IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you have a way of stunning others by taking the most unexpected actions. People find hanging out with you to be exciting and noteworthy. Your creativity mixed with your willingness to take risks creates dynamic situations. If you are single, you could meet someone from out of the blue. Look to the second half of this birthday year to meet this person. If you are attached, your sweetie might point out that you seem unusually rigid. You might want to show more interest in others’ ideas. A fellow AQUARIUS could be just as stubborn as you are.
