August 21 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Eager to achieve and action-oriented, you are a dynamic and versatile Leo with an ambitious nature and strong instincts. Usually proud and mentally quick, you are curious and determined to get your own way. Your optimistic outlook and spirit of enterprise urge you to live life to the fullest. This enthusiasm also suggests that you need to express your individuality in a creative way.
Although the subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Aries, adds vitality and drive to your personality, it also implies that you can act hastily or become bored easily. You may need to avoid being impulsive and initiating projects without planning in advance. The great potential indicated by your birthday also implies that you need to positively channel your energies to overcome your tendency to be dissatisfied.
You usually need constant mental stimulation and can entertain others with your quick wit and lively repartee. With your persuasive speech and sense of the dramatic, you can usually get your way by enchanting others. You do not suffer fools easily, however, and at times you can be too outspoken, selfish, or arrogant. Although you are multitalented and enjoy being active, you can gain from developing one particular skill and are likely to find great advantages through education and learning.
At the beginning of your life your progressed Sun moves into the sign of Virgo. Over the next thirty years you are apt to be influenced by this sign’s qualities of practicality, criticism, and perfectionism. You may gradually become interested in being more efficient in your work environment. At the age of thirty-one you reach a turning point as your progressed Sun enters Libra. This brings a growing awareness of the importance of your relationships. Your creative abilities are enhanced, and you may be drawn to develop latent musical, artistic, or literary interests. When you reach the age of sixty-one, your progressed Sun enters Scorpio to highlight issues of personal power and transformation. This influence can also deepen your awareness and feelings.
Your Secret Self
Although your emotional sensitivity can make you very intuitive, it can also sometimes pull you in different directions. One part of you wants new and exciting things, and the other wants security and stability. If not constructively channeled, this can make you restless, unsettled, or prone to escapist tendencies. By continually having a positive plan for something new and uplifting, you avoid becoming cynical or rebellious. Pursuing your ideals and desire for truth stimulates you to be generous, compassionate, and humanitarian.
Frank and honest, you expect the same from others, but although you can be loving and caring, you may have to guard against a tendency to sarcasm. Travel and higher education can be excellent avenues for you to discover the more adventurous side of your nature. Since you are endowed with charm and spontaneity, you may also like to explore the hidden artistic or creative talents that are associated with your birthday.
Work & Vocation
As you assimilate knowledge very quickly on any subject that holds your interest, you may need variety to keep you continually challenged. Your lively intellect may draw you to a career in education, writings or publishing. Ideally, you should be in an occupation that utilizes your excellent people skills, and if this involves foreign countries or change, then so much the better. Alternatively, your desire for self-expression can lead you to the art, music, or entertainment world, and sport can also be a positive outlet for your need for action.
Famous people who share your birthday include Princess Margaret, jazz pianist Count Basie, illustrator Aubrey Beardsley, singer Kenny Rogers, and basketball player Wilt Chamberlain.
