HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013: This year you forge a new path. You also often stop and reflect. This combination proves to be very effective in your day-to-day life. Recognize the need to spend more time alone in order to ground yourself. If single, your friends or colleagues might prove instrumental in introducing you to someone who intrigues you. If attached, spend several weekends together as a couple; it will nurture your relationship. You will see the results quickly. Capricorn reads you cold. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Sagittarius if born before 9:55 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Capricorn.
