HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, June 13, 2012: This year you might rely more on your creativity than you normally do. The results will be excellent, though you often might be challenged by a partner or loved one. Make this OK, as you will learn where there might be room for improvement with a plan. If single, you meet people with ease, but often discover that they are difficult, withdrawn or depressed. If you do not want this type of relationship, move on. If attached, avoid nitpicking over money with a partner. It won’t help; instead, it will cause tremendous irritation. Aries is a loyal and fun friend. A baby born today has a sun in Gemini and a moon in Aries all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • A serious edge to your communication style could color an important relationship.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • You might want to play a passive or laid-back role in what is happening. You also might not have much of a choice, considering your obligations and energy level.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Keep your long-term goals in mind. You could be concerned by a loved one and his or her attitude.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You often are sought out to handle difficult situations or to give advice. Such is the case today, but you also are juggling your own needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You could opt to detach from what is occurring at the moment, and you might be a lot happier as a result. Conversations could be unduly heavy or serious.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Deal with a partner directly. Hopefully this person can identify what is causing a sense of tension or concern with your budget.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might feel overwhelmed and could be making this feeling even more intense by either ignoring it or inflating it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Remain even when dealing with an associate or someone who is a part of your daily life. Also, ask for feedback from a friend or loved one.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Much is happening around you. Do you really want to be involved? Choose your battles wisely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You are well-grounded on the basics of life, and you know how to encourage others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Keep communication flowing. News or a call from a friend at a distance might put you off.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Your ability to move past a restriction is admirable, but a partner keeps blocking the path, leaving you in limbo. Detach as much as you can to gain understanding.
