September 23 22 October 22
You are both attractive and upbeat individuals and this can create a strong and loving union.
Don’t get over-confident
If you get caught up in your own brilliance it can backfire because you start to think your way is the only way. Nobody wants to help those who appear so self-sufficient that they don’t need help.
People born on August 15 tend to be blessed with great self-confidence and courage, giving them a commanding or imposing presence whatever situation they are in. Others look to them for leadership and enjoy basking in their regal presence.
These people have such great self-belief that even if they find themselves in a situation where they are out of their depth they will still be able to convince others that they are the right person for the job or responsibility. Their optimism and ambition are magnanimous enough to include all those close to them, as well as co-workers, and they will never be reluctant to share their success. They are powerful role models but sometimes others may feel that they are losing themselves and their identity in the mighty shadow of these people.
It is important for them to learn to cooperate with their fellow human beings and to grant other people a chance to give their opinion or make their contribution. If they don’t do this, they run they risk of becoming controlling in their domination. Until the age of thirty-seven there is an emphasis in their lives on practical order and efficiency, particularly in their working lives, and they need to make sure that their need for adoration does not lead to an inflated ego. They also should ensure that they listen very carefully to what other people are trying to tell them, as listening will earn them greater support and respect than commanding.
After the age of thirty-eight there is a turning point that highlights the importance of relationships and creativity, and this can stimulate them to develop any latent musical, artistic or literary talents. Throughout their lives, however, the key to their success will be their ability to empathize with others and to recognize that the right to personal autonomy is not their sole preserve. Once they are able to develop this awareness, not only will they be able to realize their ambitious and progressive visions, they will be able to lead and inspire others.
On the dark side
Aggressive, egotistical, insensitive
At your best
Generous, imposing, decisive
Love Intensely passionate
People born on August 15 are passionate and popular individuals with natural charisma. They seek a partner who can inspire them and share their interests. In close relationships they can be generous, warm and supportive, but they need to be careful that they don’t become too controlling or possessive and give their partners a chance to voice their feelings.
Health Laughter is the best medicine
People born on this day have a tendency to take themselves a little too seriously and it is important for them to find more time for fun and laughter. This is because laughter not only helps them relax, it can also reduce the stress to which they are prone. In keeping with their regal presence, they also tend to have expensive tastes and may over-indulge in delicious foods. This can not only lead to weight gain, it can increase the risk of heart disease, so it is important for them to find other ways to satisfy cravings, such as exercise, phoning a friend or writing in a journal. All forms of exercise are recommended, including less common activities such as horse riding or rock climbing. Variety is the key to keeping their interest in activity alive and their physiques in shape. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the colors pink and green will encourage them to be more magnanimous to others.
Career Born leaders
These people are, above all, natural leaders so they will flourish in any career that gives them the freedom to make their own decisions and take charge of others. Careers they may be drawn to include sales, marketing, promotion, education, lecturing, acting, performing, and public speaking. As excellent fighters for a cause, they may also be drawn to careers such as law, being a spokesperson, or labor union leadership. Similarly, their humanitarian instincts could guide them to counseling and social work, or they may prefer to be self-employed.
Destiny To lead and inspire others
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to combine their natural talent for leadership with compassion. Once they are able to moderate their commanding approach, their destiny is to lead and inspire others.
“Being compassionate connects me to my higher self which is my true nobility”
