It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 12, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Love Yourself by Justin Bieber. Genius, directed by Michael Grandage, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Kaleidoscope. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Lego Marvel's Avengers.
