HAPPY BIRTH­DAY for Thurs­day, Feb. 16, 2017: This year your in­ten­sity and de­ter­mi­na­tion emerge as a strong com­bi­na­tion. You seem able to ac­com­plish what­ever you want. You might de­cide to lay out your goals so that you can de­ter­mine which di­rec­tion to head in. If you are sin­gle, you prob­a­bly will meet some­one of in­ter­est any­time from now un­til Novem­ber. This bond will have an in­ten­sity that could scare you at times, but you will love that close­ness most of the time. If you are at­tached, the two of you be­come very vis­i­ble as a cou­ple. Ver­bal­ize your feel­ings more of­ten. Scor­pio tends to find out about your deep­est se­crets.

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) Con­ver­sa­tions be­tween you and trusted as­so­ciates seem to have a harsh tone. You might be told that you are a bit too sar­cas­tic. Be smart, and refuse to have a knee-jerk re­ac­tion. Give in to the need to in­form oth­ers of your per­cep­tions.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20) Ini­ti­ate talks, and refuse to give in to some­one’s need for con­trol. Re­mem­ber that you can win a power play only by not get­ting in­volved. You have a charm­ing qual­ity about you that ap­peals to many ad­mir­ers.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 20) Pace your­self, know­ing that you have a lot of ground to cover. Be more di­rect in how you han­dle a per­sonal mat­ter. Oth­ers might not be as clued in to what is go­ing on as you.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22) You have a unique sense of hu­mour that is likely to take you in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. While bosses or as­so­ciates are com­plain­ing, you will be off ac­com­plish­ing more than your fair share of work. Ded­i­cate spe­cial time to a child or loved one. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can’t get past a prob­lem and come to an un­der­stand­ing with­out the co­op­er­a­tion of a room­mate or close as­so­ciate. You un­der­stand that it will take both of you work­ing to­gether to find a re­sponse. Be as di­rect as pos­si­ble when deal­ing with a friend.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You will speak your mind clearly, and oth­ers will hear what you are say­ing. Your in­ten­sity emerges as well. An as­so­ciate or loved one could be re­ac­tive, as he or she doesn’t seem to un­der­stand where you are com­ing from.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You could be out of con­trol right now. Share more of what is on your mind. Some­one close to you might push to have his or her way. Opt for clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Un­less you are deal­ing with a life-or-death is­sue, let this per­son take the lead.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your will­ing­ness to ver­bal­ize an in­ter­nal is­sue in­di­cates the im­por­tance of you want­ing and need­ing to re­solve it. Oth­ers seem drawn to you, and they are more than will­ing to work out a prob­lem. Use your charisma and in­sight­ful­ness.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’ll sense that some­thing is go­ing on be­hind the scenes. You might want to open up this mat­ter for dis­cus­sion. The wise move is to say and do noth­ing for now. What you be­lieve is hap­pen­ing might not be the cor­rect sce­nario.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might be­lieve that you have every­thing un­der con­trol, but know that you could ex­pe­ri­ence some dis­com­fort on a per­sonal level. An is­sue in­volv­ing real es­tate is likely to emerge. Know that you’ll be able to han­dle it with ease.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are a great source of in­for­ma­tion, but when some­one hears too many facts, he or she might feel over­loaded and get up­set. Take this re­ac­tion as your cue to walk away from the sit­u­a­tion. Be gra­cious and just sub­tly take a step back.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could have a lot of chat­ter in­side your head that keeps pop­ping up at ran­dom times. You might not be sure which way to go. Un­der­stand what you want to do, and then de­cide if it seems pos­si­ble. Open up to new ideas and start plan­ning.
