HAPPY Birthday for Thursday Feb. 23, 2018:
This year you break past previous restrictions. You often think in terms of your daily life, and let long-term planning fall to the wayside. If you are single, your popularity soars. Be willing to read between the lines with a potential suitor. The issue might not be what is said, but what isn’t said! If you are attached, the two of you enjoy more excitement than usual. As a couple, you are likely to make a major change on the homefront. GEMINI often presents new ideas that you can count on.
