Fire is the Leo’s paired element and you actually have a cardinal connection to the element. The influence of fire can been seen in the way you passionately and energetically take on life. When you find something interesting or challenging, you tackle it with great fortitude and determination. While this is not only impressive to those around you, it is also one of your greatest talents. Be weary of fire’s negative influences, because if you let your enthusiasm burn to strongly, you may become impulsive and impatient.
