HAPPY BIRTH­DAY for Satur­day, Feb. 18, 2017:

This year you are goal-ori­ented and nearly im­pos­si­ble to dis­tract. You of­ten have sev­eral dif­fer­ent thoughts run­ning through your mind at once. Be care­ful, as you could re­main so fo­cused on what you’re think­ing that you won’t hear what oth­ers are shar­ing. If you are sin­gle, you are likely to meet some­one of im­por­tance. Ini­tially you might feel shy, but you’ll open up given some time. If you are at­tached, you and your sweetie of­ten agree, but when you dis­agree, you’ll find it dif­fi­cult to see where the other per­son is com­ing from. Im­prove on your lis­ten­ing skills. SAGITTARIUS adds con­fu­sion to the mix!

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)

You might want to reach out for more in­for­ma­tion. The more you seek out oth­ers’ opin­ions, the greater the like­li­hood is that you’ll feel bet­ter. Oth­ers will have sim­i­lar re­ac­tions, too. Per­form a fact-check be­fore head­ing a cer­tain way. Tonight: Try out a new type of cui­sine.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20)

You could feel as if noth­ing you do seems to get through to some­one you care about. You might in­dulge in more one-on-one talks in or­der to gain a new per­spec­tive. Be­cause of your in­nate bias, you tend to pick out the de­tails that best suit your goals. Tonight: In­dulge a part­ner.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

De­fer­ring to oth­ers does not hap­pen eas­ily for you. You might want to try go­ing with the flow more of­ten, and not act as if you must al­ways be right. Pres­sure builds when you de­fer, be­cause it is hard for you not to put in your two cents. Tonight: Go along with a sug­ges­tion.

CAN­CER (June 21-July 22)

Pac­ing your­self to ac­com­plish cer­tain must-do chores in ad­di­tion to al­low­ing for some free time af­ter­ward can be done. Avoid a ten­dency to get caught up in some­one else’s per­sonal mat­ters in an ef­fort to help him or her. Tonight: Know when to call it a night.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You can be sure that a child or loved one will do his or her dance around you in an at­tempt to be no­ticed. How could you pos­si­bly ig­nore this per­son? Your sense of hu­mor emerges when deal­ing with some­one who sees life very dif­fer- ently. Tonight: Act as if there were no to­mor­row.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your sense of hu­mor emerges when lis­ten­ing to a room­mate or fam­ily mem­ber who of­ten seems to spin out in two dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions at once. You will ap­pre­ci­ate this per­son’s ef­forts, even though they might seem a bit off-the-wall. Tonight: Get into the mo­ment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Man­age what is hap­pen­ing with clar­ity, and un­der­stand what is ex­pected of you. Just do your best to keep com­mu­ni­ca­tion flow­ing. You might feel a need to stay close to home. Try not to be dis­tracted or head in a di­rec­tion that does not suit you. Tonight: At your fa­vorite haunt.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your pos­ses­sive streak emerges fre­quently. You have tried dif­fer­ent ways of han­dling this trait, to no avail. Know that you can’t con­trol an­other per­son, nor can you make him or her do any­thing he or she doesn’t want to. Tonight: Off to try a new spot with a loved one.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Even if you have been in a bah-hum­bug mood as of late, you fi­nally will clear the air to­day. You will look to new pos­si­bil­i­ties. Your bright, sunny smile could throw an ad­mirer or two into a tizzy, as they are used to the more somber you. Tonight: Out with a fa­vorite per­son.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You can’t seem to change your di­rec­tion, no mat­ter what goes on around you. You might feel pushed and per­haps even ir­ri­tated. Note the moods of oth­ers as well. Know that you are likely to feel very dif­fer­ently in an hour or so. Take a walk, if need be. Tonight: Not to be found.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your idea of a great week­end is get­ting to­gether with friends. Be sure to fol­low-through on bring­ing your fa­vorite peo­ple to­gether, whether it is for a spon­ta­neous party or just a sim­ple trip to din­ner and the movies with friends. Tonight: Just en­joy every sin­gle mo­ment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Oth­ers de­mand a lot from you right now. You have some in­tense re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that weigh heav­ily on your shoul­ders. You’ll want to han­dle them ASAP. Once you free your­self up, the pos­si­bil­i­ties will mul­ti­ply. Tonight: Count on nearly be­ing a rock star with your pop­u­lar­ity.
