Leo is the 5th Sign of the Zodiac. The most important thing in life to Leo is to have fun. Leo has an ability to incorporate some fun into almost any situation. They will entertain, often quite unwittingly.
Leo likes to be in control and this can come across as being “bossy”. Of course, they do not see it as bossy, but almost everybody else does. Leo will not be bossed themselves and if anybody tries this on they will find themselves meeting a very definite brick wall.
Leo will do almost anything if they are asked, but if they are told to do it, they will rebel, often to the point of creating problems in their own life.
Leo has extremely good organising skills but have no desire at all to be organised by somebody else. If they are expected to play a major role, it has to be done their way. Otherwise, they are quite happy to opt out and leave others to sort it out for themselves. Leo likes to be appreciated and when this is forthcoming they will become extremely generous of themselves and their resources. Flattery will get one a long way with Leo, as long as it seems genuine.
Leo makes an entrance. Heads turn when Leo walks into the room. They are dramatic and have an ability to play whatever role is necessary in any set of circumstances. Leo is creative and this skill can be utilised to develop something, seemingly out of nothing.
Leo will often have a thick head of hair. This is their mane (of the Lion) and a most important feature to them. Heaven help any hairdresser who ruins it.
Leo is very proud but sometimes their pride can be their downfall. Leo is the sign of children and for this reason Leo will often have a lot of involvement or connection, directly or indirectly, with young people.
Leo rules the heart, spine and back. People who have any of their personal planets or ascendant in Leo will have sensitivity or health problems associated with these areas of their body.
If the Sun is in Leo: Is meant to brighten up the world in some manner, which generally leads to some form of recognition, if only minute. The primary aim should be happiness, both of the self and others. Leo’s role is to entertain whether this be light-hearted situations or more serious. When people find something has a fun or pleasurable element they are willing to listen and learn. Developing this skill to pass on information sheds light into the lives of those who come into contact with Leo. Very resistant to being told what to do. Subtlety works wonders.
If the Moon is in Leo: Is not to be ignored. Likes to be the centre of attention but this may not always occur for the right reasons. Knows how to be the boss but can be rather oblivious to the effect this might be having for good or bad. Can be seen as audacity. So much so it can leave others speechless and at times not game to challenge, so the door to opportunity is open through which Leo Moon proceeds. Naturally entertaining. Set out to enjoy life and have some fun. Will often work in areas where there is contact with children or youth.
If Mercury is in Leo: creative thinking patterns. Will come forward and say what they think needs to be said. Tend to think certain things must be obvious to everybody. Willing to take a chance because it might just work.
If Venus is in Leo: not practical with money. Likes to buy the best. Will freely spend money on entertainment and pleasure. Romantic, charming, will fall in love easily but not so good when fun turns to routine. Needs to have an outlet where creativity can be expressed. Attracted to others who have Leo traits.
If Mars is in Leo: will act without hesitation if they believe it is right. There is a strong desire to be in control. Manner can be very dominating. Fiery temper. A degree of naivety. Seems brave but can be quite insecure underneath it all.
If the Ascendant is in Leo: You have no desire to fade into the background. You are there to be noticed and will do things that draw attention. Your manner of presentation has a dramatic air, even of the simplest things. You can be very entertaining and will like dressing for the occasion.
