A date such as the 13th of August is strangely linked to the feminine, although seemingly opposite in its setting. Its main theme is the discarded and dismissed girl inside lives of those born at this time, the fragile and emotional Self that needs to heal, cleanse, and be pure enough to handle strong energies presented by this time. It is a date of judgment and one's call to justice that is often perceived as prosperous and energetic, however demanding it might be on one's emotional state.

August 13th Horoscope

SUN – JUPITER – (Pluto) – MARS

Highly masculine and dominant in its setting, the planetary row of those born on August 13th mostly speaks of action and the importance of movement for new frontiers and challenges in life. While this might bring a lot of width and benefits their way, it is also demanding for their heart, for their expectations are grand and their ability to fulfill them often making them too tired to stay on their chosen path for long enough. This may lead to one's distance from their own inner world, getting them into a rational, proactive mode, that doesn’t allow their truest sensations to lead the way.

Their second planetary row is all about balance between giving and receiving. Their position clearly states that they will break frontiers and move forwards no matter what happens, but they are to find a way to slow down enough to cleanse and feel where they are and where they should be going with clarity of beliefs and their image of the world vivid and obvious.

Love and Emotions

Emotions don’t seem to be the main topic for those born on the 13th of August, but in fact they show up unannounced to make a grand entrance and make everything strange and distorted. Their hearts need special attention, for their initiative and energy often don’t leave enough room to listen to their inner states and pay attention to the amount of tenderness they have been given along their path. They are to be gentle with others and themselves, ready to give and receive love in a fine balance.

Their partners could seem like their opposite, annoying passive individuals that don’t seem to rely on anything but the flow and the feel of the moment. Some of them will force their victimized role throughout the entire relationship, while others might simply stand in one place, speaking about their feelings every day. Such bonds serve to show them their own sensitive side, and they do need a partner who has an open heart, ready to fight their battles together, in a pace that allows them to be intimate and close enough instead of rushing through life only to get bruised.


The purpose in lives of individuals born on August 13th is in fact – to find their purpose. Their direction should be chosen with a deep sense of inner truth, with their emotions asked for each movement they make. Their goals lead to learning grand life lectures, able to incorporate knowledge into their routine and their entire future. They are to build vision and make progress, and truth is their greatest companion every step of the way.

What They Excel In

Leos born on August 13th excel in all activities that include sports, teaching, and managing skills. They will easily become professors, highly educated individuals who are always ready to expand, travel, grow, and learn anything that will enrich their world with a new passionate approach to life. Their life force is incredibly strong, pushing them forwards through any restriction that comes into their path, and this often makes them powerful leaders that might lose track of their followers and their emotional states while they make an impression.

August 13th Birthday Gift

A birthday gift for someone born on August 13th is best when it is big and childish, or something to learn from about issues that currently interest them. If you know what they wish to study next or where they want to expand, help them move in that direction, even if it doesn’t seem right from your point of view. You can always choose to take them on a trip or do a series of events that will make up one important whole of gestures they will never forget. Visual and quite creative, they will enjoy a fine piece of art and new things to see that will inspire them to grow even further.

Positive Traits for August 13th Born

Energetic, focused visionaries, ready to act with initiative and clarity of ideals, they are the ones to fight for the cause and move forwards when others would stay behind. They are warm, passionate people, ready to learn new things and move one step ahead of the rest of the world.

Negative Traits for August 13th Born

Feeling as if they were all mighty, they often get caught up in their own ambitions and strivings, expecting nothing less from perfect from their ways of expression and battles that might be impossible to win.

Healing Crystal

It is a crystal that helps them empathize with more ease, slowing down to sense their own emotions and emotions of others. This allows them to connect intimately and with true quality to the rest of the world. It has a joyful and optimistic vibration that brings comfort into their everyday struggles and emotional breakthroughs that won’t let them rest.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Leo representatives born on August 13th in two years preceding a leap year:

"Zuni Indians Perform a Ritual to the Sun"

The Sabian symbol for Leo representatives born on August 13th in a leap year and a year following it:

"Intoxicated Chickens Dizzily Flap their Wings Trying to Fly"

Both of these symbols speak of the individual and the collective that are intertwined, and we will see that for as long as respect is held on one's throne, for others and themselves, they won’t have trouble assessing their true abilities. The importance of toxic influences of any kind, be it relationships or substances that mess up their mind, is vast on this date, and people born at this time should be clean of any influences that will give them a foggy or distorted image of the world. Such states will lead to them becoming unable to see their abilities, believing that they can do more than their body was made to do, overcoming human efforts to achieve things that aren’t even on their path in this lifetime.
