HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, April 12, 2013: This year you will experience a change in yourself when you’re in front of crowds or at work. An interest in popularity, control and effective communication evolves. If you have big goals, there is no better year than this one to try to achieve them. If single, you will meet an admirer when you’re out or at work. This person could be important to your life history. If attached, include your sweetie more in your social life. He or she will appreciate being involved. Gemini knows how to get you fired up. A baby born today has a sun in Aries and a moon in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it … and later be sorry that you did. Stay centered.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Someone you are dealing with could do a total reversal. Your discussions might have seemed right-on, but obviously there was a vulnerability that was not discussed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • You might want to rethink your direction in a partnership. At the last minute, this person could pull the rug right out from under you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You can’t hide your enthusiasm for the upcoming weekend. You still might need to complete a project, whether it’s doing your taxes or spring cleaning.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Others look up to you. Just when you think everything is under control, chaos erupts. Someone is taking a lesson on how to handle pressure just by watching you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Someone’s stubbornness forces you to detach and rethink your plans. You need to head down a path with fewer obstacles.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You have a way of testing others’ limits, and today is no exception. Calls come in and meetings happen.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Your creativity emerges when dealing with a sudden change. Be willing to distance yourself or just say “no.”
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You have started using your creativity more frequently, and now you are fairly sure of yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Your mind is focused on a personal or domestic matter. You also could be going over the pros and cons of a situation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • You have a way with words that makes others step back and listen. You might not be as sure of yourself as you could or should be.
