August 23rd, dead in the middle of a Leo Virgo Cusp. The artist probably never intended for this to be how I interpreted it, but if there were Fire and Earth elements somewhere in here it would be perfect for that.
(August 19th to August 25th)
Leo - Virgo - If you were born on the Leo-Virgo cusp, from about August 19 to August 25, you were born on “The Cusp of Exposure,” but that’s not as risque as it sounds. In fact, you face some not-so-fun and conflicting energy in your life. Leo is a Fire sign and Virgo is an Earth sign, which means there are contrary elements to your personality.
The question is, will the fire in your heart be smothered by the Earth, or will it burn bright? Because these cuspers were born between such very different signs, it’s hard to say which way they’ll lean. Some on the Leo-Virgo cusp gravitate more toward Leo’s need for drama and attention, while others are more like Virgo and prefer a quiet, less social lifestyle. Whichever way you lean, though, your personality will most likely be hardworking and passionate, especially when dedicated to a particular cause. Strengths: Hardworking, passionate, discriminating, positive, success-driven and honest.
Weaknesses: Critical, antisocial, manipulative, stubborn, quarrelsome and melodramatic. How Leo and Virgo energy work together: Leo’s flair for drama and Virgo’s down to earth practicality don’t always mix well. These cuspers need to be careful of living a life of extremes — either bold and loud or silent and secretive. But if they can strike a balance between their extroverted and introverted sides, they will master the rare ability to know exactly when to speak up and when to remain silent.
What they love: Getting behind a good cause. Leo is a loving and natural born leader, while Virgo is hardworking, detail oriented and devoted to helping others. Together this is a persuasive cusp combination that is happiest when rallying a group of people in support of a great cause. And know this: They will succeed!
What they need: Intimacy. It won’t come easy for these cuspers, who value secrets and privacy above all else, but they really need to have people in their lives who know them well and love them for exactly who they are. Leo-Virgo cuspers must learn to share more of themselves with others, which will in turn help them get in better touch with their own feelings and emotions

noun | das Fernweh (n)
"Fernweh" is one of my favorite German words and there is no English translation for it. It is basically the opposite of homesickness (Heimweh): when you feel like you have to leave your familiar surroundings to discover new places. It is the need for distance, the wish to experience something far away from home, the urge to escape from your everyday life by travelling.
This story will warm you better than a coffee in a cold winter day!
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
'Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended' They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
'Do you have a suspended coffee ?'
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.
