Born today, you are far quieter than others may expect you to be, for you rarely feel the need to talk when there are things to do. For you, actions always speak louder than words -- and your actions usually speak volumes! When you get down to business, others know that something remarkable is likely to result, and the fruits of your efforts -- whether immediately or over the long term -- are sure to be enjoyed by everyone who comes in contact with what you have to offer. You know how to use words well, but you use them in new ways, spinning new meanings from familiar terms and phrases, to shed new light on timeless issues and persistent problems.
When given the chance, you will generally opt to give someone else a helping hand, often arriving on the scene just in time to make the difference between success and failure -- or even life and death. It is likely you will travel over much of the globe, and in your travels, you will become close with many people from all walks of life.
Also born on this date are: George Harrison, musician and singer; Sean Astin, actor; Chelsea Handler, comedian and television personality; Tea Leoni, actress; Jim Backus, actor; Nancy O'Dell, television host; Pierre-Auguste Renoir, painter; Anthony Burgess, writer; Sally Jessy Raphael, talk show host; Enrico Caruso, operatic tenor; Rashida Jones, actress.
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.
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find yourself remembering things from your past that inform your present endeavors. There is more at play than mere nostalgia.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have much to accomplish, and limited time in which to get it all done. You may choose to take an unusual, daring approach.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The view from where you are may not give you all the info you really need, but it's certainly worth appreciating -- for a while at least.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You seem to know something that others do not, and that is likely to give you an important advantage, either personally or professionally.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- As you pick up speed, you'll find yourself facing a choice that could be dangerous if you don't take all available precautions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can progress according to plan, but keep your eyes open for an opportunity that is neither expected nor wholly understood.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your interpretation of events is likely to be quite different from the official version. You're confident that you're correct.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've set a trap of sorts for someone else, but you may find yourself coming perilously close to being caught in it yourself!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The advice you get from a friend who has "been there, done that" is likely to open your eyes to a choice you haven't yet considered.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't want to be dismissive of another's plight, but you have so much to do yourself that you cannot be completely attentive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You know just what you have to get done and how long it is likely to take. That knowledge enables you to position yourself well.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're after something that is just out of reach, but perhaps you can extend that reach just a little further than usual.
