LEO. The Lion....23 July to 22 August.
Both my daughter (born late July) and her husband (born earlyish August) come under this star sign.
LEO your element is Fire and your quality is fixed. You are the 'shining one' of the Fire signs, ruled by the Sun, creative and dramatic - the Fire sign most suited for centre stage. artistic and confident. The Fire element means you are an intuitive type motivated by your enthusiasms and inspirations, ever needing a creative outlet.
As the 'fixed' Fire sign you hold strongly to your creative ideas and self image. which is why you are sometimes also known for pride and arrogance. This need not be the case; you just know what you like and what you want. You learn with maturity how to hold to these in a graceful and charming manner. You are most happy when you are acknowledged by others, for your creative contributions and when you are surrounded by your group or 'pride of lions'. You like to snooze lazy Leo style in the sun but are ever ready to pounce on a new idea. As the fifth sign your key phrase is "I create".
SUN: Planet of Radiant Vitality is your planetary ruler.
As the sun's own sign a sense of presence and strong personal awareness is the way your Fire flames. Hot and passionate by nature, ancient Arabic says of Leo, that you are 'Of hot and dry nature (igneous). Its angel is generous; he holds the keys of the future world". The Sun is the plant of radiance and being a shining light for others is definitely your most satisfying role, if you can achieve it. In the body Leo rules the heart, spinal chord. blood circulation, spleen and vital forces. Your vitality burns brightest when you link your creativity with others, through a leadership role or in a position which affords you a degree of autonomy. You don't like taking orders and you hate small-mindedness since you yourself like to take the larger view of things. Ever ready to expand and develop an idea there is no distance between the spark and the flaming up of your fire. You can also go from still to action mode in the blink of an eye. Lion like. Rarely able to resist a chance to be with your 'playmate' and clan, you are capable of burning out by an overload of activities. The right balance of play, rest and work is what stops you from burnout and keeps you healthy and happy.
Sun represents the strength of the human heart and the light of creative impulse. His special message for Leo is to shine as brightly and generously as possible, regardless of the response of others.
Well, here again, much of the above definitely relates to both my daughter and her spouse. They are both creative....she is artistic and he is musical. Although the two are individually different a lot of their qualities are described above and they are excellent qualities. Are you, as a Leo, anything like the above description?
