What Does Astrology Reveal About Your Leo Personality
Leo Date: July 23 – August 22
Zodiac Quality: Fixed
Birthstones: Ruby, Carnelian, Garnet, Red Spinel, Red Coral, and Orange Sapphire
The centre of our solar system is the glowing Sun, which just so happens to be your ruler, Leo. Just like the bright and shining celestial Sun you to bring character, support and energy to our world.
In reflecting the characteristics of the Sun, you’re full of dynamic energy. Few star signs have the same level of drive and self-motivation that you do. Your fire element is at the heart of this leonine energy and is recognisable in every asset of your life—work, love and play.
You have a pioneering approach and love to be the first and best at everything you do. Because you exhibit so much self-confidence, you tend to outshine many of your peers who are usually quite prepared to let you take the lead because you do it so well with a sense of generosity and love.
Generosity is one key aspect of your Sun sign. Excuse me for referring to the Sun in so many instances, but it does reflect your personality so well. Warm and impartial in the way you shine your rays of love, you’re happy to distribute what you have either materially or spiritually to anyone and everyone. Giving is a natural part of your nature.
You have a great mind and think big. Your efforts are always sincere and unrelenting. Your sign is one of the fixed zodiac signs, which means you are determined and also at times a little inflexible if you set your mind and heart at something.
You are encouraging to others and like to see your friends and loved ones as successful as yourself, so you never refuse the help that is requested to get them to their goals as well.
You are so dramatic sometimes that some people might think you’re a little over the top. But you don’t care. Because of your love of life and your high degree of optimism, you know that not everyone will accept you for who you are.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a great example of the true Leo spirit. Successful in more than one line of activity, when you hear Arnold speak you can hear his sincerity and see his larger-than-life character coming through in everything he does. As you now know, Arnold has reached a high-level position being Governor of California.
You are dedicated and loyal to a fault. You are a genuine friend but expect the same in return from those with whom you wish to spend your time.
Conversely, you are a proud person and those who choose to tread their life-path with you need to understand that the Leo ego can be severely wounded through any form of disloyalty or under-handedness. If you discover that someone has crossed you, you can be a formidable competitor and will win at any cost.
Lesson in life;
Humility is one of your lessons in life. You love praise and attention because this makes you feel as though your efforts have not been in vain. Success for Leo, however, is not a selfish action as the fruits of your labour are shared with those you love.
Many Leos reach the pinnacle of their professions due to their ambitious nature. Others recognise your unique abilities, even if they don’t know you too well. You make a powerful impression everywhere you go.
You have a competitive spirit that draws you into sports and other games of chance. The totem of the lion is the king of the jungle, full of energy, drive, and control. The physical appetites and level of energy are extraordinarily high and you will take great pleasure in directing these powerful forces into sports activities where you can excel and, if you choose, even pursue this line professionally (just like your totem).
You have an inflexible nature and this is sometimes seen as having an impervious path, demanding excellence from those who work and live with you. This is simply your way of making sure that others aspire to be their best. Unfortunately, you may sometimes be greatly misunderstood.

The power of the Sun is at the heart of your personality Leo and as your ruling planet makes you shine so brightly in life. You, therefore reflect these very traits of star which is at the core of our solar system.
You are a mass of vibrant energy and display the qualities of the Sun in full measure. You are warm, intense and energetic. Therefore, you want to make an impression in everything you do – work, love and your social life as well.
Most Leos are extremely generous and give freely of their time, money and resources. But by the same token, you expect others to reciprocate and do your loyalty is a two-way street. You also like to bring out the best in others. That’s why when you see others holding back you find it hard to not to say something that will help them get out of their rut and become the best they can. You have a desire to see everyone give to the best of their ability. This sometimes makes you appear a tyrant as your aspirations demand more than others can give.
You have an extraordinarily upbeat attitude and your positive mental attitude is one of your greatest assets. You don’t let the negative influences of other people hold you back too much. You tried yourself on the fact that even coming from humble beginnings you’re able to achieve everything you have through this single-minded positive attitude. You like to share this philosophy with others as well.
You often find yourself in the right place at the right time. Some people call this lack but you have the knack of knowing when to strike. You’re able to maximise life’s opportunities which is why others sometimes regard you with envy. But this doesn’t worry you. You steam ahead irrespective of others’ opinions.
