HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, June 19, 2013: This year expect to experience some adjustments and also some discomfort. You will enjoy people a lot. You’ll swap jokes and exude charm. Your daily routine becomes even more important. Take good care of your health: Get a flu shot, see the dentist regularly and see the doctor if need be. If single, you could meet someone special in the next few months; however, note that there could be an element of instability connected to this bond. Scorpio has a similar curiosity as you do. A baby born today has a sun in Gemini and a moon in Scorpio.
