IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be a time to aim high ambition-wise and to pull yourself away from restricting ties at home and elsewhere. Your rebellious mood may not go down too well with certain close partners, but you’ll be in no mood to compromise. You’ll have a sense that you’re starting a new phase of your life and be planning with great optimism. The world will seem a luckier and more generous place for you. Be persistent if you feel unheard.
