Born today, you are not necessarily the kind of person to shine brightly of your own accord; indeed, you may often blend into the background and avoid being noticed at all! What you do require, however, is any number of special situations or circumstances that allow you to bring your natural talents and your character to bear in order to solve a problem, reverse a trend or lead others out of some kind of quagmire. Indeed, you are certain to be at your best in the worst possible situations! When the going gets tough, you are able to buckle down and do what is necessary, regardless of any personal sacrifice you may have to make or difficulties you may have to endure. You are patient, tenacious and always willing to see something through to the bitter end; you're not one to give up -- and you don't believe in the notion of the "lost cause."
You have a unique sense of humor that lets you see the world in a positive light when others are encountering only negatives. You are highly intelligent, and you are able to find valuable lessons in all manner of experiences. What others might call a failure you can call a success -- if it allows you to evolve in some way and come out ahead of where you were before, personally or intellectually.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not feel as though you are in sync with a friend or loved one, as you had hoped. Adjustments you make are only so effective.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't have to move any more quickly than usual today to get everything done and signed off ahead of schedule. Just keep moving forward.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in a position to do something others are unwilling to do. Don't think about it too much; just trust that you know what you're doing!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An understanding holds today. You don't have to talk about every pivotal issue; those working with you will surely understand your intentions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are tempted to say yes to a special request, but you must first look very closely at anticipated circumstances before committing.
