Born today, you aren't the kind to stay in the shadows for long. When you get your first lucky break -- and lucky it is very likely to be! -- you will be ready to take full advantage of it and follow where it leads with a kind of enthusiastic abandon that makes you the envy of all who have ever wished to be so lucky themselves. Indeed, you may prove an inspiration to many in your lifetime, as you demonstrate through your own behavior -- in both personal and professional affairs -- how to be a brave, principled, upstanding individual who brooks difficulty with the same grace as he welcomes opportunity and success. You know what's important, you know who matters and you're not one to be shaken from those beliefs.
You are something of a dreamer. While you are young, you will learn to close your eyes and envision the future as specifically as you possibly can; later, you will discover that the more specific you can be, the more likely it is that you will enjoy a reality that closely resembles what you have imagined!

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Something has been holding you back, and it's high time you get to the bottom of it. More than one thing is eating at you, in fact.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may feel that something is weighing on you in an unusual fashion, and the feeling is not a good one. You can find the cause!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's important that you keep your head in the game, or you may find that you are putting more than your money at risk.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're trying too hard to control the things around you when few of them can, in fact, be controlled the way you would wish. Loosen up!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to consider offering someone else a chance at the big time as only you can. Success is what you make it!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're not going to be able to do everything all at the same time, so you must be ready to prioritize clearly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your schedule may be more complicated than expected, because you've taken up someone else's cause -- or taken him or her under your wing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The pace is increasing at this time, but you are surely able to keep up -- particularly if you stay focused on your primary objective.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself tempted by something that others do not fully understand, but it's something you've actually considered for a while.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to double-time it in order to get everything done. You're not as excited about an offer of help as you had hoped.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't let yourself be tempted by that which is, for all intents and purposes, impossible or completely out of your reach.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're trying to prove yourself in some way, but is it the right way? Now is the time to get to the heart of a key personal matter.
