August 22 Birthday Astrology

By: Jill M. Phillips

Leos born on August 22 are thoroughbreds. They have good looks, personal charm, and plenty of class. There is a certain instability in their personality that makes them intriguing. High-strung and somewhat nervous, they thrive on attention.


Friends and Lovers

Unlike most Leos, August 22 natives don't have a lot of "people" skills. They don't make friends easily but are intensely loyal to the ones they have. Love relationships can be immensely complicated for these individuals. They are critical by nature -- a trait that can work against them at times. Once they learn to be more trusting and tolerant, their love life is sure to improve.

Children and Family

There are strong ties between August 22 individuals and their parents, even if the relationship is overshadowed by conflict and controversy in later years. Because of the dynamic characterizing the relationship with their own parents, they don't have a great deal of confidence in their parenting abilities. This changes when they have an opportunity to grow.


Although minor ailments such as allergies or nervous stomach may merely be symptomatic of their generally high-strung nature, it's important that they take steps to improve their stamina and physical well-being.

Career and Finances

August 22 natives need to come to grips with their own talents and abilities. They can benefit from the help and direction of a mentor who steers them during the early part of their career. Money management is not their strong suit. These people have a hard time keeping track of their spending habits.


Dreams and Goals

Before they can reach their goals, August 22 individuals need to learn to believe in themselves. This should not be a problem since they have so much going for them. Yet it often takes the personal validation of a close friend, family member, or colleague to make them see what is so obvious to everyone else -- that they have talent.
