If 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!
