Born today, you are a passionate individual, able at all times to control your passions and steer them toward fruitful use and the accomplishment of goals that will prove mightily important in your life and the lives of those in your immediate circle -- and beyond. You believe wholeheartedly in the notion that life is only worth living if it is lived fully, that feeling deeply about things is a necessity, and that working tirelessly toward the expression of your values is perhaps the noblest of human endeavors. You never make the mistake of thinking that your way is the only way, however; you can accept dissenting views on all levels, as long as those views are the product of true belief and deep, genuine passion.
You may not always be the luckiest individual, but your ability to overcome obstacles will make up for any misfortune you may experience in your life, whether personal or professional. It is likely, in fact, that personal hardships will be more deeply felt than professional complications.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are seeking answers that are actually quite close at hand, yet there may be something cloudy hanging between you and them.
TAURUS (April 19-May 20) -- You may be responsible for a conflict that will not be easy for others to understand. Putting an end to it is up to you as well.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're going to have to look at things from a different point of view. A friend is in the right place to provide one for you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take care that, in your attempts to clean up a mess, you don't unintentionally make another one that is much harder to deal with.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can avoid almost anything negative, provided you don't let a long-standing resentment cloud your judgment. It's time to let it go!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your ideas will prove quite attractive to those who are just learning to be in charge. You may find yourself accepting an unusual offer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be compared to one who has done much the same in similar situations, yet you know that there is much that separates you, as well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll encounter some unexpected opposition, but once you explain yourself clearly, you may find that it quickly evaporates.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your own examination of what has happened in recent days will provide you with more than one answer -- and a few unexpected choices.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are tempted to break with tradition and do something that others may find unacceptable -- at first. Later, you can win approval.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your attempts to coordinate several family activities should pay off nicely, and you'll even have some alone time, too!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have no choice but to lay down the law in a way that others understand clearly. There's no time to waste.
