Born today, you seem to know exactly what is needed by those around you, and you will parlay this natural ability into a life achievement that may well be remembered long after you have shuffled off this mortal coil. Indeed, not just that achievement, but your very life is likely to prove inspirational to many; the question, of course, is why. You have been endowed with tremendous intellectual ability, physical strength and stamina, a knack for figuring out even the most complicated of problems, and an affinity for those issues that are most important to everyone -- but none of these taken individually sets you apart. Rather, it is the combination of them all -- that unique blend that makes up you -- that is truly special.
You may be subject to rather dramatic mood swings throughout your lifetime, but you will learn how to ride them out and emerge stronger and wiser at the other end. This doesn't mean, of course, that they won't be difficult to endure -- on the contrary -- but endurance is one of your greatest natural talents.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There is a considerable risk of being guided down the wrong path. You have the ability to steer your own course if not distracted.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to be asked many questions by someone who trusts that you're in the know -- and so you are, but not in every way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're in need of something new in your life, and you may stumble across the very thing that suits you best. Satisfaction is imminent.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're nearing a major goal, but you may be slowed by several conflicting emotions. You should have just enough time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The elements will have a major influence over you, especially if you find yourself far from home. This needn't have negative connotations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can do much that wins you the support of those who are looking for someone or something to support. You fit the bill in many ways.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're more interested in saving than spending, but it may be difficult, if not impossible. It's time to concoct a plan.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The only thing that seems to be going your way is likely to take a wrong turn late in the day -- but this can be a surprise benefit!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your understanding of the way things have been in the past will help you make the right decisions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The work you are trying to do with a partner may not be possible as you have conceived it. Some changes will have to be made on paper.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Anticipation is your single greatest tool. What others do will affect you a great deal -- and a great deal more if not foreseen.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your awareness of another's feelings is likely to exceed the norm. He or she will be grateful for the unspoken support.
