About the Sun Sign Leo (July 23 to August 22)
The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, self-confident there is no such a word as doubt in their vocabularies, and they are self-controlled. Born leaders, either in support of, or in revolt against, the status quo.
Leo is at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism and innate courtesy of mind bringing out the best of loyalty from subordinates. They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and using all their energies, creativeness and resolution to get it, as well as being certain that they will get whatever they are after. Their followers know where they are with Leonians. Leonians think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers, their practical hardheadedness and ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend on them. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity.
Leo in Relationships
The creative and romantic Lion rules the Zodiac's House of Pleasure, insuring that any romp with this cat will include sensory as well as sensual delights. The playful Lion loves fun and is a supremely social animal. If Leos can act out their fantasies on a public (even private) stage, all the better, for those born under this sign truly believe they're the star. As befits the King/Queen of the Zodiac, Leos are leaders. Their powerful presence, as well as staying power, insures them success in their conquests. Romance is also a princely quality for the Lion, and those who ensnare this passionate animal may well be rewarded with a wonderful and inventive lover. Like the ruling Sun, which is at the center of the universe, Leos love to have the world revolve around them.
Leo is dominated by the Sun, providing its natives with an exuberant and dynamic quality. Strictly speaking, the Sun is a star but, for astrological purposes it is considered to be a ruling planet. In mythological aspects, the planetary ruler of Leo is likened to Apollo, the Roman Sun God. The strongest of all planetary influences, the power of the Sun is so forceful that it can seldom be repressed...although its fine qualities may be neglected or dissipated. The acquisition of knowledge and artistic achievement are keynotes of the Sun's jurisdiction. Natives ruled by this planet put ideas into practice, often overriding all obstacles. Frequently, these individuals are regarded by others as somewhat lucky souls, but this is chiefly due to their inherent optimism which does not allow them to accept temporary setbacks as an indication of failure. The Sun denotes a dignity of manner, integrity of nature and loyalty to a cause. It possesses the gift of good speaking and a magnetic personality...if an effort is put forth to develop these attributes. Such are the positive aspects of the Sun's influence.
