Born today, you aren't likely to be remembered for only one accomplishment in your life, for your interests and talents are sure to lead you in many different directions, often at the same time. You will therefore be able to score all manner of different successes in both your personal life and your professional endeavors. You can be fiercely competitive, and you have been known to have a good old-fashioned tantrum if you don't come out on top, but this is because you know that you haven't done your best, not because you think someone else hasn't been good enough to beat you. Indeed, you are nothing if not realistic about talent -- your own, and other people's.
You can, at times, let pride get in your way, particularly where affairs of the heart are concerned. You do not recover quickly from having your heart broken, but fortunately, it's not likely to happen very often. Why? Because you are more likely to break hearts yourself!
Also born on this date are: Seth Green, actor; James Dean, actor; Gary Coleman, actor; John Williams, composer; Nick Nolte, actor; Lana Turner, actress; Jack Lemmon, actor; John Grisham, novelist; Audrey Meadows, actress; Jules Verne, science fiction author; Mary Steenburgen, actress; Ted Koppel, journalist; Mary McCormack, actress; William T. Sherman, U.S. military leader; Robert Klein, comedian and actor; Henry Czerny, actor.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have the chance to score an important "first," though the competition will be fierce and you must be on your game!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take things easily, one at a time, and don't be tempted to bite off more than you can chew. A conservative approach is perhaps best.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be frustrated by those who are not following your instructions, but perhaps those instructions are not as clear as they might be.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll realize that what is happening is far more important to you than expected -- and you'll appreciate it all the more.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Give yourself a little more time to get things done, as you may encounter one or two roadblocks that you have, in fact, set up yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- This is a good day to recognize, study and break a habit that you have determined is a bad one.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have more to do with another's personal affairs than usual. He or she may be of two minds about how you are "helping."
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not appreciate the significance of a certain event that transpires between you and a loved one until night falls.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's a good day to assess your current standing and determine not only which way to go from here, but how best to start out.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be pulled in more than one direction at once, but a trusted friend will help you maintain your equilibrium in nearly all things.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll receive some messages from those whom you have touched in recent days or weeks. One in particular strikes you in a special way.
