HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, July 29, 2013: This year you might feel conflicted about your choices. A situation involving a roommate or family member often leaves you feeling insecure. It is good to evaluate but not undermine yourself. You have good judgment. If single, you have a natural magnetism that mixes well with the fun personality of a Leo, and you will have many admirers as a result. If attached, you have many different areas where you differ from your significant other. Don’t argue – just understand that you are different and respect your differences. Taurus can be loyal but stubborn. A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Taurus if born before 2:43 p.m. Afterward, the moon is in Aries.
