Born today, you will always maintain a youthful presence and persona, remaining energetic, enthusiastic, and full of vim and vigor throughout your lifetime. It is likely -- though certainly not assured -- that you will enjoy very good health through the years, without any sort of serious illness or strokes of bad luck affecting you physically. You are a studious individual; surprising to others, you enjoy a quiet night at home perusing your library, enjoying a movie or simply engaging in low-key conversation with a friend or two. You don't always have to be making things happen, even though you can generally keep up with almost anyone in that regard.
When you say "no" you mean "no," but "yes" isn't always as concrete and certain for you. Indeed, you may often be dissuaded from something you have set your heart on, as you are always willing to listen to reason where safety and sense are the issue.
Also born on this date are: Chris Rock, comedian and actor; Ashton Kutcher, actor; Steve Nash, basketball player; Garth Brooks, singer and songwriter; Charles Dickens, novelist; Laura Ingalls Wilder, author; James Spader, actor; Eddie Izzard, comedian and actor; Buster Crabbe, Olympic swimmer and actor; Sinclair Lewis, author; Miguel Ferrer, actor; Sir Thomas More, English poet, philosopher, statesman.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're getting the right kind of help from someone who has "been there, done that" -- but he or she doesn't know your personal style.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your hands-off way of dealing with a certain problem isn't likely to help solve it. You're going to have to get more involved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may need something different from a loved one, and the only way you'll get it is to ask for it. You can find the words.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have put off too many tasks to accomplish them all right now, so you'll have to prioritize carefully and make a detailed plan.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not going to be able to blame anyone else for the position you are in at day's end if you continue along your current course.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't let yourself become envious of another's position. Focus instead on what you can realistically do to better your own.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- There are rumblings and undercurrents that you cannot ignore making a palpable impact on one or two key situations.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't have to do things in a completely new way in order to have a completely new impact on those around you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Only by being 100 percent yourself will you come to appreciate the meaning of a certain unsettling situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have much to share with those around you, but you may not know just how to bring up certain issues directly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your options are many, but you may turn your back on one or two simply because they are so similar to what you've already done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Pay attention not only to the information that comes to you, but also to the source from which it comes. That will make a difference.
