The Sun is your ruling planet Leo. Of course the Sun is not really a
planet; it is the centre of our solar system. And, as above, so below!
You shine as brightly as the Golden globe because you reflect the
characteristics of the heavenly body that rules your star sign!
You too are a ball of dynamic energy. You are warm, bright and
self-motivated, and you want to make an impression in everything you do
— your work, your love life and your social life.
Because you are extremely generous, you expect others to be just as
big-hearted. So when you see others holding back, you find it hard to
not jump in and try to change that. You want to see everyone giving to
the best of their ability. To other people, you can look like a bit of a
tyrant, asking for more than they can give.
When you are feeling upbeat, you carry people away with your energy, and
they love you for it. You love sharing your joys and successes with the
people you love, and when you do, you are magnanimous — you never give a
thought to getting anything in return. There are few star signs who
really understand the nature of giving, but Leo seems to have perfected
You also have a great sense of timing. When you offer a friendly word or
gesture of encouragement, you pick the exact moment when it will have
greatest impact. You always seem to be in the right place at the right
time. You’re lucky this way.
Try to remember that your strong sense of self can be misinterpreted by
others — understatement could sometimes be a more effective way for you
to show your loyalty and express your generosity.
Some people think you are a show-off, but this too is a mistake. Your
dramatic flair is part and parcel of your zest for life, your love of
people and your optimism. For you, life is a stage on which you can
perform and express your talents.
You may not be a performer on the entertainment stage, but Mick Jagger,
a Leo, is, and he is a very good example of the strutting, egotistical
nature of Leo. Mick exudes charisma, creativity and a personal style all
his own. Not only that, but he has embedded his brand name as No. 1 in
the rock industry, decade after decade. On the stage of life, you too
will want to be No. 1, and to present yourself as someone special, with
Loyalty is your trademark. People know you are a genuine friend who is
always ready to lend a hand. Even if you can’t help someone with their
specific problem, you still manage to send out a warm and reassuring
vibration that makes them feel better.
On the other hand, you also have a need to ‘one-up’ others. A little
more humility wouldn’t hurt. You will get plenty of praise and
recognition for your energy and your self-motivation — you don’t need to
big-note yourself. People will instantly recognise your abilities, and
many will look up to you. Try not to let this go to your head; remind
yourself occasionally to ‘get off your high horse’.
Leo’s totem is the lion, lord of the jungle — full of muscularity, grace
and ferocity. This means that your physical appetites and general level
of energy are extraordinarily high. You need to be physically mobile and
fully engaged in meaningful work and social activities to feel good.
You are a born leader: people naturally gravitate to you, and look to
you for guidance and security. This is especially true if you are born
in the very first part of Leo - that is you're born between 24th July
and 3rd August. At times you can seem a hard taskmaster, demanding
excellence from them — this is just a reflection of your own actions,
your own approach, but keep an eye out for it, and keep it under control.
For Leos born between the 4th and 14th of August, Jupiter and
Sagittarius have a strong sway over your life. You are adventurous and
love to travel, learn about new cultures and explores the world and
people. Mostly easygoing you attract many friends and seem to be in the
right place at the right time. You're one of the lucky Leos.
Are you a Leo born between the 15th and 23rd August? Then your fighting
spirit is second to none! Nothing gets in the road of your ambitions so
its quite clear that you will achieve what you set your heart upon. My
only comment is that you should never tread on anyone's toes on the way
up the ladder of success. You might just have to deal with them on the
Generally you have a pioneering spirit; this is connected to your desire
to be the best. So while you could be quite happy with a life where you
follow other people’s rules and regulations, mostly you’ll much prefer
to blaze your own trail.
This means you will carve out your own niche and make a name for
yourself. You’ll shine in almost everything you do, and will without a
doubt make your mark in the world — you can reach the top of the ladder,
no matter what field you choose.
