Born today, August 8, you are a fierce competitor, but you engage in everything -- even the most serious of contests -- with a sense of balance and fairness that allows you to maintain perspective and progress with a kind of calm that gives you the edge over anyone who is led by his or her passions. This is not to say that you are not passionate, but you always manage to keep your heart and your head in careful equilibrium. You possess a genuine lust for life, and you dedicate yourself fully to any endeavor that is worth your time and study.
You understand fully the importance of the past to your own present and future, and your place in a long line is not lost on you; indeed, you are perhaps more capable of fulfilling your destiny than anyone else born under your sign for precisely this reason.
Today’s Leo Horoscope: You can try something new and enjoy it as if it is familiar, comfortable and absolutely right for you.
Born Aug. 8, you tend to fall in and out of love quickly, but this doesn't mean that it's not the real thing when it happens to you. Indeed it is, as far as you are concerned, even though it happens to you again and again. The difficulty, of course, is that you're never able to leave a former lover in your dust, so you are always keenly aware of the broken hearts you have left behind -- and this can be quite painful to you. Indeed, you have a knack for remaining friends long after the romantic fire has burned out.
You believe that variety is the spice of life in all aspects of your daily affairs, and this can be rather dangerous where employment is concerned, for your eagerness to enjoy something new and different may make it quite difficult for you to enjoy long-term success in any single line of work.
