August 10th Zodiac
Date: August 10th
In One Word: Unity
Strength: Intense Power
Most Compatabile With: Sagittarius
Although August 10th is set in the midst of summer, it represents a form of a cold passage that one needs to go through to reach for the light of the Sun. This is an intense date when many things are considered obligatory and grounding and a realistic view on life often helps individuals born at this time to build a solid image of Self that allows progress and change, whenever it is necessary.
When the Sun combines with Pluto, the intensity of this contact is always something to recognize and lean on. While it may lead to anger issues, resentment, or an ice-cold attitude towards other people and the world, people born on the 10th of August are usually extremely warm and passionate, until they start feeling betrayed in any way. It is important for them to go through changes as swiftly as possible, and this is a large request for Leo with its fixed nature and a glowing personality that always wants to shine in the same manner, for billions and billions of years. We can anticipate a great change in their life, when self-recognition makes them question everything they have been building and reality of their inner truth becomes so intensely obvious that it cannot be ignored anymore. Once they move through this inner tunnel and absorb their center of gravity and their true personality, they will have the power to manifest whatever inspires them and makes them who they are.

As if these two symbols spoke of the internal conflict between faith and science, logic and dreams, they make those born on this date doubtful and in constant need of new information. If they don’t turn to scientific research in order to feed their deep need to understand mysteries of the world, they will examine people and their ways to reach the point of inner peace with them. While their entire approach might lack compassion in the long run, it will be built through relationships that touch their Soul and make them vulnerable and bare.
With the purpose of existence for those born on August 10th found in Neptune, we can see that their intense moves in life all serve a higher purpose in their quest for the truth. They are to reveal their true faith and with it, their true talents, that are often swept beneath the rug in order to make them fully functional. Their inner struggles all lead towards the Divine love and feelings of bliss, and while they might find themselves in a dark hole for long periods of time, they know that once they come out, they will be the ideal version of themselves.
Love and Emotions
With true love and the idealistic approach to it set as their final destination, Leos born on the 10th of August may experiment a lot until they find the right person to be with. Highly sexual and in touch with their instincts, they will need an approach that is sensitive enough to create something stable with any partner they end up with. The need for deep and thorough changes might make them a bit too intense and could lead to breakups that are filled with bitterness and regret, but the overall image of their bonds will move in a positive direction, teaching them to forgive, accept, and move lightly and in touch with their identity.
They need a partner who is calm and stable, one that can recognize their initiative and ways of thinking that are deep and profound. They can sense betrayal when it is still miles away and won’t easily forgive those who hurt them along the way. This may get them stuck in relationships that aren’t as satisfying as they want them to be, until they learn to form a compassionate approach while still keeping their boundaries safe and protecting themselves from dishonesty and toxic relationships. The touch of their inner truth will liberate them and lead to ways of expression that allow their one true soulmate to be found.
What They Excel In
August 10th is an extremely potent time, and people born on this date carry magic in their core that is truly hard to explain. While this may make them excellent magicians and foretellers of all sorts, yogis and meditators, it will typically turn them to more rational choices such as science or, in a destructive manifestation, crime. While they may be excellent and extremely successful criminals, Pluto in their row is there to remind us of "What Comes Around Goes Around" policy, and it is wise for them to find a way to focus this incredible energy on desires that will connect them with others profoundly and deeply so they don’t suffer the imminent comeback of karma in their lifetime.

It will boost their vitality, strength and stamina, bringing them in touch with the physical abilities they possess and opening doors for outer manifestation of their dreamland.
