This Year 2019 Leo is 23rd July to 22nd August
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac which rules Love, playfulness and being the centre of attention., Leo known as the King and Queen of the Zodiac due to their planetary symbol, the Lion. Masculine, fixed, positive and born under the fire sign. With the Sun as their planetary ruler, they possess great charisma and a sunny and shiny personality. Leo is the Royal sign as you might suppose. Prince Charles although a Scorpio has Leo Rising. He got on well with his grandmother who was a Leo. Often the Sun sign admires the person with the Rising sign as they portray what the Sun Sign feels too. Prince George just missed out on being a Leo as he was born in the morning, so he is a Cancerian as the sun didnt enter Leo till later in the day. That is an example that if you are born on the cusp you need to contact an astrologer, such a myself, to give you the correct sign.
Leos are characterised by their warmth, humour, pride, joy and generosity. They being a fixed sign can be stubborn and arrogant but make a good friend. Remarkably creative in almost all aspects of their lives, Leos are independent and dominant. Known to be the most authoritative amongst all the Signs of Zodiac, Leos are often brave-hearts; their confidence, ambition and positive thinking are exemplary and unparalleled. The word “hesitation” or “self-doubt” is not a part of their dictionary.
Driven and determined, often to the degree of excess; most Leos precisely know what they want from a situation in particular, and the life in general. Or as a learned man once said, “At least, they feel and believe they know it all!” Lions tend to be strong-willed, enthusiastic and energetic.
Their ruler Sun bestows them with sparkle and zest – and also with glowing warmth and generosity. Coupled with their self-confidence, this kindness makes most Leos the joy and life of parties, gatherings and group activities.
Most Leo-born natives are also outspoken and brazen, a quality that sometimes goes against them, much like their domineering streak. Courageous, kind hearted and compassionate, the Lion is full of youthful enthusiasm and vigour, and is the proverbial performer – his ruling Sun makes him hugely popular and socially cued in.
When the mighty Lion enters centre stage, everyone notices. This dramatic, creative, and outgoing sign is defined by magnetism. A Leo’s charm can be almost impossible to resist. Whether it’s time spent with family and friends or efforts on the job scene, a Leo is going to bring a lot to the table. Born leaders, they are at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism and innate courtesy brings loyal followers or subordinates. They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and use all their energies, creativity and passion to get whatever they are after.
Leos think and act bigger than others would normally dare. The pursuits and idealism sometimes scare their followers, but their ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend on them. They manage to get out of the rut because they thrive on the adversity.
In his or her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. Outgoing, spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness, Leos are more disillusioned than the average if let down by those they trust. They are not a good judge of character and are inclined to favouritism and an exaggerated faith in their followers which too often ends in disappointment.
The literal symbol of the Sun (Leo's planetary ruler) spells out the flip side—the dark. The dark feels as though the Sun has been rubbed out of the sky. A Leo can brood in these places longer than perhaps necessary, this intense feeling can be misconstrued as drama. And what causes the dark mood? Betrayal is big. And being mocked. Then there's the Leo dark side that others have to deal with. Some of those traits have to do with an overblown sense of self. Leo says, "Who do you think you're dealing with?" That's when you see (Sun) Leo acting high and mighty, and belittling those they see as beneath them. This is the patron who sends back her latte a few times for being not quite hot enough. This is the boss who takes credit for everything the staff does and is in constant self-promotion mode. When others are down on their luck. It's worse when they act like they're sorry, and it's over-the-top insincere. Leos throw temper tantrums, especially if they feel dissed. If you've fallen out of favour with a Leo, by insulting them in some way, it's often a permanent banishment type scenario.
