August 9 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Intuition, imagination, and pragmatism are some of the qualities associated with your birthday. As a Leo, you are usually confident, charming, and generous, though you also possess a sensitive nature.

The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Sagittarius, suggests that by combining inspiration and enthusiasm with hard work, you are able to take advantage of opportunities that provide you with financial protection. This also indicates that money will never be your major problem, but in order to truly profit from this celestial benefactor, you have to put a strong emphasis on values and develop a responsible attitude.

Socially oriented, friendly, and gregarious, with a concern for the well-being of others, you have many acquaintances whom you support and encourage. The more inspired among you can be great humanitarians who devote their time and effort to good causes and charitable organizations.

Although you can concentrate with determination on the job at hand, you are often creative, with many interests. The pride you take in your work can also carry the sign of the perfectionist. Be careful that this sense of duty and self-control does not make you overly concerned with economy.

From childhood you are likely to be interested in social activities and developing your leadership abilities by being at the center of things. From the age of thirteen onward, as your progressed Sun moves into Virgo for a thirty-year period, you gradually become more conscientious and discriminating and react more efficiently to your working environment. At the age of forty-three you reach a turning point as your progressed Sun enters Libra. This brings a strong emphasis on your social relationships and partnerships. Your creative abilities are enhanced, and you may be drawn to develop your musical, artistic, or literary interests. When you are age seventy-three, your progressed Sun moves into Scorpio, highlighting issues concerning deep emotional change and transformation.

Your Secret Self

Although you want material security, you may feel restless or impatient if your desire for excitement, action, or exploring new experiences is restricted.

Your work is frequently an important key to feeling that you are fulfilling yourself and building something positive for the future.
