Born today, you are something of a dynamo, always on the move, always chasing after a new dream, always reaching for the brass ring and always inspiring others to do their best -- even those in direct competition with you. You are quick to figure things out, but you never believe that you know it all. In fact, you seem to do best when there are variables at play that you simply don't understand and cannot control, elements that seem to elude your grasp intellectually and instinctively. You are never afraid to get up close and personal when you find yourself in conflict with another. Indeed, you often gain the advantage by moving more swiftly and aggressively than a competitor and encroaching on his or her space.
Ironically, you insist that others respect your personal space, even though you are not always respectful of theirs. When you feel threatened, you can react in a highly volatile manner, and you may find that this can only make a bad situation worse. On the positive side, you are fiercely loyal, and you will stick with a friend forever, through thick and thin.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have less time to sell your ideas than you expected, and every moment counts. You still have to lay some groundwork.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are devising a strategy that you hope will be foolproof and invulnerable to any sort of counterplan, but is that really possible?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A friend may anger you somewhat with attempts to figure you out in a stressful situation. Stop and listen; he or she knows you well!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A situation will begin to come together in such a way that you are left holding the reins when, in fact, you are eager to relinquish control.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others are likely to be drawn into your orbit. Is this your own doing or the result of something in the air that cannot be avoided?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are looking for answers, but you may uncover nothing but questions as you delve into the information you think you need.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A journey with a friend may open up a whole new range of possibilities for both of you -- together and individually.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will receive a suggestion from a member of the opposite sex. As a result, you may feel you've been put on the spot. Don't be cajoled!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't let a current situation get the better of you. You can remain in control by attending to matters one at a time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A routine endeavor takes on unusual significance as you strive for something that others have never been able to achieve.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can't seem to get permission to do something unusual. It's not that your plan is objectionable; it's doubt as to your chance of success.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be granted authority over others, but take care that you don't go overboard and wield that authority carelessly.
