If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Grace Jones (1948) shares your birthday. You like to improve things and help others because you care about the world you live in. You take a rational, practical approach to life. You have strong opinions and are ready to defend them. What you achieve this year will be the result of hard work. Simplicity will be the key to this year.
