Born today, you don't take kindly to being told what to do, where to go, what to wear, how to behave or who to be! Rather, you insist on deciding these basic questions entirely on your own and following a course of action of your own making, regardless of the hazards you may encounter as a result. Indeed, you will sometimes completely disregard all that has gone before you, choosing instead to discover things on your own as if they had never been discovered before! This can serve you well at times, but at other times you would certainly benefit from heeding the warnings of your predecessors and relying on pertinent bits of information they have collected in their travels. You cannot be wholly ignorant of the past if you wish to forge a successful future for yourself!
You can be rather intense, choosing to give your emotions free range of expression. This will certainly win you a great deal of attention, and there are some who will find your unfettered, uncontrolled manner compelling and highly attractive -- while at the same time recognizing that it can be quite dangerous.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be trying to repeat yourself, when doing something new and original is really the way to go.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are approaching a crossroads of sorts. It's important to understand where you've come from -- and what you've brought with you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to get in the fray, but you must take a little more time to assess the situation and plan your entry with care.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A good friend reaches out from afar, while at home you are torn between two options that promise something you've never had before.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may score a major "first" -- quite by accident! You are likely to move through the day with unusual flexibility and peripheral awareness.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Something you've enjoyed in the past may well be yours to enjoy again before the day is out -- but remember that it's only a special treat!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be confused by the mixed messages you're getting from a friend or loved one. In truth, it's your perception that is misleading.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Something is likely to last much longer than expected, and while this is a good thing, it carries with it a certain risk.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- There's no reason not to treat yourself to something special -- particularly after you've come through for someone else.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to sit back and watch as someone else makes dramatic headway. Your turn will come, but you mustn't force it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Taking care of yourself is most important, even though your tendency is to take care of others first. Don't ignore that inner voice!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not have as much time as expected to complete a certain task. Someone else comes along and offers a quick solution.
