HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Feb. 8, 2013: This year you will alternate between being reclusive and being open and friendly with others. During the times you spend alone, you will center yourself and become more grounded. When you finally emerge, you will be a force to be dealt with. If single, you could change that status quo, if you so choose. If attached, your sweetie finds you to be unusually magnetic and caring this year. At times, you will have a tendency to be me-oriented. Remember, a partnership consists of two people. Aquarius is unique in his or her own way. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Capricorn if born before 11:17 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aquarius.
