August 2nd is, as every 2nd of every month, a date to follow the initial spark. While Leos born at this time still have their incredible leadership abilities, their role isn’t to move ahead without every looking back, but to sense the atmosphere, connect with people intimately, and find the striving of their Soul that makes them unique. They are to be tender in their ways, aware of their sensitivity and their emotional world.

August 2nd Horoscope

(Pluto) – MOON – (Pluto) – MARS

The beauty and the challenge of this planetary row is in the passion it carries one's way. People born on the 2nd of August have an intense internal world and need to slow down enough to feel the right path to be chosen, instead of actively pushing themselves over limits that aren’t instantly as obvious as they’d like them to be. Their world is colored with relationships, emotions, and connections that are pure in their core, but often aggressive on their sensitive Soul. As they stop to listen to their inner needs, they will understand others better, and be able to hear and express their feelings, gathering followers and inspiring others to be exceptional and as unique as they are.

A lot of understanding is needed for these individuals not to go through painful changes in life. Their deepest meaning and the core of their personality is tested through large shifts and losses, and while they might not manifest in the outer world and circumstances, they will still be intense in their inner world.

Love and Emotions

The strong emphasis on emotions in the primal planetary row of those born on August 2nd will clearly manifest in the world of their close relationships. They will search for ways to connect with another person on a deeply intimate, spiritual plane, understanding their needs and receiving support in return. However, matters of their fire that is often uncontrolled and too warm to not make their waters evaporate, they often build relationships that burn in flames and hurt their heart or the heart of their loved one.

As they grow older, they learn how important their gentle approach to Self really is. When they get out of the structure of family and any home that isn’t their own, they learn exactly how much rest and alone time they need to be fully functional with other people. Sexuality is a matter of feelings and they are to approach it in the finest of their senses, ready to explore just how far they can go respectful of boundaries of their partner, and their own walls and barriers.


With all their numbers adding up to number 1, the intense energy of the Sun is something to see clearly in this incarnation. Their path involves strength of character, but pure in its glow, and their role is to lead the way tenderly and with connection to their greatest inner truth. In the ideal world, these individuals are leaders for large masses to clean their hearts and see the best their feelings and intimate worlds have to offer.

What They Excel In

August 2nd brings a lot of feelings our way and we will see that people born at this time understand others much better than they often notice. They excel in fields of expertise that help others find themselves, with everyone lost, physically or metaphorically. They work well with children and pregnant women, as well as all those sensitive souls that need assistance in getting over their dependencies or psychological troubles. They are leaders for the masses when calm, supported and in touch with their own emotional world.

August 2nd Birthday Gift

The right choice of birthday gift for someone born on August 2nd can be anything from a trinket for their home to a piece of sporting equipment. It is important to sense their personal affections and it isn’t advised to go with a picture frame or a vase they will put on their shelf, unless when you sense it is a real manifestation of their inner world. They want to feel the warmth, so take something personal, with respect to everything they are, and make it touchable and emotionally rich.

Positive Traits for August 2nd Born

Energetic, passionate, and connected to the world in a profound way, they are here to give respect and shine a light on those who need guidance and help in their path.

Negative Traits for August 2nd Born

Too fiery to hold on to their own intimate world, they easily disconnect and move forwards without much thinking, hurting themselves and others without awareness of everyone's sensitivity.

It helps them release any unconscious fears that hold them on a distance from their heart, calms and soothes their Soul and helps them find forgiveness. It is a stone of compassion and deep understanding that allows one to see where other people's weaknesses made them too aggressive or hurtful. It will help them free their anger and find a meaningful place among other humans.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Leo representatives born on August 2nd:

"Early Morning Dew Sparkles as Sunlight Floods the Field"

An obvious connection of the element of Water with the fire of the Sun a person born on this date carries within, this symbol speaks of the special sparkle they give when they connect in a healthy, natural way. It is a good way to see other people in their life, for each drop that receives the light may be seen as another Soul that takes what is given in all its glory and sparkles to reflect on the benefit of warmth and light it received. This is an image they should meditate on, realizing that their role is bigger than that in one specific relationship, and their constant touch with feelings the most beautiful, sparkly thing they can create.
