August 22 Horoscope

Being a Leo born on August 22nd, you are well known for your ambitious, honest and social nature. You have friends that struggle to find motivation, but you have never shared in this problem. You never fail to set new goals and challenges for yourself and you will work tirelessly to meet these goals. Your ambition is paired well with an honesty and straightforwardness. If your loved ones didn't know you so well, they would find a bit of harshness in your honesty. You sometimes fail to notice when you offend others with your bluntness, instead wishing that they would speak to you the same way.

Fire is your sign's paired element and as a Leo, you are the only zodiac sign with a cardinal relationship to the element. Fire's influence is obvious when your passion and enthusiasm emerge. Whenever confronted with a challenge, no matter how great, your flame burns with fortitude as you reach your goals. These qualities of fire should be highly valued, but you should be aware of the dangers of impatience and impulsiveness that are amongst fire's negative qualities.

Leo's are ruled by the Sun, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the planetary influence of Mars. The Sun's influence over creativity and willpower are matched with Mars' influence over assertiveness and vigor. As a result of these two unique influences, you are far more success-oriented than the other Leo Decans. Your ambition is your greatest strength, but if handled without care it can become a weakness. To avoid the aggression that comes with blind ambition, take care to enjoy the less serious sides of life to put everything in perspective. As long as you remain in control and stay positive, you will continue on a path to certain success.

Your determined and honest personality creates a variety of viable career paths for you to follow. The world of advertising or marketing would be well-matched with your commitment to excellence. Your strong will may make owning your own business the most desirable path, as you would not have to listen to anyone but yourself. Your creativity may lead you to follow a more artistically focused path. If you enjoy writing, look to the vision of Ray Bradbury, who was also born on August 22nd, for inspiration. Entertainment may also be your passion, which was the case for Cindy Williams, another of your birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an unsealed letter. It may be a hard fact to accept, but even the most private ideas or messages find their way into the public's view. While this could cause you to shy away from sharing things, you should instead develop confidence in your ideas. Have faith in positivity and goodness, as these qualities are intertwined with man.
