With the Sun approaching the end of Leo, August 22nd has its peak in creativity and our childish need to present our inner being and express ourselves. This is an emotional date, when passions need to be calmed in order for us to swim out of them with a clear mind and a plan we can hold on to, so our dreams can be reached. Those born at this time are connected to others on a different level than the rest of Leo representatives, and feel a constant need to set free from ego battles and follow their heart.
August 22nd Horoscope
The planetary row of August 22nd can be viewed as a "victory" of emotion over instincts and the Moon over Mars. However, it points out that family issues with anger might have to be resolved, and negative and positive emotions merged into one loving image of Self in those born on this date. They are openhearted and warm, typically a bit childish and nurturing to those they love, but their boundaries may come out as problematic if they don’t make anger useful for personal progress or if they get carried away from their realistic abilities trough relationships that are too intertwined to differentiate what is theirs and what belongs to the other person.
The touch of lights defines the progress of their emotional battles and it is the relationship between their parents that gives structure to their patterns and leads them in certain directions. They are to balance out their nurturing, passive Self with the one that is filled with vigor, energy and initiative, and the easiness of this task with such a powerful Sun is seen through the position of their natal Moon.
Love and Emotions
Hearts of those born on the 22nd of August are open and large, ready to take a partner in as soon as they connect on a non-verbal, clearly emotional level. Their passionate, fiery side often subsides when they get tied to someone, and this may grow to become a problem in the longer run, for they can’t seem to hold on to both – their emotional self and their stable core of personality. Still, their relationships are colored with tender feelings, even if the physical world doesn’t seem that supportive of their intent to be gentle and nurturing.
With a tendency to repeat patterns and mistakes their parents made, their love life will often be defined by their touch, and it could lead them into romances that aren’t really supportive of their own personal needs. In time, they are to separate from information that isn’t really theirs, realizing that their childish, most honest needs must be respected at all times in order for their relationship to last. They need someone who shares their ideals and believs in them, someone to travel and learn with, and someone whose heart is just as big as their own.
The entire lifetime of Leos born on August 22nd is about learning and absorbing knowledge that can be used to improve their life and heal their hearts from bruises in their family tree.

Their purpose is to find the direction that is easy to follow and build enough self-belief and faith in good to move on from stagnant points that keep them tied.
