Born today, you know how to speak truth to power, and you are never afraid to tell it like it is -- even when someone is lording it over you and threatening to take life, liberty or happiness from you if you continue to speak. Freedom, to you, is one of life's essentials. You have a light touch and the ability to underplay a scene even when the prevailing circumstances seem to call for force and gravitas. You are a highly social creature, and you enjoy the interaction of all kinds of work -- though you prefer anything that allows you to observe, analyze and talk about what you see. Thinking, indeed, is perhaps your most enjoyable single endeavor -- and you can think about virtually any subject for hours or days at a time.
You're likely to get your big break rather early in life, and while this can bring you a great deal of success and opportunity, it can also limit your future by blinding you to opportunities that a more mature version of yourself might recognize and exploit later in life. You like to be able to do a thing whenever you think of it.
Also born on this date are: Hank Aaron, baseball player; Jeremy Sumpter, actor; Bobby Brown, singer; Sara Evans, singer; Michael Sheen, actor; Roger Staubach, football player; Jennifer Jason Leigh, actress; Laura Linney, actress; Barbara Hershey, actress; Christopher Guest, actor and filmmaker; Red Buttons, actor and comedian; Adlai E. Stevenson Jr., politician; Stephen J. Cannell, television producer; Michael Mann, director; H.R. Giger, artist; John Carradine, actor; Chris Parnell, actor.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- While waiting for someone to get in touch with you, you can actually get quite a lot of work done. Later, you won't want to do any at all!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What seems quite apparent to those around you is hardly recognizable to you -- if you can spot it at all. Keep your eyes and ears open.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're seeking something that seems to have a mind of its own as it continues to elude you, despite your best attempts to locate it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The time has come, perhaps, for you to share a certain part of your history with someone who is eager to get to know you better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are free to satisfy a certain craving as often as you wish -- though soon you may actually have too much of a good thing!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you observe from afar may turn out to be more valuable to you than anything you might have experienced up close.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A loved one may have to intervene before you get yourself into any serious danger. He or she has been there before, and knows.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Even the shortest of messages can carry with it the greatest import, as you're soon to learn. Your reply must be carefully crafted.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have been assigned a task that is just a little bit over your head -- or above your pay grade. Now what do you do about that?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more you get done during the first part of the day, the more time you'll have later on to devote to a loved one's special project.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your promises may fall on deaf ears for a while -- until you prove that you can, indeed, pull off what you say you can.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You cannot afford to let even a loved one distract you during the busiest portion of the day. Too much is on the line!
