HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013: This year you often wonder about the nature of your friendships and relationships. You will note that in general, they seem to have a quirky or unpredictable quality to them. Emphasize your long-term desires, but be willing to fulfill your goals in a less-traditional manner. If single, you could meet someone through a friend, or a friendship could become more. If attached, as a couple you might head in a new direction and love every moment of the change. Gemini might appear to be a bit flaky, but he or she really is there for you. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Gemini.
