HOROSCOPE 

As a Pisces born on February 23rd, your imagination, intuition and selflessness are amongst your most defining qualities. You have an active and creative mind, which you use for a variety of purpose, one being to find the best in people and situations. Your friends and family admire your imaginative optimism, but they truly appreciate your emotional understanding. At times, you seem to just “know” when a loved one is upset or troubled. When someone you care about is in need, there is little you would not sacrifice for their well being.
