HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, April 19, 2021:
Sharp, spontaneous and vivacious, all types of people have always surrounded you. This year, you continue to diversify your circle, whether in a competitive field or working for a nonprofit. Make time for outdoor activities since staying fit allows you to maintain a busy schedule. If you stay frugal, your finances continue to grow steadily. If single, let your guard down. If attached, talk less and listen more. TAURUS is sensual.
