Born today, you have a fine sense of style, and your instinct for presenting yourself at the best possible advantage is perhaps second to none. That doesn't mean, of course, that style is always more impactful to you than substance; on the contrary, only when style is used in tandem with solid substance will you really enjoy the gains of which you feel you are deserving. You must take care to keep style and substance in balance, for if you allow yourself to become too colorful, you will find that much of what you are working for is actually rendered inaccessible to you.
You have the ability to sense when things are even slightly out of whack. You don't always know how to fix what is wrong, but when you do, you do so in a way that others are not often able to match. Indeed, in many ways you are quite inimitable -- though others often do try.

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.
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're eager to make changes that will lighten your load and allow you to be more nimble in almost all things.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The demands you've been making are not, in the main, realistic, and you know it. Perhaps you're merely trying to test someone?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take care that what you are doing doesn't come across as inappropriate to those who are trying to follow the rules a bit more closely than you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The messes that someone else is making right now can be easily cleaned up, but you shouldn't be the one to do it! You must draw the line.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to find a new outlet for increasing energy and a sudden surge in creative ideas. You may want to follow another's path for a while.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to work your way through several options today before you hit on the one that is just right for you and someone working with you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You should be able to see all obstacles today in time to do something to avoid them. Serious dangers should be few, but that can change quickly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You want everything to go according to plan today, but you may be trying too hard to establish "right" and "wrong" ways of getting things done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can stay on course throughout this rather difficult day. Others may look to you to lead them, and you can do so quite successfully.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You receive a warning that has you paying attention to all developments with renewed diligence. You can't afford an unlucky turn.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are pushing yourself to achieve something for which you may not be wholly ready. A little more learning and preparation are in order.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you're trying to do at this time rubs some others the wrong way, but not everyone. You can keep it up at least for the time being.
