Born today, you are both ambitious and capable, and you are likely to get quite far as a result -- but you are always in danger of overstepping, of biting off more than you can chew or of finding yourself in over your head, because you are not as aware of your own limitations as you might be and have a habit of pursuing the inaccessible until you have gotten yourself and sometimes others into hot water.
You derive a great deal of strength and inspiration from family and friends who, from the beginning, will be integral parts of all aspects of your life, from the most intimately personal to the professional. You never try to conceal anything from those closest to you, nor they from you -- usually.
Also born on this date are: Taylor Lautner, actor; Jennifer Aniston, actress; Brandy, singer; Thomas Alva Edison, inventor; Sheryl Crow, singer and songwriter; Burt Reynolds, actor; Sidney Sheldon, author and TV writer.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Pressure is likely to be exerted today by those who don’t know what you’re already going through. You may have to step back and take stock.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A member of your inner circle may object to an idea you’ve been floating lately. You must be willing to listen to what makes perfect sense.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot afford to let tension rise so fast that you’re unable to keep things from boiling over. Mediate, navigate and exert gentle control.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If apologies are being made today, you’ll want to chime in, surely, in the hopes that someone will forget all about a recent slight.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’s true that time heals all wounds, but enough time has to elapse -- and you’ve not let that happen yet. Be patient and hope for the best.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be trying so hard to control a certain situation that you may actually be responsible for it getting out of control. Use great care!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It’s not enough simply to assert the truth as you see it; you must be willing to support your thesis with evidence others can understand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- That which is going on beneath the surface deserves your attention today, and may be more important than anything happening on the surface.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your plans may come to naught today simply because someone else didn’t know what you had in mind. Next time, share with all involved.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must be willing to look closely at what is going on today and examine things one at a time. Avoid generalities and broad strokes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is the time to get your head back into the game and engage others the way you know how. A quiet, laid-back approach is for another day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Though individual events may not seem all that important to you as they happen, if you add them up, you’ll realize what’s really been going on.
