HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, April 9, 2013: This year others find you to be exceptionally creative and a source of many new ideas, and they often seek you out for help. Your efforts are, and will be, more valued than you realize. If you are single, you open up to new possibilities. Unless you are willing to meet someone at least halfway, creating a bond could be difficult. If you are attached, honor the fact that it takes two to form and carry on a relationship. Your sweetie could need extra nurturing. A fellow Aries might not have your imagination, but he or she is fun to hang out with. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Aries.
