Born today, you are a force to be reckoned with -- at work and at play. You are never one to take a backseat when there is room in the front, and you always want to have a controlling influence over the events that transpire around you. You can be a highly social individual, the kind who derives great enjoyment and inspiration from contact with others -- and yet you don't always enjoy working with those with whom you socialize, and in this you are like a great many other Aquarians who choose to keep business and pleasure as separate as possible.
You are daring and fun-loving and always eager to be entertained -- and to entertain others as well. Despite your ability to work harder than others, you also like to have fun.
Also born on this date are: Joe Pesci, actor; Carole King, singer and songwriter; Travis Tritt, singer; Mia Farrow, actress; Alice Walker, author; William Henry Harrison, U.S. president; Brendan Behan, Irish poet and playwright.
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may wake to discover that the day has dawned in a manner that doesn't suit your plans -- but is that going to stop you? No way -- not today!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A minor glitch slows you down for a time today, but you'll come roaring back and finish ahead of schedule -- or so a good friend believes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your thoughts are likely to turn to a time gone by in which you were "sitting pretty" -- but what is it that makes you doubt today's potential?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Others gravitate toward you all day long, in the hopes of achieving something memorable. Indeed, that's a gift you can give everyone!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A promise is broken today -- but another is kept, and you'll feel as though you've come out ahead. It's all a matter of a healthy perspective.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're available to help someone in need today, but though the "how" is certain, the "when" remains to be seen. Keep yourself busy but ready.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- When something doesn't work out quite the way you had planned, try reversing it and giving it another go. You'll be surprised at the results.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Some may call you a "crackpot" for pursuing a certain goal with reckless abandon -- but you're in it for keeps, and today's the day.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can't get things done today without getting your hands dirty -- so do what you must to avoid any squeamishness, and get started!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It may be time for you to wash your hands of a problem that has been hanging on for quite a while. It's someone else's responsibility now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll have to juggle your responsibilities today with great care. Not everyone agrees with your approach, but that won't slow you down.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Care taken in getting something "just right" will give you a sense of satisfaction that others do not enjoy. It's a good day.
