Born today, you are destined to rise to the top of your chosen profession -- provided, of course, that you develop your skills in a disciplined, productive fashion and never let yourself rest on your laurels. Indeed, to squander talents such as yours would surely be a tragedy -- and you mustn't ever do less than what is possible in any given situation. You know how to communicate all manner of thoughts and ideas to all manner of people, and this talent may lead you to a career in the arts -- for what could be more communicative than that?
When it comes to personal relationships, you must always be willing to take other people's advice, for you tend to be rather inconsistent and even irresponsible in your personal interactions. Why is this so? That's a question you could spend a lifetime trying to answer unsuccessfully.
Also born on this date are: Bob Marley, reggae singer and musician; Babe Ruth, baseball player; Ronald Reagan, actor, California governor and president; Axl Rose, singer; Rick Astley, singer; Natalie Cole, singer; Kathy Najimy, actress.
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- How your work is received will depend a great deal today on the timing of your delivery, and the attitude you display in all interactions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't be overly sentimental today; look at things the way they are, not the way you wish they would be. A certain mystery is solved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll be dealing with a long shot today, but that doesn't mean you have to lose anything in the process. You can and will play it safe.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've been given all you need to address a certain situation in the right way. Take the time to get the lay of the land before you begin.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You understand better than most what is going on today -- or what will be soon. It's time for you to take a more controlling stance, perhaps.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you see is not necessarily what you get today -- though you'll certainly be tempted by appearances. You'll soon embrace reality.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You should be able to do all that you have sworn to do today, despite any difficulties that arise. You must establish a steady pace.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The impossible is not about to stop you today, though you know full well that you cannot magically make it possible. Show off a little.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must deal with things in a straightforward manner today -- or not at all. Any attempt to avoid key issues will only backfire on you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more you rely on the plan you've made the more you'll achieve today. Improvisation is not favored at this time, for good reason.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Because of your native sensitivity, you may have trouble facing some situations, but you needn't be ruled by current events. Seek shelter.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are not going to let yourself be defined by a single activity; you want to be considered well-rounded and capable -- and you will be!
