August 24 Zodiac Birthday Signs – You are mentally sharp, quiet, and self-assured, and there is more to you than meets the eye. Generally wanting things concise and direct, you can be persuasive by presenting new ideas in a logical manner. With the ability to be rational and hardworking, you often cope well with difficult situations. Your persistence and willpower are likely to show through and gain you respect and admiration from others.
The added influence of your decanate ruler, Virgo, suggests that you have quick, assertive communication and a penetrating intellect. This influence heightens your discrimination and diligence, enabling you to become an expert in your field. With your analytical approach to life, you are likely to pay attention to detail and prefer order or tidiness in your affairs. Nevertheless, guard against becoming overly fastidious or critical, or wasting your time in needless anxiety.
As you are inventive and original, new or stimulating experiences can enrich your life. Humanitarian inclinations may inspire you to promote freedom or progressive reforms. Being courageous and competitive, you may fight difficult but successful battles to overcome threatening situations. However, you may have to avoid occasionally becoming touchy, irritable, or provocative. Physical exercise may prove a positive antidote to counterbalance any excessive mental strain.
When you reach the age of twenty-nine, your progressed Sun moves into Libra, commencing a thirty-year period of increased emphasis on your partnerships, both personally and professionally. This is a time when you also have an increased sense of beauty and harmony in your relationships and may want to develop any creative potential you possess. Another turning point occurs at the age of fifty-nine, when your progressed Sun moves into Scorpio, stimulating you to seek deeper meaning to your life and placing more emphasis on making changes.

PRIMARY STAR’S INFLUENCE
Regulus is a royal star that takes a leading role among a nearly infinite cast of stars. Regulus imparts nobility, high honors, great charisma, and the power to project a dignified personality. This Star bestows a natural ability to make quick decisions and cope with demanding situations. It also imparts a desire for power and an ability to lead and command others. You have strong willpower and a love of enterprise, which often lead to a desire for freedom and independence. Regulus warns that these great benefits are not necessarily long- lasting.
Linked to your Sun’s degree, this star imparts ambition, power; authority, and opportunities to rise to a high position in government or large corporations. If you do not have a position of prominence, you probably have influential friends. This star suggests that you should be kind to others on your way up, as you are likely to meet them on your way down.
• Positive; high-spirited, frankness, courage, honor and riches, rise to prominent positions, authority
• Negative: stubborn, unruly, domineering, greatness but also great failures (especially through dishonesty), fleeting success and fame

Your Secret Self
Intense inner forces may cause you to alternate between extremes of uncertainty and a sense of being someone special. Cultivate positive thinking, trust your deeper intuitive understanding, and avoid periods of worry or doubt. Luckily, your wry sense of humor prevents you from taking yourself or others too seriously, easing any possible emotional tensions. With your high ideals, sense of the dramatic, and potential for leadership, you have the power to capitalize on your innate talents.
Because you are very sensitive, your relationships are likely to be especially important to you. It may be necessary to keep a balance between becoming overly dependent on others and staying independent. If you lose this balance, you may find that you may alternate between being optimistic and despondent. Consequently, it is important to keep open lines of communication with others.
Work & Vocation
A need to share your knowledge may be fulfilled in academic professions such as teaching or lecturing or through the world of promotion. Alternatively, your leadership abilities, organizational skills, and strategic planning ability may place you in the world of commerce. A love of detail and thoroughness often makes you an excellent researcher, scientist, financial analyst, or accountant. Being a hardworking and practical idealist may draw you to work in the community or in caring for the elderly. Attractions to professions such as counseling, health, and communications can also fulfill your humanitarian interests. Being a natural psychologist, you may be drawn toward occupations that involve personal contacts. You are likely to do particularly well with property or real estate.
Famous people who share your birthday include supermodel Claudia Schiffer, Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, painter George Stubbs, writers Jorge Luis Borges and A. S. Byatt, and baseball player Cal Ripken Jr.
The emotional sensitivity of the number 24 birthday suggests that you seek balance and harmony. You are also receptive to form and structure and can easily create a complex yet efficient system. Faithful and fair, you are inclined to be undemonstrative, believing that actions speak louder than words. The main challenge for a number 24 birthday is to learn to associate with people from all walks of life, to overcome suspicious tendencies, and to build a secure home. The subinfluence of the number 8 month indicates that you are mentally active and conscientious, with a responsible attitude. You may need, however, to guard against destructive behavior, which can be interpreted by others as stubbornness. By learning to be light-hearted and expressive with your feelings, you often overcome a tendency to be overly serious. A pragmatic approach to life also gives you good business sense and an ability to achieve material success in life.
• Positive: energetic, idealistic, practical skills, strong determination, honest, frank, fair, generous, love of home, active
• Negative: materialistic, too economical, ruthlessness, dislikes routine, lazy, unfaithful, unstable, domineering, stubborn
Love & Relationships
You are likely to have a youthful side that will keep you constantly interested in new people and new places. Love and companionship are very important to you, but a tendency to mood swings may bring difficulties in relationships. Your need for fun makes you a good social mixer, and when relationships are based on mental affinity, they are usually successful. You may be drawn to those who can inspire your creativity or to a partner who can share your sense of humor.
