Born today, you are one of the most charismatic individuals born under your sign. This can be a liability at times, when those who do not fall under your spell begin to examine the substance that lies beneath the surface and question your ability to go beyond charisma and provide something more tangible and valuable. The truth is that charm is but one of your gifts; you have been endowed with tremendous abilities, a healthy dose of ambition and the will to put ambition and ability together to produce results. You can be rather inward in your thinking -- sometimes, when you are mulling things over and making plans, you may even withdraw from the society of those who know you best and to whom you are closest -- but you will always emerge once again to brighten the lives of everyone around you.
You can be highly emotional, but you will no doubt become quite adept at channeling your passions into work that will be considered valuable by a great many others. You are determined to make your mark and be seen in a positive light, both professionally and personally.
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Taylor, actress; Josh Groban, singer; Chelsea Clinton, journalist; John Steinbeck, author; Joanne Woodward, actress; Timothy Spall, actor; Ralph Nader, consumer advocate; Howard Hesseman, actor; Kate Mara, actress; Noah Emmerich, actor.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The decisions you make can benefit others directly or indirectly. How you follow through will make all the difference.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to respond very quickly to a rare kind of emergency. Do what you can to keep your emotions out of the equation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you must do can only be done today, and you're not likely to get another chance. Make sure everyone around you understands this.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have the chance to revisit something from your past that made a big difference at the time; it can have a huge impact yet again.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are willing to do more than planned, but not everyone around you will want to do the same. You need to work toward a consensus.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone may recommend something you know to be dangerous, but you recognize that it is also likely to prove necessary.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It may be time for explanations. Are you ready to reveal everything you have up your sleeve? Others will hang on your every word.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to remind one or two of your subordinates just who is in charge -- and then immediately prove it your inimitable way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- One bold step will have you gaining both supporters and critics at the same time. You won't be able to do anything on the sly anymore!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can do much to maximize your chances, but while the odds are better, you must still raise the bar where performance is concerned.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Not everyone will agree with you about the methods you are ready to employ, but no one will object to your reasons. Tensions may run high.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've been advised to speak your mind, but you must remember that not everyone is ready to hear what you have to say. Control yourself!
