Born today, you always seem to be in pursuit of some secret obsession, and the what, why and how are not things that you can easily share with someone else for the simple reason that you don’t really know the answers to the latter two yourself. Still, you work hard to turn yourself into the kind of person who can reach the lofty goals you set, training mind, body and spirit to endure all manner of difficulties.
You are a keen study and you always yearn to know more about what makes other people tick, and when you find the answers, you are able to use them not only to your advantage, but to work with those around you to make things better -- for you, for them and for everyone involved. Despite your remarkable accomplishments, you are quite generous and spend much time doing things for others.
Also born on this date are: Jimmy Durante, actor and comedian; Elizabeth Banks, actress; Robert Wagner, actor; Roberta Flack, singer; Stephanie Beatriz, actress; Mark Spitz, Olympic swimmer; Makenzie Vega, actress.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don’t want to go into something new without a contingency plan. Be sure you’ve taken all possibilities into account. Flexibility counts!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your mind may be racing today, eager to light on an idea that you can pursue with resolve. It’ll likely happen when you least expect it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you have nothing concrete to focus on today, you may have trouble keeping up with competition. Invent something if you have to!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Taking both timing and ability into account, someone may deem you far more of a competitor than you recognize in yourself. This is good!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which is unique will capture your attention today, and you’ll be compelled to pursue it wherever it leads. Use caution during the afternoon.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It’s a good day to concentrate on something other than your prime objective. Go back to it tomorrow and things will be in sharper focus.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must first define what success means to you before you pursue it today. Much is changing all around you and you must steel your resolve.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Opportunities arise that may be intriguing, but nothing is likely to capture your imagination like the goal you’re already pursuing today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be unusually critical of those who are simply trying to do their best. What is it that’s really bothering you? Answer that first.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must respect the rules of time and place today, and not do that which is widely considered inappropriate -- for whatever reason.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You’ll have more spunk and “get up and go” today than anyone might expect, and you can use it to your advantage each hour of this busy day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not know precisely where you are headed right now but, in the short term, the journey is more important than the destination.
