Born today, you are never one to be taken in by your own charisma or the power it grants you over others. This incudes both your considerable talents and the PR that is likely to result from (and to further) your pursuit of excellence in the professional arena. While you may be looked upon as something of a singular individual, capable in ways that others are not, deserving of rewards that others are not, you see yourself as rather ordinary -- or, at the very least, in a rather ordinary light. You never expect to receive anything on a silver platter; you understand that success is the result of inspiration and perspiration, and you're not one to wait for the world to come to you. Indeed, you always go after what you want.
You have a great deal of staying power. This is evident not only in your professional life, but in your personal affairs as well. It will surprise no one if you fall in love once, and only once, with that one perfect person with whom you can maintain a healthy, vibrant, lifelong relationship.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jordan, basketball player; Paris Hilton, actress; Bonnie Wright, actress; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, actor; Larry the Cable Guy, comedian; Denise Richards, model and actress; Jim Brown, football player; Jason Ritter, actor; Michael Bay, director; Rene Russo, actress; Lou Diamond Phillips, actor; Hal Holbrook, actor; Jerry O'Connell, actor; Mary Ann Mobley, actress and former Miss America; Buddy Ryan, football coach; Alan Bates, actor; Barry Humphries, actor; Arthur Kennedy, actor.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's certainly worth following up when a good idea comes your way. You are heading in the right direction.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If it's greater support you are after, you can surely have it, but you must know exactly what you need and how to ask for it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If everyone does what is required -- without having to be told again and again -- you will find yourself coming out on top.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can be much more productive, and you can spend more hours of the day coming up with creative plans and solutions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It may be hard for you to find what you are looking for. Find a good time to ask another to drop what he or she is doing and help.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're no nearer now than you were yesterday to that one special goal you have in your mind. Even so, the goal itself is much clearer to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself playing the role of a cheerleader as others look to you for the kind of moral support they don't get elsewhere.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What works for you is likely to work for most others, if only because you've been keeping their well-being in mind all along.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're waiting on someone else to come through with a detailed proposal. Once you have that in your hands, you can make a commitment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're nearing the finish line. Keep those you trust near at hand, as there will be some close work to do before the day is over.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may let much of the day slip by unused, but you can quickly catch up if you focus and demand of yourself unusual discipline.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're paying attention to the signs available to you, but you may not be absorbing all the information they carry. Look closer!
