Leo

Leo, how you love the spotlight! Showcasing your talents, you crave the attention you receive from others. You also understand, however, that it’s not always about you, so you enjoy shepherding others and helping them achieve their dreams as much as you do your own. Leadership is such your forte, you could write a book about it… and you probably have! With your strength of character and will to succeed, not only is the sky the limit, but you and your protégées will undoubtedly fill it as the stars you are!

Virgo 

If you’re a Virgo, you know how to get things done. With an eye for detail and instinct for order, you accomplish whatever you set your mind to. You are meticulous and love creating order out of chaos; so much so, that your specialty could be to help others organize their lives as well, whether at work or at home. Speaking of order out of chaos, your health and well-being are paramount to you, as you’re not one to let your hygiene lapse, even for a day. For you, health and happiness are most enjoyed from the inside out!

August Flower  

YOUR AUGUST BIRTHDAY!  August’s birth flower, the Gladiolus, gets its name from the Latin, gladius, or “sword,” for the leaves’ resemblance to a sword. Associated with Roman gladiators until the African Gladiolus gained in popularity, this tall bloom is a symbol of strength and integrity. Its more amorous meaning connotes “love at first sight.” Among its many uses: treating physical ailments as the corms (stem) were turned into a poultice and applied to affected areas; was also used to extract thorns and splinters, as well as treat colic when mixed with goat’s milk.

August Birthstone  YOUR AUGUST BIRTHDAY!

Your birthstone, the peridot, has two possible name origins: faridat, Arabic for “gem,” and peridona, which translated from Greek mean “to give richness.” Believed to have originated from the TopazosIsland (now the Zabargad / St. John’sIsland) in the Egyptian Red Sea, the green gemstone has been mined for over 3,000 years. Renowned for its healing properties, it’s considered ideal for respiratory health. Also known for its protective properties, it’s said to boost prosperity and fame. Although it can be made into jewelry, peridot wears down easily and isn’t considered ideal for decoration. Still, with its rich olive shade, it is sought out by collectors.

Your August Birthday

Your August BirthdayIf you’re an August birthday baby, you’re an enthusiastic, energetic, honest and optimistic person.  Like the strong leader you are, you inspire those around you to greatness, tapping into the best they have to offer and reminding them of their own power.  You have considerable power yourself which is fueled by the sun and by your overflowing sense of sympathy for others.

You love doing work that is healthy and meaningful and you always work hard to overcome  any obstacles.  You take it upon yourself to create the opportunity to achieve your desired goals.  You have the heart of a lion and you share it with  kindness and confidence.

Your flower is the gladiolus, which comes in reds, pinks, whites, yellows and oranges, but which symbolizes strength of character and sincerity.  Others look to you to lead the way and nurture their dreams, for you’re always willing to shine your light.

Your gemstone is the Peridot which is known as the “gem of the sun” because of its brilliance when seen in the desert sunlight.  It was once believed that one could even see the light from a peridot in utter darkness.  Another name for this sparkling green stone is “evening emerald” and it was said to relieve innocent sleepers of bad dreams.

The peridot was worn in ancient times as a protection against undesired enchantments and against feelings of melancholy or depression.  It also could prevent infections and evil.  It’s only right that your gemstone would also signify strength and promise.

May this year bring you greater opportunities to pursue your life purpose,  beautiful moments of inspiration and all that you need to live “sunny side up” in the days ahead.  Your tremendous spirit and gracious charms benefit everyone around you.  Celebrate being fabulous you!
