HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 3, 2013: This year you meet heavy demands, but the responsibilities cause you to be curt or touchy. Others can’t always identify with your ideas and actions. Find an effective outlet for your anger and frustration. If single, you might want to find someone who is just as busy as you are. Hopefully your schedules will fit together. If attached, make sure that you include your significant other in your plans as much as you can. Capricorn demands a lot from you. A baby born today has a sun in Aries and a moon in Capricorn.
