August 7 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Idealistic, hardworking, and charming, you are charismatic, though reserved, with sound common sense. This birthday reveals you to be an artistic or creative Leo, with a kind heart and a strong sense of duty. The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Sagittarius, suggests that while you are usually frank and honest and a supporter of the less fortunate, there is a danger that in your dealings with others you may adopt a self-righteous or arrogant tone.

Your optimism and grand dreams are your motivating force and relate to your active and constructive mind. You may, however, need to develop a more realistic approach and overcome a tendency either to be overly optimistic or to harbor self-destructive thoughts. Among your many attributes is your ability to think in broad terms and be very persuasive.

Balancing between motivation and inertia, you desire success and prosperity, but without the right kind of support you may become easily discouraged or drift aimlessly until something or someone sparks your imagination. By practicing patience and persistence and keeping a positive mental attitude, you are guaranteed to achieve your objectives and well-earned success.

After the age of fifteen, when your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, there is an increased need for practical order in your day-to-day existence. You will be more inclined to analyze things and look for ways to restructure and improve your life. This continues until the age of forty-five, when your progressed Sun enters Libra. As a turning point for you, this highlights the growing importance of relationships, creativity, and harmony. When you are age seventy- five your progressed Sun enters Scorpio, emphasizing the importance of personal power and transformation.
