“The Courageous Lion/ Lioness”
During the middle of summer, from July 23rd to August 22nd, the sun is fully in its power in its own sign, the constellation of Leo. Just past the big dipper, Regulus the bright star of royalty, will help you easily locate Leo lighting up the nights sky. The Lion archetype throughout Greek mythology depicts the “taming of the beast” as a victorious feat where strength is given in exchange for eternal honor. This cosmic sun lion LOVES to bring us some comedic relief in the summer heat. Leos encourage and uplift the spirits of those around them and are the entertainers of the zodiac.
“There’s laughing in her eyes, dancing in her feet, She’s a neon-light diamond and she can live on the street.”
You will notice a Leo because of their magnetic smile, almond shaped eyes, corncob teeth, and a mane that ranges from wild and unkempt to smooth and soft. Whether they are a lazy Leo or a polished Leo, their look will be pre-meditated and reflective of their creative gifts of which they have many. Leos adore bright colored jewels, gold, and indulging in the finer things. They take pride in their surroundings, so they create radiant homes and friendship circles.
“Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair. She takes her fan and throws it, in the lion's den.”
Jerry Garcia was born on August 1st with his Leo sun in the 10th house which indicates he was destined to be a strong presence that could captivate a large audience. The term rock star envelopes a lot of the qualities that Leo represents so it’s no wonder you will often see them lighting up the stage and creating a dramatic scene everywhere they go.
“If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine, And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung, Would you hear my voice come through the music? Would you hold it near as it were your own?”
Leo is the 2nd fire sign of the zodiac, building upon the spark for initiation and birthing of ideas from Aries, the Leo is here to be a vital presence in the lives of many. The Leo has an innate sense of childlike joy and wonder that can be a magnificent sight to see. Leo rules over the heart and spine which gives them the ability to love deeply with lighting stamina! The archetypes associated with Leo are the strength and sun tarot cards, the Lion/ Lioness, and the King/ Queen (royalty). Leos are the gatekeepers of passionate creative vitality and divine power. Leos are here to learn the lessons of ego in order to best serve their audience. They yearn to bring messages of good news but are known to be very blunt and honest with their opinions.
Leo is ruled by the sun. The sun is without a doubt the most obvious and vital force our planet receives. The sun radiates essential vitamins and vitality into all life and never asks for anything in return but to shine! Leos and Lions are a little bit more demanding however but will without a doubt shower you with affections and amplify your confidence. The Lion archetype is the king of the Jungle, ready to seize any opportunity and will never follow the pack, but rather take risks to satiate their appetite! With the leadership lion, you will never be confused with where you stand in their life, they are honest and loyal to a fault. Because they can be very transparent and even childlike in their emotions, they often require validation in equal forms. The Leo usually thrives in the careers of music, comedy, writing, drama and politics. They are built to be seen and will throw themselves heart first into their work. Leos can certainly make an impression, and have a wild and “krazy kat” side when they get excited, which is a force to be reckoned with.
“Like a crazy-quilt stargown, through a dream night wind, Krazy Kat peeking through a lace bandana, like a one-eyed Cheshire, like a diamond-eye Jack, A leaf of all colors plays
a golden string fiddle to a double-e waterfall over my back.”
Leo rules the 5th house in the natal chart which is associated with joy, children, artistic endeavors, and the father. It is here where we can truly immerse ourselves in what lights us up. The 5th house brings us pleasure, romance, playtime and a healthy jolt of ego! Leo loves to dwell in their sacred cave and create works of art. They should be cautious not to be overly boastful, egocentric, or deny their inner child. The inner child energy of the 5th house is very strong and could represent the types of children we create in this lifetime or the childish ways we love to act upon. It is through the 5th house that we gain confidence of which Leo has plenty to spare!
“Hey hey, hey, come right away, Come and join the party every day. Well everybody’s dancin’ in a ring around the sun, Nobody’s finished, we ain’t even begun. So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat. Try on your wings and find our where its at. Hey hey, hey, come right away, Come and join the party every day.”
Leos are one of the most full-on signs when it comes to romance, their passion can be felt very intensely. They attract many suitors due to their confident and open nature, however they can be quite demanding in their needs which usually weeds out those who are “not worthy.” Once the Leo commits in love, they will be some of the most loyal lovers one can experience. They will naturally attract attention and require a balance such as their polar opposite sign like Aquarius to assist them to shift their focus on the bigger picture. Leos do very well with another fire sign to feed their flames like an Aries or Sagittarius but those relationships can burn out very quickly if not rooted in a common love language. The leadership Leo is encouraged to take a step back from their bossy ways in relationships and tune into their receptive nature. In friendships, they pair well with most signs and cultivate many strong intimate bonds with friends.
The Leo energy often expresses itself in two ways; one being the creative kitten, and the other being the leader of the pack. The leaders have a lot of lessons to learn around their personal power and will need to use it humbly and wisely. The creatives will take mega risks and create world of art never before seen and need to learn to accept criticism. Leos are always the boss, no matter what and they love to be in high positions or start their own thing. They have a strong sense of morality and have a calling to be in teacher mode when in conversations with colleagues. As long as they can shine and control their income, they will be purring and shinning their affection on all whom come into contact with them
Leos sparkle and shine wherever they go, but they do have that dreaded dark side. When they do not receive the recognition or the high achievements they believe are theirs for the keeping, they could end up throwing a roaring tantrum. As friends, Leos are incredibly loyal and generous as long as you aren’t poking at their flaws then you may experience their claw lashing out to protect their bruised ego as they go hide and sulk in their caves. Since the Leo sun is one of the most vital signs it is also one of the most resilient, they can pull away when threatened and bounce back with ease. Leos are capable of cultivating an inner sun that burns away the “bad vibes.” God bless the person who hurts a Leos pride, they will need it because there will be a reckoning! Leos are so generous and loving, that they often become shell-shocked to find out how cold other people can be. It is best to surround themselves with loving and more outgoing types so they don’t dominate the energy; it can be blinding.
Leos are the Kings and Queens of the Zodiac, so if you resent that sort of thing, you’ll just have to step aside. These lions are loud, proud and love to teach, preach, and create! Leo learns that true power comes with great responsibility to champion a cause or an outcome that is beneficial for all. The highest manifestation of Leo will be shinning their bright lights onto the collective to empower and awaken those around them to their own divinity. So go on Leo, and shine like a ‘neon diamond’!
“Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold, In hopes he will return, but he cannot be bought or sold, We’re all just the same growing children, Every moment is perfect, every sound is a jewel, Every man is a prophet at the mercy of a fool.”
