HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013: This year you will experience a lot of good luck if you are able to center yourself and follow your instincts. In fact, you might be surprised at how well you land. If single, the people you attract could be emotionally unavailable. If attached, the two of you make an excellent couple. Sometimes you enjoy going off together without anyone else; other times, you like having your own downtime. Cancer understands you better than you do! A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Cancer.
