Born today, you are an active, even aggressive individual who will jump at virtually any opportunity that arises, provided it is not too far-fetched, dangerous or unconventional. There is something a bit old-fashioned in your nature that keeps you from going too far out on a limb and doing things that others would find unacceptable. Fortunately, this is not likely to hold you back in any significant way -- though occasionally you may say "no" to something as a result, when in fact you should say "yes," if only for the fun or adventure of it. You know what you want, and when you know how to get it, you will stop at nothing to be satisfied.
Also born on this date are: Sheryl Crow, singer and songwriter; Jennifer Aniston, actress; Burt Reynolds, actor; Matt Lawrence, actor; Sergio Mendes, musician; Sidney Sheldon, author; Thomas Edison, inventor.
You cannot abide doing a thing simply because you are told to do it; in fact, you are not likely to respond well to any kind of "handling" by an authority figure. You want to figure out what to do on your own, then do it on your own and face the consequences -- good or bad -- on your own.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to adjust your technique today in order to suit another's personal taste. Don't do anything to go against the grain.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you have to offer is widely sought after, but you may not be ready to unveil your latest creation. Don't be hasty!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will have a hard time getting the kind of quick start you are eager for, but any attempt at forcing things will only work against you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have certain information that many others are eager to attain; are you ready and willing to share it -- or do you want some remuneration?
