So happy to see we share the same day Birthday: Grin
Here is an advanced astrological description of our birth sign: The Sagittarius woman is vivacious, funny, self assured, and sophisticated. She probably had an opportunity to travel as a child, and will need to continue to do so throughout her life. She's a woman who needs challenges and intellectual stimulation in all parts of her life. She loves Nature and keeps lots of interesting hobbies. She's also very a good party host when it comes to entertaining.... So lets party on Monday! GrinGrinGrin

Lovely. Maybe a closer crop to "pretend" the missing hand was deliberate.
