Happy birthday for Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015:

This year you often go back and forth between different points of view. This behavior is unusual for you, as you generally are very clear about what you think and how you feel. You seem to be gaining more insight into others and their motives. You also see more possibilities than in the past. If you are single, the ability to see past the obvious enhances your dating potential. If you are attached, the two of you move to a new level of understanding because of your ability to walk in each other's shoes. You have the skills and wisdom to make peace more often and walk away from dissension. Pisces creates some interesting scenarios with his or her imagination.

The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5 dynamic, 4 positive, 3 average, 2 so-so, 1 difficult
