HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Feb. 18, 2011: This year, try a new approach, and see what happens. Let go of rigidity. If single, your love life could become very intense. If attached, the two of you invent a new tango as you up the love temperature. Virgo understands you.
A baby born today before 1:39 a.m. is an Aquarius, Moon in Leo. If born between that time and 4:25 p.m., the baby will be an Aquarius Sun, Moon in Virgo. After 4:25 p.m., look to Pisces Sun with a Moon in Virgo. All times are Pacific.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Your enthusiasm might be waning. Schedule a late lunch. Take off afterward.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Your ability to grasp the many different implications of a situation comes into play in exploring solutions. Brainstorm away.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You swing into weekend mode a little too soon. No matter what you do, you are simply not in the mood to work.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • How you deal with someone and the choices you make could change with new information coming in. Someone demonstrates his or her caring in a conversation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • See what energizes a situation. Know when to put a halt to spending, especially if it is stressing your budget.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Don’t ignore a financial issue. Your ability to come up with a solution emerges. Funnel more creativity into your personal life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • Willingly back off from a hassle. Let others resolve it, as whatever you suggest will not be “right” anyway. Take some much-needed personal time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Others say what they think and feel. In fact, letting another person jabber could be most informative. A meeting could be very important.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Pressure builds, as last-minute details tumble into your lap. Stop and take a deep breath. Others respect your need for completion. Just don’t let them take advantage of it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Keep reaching out for others. You might not be on the right path, but you certainly are trying to find the best way to go. Note when your thought process becomes rigid.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Someone would like to play his or her hand without interference. Maintain a say in financial decisions. A personal relationship could warm up as a result.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Realize what is happening with a child or loved one. If you pull away mentally, you will get a better sense of the conflict surrounding this person. Emphasize your goals. Look to the long-term in a meeting. Others might be a little frivolous.
