Happy birthday for Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015:

This year you blossom into a more dynamic and creative person. You are likely to become more of a problem-solver as a result. This will be helpful, as there will be issues surrounding your domestic life. You also might decide to establish a home-based business. If you are single, you could meet someone quite easily, even in the next week. This person will be significant to your next year, if not longer. If you are attached, you will experience a newfound closeness within your relationship. Taurus can be a stick in the mud.
