The Lion, the benevolent ruler.....ruled by The SUN father and giver of life
July 23 - Aug. 22
Beasty, growly Leo is warm, cuddly and playful, yet fiercely protective of everyone and everything in his domain. He has a never-ending need to shine like the Sun, and so takes plenty of time to make himself look good, inside and out.....not to feed his vanity, but to be the best he can be for those who depend on him.
The pride Leo takes in himself is the gift he gives to the world. He strives to be a model of self-esteem, strength and confidence, as every king should be. He loves children, playing, acting, games, animals, nature and all the world...and in doing so he loves himself. The Leo sometimes allows his shimmering boldness to go to his head, and then - he can become the most glorious of entertainers!
Leo needs to share the tremendous sunlight in his soul. He thrives on praise, and suffers without it. He is a great manager, organizer and leader. People love to follow Leo because he is kind and generous. He understands teamwork and can work well under the command of another, but will maintain a constant ambition to be on top
Leo is a fierce, demonstrative, loving person who thrives on constant attention and kindness, yet needs the independence of spirit that recharges him and allows him to stay strong within himself. He strives to be a creative force in the world - through raising children, artistic performance, crafting and designing or leading others.

MOON in LEO (also Moon in fifth house)
Moon in Leo can be either loud and dramatic or silly and childlike when he's showing emotion. He may growl, act the fool, or even hide. Whatever his reaction, he will make sure the ultimate outcome is positive. He has a big heart, and always wants to please. Leo Moon is very sensitive to criticism. He showers others with praise and needs the same in return. He values his independence and freely shares his ability to organize and lead. He enjoys children, play and creativity.
LEO RISING (also Sun rising)
Leo Rising sees the world as a warm, happy place where everyone is cared for and has the freedom to be creative. More than willing to share his own abilities, he readily takes friends and family under his wing. Leo Rising has a sunny face and disposition. He may stand out in a crowd - with either very attractive clothes or a noticeable head of hair. It is important to him to look good. He can be dramatic, magnanimous, silly or bossy - but he is always kind.
