Born today, you aren't the kind to be fooled by the people around you, for you are so adept at sizing them up that you always seem to know what they are likely to do. This "sixth sense" is sure to serve you well in both your personal life and professional affairs. You are always nimble and flexible, able to change course quickly when a situation requires it, and yet at the same time you can dedicate yourself to a single line of endeavor over the long haul. You cannot abide deception of any kind, and you have been known to sever ties with those who have tried to put one over on you.
You are never quick to make decisions, though you can make progress more swiftly than most simply because you maintain a healthy pace in all matters. You insist on being in control and maintaining your independence in all things -- which may, of course, make settling down rather unlikely!
Also born on this date are: Ice-T, actor and rapper; John Schlesinger, director; Vera-Ellen, dancer; John McEnroe, tennis player and commentator; Sonny Bono, singer and politician; LeVar Burton, actor; Hugh Beaumont, actor; William Katt, actor; James Ingram, singer; Edgar Bergen, ventriloquist; Margaux Hemingway, model and 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.
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be sure to read the fine print and any other warnings made available to you before you jump into a quickly developing situation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It will be up to you to listen to reason today when someone tries to warn you of a coming danger; others may not pay attention at all!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can avoid the "formal" today and get a great deal done with a more casual, easygoing approach. You won't have to hide the truth, surely.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be acting in a way that confuses those who are regulars in your inner circle. Explanations, while not required, can be helpful.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may feel that you are ready to make an announcement that others have been waiting for, but you must take care that you are in no way premature.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- That which was easy yesterday is likely to prove unusually difficult today -- and vice versa. Don't lose track of who is doing what!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- This is a good day to forge a partnership with someone of whom you have been rather suspicious in the past. Such issues amount to nothing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've been trying to keep things aboveboard at all times, but someone close to you has been working against you. You must find out why.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- For quite a while you've been dancing around an issue that has been a big headache for your allies. Today you must jump in!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The difference between what might be and what already is can be made much clearer today -- and you'll be the one to get the message across.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to react very quickly today to a surprise decision made by someone who is nominally in charge. Can you reverse this call?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The "what" and the "how" may be quite clear today, but the "when" and the "why" may be hard to discern. The "who" can provide missing info.
