Leo, the Lion


July 23 - August 22


The lion symbolizes Leo, and people born under this sign are often as proud as the king of the jungle himself. Leo is a very ambitious and strong-willed sign, and Leos like nothing better than being the center of attention.

If you are a Leo, you are most likely generous and willing to give of your time and money, especially if it makes you look good in the eyes of others. However, as selfless as you can be at your best, you also tend to feel that you must have the spotlight. When such times arise, you are overconfident, frank and outspoken, which can become a bit wearing on your friends.

Money is important to you, but only in that it helps you to achieve your goals. With this in mind, you will do almost anything to get what you want, and you are more interested in the big picture than the niggling details in any situation. Once you believe in a project, you are loyal to it until the very end. Because of this tendency, you like to be placed in positions of authority that have a lot of delegation power and leadership duties; this helps you to inspire people with your causes. If this desire to lead is not fulfilled, you might just turn into a lazy lion.

As in the animal kingdom, female Leos tend to be a bit more dominant. Both sexes can be practical, philosophical, and spiritual, which helps them to get their way of thinking across. Leos are strongly attracted to the opposite sex, too.

Relating back to your animal instincts, you are most likely to be a lover of nature. Like the lion, you are seen as noble and very proud; you cannot tolerate teasing. You always fight fairly, though at times you may lack tact and diplomacy. The only time you might gripe is when you're ill or stressed, which is rare. Overall, this is a most agreeable sign to be born under because of the generous basis that it lends to you.
