August 16 Birthday Horoscope
August 16 Zodiac Sign - Leo
Being a Leo born on August 16th, you are known for your stubbornness, ambition and honesty. You prefer to do things your way and sometimes meet others with great opposition when this preference is challenged. You meet your goals with the same determination and as a result, you are highly driven towards success. In dealing with others, you are brutally honest at times. Although they may feel you are a bit too straightforward and blunt at times, your honestly is still valued by your family and friends.
August 16 Birthday Element - Fire
Your sign’s paired element is fire and as a Leo, you have the most fundamental connection with the element. When you make a goal, the influence of fire causes you to take on a goal-oriented path with enthusiasm and passion. Likewise, the undying flame inside you is also responsible for your general confidence and fortitude. These qualities of fire are key to many of your strengths, but fire’s influence can become a weakness, if you become to impulsive or impatient.
August 16 Ruling Planet - Sun
The Sun is the Leo’s planetary ruler, but because you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the planetary influence of Mars. The Sun’s power manifests in your creative and individualistic nature, but the Mars’ power is reflected in your highly assertive and active qualities. The Sun and Mars pair to make you for more ambitious than other Leo Decans. You have the tools to creatively accomplish your goals. Your greatest challenge may be the dark qualities of your planetary influence, which includes the aggression, violence and restlessness of Mars. Stay positive and optimistic in your dealings, and you will continue to propel yourself on a successful path.
