As a Leo born on August 7th, you are well known for being both humorous and optimistic. You love to have everyone's attention, because it gives you the coveted opportunity to make others laugh. Your whit is one of your greatest tools for winning over others and it is greatly appreciated by those close to you. Your optimism always finds a way to shine, even in situations that appear to be overwhelmingly negative. You take this same optimism into exploring new places and environments.

Fire

The Leo's paired element is fire and you actually are the only zodiac sign with a fundamental connection to the element. Fire's influence materializes in the burning passion that seems to power you through life. Whenever you encounter a challenge or goal, you work tirelessly to meet it. It is this determination that is one of your greatest assets. Be careful to avoid the impatience, egotism and impulsiveness that comes from the over-embrace of fire's influence.

Your sign is ruled by the Sun, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the planetary influence of Jupiter. Being the planet of individuality, creativity and vitality, the Sun's influence is connected to these same traits that you possess. Likewise, Jupiter is responsible for your generosity, optimism and idealistic nature. These planets combine to make you the most positive and knowledge driven of all the Leo Decans. You take every chance to learn from the world around you and are most excited in new places or while meeting new people. Hold on tightly to your positive outlook, as it is not only inspiring to others, but a source of great fortune.

Your social skills, outgoingness and optimism create the possibility of success in numerous careers. Your personality may be geared to the world of business, sales or promotion. Your generosity may lead you into more compassionate careers, such as teaching or counseling. If you are more artistically inclined, a career in entertainment may be fitting. If this is the case, look to the classic comedy of Carl Alfalfa Switzer or the inspiring roles of Charlize Theron, who were also born on August 7th, for encouragement.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a brilliant sunshine just after a storm. The stresses of crisis can be overwhelming and in your own life, you may have personal experience with this darkness. Luckily, you have the strength to overcome any obstacle and in doing so, you can receive a fresh surge of life and love. You may be on the cusp of a new beginning and if this is the case, embrace it with open arms.
