Leo is a Fire Sign

The Fire Signs of the Zodiac are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. There is one Fire Sign for each of the Qualities -- Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. Aries is Cardinal Fire. Leo is Fixed Fire, and Sagittarius is Mutable Fire. Together, these three elements form the components in the pattern of the Grand Fire Trine.

Fire element is the quality associated with leadership issues, ambitions based on personal charisma, a fondness for seizing the initiative when choosing to act, and a reputation for showing enthusiasm and even zealotry in their character. Fire signs are the spark of heat and initiative from which all life ... and all things that are part of life ... begin.

Leo: the 5th Sign of the Zodiac

Signs in the Fire element are considered masculine, which, in metaphysical terms means they are dynamic, outgoing, extroverted, and active. Like Air signs ... Fire signs make things happen. Fire signs are known for doing things, taking action ... often without thinking, reflecting, or even considering the consequences -- on themselves or anyone else.

Fire signs see life as an adventure, a marvelous banquet of experience they want to savor with gusto They participate in life even more than they react to it.

Are You a Leo?
(Related Open Article)

Leo: is the Charismatic Leader ... the inspiring leader and manager who provides the inspiration, direction, and passion to motivate loyal followers. we're dealing with someone who values -- and wants to be valued FOR -- personal charisma, creative leadership skills, his willingness to "take command," (just try and take command away from him!!), his inspirational style, and his colorful commitment to being admired!

Aries, with his pushiness, his bossiness, and his obstreperous habits may be hard to ignore. Leo, though, is impossible to ignore. Heads turn when he walks in the room ... an honor befitting Zodiac royalty. (And don't you forget it!)

Leo is a Fixed Sign

The Fixed Signs of the Zodiac are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. There is one Fixed Sign for each of the Elements -- Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Leo is Fixed Fire. Scorpio is Fixed Water. Aquarius is Fixed Air and Taurus is Fixed Earth. There are two masculine Fixed signs and two feminine Fixed signs.

These form two pairs of oppositions in the Zodiac (Taurus and Scorpio oppose one another; Leo and Aquarius oppose one another.) ... and each element in these oppositions squares the elements of the other. These four signs together form the pattern of the Fixed Grand Cross in which each element has an agenda, a perspective on life and a set of values that antagonizes the other three.

Fixed signs are replete with inner reserves, formidable in their determination to "stay the course" they have set for themselves, and resolute in their ability to undergo considerable hardship (and even physical damage) rather than "give in" to an adversary or an adversarial situation. Fixed signs, when faced with conflict or distress, become the "immoveable object" of song and legend.

Fixed signs are masters of stability, perseverance, and organization. They are motivated by principles and can be every bit as entangled in the concept of "a cause" as the Cardinal signs. But they definitely want a more measured and serene pace to the life they lead. They aren't a bit fond of high-pressure situations or people who push too hard. They prefer other tactics to get what they want that can be just as effective ... and just as infuriating.

Leo is Fixed Fire. As a fixed sign, Leo has a special fondness for persistence, resolve, the refusal to take "no" for an answer when pursuing the plans he thinks will gain him his goals. In a world, and especially a culture, where "personality rules" ... often despite serious evidence of shallow character, meager achievements, and even deep moral flaws ... Leo's formula for success can gain him ground he really doesn't deserve -- based solely on his popularity.

This isn't to say Leo can't be marvelous as a leader. He certainly can. But it's easy for him to be loved and considered wonderful ... even when he isn't. And to overcome the ease with which he commands popular appeal just by "showing up" ... and offer substance in exchange for glory ... takes a fairly mature spirit. Fortunately, there are plenty of Leos with that going for them, too!
