Daily horoscopes: February 2, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

Lighten up on a loved one. This person’s trying to turn over a new leaf and changes in foliage don’t happen overnight.


(April 20 – May 20):

Don’t look to status symbols for validation. You’re surrounded by loved ones and friends and nothing could be richer than that.


(May 21 – June 20):

Yesterday’s story doesn’t gibe with today’s version. Investigate the inconsistency because somebody’s glossing over the facts.


(June 21 – July 21):

Put away personal things or risk a curious child or a frolicsome pet parading them around for public view.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

You may think a family matter is settled but it isn’t. Listen to gripes with fresh ears because they’re not completely unfounded


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

A critical relative or in-law makes a reappearance. But don’t go on the defensive. This person needs your help and herein lies your chance to change the relationship.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Don’t let yourself get drawn into a conflict. Wait a few days and you’ll see an opponent’s campaign fold like a house of cards.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You don’t like massaging egos, but they’re in a position to do a lot for you. Rub their backs and they’ll rub yours.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

This isn’t the time to try to pull a fast one. Not with the Moon in Sagittarius. People can see what’s coming from miles away so be upfront.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

An acquaintance panics and goes on the attack. Be the bigger person and ignore it. This person will soon realize he was out of line and will want to make it up to you.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You’d love to let bygones be bygones but people keep scratching at the same old wounds. Keep changing the topic of conversation and they’ll eventually get the hint.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Things have to unravel before they can come together. Put your trust in the planets because there really is an intelligent design at work.
