Born today, you are likely to find yourself at loggerheads with the powers that be again and again throughout your very busy and active lifetime -- but this is only because you feel very strongly about certain things in life, and you will not be swayed against what comes naturally to you by anyone who wields merely titular control over you. In other words, you want to be your own boss -- and so you will be, more often than not!
It should come as no surprise, then, that you can be quite difficult to work with. Yet at the same time, you can be the perfect collaborator, because you understand more than most the importance of self-expression, and so you allow those working with you the same kind of freedom that you insist upon for yourself -- as long as you are the one in charge!
Also born on this date are: Elliot Page, actor and producer; Jennifer Love Hewitt, actress; Alan Rickman, actor; Kelsey Grammer, actor; Rue McClanahan, actress; Andres Segovia, classical guitarist; Nina Simone, singer and activist.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find that someone is more prepared than you are to face what is coming your way. Instead of giving up, offer to join forces.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A minor mix-up has you wondering what may happen next -- but you also realize that nothing need derail you at this time. Have some fun.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The simplest instructions yield the greatest rewards today, so be sure to put things in a way that others can easily understand them.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be knocked off balance today by someone who doesn't realize how he or she is breaking the rules -- but this shouldn't last long.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in the mood for something special today -- and you may have it if you're willing to spend a little more than you are used to.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The situation you find yourself in today may be the result of a practical joke gone wrong. This is something you do not want to repeat!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be backed into a corner by someone who is not likely to take "no" for an answer. Quick thinking on your part saves the day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Something you thought was well on the way to completion hasn't even started yet -- and this realization will require you to rethink plans.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Stick to what you know today in order to make a fine showing in a situation that otherwise won't allow you to demonstrate your true skills.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A rather convoluted message comes your way today. You make sense of it just in time to use the information it contains to your advantage.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- There are always going to be those who say "no" when "yes" is the only clear answer, so you needn't give them the time of day. Carry on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A financial surprise may have you scrambling to make the best use of available funds today. When in doubt, follow in another's footsteps.
