Born today, you cannot always be counted on to make the best financial decisions, nor are you the one others will go to for advice regarding long-term planning. You are, however, quite adept at crisis management; you know how to stop a bad thing from getting worse, how to pinpoint the problem and how to solve it -- often permanently. Thus, while you may never boast a great deal of money in the bank, you will be proud of the fact that your life generally runs on an even keel, immune from the kinds of upsets that so often affect those around you. You never seem to let even the worst news get to you, and you approach sudden developments with a calm rationality that others admire greatly.
Some may think that you are simply uninterested or, worse, coldhearted, but neither of these is the case. You care greatly, and it is because of this that you maintain a steady, calm approach so that you can fix things that need to be fixed! To you, panic is the enemy, and calm is your greatest strength.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can save time and money by doing something the old-fashioned way, despite what someone close to you may say.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can make a big difference to your team. You are perhaps more prepared than ever before to lead a major effort.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can arrange a meeting of the minds that will result in a plan that can be put into motion almost immediately.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Stick to the game plan. If you feel the need to improvise, you should do so early or late, but not in the middle of things.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may encounter someone whose efforts are in stark contrast to your own -- or is it really just the motives that are different?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're in the mood for a change of pace, and you certainly don't want the pressure to increase in the workplace.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're feeling a little out of sorts, but perhaps this is part of a cycle that you are learning to anticipate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are committed to doing things the right way, even if it means changing the way you approach your primary responsibilities.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be feeling as if you're rowing against the tide lately. Indeed, some things are taking more effort than they should.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not yet be ready to assume another's responsibilities, but you know that day will come soon. You should begin preparing!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can offer someone a bargain he or she wasn't looking for, but you must make sure that you get something in return.
