Born today, you are never one to shy away from responsibility, and in fact as you grow into maturity, you will discover that you actively seek it out far more than most individuals. You enjoy being the one that others look to for answers, decisions and plans. You have the makings of one who can lead others with care and wisdom, and you like the attention that being the "boss" garners you. What you don't always like, however, is the criticism that comes with being the one in charge -- but then, who does? And Aquarius natives are more likely than others to take criticism personally. Once you learn to let negative comments wash over you lightly, you will be much better off.
When young, you may not be the picture of self-confidence -- despite the fact that you have all the makings of a confident and capable individual. It is likely that one or two teachers, mentors or guides will enable you to embrace your own talents, traits and abilities and give you the confidence you will enjoy later in life.
Also born on this date are: Laura Dern, actress; Glenn Beck, political commentator; George Stephanopoulos, presidential adviser and journalist; Mark Spitz, Olympic swimmer; Roberta Flack, singer; Robert Wagner, actor; Leontyne Price, opera singer; Lon Chaney Jr., actor; Bertolt Brecht, playwright; Jimmy Durante, actor and singer; Boris Pasternak, author.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Things are nearing critical mass today, and you must be ready to deal with the reactions you get -- especially from critics.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will be coming to your senses today after a period of feeling disconnected in some way. A rational approach to a problem pans out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll find yourself dealing with someone else's problems today before your own; this is fine, as long as you don't neglect yours altogether.
