Personality traits of persons born on August 21

The zodiac sign Leo rules the archetypal structure of people born on August 21, and the ruling planet of this day is Jupiter, which describes certain aspects of what symbolizes the meaning behind the traits of these people. These energies combined amplify the specific aspects of the personality and make them unique in comparison to the general characteristics of other Leo individuals. 

Jupiter brings influences of expansion and greatness wherever it has an impact, which on these particular individuals affects the existing optimistic nature. This adds a desire for growth, free expression, and finding achievement in life.

Their natural ruler is the Sun, which is the planet that rules a person’s courage, creativity, conscious mind, and self-esteem. They get a lot done because these strengths are used with discipline, focus, and a commitment to their decisions. Typical to their Sun sign’s archetype is that these Leos are ambitious, and especially with Jupiter by their side, they are not afraid to aim high and desire expansion.

They yearn for knowledge and perceive every opportunity as a lesson of growth. These people are witty, energetic, friendly, honest about their motives and intentions, and great communicators.

The number twenty-one and Jupiter are closely related to each other, and both represent joy, humor, expansion, youthfulness, versatility, and expression. That is why these Leo individuals will show their natural archetypal role as inspirationally bright beings by holding the traits mentioned above with strength and confidence.

The only thing these people might need to work on mainly in life is their tendency to show phobic or repressed moods when they feel offended or hurt by betrayal. Loyalty is an essential value in their life, and they thrive on being recognized for their ability to show up in their best version and always do their best to be an inspiring example of joy and strength. 

When they are not received fully or seen in a different light than what they intended, these people can take another person’s comment personally and easily fall into their tendency to be reactive, defensive, and overcompensate a sense of insecurity with authoritarianism behavior. Overreacting is one tendency they would benefit most from to heal. 

Their traits are enhanced and broad, and they need to allow themselves the ease of mind to let things pass by and not trigger them. They have a beautiful fire burning inside them that, in favorable situations, brings forth passion, determination, and a lot of romantic joy. However, as equally powerful those qualities are, so can the opposite be and show up in a moody character, sulky, or described by melodramatic behavior. 

Luckily August 21, people have the talent to control opposing sides within themselves with care and thoughtfulness. They are responsible for their own life and take the lessons about their behavior seriously. 

How love is experienced by persons born on August 21

In relationships, Leo people are often caring, dependable, and passionate. They are the kind of partners who will share unbridled adoration and generosity. That is, if their partner honors their most important values of loyalty and trust. 

They will attract people with their sensitivity and radiant charisma, but their adventurous spirit.

Learning in life and being able to express themselves freely is vital to them; that is why they need to be with someone that is open-minded and carries traits of curiosity, reliability, and a willingness to be faithful. If they can feel free and remain independent with someone, they are willing and able to be good teammates. Betraying trust is one of the most dangerous things that can be done to a Leo individual.

Fire being their natural element and Jupiter ruling spaciousness, these individuals will likely benefit significantly from focussing on their breath and the wellbeing of their internal clarity. 

Significantly hindering feelings, aggregation, and sensations of overwhelm are better to be contained and tamed, for it can affect their reactivity and the stress levels within.
