Happy birthday for Monday September 17, 2018:
This year you witness several unantici- pated changes. Make it OK to be a little reticent or cautious about your choices. Know that you will make strong selec- tions if you open up your imagination. If you are single, you could become overly serious in a relationship, which likely will put a damper on the other party’s feelings. If you are attached, the two of you want to add a stronger foundation to your bond. You also desire a concrete expression of your love. CAPRICORN might be full of ideas for how to achieve your goals.
