Today’s Horoscope

By Linda C. Black Tribune Media Services Today’s Birthday (Feb. 16). You’re multitalented, and this year especially. You’re good at planning and fixing things this year _ even more so than usual. But you can’t do everything. Choose a partner whose skills complement yours, and try not to argue all the time. You’ll get more done if you don’t. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) _ Today is a 9 _ Behavior can be modified, so don’t give up. Let go of a bad habit, inspire a friend to let go of one, or do both. Taurus (April 20-May 20) _ Today is a 5 _ Don’t let yourself get drawn into somebody else’s drama. Stay objective so that you can be of some use. Be compassionate, not wimpy. Gemini (May 21-June 21) _ Today is an 8 _ Did you ever see such stubborn individuals in your whole life? Humor might work. If you can make them laugh, they might learn to get along. Cancer (June 22-July 22) _ Today is a 4 _ Don’t hurry to make your decision, even if there’s not much time. Be careful now and you’ll be thankful later. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) _ Today is a 7 _ If you and your partner simply can’t agree, a compromise is required. You can be the first to make a concession because you have so much more to give. You’ll still have plenty left over. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) _ Today is a 4 _ If you’re doing more than you ever thought possible, maybe you’re tougher than you realized. Don’t let others push you around. There isn’t time for that. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) _ Today is a 9 _ Should you go out and play with friends or stay home with family? Not an easy choice, but the friends will get along fine without you. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) _ Today is a 5 _ You shouldn’t have to pitch a fit to get things to go your way. Do you have a clear goal in mind? That’ll help. Play that card when the others start arguing. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) _ Today is a 9 _ Don’t think of what you’ve left behind; think of where you’re going. But use the experience you’ve gained to avoid further difficulties. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) _ Today is a 5 _ If you keep watching for the bargains, you’re apt to find some doozies. With rebates and all, you could end up with a profit! Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) _ Today is a 7 _ You’re kind of set in your ways, though you’d be the last to admit it. You’ll notice a slight resistance to change. It’s natural for you _ and calming. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) _ Today is a 5 _ Continue to hammer away at the project you’re creating. Part of the process is innovation, so don’t get stuck on how it should be. ___ ‘copy 2003, TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES INC. Distributed by Knight Ridder/Tribune Information Services.
