without letting them get you down -- and usually you are able to find the silver lining in any cloud.
You are at your best when you are applying your considerable talents to projects that you consider truly worthwhile and beneficial. You cannot abide "busy work," but you have an admirable work ethic when the stakes are high. It is likely you will build quite a professional reputation for yourself.
Also born on this date are: Jeremy Sumpter, actor; Michael Sheen, actor; Jennifer Jason Leigh, actress; Christopher Guest, actor, comic, musician; Roger Staubach, football player; H.R. Giger, surrealist artist; Hank Aaron, baseball player; Red Buttons, actor.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The schedule you have to keep may not be conducive to a relaxed way of working; you'll have to work more quickly than you had planned.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will recognize a few things as being different from what you expected -- but that, in turn, will allow you to enjoy greater freedom.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- As with so many others today, freedom itself is a big concern, and anything you can do to guarantee yours will be a big plus.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have little good to say about what you are working on at this time, but someone else recognizes that it may be among your best efforts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You cannot afford to be distracted by something that doesn't concern you today; keep yourself focused, and avoid anything draining.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have a journey ahead of you, but you may not be entirely sure where you will be at the end of it. Yes, the journey is its own destination!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will be captivated by something that someone does apparently in private -- but you will have caught a glimpse that has you making plans.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You should be able to finally sit down and get back to work after a short, unintended hiatus. Now that you're back at it, rewards follow.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be tempted to see things in a negative light, but someone close to you will remind you of your naturally positive outlook.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can do or say just the right thing today to have a friend feeling much better about what he or she has recently said or done.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to work a little harder than usual today to get the same results -- and that's very much the product of a recent slowdown.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have a great deal of enthusiasm today, but you want to apply it to an endeavor that you can really wrap your head around.
