Born today, you rely on both your keen intellect and a vivid, unfettered sense of humor to see you through -- and this is because, from an early age, you may well have realized that despite one's family structure and circle of friends, one is almost entirely alone in the world and must navigate situations using his or her native abilities at every juncture.
You don't have to say a lot to have a major impact on others. Indeed, you are so capable with words that you never need to say more than is necessary in order to convince a friend, persuade a foe or prove any point to anyone who you might encounter. You are often quite self-effacing, though you have a clear understanding of your own talents and capabilities; you surely know what you can do!
Also born on this date are: Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president; Robert Griffin III, football player; Charles Darwin, evolutionist and author; Christina Ricci, actress; Arsenio Hall, actor and talk show host.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Fun and profit are not mutually exclusive today -- and, in fact, you can have more of both by doing something in a way that nobody expects.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll enjoy a new opportunity that can make matters better for you at work and on the home front. An old friend resurfaces.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be inspired to do something special for a loved one today when memories of an old flame distract you from an unnecessary personal issue.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can expect things to line up in your favor today -- but don't be disingenuous and behave as though this isn't something you appreciate!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Sincerity is the key to success today. You must be sincere in all things -- especially when you're in a position of authority.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't make the mistake of thinking that all things will bend to your will today. You must let things happen organically in some key situations.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are facing a tricky situation, armed with only desires to do good and a willingness to get going. When do you begin?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will surprise no one by doing what only you know how to do. Today you'll enjoy more than one opportunity to demonstrate your expertise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be contacted today by someone who was instrumental in a past success -- and you realize that those days are not gone for good!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can maintain the highest standards today and still ease your way through a situation that doesn't really offer what you're looking for.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can work wonders today with resources that are less than ideal, and others look upon you with more than admiration as a result.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may hear from someone today whom you have missed for quite some time, though you haven't been consciously aware of it until right now.
