I Will

LEO, the Lion
July 23 - August 22

Archetypes and Roles

The Performer, the King or Queen, the Child, the Creative Artist, the Lover, the Actor or Actress

Noble, warm, and generous, you prefer to bask in the spotlight of admiration and respect. There is an elegance and authority about you, suggested by your celestial symbol, the royal Lion.

Spirituality

"I Will" is your birth sign's signature. The "King of Beasts" is honored with awe and respect by the Hindus, Babylonians, and many African faiths.  The Sphinx, a half-human, half-lion figure, represented immortality and wisdom. Buddha is said to have had a lion companion with magickal powers. Exhibiting the legendary love and loyalty which Leo is known for, the great cat guarded Buddha's body faithfully after he departed from the Earth.


Your loyalty is beyond question. You are devoted to yourself.

All Leos possess a kingdom and you are unquestioningly ruler of this kingdom. You are the monarch of all you survey.

At a party, it isn't long before you assume control of the evening. Witty, vivacious, a fluent talker, you are a born entertainer who can lend spice to any occasion. People gravitate to you as steel filings to a magnet.

You have a great flair for drama and an instinct for getting attention.  You despise the humdrum, the ordinary, the dull.  When real life does not supply all the excitement you need, you try to create your own. You are born to do things in a really big way.

Born under the most royal sign of the zodiac, there is absolutely nothing Leo people can think of that's too good for them. You want to enjoy the good life, and never mind what it costs.

Even when the credit cards are to their limit, Leo will still make reservations at the best restaurant in town. Leos are the most lavish spenders in the zodiac, Librans run a close second.

Astrologers call Leos eternal children, for you take pleasure from the moment and are uninhibited in giving affection.

Your ego demands not respect but adoration, not compliments but flattery, and when you receive praise you never stop  to wonder if it is insincere. Pride is your Achilles heel.

In business you are the one in command. Leos simply assume that they were born to a high position. All you ask is to be in the limelight.

Routine quickly leads to boredom, and makes you desperately unhappy. You have an unshakable belief in your luck and quickly bounce back from despondency.

True, you can be bombastic and overbearing at times. True, you love to give advice and tell people how to run their lives. Like your symbol, the lion, you can be quite indolent and lazy; you like to sit back and bask in your own glory. But your great warmth and sunny disposition is very hard to resist. The world would be much less fun without Leos.
