Anyone born this week is born on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces. Just that one fact will give you a person of genius, one who will learn to combine the unique nature of the fixed sign of Aquarius with the mystical water sign of Pisces.

Totally different than most people on one hand and then totally angel-like on the other.

To combine the devil-may-care attitude of the Aquarian with the kind and loving nature of Pisces requires an effort few of us wish to be involved in or know about.

The person born this week is able to dish out the nonsense, but is also sensitive and compassionate. This sometimes causes problems since the native finds it difficult to deal with any anger or upset around them. They seldom realize they sometimes create the upset.


People born this week: Ashton Kutcher, Feb. 7, 1978; Ted Koppel, Feb. 8, 1940; Joe Pesci, Feb. 9, 1943; George Stephanopoulos, Feb. 10, 1961; Jennifer Aniston, Feb. 11, 1969; Buck Berry, Feb. 12, 1917; Henry Rollins, Feb. 13, 1961; Julia Ling, Feb. 14, 1983; and Matt Groening, Feb. 15, 1954.


New moon on Sunday, Feb. 10, offers you an opportunity to start a new venture before Mercury goes retrograde on Feb. 23 at 4:41 a.m. until March 17. Best day this week for new starts would be Tuesday. So get yourself ready to make a move if that is what you have in mind. Mars now in Pisces doesn’t usually offer as much energy as Mars in Aries will at the end of March.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Some of your temperamental pals could create some upset for you right now, but only if you are in a negative frame of mind. If you keep your mouth shut and just listen, the week will go much better and you will end up the winner. Otherwise expect the same old conditions to prevail.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) This is a good week for you to try to hold your own when it comes to your journey toward success. Don’t let the unnerved force you to do what you don’t want done. You need to stand your ground and protect what you have. If you don’t, you will be the loser – and you want to win.

The Many Arts Of Atlantic Highlands

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You may think you should be going in a new direction and that is good if you can get started before Feb. 23. Otherwise, use your head and relax for now and have faith. This is your year and if you can believe that, you will win far more than if you back off and let others take over your territory.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Your mood swings are taking on new meaning and because of the change, life will take on a glow. Look for a new love, a new look and certainly a new you. Uranus in Aries square your sun will bring about this awareness. There will also be a lifestyle you never really even thought would happen.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) This week could bring you a balanced outlook on your life and the changes you must make. As surprise events keep popping up in your life now you will want to add even more vim and vigor to your life. Try to surrender some of the long held control and you will be smiling and find a new BFF.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Join forces with loved ones and fight the unknown. If you can just handle that idea successfully and let go of the total control issues you will win. Otherwise it will continue to be the same old story. You do the work and others reap the benefits. It is all up to you.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Your ambition to be the best is best admired by all who know you. Now it is time to more forward and push for the success you know you deserve. That takes plenty of planning and a total time investment. A new friend could be helpful. All you need to do is ask.

Get Planting: Spring Has Sprung

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Any new venture you start now will be successful if you put your whole heart into the job. So decide what it is you wish to achieve and then go for it with all your heart. A new love could turn up and offer you help just when you need it. Accept the advice and move on with you plan.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) You may have accomplished just what you think you want. But there is more to do and now is the time to look around and discover just what needs doing to get you where you want to be in about a year. Get started and move a little faster. Keep looking for love. It is there.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) One important move you need to make now is to find a change of pace. You need to reflect on what you expect to happen within weeks and start working toward an exact goal soon. Otherwise you will miss a real chance to make it big – both socially and financially.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) If you have not accomplished what needed to be done then pick up the pieces left over and get started within the week. You are missing an adventure in learning that you can’t afford to miss. Bring a BFF along for the adventure. Stop misjudging who your friends are and move on.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Your creative soul needs a new outlet. So join your pals who also want to create and look for new outlets. An old friend might need a little advice that you could quickly offer and it would be a big help. Neptune in Pisces is a blessing to those looking for spiritual answers. And you are.
