24th July - 23rd August
When the sun enters the sign of Leo, the heat of the summer is on. Nature is beginning to bear its sweet fruit and the long, hot days are an invitation to lay back and play. Leo likes the good life, the parties, the fun in the sun, good food and wine, expensive cars and accessoires, in short a luxurious lifestyle of glitter, fame and fortune. They love to pamper themselves and often have a radiant glow about them. Leo is the sign of creativity and many Leos are indeed artists and actors who enjoy the limelight of centre stage. Those that are not artists themselves still like to be at the centre of attention. Monetary means permitting they are often found as patrons of the arts. Leo is very generous and likes to demonstrate their affection by lavishing expensive gifts on those they love. They are proud of their possessions, and their concept of possession includes their partner and children, which they also want to show off. The creative fire burns within the Leo soul and yearns for recognition. Their creativity is their precious gift, their power to contribute to creation at large, their means of becoming immortalized. Each of their creative projects is like a child to them. Leo can be stubborn, authoritarian and full of self importance even if his claim to fame is a faint glimmer of some past glory that has long been surpassed. Leo sometimes fears his creative power might dry up. He needs to learn how to nurture his creative fire within as a constant source of inspiration. Some Leo's are afraid of expressing their creativity and become frustrated and bitter.
