Born today, you consider yourself one of the most responsible and upstanding individuals born under your sign -- and so you are, in many ways. Your word is your bond, and you will never go back on a promise once it is given -- even if it means you must endure a great deal of hardship as a result. Highly principled, your actions are always a reflection of how you think and what you believe; you never do anything that is not, in some way, connected to the basics of your well-crafted ethics.
When it comes to personal challenges, you are not to be trifled with, and you will stand your ground whenever you are threatened in any way -- or whenever someone under your care is threatened. You know what it means to be the underdog, and you will always do what you can to lend your support to those who go by that moniker.
Also born on this date are: Gioachino Rossini, composer; Mark Foster, singer; Rakhee Thakrar, actress; Jessie Usher, actor; Jimmy Dorsey, musician and bandleader; Dinah Shore, singer and actress.
SUNDAY, MARCH 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to go farther today than expected, which means in the coming days you'll have less road to travel to reach your destination.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A memory inspires you to try something you've not enjoyed for quite some time. Before the day is out, an old friend contacts you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The plans you've been making will be ready to implement very soon, but you must take care that you're not rushing anyone in your care.
