HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017: This year you will continue to be more verbal than in the past. You won’t hesitate to let others know how you feel. If you start pushing and manipulating someone to get your way, you could be witness to a huge backfire. If you are single, your outgoing personality melts barriers quickly. When you meet the right person, which could be this year, you will know. If you are attached, the two of you communicate effectively. Don’t let a neighbour or sibling interfere with your bond. Aries knows how to make his or her ideas sink into your mind.
The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Finally, events seem to be flowing more easily than in the recent past. You know where you are heading, and you can coast down that path without any interference. Someone might decide to give you some flak at the last minute; don’t let it get to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Move slowly, even if everything seems A-OK. Though you might have the cosmic green light, your path could be fraught with several different obstacles.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You could be more focused on gaining success than on handling a project. A meeting proves to be more effective than you thought possible. You might need to read between the lines with a business dealing. Look to others for feedback.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Where your friends are might be the best place for you to be, too. Focus on getting through what must get done, no matter what, so that you can join your pals
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Say little when others head in the direction that they feel is right. Your interaction with someone at a distance will enlighten you about a situation for which you might not have all the facts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) One-on-one relating is likely to take you down a new path. A partner will show a great deal of interest in how you are handling a particular risk. Help this person understand why he or she doesn’t need to be so nervous. A loved one might create an uproar. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) A partner could be intent on moving in the direction that he or she chooses. You might butt heads with this person, as you don’t seem to see eye to eye on a key topic.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You have a lot of ground to cover and the determination to do just that. You might want to focus on where you can make the biggest difference. You could feel as if people are more responsive to you right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might want to handle a burning desire by starting to go for it. Your creativity soars to an unprecedented level. Use your resourcefulness to solve a problem, and use your time more effectively. Someone might want to push you professionally.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You generally are quite agreeable and say the right words at the right time. You could be unusually playful and not think about the words you are choosing to say. As a result, your statement could be too blunt for someone’s feelings not to be hurt.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Speak your mind. Pressure builds because you have a tendency to replay a situation over and over again in your mind. You’ll feel energized because of someone’s efforts to draw you in to a project to become more involved in what he or she is doing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Pretend that there is a yellow light flashing over your bank account. If you use some caution with your finances today, you will feel much better and more in control in the future. A friend might be insistent on having his or her way. Just go with the flow.
