Born today, you are almost certain to score a number of memorable "firsts" in your lifetime, the majority of which will be during your early years and shape the overall trajectory of your professional, if not personal, life. You'll know what it is you must do in order to excel and be noticed at an unusually early age, and if you commit to that activity, your success is all but guaranteed. Know, however, that desire does not in itself bring you success.
You may not be unique, exactly, but there is much about you that sets you apart -- and your tenacity is certainly one of them. You are willing to do whatever is necessary to succeed, once your idea of success has gelled in your mind.
Also born on this date are: Jimmy Durante, actor and comedian; Elizabeth Banks, actress; Robert Wagner, actor; Roberta Flack, singer; Stephanie Beatriz, actress; Mark Spitz, Olympic swimmer; Makenzie Vega, actress.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Practice what you can today and leave the rest up to inspiration and improvisation. It's a wild day -- but a productive one.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It's time for you to unveil something you've been working on for quite a while. Don't be tempted to copy a friend's method; do it your own way!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be looking down a long and winding road today, but there's no reason to think that you can't navigate it well and reach your destination.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is no time to tinker with something you know is good; overworking it can only make a mess and keep your work from having a major impact.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Focus on that which you've left undone and you'll surely be able to get to the bottom of your list before the day is out. Be sure to prioritize.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have trouble keeping a dark mood at bay, but as it comes on, you should be able to make room for it by completing key assignments.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It's a good day to retrace your steps to determine where a small but significant error was made. You should discover that you're in the clear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A problem is exacerbated today by faulty positioning -- but it's not you who are at fault. Quick action on your part can save the day.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must still toe the line today and give someone precisely what he or she asks for without complaint. You can improvise another time!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not understand what someone is asking you for, but by continuing to do what comes naturally, you should have an easy time of it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's time to face a certain situation head-on. Don't leave the arena without knowing you've won the day, as a rival will be persistent.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can turn a routine endeavor into something of an artistic statement today. Others will be eager to follow suit -- if they can.
