Born today, you are not always what you seem to be, and this is a source of great contentment -- for you never want to be pigeonholed, and you very much enjoy and appreciate the fact that you cannot be sized up swiftly by others. You don't have to do much to confuse those around you with your seemingly contradictory personality and unconventional, inconsistent ways; these things are organic to you and come very naturally. You are complicated without even trying! You are highly creative and emotional, yet you are also capable of complex thinking and can grapple with the most difficult of intellectual problems. You have a great deal of sex appeal even though you may not be classically beautiful. You are quite gregarious, but you love your privacy, too.
You may be labeled "slippery" by those who try to control you -- unsuccessfully, of course. You never take these kinds of criticisms to heart, for you understand that they tell you more about the critic than the critic will ever know about you! You enjoy having a secret.
Also born on this date are: Norman Rockwell, illustrator and painter; Nathan Lane, actor; Morgan Fairchild, actress; Blythe Danner, actress; Fran Tarkenton, football player; Joey Bishop, actor and comedian; James Michener, author; Gertrude Stein, writer; Bob Griese, football player; Michael Cimino, filmmaker; Warwick Davis, actor; Maura Tierney, actress.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not react to things the way others expect you to. Indeed, you're not following your usual patterns in most things.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not interested in coloring inside the lines; you're far more eager to take a freeform approach to the day's endeavors.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Once again, you're dealing with issues that are primarily of your own making; if you did not create them, you've certainly made them prominent.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may complain of being misunderstood, but are you really trying to be clear in all things? Examine other modes of communication.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Make sure to remember all that happens, in as much detail as possible. You'll be called upon to report, and you must be accurate!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A complete overview of the day may be impossible during morning hours, as several things are likely to develop unexpectedly later on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're ready and willing to work and play hard, and others must be ready to deal with you on a more personal, aggressive level.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your actions aren't likely to bring you much in the way of tangible rewards, but they are surely a labor of love.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can keep things from falling apart by insisting that others follow your lead and avoid doing whatever strikes their fancy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may need a boost of confidence before you head out on a journey that will put you in contact with several major threats.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can combine business with pleasure, especially if you are called upon to travel any distance to a place you've not been before.
