Born today, you aren't always one to be followed, for you may well lead others down the wrong road. This is the result of your willingness to give things a try without making so much as the most rudimentary plan. You will often charge into things without thinking one bit, which may be good for you, but not for other people! When you have others under your care, you must always strive to be a bit more circumspect as you go through your day.
You don't go after something because you think it is within reach; you go after it because you want it, whether it is within reach or not. Indeed, you are often more likely to go after something that is not at all available to you because you like to prove that you can do anything if you work hard enough.
Also born on this date are: Seth Green, actor; James Dean, actor; Gary Coleman, actor; John Williams, composer and conductor; Nick Nolte, actor; Lana Turner, actress; Jack Lemmon, actor; John Grisham, novelist; Audrey Meadows, actress; Jules Verne, author; Mary Steenburgen, actress; Ted Koppel, newsman; Mary McCormack, actress; William T. Sherman, U.S. general; Robert Klein, comedian.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is not the time to insist on doing things your way; indeed, you are best to let someone else call the shots, at least temporarily.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know that you are right for a certain job, but not everyone thinks so. Take the time today to assemble the best case in your favor.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not always be the best at proving your point; you'd rather let your actions speak for you. Today, however, you must be persuasive.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Wherever you go today, you're likely to encounter those who have adopted a very different mindset from your own. This is no setback!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It shouldn't take much for you to put your best foot forward today; you are shining brightly, and others are surely taking notice.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to wait longer than expected for a meeting that sets the tone for what lies ahead. Use the time to prepare for all contingencies.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are not as interested in a current project as you were only a short time ago, perhaps. Today, you can devise a new and exciting plan.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- While one of your "pet" ideas was applicable a while ago, today it is much more important -- and it's likely to get the support it deserves.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't be afraid of random developments today; indeed, you can use them to your advantage, especially when dealing with a rival.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must keep your cool when things transpire in a way that is very different from what you were led to expect. Things change -- and so be it!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be willing to do a little legwork today before getting down to business with someone who knows the ropes better than you do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to work harder than usual today to convince someone that a project you've devised is worth the time and money it will require.
