Horoscopes for Feb. 5, 2014

By
From page B6 | February 05, 2014 |

Jupiter plays show and tell with his moons now. The Big Daddy is making his closest approach to Earth, with his face fully illuminated by the sun. The total number of moons orbiting Jupiter is still unknown, but of the 63 widely accepted luminaries, the four discovered by Galileo are the bright spots visible tonight.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your astral gift of the day is clear vision that helps you define your purpose so precisely that others can easily see it, understand it and know how they can help you with it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll stop working when the work is done and not a moment sooner or later than that. This is the secret to your success – an amazingly simple key, and yet few will do as you do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The cleverest of people are usually not trying to be clever at all; rather, they are trying to solve a problem. Your problem today will have to do with lightening the mood.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you feel positive, loving and kind, you’ll radiate the good vibes that have people gravitating toward you whether you want them to or not.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Those who most need your leadership will resist it. How frustrating. You only have their best interests at heart. Alas, you’ll have to find ways to be more influential. It’s just the excuse you needed to grow your charisma.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Take the time to figure out what you really want to do. Once you know this, you’ll feel better about everything else in your life. All will fall into place. Your conviction is something to admire, and admire it they will.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Hype and passion are not the same things, though they are often confused. Passion is about inner desire, not exterior motive. Hype tends to follow the money.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People whose lives are stressful sometimes use up all of their self-control in keeping it together. That doesn’t make them bad people. Those who are not as loving and patient as you may have good reasons.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When love is strong in you, as it is right now, you can forgive, and it’s not that big of a deal to do so, even if you have to forgive the same action over and over before the other person finally gets it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your preferences are different from what some people seem to think you ought to prefer, and that’s how you know they are true. Your heart doesn’t take a vote and move on consensus. It does what it does.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A Russian proverb says: “Don’t buy the house; buy the neighborhood.” You won’t be purchasing either today, and yet the saying applies to something you’ll buy that will align you with a particular group of people.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People say that the best things require work and are not produced in haste. However, sometimes what’s fast and easy is the glorious reward for all the laborious and failed efforts that came before.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You don’t have to have magical powers to spin straw into gold this year. Make the right deal, and do the work using the appropriate tools for the job. You may doubt yourself in March, but rush forward anyway and claim your riches. May and September will be the most romantic months. Family grows in June. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 1, 22, 8 and 17.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m trying to be more positive in the new year. January was pretty good, but now I think I’ve used up all of the positive vibes in my arsenal. I don’t know why I even made this stupid resolution, because I’m not positive by nature. In fact, I’m a pretty negative person, and I don’t see what’s wrong with that except that my wife tells me I’m no fun to be around. I’m a Leo with a Virgo moon. Any tricks for becoming a sunnier person like her?”

Sometimes people mistake a vigilant personality type for being negative. Just because you’re a realist and often see what could go wrong in a situation doesn’t make you negative per se. Virgo moon people are conscientious, and they put safety first. Also, they are independent and can easily see the reasons not to get connected and involved with people. These aren’t negative qualities; they are tools of preservation, and I’ll bet you also apply them to keeping your wife from harm and inconvenience. My advice is to be more positive about your negativity. Your opinions are valid. As for being more fun, just add humor. From W.C. Fields to Louis CK, comedy is filled with funny “negative” people.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo reached a 400-goal milestone for club and country last month. The footballer was born when the sun and Mercury were in Aquarius, favoring lightning-quick reflexes and natural grace. His Venus and Mars in Aries shows a warrior spirit and a fiercely competitive nature. His Leo moon lends charisma and showmanship.
