Aug 19th 1953 at 6:35 AM. So by the timestamp this is my birthday but in the timezone it won't happen until tomorrow but there is a good chance that I won't be online. So I thought I'd bury this birth report in here.
The 19th is the best day of the month to be born from the Tarot Major Arcana perspective, the only day that gets three cards, the Sun, Wheel of Fortune and Magician. And who better than a Leo to use these cards to full potential, but then who else but a Leo would think that. :-)

Sun position is 26 deg. 16 min. of Leo

Section 1: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, you are a person who is content to be in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. You are quite humble in your own assessment of yourself and you have a very strong perfectionistic attitude, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well you do something, you always see the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often you will simply refuse to attempt something because you feel you cannot meet your own high standards.
You have an eye for detail and get upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider rather inconsequential or trivial. You are hard to please and your relationships with others may suffer because of this. You also have refined sensitivities and are very discriminating and particular in your choice of foods, clothes, friends, artwork, etc. Order in your environment is very important to you.
You step into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, you are unlikely to dive into it. You tend to underestimate your own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits your spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of yours. On the other hand, you rarely fall flat on your face and what you do, you do very well.
Others see you as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. You have a strong sense of propriety. Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to you. Your clear, cool, objective and nonemotional attitude is apparent to others first, and though you are really quite helpful and caring, you do not radiate much sympathy so that others may not see the helpful side as readily. You may seem more businesslike and factual, and also more conservative, than you really are at heart. You are the person others might go to for technical advice or an unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
You are keenly observant, intelligent, and have a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but you are not especially ambitious and are often satisfied in a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Section 2: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation Proud and intensely individual, you really want to stand out, to be the very best you can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for your unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to you, and you cannot tolerate being in the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". You must put your personal stamp on whatever you do, and direct your own course in life. You need to have a place where you can shine, express yourself creatively, and be the one in charge.
You have big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality, and enthusiasm to bring them into being. You also have a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For you it is true that "all the world's a stage" and you secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desire to be the Star or Hero in the play. You want to be great, and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. You need someone to believe in you and your dreams. Though you appear radiantly self-confident and independent, you are actually very much dependent on the affirmation, love, and recognition of others. You cannot bear being unnoticed or unappreciated.
You also love wholeheartedly and generously and really know how to make the person you love feel special. You love the magic of "being in love" and know how to keep the romance alive in your relationships. You are also immensely loyal and will defend your loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend your pride or betray your trust. However, you like to be the strong one in a relationship and you really do not share the leading role very easily. Ideally you need to find a person who is as strong-willed as yourself, but who will not try to dominate or compete with you.
Your strengths are your zest and love for life, your creative power, and your warm and generous heart. Your primary fault is your tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned with the impression you are making and with your own creative self-expression that you forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around you.

or perhaps a Quetzal-bird,
fly through the windows of your mind
and show you a little insight, this morning;
I see you are a morning person, somewhere around dawn,
a time of beginning and transformation
between darkness and light.
19 Aug 2004 @ 04:44 by : may you find
the light in every shadow
water when you thirst
and a soft bed when you tire
19 Aug 2004 @ 07:26 by : Thank you
Ah yes the plumed serpert flying through my brain. I do believe that is going to be the plan. Usually the only time I see the morning is when I'm still up but since the Venus transit that has kind of switched around and now I'm becoming more of a morning person. Could be the budd factor.
444 that's one of those special numbers. 51 ain't that special. How can I be over the hill when I've never been on top. Heard that one the other day and had to laugh. Yeah, we will get silly tomorrow. Night all.

Leo's are one of my favorite signs to date,I lived with one and found him quite fascinating. He had a good business sense and is very family oriented. So keep those birthdays coming along with your Mayan Calender.I take it your wiser now!

And remember it's better to be over the hill than under the hill.
Best of birthday wishes from a fellow Leo!
