Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For February 08, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is not the time to insist on doing things your way; indeed, you are best to let someone else call the shots, at least temporarily.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know that you are right for a certain job, but not everyone thinks so. Take the time today to assemble the best case in your favor.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not always be the best at proving your point; you'd rather let your actions speak for you. Today, however, you must be persuasive.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Wherever you go today, you're likely to encounter those who have adopted a very different mindset from your own. This is no setback!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It shouldn't take much for you to put your best foot forward today; you are shining brightly, and others are surely taking notice.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to wait longer than expected for a meeting that sets the tone for what lies ahead. Use the time to prepare for all contingencies.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are not as interested in a current project as you were only a short time ago, perhaps. Today, you can devise a new and exciting plan.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- While one of your "pet" ideas was applicable a while ago, today it is much more important -- and it's likely to get the support it deserves.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't be afraid of random developments today; indeed, you can use them to your advantage, especially when dealing with a rival.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must keep your cool when things transpire in a way that is very different from what you were led to expect. Things change -- and so be it!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be willing to do a little legwork today before getting down to business with someone who knows the ropes better than you do.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to work harder than usual today to convince someone that a project you've devised is worth the time and money it will require.
