Born today, you are often the person who holds things together, who makes things happen, who takes care of other people and who promotes the very ideas that make the world a better place. You are hardworking, highly principled and always willing to take steps that others are unwilling to take to see the "right" things happen -- and, at times, the "wrong" people put in their right place!
Also born on this date are: Elizabeth Taylor, actress; Josh Groban, singer; Chelsea Clinton, author and health advocate; John Steinbeck, author; Joanne Woodward, actress; Timothy Spall, actor; Ralph Nader, consumer advocate; Rozonda Thomas, singer.
You are one of those people who can change the dynamic of a room simply by walking into it -- and it is not likely that you will ever be overlooked or ignored, so strong and compelling is your very aura. You recognize that to be the center of attention carries with it certain responsibilities -- but you are more than willing to fulfill them again and again.
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be able to count on someone to make a key decision today, so you must be willing to step up and do what must be done.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to endure talk that doesn't seem to suit the current situation. You are likely to see things much differently by day's end.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A question arises today that challenges much of what you've previously thought about a key situation. You can begin to make important changes.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're likely to be much busier today than you had anticipated, and this may render a personal commitment much more difficult to keep.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in no mood for niceties or pretenses today. You want things to be direct and honest, and you must work hard to keep things aboveboard.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to make a certain sacrifice today before you are able to progress according to your own expectations. A friend repays you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's going to take more than persistence today to change someone's mind; it's going to take a little courage, too -- if you can muster it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you think you know can be proven by day's end -- but it's going to take some doing, and some careful thought and perhaps a little luck.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you think of someone has little or nothing to do with what you can do if you join forces -- and your opinion may change by day's end.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It'll do you good to keep things moving today. You can surprise someone you know by making an unpopular but necessary decision.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must stay in control today, come what may. Don't let your emotions get the better of you -- and don't let a rival get your goat.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Sticking to your priorities is going to be more difficult today than you have supposed -- because of a rivalry in the making.
