Born today, you are destined to be rather well-known -- but not necessarily for the reasons you might expect! You have several remarkable talents, and it may take you several years -- and several tries -- to determine just where those talents should lead you professionally. You know how to combine business and pleasure, and it's likely that you will enjoy your job far more than most others -- especially if you are allowed to follow your instincts and do things in your own way. You will surely follow the rules as you learn how to play; but once you know the ropes, you'll begin to make your own rules again and again.
You may have a strong and imposing personality, but the truth is that you are quite sensitive. You are far more likely to discuss things rationally with an opponent than fight aggressively or otherwise try to impose your will. You're a good sport, and you like to get along with others.
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, filmmaker; Rene Russo, actress; Lou Diamond Phillips, actor; Hal Holbrook, actor; Jerry O'Connell, actor; Mary Ann Mobley, former Miss America; Buddy Ryan, football coach; Alan Bates, actor; Barry Humphries, actor; Arthur Kennedy, actor.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A contest is likely to heat up between you and an unofficial rival. He or she certainly knows what buttons to push!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be working at peak efficiency, but you can still get everything done if you don't mind a little sloppiness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It may be more important to you to be on time rather than thorough, but both matter to the powers that be. Don't overlook any details.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone who is watching over you may be critical of your approach. There's no reason to make any changes just yet, however.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An influx of stimuli may have you itching to remove yourself from a certain situation or location, but that escape may not yet be possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are feeling things quite deeply right now, and others know it -- so take care you don't set yourself up to be wounded in any way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Don't be tempted to break with tradition; doing what is asked of you in the way that others have done it before is your ticket to success.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Pay close attention to the boundaries all around you, both physical and psychological. Gather information carefully.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Progress may have to be measured in very small increments, as you're not able to move at the pace that you had anticipated.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself complaining about the same situation again and again, but are you really trying to do anything about it?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may feel as though your creativity in a certain area has been dormant for a while -- but all that is going to change.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You shouldn't find it very difficult to put your best foot forward, whether in a social or purely professional situation.
