Today's birthday (Tuesday, July 18, 2017) This year you move forward in your life. If you resist growing with change, you could prevent yourself from experiencing a lot of great things. If you are single, you need to be with someone who will not judge you and who loves the excitement of not knowing what could happen next. You might meet this person as soon as fall. If you are attached, the two of you might decide to make a major change in your lives. Make sure you both are on the same page, or else you could have a problem. Taurus gives you good financial advice.
