Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For February 18, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A misunderstanding is cleared up today -- but you may be left holding the bag if you are not careful. You cannot afford to be misled.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have the choice today to run your own affairs or let someone else step in and exert control. There's a good reason for either option.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will have to size things up very quickly today. It will become clear to others just whom they are dealing with as you step forward confidently.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The calmer you can remain today while facing a coming challenge, the better you will perform when the time comes to swing into action.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A little mistrust may intrude on your affairs today. While you are tending to a central issue, those around you can solve peripheral problems.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Big things often start very small, and that should certainly hold true today. You must be ready for the pace to quicken suddenly -- and very soon.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The unconventional calls to you today. You may find yourself yearning for a time when things were "simpler" -- but is that perception accurate?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your passions are likely to run near the surface today. Such currents must be navigated with care, whether you are alone or with others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Sensitivity is not a weakness today -- unless you fail to protect yourself and you let your emotions become a vulnerability.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It'll be essential to direct others with care today. Your natural wisdom will be on display as you arrange things with your usual flair.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Novelty intrigues you today, and may actually compel you to explore something of which, in the past, you were actually afraid. Be bold.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Much seems to be changing all around you today, but there are certain constants you can rely on as you move forward. Use reasonable caution.
