Check Out Polls, Candidates' Horoscopes, Betting Lines And Surrounding Weather For February 1

Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines. Our HuffPollstrology chart helps keep you up to date on the latest poll results, along with the latest horoscope predictions, and the latest online political betting lines - and will hopefully help the polling junkies in the media keep polls in the proper perspective.

What you uncover - whether it be fact or item - cold leave you feeling richer than in some time. Of course this could be anything from the depth of someone's feelings for you to knowledge and understanding. The mystical side of today's special cosmic events could put you on a different kind of high. Don't be surprised if others are attracted to your apparent wisdom - and if you're asked for special favours as a result.

Venus and Jupiter align for the first time in Capricorn for over a decade. OK, that's not your sign - but you should still feel some effect. There is a danger for you: and that can be summed up in one word - EXCESS. Before your diet goes wild and/or you spend more than you should on what are thought to be essential items, you could give thought to the long-term consequences of your actions..

Venus and Jupiter align in Capricorn for the first time in over a decade. Coinciding with Pluto's recent entry into that sign, this is BIG news. This alignment takes place in the creative or heart centre of your solar chart. If you're old enough to have children, then romantic events in their lives could affect you. Your own love-life could experience an exciting twist too. And at a different level you may find that a talent has been recognised - and could even become a second revenue stream.

You could be given 'top table' treatment. Something about you could give others the impression that you need to be looked after better. It may be that they see you as a 'lucky charm' too! A shopping trip could turn into something of an extravaganza. And then, quite separately, there's the prospect of celebrating a relative's success.
