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.
