August 29 Zodiac Sign

August 29 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Your birthday suggests that you are charismatic, warm, and ambitious, possessing a keen intellect and an enterprising spirit. Independent and success- oriented, you like to be active and think in grandiose terms. You may, however, have to avoid getting emotionally carried away or going to extremes.

With the subinfluence of Virgo, your decanate ruler, you possess a sharp, practical mind and are often a perfectionist. You are likely to pay attention to detail and want to refine your work. Nevertheless, you may need to refrain from continuously mulling over issues, since this can cause anxiety. Fortunately, your thirst for knowledge and a love of learning can keep you mentally occupied and stop you from becoming oversensitive.

Sociable and generous, you do well in people-related activities. Mind-broadening travel can be especially positive and bring you many new contacts. Possessing organizational skills and being adventurous, you also have the ability to make money. By applying the needed self- discipline, you can bring out your marvelous potential.

As dynamic and charming as you can be, sometimes you may become insecure, withdrawing to isolate yourself. By reconnecting to your intuition and idealistic vision, you soon return to being enthusiastic and creative.

From childhood you have been practical, analyzing situations in order to understand and improve them. After the age of twenty-four, as your progressed Sun moves into Libra for a thirty-year period, there is an increased need for partnership and relating. Your creative abilities are enhanced and you may develop any latent musical, artistic, or literary interests. Around the age of fifty-four you reach another life turning point as your progressed Sun enters Scorpio. This brings a strong emphasis on your emotional need for change, deeper awareness, and inner power.

Your Secret Self


With your wealth of knowledge, you often possess a special gift for the written or spoken word and inspire and entertain others with your ideas. Although you are stimulated by intelligence, an inner restlessness may encourage you to explore many avenues in order to avoid becoming bored. Sensitive and imaginative, you possess a strong desire for freedom, but may have to beware of becoming a self-indulgent dreamer who fails to make your grand plans a reality.

Since you can become very passionate when really interested in a project, it is important to find an activity you love, then do it well. If too impatient, you may become distracted and take action without thinking or making the proper plans. At your best, you are optimistic, enthusiastic, and able to fulfill your high promise.

Work & Vocation


Ambitious, with leadership abilities, you may fare better in a position of management or working for yourself. At the least, you need as much freedom as possible within a job to operate in your own way. In order to avoid monotony, variety and change are necessary in any occupation you undertake. Your people skills aid you in any career you choose, and your emotional understanding and innate wisdom could take you into the caring professions or work that helps others. Your keen intellect could also lead you to education, law, science, writing, or politics. Alternatively, your practicality and enterprise may find an outlet in business or manufacturing. With your imagination and creativity, and with the right opportunities, you also could be very successful in the world of music and entertainment.
