Zodiac for August

leojuly-augs

Leo – July 23 – August 22 – is self-expression seeking confidence, ease, and honor in the social world. The house where your Leo rules is where you will be challenged to “shine”; to apply the positive, creative qualities of your sun sign, and find a sense of inner peace.

Virgo – August 23 – September – 22 – Virgo is analysis, refinement, and discrimination seeking perfection and purification of the self. This is the sign of the craftsman.  The house where your Virgo rules is where you will be challenged to analyze your feelings in a practical, unemotional way. Here is where you can serve others in a quiet, unassuming way.
