Born today, you are one of the most thoughtful individuals born under your sign, and, in fact, there are those who would simply label you an "intellectual" -- though you know, and those who know you best know, that there is much more to you than thoughts, ideas, notions and puzzles. Just as much a doer as a thinker, you can often be found up and at some new endeavor that inspires you and has you striving to be your best -- in both thought and action.
You are the kind of person other people can come to for guidance and inspiration, and you give it freely, without any thought of remuneration or payment of any kind. This generosity is likely to become an identifying trait -- the kind that lets others know just with whom they are dealing. You are confident, however, that what you do for others will come back to you in some way, eventually.
Also born on this date are: Shakira, singer; Farrah Fawcett, actress; Tommy Smothers, comedian; Christie Brinkley, model; James Joyce, author; Graham Nash, singer and songwriter; Brent Spiner, actor; Stan Getz, musician.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll find yourself in a familiar position today, and yet when the wheels start turning, things will happen quite differently. Be prepared.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to give yourself time for self-assessment today as you work on a new, important project that you are learning by doing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day for you to catch up with those who have been going their separate ways for quite a while -- but don't spread yourself too thin!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A message from a friend has you making plans. Give yourself more time to make what would normally be a "routine" decision. A deadline looms.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be surprised to learn what a rival has been up to lately. Perhaps this gives you the inspiration you've been waiting for. Go get 'em!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You likely have to go about things today very differently from the way you had planned. Now is no time to second-guess yourself; be confident.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's time for you to commit to doing a certain thing or not doing it; vacillating between "yes" and "no" is doing no one any good right now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Make no excuses today, but get down to business as quickly as you can. By day's end, you'll surely have something to show for your efforts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Almost everything you do today will put you at some risk, one way or the other. You're willing to forge ahead taking necessary precautions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You receive a promise from someone who has not, in the past, been quite so accommodating. This marks a change in the relationship.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Wishing won't make it so today, whatever "it" may be -- and you know full well that you must take decisive action sooner rather than later.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your labors will surely be appreciated today, even though they won't really result in anything concrete. The time will come to measure success.
