Born today, you are no stranger to walking that fine line between success and failure, and much that you will do in life, both personally and professionally, will be done while you are perched carefully between these two extremes. Despite this, you are the kind of person other people can depend on when the going gets tough, and you know how to "talk turkey" when the time comes. You also know how to face down your enemies when you are called upon to do so.
You can harbor doubts and insecurity, but you do your best to keep them to yourself whenever possible. Those closest to you know how to read the signs, and you are careful to burden only them with this other, "weaker" side of your personality, for you know they can handle it -- and help you handle it as well.
Also born on this date are: Henry "Hank" Aaron, baseball player; Jeremy Sumpter, actor; Bobby Brown, singer; Sara Evans, singer; Michael Sheen, actor; Roger Staubach, football player; Jennifer Jason Leigh, actress; Laura Linney, actress.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are considering taking action today where no action is required, and poking around where you do not belong can invite unnecessary risks.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A question of "official policy" will be answered today -- though not necessarily to your satisfaction. You'll want to explore further, surely.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Pace yourself today, and be sure to tend to your own basic needs as you check items off your to-do list. You are not a superhuman, after all!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must adopt a more accommodating stance today if you're going to get along with those in your immediate circle. Don't be so inflexible!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which was uncertain only yesterday is far more likely to come to pass today -- now that you're truly ready for it. Memories can be made!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you say today will figure prominently in someone's decision-making process. This is not something you can count on forever!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can learn a great deal today by watching others struggle with a certain difficult situation. By day's end, you'll be making a viable plan.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your own system of checks and balances may not be enough to ensure your success today -- but you still have time. Focus on tomorrow's activities.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You don't want to get yourself locked into a pattern of behavior without knowing what the benefits really are. Investigate thoroughly!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have what it takes to meet a certain challenge today, but this doesn't mean you have to do so alone. A friend betters the odds.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be tempted to go back to an old way of doing certain things, but this is not advised at this time. Continue along your path.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your ability to take seemingly disparate pieces of information and assemble them in a way that makes sense pays off for you and others.
