Born today, you can be a little racy at times, doing or saying things that can take the more conservative among your acquaintance by surprise and create quite a commotion for some time! You are likely to cultivate this as a skill that you can rely on to see you through some difficult times. Your manner can be quite disarming, though never so off-putting that others turn away from you for good. You know how to make friends quickly, and you can turn a critic into an admirer with a look or a turn of phrase. How you behave, what you say and the manner in which you go about your business -- particularly in the professional arena -- are all irresistible to many.
You enjoy being rather domestic at times, and you will surround yourself with much that you like in your own home. You want your home to be comfortable on the one hand, and quickly identifiable as "yours" on the other; you never want anyone to forget that he or she is in the presence of one who really knows himself or herself.
Also born on this date are: John McEnroe, tennis player and commentator; Ice-T, actor and rapper; LeVar Burton, actor; Sonny Bono, singer and congressman; Edgar Bergen, ventriloquist.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can shed light on an issue that has stumped those around you for some time. But don't give them the answer outright!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is not the time to brag about something with which others will find fault. You're not yet an expert; you have a lot to learn.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- "The readiness is all," or so the Bard said -- and today you'll understand just what that means, and how it affects your every move.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't make the mistake of thinking that you can do whatever you choose today; you'll have to stick to certain inflexible rules.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to try doing two or three particular things at once -- but they must be the kinds of things that go together organically!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't be so keen on reaching a certain goal today that you fail to see the importance of things you encounter along the way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to go around and try something again and again today before you get it right. The learning process is valuable, surely.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are not looking forward to doing something that you have been assigned today -- but you're more ready than you think.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've avoided tackling a certain task long enough; today's the day to make a start -- and you can do so with confidence.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be fully appreciated by others today, but that doesn't mean you won't be satisfied with your own work.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- An argument may be somewhat one-sided today, but you should prevail if you stay the course and put trust in your past experience.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must take the time to review things carefully today before you put a new plan into motion. Unforeseen circumstances are influential.
