Leo Sun Sign


Around 24 July – around 23 August

Symbol: The Lion Quality: Fixed Element: Fire Ruler: Sun

Leo’s lion symbol was probably derived from an Egyptian goddess, Sekhmet, a lion-headed deity who represented the Sun at its height in the sky at mid-day. This time of the year also coincided with the Sun at its brightest in the sky. Since then, the king of the planets, the Sun, and the king of the animals have been strongly linked. Leo is associated with so-called regal qualities such as fearlessness, courage and wisdom. As we saw while looking at the planets, the power of the Sun can be a force for creativity and dignity, but, if left to run amok, can lead to a need to conquer, rule and dominate as well.

The planets reflect different aspects of these qualities when they reside in Leo. For instance, Mercury can display his creative abilities through thoughts and ideas.

KEY WORDS: Proud, noble, generous, creative, warm-hearted.
