HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013: This year you often think that all is well, only to discover later that controversy surrounds you. You’ll find that exterior events do not matter if you stay grounded. Your strong personality will attract what you need and want. If single, you have many potential sweeties, but it might not be the easiest year for you to develop a strong bond with someone. If attached, the two of you could become involved in power plays if you choose not to respect each other’s differences. A fellow Capricorn is a tough opponent and/or a difficult friend. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Capricorn if born before 1:01 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aquarius.
