Born today, you are something of a go-getter, but your real talent is for getting things started, as opposed to seeing them through.
The best career for you is one that allows you to dedicate all your strength, energy and skill for a finite period of time and then move on to something else that captures your interest. You can become bored quite easily -- with yourself and with the life you are leading at any given time -- and you need something new at almost regular intervals.
Some may think that you are simply inconstant, but this is a misunderstanding of the real issue: There is more going on with you than can be satisfied by a single career track.
You tend toward jealousy, and though this may seem like a negative trait, it is something that you will learn to use in a positive way as a kind of motivator: What you covet, you will work hard to win or earn.
Also born on this date are: Maura Tierney, actress; Morgan Fairchild, actress; Fran Tarkenton, football player; James Michener, author; Norman Rockwell, artist and illustrator; Gertrude Stein, writer and critic.
To see what is in store for you Monday, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph.
MONDAY, FEB. 4
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must let someone close to you know when you are out of sorts or you're not likely to get the comfort you need when you need it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't try to explain everything that happens today, or you'll simply get tangled up in seemingly conflicting details.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are waiting for someone to apologize who is, in fact, waiting for you to do the same. Perhaps it's time to let bygones be bygones!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can have a great deal of fun today while still getting things done that others are expecting. You admire someone new on the scene.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It may seem to you as though the various aspects of your day don't quite fit together. Indeed, there are some random elements to acknowledge!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will want to get all the facts before deciding on a course of action, for whatever you do will not be able to be undone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There are those who believe in what you are trying to do, and those who do not. Right now it might be difficult to tell who is who.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll get a great deal more done today if you will accept the fact that not everything can be done exactly as you had planned.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll surely have to make adjustments today to suit changing circumstances. You mustn't get stuck in your ways!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may want to be alone some of the time today, but you may not know how to arrange it. Don't let yourself get frustrated or defensive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will be in a position of some authority about a topic that others are just now starting to learn. Dispense information judiciously.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're wondering how you can recapture some of the wonder of the "good old days," when in fact you should be looking only forward.n
