As a Leo born on August 15th, you are characterized by your highly ambitious, honest and slightly stubborn spirit. You confront life head on, and strive to reach new levels of success constantly. You are goal oriented and are more than willing to put in the effort to reach your goals. When dealing with others, you are honest to a fault. Some of your family and friends may find themselves frustrated with your blunt and stubborn ways, but they love you just the same.
Fire is your sign's paired element and as you are a Leo, you actually have the most fundamental connection with the element. As passion and enthusiasm burn inside you like a strong flame, you feel the influence of fire. It is the same influence that causes you to find more inner-strength in the face of great challenges. Be aware that fire's influence is not completely positive, because it also stirs feelings of impatience and impulsiveness, which can detract for your success.
The Leo's main planetary ruler is the Sun, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the planetary influence of Mars. Your unique combination of planetary influence makes you far more ambitious than other Leo Decans. The Sun's influence over creativity and individualism, is met nicely with Mars' influence over courage and assertiveness. You will push towards your desired goals with a relentless fever, as long as you remain positive and energetic. Your faith in your own abilities makes you stubborn at times, but it also makes you courageous. Embrace these qualities and you will continue on a path towards success. Avoid the dangers of anger and restlessness that are also a product of your planetary influences.
While choosing a career is easier said than done, you have the potential to be successful at a long list of careers. Your honesty and ambition would combine nicely in sales or marketing career. You may also find it rewarding in a career where you can help others, such as education or law. The ambitious entertainment world may be too tempting for you to pass by. If this is the case, look to the successes of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lawrence, who were both born on August 15th, for inspiration.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a man, totally concentrated upon inner spiritual attainment, a man is sitting in a sate of complete neglect of his body. You may be on the cusp of a personal discovery or revelation. If this is the case, you can reach your desired level of understanding with concentration. Be aware that inner focus often comes at the price of external neglect.
