One outstanding trait of the Aquarian born this week would certainly be their ability to stand out in a crowd. Because this fixed air sign does not like to conform to many rules, they are often thought of as rebellious.

Being known as a rebel fits the character of many Aquarians. They do not like to follow the crowd. Although they enjoy people, they still like being known as different and loners.

Also, since Aquarius is a fixed sign they seldom agree with anyone, but since they like being with people, they often join groups. Once this fixed sign joins a new club they want to change it. But once the change is made, they often leave anyway.

This sign spends plenty of time with friends, but since they are such rebels they often find themselves alone.

The story is that Aquarius often has a problem with one-to-one relationships and because of that they make great short-term pals.


People born this week: Lisa Marie Presley, Feb. 1, 1968; Christie Brinkley, Feb. 2, 1954; Morgan Fairchild, Feb. 3, 1950; Betty Friedan, Feb. 4, 1921; Jennifer Jason Leigh, Feb. 5, 1962; Natalie Cole, Feb. 6, 1950; Chris Rock, Feb. 7, 1962; and Gary Coleman, Feb. 8, 1968.


Mercury and Mars will join Neptune in Pisces by the end of the week. So if you are feeling dreamy and looking for romance that could be the reason. When you combine those three planets in Pisces you might end up looking for love. Best day to discover a new venture would be Feb. 2, Groundhog Day. The moon will be in Scorpio trine Pisces. Great time.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) This is no week to make a promise or even a simple plan because you will change your mind and then be stuck with one more promise you wish you never made. So be smart and stay on the fence for just a little while longer. If you are considering a new BFF, hold off. It just won’t work right now.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) This is a week when you should avoid people who cause you problems. You need to find pals who enjoy the peace and calm, not the nonconforming people who cause you trouble. With Saturn opposite your sun you need to watch yourself and stay out of the limelight – or expect trouble.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)  Jupiter should bring some fancy news this week. So prepare to open your mind and heart to a dream of yours. If you don’t get some notice now you need to take some fast action and change your style. With Jupiter moving through Gemini you should hear of some golden opportunities. Reach out.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) It takes persistence and patience to get where you want to go. So keep pushing yourself to achieve your long-held goals. This is no time to sit around dreaming your dreams. It is time to make things happen. A fellow worker could be a big help in moving forward toward your ultimate goal.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Keep your loved ones informed about your every move right now. They deserve to be informed of your new ventures. A new BFF could also help you with your latest opportunities. Just don’t turn too much responsibility over to anyone else. The tide is turning in your favor.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Seeking advice from a loved one is a wise move right now. Take the advice to heart and set tight boundaries concerning your new mode of operation. Once you accomplished this task you are on the way to big success. Have confidence in your work and it will pay off well.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) A bold statement concerning your future and what you plan to do next should be prepared. After all, friends are waiting for your next adventure into teaching new subjects. It is up to you to accept the responsibility and move into new areas. They will love your next program.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) With Saturn now moving slowing in Scorpio you need to accept more responsibility for your life. The more you can accept the better you will feel, plus you will have many more opportunities to make some change for the better. Look for an old pal to offer you some good advice and offer help.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Your life could turn upside down if you are interested. Uranus in Aries offers you many great opportunities to move and find your real heart’s desire. Don’t make a move unless you are really sure of what you want. Once you decide, move fast. It is time to step out of your comfort zone.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) You should be looking at a transformation in your thinking. If you are not, then review your opportunities at work and see what you can do. There are some people who sincerely want to help you make a business move and they could really help you with some important introductions.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) If you are having a few mood swings now don’t worry since Mars is about to move into Pisces and leave you alone. Less worry would be a great opportunity for you to meet your goals. You need to develop a stronger faith in yourself. Then there will be no stopping you.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) You may be setting out to start a new venture and if you do, it is good. Just outline your goals and be sure of your new direction. Otherwise you will find yourself in the midst of a program you don’t really want to be involved in. By handling details and direction you are making sure of success.
