Happy birthday, Elsa Pataky: See her star sign and read your horoscopes
18 JULY 2014Happy birthday, Elsa Pataky! As the Spanish actress turns 38, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Elsa and you...
I am looking forward to writing your forecast for next week. I expect you will much enjoy reading it when you see it. By then, I won't need to be explaining how so much of your time is spoken for and so many people are wanting so much from you. And, because you will be feeling so much less pressured, you will be more relaxed. Meanwhile, we have a weekend to get through. Now, you are going to do all that you are told and live up to every expectation, aren't you? Thought you might say 'yes' to that. It is fine to say 'no' if you wish!