Because you like to share your joys and successes you are sometimes unaware that people regard this as bragging. Some might even call you a show-off, but this is an incorrect opinion of you. Your dramatic flair is part and parcel of your inbuilt zest for life, love of people and optimistic attitude. Life to you is like a stage on which to perform and express your talents in full measure.
Life to you is a stage on which you must perform to your best ability. You exude charisma; creativity and a personal style all of your own. Like many who strut the stage of screen and music, you also want to be No. 1 and present yourself as someone special with talents uniquely yours. Many high-profile celebrities and personalities are born under your sign of Leo, including Robert Redford, Bill Clinton, Pete Sampras and Madonna. All of them have made their mark in their own way and undoubtedly will remain the standard for others to follow.
Your honesty and integrity is your signature trademark and you are in blunt in your openness at times. But people know you as a genuine friend who is always ready to give an honest answer. It seems that even if you can’t help someone with their specific problem, you somehow still manage to exude a warm and reassuring vibration that makes them feel better for being with you.
You have a need to prove you are better than others which can sometimes be a problem for you.
Humility should be cultivated if you are to sidestep problems in your relationships. You will be recognised for your dynamic energy and self-motivated action.
You don’t need to big-note yourself to others. People will instantly recognise your abilities and even look up to you.
If this adulation begins to go to your head, you must listen to the cautionary advice of a good friend when s/he says, “Get off your high horse, Leo!”
Leo, the lion is your totem and is lord of the jungle. Power, muscularity, grace, and ferocity are some of the traits associated with this creature. Study it well to understand yourself better. You’ll come to know that your physical appetites and general level of energy are extraordinarily high. It is no overstatement to say that you need to be physically mobile and fully engaged in meaningful work and social activities to feel good. You shine in almost anything you do and will without any shadow of a doubt make your mark in this world.
You are a born leader and people always look up to you for direction guidance and security. At times you are hard and demand excellence from them because you exhibit this in your own actions. People gravitate towards you and you will no doubt be capable of reaching the zenith of whatever activity you choose in your life.
You tend to be a leader in your field because you have such a pioneering spirit which is also tied in with your desire to be the best. On the one hand, you’re quite happy to pursue a life in which you follow the rules and regulations of others but by far prefer to blaze your own trail through the jungles of life.
It is through this attitude you will carve your own niche and make that name for yourself. Either way, you cannot help but be noticed and make an impression everywhere they go. This is the majesty and royal bearing of your star sign – Leo.
Are you a cusp baby?
Leo - Cancer cusp ( July 22 - 29 )
Being born between the 22nd and the 29th of July makes you a rather unique Leo – born native. Apart from the abovementioned personality traits you also exhibit the sensitive characteristics of your previous star sign, which is Cancer.
While Leo is a masculine and fiery sign, Cancer is a feminine and watery one. What this will do is balance the aggressive masculine traits of Leo, making you a softer and, at times, moodier individual. You will tend to absorb the stresses of people and the environment around you and therefore you need to balance your life much more carefully than the typical full – blown Leo character.
Along with your loyal and generous nature, you’re endowed with the intuitive qualities of Cancer. Not only that, both Leo and Cancer love people, but with this combination of zodiac signs, you will truly be a champion of the downtrodden and underprivileged. You have deep and compassionate interests in being of assistance to others.
Being born on this borderline cusp also indicates that you have a receptive as well as retentive memory. Your ability to recall facts and figures is notable; however, you can also get stuck on emotional problems, not knowing how to shake them off. Try to live more in the present.
Another aspect of the Moon-the ruler of Cancer that sometimes doesn’t work well for you is its maternal nature. You sometimes veer too close to the mothering/smothering lane, which can put people off.
In addition you love to mix with all sorts of people. Social activities are an essential ingredient in your development. You are a great success socially because you can convey your wisdom to others so well-Cancerians have very expressive faces.
You’re a great organiser; you love your home and family and tend to be flamboyant, but you are also very sentimental.
Self – discipline is something you need to develop in your life, and also take care of your physical health, which will, on many occasions, be dependent upon your emotional state.
Leo - Virgo Cusp ( August 16 - 23 )
The other end of the spectrum is the Leo-Virgo cusp and if you’re born between the 16th and 23rd of August you’ll be prone to possessing some of the traits of the next star sign to you, which is Virgo. You may or may not know that Virgo is often fastidious, fault – finding and highly motivated by intellectual aspects of life.
