HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, April 21, 2013: This year you open up to a radical change, yet you manage to remain anchored. You will be more critical; you also will gain a precision that previously was unknown. Your high energy allows you to cover a lot of ground this year. If single, you open up because of a relationship. This bond could develop into something more as early as this summer. If attached, the two of you connect with more passion and stronger emotions than in the past. Virgo always intrigues you. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Virgo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Don’t allow confusion to mark a situation. Even if there is a misunderstanding, there is no reason to hold a grudge. Share a hobby with a loved one.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Your normally seductive qualities reveal themselves once more. Let go of responsibilities and go with the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Understand what makes a roommate or loved one tick. You might want to motivate this person, as you have little patience right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You have been thinking about making a new purchase. You also need a change of scenery. Listen to news, and be more aware of what is expected.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Beam in more of what you want. It’s as if you’re carrying a lucky rabbit’s foot. A serious conversation is in the offing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You might want to revamp plans. Stay close to home, and figure out how to achieve your goals. Your laughter helps a family member lighten up.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You’ll realize how serious you have become. Recognize that you simply are more somber at this point in time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • You keep wanting to bring someone closer. Though you might want to devote more time to this effort, certain responsibilities must be met.
