Born today, you are a deeply private individual, and you weigh your options very carefully -- and assess the potential outcomes -- whenever you have the choice of sharing yourself and your thoughts and feelings with others. Social paralysis should not last long, however, for one of two reasons: Either you will discover that to step out and speak up serves your needs much better or someone will simply insist that you "snap out of it." In either event, you will become a capable and social being -- one who enjoys others and is enjoyed by them.
You may discover, at the threshold of adulthood, an outlet for both your voice and talents -- and once you begin to develop this interest and its kindred talents, you will find that there is no stopping you.
Also born on this date are: George Harrison, musician and singer; Sean Astin, actor; Chelsea Handler, comedian, actress, TV host; Tea Leoni, actress; Jim Backus, actor; Sally Jessy Raphael, talk show host.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can make a mark today with relative ease -- but you want others to know that it's you who has made it, and that might take some extra effort.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you are after is not a "fait accompli" today; you may have to redouble your efforts before you notice any appreciable progress.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There's no need for you to sugarcoat what you know to be a rather harsh truth, as it's important that everyone knows what it really means.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The possibilities are expanding at this time, and you have a chance to explore something that was only a distant dream but a few days ago.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll have a choice to make today before you swing into action. Make it too late, and you may be forced into something that can cause you harm.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Much depends upon your ability to see the truth when all around you are trying to conceal it. Once you do, you'll have a significant impact.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are likely to discover that what someone has been telling you for quite some time is, in fact, the truth. You may well be a natural.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have to work hard today to put the finishing touches on a project that, when complete, can prove to be a defining endeavor.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Unlike some others, you'll have to choose from among several possible destinations today. When you set out makes a difference!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will have to invest more than mere thought to a given endeavor today; indeed, physical effort and financial outlay may well be required.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your efforts will not go unnoticed today. A friend picks up where you left off yesterday -- but you'll be back on the job very soon.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Those who are used to watching you do your thing are likely to be surprised by a subtle shift in your execution. This is an improvement.
