IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Whenever you feel hemmed in by rules and responsibilities during the upcoming two to three weeks, your mind may wander to something like walking hand in hand with a loved one on white sands under blue skies. You may resent that you can’t take a romantic vacation now, but by using shrewd financial tactics in late June, you will have the means to relax in July. Plan excursions and trips for July, when you might have a more carefree existence and can consider living your dreams. That is an excellent time to make new acquaintances and to widen your social network, too. Put your most important matters into motion in August, when your judgment is better than usual and when you should have ample assistance if you need it. This is also a time when you could receive a bonus or much-needed opportunity for advancement that will make your life easier for a long time to come.
