Born today, you are a natural leader, but you are not always the one to recognize when a leader is really called for in a given situation, so you may not step up and take your place of your own accord when the time is right. You recognize valuable qualities in other people, and you are quick to recruit them in turn; you always want to have good people working with you, by your side, because you recognize that you cannot do everything on your own.
You are serious-minded, and you want to do serious things in your lifetime. However, you have also been endowed with a rather wicked sense of humor, and it comes into play at the most unusual of times -- but almost always when you most need it. You believe that humor is more than disarming.
Also born on this date are: Norman Rockwell, illustrator and painter; Nathan Lane, actor; Morgan Fairchild, actress; Blythe Danner, actress; Fran Tarkenton, football player; Gertrude Stein, writer and poet.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're figuring out a personal mystery, and by day's end you'll know much more about yourself than you did. This gives you a new outlook.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're eager to reveal something that has been hidden for some time, but you must understand that it may be something of a Pandora's box.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A new take on an old issue brings you into the spotlight today -- at least for a time. You must be prepared to take some flak for what you do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Despite all you have in common with a special someone, you're likely to come to the conclusion that a certain joint task is best avoided.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The more you put on airs, the more likely someone will be to see through the deception. It's best to take an honest approach today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may take a more "rough and tumble" approach to a certain issue today. Not everyone is willing to follow suit, but someone is.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You and an old friend have some making up to do today, after letting a misunderstanding hang in the air between you long enough.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to see things in your own way today, no matter what anyone else has to say about it. Solitude suits you right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must take care that you do not stoop to the kind of behavior that you are trying to correct in someone else. Take the high road.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to translate someone's messages into a language you understand -- and that you can apply to your own situation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can combine style and substance to great effect today -- but take care you don't get caught up in unnecessary things. Maintain keen focus.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're undergoing a change of sorts, and not everyone is going to understand how or why. One friend in particular is on your side in this.
