HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017: This year you walk through many different situations yet gain in nearly all of them. You don’t often express your creativity, yet this coming year your flights of fancy mixed with your ingenuity add to your success. If single, your love life will be significant, allowing many different people into your life. You could also discover that you make a new circle of friends. Your innate traits and characteristics appeal to someone who loves to chat and share. If attached, the two of you love to spend isolated time together, whether to share some imaginative musings or to work on a mutual project and tighten it up. You often can be found out at dinner whispering and sharing like newlyweds. Go to a CAPRICORN to get good financial advice.
