August 8th Horoscope
This entire planetary row speaks of one's connection to planet Earth and speaks of the importance of the material world in lives of individuals born on August 8th. They will be filled with energy that needs to be employed and if their instincts and physical needs aren’t met at the youngest age, they could feel frustrated or become aggressive as time goes by.

Love and Emotions

Initiative won’t be their issue, except when they get tied in images of cocreation with the wrong partner. As they get closer to their center of personality and allow their entire world to reshape and change, they will find someone equal and stop taking over the roles of an aggressor or a victim. They need time and usually to spend some time alone to understand their true needs and sort their priorities out, before they rush to initiate a close and a healthy relationship with the one they love.
