Born today, you are not one to turn your back on those in need, and this is likely to make you vulnerable to all manner of dangers, known and unknown, as you make your way through life. Adversity is nothing you fear, nor is it something that those under your care should fear, for you have a knack for minimizing hardships and for inspiring others to rise to even the most difficult occasions. The support you are likely to receive from those in professional circles may well be unmatched by anyone else born under your sign. You are capable of doing much by yourself, but you are wise enough to know that things can often be done better if you have help.
Some may call you dour and humorless, but the fact is that while you do take things more seriously than most at times, you are able to smile and laugh -- but not among those whom are only casual acquaintances. Your more lively, humorous side you tend to save for loved ones.
Also born on this date are: George Washington, first U.S. president; Drew Barrymore, actress; Steve Irwin, naturalist; Julius Erving, basketball player; Julie Walters, actress; Ted Kennedy, U.S. senator; Robert Young, actor; Thomas Jane, actor; Sparky Anderson, baseball manager; Sheldon Leonard, producer; Jonathan Demme, filmmaker; John Mills, actor; Michael Chang, tennis player.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to wait a little longer than usual today before getting the day's assignment from someone who is calling the shots.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are eager to work with a certain someone, but the opportunity may not arise until late in the day. You both are ready to make headway.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Though you may be feeling somewhat disconnected from those in your inner circle, you can still exchange important messages in a timely fashion.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's absolutely essential that you remember what your job is and how it fits into the grand scheme of things. Don't go off half-cocked!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be limited somewhat today by someone else's financial shortfall. This doesn't have to affect you in all things -- or for very long.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The events of the day remind you just how connected everything in your life currently is and how important that is to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Jealousy serves no purpose at this time and is best avoided at all costs. You were best to enjoy someone else's good fortune today!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be facing several choices today that are anything but ideal, but you can make the best of them if you maintain a positive attitude.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have more to offer than someone else is allowing right now. Today, you can maneuver yourself into a much more liberating situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be asked to withhold information today, but that's not your style, nor is it in anyone's best interest at this time. Share all!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can keep a minor disagreement from evolving into a major conflict today. A simple reminder to a friend keeps things civil all around.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're considering doing things in a different order today, but you must also consider how others will respond to a change in protocol.
