People born on August 10 like nothing better than to please others or to win their approval. As a result they are often highly appreciated and admired, both at home and at work. They understand the importance of communication, utilizing their impressive vocal skills to persuade and influence others. In fact, their charming and energetic public persona is often cultivated with the sole purpose of impressing and delighting others.

Orientated toward others, these people seek to communicate their ideas to as many people as they can and, because their greatest desire is to be of benefit to others, their ideas are often progressive and original. Once they have convinced themselves of the merit of a course of action, they will pursue it with tenacity and courage. Determined to make their voice heard and to draw the attention of others to what they have to say, they are hard to ignore.

However, because they put such a high priority on what others think of them they will often put on a happy face, regardless of how they are feeling. Although this makes them very popular, it can deny others the chance to get to know the real person behind the mask. They spend very little time getting to know themselves and what they really want out of life, and their lack of self-awareness can make them place unrealistic expectations on themselves.

Until the age of forty-two they will often place great emphasis on order, work and efficiency. These are years when they are most likely to focus on how much they are appreciated and, because of this, they can suffer greatly when they encounter rejection or setbacks. Discovering what their strengths and weaknesses are will help them gain in confidence and resilience. After the age of forty-three there is a turning point which places more emphasis on relationships and creativity and, if they can learn to open up emotionally to themselves and others, these are the years when they are likely to develop the necessary self-confidence and conviction to ensure that their message becomes an effective instrument of progress.

Love Striking a balance

Although the popular and attractive people born on August 10 have no problems attracting admirers, they can have problems opening up emotionally to others and they need to understand that others will still care about them even when they are feeling low.

Health Let your stress out

To appear strong, people born on this day will often try to hide their struggles. The less willing they are to share their problems with loved ones, however, the more these problems are likely to overwhelm them, with a negative impact on their life and health. It is therefore important for them to cope with stress by talking more about their problems and frustrations. They also need to pay a little less attention to how they look; it is their internal rather than external health that should be their main concern. They can best take care of their internal health by opening up emotionally and also by making sure that they eat healthily and exercise regularly. This will help them cope better with stress and help them keep their weight down, so that they aren’t at risk of heart disease or circulatory problems. Wearing, meditation on and surrounding themselves with the color green will help boost their self-esteem.

Career Born speakers

The natural sense of justice and desire to help others that are characteristic of these people may draw them to political or social campaigning or to charity work, but their considerable creativity and fine communication skills will also lead them toward acting, writing, music, or art. Whatever career they choose, their creativity, sharp intelligence, fine people skills, and capacity for hard work give them the potential to rise to the top of their careers.

Destiny To make their voice and message heard

The life path of people born on this day is to strike a balance between their own and others’ needs. Once they have strengthened their self-awareness and self-esteem, their destiny is to make their voice and progressive message heard.
