August 31 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Your birthday shows you to be an industrious idealist with analytical skills, an active imagination, and powerful emotions. The unique combination of personal magnetism, communication skills, and determination gives you a creative flair for combining business and pleasure.

The double influence of Mercury implies clarity of vision and an ability to assimilate and analyze the smallest details. Usually articulate and discreet, you like to make up your own mind by methodical deduction. By refining and discriminating, you achieve excellence; just be careful that your pursuit for perfection does not turn into negative criticism and self- righteousness.

You have an appreciation of beauty and luxury and are likely to possess a good voice. It is through the use of your dynamic love, power, enthusiasm, and generosity that you can charm and impress others. At times you can be obstinate, withdrawn, or moody, challenging others to understand the many different facets of your personality.

Broad-minded, with a natural business sense, you communicate your values and show interest in money issues. Nevertheless, you possess an abundance of feelings and grand dreams.

A desire to transcend ordinary, mundane life may possibly manifest as an interest in metaphysical, mystical, or religious subjects. Since you can throw yourself wholeheartedly into a project if interested, you may have to be careful not to exhaust yourself by working too hard.

Your progressed Sun moves into Libra for a thirty-year period when you reach the age of twenty-two. From this time you gradually become more aware of the importance of your social relationships and partnerships. Your creative abilities and sense of harmony are enhanced and you may be drawn to develop any latent musical, artistic, or literary interests. At the age of fifty-two you reach another life turning point as your progressed Sun enters Scorpio. This brings a strong emphasis on a deeper need for emotional change, making you more self- reliant and in control.

Your Secret Self

 

Your greatest potential may lie in an inner need to shine and inspire others, flowing from your natural honesty and high idealism. When developed, this asset will help you overcome everyday difficulties. If disturbed, you could become cold and lose faith, but once back on track you display a wonderful spontaneity and openness.

Since your birthday is identified with an emotional intensity, guard against using this in power tactics, especially when you are disappointed with others. There may be a conflict between your ideals and a very different reality. The key to your success lies in your compassionate understanding of people and situations. When this concern for others is combined with your enthusiasm and social skills, you can create harmony and happiness for yourself and those around you.
