Planet: Sun Element: Fire Quadruplicity: Fixed Gemstone: Ruby
LEO The Sun is the ruling planet of this sign, and every Leo’s individual inner Sun needs to shine out. Usually it does, and friends benefit from its rays, for Leo’s need to enjoy and get as much out of life as possible, and like to see their loved ones doing the same. They are well organized. They like to be leader, but to those they respect and admire they are quite willing to be their slaves. Less exuberant types may will find them rather overwhelming at times, and indeed their worst faults are showing off and being “bossy”. But the bossiness is often the result of their excellent organizing ability getting the better of them. A Leo can often organize other people’s lives much better than the individuals themselves and is not reluctant to tell them so! But Leos rule through warmth and kindly encouragement, spurring their victims into creater creative effort, better use of time, giving up smoking, glamorizing themselves, and so on.
Somewhere in every Leo is a creative streak, and it needs positive expression. Friends should encourage every effort Leo makes, because Leos more then most need encouragement. This is particularly the case with Leo children, who can crumble under nagging criticism, but blossom with constructive encouragement. Leos in love are passionate and faithful, and will express their natural generosity towards their partners in no small way. But they are more sensitive and easily hurt than most people realize.
Leo In Love Leo’s are the lovers of the zodiac, a Sign born for love and romance. When it comes to love a Leo doesn’t want to dip their toe in the Sea of Love, they want to dive headfirst into the deep end. You’d think that they’d get hurt by love, which they do from time to time, but it’s so addictive and so enjoyable, that they’ll keep coming back for more, time after time after time..
Leo At Work The Leo is highly motivated and energetic, preferring to always keep busy no matter the situation. They are go getters with high ambition, always looking at things from a cup half full point of view. They are highly loyal to their coworkers and employers; however their level of creativity and need to complete any project to the fullest often results in them being their own boss, to which they have a high preference for. The high level of creativity and energy of the Leo makes them best suited to work in the arts and entertainment.
Loves: Loves to be in love! For Leo is the sign who loves with all their heart and flirts with all their might. They fiercely defend their honour and court glory with a sovereign pride that benefits this regal sign.
Hates: People who whinge and complain. People who are greedy and don’t pull their weight or give their fair share, the ungenerous will find no friend here.
Needs To Cultivate: Much more tolerance and forgiveness, for their inflexible nature makes them store up such fixed ideas about people and situations, they refuse to budge on their first impressions, even when they are wrong. They need to gain a more natural sense of humility.
You might be seething under the surface and making a noble effort to not let it show. The emotional Moon and antsy Mars joined in your house of hidden things suggests you may not even realize what is bothering you until someone says something that triggers a response. With Moon/Mars squaring Jupiter in your communication zone, you will probably circle around the issue instead of getting to the point. You may believe you demonstrate strength when you squash your feelings, but what you are actually doing is babysitting a powder keg that is begging for a match.
