Born today, you are nothing if not original, and yet at the same time you understand that it takes more than originality to have an impact and succeed. For this reason, you're likely to spend a great deal of your life working hard to be a part of something rather than standing out from the crowd as something different. You want your ideas to become the status quo, not just challenge the status quo at every turn! You base your particular style and aesthetic on simplicity and efficiency -- two very strong aspects of your temperament and personality.
You're likely to have very few lasting friendships, but those you do have may well prove to be lifelong and definitive -- which means, of course, that you wouldn't be able to be you without the influence of those few friends. You are loyal, surely, but that doesn't mean you can't or won't disagree. You love a good, well-founded argument!
Also born on this date are: Thomas Jefferson, U.S. president; Al Green, singer; Ron Perlman, actor; Tony Dow, actor; Hunter Pence, baseball player; Rick Schroder, actor; Don Adams, actor and comedian; Samuel Beckett, playwright.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll react to the day's events as if you have anticipated everything accurately -- but the truth is you have to make some careful adjustments.
