Born today, you are the kind of person that other people look up to, admire, imitate and seek out for advice in times of difficulty. No matter what your profession may be, you are almost certain to serve as a mentor to others because of your ability to see things in new and different ways and to steer their thinking in new and different directions. You believe in nothing so much as the sanctity of the individual.
Because you tell it like it is and do your best to avoid the tricks that people play on each other again and again in their daily lives, you can be quite difficult to get to know because you eschew the kind of initial courtship period and get to know people deeply right out of the gate. Not everyone knows how to deal with such instant intimacy, however.
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.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be wounded unintentionally today by someone who isn't aware of your particular vulnerability, but recovery should be swift.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself gravitating toward those whose interests are different from your own. Clearly there's something you want to learn.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're going to have to work hard to keep everything in order today as others you know threaten to throw your business into chaos.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- "No" may be the only answer you hear today when you ask for permission to do this, that or the other thing. Should you do it anyway?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to have to ask yourself a question that you've feared someone else would ask. The answer surprises you -- but you can work with it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time to complicate matters. Focus on what must be done, and acknowledge that there are things you clearly must not do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Before the day is over, you're going to have to streamline your efforts in order to maximize your reward. You can't do everything all at once.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find it somewhat difficult today to control certain impulses. Why not give yourself completely free rein and see what follows?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to get only one more reminder about something you promised to do and haven't yet done. After that, it's all up to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your inability to stick to the script is likely to get in someone's way today. Improvisation has its place, but now is no time for it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your optimism is likely to be unmatched today, at least among those with whom you work or play. It's time to circulate a new idea, perhaps.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have trouble deciding between two paths today, each with features you find attractive. Someone lends perspective.
