(February 1st) The Day of Willfulness
Strengths: Strong-Willed, Mentally Quick, Grounded
Weaknesses: Stubborn, Overly Rational, Self-Unaware
February 1 people are first and foremost distinguished by their strong earthy but mental nature. Not content with abstract speculations, those born on this day must impress their ideas on the minds of those around them. Headstrong, willful and courageous, they know when they are in the right and will not give one inch. As their mental preparation for most circumstances is thorough, and they have a facile, improvisatory flair, they are able to avoid compromising situations and sidestep any issues which they would rather not discuss. Thus they can make formidable opponents. A February 1 person is characteristically energetic and youthful, but often petulant like a child as well.
Emotional problems can plague February 1 people, particularly in their younger years. Their feelings are often scattered, impulsive and uncontrollable, and thus land them in trouble repeatedly. There seems to be a great divide between their mental solidity and their emotional vulnerability so that at times they are like two different individuals. Until they bring their great willpower to bear on their own inner processes, come to grips with their personal problems and begin to understand themselves, their lives will continue to be in turmoil.
More highly evolved February 1 individuals eventually integrate their many-sided talents into a well-functioning, polished persona -- but this takes time. Until they do, their careers may be highly unstable and they are apt to flounder. Others may watch them in confusion or bemusement and wonder why they haven't succeeded in doing more, despite their ambition.
In addition to their mental and emotional makeup, the sensuous physical side of February 1 people cries out to be fed, and this may cause additional problems if it is operating out of control. Of the qualities mentioned, in their personality hierarchy, the mental usually comes first, the sensuous second and the emotional third. The fourth important area (too often neglected), that of intuition, should be cultivated and relied on more as it can be the important cementing bond which pulls it all together for these talented but tumultuous individuals.
Part of the problem is that the power of reason and logic is so highly developed in February 1 people that it can crowd out their intuitive side. When reason at times breaks down, they tend to tumble into the feeling and physical realms, often resulting in emotional outbursts or self-indulgence.
For February 1 people it is not so much self-control that is wanted but self-understanding, and above all personality integration. Though sometimes obscured by their focus on matters at hand, being a whole and deeply feeling human being is the highest and most important aim for those born on this day, and ultimately takes them far beyond where mental drive and determination alone can.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 1st of the month are ruled by the number 1 and by the Sun. Those born on the 1st usually like to be first, are of a definite viewpoint and eager to rise to the top. The Sun symbolises strong creative energy and fire, which should be kept flowing steadily rather than allowed to flare out of control. When coupled with Uranus (ruler of Aquarius), the Sun's power influences can become restless and electric, making February 1 people high-strung and confused. Also, too much rejection in early and middle life can cause them to grow cold and aloof.
The 1st card of the Major Arcana is The Magician, who symbolises intellect, communication, information, as well as magic. Over his head is an infinity symbol, which in some Tarot decks takes the form of a hat, in others a halo. Many interpretations may be drawn, one of which is that the Magician recognises the cyclical and unending nature of life and is empowered by this understanding. The positive traits suggested by this first card include diplomatic skill and shrewdness but, negatively, lack of scruples and opportunism.
Those born on February 1 will generally experience many problems in their emotional life. Their intense emotions lead them into involvements from which it can be difficult or impossible to extricate themselves. These bright and quick individuals have to beware of using physical, sensual and sexual activities as a way of turning off their brains, essentially addictive and potentially damaging behaviour. Moderate, regular physical exercise (aerobics, jogging, swimming) is highly recommended. February 1 diets should shun excess sugar and the use of tobacco, which, though perhaps calming in the short term, only makes them more nervous in the long run. Grains, fresh vegetables, breads, hearty soups and stews are stable foods and work to keep them grounded.
Cultivate your intuitive powers. They are a natural resource. Try to be more patient and contemplative. Don't be too anxious to please lovers. Be your own boss.

Twice members transform into princesses
Twice appeared on the cover of Marie Claire fashion magazine’s August issue looking like Disney princesses.
The K-pop group recently released the song “Dance the Night Away.”
In the pictures released, each of the nine singers of Twice put on white laced dresses and pastel chiffon outfits.
Jihyo, Momo and Sana donned dresses with flower patterns. Dahyun and Chaeyoung flashed big smiles for the camera.
In an interview that accompanied the photo spread, Sana said she had participated in writing the lyrics for the song with Momo and Mina.
Jihyo shared how she had gotten a tan while shooting the music video for the track. Tzuyu and Nayeon said dance moves for the new song are especially fun because they include plenty of leg movements.
