HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013: This year you open up to many plausible changes. You seem to go with the flow rather than fight the inevitable. Your creativity grows in bursts. Some of you will seek new avenues of self-expression as well. If single, you could meet someone who might serve as a muse. If attached, the two of you might start acting like newfound lovers. You also might choose to update your mutual responsibilities; both of you have changed. Count on Aries for excitement. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Aries.