With this combination you must be careful not to become too set in your ways and ingrained with ideologies and opinions that often make you appear a hard taskmaster. When you do express your criticism of something it’s more than likely because you’ve analysed and summed up a situation correctly before acting out your thoughts. While some people might find this an annoying habit, others will never hesitate to involve you in their work. These people recognise your natural talents and will invite you onto their social scene and include you in their personal projects, as your expertise is highly valued.
Serving others is usually seen as a menial and undesirable activity by most. You see it with a whole new perspective. It feels good for you to help others, to see them achieve what makes them happy and if you can be part of that in some way, it gives you pleasure.
You make an excellent teacher because you have the knack of explaining the ins and outs of even the most complicated subject in a simple manner. Unlike others who try to impress with their knowledge, you are unassuming and genuinely work hard at being good at what you do.
The Virgo element makes you perceptive and caring of others, and you are sometimes in a better position to be of service to others by not exerting your strength but rather sitting back and allowing others to lead you. This is the unique opportunity you have by being born on the borderline of these two-star signs.
Having this combination of traits makes you fiery and fond of displaying your creative and intellectual abilities. It also makes you very dependable, and friends will always be able to rely on you.
Although you enjoy a full social agenda, the shy and retiring component of Virgo will often make you slip in and out of the social scene and this is probably a good thing because it will help balance your life.
It is intended to shed light on many aspects of the querent’s life. To use this, concentrate on a question to put before the cards.
Your name is a vibration associated with a number. Discover which planet is ruling you and what the effects of your name will have on your life and destiny.
The Three Types of Leo
July 23 - Aug 5
If you were born between the 23rd of July and 5th of August, the Sun rules you in greater measure than your Leo brothers and sisters. You are charismatic to say the least and will attract all the right sort of people and circumstances in your life to give you a fulfilling and successful destiny. You may even find yourself occupying a high office, political portfolio, or at least will make it to the top of the pile in your chosen career.
Aug 6 - Aug 14
If you’re a Leo born between the 6th and 14th of August, you have a strong need for adventure and will look for ways to enhance your life. Travel and other activities which take you away from the humdrum of your day-to-day life will be necessary to fulfill you. Freedom and independence are the keywords in the lives of Leos born during this period.
Aug 15 - Aug 22
You must be careful not to let your impatience and anger get the better of you if you’re a Leo born between the 15th and 23rd of August. You have the strong influence of Mars dominating your birth date and therefore, you have the tendency to be reactive and also belligerent at times. You have a very warm and generous heart but need to be the boss. Your main lesson in life is humility.
Leo Man ♂
SNAPSHOT: Brawny, Mesmeric, Indomitable, Faithful
You are ruled by the Sun, a masculine planet, which signifies authority, verve, and intensity. You’re hugely charismatic and captivating, and love getting adulation. You are also a big-hearted individual who showers loved ones with encouragement and wealth, but because of your Lion- like character, you demand an equal measure of responsiveness as well. Socially, you enjoy an eclectic mix of temperaments and have a fondness for elegant environments. On the whole, you’re a secure individual who is in control of their emotions.
Leo-born individuals are well-proportioned and usually athletic in build. However, it would be wise to make physical exercise and diet a regular part of your daily regime. You exhibit a good measure of sex appeal, but you can be quite abashed about it. Being ruled by the Sun, you seek exhilaration in all your pursuits, including relationships. You can be unusually passionate about children, sports and entertaining exploits.
You are pure and childlike in your affection for others, but your dark side reveals itself in opinionated stances and arrogance. You’re also enormously compassionate and tender. As one of the most regal signs of the zodiac, you possess natural valor, confidence and an optimistic frame of mind, and you refuse to stop. Come hell or high water, you hold your head high, which many perceive as pompousness rather than courage.
Your personality is governed by strong zodiac elements, which makes you very exacting, and you make demands of others who may not have an inkling of your thought processes. You have a knack for pushing people beyond their comfort zone and helping them realize their own potential. Of course, you are thinking about their best interests, but few will be receptive to such intensity.
You may exhibit a streak of impulsiveness, but you can blame this on your imaginative mind and keen desire to share your light-bulb moments with the world. Your self-confidence is high, especially when compared to other signs of the zodiac. This may spark silent resentment when you find that others are obstinately closed to your perceptive insights.
