If Your Birthday Is February 23

Actress Dakota Fanning (1994) shares your birthday. You are a sensible realist who understands how things work in the world. You are pragmatic and accommodating, but you know what you want. Settle your debts this year, to prepare for financial accumulation in the next three years. To clear away indebtedness is the thrust of this year. Consolidate your affairs for future growth.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Something behind the scenes might squelch your plans for travel or attending school. This might also affect legal matters or anything to do with medicine. Your hands are tied, so just cope as best you can. This will pass soon. We all feel it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Discussions with others about shared property, insurance matters, inheritances and anything you own jointly might discourage you. Someone will block you or be uncooperative. Learn to work with this until you can make it better. Courage!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Dealings with authority figures are dicey. (This might be your boss, your parent or a teacher.) Even relations with partners and close friends are a bit strained because it’s hard to make things go your way, isn’t it? Be patient because this is just temporary.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might feel restricted by teachers or a situation at work. Likewise, matters related to publishing, the media, medicine and the law are also binding you. Naturally, you don’t want to have your hands tied; but sometimes, you have to compromise. Oh well.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you face challenges with shared property and other people’s wealth. These challenges could also relate to your responsibility for children or the cost of something related to kids. Whatever the case, you feel weighed down by obligations. Whatever the case, this will pass.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Relations with others, especially partners and close friends, might be strained. Basically, you cannot do what you want. This is because someone else is blocking your efforts; or some kind of barrier is holding you back from just being yourself. Yikes!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Onerous obligations related to your work means you are now forced you to put duty ahead of your own gratification. (Boo hoo.) As always, there’s no free lunch. Just accept this reality, no matter how harsh it seems, and work within it. Good luck.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your wishes to be free to party or enjoy yourself, or spend money on a vacation or children are blocked for some reason. You won’t be able to do everything you want to do. This is just the tenor of this day and we all have to suck it up.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Discussions with a family member, especially on older person or someone in authority might be strained. It’s hard to get agreement. Someone might block what you want to achieve, and of course, this is frustrating. Consider it an opportunity to cultivate patience.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are worried because whatever you try to do is difficult. As a result, you feel restricted and depressed. You might decide to avoid certain daily contacts. Be careful, because you might be reinforcing the very circumstances that make you feel isolated. Hmmm?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You feel financially restricted or held back. This sort of thing comes and goes. Don’t let this get you down because whatever this restriction is will soon be gone, and you will be free of it. An older friend might be critical. Perhaps a group stands against you. Be patient. It’s a temporary speed bump.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Physically and psychologically, your energy is low. In fact, you feel world-weary. But perhaps you are making choices that lead to this? Different choices might bring different results? Fear not, because this situation will improve rapidly. It’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.
