Daily horoscopes: February 5, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

Avoid getting dragged into turf wars because you’ll only lose if you do. Just tell everyone that you’re Switzerland.


(April 20 – May 20):

There’s nothing wrong with wanting the best in life as long as you don’t overreach. It’s a good idea to know what is (and isn’t) within your grasp.


(May 21 – June 20):

If it’s too good to be true than it probably is. That win/win proposition could turn out to be a Faustian bargain in disguise.


(June 21 – July 21):

You never react positively to people who get snooty, but condescension often masks a shy awkwardness. Cut an aloof type some slack.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

What do you say to a friend who keeps asking for favors as soon as s/he uses them up? The word you’re looking for is “no.”


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

It’s touchy discussing money with loved ones. But business is business. Make it all about the math and you’ll do fine.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

There are signs of trouble in a business venture. Put out feelers now. Getting this person to open and talk helps to minimize damage.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

You smelled a fish story and today your suspicions are confirmed. But do you have the heart to burst a loved one’s bubble? Some things are best left unsaid.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Get your head out of the clouds. It may seem unglamorous, but managing your day-to-day concerns builds a bridge to your dreams.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Take another look at what’s being offered. Yes, it’s not what you had hoped for, but it ain’t exactly shabby either.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You know that you will have to disappoint someone and dread the domino effect of one person telling another. But what can you do? Let the opinions fall where they may.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

You’re surprised to see that a colleague actually has a sense of humor. Hang out with him and you’ll discover hidden dimensions. This has all the makings of a future friendship.
