Born today, you have a positive outlook and a good-natured way of coping with stress, obstacles and adversity. You take the good with the bad, focus on what you can learn from virtually any negative development or situation, and you never seem to panic. Of course, much of this is simply a cultivated way of displaying to the world that you are strong and confident. The truth is that beneath the surface, you may be crying for help, certain that you will fail, and fearing the worst -- but you'll never let anyone see that, except perhaps those with whom you are most intimate. Even when you do fall, you are quick to get over it and rise again.
You are able to spot opportunities everywhere and anywhere, and far more than others born under your sign, you are able to remain positive and confident even when there are no opportunities to explore at the time. Why? Because you know that tomorrow is just around the corner -- and with it, more opportunities!
Also born on this date are: Justine Bateman, actress; Merle Oberon, actress; Lee Marvin, actor; Seal, singer; Jeff Daniels, actor; Nicolaus Copernicus, astronomer; Prince Andrew of Great Britain.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The position you find yourself in today may require you to follow someone else's rules to the letter -- and some may seem a little odd.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- After a good deal of back and forth, you and another are likely to come to an agreement today that works for both parties.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll require some more information today before setting off on a journey of discovery. You are emotionally ready, however.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Putting your best foot forward today should not be difficult -- though you may not always get the reaction you were expecting.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to explain yourself more than once today before you get the go-ahead for a plan that you've been working on for quite some time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be surprised to learn that someone else has been working on the very same "surprise" project. Perhaps you can work together?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The best thing you can do for yourself today is to entrust a certain friend with the bulk of the time-sensitive work that remains to be done.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can pick up the pace today and challenge your closest rival in a new and spectacular way. All your plans are coming together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You know what it takes to get certain things done today, but you may have to interpret the rules in a rather creative fashion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The news you have been waiting for is likely to come your way today -- though from an unexpected and perhaps highly unusual source.
