Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Leo is the fifth sign of the Zodiac and the second of the Fire Element triplicity, situated by element between Aries and Sagittarius. Leo is a sign of Fixed Quality and is ruled by the Sun itself. The Zodiac glyph is the Lion, which is symbolic of leadership, courage, passion and pride in one’s style as denoted by the notorious lion’s mane symbolic of one’s hair style. The sign of the entertainer, Leo is interested in the show, in play, performance and fun and the directing and production that go into making the game or performance purposeful and worthy of playing and watching. Often fiercely proud and deeply passionate, people born under the sign of Leo are usually much more inclined or attracted to being the performer and center of attention than a ‘mere’ spectator. Vanity, pride, stubborn, controlling, flamboyant and showy, ego centric, dictatorial attitudes are common issues. Often vacillating between superiority and inferiority, confidence and lack of confidence, willfulness and lack of will, their lives can be filled with drama. While all people and signs must learn this lesson, Leo is challenged perhaps above all signs to remember that they ‘have’ an ego and they play roles versus they ‘are’ an ego and they are their roles. Positively, Leo is fun loving, entertaining, creative, romantic, playful, sporty, capable, noble, leadership oriented and exciting. Leo is about entertainment, fun, games, romance and creative self expression. Common occupations include actors, entertainers, musicians, producers and directors, athletes, coaches, artists, astrologers and popular personalities of all kinds.
Popular Leo personalities include:
- Mick Jagger – rock star
- Madonna – pop music star & actress
- Hulk Hogan – -wrestling champion
