August 25 Zodiac Birthday Signs – The special influences of your birthday indicate that you possess a quick and creative mind that is constantly searching for new and exiting ideas to keep you intellectually stimulated. Strong-willed and pragmatic, yet imaginative and sensitive, you have the potential to make your ideals a reality.
With the influence of your decanate ruler, Virgo, you are likely to possess good general knowledge, to think progressively, and to love thoroughness and detail. Discriminating and methodical, you like to refine and improve on existing systems.
Mercury’s effect is evident in the way you communicate your ideas: precisely and decisively. A love of words or language may endow you with a talent for writing or help you to become a specialist in your field. You may need, however, to avoid being overcritical or worrying about small or unimportant issues.
Although you possess nervous energy, when you do have a strong belief regarding a project, you will go all out until it is complete. This same natural enthusiasm often stimulates you to become a teacher, passing on your knowledge and experience. As you are ambitious, with strong desires, beware of being bossy by projecting your will onto others.
Possessing the ability to be charming and naturally diplomatic when it is needed, you are likely to be persuasive, with an interesting voice. Women of this birthday are often independent and enjoy initiating new projects. Both men and women of this birthdate like to keep themselves busy.
From childhood you are inclined to analyze situations practically in order to understand and improve them. Your progressed Sun moves into Libra when you reach the age of twenty- eight, and over the next thirty years you gradually become more aware of the importance of your social relationships and partnerships. Creative abilities are enhanced, and you may develop any latent musical, artistic, or literary interests. At the age of fifty-eight you reach another life turning point as your progressed Sun enters Scorpio. This brings an emphasis on change, a need for greater self-awareness, and personal power.
Your Secret Self
Although you are clever and intellectual, on an inner level you possess high ideals and intense emotional sensitivity. This can make you very vulnerable, particularly in the area of your relationships, so it is vital that you keep a balance between your need for independence and the needs of others. You make an excellent friend, warm and giving to those you love, though you feel incomplete without a mutually loving partner. Although young at heart, you may experience disappointment when others fail to live up to your high ideals. When despondent, you must guard against dealing with difficulties by becoming moody or an escapist. Your longing for love may find a creative outlet in service to others, art, music, literature, or spiritual experience. Particularly sensitive to discord, you need to surround yourself with a harmonious environment.
