Being a Leo born on August 10th, you are known for your humor, optimism and ability to inspire. While others may stray from the spotlight, you are most comfortable being the center of attention. You love to entertain those close to you and won't be satisfied until your audience's sides are splitting. Your sense of humor is only out shined by your positive world outlook. Your loved ones are often impressed and inspired by the way that you can make the best out of any situation.

Fire

Your sign's paired element is fire and as a Leo, you are the only zodiac sign with a cardinal relationship to the element. The influence of fire is strong with you, as you take to new tasks with a burning passion and energy. Even in the face of great challenges, your flame never falters, instead only motivating you to work with more determination to meet your goals. Embracing the positive qualities of fire can become one of your greatest assets, but be aware of fire's negative influences, which include impulsiveness and impatience.

The Sun is your sign's planetary ruler, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive Jupiter's planetary influence. The power of the Sun is reflected in your creativity, individualism and vitality, while the power Jupiter is witnessed in your optimism, generosity and idealism. The combination of these two planets makes you far more positive and knowledge driven than any of the Leo Decans. You have the ability to learn and take the best from almost any situation or person. While there may be times when false optimism can derail you, never lose your belief that the best can happen in any situation. You will be surprised as to how much luck can come your way because of a positive attitude.

Your social skills and creativity make numerous careers open to you, although choosing one and sticking to it may be difficult. Your people-friendly nature would fit well in careers such as business, sales and public relations. If you are really drawn to the entertainment world, a career in acting or writing may be a perfect fit. Look to the acting range of Antonio Banderas, who was also born on July 10th, for inspiration. If you are more musically inclined, the work of Ian Anderson, another of your birthday twins, may serve as encouragement.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a houseboat party. Its easy to become rundown by the day to day grind. If you are currently experiencing the emotional woes of routine, embrace the enjoyment of freeing yourself from the rigid structure of social life. Doing so will help rejuvenate your spirit.
