Astrologically, individuals born on August 16 are under the predominant influence of the Sun. However, the actual date is ruled over by the planet Neptune. As such, both Sun and Neptune cast a powerful influence on the personality traits and characteristic of August 16th natives. These people are blessed with a kind and generous demeanor and disciplined conduct. They are empathic towards others, have a perceptive approach and stand for the right. Due to this, these people are able to see beyond the obvious and have a futuristic eye. However, not all is favourable for these individuals as they have an egotistical side to them and can get stubborn and opinionated. However, if they learn to channelize their energy, they can be highly successful, personally, socially and professionally.
