Born today, you will never sit back and let the world turn without you. You are determined to take part, to stake your claim to that which you feel is yours by rights, to have an impact and to enjoy the success you know you deserve. You do understand, of course, that such success is not something that will come to you as a matter of course, and that the good things in life will not be handed to you on a silver platter! You will have to work for what you want -- and work for it you will -- but you're not about to stand for letting others put obstacles in your way for any reason. You know how to put your foot down, how to say "enough is enough" and how to influence those around you for the better.
When it comes to your personal life, you are something of a mystery to many; you don't feel that it is necessary for you to share certain parts of yourself with anyone but your closest friends and loved ones. Even those in your inner circle must come to terms with the fact that there are things about you that they will never know.
Also born on this date are: Rosa Parks, civil rights activist; Alice Cooper, singer; Rob Corddry, actor and comedian; Oscar De La Hoya, boxer; Natalie Imbruglia, singer; Charles Lindbergh, aviator; Lawrence Taylor, football player; Gabrielle Anwar, actress; Clint Black, singer; David Brenner, comedian; Dan Quayle, U.S. senator and vice president; Ida Lupino, actress; Arthur A. Ross, screenwriter.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be running out of time, so today is the day to tell that certain someone what you expect -- and what you're willing to give in return.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is the time for you to give another everything that you think he or she needs. Trust your instincts, and know you're on the right track.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may think that what someone has to offer is entirely inappropriate, but in fact, that person has his or her finger on the pulse of the group.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Give yourself all the time you need to come up with a workable solution to a tricky problem. It's better to be right than quick.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can get much done, and it doesn't even have to relate to your primary objective. What counts is productivity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- That which seems a certain way will likely prove to be entirely different, but you can work with it no matter how it comes out in the end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll enjoy sharing what you have with those who you know will appreciate both your efforts and the original idea.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself thinking about a better time, but in fact, you're on the verge of something that could be just as good.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be further away from a cherished goal than you have been in the past, but you mustn't lose heart; it is still in sight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone with whom you have shared a great deal may express his or her disappointment, but you can reverse this, surely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- If there's something you really want, you'd better go after it, because you're not the only one. Yes, a race has now begun!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can enjoy some social time with those who are usually "under" you in some way, either professionally or personally.
