Born today, you seem to know exactly where you are going, how you are going to get there, and when you will arrive -- right down to the minute! This is true not just in the symbolic, metaphoric sense, but often literally -- you try to live your life according to a strict timetable that you have constructed for yourself to maximize gains, minimize dangers and ensure for yourself both success and lasting contentment. You believe strongly in the notion that nothing good ever happened entirely by accident; you always want to be prepared for the next eventuality so that you can take full advantage of it when the time comes.
You are one of those modern individuals who maintain ties to the past that enable you to progress in a way that displays both continuity and tremendous originality. You spend a great deal of time looking at what has been done before so that you can do it your way, better -- and you usually do your ancestors very proud.
Also born on this date are: Dakota Fanning, actress; Emily Blunt, actress; Peter Fonda, actor; Kelly MacDonald, actress; George Frideric Handel, composer; Howard Jones, singer-songwriter; Victor Fleming, filmmaker.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Time is of the essence, and you can use it to your advantage or waste it entirely. There's no real middle ground right now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're keenly interested in what a younger family member is up to, and you may be able to lend a timely helping hand when things get tricky.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're going to want to address a certain issue in a direct, straightforward manner. "Head on" is the only way to proceed!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to go about your business without someone else trying to influence you against your will. Inner strength is key.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's important for you to understand the motives of those who do things very differently. You can learn a thing or two.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to face a good deal more adversity than you might have expected -- but you're equipped to deal with it, surely.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be tempted to change things around just to keep them fresh, but take care you don't actually create a puzzle for yourself.
