HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Dec. 24, 2020:
Visionary, capable and overcoming, you are the expert in your field. You don’t let your success this year to be overshadowed by negative energy from others. You’re naturally porous and so it’s easy for work not to absorb. If single, you attract many but will often try to change them. You meet the one you want in July. If attached, other than petty confrontations, you are very happy. CANCER sticks through thick and thin.
