Born today, you are perhaps the most sensitive individual born under your sign, and yet this is certainly not something that you put on display or let other people know as a matter of course -- for the very good reason that you fear being taken advantage of by those who see your brand of sensitivity as a weakness or vulnerability. The truth is that you are stronger than most because you can feel more than most, and that is perfectly all right with you.
The things you do best you do with a kind of dramatic flair that is the envy of all those who would also like to be good at those very things, and as a result, you will be highly imitated -- though not successfully by anyone.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jordan, basketball player; Bonnie Wright, actress; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, actor; Larry the Cable Guy, comedian; Denise Richards, model and actress; Rene Russo, actress.
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may need a tutorial of sorts to understand all that is required of you today. What you do after dark surprises many -- including yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You risk failure if you are unwilling to share what you are attempting with those who can assist you in unique ways. Don't be secretive today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're ready to play a game with higher stakes -- but take care that you don't pull someone along with you who doesn't want to play!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The benefits of all you are doing will be clear very soon, but today you'll simply be acting on faith. Others very much want you to succeed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be rewarded today in ways that surprise you -- though you are expecting some kind of recognition at least, for something uniquely your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a good day for finalizing plans and getting others to jump on board. You can't do it all alone, and it certainly needs to be done!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be tempted to try something a bit out of the ordinary today where your own personal business is concerned. Memory serves you well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Those who are willing to go the distance with you today will benefit from all you bring to what you do. New attachments may prove permanent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- You may feel as though others are more equipped than you are to face today's challenges, but you'll surprise yourself -- and everyone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're ready to put things in order so that progress can be made more swiftly in the days to come -- but a challenge must be addressed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Much will revolve around the kinds of business you get up to today. Others will seek a way around certain obstacles -- but not you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- That which comes naturally will be less attractive to you today than that which requires some study and training. You want a challenge!
