Daily horoscopes: February 2, 2018


(March 20 – April 19):

What you want is doable, but it won’t happen overnight.  Think of doing things in stages and you’ll improve your reach.


(April 20 – May 20):

You may be misreading terse responses.  Admittedly you’re not dealing with the most demonstrative kind of person, but a yes is still yes no matter how curt.


(May 21 – June 20):

Let rivals crow about their supposed triumphs because you’re on the inside track.  Weeks from now they’ll be the ones eating humble pie.


(June 21 – July 21):

Expect to spend a lot of time today untangling a snafu.  It would try anyone’s patience, but it still beats starting over.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Did you expect too much or was waiting for a response an unconscious form of procrastination?  In any case, the reins are handed back to you.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Before asking an intimate why s/he didn’t come to you in the first place, reflect on your recent availability.  People can only be kept waiting for so long.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

A vision of the way things could be does no good if you won’t act on it.  Even a stumble is a step in the right direction.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

In truth you don’t like having to play the heavy.  It’s emotionally draining and you have feelings too.  Nevertheless your no-nonsense way of putting things is sorely needed.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

A lover or spouse finally gets some good news.  What a relief!  There’s only so much Sturm und Drang you can take.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Usually you don’t back long shots, but someone’s heartfelt presentation is so impressive that you’re willing to make an exception this time.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

A newbie colleague reminds you of you at an earlier stage of the game.  Give the kind of guidance you wish that someone had shown you.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

There’s something to be said for out of sight, out of mind.  Too much thought to intangibles takes away from the things that matter.
