HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, July 23, 2013: This year relationships take priority. People seek you out even more than in the past. The potential for an unusual bond becomes possible. Friendship will be critical to making this interaction work. If single, it seems as if there is always a better choice just around the corner. If attached, the two of you often debate the pros and cons of an issue. Remember that all fighting is about separation. Count on Aquarius for friendship. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Aquarius.
