HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, July 14, 2013: This year you will feel as if you have a lucky rabbit’s foot in your back pocket. A newfound positive attitude could change your year and your life. You are in the first year of a new 12-year life cycle. If single, you’ll have an opportunity to date many people, but somewhere among them lies a very significant relationship. If attached, your relationship seems to take on a more joyful tone, especially toward your next birthday. Libra can make you tense, as he or she reads you cold. A baby born today has a sun in Cancer and a moon in Libra if born after 12:41 a.m. Prior to that time, the moon is in Virgo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might come off as curt to some people who are not used to your style. Hang close to home. Pressure involving a commitment could be edging into your afternoon.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Events could encourage you to detach. The more distanced you can be from hot situations and the people who trigger you, the better off you’ll be.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your playfulness helps get you past a problem. Understand that others do not have your unique perspective and ability to laugh.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Tension builds. You might wonder what is necessary to get past someone’s controlling ways. Expect uproar, no matter which path of resistance you choose.
