AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dealing with unpredictable family and friends can be profoundly challenging. They may rarely listen but may still expect you to. Before getting reactive, try some kind of diplomatic social workaround.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The silly encounters which drive the plots of romantic comedies won’t happen when you’re looking for a serious relationship, unless you are in the right personal cycles. Someone might care about details and expect that you should, too.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The ultimate harvest of commendations and praise for all you do comes at the right time in your personal stars. Any recognition you receive now might feel like it is well deserved; you likely worked hard for it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There’s no need to rock the boat if things are running smoothly. You could run a risk of making mistakes by changing your mind at the last minute. Don’t chase any kind of high to the point that it overcomes your balance and well-being.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This may be a good time to make sure that you have complied with all the rules. Getting to the actual truth may require a diplomatic approach, but the alternative of letting the facts slide might not be a viable option.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): If looking for love in all the usual places is not working, it’s likely the timing is off. Wait for a personal Cinderella cycle, then try again. After you’ve made a first impression and gelled the attraction, build up the friendship.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): See through the fog and past any pretenses. Don’t waste your money on a passing fancy that might not be quite as advertised. A love of excitement and desire for something unique could make risks especially tempting now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make promises carefully and uphold them unfailingly. Fulfilling your promises and obligations is always important to maintain trust. If something got in the way and you dropped a ball, make sincere amends.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There can be safety in numbers, and you might feel exhilarated when you are part of a group or a member of a crowd. Keeping new acquaintances at arm’s length until you know them better can be a very wise idea.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Regardless of how good you and the people around you are, there will always be some drawbacks. Remain patient in the face of any unexpected changes and upheaval. Even if it’s not your fault, you still must be understanding.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be sympathetic and compassionate, but don’t hesitate to draw the line if needed. Empathy only works with effective boundaries Follow your head along with your heart and you should come through just fine.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Money isn’t everything, but lack of it causes untold problems and negative ripple effects. Concentrate on your work first before you head out to meet pals. There should be time to socialize over the weekend.
IF FEBRUARY 9 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your self-confidence might be at a high point during the coming six to eight weeks, so you could be tempted to make unwise choices or be faced with disruptions of your own making. If a change is forced upon you, however, you should have the wisdom and resilience to turn it to your advantage and emerge unscathed. You can be insightful about money and business, but at the same time could be unsettled about your long-term goals. You may look forward to more peaceful times in April when you can be more carefree. You might struggle to get ahead in May so consider waiting until at least June to interview for a new position or make an important commitment. That is a time when your attractiveness and public image are likely enhanced, so you could potentially get a job, make a new start, or form a romantic partnership that could seem to have a spark of destiny in it.
