Born today, you have been blessed with a quiet, easy manner and the ability to calm things when others seem determined to let them spiral out of control. You are keenly intelligent and full of common sense; this combination is sure to make you someone to contend with in any contest of wits. You have what it takes to climb to the very pinnacle of your chosen profession in a way that attracts little attention but commands respect. You are quite creative, and yet you do not have what is commonly called an "artistic temperament," in large part because you are able to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, even when you are pursuing lofty ambitions.
It is likely that you will score more than two or three important "firsts" in your lifetime. It may be anyone's guess, however, where you will ultimately find your greatest contentment, for you are drawn to many different kinds of endeavors.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can help someone work through quite a conundrum as long as you don't get swept up in the confusion yourself! Put your best foot forward.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You realize quite suddenly that you're doing something that someone has warned you against, but is that really a good reason to stop?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- That which is preferable to you may not be within reach until you do something rather unusual. Take care you don't run afoul of the law!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You don't want to reveal too much too soon. Something that has been locked away for quite some time is revealed to you at last. Enjoy!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may do your best thinking in a situation that usually doesn't allow for careful cogitation, but you have a new way to focus yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to see yourself as others see you today, for that perspective will answer several questions that you have about your current state.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something begins today that you're not going to want to see end until it has run its course. Take care that you don't make any early errors.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can offer forgiveness to someone who is unwilling to give it to him- or herself. You know that it's time to move on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are eager to see what's going on behind the scenes today, but take care you don't overanalyze that which is really straightforward.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are likely to receive help from a surprising source. You may have to keep some information close to the vest -- at least for now.