You should practise patience and tolerance, Leo, as your exacting and aggressive demands can backfire on you. As the saying goes, ‘you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink’. Let it go; others may not be as thirsty as you.
There could be occasions when your staunch philosophical beliefs get in the way of forging healthy relationships with others. Such obstinacy can mean the end of the relationship. Try to find a delicate balance between discernment and effervescence.
When it comes to children, you’re strict as well as compassionate. However, employ care when dealing with your offspring. Some would rather be led gently than prodded fiercely. Your sense of protection is never governed by ego; it is there to enable them to succeed in life through hard work and tenacity.
You’re the epitome of courage, conviction, optimism, and self-confidence, and you are a role model for those around you. Your personality is a mixed bag of enthusiasm, competitiveness, and aggression, and you see nothing more clearly than the route to realizing your goals. Though you’re perceived as rigid and obstinate, you are just persistent and uncompromising when it comes to executing your plans.
Leo Woman ♀
SNAPSHOT: Gracious, Even-handed, Truthful, Imaginative, Glitzy
Leo women are ambassadors of elegance, poise and friendliness, and they have enormously refined tastes. They clearly exhibit the prowess of the Lioness, their ruling totem. Like many felines, you prefer the solitary confines of your world. Although you can be a trailblazer in solitude, it would be a waste of your brilliance and protective instincts, which make you a multifaceted and fascinating woman.
You have the ability to forge a sensational connection with children because you are a child at heart. This youthfulness allows you to remain young even as you grow older. You thoroughly enjoy companionship and revel in the company of both men and women. Blessed with inner charm and braininess, you are an expert when it comes to quirky rejoinders and witty repartee, and you indulge in conversations as long as they don’t bore you.
Your candour can catch people off guard. It throws them into confusion and they will struggle to find a plausible comeback to your straight forward and, at times, blunt demands or responses. No other zodiac sign epitomises the adage ‘what you see is what you get’ better than you, Leo.
Just as the Sun is the focus of the solar system, you too aspire to be in control wherever you go, whether it’s the school canteen or the board of a big company. Regardless of the circumstances or scale, you refuse to be relegated to a lesser position. You are determined to achieve remarkable highs in life. This desire is not fame-driven. Instead, you are fuelled by your desire to contribute to the world at large.
When it comes to fashion, you love to buy clothes and accessories that reflect your striking personality. You like to experiment with different looks and stand out from the crowd. Your true joy comes from securing a bargain, and you unabashedly haggle to get a price that puts a smile on your face. You ride high on your self-esteem, and even when an invitation calls for casual attire, you show up impeccably clothed and groomed. It is not in your nature to don an unkempt look, even during sleep!
As an individual, you are gracious, hospitable and overflowing with warmth. You find your comfort zone wherever you go, and it’s usually elegant and slightly luxurious. Like a lioness, you love to be admired and you like to find the perfect setting that enhances the way you look.
Leo, you handpick your friends according to certain standards and ideals, and anything less is unacceptable. To you, nothing assumes greater significance than integrity and loyalty, and you may find your- self enormously wounded by betrayal, especially since your intuition is usually spot-on.
Even if your formative years may be marred by struggle or misfortune, your grit and astuteness will allow you to carve out a promising future for yourself and your family. People who exhibit similar strength and ambition earn your respect, and you are attracted to those who are as powerful as you.

Leo children are blessed with keen intuitiveness and self-confidence, from an early age itself. They are fiercely independent and resist the idea of garnering any help what so ever.
As a parent, you may liken your little wonder as a small lion cub, entailing keen intervention and management skills on your part as a parent.
The Leo child thrives best in an open-air independent environment to aptly cultivate their skills and capacity. They curl up into solitude in the face of forceful nudging and respond favourably to gentle and careful directives instead. If you expect your young Leo to stand engaged with menial tasks, a mighty surprise awaits you, dear parent. Unskilled, boring tasks demean their inherent intelligence and confidence, and they are quick to wander off to attempt something far more exciting instead.
In terms of their personality, Leo kids are a bundle of warm, loving joy. They are cheerful, energetic and somewhat boisterous as well as cheeky, but in essence, they totally steal your heart. Their innate effervescence compels you to overlook the blemishes in their character, just for the sheer delight of having them in your life.
