The month of August is dominated by the zodiac sign, Leo, with the last few days falling under Virgo. People born between July 23 and August 21 are considered Leos, whereas, those whose birthdays fall between August 19 and 23 are said to be born on the Leo-Virgo cusp. People born under these two astrological categories differ from each other to a certain degree. A Leo possesses a positive outlook towards life and is very enthusiastic and is full of life. He/she is proud and determined and is also a great achiever who sets examples for others. Leos are genuine friends and are extremely loyal in their relationships. However, their self-centered nature and the tendency to dominate others are among their major negative traits. They are attention-seekers and can be very demanding at times. However, Leos are born leaders and whether consciously or unconsciously, they like to rule.  They are brave and fearless when it comes to confrontation and are natural leaders. They take pride in themselves and possess an extreme sense of supremacy, just like the Lion itself.

People born on the Leo-Virgo cusp can either be extremely sociable or very reticent. In contrast to a proud, romantic and outgoing Leo, those born under the cusp are more practical, self-oriented and meticulous. These individuals possess a combination of the introvert and extrovert tendencies and therefore, are usually very down to earth, rational and at the same time, innovative. They too, like the Leos, are optimistic and prosperous individuals, but tend to overreact in certain situations, especially when something comes in their way of success. Leo/Virgo is a combination of Fire/Earth signs which enables these people to analyze a problem before taking any action. They pay attention to every detail and are extremely vigilant about the decisions they take, which makes them good businesspeople.
