Born today, you are likely to be the object of either admiration or ridicule, depending on one's point of view. For many you are all that an upstanding, honorable and principled individual should be; to others, you may in fact be nothing short of an embarrassment. And why is this so? You are quite careful in thought and deed; you say or do nothing that has not been carefully considered ahead of time.
You have a quirky sense of humor, and you love nothing so much as a true story that makes other people laugh -- and the truth, to you, is often much funnier than any made-up tale! You're likely to do several things that are considered groundbreaking in your lifetime, and much that you work for in life will live long after you.
Also born on this date are: Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president; Robert Griffin III, football player; Charles Darwin, evolutionist and author; Christina Ricci, actress; Arsenio Hall, actor and talk show host.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An interchange between you and a rival highlights just how much you have to learn about each other. This may be just what you both need.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be acting in a way that is not at all in sync with your thoughts and feelings. You must be true to yourself in all things!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be afraid that a current setback is going to cost you much, but that's not the case. You'll surely be back in fine form very soon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not in charge of a certain situation today, and you must be willing to do things in a manner that pleases those who are. Cooperate!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Mistakes are going to be made today on all sides, but you can turn yours to your advantage if you are willing to accept responsibility.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to give the best possible first impression today -- but at the same time, you must give someone the benefit of the doubt.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must fool yourself no longer about someone who has been getting under your skin lately. Right now is not the time for such things!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must work hard today to preserve your reputation, especially as others are misinterpreting something you've recently said or done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must decide almost immediately today what is important to you and what is not -- and that decision may affect you for days to come.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What someone does mustn't be allowed to reflect poorly on you and what you have been doing. It's time to distance yourself, perhaps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Like it or not, you're going to have to follow the rules and perform up to par today if you're going to be recognized for accomplishment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not understand how someone is "judging" you at this time -- but whether or not you think it is fair, he or she is in charge for now.
