For Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2003. Those with birthdays today: You have the unique opportunity to do things differently this year. The only one who can or will hold you back is you. Your instinctive reactions might be timid or somewhat off. Learn to get past your inhibitions and zoom in on what is important. If you are single, you will easily meet people, though whether you decide to make more of a connection or not depends on you. If attached, your relationship will develop in a new direction if you share more of yourself.
