HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017: This year you might be more stubborn than you realize. You are also prone toward impulsiveness. Make it a point to slow down and take in the big picture. Detach as much as possible, and you will feel better. If you are single, you could meet someone quite exotic and different from you. Whether or not this is a long-term bond, you will change because of relating to this person. If you are attached, getting 100 per cent involved in whatever you are doing will result in a stronger bond between you and your sweetie. You will enjoy all the one-on-one time you can get. Taurus knows how to get you fired up.
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) 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.
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.
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?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might have had enough of someone else’s nagging. Your cold shoulder is likely to let this person know that you have had enough! Listen to news with a big smile. Toward the end of the day, you will feel like celebrating.
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.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to make a decision, but you recognize that you need to depend on a key person. A discussion could be difficult at best. Honour a fast change, knowing full well what is about to happen. Trust that you will see the big picture. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Defer to a partner who feels secure. This person has quite a few ideas that you might want to listen to. Be willing to let go and trust your gut. Later in the day, several intense talks are likely to fill your agenda. Brainstorm away.
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.
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. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ll discover how different your opinion is from someone else’s. A domestic matter or real estate issue weaves right through your day. Know what you want and go for it, but know that you could change your mind about your objective later.
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.
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.