The Leo child basks best in the limelight at school and often leaps to don a lead role. Puberty can be a bit of a challenge when their emotions turn turbulent and dramatic, screaming for the freedom to grow on their own terms. Leo girls are happiest in the sun and will be naturally drawn to a sport or an active outdoor hobby.
Your Leo child craves love, affection and attention, and by showering them with what they yearn for most, you successfully foster a promising and healthy bond with them for a lifetime. At the same time, employ judiciousness for the young lion also desires his or her own undisturbed space, their own time out.
Since they are enormously energetic, they naturally desire their own retreat to their “cave”, to revive their lost adrenaline rush. They race through life at a pace that would leave most gasping for breath, refusing to slow down regardless of the circumstance. Surely, they are front line leaders born to succeed in the race of life.
Leo children react advantageously to constructive critique rather than bland criticism, which demean their self-esteem. They definitely detest a public display of disapproval against them, especially in front of their peers. Invest care and sensitivity or you may end up scaring them for life.
Ruled by the Sun, these kids are most active in open-air and warmth and love to play, frolic and regale you with their antics and dramatic mannerisms. With their colossal self-confidence, they may be hesitant to attempt things slightly off the league. They may require gentle persuasion on your part to steer them in the right course.
Being competitive by nature, your young Leo will be naturally inclined to sports such as football, basketball and swimming. All outdoor, high energy sports are perfect for them. Fondness for physical activities comes quite naturally to them. They may even choose to pursue this skill at a professional level later in life. This would guarantee both personal fulfilment and an opportunity at raking in a considerable amount of money as well. MORE ABOUT LEO CHILD… →»CLICK HERE!«←
Leo Lover 💕
Leo loves to indulge and has a penchant for love affairs, pleasure, and entertainment. As the fifth zone of the Zodiac, it is the indisputable sign of romance and inventiveness, and a fervent and enthusiastic social life is intrinsic to their personality.
Because your personality is welcoming, optimistic and affable, you are someone who attracts love without even trying. You can bond effortlessly and are comfortable in the company of the opposite sex. Whether you are male or female, the thrill of conquest is an instinctive urge in the Lion. However, finding your ideal soul mate may be a difficult task. Your ambitiousness comes into play, which makes you excruciatingly hard to please, and you believe that you deserve a lot more than what you usually get.
You never make a commitment in haste. You’re easy-going and open to life and the diversity that it has to offer. Because you regard sex as a form of creative expression, sexuality becomes a vital part of your ideology, particularly if you’re a Leo male.
Being lion-like at heart, you tend to dominate social circles. While your peers may accept this as part of your personality, strangers may find it controlling, especially when love is at stake. This may not be the most ideal situation, so employ wisdom and care.
In my experience, Leos experience a multitude of friendships and affairs before settling down with their chosen partner. This is why contentment may elude you until midlife. Another factor is the influence of Saturn and Uranus ruling the marriage sector of your zodiac. While Saturn is an older planet, Uranus is deemed progressive. A combination of the two can often create friction and delays, which may impact on your love life.
When you finally connect with your soul mate, you do so with consider- able commitment. Since Leo is a fixed sign of the zodiac, you’re blessed with the fortitude to remain dedicated at all times. You love and care intensely and, true to your totem, you are also territorial towards your loved ones. Make sure you don’t let possessiveness stifle your marriage or long-term relationships as this can rupture the trust and devotion you share.
You’re a harsh judge in relationships, and you tend to label your partner as either an asset or a liability. Your lover is not a commodity, but at the same time they must socially and professionally enhance your status in the eyes of others. If you’re with someone who doesn’t make you feel proud, you are likely to find someone more appropriate.
When you finally unite with someone on a soul level, you remain unfazed and optimistic about plunging into the sacred vows of matrimony. Marriage is a lifetime commitment and you will give it your best shot. Love will complete you in ways you can’t even imagine, Leo. KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR POTENTIAL PARTNER →» CLICK HERE!«←
Leo Friend 👏
Because of your self-important disposition, you are often perceived as self-centred. Of course, there is no denying that you love to bask in attention and boast or exaggerate to keep your audience engaged. You find yourself at peace in the spotlight. After all, a lion would never huddle in a remote corner, would it?
Once people get past this superficial façade, they will find an enormously faithful and generous friend, even though you have zero tolerance for betrayal and dishonesty. Deceit is the shortest route to ending a friend- ship with Leo. At the same time, friends of Leo-born individuals may regret not having invested in a pair of ear plugs as Leos like to go on about their feats and accomplishments.
