HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013: This year you move away from some of your firmly held positions. You see the power of being flexible and giving others their space. Your imagination is nothing less than a gift. If single, Cupid’s arrow could hit the bull’s-eye this year. If attached, there might be times when no one can find the two of you. You act like newfound lovers. Enjoy! Gemini can make your mind work overtime. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Taurus if born before 1:50 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You might be weighing the pros and cons of using a certain method to handle your finances. Others will push heavily for you to choose their method.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Others appreciate your impulsiveness, as it rarely is experienced. You can be creative, but putting that gift into action is uncommon for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Get some extra sleep if that would make you happy. You need some time to yourself. Your uniqueness separates you from others, and it is intriguing many people.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Go to a movie or someplace else where you will be entertained. You’ll enjoy the energy that surrounds the crowd, as well as the pastime itself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You seem to assume your natural role as the leader. Instead, why not let go of this responsibility and join friends? You always have a good time with this group.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Reach out to someone at a distance, as you have not visited this person in a while. Someone you care a lot about could add some confusion to your plans.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Defer to others in the morning – it simply is easier. Use the afternoon for getting together with someone at a distance. Meet this person halfway.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Listen to what others suggest. Before you know it, you could have some interesting plans. A little spontaneity might bring you good luck.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Do something just for you this morning, whether it be sleeping in or reading the Sunday paper. By afternoon, you will have plans.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Express your enjoyment of a loved one by spending time with him or her. The two of you often act like two kids playing in a sandbox together.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You might not feel awake until midafternoon, but once you are, there is no stopping you. See what a little R and R can do?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Keep asking important questions. Make calls in the morning. Inevitably, you will change your plans a few times because of your conversations.
