For Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017:
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Put your best foot forward. The unexpected could elicit an element of confusion. Several close loved ones will come forward and prove to be helpful. Take an overview of the present situation. Detach, and you will feel better and more secure. Tonight: Think “weekend.”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You might want to pull back and think before you take action. Use the morning and part of the afternoon to re-evaluate a decision. You could be flipping back and forth between two approaches. This process helps you to see more clearly. Tonight: You feel up to snuff.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Use the daylight hours to zero in on what you want. You could find that others are acting unpredictably, each embodying his or her unique style. Nevertheless, a wonderful opportunity emerges. What is stopping you? Tonight: You are going to need all the rest you can get.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Reach out to someone you care about, as he or she always puts an interesting slant on an issue. Be willing to explore new ideas. Detach from a person who seems interesting but is closed down. Avoid negativity, if possible. Tonight: A friend could play a strong role.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Reach out to an associate who makes all the difference when you work with him or her. You both are competent, but you produce a better product when you work together. Don’t feel challenged by this person’s energy. Tonight: Go along with a friend’s suggestion.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Let a creative person give you strong feedback. You might be put off by one of his or her requests and will try to pull away. Once you give someone a reaction, try to mellow out some. Deal with what needs to be handled. Tonight: Grab an opportunity for a little R and R.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You will state your case and also support yourself in heading in a certain direction. You could find it nearly impossible to continue down your chosen path. You might opt to be more spontaneous and impulsive. Count on there being ramifications. Tonight: Settle in.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Continue your disciplined approach in order to get more of what you want. You could feel frustrated by not being able to do everything you had set out to do. An unexpected windfall or expense could throw your present comfortable status in the air. Tonight: Mellow out.