When your friendship is finally on firm ground, your sincerity and affection is incomparable and you are devoted to fostering the friendship for life. People always look forward to your company due to your easy-going disposition, and you can be relied on to contribute to an event. At the same time, there may be people with low self-confidence who may not be as receptive to your cheerful and demonstrative ways.
Your big-heartedness, affection and friendliness come with a huge price tag as you expect your friends to express an equivalent degree of gratitude. Unless your trust is taken for granted, you are a devoted friend who will stick by your peers through thick and thin.
Leo can sometimes be a gambler in relationships, even though they rely on their refined intuition to make the right choices. Even if you are flawed in your judgment, you smile at the lesson learnt and walk proudly forward. It is unlikely that you will repeat the mistake. You’re a fast learner!
Due to their competitive and nurturing streak, Leo males and females can be aggressively possessive of their prospective mate. When you think of a lion protecting its pride, you can understand why. If someone shows even a miniscule of interest in what is yours, you roar out loud!
Unless you’ve actually befriended a Leo, it’s hard to describe exactly the ardent level of loyalty that they possess and are prepared to share with you. Now, mind you, you may not see this as a superficial trait. but believe me, deep down in their heart of hearts, if they’ve selected you as a friend, they will stand by you through thick or thin and be available when and if you need them, even at great expense and self-sacrifice to themselves.
I commence the description of Leo as a friend in this way mainly to point out the fact that appearances can be deceptive, especially with someone like a Leo when we talk of friendship. Why, you ask? Well, the first impression people usually have of a Leo is one of self-centredness. Of course, Leos do have a tendency to want to show off while relating (i.e. bragging) about their experiences, and one would wonder whether such a person with so strong a level of self-identity has actually ever had any time to put into another person in the mode of friendship. The answer is emphatically, ‘yes’!
The loyalty a Leo exhibits has been idealised throughout history as the central theme of friendship, and fortunately for Leo, they understand this as a primary drive.
If you happen to be a friend of Leo there are times when you may have to grin and bear the many tedious monologues that come your way. Of course, it’s all meant to be for your own good and comes from an honest space of care and love, but patience is something you will need to have copious amounts of if you’re going to hang in there and make Leo your best friend.
One way a Leo shows affection is through pampering the people they consider part of their trusted inner circle. Gifts, kind and loving gestures, praise, and all sorts of other ego-boosting remarks will make you feel hugely special in their eyes. Therefore, getting back to the loyalty aspect, you must never take their generosity for granted. If the ferocity of the king of the jungle is unleashed upon you, you may not survive; but if you do, most likely you will never see your Leo friend again. This is how seriously they take loyalty.
At times you will feel as if you’re the one giving a lot of support to your Leo friend, but actually there’s an underlying dynamic here that indeed reflects the fact that, by helping Leo, you are, in a way, also helping your- self. Throughout this mode of exchange, Leo will always be motivated to respond and reciprocate whatever kind of help and support you’ve offered to them. KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS →»HERE!«←
Leo Enemy 😠
Generally speaking, Leo, you are a good-natured, warm and generous person, but when someone upsets you, they better watch out! Small- minded or mean-spirited people are likely to anger you, but the real storm hits when someone breaks your trust or steals something from you, such as ideas or possessions.
Just as a lion stalks its prey, so too will Leo-born individuals. Your prey may not hear you coming, but they will feel your bite and be deafened by your roar before you end the relationship forever.
At times you may feel isolated and burnt out in relationships. This is because others can’t match your level of dedication. At the same time, if you light a lantern for someone, you invariably illuminate your own path, so the more you help others, the more you stand to gain.
Leo, you regard your views and opinions as far more important than the general consensus, and if someone attempts to slander or demean your vision, they better brace themselves for the consequences. You respond to constructive criticism, not public humiliation.
You have an amazing knack for defending yourself, and you can debate your opponent with a piercing comeback. You make your resentment obvious, and those who displease you know exactly how you feel.

Leo Light and Shadow 🌓
The light and the dark are part of human nature and each star sign exhibits this polarity. It is the yin and yang of life and once we confront these shadowy areas within ourselves the sooner we are able to break free of all self-limiting behaviours and habits.
