Born today (Feb. 8), you are destined to achieve the highest level of recognition and status within your chosen career -- provided, of course, that you do not let yourself become derailed by brief distractions that promise only short-lived pleasure and excitement, not long-term reward. Indeed, this is likely to be the major conflict in your life: that between the transitory and the permanent, the trivial and the significant, the amusing and the rewarding. Time and again, you will come to a crossroads that offers the choice between immediate gratification and long-term satisfaction, and each will hold you in awe for a time.
You can be quite competitive, but you know that ultimately your most fierce rival will be yourself and your reputation. There may be times in which you would prefer to rest on your laurels, but your strength of spirit will see you making a better choice more often than not.
Today’s Aquarius Horoscope: You may have to work harder than expected before others believe what you claim to have up your sleeve and ready to go.
