IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be enthusiastic, extravagant, a time when you feel fortune has turned in your favour. OK there will be some delays at work and you won’t always be patient at home. Try not to railroad loved ones into making changes before they are ready. Sweep them up with inspiring and motivating schemes. Be persistent if your idea are not initially accepted at work. Rethink your approach and be more positive and you’ll meet good responses.
