HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021:
Aesthetic, detailed and a perfectionist, you’re brilliant at what you do. With your fine sense of timing, this year you hang in there and pounce when the reality is right. Your project is extremely successful and profitable, and it’s best to hire a money manager. If single, you’re known to be commitment-phobic, and this year you find an unconventional and satisfying situation. If attached, you’re together like glue. VIRGO adores you.
