IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you embrace a more dynamic personality. Others sit back when you enter a room, as you exude energy and enthusiasm. Your friends and loved ones naturally defer to you. If you are single, you will meet someone you’ll want to get to know well. Take your time deciding whether you can relate to this person as fully as you’d like to. If you are attached, the two of you smile even more when you are together. You’ll have conflicts, but if you understand where the other person is coming from, you will evolve as a couple. PISCES encourages you to spend your money.
