August 20 zodiac sign horoscope

Personality traits of persons born on August 20

The Sun is accountable for the specification of the characteristics and typical traits in the personality of Leo individuals. The reigning celestial body, influenced by numerological synchronicity, connects this zodiacal sign with a specific set of influential elements connected to the number twenty. 

Dates and their connection to a certain planet’s symbolism rule the second aspect that explains the noticeable difference between individuals falling in the same zodiacal group. In their case, this is the gentle and receptive Moon. This celestial body has strong feminine energy and rules the emotions, and enhances a person’s empathy towards other people.

Those born on August 20 often carry a calmness and serenity with their presence and have an ample sincerity within their unique charisma.

They have a perseverant streak and take their time not to rush anything but instead remain cautious and make appropriate decisions to base their actions upon. This is a powerful and unique quality that will support their ability to achieve many of their dreams and goals in life. And it also soothes their sensitivity towards feeling pressured or hasty, which can cause them to experience nervous tension and anxiety.

They are highly dependable individuals and thus make great friends, partners, and even mentors. The talent to embody the last role is a result of their inspirational presence and ability always to see the best in other people. Typical to the Leo-archetype is that August 20 individuals are very supportive and optimistic in life, and they like to see and encourage as much brightness in others as they do within themselves. 

Feeling validated and acknowledged in their good intentions and power is something dear to the Leo archetype because it is the confirmation of who they believe they are that allows them to trust in themselves and keep moving in the direction that to them makes life worth living.

Sometimes they crave attention too strongly, which results in feelings of disappointment or loneliness when they can’t receive it from their environment. They tend to resort to escapism if such feelings become overbearing. This is due to the Moon’s emotional impact. It rules the flow of water and energy, thus increasing the intensity of whatever these people experience within.
