Born today, you are almost certain to make your mark at a remarkably young age. However, unlike so many who fail to build on that early success and instead fade irretrievably, you are likely to better yourself again and again, and continue to shine throughout your lifetime, enjoying what should prove to be a long and fruitful career. You have a wide variety of interests, and talents to match, but you're nobody's fool: You know the value of choosing one key ability to develop fully so that you do not squander it away and fail to take advantage of the opportunities that are made available to you.
The way you do things, both professionally and personally, may not be to everyone's taste, but you don't give a great deal of credence to what other people think of you. You know that you will always try to be fair in all your dealings, and you always strive to avoid being too harsh in your opinions of others.
Also born on this date are: Henry "Hank" Aaron, baseball player; Jeremy Sumpter, actor; Bobby Brown, singer; Sara Evans, singer; Michael Sheen, actor; Roger Staubach, football player; Jennifer Jason Leigh, actress; Jennifer Granholm, politician; Laura Linney, actress; Barbara Hershey, actress; Christopher Guest, actor, writer, filmmaker; Red Buttons, actor and comedian; Adlai E.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6
SCOPRIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've been keeping certain things hidden long enough. Loved ones and friends have a right to know what's going on with you!
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An offer you receive from a friend or neighbor may simply be too generous -- and timely -- to refuse. Don't worry, you can return the favor.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Continuity allows you to see things from all different perspectives, though your first glimpse may not be what you expected.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A formidable adversary is poised to engage you in a way that seems threatening, but, in fact, it is nothing you can't deal with handily.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have to provide yourself with more support than you have had in the recent past. You may have to put a current project on hold.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't know what you are trying to accomplish, but you do know that with every step, you are getting things done one way or another.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Experimentation can yield important information. You can pick up the pace after you realize you've armed yourself quite well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you're currently planning may not be good for you or for those around you, and today is the day to consider making a change.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If you don't tell anyone what you're up to, then you're not likely to receive the support you really need as you face greater challenges.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can work at a faster pace than usual, and it's unlikely that the results will suffer in any way. In fact, creativity is quite high.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can avoid any tumult that occurs in or around your home today by simply withdrawing, but that isn't likely to solve the problem.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may receive a warning from someone who has already encountered certain dangers that now lie before you as well. Listen and prepare!
