Born today, you are, by almost all accounts, the luckiest individual born under your sign, the kind who knows just how to take advantage of situations as they develop, who knows how to be in the right place at the right time, and who knows how to turn a negative into a positive and parlay that success into further progress. You are not always aware of the forces that drive you, whether internal or external, but you are more than willing to follow whatever path you are on, provided you can see the destination you desire. You think outside of the box, embrace unusual and unorthodox methods, and are always willing to take advantage of a good idea, no matter where it may come from -- and you are more than willing to give credit where credit is due. You know how to bring your personality to bear when taking advantage of a situation.
While you can be quite passionate, you often keep those emotions to yourself -- even among family members who are so eager to know what is going on with you. You don't like being vulnerable, so you don't talk about your feelings very often, even among friends and family.
Also born on this date are: Rosa Parks, civil rights activist; Alice Cooper, singer; George Romero, director; Oscar De La Hoya, boxer; Natalie Imbruglia, singer; Charles Lindbergh, pioneer aviator; Lawrence Taylor, football player; Gabrielle Anwar, actress; Clint Black, singer; David Brenner, comedian; Dan Quayle, U.S. senator and vice president; Ida Lupino, actress; Stanley Karnow, journalist and historian.
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 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Home affairs take precedence over anything else today -- even an apparent "crisis" at work, which is not as urgent as it seems.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to spend less time with the usual crowd and more time with those who do not typically get enough of your attention.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be required to get on the road much earlier than usual today. Be sure that you have given yourself enough of a cushion.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can do much to improve a decaying situation between friends today, even if you are not one of the contributing parties. Be ready to step in.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can see things in a way that others cannot today, and that will give you the advantage -- and anyone else who chooses to follow you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can accomplish more in one sitting today than you have in the recent days or weeks. Something has simply clicked, that is certain!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can assert yourself in a new manner today, and the result -- professionally, anyway -- should please you. A family member may object, however.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't want to call it quits today until you know for sure that there is nothing more you can do to improve a certain situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A friend is eager to reconnect, and today is a good day to do just that. You must make yourself available, however!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself closer to a certain someone than you had ever planned to be -- consciously, at any rate. This offers an unusual choice.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll be able to explore more options than usual today, though you may find the number of choices you have somewhat overwhelming.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone may not be taking you seriously enough today, and it will be up to you to prove that you are in earnest.
