August 5 Birthday Horoscope
August 5 Zodiac Sign - Leo
As a Leo born on August 5th, your personality is dominated by your humorous and optimistic nature. While others choose to stay on the sidelines, you gravitate to the spotlight. You love to make people laugh and always try to impress your peers with quick wit and clever observations. While this attribute is enough to gain you many friends, people also appreciate your positive outlook.

August 5 Birthday Element - Fire
Fire is your sign’s paired element and you actually are the only zodiac sign with a fundamental connection to fire. The influence of fire is obvious within you, as you passionately take on all aspects of life. Your flame doesn’t falter in the face of advertised, quite the opposite, you seem to become even more determined when confronted with challenges. These positive qualities of fire can become one of your greatest assets, but be careful to avoid the impatience and impulsiveness that often arise from an uncontrolled flame.
August 5 Ruling Planet - Sun
The planetary ruler of the Leo is the Sun, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also given the planetary influence of Jupiter. The Sun’s power is seen in your rugged individualism and creativity and Jupiter’s influence is witnessed in your strong optimism and idealistic nature. These two planets help drive the unique appreciation you have for life. More so than other Leo’s, you strive to gain as much knowledge as you can and never fail to see the lessons in new people or environments. Likewise, you are also the most optimistic of the Leo Decans. Make sure to not lose your positive outlook, as good things will come to you because of it.
