HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013: This year you become more easygoing than in the past, partially because of a relationship or a key friendship. Someone relates intensely and openly with you. You feel more secure as a result. If single, you could find this year to be very memorable. You could have a secret admirer, and you might want to start seeing this person on a romantic level. If attached, the two of you are likely to enjoy more couple time together. Curb a tendency to go boldly over the top with spending, eating out and other such activities. Leo always seems to have the right words. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius if born before 9:11 a.m. Afterward, it will be in Capricorn. The moon is in Leo all day.
