HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012: This year you express your mellow and reasonable personality to many. Others clearly are drawn to you, no matter what segment of your life you are dealing with; however, your temper becomes explosive and can be triggered easily. To some people, you actually might seem scary. If single, you hook up with someone significant to your life history this year. If attached, the two of you gain by leaving town together. You will recharge and enjoy each other’s personalities and insights. Plan a longer getaway together. Taurus demands quality and could cost you a pretty penny. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Taurus all day.
