August 2 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Your charismatic personality, charm, and love of pleasure and fun are usually eclipsed by a need to succeed or a strong desire for material gains. As a Leo, you are proud and outgoing, with a youthful or childlike quality and high spirits. Although you are determined and capable, a somewhat carefree attitude may be an obstacle to your attainment of success.

With the added influence of your decanate ruler, Leo, you enjoy entertaining others and have a love of grandeur. Dramatic, you project self-assurance and have a royal air about you. Sunny and spontaneous, you are often dignified and creative. Open to praise, you need to be appreciated and admired. Guard against fair-weather friends, who only tell you what you wish to hear. High-spirited and idealistic, yet ambitious and practical, you are an interesting combination of materialism and optimism.

Although you are spontaneous by nature, a love of freedom endows you with individuality. Joint efforts and collaboration with others usually produce profits and success, and a responsible attitude on your part will not go unnoticed. In the pursuit of your dream, your personal magnetism, versatility, and popularity will play important roles, and by being adaptable, witty, and entertaining, you win the hearts of many.

From the age of twenty, when your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, there is an increasing desire for practical order, analysis, and efficiency in your life. In the following thirty years, you will feel the need to become more health-conscious or introspective. There is another turning point for you at the begining of your fifties, when your progressed Sun enters Libra. From this time you may develop a desire to be more involved in your close personal relationships, and may turn from more practical considerations to more creative ones.

Work & Vocation

All careers that use the personal touch, such as public relations, media, or counseling, can also be excellent outlets for your talents.
