HAPPY BIRTHDAY|Feb. 5: This year you become even more intellectual than you have been in the past. You can charm someone at the drop of a hat. If you are single, romance heats up your life. You are likely to go through a sequence of dating several potential suitors before you meet The One. The period from now until October will prove to be particularly fruitful for love. If you are attached, the two of you often have a ball together. Gemini inevitably makes you laugh at what you typically might try to avoid.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might sense a change in a partner or friend. This person usually is caring, but right now they seem to be somewhat distracted. You’ll wonder what is going on, but you could have a hard time getting them to open up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will be watching your budget after recent indulgences. That information could be useful in stopping you from repeating this behavior. Decide to rein in your spending.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll be more energized today than you have been in a while. You could be delighted by how rewarding it is to accommodate someone at a distance. You even might decide that the time has come to get together with this person.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Today is the right day to embrace being lazy and not push yourself so hard. With everything that has been happening around you lately, you could be overly tired and want to withdraw.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your words have a profound effect on a loved one. Just watch this person’s facial expressions as you discuss a serious matter. Get together with others for brunch, and enjoy the moment as you catch up on each other’s news.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Bring everybody together for an early dinner. Invite family and friends, and encourage them to each bring an item. Others are aware of what you are doing and why. Allow your sense of humor to come out when dealing with a partner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Reach out to someone you care about. In fact, making the Sunday rounds of calls might be particularly rewarding today. Make plans to go to a concert or movie later in the day. You will enjoy letting your mind escape.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Defer to others but first make sure that their ideas suit you. If a loved one knew what you were doing, they might find you to be rather controlling. A child or loved one could touch you on a deep level.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You have a tendency to be a bit down on yourself at times. Nothing makes you happier than hanging out with a jovial friend. Don’t give in to your moodier side; instead, go off and enjoy the moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You have been so busy lately that you might not want to go out for a day or two. Spend the day getting into more leisurely activities, when you can recharge and feel much better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can be unusually serious at times, but not at the present moment. You might feel as if you are kid in a candy store with a big smile on your face and a craving for mischief. A friend or a potential loved one will want to be involved in what you are up to.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might want to stay close to home and relax. However, a boss or older relative seems to need your help. You would not even consider saying “no” to this person, as they are a big supporter of yours.
