HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, April 11, 2013: This year you are unusually forthright and dynamic. A partner could be quite the opposite. You might not be sure what to do. Listen to this person’s woes, but don’t enable him or her. If single, you become very possessive when relating to a specific person. Is it you, or is it the other party? Remember, you cannot change anyone. If attached, the two of you juggle your finances fairly well. You will reach your mutual goal in the near future. Taurus is stubborn. A baby born today has a sun in Aries and a moon in Taurus.
