August 4 Horoscope

Being a Leo Born on August 4th, you are well known for inspiring, optimistic and humorous personality. You're naturally quite social and love any setting where you can make people laugh. You take the world on as your stage and thrive in an environment where you are the center of attention. Your humor is only matched by your positive outlook. Your friends and family are often impressed with how you can find the good in any situation.

Fire is your paired element and as a Leo, you have the most fundamental connection with the element of the 12 zodiac signs. Fire's influence is seen in the way your passion and enthusiasm seem to burn endlessly. You often amaze others with the fortitude and determination you display when attempting to meet your goals. Embracing these positive qualities of fire will be key to your future success, but the impatience and impulsiveness that accompany your elemental connection can be detrimental if left unchecked.

The Sun is the planetary ruler of your sign, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign you also receive planetary influence from Jupiter. If you could describe the Sun as the planet of creativity, ego and willpower, Jupiter would be described as the planet of creativity, optimism, and higher learning. This combination of planetary influence make you more optimistic and curious than other Leo's. You have the rare gift to learn from your environment and always find a way to take something from a new place you visit. Continue on your pursuit of knowledge and make sure not to lose your optimism, as these two qualities are amongst your best.

As a natural people person, there are a variety of careers open for you to pursue. Careers where people skills are key, such as sales or public relations may be a perfect fit. If you are more artistically inclined, a career in entertainment could put your creativity to good use. You may have the perfect amount of understanding, optimism and people skills to be a great leader. If this interests you, look to the political careers of Barack Obama and Elizabeth the Queen Mother for inspiration, as they were both also born on August 4th.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an old sea captain rocking on the porch of his cottage. While a fixation on the past is unhealthy, there is much to be found in moments of quiet reflection. Find joy in looking upon your past successes and learn from the lessons of past failures.
