Born today, you seem to be a warm and generous individual, willing always to lend a hand, provide guidance and work with others to further their own ends. But like others born under your sign, there is another side to your nature that is, in your case at least, the complete opposite of the easygoing one. You can, at times, quickly turn and become one who people actively try to avoid, for you become quite sharp, harsh, dark, depressive and far too willing to engage another in meaningless combat.
You are something of a trickster, and you enjoy fooling those around you -- in ways both large and small. There is nothing you enjoy so much as a well-timed practical joke -- and yet, at the same time, you cannot abide being the butt of anyone's jokes. You can laugh at others always, but usually not at yourself -- and to some, this may prove intolerable.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Personal issues will be competing with professional concerns today for your attention. How you address a certain problem is key.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want to make any decision today that will box you in. By all means, keep your options open while giving others what they require.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your motives may be questioned by some today, but those closest to you know you are doing what you must in exactly the right way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll receive encouragement from some and criticism from others, and you'll find that both are useful to you at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be wondering if what you're doing today is in compliance with all of the rules. In such a situation, "no news is good news," surely!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Things that were knocked off the track recently can be righted today, and all you have to do is address a certain someone face to face.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've considered all options, but you're still overlooking one key reality today. When you spot it, you'll be on the right track.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have time to do something that is just for you -- and the result will be, as always, that you're far more eager to get your work done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- As you assess your own performance today, you may be unable to avoid comparisons with someone who has long been considered an expert.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You don't have to make a large wager today in order to win big; you simply have to keep your cards in the game. You have a strong hand!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're wishing that you could go back in time and revisit a project that gave you much of what you need right now. Surprise -- you can do so.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your plans are certainly solid, and yet there may be one or two last-minute details that hold you up. You may have to consider an alternative.
