I've always felt a certain pride in being an August child. I feel that people born in August walk in the light and I don't think it's mere coincidence. I believe in astrology. Call me loco but I do, it makes total sense to me. I found the following passage in some astrology site that sounds about right: "The powerful star, Sun, rules the Month of August and the ruling zodiac of the month is the regal lion, Leo. Like the Sun, individuals born in this month are ruled by the Sun as they derive their life's force and energy from this star. Individuals born under the Leo zodiac sign outshine others with their inner light, dynamic and magnanimous nature. Like the never-fading light of the Sun, they achieve their highest goals, fame and fortune in their life". Famous August children include: Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, Coco Chanel, Tom Brady, Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, Kobe Bryant, Andy Warhol, Mother Theresa, Warren Buffet, Bobby D, Larry Ellison, Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron and Miss Salinas, of course hehe.
Last Saturday was my birthday and I felt particularly energized since the eclipse was hours away. Even though we didn't get much of the eclipse on the west coast, I sat outside, dressed in white and connected to the cosmic energy. This year I celebrated my birthday in style in collaboration with Marchesa Shoes (@akhstudio) and Loraida Jewelry (@loraida.jewelry). With their feminine and delicate designs, both brands made me feel like a real life princess, check them out on instagram, you will love their pieces as much as I do! I hope you enjoy this birthday themed shoot captured by the magic lens of Michael Helms.
