HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013: This year your words carry a lot of weight. You don’t need to fight for an audience; others make it their pleasure to listen to your ideas. Your resourcefulness impresses them. Give 150 percent to whatever you choose to focus on. The results might not be any different, but you will feel better. If single, you don’t need to go far – your magnetic personality attracts many potential suitors. If attached, your interactions are full of intensity and understanding. You will enjoy your time together more, especially as you learn new ways of expressing yourself. You are never shy with Aries. A baby born today has a sun in Aquarius and a moon in Aries.
