Born today, you are the kind of person for whom hard work is often quite easy and a challenge is nothing to be feared. Indeed, you are so willing to immerse yourself in a task that you may make it your life's work -- and, in fact, your life is likely to be defined by what you choose to do professionally. You never simply "go to work," but rather you dive into whatever the current project may be in such a way as to provide for yourself inspiration, meaning and tremendous self-satisfaction.
When it comes to personal relationships, you can be rather mysterious at times, for it may never be entirely clear to friends or loved ones what it is that you want from them. This is partly because what you really want cannot be derived from even the closest relationships -- while at the same time you are much like anyone else in that you cannot live without them.
Also born on this date are: Victoria Justice, actress; Seal, singer; Smokey Robinson, singer and songwriter; Jeff Daniels, actor; Nicolaus Copernicus, astronomer; Justine Bateman, actress; Amy Tan, writer.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your care for another comes to the fore today and allows both of you to overcome an obstacle that a third party has placed in your path.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll have to stay put for a while today, even as you make plans that will have you on the move as soon as you receive an official "go ahead."
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It may take longer to get from here to there than you had planned, but once you're on your way, you should enjoy all that the trip has to offer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You receive much more support today than you had expected -- but it may actually be more than you need while keeping things on track.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your response to someone's success has you reflecting on your current position. You'll understand why you've made certain recent decisions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be unusually anxious about what lies ahead today, but only because you haven't considered all your options as fully as possible.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to start a new project, but you may not be able to until you've tied up the few loose ends that remain from an old one.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A casual discussion gives you almost all the information needed to continue making progress today. A chance encounter affects your attitude.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Take care today that you're not judging someone simply because you see something of yourself in what he or she is doing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be impatient with someone's leisurely pace today -- but it's not up to you to speed things up. By all means, remain calm!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The trouble that comes your way today can be dispensed with quickly, provided you are aware of how it might affect you if you do not act.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Now is not the time to accept a rival's challenge to do more than you have been assigned. You needn't prove yourself to anyone right now.
