HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, April 5, 2013: This year you make it a point to express your feelings more often – especially your friendly, more positive ones. Others respond in kind, and they will have an easier time relating to you as a result. If single, you’ll do well in just about any circumstance. You need to decide what you want from a relationship and choose the right person accordingly. You could meet someone simply by going about your daily activities. If attached, your openness will encourage greater closeness. Your sweetie finds you exciting yet unpredictable. Aquarius is a loyal friend. A baby born today has a sun in Aries and a moon in Aquarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Let your weekend plans float around in your mind as much as you’d like. Take off to visit some friends, or plan a get-together in the near future.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • You might be left trying to tie up the loose ends of a situation. You might not know why this is the case, but you do know what to do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Keep reaching out to others. You’ll want to get the lay of the land before you commit to anything. Friends might push you in a certain direction.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Relate on an individual basis, and let others know why they are important to you. Sometimes you assume that others just know.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Others seem to be in control right now. You can carry on all you want, but either go along with someone else’s plans or make your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Defer to someone else in order to lighten your workload. Confusion surrounds a personal situation. You have some choices to make.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You can’t suppress your playfulness – even if you should change your mind or decide to do something differently.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Stay centered, and recognize when enough is enough. You know far more than what you are sharing. Realize what is happening between you and someone else.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Be aware of the cost of proceeding as you are. If you are investing in real estate, the superficial costs have nothing to do with reality.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Listen to your imagination, and follow through on an idea that seems a little offbeat. You’ll get your point across while still being able to express your caring.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Avoid getting into today’s confusion; otherwise, your feelings easily could be hurt. Listen to a friend who shares a secret of sorts.
