Born today, you enjoy working and playing with others and combining resources, energy and ideas to come up with something that is truly the collective product of everyone involved. However, you prefer coming up with ideas, and thinking through problems and doing whatever homework you may have to do entirely on your own. Then, and only then -- after you have devised a plan or come up with a winning idea -- will you want to share what you've been working on with other members of your team. So, in a sense, you enjoy the best of both worlds -- solitary work that leads to successful collaboration with others. You are never jealous of your ideas, however; you are willing to share almost everything you dream up with those working with you.
Pressure is not something you fear; on the contrary, you sometimes work best, and play best, under intense pressure. When you find yourself engaged in a close competition with a rival who tests your abilities on every level, you really shine. Indeed, that is the kind of thing you actually like best -- provided you don't feel completely outclassed.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll receive information about a big decision that will affect the course of your life for some time to come.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't take events too much to heart; a personal response can only make things more difficult -- and more misunderstood.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Avoid self-indulgence. Give another the chance to step forward and explain things in a way that comes from the heart. Caring matters!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to see things from any other point of view but your own, which may prove limiting for a time, but not always.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Obstacles that rise before you can be overcome or perhaps even avoided entirely if you have enough advance warning.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The choices you make that open the doors to more options are the ones for you. Now is no time to impose restrictions on yourself or others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A few unexpected changes may have you wondering what's next, but you should be able to regain your footing very quickly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Whatever answer you give, you'll want to give it in a confident, clear manner. Now is not the time for doubt or uncertainty.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If you are too concerned with being on the right side, it's almost certain that what you do will not be right for you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Are you asking too much of another? Of yourself? Perhaps a look at what has happened in recent days will make things clearer to you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must feed your mind, body and spirit -- and you can find a way, surely. Something you enjoy is more enjoyable than usual.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be in the mood you thought you would be in, and getting certain things done may prove difficult as a result.
