A baby born today has a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Pisces.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, April 9, 2021:
Inventive, ardent and outrageous, broaden your horizons by thinking outside the box. This year, you strengthen how you communicate through the spoken and written word. Present your ideas clearly and convincingly, and there is no telling where it will lead. Superficial friendships fall by the wayside, while those who stood by you will be invaluable allies. If single, a whirlwind romance grabs you. If attached, renew your vows. GEMINI is unpredictable.
