Born today, you make promises only after careful consideration of all the issues at play, for one simple reason: You insist on keeping your promises, come what may. Indeed, you will do all you can to protect the value of your word even when circumstances work against you, and you will weather all kinds of hardship as a result. There will be times, of course, that you are simply unable to keep a promise -- not because you do not want to or because you give up, but rather because the world around you conspires against you. Because you are so honorable, however, these few lapses are always understood and forgiven.
You are the kind to face problems head-on, and when it comes to personal issues you are never unwilling to talk about what is going on. Indeed, when others are too uncomfortable to talk about the most sensitive issues, you have a way of opening doors to honest communication.
Also born on this date are: Margaret Leighton, actress; Betty Hutton, actress; Erykah Badu, singer; Michael Bolton, singer; Johnny Cash, singer and songwriter; Tony Randall, actor and director; "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Western showman; Victor Hugo, author.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may discover that what was done only yesterday is likely to be ineffectual today. It's already time to think up some new moves.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have a way of putting things so that others understand what you're getting at without a lot of fuss or struggle. Keep it up!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may want to look another way today if what you see before you isn't to your liking. You can't get away from it -- but you can minimize it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have little to fear today if you stick to the path that has revealed itself to you. A journey into stranger territory can be dangerous.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may feel as though someone else has the advantage over you -- but later in the day you'll come into your own and show you mean business.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may want to choose a more difficult path for yourself today, just to prove to yourself -- and one other -- that you have what it takes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're trying to keep a secret from the wrong person! He or she is actually on your side, and can help you in your efforts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you do by yourself today can prove more important to you in the long run than any collaborative effort. Study a few new methods.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be surprised to learn that your standing has increased in the eyes of those who, only yesterday, were harsh critics.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Plans can be made today that will make a big difference to those who are in your care. Focus on that which can be done all at once.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are not making points with one who is asking you to do certain things in certain ways -- but you are asserting your independence, surely!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll have to think fast today in order to keep up with a rival who has, somehow, discovered your most vulnerable points.
