Born today, you are always the first person to get excited about your own ideas -- and why not? The fact is that you are always thinking up one plan after another that is, indeed, quite exciting and that could lead to great things -- provided, of course, you do not abandon it in favor of something else. This is, in fact, your greatest problem: You do not always follow through to see how far an idea might take you before you toss it aside to pursue another one that you have only recently concocted! You must learn to be patient, to see how far you can go with something before becoming disenchanted with it.
This short attention span can actually be a benefit at times, when you are applying yourself to a short-lived project that demands every ounce of your attention. Indeed, that is where you shine -- when it comes to doing things quickly, dramatically and effectively, you are rarely to be matched by anyone else.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Lautner, actor; Jennifer Aniston, actress; Brandy Norwood, actress and singer; Thomas Edison, inventor; Sheryl Crow, singer-songwriter; Burt Reynolds, actor; Sarah Palin, politician; Tina Louise, actress; Leslie Nielsen, actor; Damian Lewis, actor; Eva Gabor, actress; Max Baer, boxer and actor; Sidney Sheldon, writer; Sergio Mendes, bandleader.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you're not willing to acknowledge the truth, you're sure to lose your advantage and fall behind. Catching up will take time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your natural idealism may be threatened when circumstances conspire against you in a way you never expected. Hold your ground!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone close to you may give you more than one reason to break with tradition and go your own way. This isn't goodbye, however.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll get what you want, but at a cost. You cannot change the fact that certain things are taken from you even as others are given.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're feeling a certain temptation, but you really cannot afford to give in -- as that road can surely lead to personal danger.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your imaginative approach to routine issues not only makes them more important, but it also makes the solutions more exciting.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Avoid taking any path that you cannot see clearly. That which is hidden may present dangers you are not equipped to address.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You mustn't allow anyone to control you beyond the limits of his or her authority. You may have to take a stand and rebel.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You won't get anywhere doing things the easy way. Focus on the goals you have set for yourself -- and for others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll get a quick glimpse of the future, but before you are able to grasp it, you must address a current domestic situation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're sure to get a favorable response from most who take in what you have to offer -- but one stubborn critic may make things difficult.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Not everyone knows what you're up to, but someone who has been by your side from the beginning trusts that you are on the right track.
