HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012: This year you forge a new path, but only after you are sure that the status quo does not work. Tension and sarcasm often mark your endeavors. Your communication excels. If single, you will see the results of being able to present yourself well. If attached, the two of you work through some hot-button issues. Passion plays a significant role in your bond. Aries always encourages you. A baby born today has a sun in Pisces and a moon in Aries after 6:25 p.m. Before that time, the moon is in Pisces.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Much might be going on at work and also within yourself. You could become angry, but try not to act on that feeling. Sarcasm could be a whole other issue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You benefit in the daylight hours. Whatever you decide to do works out even better than you thought possible. Meetings work well. Surprises surround you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Conflict is possible with a boss. Honor your differences and remember who is in charge. Your words could come off as harsh-sounding when dealing with this person.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • If you are not sure as to which way to go, reach out to a trusted friend. Together, if you are open, you can figure out the proper path.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Sarcasm marks the morning. Be smart, and avoid playing into this behavior. You know what you want and where you are going. Do not get caught up in trivial matters.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Others continue to knock on your door, and will call and email you. Do not get short-tempered simply because you have too much on your plate.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Focus on work and your accomplishments. You have so much to do and so little time. Your effectiveness emerges. Schedule distractions and meetings for as late as you can.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Remove yourself from situations where you might not be energized or interested. Others will be able to see your lack of involvement.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You move slowly when dealing with a boss or older relative. You wonder why you have done what you have as of late, especially with another person’s attitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Make phone calls. Above all else, do not stand on ceremony – especially with a key person. Rather than encouraging separation, you will melt down emotional walls.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Refuse to get involved with others financially. You might not be right, but he or she might not be right either.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Someone might be trying to push your buttons. Stay centered and nonreactive, and this person will stop. Now is not the time to clear the air.
