August 1 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Leadership, ambition, and a dramatic personality are indicated by your birthday. As a Leo, you are creative, with strong intuitive powers and a forceful demeanor. Although your adventurous nature seeks self-expression, a strong pragmatic view and concern for security suggest a materialistic overtone. This indicates that while idealism and vision play important roles in your life, worries about money or the lack of it keep your feet firmly on the ground. Nevertheless, you are a kind-hearted individual with strong emotions, humanitarian inclinations, and leadership abilities.
With the added influence of your decanate ruler, Leo, you are proud and dignified and can influence others through your natural executive abilities. Observant and perceptive, you have a good sense of values and are often resourceful. Quick to learn, you soon turn your interests and creative endeavors into successful commercial enterprises. By marketing your talents, you can impress others with your determination and organizational skills.
Generous, chivalrous, and assured, yet demanding and tense, is how others may describe you. This indicates that, due to emotional insecurity, you sometimes hide your true feelings. Loyal, diligent, and dependable, you take pride in your work. Although you can use your forceful speech to your advantage, a sharp tongue and an inclination to be overly dominant may undermine your great efforts.
When you are around the age of twenty-one, your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, commencing a thirty-year period of increased emphasis on order, efficiency, work, and health. You are also likely to gain an enhanced mental awareness of practical problem solving. Another turning point for you occurs around the age of fifty-one, when your progressed Sun moves into Libra, stimulating you to cooperate more with others, be diplomatic, and place more emphasis on creativity and partnerships.
Work & Vocation
Determined and strong-willed, you are liable to have an original approach to your career unless you settle for security below your outstanding potential. With your natural executive and leadership abilities, you should be in a managerial position or be given the freedom to work with some degree of independence. Possessing a fine mind and a flair for the technical or analytical, you can excel in anything from science to writing and performing. Being very creative may inspire you to delve into the art or music world, where your shrewd ability to assess situations can help you commercialize your talents. Your ability to push through some kind of reform may attract you to work in organizations with a social conscience.
Famous people who share your birthday include musician Jerry Garcia, fashion designer Yves Saint-Laurent, actor Dom DeLuise, and author Herman Melville.
