Born today, you are not one of those shy or standoffish individuals who finds it difficult to share your talents with the world at large. On the contrary, from an early age you will be something of a showoff, eager to demonstrate just what you are capable of -- and how important and beneficial those talents can be. You may rely on those who recognize your potential and can do you favors when you are starting out, but later on, when you hit your stride, you will be able to do almost everything you wish to do without assistance in the professional arena.
When it comes to your personal affairs, you're not nearly as adept and you will always benefit from having a partner, a teammate, a coach or merely a fan who can encourage you and boost your spirits. You must always beware of your natural tendency to suffer in your personal life when you are riding a wave of professional success.
You don't have to speak loudly to be heard; you know how to attract attention by doing or saying very little, and once you have the ear of one or two people, you're sure to win a large audience eventually -- it's only a matter of time. You can be quite persuasive, but you don't always have the most popular views or opinions about things.
Also born on this date are: Shakira, singer; Farrah Fawcett, actress; Tom Smothers, comedian; Christie Brinkley, model; James Joyce, author; Graham Nash, singer and songwriter; Brent Spiner, actor; Stan Getz, musician; Elaine Stritch, actress; Ayn Rand, author; Liz Smith, gossip columnist; James Dickey, poet and novelist.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you say and do may affect others quite differently from how you expect. You can make minor but important changes midway today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to do a little more research before you know enough to engage in a certain activity by yourself. Until then, trust your teammates!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be leaning on a friend or family member more than usual today, as you address a situation that no one expected to arise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are ready to take on more than you were originally assigned, but you are warned against anything that is completely unfamiliar to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Opposites attract, and today someone very different from you is eager to get much closer than you may have originally wanted. What about now?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You realize that a mutual attraction has developed between you and someone who might have been "off limits" at another time or place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to see if the rules really do apply to you, but no matter what the answer is, you're best to steer clear of a certain new activity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can contribute to something that develops very quickly and begins to yield handsome rewards in a very short time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to explore the unknown today in order to get the answers you seek. Routine inquiries aren't likely to yield much.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Do you have the feeling that you're being watched? Even if it turns out to be true, it's not likely for the reasons you think.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can get much more out of a certain physical activity than usual today if you simply make an effort and see it through. Don't give up!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager to see the future, but your view is blocked by a certain obstacle that you've been dealing with for some time.
