HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 10, 2013: This year, you experience a new beginning in a significant area of your life. To others, you will seem as if you have endless energy and creativity, and they will be right. Take advantage of this special year; use it well, but do not step on others’ feet. If single, you might choose a relationship in which someone puts you on a pedestal. If attached, make sure that you share the limelight and/or dote on your sweetie, or he or she might become very uncomfortable and difficult. Taurus knows how to spend his or her money, and maybe even yours, too! A baby born today has a sun and moon in Aries if born before 8:22 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Taurus.