Leo: The light side 🌕
Your aura is palpable. In other words, people only have to walk into the same room as you to feel your dazzling presence. This, as I have already mentioned, is because of your connection to the solar disc, which is the ruler of Leo. You radiate sunshine and joy wherever you go.
Leo has the ability to heal and uplift others, even unconsciously so. Through your personality and warm gestures others feel happy and inspired by your actions. People look up to you and therefore Leo is one of the better role models of the zodiac in terms of what is like to be an all-round good person.
People admire you as a leader and in your social, professional and even family life lives you take command and help steer people in the right direction. You are loyal in family life and make a great parent. You only have to look at the lioness with her cubs to see just how protective and nurturing she is.
Your intuition is very strong and you are able to couple this with a deep intuitive power as well. You can apply that to your commercial life where you have a knack of spotting a good deal and exercising your great sense of timing. You are a born salesperson; therefore, your words contain great power to convince others of your position. You are persuasive and, even if people oppose you at first, it doesn’t take long for you to bring them around to your way of thinking. Your enthusiasm is infectious and everyone you come in touch with will feel the joy that you do.
Leo: The shadow side 🌑
Your power is so strong that it is sometimes overwhelming. If you do become the boss or take on the leadership role (or rather should I say ‘when’), you must be careful not to become overbearing in your manner. It is one thing to be respected, but another to be feared. Others may find your power just too much to handle. If you set yourself a course of action, you have the tendency to go at it full-throttle and may sometimes not be reasonable enough to listen to opinions or suggestions of others. This can be a mistake and cause you to alienate the very people who can become your best allies.
Try to listen a little more and don’t always assume that you are 100 percent correct. Your major life lessons centre on accepting that we are all equals and yes, you are able to mix with all types of people, but your ego can sometimes get the better of you. Don’t let the phrase ‘might makes right’ dominate your relationships.
Fortunately, Leo has the spiritual Sun as its ruler, which means that you are able to adopt a position of self-awareness and slowly but surely eradicate these character defects, which will bring you to a much more fulfilling position in life.
Leo – On the Home Front 🏠
Leo homes exude the elegance and splendour of a palace, in their endeavour to grab awe from people all around. You settle for nothing but the best and as the king of the jungle, your home epitomises a regal style befitting your royal sign of the zodiac.
Just as the lion leads the pride, so do you Leo, head your household. Sharing your home in all its magnificence with loved ones gives you immense fulfillment, though you also expect others to respect your territory. Remember your family needs you as much as others so stand guard against losing yourself in socialising which may rob your loved ones of the time they most desire with you. Friends come and go but family is where the heart belongs.
Since Leo rules love and romance, unsurprisingly your bedroom will don a distinctive and exclusive treatment, the perfect place to play out your love fantasies with your perfect someone. You’d like it to reflect opulence and luxury, with drapes and covers of superlative quality. The bathroom will also have a pungent hint of grandeur, possessing indulgent accessories such as an electric towel warmer for that dash of lavishness.
A Leo is generally inclined to warm colours with hints of striking contrasts that catch the eye. Other appealing spots in the Leo home are brass and gold ornamentation, a deluge of natural light and earthy yet elegant lamps at night. The décor is anything but boring, in fact, eclectic to create the right balance of old and new.
Much like your own nature Leo, you prefer to use bold, flamboyant and dramatic patterns with plush textiles such as silk. Animal prints may also catch your fancy and be used to grab eyeballs in the room. Soothing artwork, a sunset or sunrise, will grace your walls and your furniture is often of natural make, such as leather.
Leos like to imbue their homes with entertainment, delight and inventiveness. A home theatre can be your surest necessity due to your penchant for creativity and your keen interest in sharing experiences. If not, you clearly mark out a performance area of sorts, fully giving expression to the hidden entertainer in you.
The Leo theme of “I Will or I Create” will be evident throughout the home. Being ruled by the Sun, a blistering, intense planet, colours such as yellows, oranges and other autumn tones will appeal to you most. You love the expanse of sunlight pouring into your home and are likely to have unrestrained open windows welcoming the sunlight to illuminate even the most dark corners of the house.
In contrast and in deference to being the king of the jungle, your home can also be brightened by patches of greenery in areas not so well lit. Feeding into the light pouring into your space, they grow in abundance adding an altogether different hue to your palace, your home. Outdoors can thus be utilized as a part of your haven, lending an overall charm accentuated by greens and glass sections for a regal look.
