HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 24, 2013: This year you focus on your ability to communicate your feelings. You often express your anger in such a way that others are shocked and could distance themselves. This type of behavior could become an issue in a relationship. If single, do not be surprised if a bond could be difficult to get off the ground, especially through spring. If attached, make sure you are not blaming your sweetie for something that really is your fault. You find Libra particularly desirable. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Libra.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You could be juggling a bit more than you want to. Honor your priorities, and eliminate anything that is insignificant and/or futile.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You pull the wild card financially. You are more likely to encounter extremes, so remain focused when dealing with money.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your creativity emerges when dealing with a loved one. A solution emerges, no matter what you have to deal with or what choices you have to make.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You come from an anchored point of view. Sometimes others see you as a stick in the mud when it comes to taking risks.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Listen to news with focus and determination. Though everything might seem fine, you could become aware of someone’s suppressed anger.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Be aware of the possibilities surrounding an offer. Look at alternative options – they might be more numerous than you had originally thought.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Your smile and positive approach allows greater give-and-take. You know what is happening below the surface, and you will choose to boycott it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A meeting provides direction as well as feedback. You’ll see someone’s anger, perhaps for the first time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You are changing – and quickly, at that. Your belief that you gain as a result of resolving a problem is worth exploring.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Keep reaching out to someone at a distance whom you genuinely care about. The unexpected often occurs.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Take news with a grain of salt. You might not understand everything that is happening around you, but you have a theory about the different elements involved.
