Born today, you don't always do things the way others do them, but that doesn't ever seem to set you back at all, and in fact, the more you stick to your own devices, the more you are likely to succeed -- though that success will not necessarily be recognized by others. Indeed, you are always in pursuit of "success" as defined by yourself alone and no one else -- and you will pursue it to the ends of the Earth if need be!
You maintain a rather robust image for the world at large, but when it comes to your private life, you are quite sensitive and vulnerable to all manner of emotional injuries. You must, therefore, always surround yourself with those who will treat you well -- with love, respect and consideration. Indeed, you often need to be handled "with kid gloves."
Also born on this date are: Taylor Lautner, actor; Jennifer Aniston, actress; Brandy, singer; Thomas Alva Edison, inventor; Sheryl Crow, singer and songwriter; Burt Reynolds, actor; Sidney Sheldon, author and TV writer.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been telling yourself that more must be done, but still, you've not moved ahead. Today you'll have more than enough reason, surely!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your memories of a better time are skewed, and you'll realize today that you've been coloring them in a way that cannot do you any real good.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Inaccuracies in work or play aren't to be tolerated today. You must step forward and call out those who are unwilling to "toe the line."
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Put yourself in another's shoes today and you'll know just what must be done. It's your attitude that needs adjustment, and now's the time!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There are many people who are depending on you for guidance right now, and despite any lack of confidence on your part, you must deliver the goods.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Look around today and you'll realize that you are surrounded by inspiration. Now is the time to do something memorable as a result.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll receive a kind of "shock treatment" today at the hands of a friend who realizes just what you really need. Be ready.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A seeming difficulty is actually nothing of the kind, as you will discover as the pace increases today and you make up for some lost time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself caring for one who, by rights, should be caring for you. This relationship continues in this way for a while.
