HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, June 12, 2013: This year you experience your share of ups and downs. Make it a point to take good care of yourself. Stay active and follow an exercise routine. Share your feelings more often. If single, you might go from being alone one minute to meeting the love of your life the next. You are likely to meet someone who often puts a smile on your face. If attached, the two of you could develop a new hobby together. Count on Leo for fun and laughter. A baby born today has a sun in Gemini and a moon in Leo.
