LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is an easily identifiable constellation due to its extreme brightness. Leo the Lion is one of the earliest recognized constellations. The Mesopotamians are known to have documented the “lion” constellation. Leo is a highly recognizable constellation, as it is one of the few constellations that resemble its namesake. It is fairly easy to find because the “pointer stars” of the Big Dipper point to Leo. Leo lies between Cancer to the west and Virgo to the east.

Leo is ruled by the Sun and is the sign belonging to the life-giving father. Leo is a fixed sign of the element Fire. What this means is that the fires of Leo’s spirit burn long and strong.

The unevolved Leo takes control by force and rules in a dictatorial fashion which is very much driven by his or her ego. The more evolved Leo’s flames burn from the fuel of divine inspiration. All his or her efforts are then directed for the purpose of creativity where he/she seeks to unite divine will into matter through creativity. The more evolved Leos are extremely sensitive, yet this sensitivity is very well hidden from potential antagonists. Leos generally like to organise the lives of everyone around them. They do this because they truly feel that they are acting to the good benefit of those close to them.

If Leos are angered, they have a tendency to immediately climb to the top of their throne, assume their regal role and relegate any given challenger back to their appropriate and fitting place. They literally roar at those who anger them and then once all is said and done they move on, forgive and forget as if the incident never took place.
Leos generally like to assume the role of ruler or entertainer. As a ruler he is most fitting, but prefers to rule over his own creation rather than manage a brainchild of someone else. He is therefore most inclined, when the timing is right, to band together a group of loyal and productive individuals who he keeps under his wise and protected guidance and then proudly and effectively leads them along a road of self-improvement where their own improvements will lead to his own. As entertainers Leos are dramatic, confident and proud. They enjoy taking command of an audience and working a crowd like putty in their hands.

Leo arrives into this life with a silent inner confidence that others can sense. This is what makes it easy for him/her to inspire others and win their trust. At their best Leos are affectionate, optimistic and cheerful individuals and can usually be counted upon to do the right thing. Leos love to go about town and have a good time. They are often found having a special interest in art, theatre, sports and the like. Leos like to think big and are always aspiring to grander and more elevated state of being. If you support them in their missions,  give them encouragement and praise, you will soon gain their loyalty, confidence and devotion. For those well deserving, Leos have the capacity to be the most devoted companion in every sense of the word. If you please them they will shower you with gifts and generous deeds and will make sure you every need is met.

The way Leos deal with their enemies is at the complete opposite extreme. They fight ruthlessly and attack with confidence and cunning, gnashing and gnarling their teeth. They generally tend to make formidable opponents, as half the battle is already won, with their unwavering confidence and expectation of their win and favorable outcome. Yet Leos rarely plot, scheme or enter into dodgy dealings. They tend to wear their heart on their sleeve and expect everyone else to behave the same. In fact, they have difficulty keeping even their own secret plans to themselves, as their excitement usually overcomes them as they need to share their creations with others, often to gain additional glory.

In love, Leos love has no boundaries. They are eternally romantic, devoted and adoring, the passionate poet and the considerate lover. Leos love with a possessive kind of love, often too possessive for their own or their partners good. They also tend to have fixed and stubborn minds and are very slow to change their mind if ever. According to them, the best opinions and ideas to consider are their own.

Leos are hard and loyal workers, especially if they respect and admire those whom they work for. They have a need to express their enthusiasm for life in the work that they do. They usually have blessings of good vitality an strong recuperative powers.
