Months of the Year: August
Continuing with our series on the twelve months of the year, we are now looking at August.

Leo is the dominant star sign of August and its symbol is based on the Nemean lion, a creature from Greek mythology with an impenetrable hide, which is said to have fallen from the moon as the offspring of Zeus and Selene.

August is also the time of harvest, summer holidays and this year of course, the Olympic Games in Rio, the 31st games since the first modern Olympiad in 1896 in Greece.
