If you were born on August 15, people are likely to describe you as ambitious and honest. As a goal-driven Leo, your time is precious, and you don’t like interruptions. You are generous and good intentioned with your honesty, but some people may find your truth-telling to be a little too blunt.
As a Leo born on August 15, you are destined for success but don’t forget to pause and reflect every once in a while. Read on to unveil more unique traits of a Leo with a birthday on August 15th.
An August 15 Zodiac is a Person of Action
If there’s a job that needs completing, you’re likely to be one of the first to offer to help (if you haven’t already finished the task at hand). Whether in your personal or professional life, you feel most comfortable and in your element if you are busy and in charge.
As a strong-willed and passionate Leo, you have all the determination and drive to set goals and achieve them quickly, and without too many obstacles standing in your way. Many people turn to you as a reliable and trustworthy person to handle important and time-sensitive tasks.
As a person of action, you like to feel needed as it boosts your confidence and fuels your purpose. Not only are you chosen as the person to get things done because of your eagerness, but you are resourceful, energetic, and come up with great ideas and solutions on your own.
Honesty isn’t Always the Best Policy
You often “tell it like it is,” and while some people come to you for advice, others find your blunt honesty to be a little off-putting, especially if they didn’t ask for an opinion. Even though you believe that honesty is better than withholding the truth, you may benefit from thinking before you speak.
In most cases, you don’t mean to hurt or offend anyone with your honesty but sometimes you put relationships (particularly with new acquaintances) at risk because they don’t understand your good intentions.
Learning how to hold back and “filter” your honesty may take a lifetime of practice. While the people who know and love you embrace your honesty, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try to soften the blow of your blunt statements.
The Positive and Softer Side
No one can fault you for being passionate, driven, and wanting to get things done. People rarely worry about your accountability because they don’t have to; you’re always there when you say you will and complete a task.
You are a natural leader, who tackles tough decisions and motivates others around you to strive for greatness. You are warm and welcoming and always willing to help someone come up with a plan of action or to help them improve their life.
Since you are more of a leader than a follower, you are self-reliant, but you are also happy if you have the right like-minded people by your side. You aren’t afraid to set goals continuously throughout your life, and you’re likely to reach them because you don’t like the thought of unfinished work.
Some may assume that you don’t know how to have fun or are too tightly wound due to you’re “get it done” nature, but you are enthusiastic, friendly, and enjoy fun when the time is appropriate.
Traits to Work On
Your positive characteristics can take you far in life, but like most Leos, you benefit from working on some of your negative traits. As someone who is driven by goals and challenges, you may be open to change, but chances are you don’t recognize your characteristics as needing to change.
Apart from learning how to tame your honesty when it’s appropriate, it’s important to relax and learn to go with the flow a little more often. As someone who is constantly busy and dislikes idle time, you often get frustrated people who don’t work quickly or see the value of your goals.
You are often unapologetic for your words and actions, and while many of your decisions benefit others, you have a hard time with constructive criticism or if someone wants to do something differently. It’s important to remember that your way isn’t always the right or only way. You may want to get in the habit of talking less and listening more.
As someone who values your time, you get frustrated when someone or something interrupts you time or creates a challenge that slows you down. While interruptions are often out of your control and happen without warning, you have a hard time understanding that things don’t always go your way.
The World Doesn’t Revolve Around You, Leo
Few will argue with the fact that you are smart, resourceful, and have excellent ideas. As someone who often thinks that nothing would get accomplished without you, you can often come across as arrogant and a bit of an egomaniac.
Confidence is important in life and even if you don’t think that you boast about your accomplishments, pausing for a reality check every once in a while to keep you grounded.
Everyone needs validation and a pat on the back, but it’s best to let people thank you for doing a good job and compliment you on your achievements. Don’t fish around for compliments or feel offended if people don’t fawn all over you.
Use your power and talents for good rather than allowing it to alienate you from others. Don’t forget to practice humility on occasion.
Your Professional Life
Some Leos born on August 15th are happy to raise a family and be a stay-at-home parent. They may run a “tight ship,” but life will be organized, harmonious, and full of opportunity. As a Leo in the workforce, you can do virtually any type of work that interests you. Since you are ambitious, you work hard to learn specific skills, and you learn on the job quickly.
