Born today, you enjoy reinventing yourself at almost regular intervals -- changing your behavior, your lifestyle, your environment or your profession so dramatically that those who know you may actually claim not to know you very well at all! What you are usually doing, however, is simply "cleansing" yourself and ensuring that you don't sink into a kind of thick, muddy rut of physical and mental malaise that is difficult to pull yourself out of. You enjoy the reactions of others when you unveil the "new you" -- though there may be times in which one individual or another is unwilling to go with your changes and chooses, instead, to distance himself or herself from what he or she thinks you have become.
You must always be ready to take advantage of unexpected opportunities when they arise -- and they usually do just after you have transformed yourself in some way. Many of these opportunities may involve financial gain -- or accelerated personal growth.
Also born on this date are: Paris Hilton, heiress; Jerry O'Connell, actor; Michael Jordan, basketball player; Rene Russo, actress; Alan Bates, actor; Hal Holbrook, actor; Arthur Kennedy, actor.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18
SAGTTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You know what is required today, you know how much time you have to accomplish it all, and your strategy is sound.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to be outplayed today by someone new on the scene. You'll be compelled to find out more about this "mystery man."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will have to adjust your thinking to be more in sync with those who are calling the shots today -- but this may be only temporary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can endure much more than any of your critics might suppose -- but fortunately the day is likely to ask little of you in this regard.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're getting used to the status quo, but you mustn't fall into the trap of thinking that this is how things will be forever. Change is coming.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be asking more of a friend than you know -- and he or she isn't likely to tell you that you've crossed a line. Be more perceptive.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be able to loosen things up and behave in a way that is more flexible and responsive. What another brings to you makes you smile.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't want your reactions to be out of proportion today, or others aren't likely to seek out your opinions for much longer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are feeling a bit more emotional about certain things today than you are used to -- but don't let your feelings get the better of you!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you start today, you're not going to be able to stop prematurely; you must be ready to see it through to the bitter end.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll find yourself engaged in a test of skill today -- but you may surprise yourself with how quickly you take to this activity.
