Happy birthday for Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018:
This year you will be more active in creating your own reality. The unexpected often occurs when dealing with others. You frequently need to confirm that you and others are on the same page. You might not always agree, which is OK. Your sign is associated with friendship and goodwill. If you are single, others find you particularly charming. Take your time making decisions about whom you’d like to date. If you are attached, the two of you often have different financial concerns. You might need to address them sooner rather than later. VIRGO uses precision when dealing with money matters.
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 be just landing from yesterday’s Full Moon eclipse. Give yourself some time before making any decisions about recent events. You will want to squash a display of arrogance. Let it go, and you’ll be much happier as a result. Tonight: Get organized.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
If you need some time off to recharge your batteries, try to make it happen. Your anger doesn’t usually come to the surface; however, given the present circumstances, you might be concerned about saying something you won’t be able to take back. Tonight: Lead the way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You would prefer to avoid a difficult situation. Know that if you bypass the issue, you will just be prolonging the inevitable. You might be best off clearing the air as quickly as possible. You then can focus your energy on completing a key project. Tonight: Catch up on others’ news.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You might want to have a discussion about your choices after you balance your checkbook. Until you do that, you will not have a valid concept of what is possible. Do not negate a possibility until you have given it adequate consideration. Tonight: Hang with friends.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Use the morning for any matter that appears to be critical. You could be distracted in the afternoon, and will want to handle other issues. You might want to approach a financial matter differently from how a loved one does. Tonight: Head down the path that seems best for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your energy level rises in the afternoon as you wonder what you need to do in order to maintain the pace that you desire. You are likely to be surprised by how much spontaneity invigorates you. Others notice your dynamic liveliness. Prioritize. Tonight: All smiles.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You could be in a situation that needs to be completed ASAP. By the afternoon, other matters take a high priority and could be distracting, to say the least. You even might want to retreat. Curb spending, as you easily might go overboard. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Zero in on a high priority in the afternoon. You seem to be able to elicit others’ feedback more easily at that point. Deal with an older person you have been meaning to respond to. Get to the bottom of a problem through an intense conversation. Tonight: Where the action is.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Accepting additional responsibilities that are dropped on you from out of the blue might be difficult. You come from a place where you need to recharge your energy while still having to push to meet certain demands. Tonight: Your instincts will lead you down the right path.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Reach out to someone at a distance whom you care a lot about. The unexpected occurs when dealing with a group of acquaintances. Take an overview, if possible. An interaction could be more significant than you realize. Tonight: Break past a feeling of boredom and/or loneliness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
One-on-one relating draws a strong response. The unexpected seems to mark your day. Stay open to someone else’s perspective. See what is going on with a boss who could be unusually vitriolic. You might need to regroup. Tonight: Have a long-overdue talk.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Others want control, and you will be much more content if you let them run the show. Your finances have an unpredictable quality to them, so reach out to an expert who knows a lot more than you about the topic at hand. A friend has a suggestion. Tonight: Where the action is.
