As a Leo born on August 21st, you are known for your being active, ambitious and honest. You seem to never be able to sit still, as you find no comfort in being stagnant. You are always pushing to be productive and often challenge yourself to reach new levels of success. Those close to you admire your ambition, although they may be less supported of your blunt way of communicating. Luckily they understand that you do not mean to offend, instead you just genuinely feel that honesty is the best policy.

Fire

Your sign's paired element is fire and as a Leo, you have the most cardinal connection with the element. As if powered by a strong flame, passion and enthusiasm seems to burn inside you whenever you are confronted with a challenge or new task. Your flame never falters, as it drives you to accomplish your goals, even in the face of great adversity. The positive qualities of fire are numerous, but be weary of fire's negative qualities, which include impatience and impulsiveness.

The Sun is your sign's ruling planet, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Mars. Creativity, individualism and vitality are all qualities that can be attributed to the sun. Likewise, your assertive and vigorous qualities can be attributed to the influence of Mars. When your planetary influences combine, you are made to be the most motivated and success-driven of all the Leo Decans. Your energy well never deplete as long as you stay on path that keeps your interest. Be aware that the Sun and Mars don't come without their dark qualities as well. If you delve too deep into your dreams of ambition, you may develop restlessness and anger when you goals are not immediately met.

Although choosing a career is difficult, it is certain that you must find a career that you find engaging and challenging. As you will always strive for the highest pinnacles of success, a career in business or advertising may be rewarding. Your compassion may lead you to more of a people-based career such as education. In whichever career you choose, your determination will be the key to your success. Look to the mind-blowing accomplishments of athletes Usain Bolt and Wilt Chamberlain, who both share your August 21st birthday, as examples of the success that comes with determination.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an unsealed letter. It may be a hard fact to accept, but even the most private ideas or messages find their way into the public's view. While this could cause you to shy away from sharing things, you should instead develop confidence in your ideas. Have faith in positivity and goodness, as these qualities are intertwined with man.
