HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013: This year you open up to many different lifestyles and attitudes. You often meet people quite different from you without any effort. Be careful with a sibling or relative who could be out of sorts this year. This person relies on you and your judgment much more than you realize. If single, you might attract a new friend who introduces you to your next passion. If attached, work on your communication and develop a new pastime together. Aquarius points to the offbeat path. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Capricorn if born before 10:53 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aquarius.