As someone who is ambitious and not afraid to take the lead, you excel in a leadership position or in a career where you work independently. Some professions where you may excel and enjoy include, but are limited to:
- Entertainment business
You are more likely to enjoy and excel at a career that allows and encourages you to be a leader or to give input and ideas regularly. You are more attracted to a profession that uses talents that you already have and allows you to be social, but you aren’t afraid to learn new skills as long as it’s worth your time and effort.
Leo’s Love Life
As a Leo with a birthday on August 15th, you like to stay busy, but you’re not opposed to finding love. You are attractive, charming, and energetic, which draws many admirers. Given your magnetism, you may fall in love at an early age and many times throughout your lifetime.
You fall in love quickly, but your most harmonious and healthy relationships are likely to be with someone that you’re friends with first. True love takes time and patience, and as someone who likes to get things done quickly, you might struggle with being patient and getting to know someone.
Not taking the time to choose your love partner carefully can result in disappointment and a broken heart. Even if you invest your time getting to know someone through traditional courtship, there’s no guarantee that your relationship will last.
When you emotionally invest yourself in someone who doesn’t work out, it may feel like a waste of time and leave you feeling resentful and jaded for a while.
It may take some time to find your forever partner, but when you do and if you decide to get married, you will be a dedicated spouse. As a parent, you are attentive, and your children will thrive and do well because of your dedication to parenting.
If you are not ready for a relationship, it will become apparent in your feelings towards the other person. You are likely to become impatient with your partner and feel the need to micromanage them. If your partner in love seems more than a hassle or burden, you aren’t ready for a relationship.
Sometimes a relationship doesn’t work because you are simply not a good match, but as a Leo, you struggle with letting go of your ego. If you can’t handle the give and take of a relationship, it’s not your time to be looking for love.
You like to be doted on, admired, and even spoiled. You are likely to do the same for someone you truly care about, but if you expect more than you give, you need to step back and reassess your intentions.
Leos with a birthday on August 15th are most compatible with an Aquarius, Aries, and Sagittarius as you have the most in common with these zodiac signs. You will spend less time trying to explain who you are and they are more likely to love you as you are, stubborn and outspoken.
Lucky Color, Birthstone, and Flower
Even confident and ambitious Leos benefit from reminders on how to connect with their positive traits and keep their negative traits in check.
As an energetic and driven Leo, your lucky color is orange. Orange represents enthusiasm, vitality, endurance, and even fiery tempers. As you surround yourself with your lucky color, use it as a reminder to do good and keep your temper in check. Orange is a reminder that you are not perfect and can always benefit from self-reflection, growth, and improvement.
The birthstone for the August 15 Zodiac is a Ruby, which represents dedication and romance. Rubies are also known to relax and help the wearer of Rubies to have an open mind and communicate, especially in social situations. As a Leo who likes to say what’s on your mind, a Ruby can be a reminder to do more listening and less talking (and be more mindful overall).
You may find a connection with Sunflowers, as they represent Leos who are born on August 15. Sunflowers are happy, lively, and can help boost confidence. Plant sunflowers in your garden or decorate your home with the flower.
Self-Care is Important
As a “go-getter,” you may put your own health and needs on hold to make sure everyone else in your life is cared for and tasks are finished. In order to stay healthy, it’s important to find a balance in your motivation and drive that makes time for regular exercise and eating well.
You may be prone to stress and other emotional health issues. You thrive under pressure, but you are likely to face frustration and stress from time to time. Being a busy Leo doesn’t mean that you should be a martyr and sacrifice what’s good for your physical and mental health.
Your Happiness is Dependent on Balance
You may be happiest when you are busy, in charge, and feel as though you are needed. You thrive when you imagine people not being able to function without your help. While you are a unique who has a lot to offer to nearly every situation, you can set yourself up for disappointment and unhappiness.
Life is not simply about getting things done and taking the lead. Every person of action needs to take a break, unwind, and let the world go on without worrying if things are being done correctly. Once you find a balance in your life, you are likely to find true happiness and harmony.
