Happy Birthday to those of you celebrating a birthday during the month of August!
August babies are either Leos or Virgos, and there is a lot to like about people born under both those signs. Leos are confident and are very strong, both physically and mentally—they are quite strong-willed. Leos are also very proud and charismatic people who often rise to leadership roles. Virgos also have many appealing personality traits. For example, Virgos are organized, very precise and detail orientated. They are reliable as well as being practical people. Virgos, born near the end of the month of August, are also charismatic, but theirs is a quiet charisma. Leo and Virgo children are very smart. Combine that intelligence with their headstrong approach to life and they’re unstoppable.
Many popular celebrities and leaders were born in August. To name a few, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Neil Armstrong, Charlize Theron, Hulk Hogan, Tom Brady, as well as Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Lyndon B. Johnson.
There are no national holidays celebrated during the month of August. If you want to celebrate something in addition to your birthday, National Book Lover’s Day is August 9th and Lazy Day is August 10th. National Senior Citizens Day is August 21st. International Beer Day is celebrated on August 5th.
The birthstone for August is the peridot, a beautiful stone that is typically several shades of green and symbolizes a great year to come! August’s flower is the gladiolus which represents integrity.
We hope you enjoy your August birthday!!
