Born today, you rarely if ever have trouble giving those things that interest you your wholehearted attention, for you always want to mine any topic for all its worth and understand it from all perspectives. You insist on understanding those who disagree with you, for only by doing so can you ever hope to counter their views effectively -- and that's something you are more than willing to do when given the chance.
Though you are never afraid to undertake something difficult on your own, you recognize the need, now and then, to surround yourself with those who match you in expertise.
Also born on this date are: Amber Riley, singer and actress; Galileo Galilei, physicist and astronomer; Chris Farley, comedian; Jesper Svensson, professional bowler; Matt Groening, cartoonist; Jane Seymour, actress; Susan B. Anthony, suffragette reformer.
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may wish to accompany someone on a journey that he or she is taking because there is no other choice. You can make a hardship much easier.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to make a personal discovery today that sets you off on a new adventure -- but you're not going to want to go alone.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The more you try to correct someone's behavior, the more frustrated you're likely to get with your own. It may be time to let it all go.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are making something much easier for someone than it should be. Is this a good thing? The answer comes to you very late in the day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may wish to adopt a new strategy before the day is out. You are desperate to find measures that will pay off sooner rather than later.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are in no mood to put up with someone's foolishness today -- and you had better say so! Wait too long, and you'll just have to bear it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to do something entirely on your own today, when you had originally expected to assemble an entire team to help you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone comes to you with an offer that seems irresistible -- until you think about it closely and see that you're at risk of being mistreated.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Now is the time to put your money where your mouth is, as the odds of excelling at a certain endeavor have perhaps never been better.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can give someone what he or she wants today -- but do it anonymously if you can. You find a new creative outlet late in the day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A lesson that you've been trying to teach clearly isn't getting through. You're going to have to try a new approach. Start today!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A bad habit is abandoned today -- possibly for good -- just as a good habit is adopted. What's with this new good behavior?
