Happy Birthday Aquarius! This sign of the Zodiac loves the unusual. They choose to be unique and totally different from their peers. Aquarians want to be known as avant-garde, modern and unpredictable.

It is hard to pin down an Aquarian, since they can detach from emotional situations very easily. Because they are quick to adopt anything new and different, they are the types who latch onto Facebook or Twitter and become addicted quickly.

Ashton Kutcher is an Aquarian born on February 7, 1978. And you can bet he liked the idea of being involved with an older woman. He even married Demi Moore, who is a Scorpio born on November 11, 1962,

But when it is over, it is over. Plus, Aquarius and Scorpio are fixed signs and that is a tough combination. An Aquarian gets along best with a Libra or Gemini. Anyone born this week needs plenty of space and freedom.

People born this week: Morgan Fairchild, February 3, 1950; Betty Friedan, February 4, 1921; Jennifer Jason Leigh, February 5, 1962; Natalie Cole, February 6, 1950; Chris Rock, February 7, 1962; Gary Coleman, February 8, 1968; Mia Farrow, February 9, 1945.

Emotions will run high this week since it is just days until the full moon on Tuesday. If you are looking for a weekend drama this is the time of the month to expect some excitement.

The best day this week will be Wednesday, Feb. 8. Just watch the hour between 11:42 a.m. and 12:32 p.m. when the moon will be void of course. A VOC moon is like Mercury retrograde, so don’t sign anything for that hour. The nighttime hours will be the best when the moon trines Jupiter. It could bring some good luck, or at least the promise of a good time.

Aries (March 21 – April 20) This week could prove to be mighty exciting and it could roll in your favor, so just watch your emotions and stay in control of your temper. Once you accomplish that you will have smooth sailing and a good time. Should a significant other want to have a talk, try and postpone it for a week.

Recipe: No Bake Icebox Cake

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) This will be a great time for you if you are careful and don’t spend more than you earn. If you go over board you will be left out in the cold and be one sorry soul. So just watch out and don’t let yourself be talked into anything you don’t need or want.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) You might have a decision to make, but before taking action it would be wise to consider the alternatives and go slowly. After all, we are in a full moon period, which is certainly not a good decision making time. Unless it is a matter of life or death it would be wise to call for a short delay.

Cancer (June 21 – July 20) Some of the life-changing issues that are before you can be delayed until next week. If that is possible to pull off you might consider it. If you must move on the issues, try going at it with plenty of consideration and kindness. Try to slow things down; it will turn out in your favor if you can.

Leo (July 21 – August 20) It is time to focus on what it is you really want to happen at home. Stop and give it plenty of thought before taking a step. Try looking at all avenues before you reach the final conclusion. Remember, once you make up your mind there will be no turning back.

Virgo (August 21 – September 20) There are some wonderful opportunities coming your way and if you continue to be confused you will miss the best. Reflect a little on what you really want to happen by the end of the month. Since you work really hard, take just a little time before it is final.

Libra (September 21 – October 20) Some of the long-term projects you have in the works may need further review before they are final. Take this emotional time of the month to look around at all the opportunities. If you feel the same by the end of the month, then make the big move.

Educating the World One Child At A Time

Scorpio (October 21 – November 20) This is a time frame when you could discover a totally new tug at your heartstrings. Unless you are prepared to make a number of adjustments it would be smart to hold off and reconsider what it is you truly want. Quick action right now would be unwise, so slow down.

Sagittarius (November 21 – December 20) Because you enjoy action you might continue to consider some new adventures outside of your usual box. Just wait until the end of next week before signing on the dotted line. You will make a move but take just a few days before making it final.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20) This is a week when emotions will be high at least until Tuesday, so play it cool. There is no real need to rush since you are in a top spot. You will make out well financially whether you move fast or slow down. Call in a favor if you need some help.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 20) Try and realize this week that emotions are running strong, and that means your emotions, too. If you are changing your mind a lot you are right on target – so is everyone else. You will make some changes for the better this week or next. That is a positive. You can’t avoid it.

Pisces (February 21 – March 20) It is time to collect on some past favors, so call a pal or two and make the request. It is the perfect week to ask for help. Listen to your heart when it comes to making any final, hard-core decisions. You will be happy when it is over because you will be right on the right side.
