HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, July 17, 2013: This year the unexpected plays a dominant role in your community or your professional life. You might not know what will happen next. At first, you could have difficulty seeing anything positive emanating from all the surprises; however, you soon will understand how your creativity can point you in a new direction. If single, a relationship could have wild swings. If attached, the two of you might be welcoming a new addition, or a positive reflection of your bond will come into play. Scorpio’s intensity can weird you out. A baby born today has a sun in Cancer and a moon in Scorpio.
