Happy Birthday to You

Horoscope for today’s birthday…

You’ll be good at finding bargains this year, but most of the profit you make may be in the money you save. That counts, too; never sell yourself short.

Happy Birthday: There will be plenty of adjustments to make this year. Your decisions must be based on what you truly want to do. Know in your heart that you have made the right choice, and when you proceed, you will discover the success you have been denied in the past. Your numbers are 2, 15, 29, 31, 38, 44

Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, resourceful and unusually gifted. You have the ability to change at will and you can work on several different ideas at one time. You are intelligent, well versed and incredibly calculating.
