Born today on the 24th, August
This creature embodies all the alluring qualities which make so many of their admirers want to murmur ‘Come live with me and be my love’. The best kind of cusp cocktail, there is fire in the heart, lightness in the wit, and a steadiness of concentration which can impress the cleverest people in the land. In effect, August 24 catches Leo’s last brilliant rays, twists them round a cocktail stick and slips the golden wand into the luscious dark velvet of their psycheology. The women are much pursued, not least for their mystery. She doesn’t try to be mysterious. On the contrary, she is bright, witty and can sometimes be the gorgeous focal attention of a party. But for all the friendliness, there’s that feeling you just can’t grasp her. Many of the men are very similar and give even their closest loved ones a prickly sensation, foreboding of loss, even when there’s absolutely no indication of anything but happiness. You are always trying to hang on to August 24 and always glad you have a firm hold because somebody else is trying to lure them away. Many people pursue some kind of academic career, or at least research. They are clever, yes, but what takes them onwards is dedication to a subject and pleasure in isolation, which of course ain’t easily accomplished in open plan offices. Ms August 24 likes to make her house cosy, with lots of affordable collectibles she has picked up here and there on her travels. She favours Italy, in particular the south with its stinging heat and the dusty white light. She brings back terracotta pots and bright scarves which she puts on shelves and hangs on walls. Males of the species don’t care so much about their surroundings and can be quite stickily conservative with anybody who wants to cheer them up. But he too likes to decorate the place with personal mementoes.
Body: Lady 24 adores aromatic oils and uses them for baths and hair and every purpose she can imagine. She’s a girl who is made for motherhood and can expect quite a few pregnancies, not all planned and very possibly either from different fathers, or a second batch of babies several years after the first. Slightly faddy about health matters, she should avoid any unconventional alternative medicines during pregnancy and certainly give up many favourite aromatherapy oils. In particular don’t use basil, cloves, cinnamon, hyssop, juniper, marjoram, myrrh, sage and thyme, peppermint and rosemary. And don’t take any essential oils internally during this time.
Mind: In numerology 24 people are ruled by the number 6 (2+4=6) and the 6th card of Tarot’s Major Arcana is The Lovers -great powers of affection and decisiveness, with an unfortunate tendency to sentimentalise.
