The zodiacal influence for the month of August in general. Its effect on the character, disposition, finance and health of persons born in this period of the year.
The Zodiacal Sign of Leo the Lion, commences on July 21ˢᵗ, but being overlapped by the “cusp” of the previous Sign, it does not come into full power until on or about July 28ᵗʰ. From this date onwards it is in full strength until August 20ᵗʰ, it is then for seven days gradually losing strength on account of becoming overlapped by the “cusp” of the incoming Sign of Virgo.
This Sign of Leo is also called the House of the Sun. Persons born in this period of the year, namely from July 21ˢᵗ to August 20ᵗʰ and in the “cusp” to August 28ᵗʰ, have strongly marked characteristics.
They usually have large ambition, their aim is to get above the common herd of humanity and in no matter how low or humble the sphere of life into which they are born, they generally rise by their will, determination and ability, into high positions of authority in whatever career they adopt as their own.
They are keenly attracted to other strong personalities, in fact they are ready to forgive any fault in others so long as they have individuality and purpose.
People born in this period are large-hearted and generous. They have an extremely independent spirit, they detest control or being dictated to. They have much tenacity of purpose and will power, and if they put their mind on some plan, purpose or position, they usually reach their goal in spite of every difficulty or obstacle.
They have wonderful magnetic power in inspiring others on to do great deeds. Like Napoleon, born in this Sign (August 15) they attract devotion from others and can lead people to follow them through the most difficult situations.
Such persons must, however, be always actively employed. If forced by circumstances out of the heat and stress of the battle of life, they become morbid and despondent.
As a rule they are extremely patient and long-suffering, but ii once aroused, like the lion they know no fear and do not know when they meet defeat or acknowledge it if it does come.
They make enemies by their frankness of speech and their hatred of anything underhand or that savours of subterfuge. They will defend a friend in the face of all attacks; it is only treachery, disloyalty or deceit that can ever break or crush their proud spirit.
People born in this period of the year, having the vital principle of the Sun’s rays passing through the sign Leo at their birth, will manifest a high degree of ideality and aspiration. Being essentially large-hearted, honest and truthful themselves, they expect great things from those about them, and frequently get terribly disappointed and deceived.
They radiate warmth, affection, kindness and a strong personal magnetism which makes them exceedingly popular. Highly susceptible to environment, they exhibit a strong tendency to take on the habit and conditions of others.
Their exaggerated faith in human nature is their stumbling block in love and friendship, leading to many tragedies, heartaches and estrangements. They possess splendid organizing ability and great ambition, but are rather too apt to accept responsibilities and take too much on their shoulders.
They must also guard against carrying the “regal attitude” to excess, or they may become somewhat domineering.
Always striving to raise themselves from the common herd, they are naturally attracted to strong personalities and those in high positions. They are intensely proud, determined, frank and straightforward, though somewhat impetuous and quick-tempered. The will power is exceptionally strong and there is tenacity and great persistency if they feel they are in the line of work that suits them.
They at times have a tendency to despondency and dissatisfaction for not having reached the high position to which they aspire, but as they represent what may be termed the heart-force of humanity, the keynote to their character in all its phases is magnanimity, consequently they blame no one but themselves for any short-comings they may have.
The influence of the Solar Orb, the Giver of Life, upon this question renders the constitution strong and endows persons born in this period with good recuperative power, causing them to radiate vitality.
Generally speaking, their chief physical trouble is likely to proceed from irregularity of the heart-beat which tends to affect the circulation. Discordant or inharmonious surroundings will also have a detrimental effect upon their health in general.
The planetary influences governing a birth in this period of the year indicate, that at times they will be inclined to suffer with acute attacks of rheumatism when die fever will run dangerously high. Few illnesses are really indicated, but those that may come are generally difficult to cure. They will find sun baths beneficial, while plenty of fresh air will always do more good than drugs or physic. Grief or prolonged worry impairs their health more quickly than anything else.
Persons born in this period of the year are usually considered more fortunate than otherwise in all matters connected with finance. It promises success in any legitimate business they may go in for. Their financial prospects are hopeful and they are likely to gain through superiors and persons older than themselves. They quite often in their lives benefit through speculation, and through judicious investment. Their financial plans and projects should be on a large scale and favour the patronage of the general public rather than the individual. Investments connected with gold mining, brass work, diamonds, provision import and export and dealings with governments or municipal bodies should bring them good returns.
MARRIAGES, UNIONS AND PARTNERSHIPS
People born in this part of the year find most harmonious relationships with persons born in their own Sign (Leo) July 21ˢᵗ to August 20ᵗʰ, Second House of Fire; November 21ˢᵗ to December 20ᵗʰ (Sagittarius) Third House of Fire; March 21ˢᵗ to April 19ᵗʰ (Aries) First House of Fire, and in the seven days of the “cusp” at the beginning or ending of these periods, also with persons born in the opposite part of the year, in this case those born from December 21ˢᵗ to February 19ᵗʰ.
