The following is an except from my latest book Numerology of Astrology: Degrees of the Sun. With some exceptions those born on the first of August have the sun 9 degrees in Virgo. These descriptions are written for old souls who have been on the planet many times and are nearing the time to face their dark side, integrate Self, complete the karmic cycle and evolve further into a new dimension.

The verbatim description is not going to exactly fit every single person with this degree. It is important to look at the archetypal meaning and adjust to the circumstance of the person’s life. Probably the name from this group that most people recognize is Gloria Estefan or Salma Hayek.

If this is your sun sign you may be a little more idealistic and hopeful than many of your Virgo contemporaries. You can seem pretty far out in your ideas and expectations for someone who is expected to be grounded and rooted in old Missouri skepticism. This combination at its best stimulates the dream and gives you the necessary equipment to fulfill the scheme. You inspire others with your vision and possess the tenacity to stick with your vision until you see it come into fruition. Your charm and persuasive manner lends a hand to helping with the public relations portion of your quest.
There is the karmic clue that perhaps you were in a position to inspire and uplift others in another time and place. Perhaps you sold out to personal power or greed. Perhaps you feel as if you failed to accomplish the soul’s desired intent. There is lingering guilt and doubt as to your ability to carry off any thing of meaning. You will be placed in a position that allows you to once again make a spiritual move which can substantially enhance your inner growth. People, who share the same dream and aspiration to help mankind, enter your life at just the right time.
You mix and mingle with unique and unusual souls as you go about your life on this plane of existence. You travel to exotic places and are introduced to arcane and esoteric teachings that are both ancient and divinely applicable in our time. Your cultured manner and gift of story make it easier for you to attract capable and dedicated accomplices who are both qualified and motivated to see your mission through to the end. You see a vision of an uncorrupted world and strive to prepare yourself and those who believe to be ready and bring that possible world into reality.

Notables With This Degree:

Keanu Reeves --- movie actor, musician
Gloria Estefan --- singer, songwriter
Salma Hayek --- movie, tv actress and producer
Aimee Osbourne --- singer, actress and columnist

Author's Bio: 

Lynn Buess MA, EdS brings a very unique perspective to astrology from his fifty plus years study and practice of numerology, healing and wellness innovator. During his earlier years he studied multiple theories of esoteric and metaphysical subjects including eastern religion and philosophies, reincarnation, astrology, and yogism to mention a few. His academic years in pursuit of three degrees in Psychology took him into humanistic psychology, transpersonal psychology and parapsychology studies as well. He is the only numerologist with two accredited post graduate degrees focused upon numerology and symbolism.
This academic experience, along with personal studies and mystical events and glimpse into cosmic consciousness, has given him an extraordinary perspective into the understanding of human psychology and experience. As a one time practicing psychotherapist and alternative wellness practitioner, he applied the art of multiple healing modalities in seeking to practice the most efficient techniques of healing and well being.
Lynn’s experience of practice in numerous nationalities adds to his scope of human nature and depth of insight into generations of family dysfunction and growth. Having come from a family of alcoholism and other toxic patterns he was eventually introduced to the issues of Adult Children of Alcoholism and the multiple dysfunctions of alcohol, drugs, sexual and codependent behavior. Much of his practice dealt with these common social behavior patterns.
Lynn served as a military intelligence special agent during his early adulthood. His experience conducting thousands of background investigations and performing the duties of security and counter espionage taught him to recognize many hidden irregularities and deceptive practices used by institutions and people in the position to misuse and abuse power. Having this professional investigative background enables him to identify issues that are frequently unrecognized or ignored by members of the general public.
This unique and varied cornucopia of internal mystical experiences and external life circumstances is reflected in the vastly expanded viewpoint he brings to the field of numerology and his wellness professionalism. Lynn is able to examine numerical cycles and deftly apply then in analyzing individual intervals of life circumstance, or national and international events taking place in the world around us.
