Born today, you come across as quite forceful and may cultivate a rather stern and even frightening demeanor, and yet you can actually be quite meek at times -- and your sentimentality and emotional nature are well-known to those close to you. Indeed, the emotional currents that run beneath your "rough and tough" exterior are likely the very reason you do what you do, and you are quite adept at using your emotional energy in creative ways.
You are confident and capable, but you are not as strong as you may think you are, and you are vulnerable to illness and injury -- so you must always protect yourself by thinking ahead, taking precautions, eating right and getting the rest you need.
Also born on this date are: Joe Pesci, actor; Carole King, singer and songwriter; Travis Tritt, singer; Mia Farrow, actress; Alice Walker, author; William Henry Harrison, U.S. president; Brendan Behan, Irish poet and playwright.
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.
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can spend a good deal of time talking over old times with a friend -- but soon you'll have to acknowledge the elephant in the room.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A favor you do for someone is actually one you do for yourself, as you're likely to benefit in ways that really make a difference for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're going to have to get certain things done before you turn your mind to the one thing you most want to do. It's a matter of priority.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your preparations are sure to be quite thorough, but you may not know quite what is going to happen when you do what you are preparing for.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Focus on what is going on in the background in order to come to a much more thorough understanding of what is happening right in front of you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Share your thoughts with those who support you, as any attempt to persuade those who have made up their minds against you will not go well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must take care of yourself in ways that matter only to you. No one else is likely to give you what you really need at this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can turn a bleak picture into something much brighter and more radiant today -- and others will gladly adopt this positive outlook.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to remind those in charge that you never promised to do the impossible. What you've done to date must be good enough.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are in a far better position right now than you had any reason to expect. You have yourself to thank -- and a friend behind the scenes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Dispensing compliments cannot be expected to do for you what you really wish -- but it's still a matter of courtesy and will be appreciated.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to back out of a current project and let someone take your place. It's time to start working on something more personal.
