Leo, the Lion, is the 5th sign of the Western zodiac. Souls who incarnate from July 22nd to August 23rd are born under the sign or constellation of Leo.
Leo is a Fire sign and in the language of astrology the Fire element or quadruplicity traits include: energetic, creative, inspirational, motivational, aspiring, enthusiastic, and lively. However, Leos can be bold, domineering, rebellious, spontaneous, and hot-tempered. Fire signs include: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Leo’s astrological statement is “I Shine” and/or “I Will!” Both statements are befitting of this sign. Leos are strong willed individuals and they love to shine.
Leo is a Fixed sign meaning Leos are rigid and do not like change. They can be very stubborn just like their fixed sign brethren Taurus, a sign Leos have great difficulty in getting along with, especially in relationships. Other Fixed signs besides Leo and Taurus include Scorpio and Aquarius.
Leo corresponds to the astrological Fifth House – the House of Creativity, Children, Love and Romance, and Fun.
“All the other houses up to this point dealt with staying alive. This is the first house that says, “Let’s enjoy ourselves”. This house shows romantic interests, but not marriage. That’s the seventh house’s job. Anybody who has ever been married can tell you that marriage and romance are entirely different things.” Bob Marks, astrologer
Leo is a Masculine (yang, positive) sign meaning Leos are assertive, bold, expressive, and extrovert. Other masculine signs include: Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
The pure Leo has a commanding personality and stands out from the crowd. This sign is a leader always seeking a position of command or authority. Leos are extroverts, outgoing, social and not afraid to bully. They find it very difficult and challenging to relinquish the dominant position.
