HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, April 19, 2013: This year your energy is so high that you have difficulty keeping yourself contained. You will need to incorporate more physical activity into your life, or else your fuse will become shorter and shorter. If single, you will enjoy someone you meet after spring. If attached, the two of you might take up a new hobby, sport or pastime together. Leo can be as demanding as you are! A baby born today has a sun in Aries if born before 3:03 p.m. Afterward, the sun will be in Taurus. The moon is in Leo all day.
