HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, July 4, 2019:

This year, you open up to new possibilities. Once you get a project going, you'll resent any interference. Understand that to others, you could seem demanding. If you're single, decide whether you want to date, and make time for that pastime. If you're attached, make a point of drawing your significant other close by sharing more of your outside life. Remember how important this bond might be. LEO knows how to encourage you to have a good time.
