Horoscopes for Feb. 6, 2014

From page A9 | February 06, 2014 | Leave Comment

The first Mercury retrograde of the year occurs in Pisces, the sign of old souls and psychic information. Neptune, the planet of dreams, is also in Pisces and is streaming creative inspiration to us from this part of the sky. The red-tape obstacles and mishaps that commonly happen during a Mercury retrograde can be overcome with imagination.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your success lies in realizing how foolish it is to try to obtain talents you don’t naturally possess when you could be using your time and energy to polish the ones you do possess.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do what you can, and don’t bother with what you don’t believe in. You are not underestimating your talents by refraining from doing certain tasks. Your inner wisdom dictates that some things are simply not worth doing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Regarding a creative project, the end is not in sight, and so you’ll have to keep it in your mind. Rest assured, you are further along than you think you are. Don’t give up now!

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Success will depend on the verbal connections you make. Be forthcoming with excellent topics. Make it easy for other people to talk with you. You’ll need a dozen high-quality topics at the ready.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The one you love needs to be able to mix and mingle with your other loved ones. Such an effort is one way a person can show devotion, and you will appreciate this. The one who doesn’t make this effort isn’t doing enough for you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There was a time when you didn’t know how to brush your own teeth, and the person who did that for you taught you how to do it. Now you’ll take on a daunting task that will soon become as automatic, habitual and easy as brushing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The Greek goddess Charis was beautiful and charitable by nature. From her name comes the word “charisma,” which is the quality you possess in great quantity now and will apply generously to help out a friend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Define your vision and purpose. If you leave it to chance, human nature will take over to help you serve selfish purposes. Think it through first, and you’ll come up with the best plan.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A tendency of humans is to rate their skills and traits as better than they actually are. But a person who can’t admit fault or weakness is unlikely to improve. The cosmic gift you embrace now is a realistic self-perception.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re ready to take a project to the next level, but you have to get more people on board to make this happen. Jump into the social swirl and charm them. If you don’t, someone else will.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Relationships will improve with better organization. You’ll carve out time to give your undivided attention to a loved one, and the connection you feel will make both of you stronger.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll lay the groundwork for a landmark agreement. This is not the time to commit or make a decision. This is the time to put your feelers out and explore what is possible.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re both tough and mature. You take criticism well without getting offended, and because of this, you will improve in every area of your life. The right mentors and role models are key. Your best months for love and relationships are now, May and December. Big financial opportunities come in March and October. Capricorn and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 18, 24, 13, 7 and 9.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I want a house; my wife doesn’t. She’s 15 years older than me and has a grown child. She says she’s already taken care of her share of houses in her life, and she would rather live in a small apartment and not have the work that comes with a big property. But I’ve never owned a house. I was brought up with the idea that after a man makes a certain amount of money, he should buy a house and settle in. What advice do you have for a Capricorn married to an apartment-dwelling Virgo?”

Don’t stress – two earth signs should be able to work this one out. You both benefit from the stability that comes from ownership. What your Virgo wife is afraid of isn’t the house, but the housework. She thinks it’s likely to fall under her realm of responsibility, and statistically speaking, she’s right. This is your chance to prove to her how handy and conscientious you can be. Are you neat and tidy? Do you take care of business? Prove it by detailing her car, building her a shelf or taking over the cooking and cleaning for a long string of days. And start shopping. The right house is likely to change her mind.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: From his love life to his Twitter feed, Ashton Kutcher’s highly publicized life keeps fans hanging in suspense. What will happen next? One thing is certain: This Aquarius actor will continue to make unusual choices; his sign can’t help it! Aquarians see the world differently and act accordingly.
