Born today, you may not be the one in the spotlight at all times, but you are surely essential when it comes to keeping things going and ensuring that a given agenda is promoted and ultimately comes to fruition. Where others may be stars, capable of attracting attention with charisma, charm and the ability to inspire, you get things done through sheer will and hard work -- and a refusal to see things left undone!
Despite the fact that you are able to focus with single-minded dedication and unmatched intensity on the things that have to get done, you have a soft spot for family members, and you will almost always drop what you are doing when someone you love needs your attention, counsel or affection. Home is, indeed, where the heart is!
Also born on this date are: Rosa Parks, civil rights activist; Alice Cooper, singer; Kimberly Wyatt, singer; Oscar De La Hoya, boxer; Natalie Imbruglia, singer and songwriter; Charles Lindbergh, pioneer aviator; Clint Black, singer; David Brenner, comedian.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may require a fresh start today -- but not if you're willing to make the best of a situation that doesn't give you the greatest advantage.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You learn an important lesson just in time to teach it to someone else. This isn't the last time you'll pass on such learning.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A little more power may be required today. You know where to apply it, but you may be afraid that others aren't ready for it. Let that go!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone from your past sends you a message today -- and how you got it may be a mystery for a long time. Still, you must heed its warning.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A laid-back, generous approach is best today. Those who are your beneficiaries will certainly appreciate how you give them enough space.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll be in awe of what someone is able to do today, and for a while some will chalk it up to magic. You know better, however.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be tempted to hide your feelings today, but that's likely to prove the wrong approach when all is said and done. The truth will come out!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Those who gravitate toward you do so because of that certain something that is so difficult to name. If you know what it is, say so.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your attempts to hide what you are really doing, or what is going on beneath the surface, will likely backfire. Many know the truth now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll discover today that the instructions you've been giving others really did the trick, but there may be some corrections still to make.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to progress today much more quickly than expected. Others will come to your aid if you find you have to pack up and move on!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Whom you get to do a job in your stead today will matter much more than the pace at which the job gets done. Pick the right people!
