We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for a celebration of ME! I have to admit this must be one of the better perks to blogging, you really do get to shout from the rooftops that it’s your day!
Do you put much stock in horoscopes? Your birth month, date or year having an influence on who you are? I thought I would look mine up and see if any of it rang true…as with most things some what oddly accurate and others I think don’t describe me at all, but I should probably check with those closest to me.
According to the books those born on Aug 13th:
You’re dominant and powerful. You always need to be in charge.
While others respect your competence, you can be a bit of a dictator.
Hard working and serious, you never let yourself down.
You are exact and accurate – and you expect others to be the same way.
Your strength: You always get the job done
Your weakness: You’re a perfectionist to a fault
Your power color: Gray
Your power symbol: Checkmark
Your power month: April
Huh..bummer there’s nothing in there about love, laughter or running. But a lot of it definitely rings true, as I am always striving to be better and do more. I don’t believe in perfection; I believe in constantly growing.

Love triumphs over all for this sign, which is ruled by the heart and operates from this dimension too. Leo’s are born fortunate. Charismatic and positive-thinking they attract not only an abundance of friends and opportunities, but manage to survive life’s stormy times with style and good humour.
Once a Lion is committed to a relationship, they are totally devoted and faithful. Should their heart or trust be broken they never forgive or forget. When a relationship breaks down (even a long standing one) they can disappear into the sunset without a backward look. Leos can cut ties, and leave others heartbroken, but usually there is a good reason why they have broken a tryst. For a Leo, when a relationship is over, really over, it is over for good.
People born under the year of the Rooster tend to hide their conservative natures via a display of aggression and self-confidence, however they are very “dignified”. They love to be the focus of attention, showing scant regard for the feelings of others and as a result they are often susceptible to flattery and sycophancy. However they are excellent with money and are great purists to the degree that they will not allow for human weaknesses.
Metal people are brave, disciplined, trained, organized, authoritative, determinative, routine, firm, resolute and have an urge to win. They have a large sense of honor. They like to spread their fame. They are sensitive in grief and sadness.
