An Aquarian born this week is a rebel with a cause.

This fixed-air sign enjoys involvement with people and, if they have a situation that needs fixing, that makes life even better for this air sign.

Aquarians are drawn to helping fix lives that are broken and in despair and in need of repair.

That is the elixir of life for an Aquarian. They are not people who like being alone. That is a skill they must learn and it can be a challenge since it must be forced on them. For an Aquarian to be alone is seldom a free-will choice.

This fixed sign has a determination and a drive to be unique and different than others.

People born this week: Justin Timberlake, Jan. 31, 1981; Harry Styles, Feb. 1, 1994; Ayn Rand, Feb. 2, 1905; Morgan Fairchild, Feb. 3, 1950; Oscar de la Hoya, Feb. 4, 1973; Jennifer Jason Leigh, Feb. 5, 1952; Axl Rose, Feb. 6, 1962; and Ashton Kutcher, Feb. 7, 1978.

The February full moon will fall on Valentine’s Day and the moon will be in Leo. So don’t be surprised if the day holds some drama. Of course Mercury will be retrograde then and that will just add to the joy of the day of love and laughter. Best day this week to finish up some projects would be Wednesday. Be aware that the retrograde time starts at 4:43 p.m. EST on Thursday.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) It is time to slow down. The reason is Mercury is retrograde for the rest of the month, making this no time to sign your name or promise a thing. As usual you often want what you want when you want it. But, if you follow your pattern, expect some unwanted challenge. Call a pal and get social.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Dealing with Saturn can sometimes be a challenge. But, if you look at it as a learning experience and keep smiling, this can be a glorious time. A long-held dream will come true shortly if you just keep up the hard work. A new friend will help you discover some new adventures.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You can be a driving force in the upcoming world you live in. So keep pushing your dream. “It can happen now” is your motto. By the end of this month you should be ready and willing to really start in the new direction your life is about to take. You should be living your dream.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) There may be some disruptions in your life now, but try staying on your path. Once you decide to really appreciate the new you, life will spin around. You are on the road to making some nice Jupiter changes. Don’t let the past take over your latest adventure. It won’t be worth it.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Your newest creative interests could turn into much more if you just let it happen. A phase of your life is coming to a close and a new, more demanding lifestyle is set to start. Don’t let anything happen until the end of the month. By then you will be ready to head off on some big adventures.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Since you are good at details and planning, this would be a perfect time to start getting down to business. Merely plan what you would like in the future and then start detailing how you are going to get where you want to go. A new love could also turn your life around and make you smile.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Life should be a merry-go-round right now. So try and keep it up by learning all you can from what is now taking place. The unexpected, the challenge and the payoff of hard work should be on your future agenda. What is needed now is some really hard work. Stay busy with your BFF.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) The demands of Saturn can sometimes be frustrating, but don’t let that take over your need to get things done. Sign no contracts, make no promises until the end of the month, but continue the hard work. It will pay off extremely well. All you need is patience and hard work.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) If you stay interested in your present lifestyle, you will find it a great change for you and all your pals. Your fascination with the new people in your life is good and will last just as long as you want it. So grant yourself the pleasure of making some good calls when it comes to your social life.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Avoid any rebellious nature that heads your way this week. You can’t afford to get out of line just now. So stay within the borders you have set for yourself and wait for the big pay off. Don’t isolate yourself, but don’t get lost in the nonsense of pals. Your money plans are going to work.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) You may be considering a move, but don’t make it until the end of the month. You can’t afford to rush into a new role without a total plan. You need to stick to your routine. Stop being so involved in the nonsense of others and stay with yours. Otherwise, things won’t work as well.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) If you forget about discipline, you will not meet your goals creatively or spiritually. So the answer is to spend some time alone and work on your ultimate goals. Remember, you are dealing with the planet Neptune and can easily get off course and into dreamland. That is not good.
