Born today, you are not always the first to figure things out, but you do get there in the end -- as a result of steadfast commitment, an unwillingness to give up and an insistence that you be allowed to explore things freely and at your own pace so that you absorb information in the way that is best for you. Once you do grasp something, it is likely to stick with you forever; you're not the kind to forget things you shouldn't forget -- nor are you the kind to fill your mind with things that don't really matter! If you know it, it's worth knowing; if it's worth knowing and you don't yet know it, others can be sure that you will get yourself up to speed with current information in any way possible. You cannot abide being left in the dark about anything significant, while you couldn't care less about gossip and trivia.
When you find yourself in the driver's seat, you are dedicated to the agreed-on goal. You will work harder and longer than anyone to see things come out the way you have planned. When you are working in someone else's name, you are even more committed than usual. You like to combine old and new methods in ways that others never have.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Springer, talk show host; Peter Gabriel, singer-songwriter; Chuck Yeager, test pilot; Stockard Channing, actress; Peter Tork, guitarist and singer; Kim Novak, actress; Mena Suvari, actress; Oliver Reed, actor; George Segal, actor; Bess Truman, first lady; Carol Lynley, actress; Robbie Williams, singer.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can introduce a friend or loved one to something that he or she will take to very quickly. A big development may result.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- One step at a time gets you where you want to go. There's no reason to hurry yourself and risk committing a costly error.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are eager to see where a relatively new relationship may go -- but are you ready to admit your true feelings openly and honestly?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- How you view a developing situation says more about you than it does about the situation. Others may be reluctant to follow you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A look back allows you to track your recent progress, and that in turn will add value to the position you currently find yourself in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've got to take some time to assess a situation more honestly than you ever have. There's no room for self-deception.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Putting another's needs before your own allows you to achieve a rare balance between what works and what doesn't.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are eager to see what will happen if you don't follow the rules, but you don't want to be seen bucking convention. What's most important?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your travel plans may not jibe with another's anticipated activities. A willingness to compromise can surely save the day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can capitalize on an error made by someone who didn't know exactly what was at stake. Don't be a bad winner, however!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Things may not go according to plan, but you can still come out ahead if you're able to adjust quickly to changing circumstances.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're getting used to a situation that you don't like and can't change, but that's better than being upset about it day after day.
