Leo: the 5th Sign of the Zodiac
Time for self-promotion

by Serenity Chappell

Leo -- time for play & romance

Leo is the fifth sign of the Zodiac. It follows Cancer in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Astrology Sign Leo covers the time from July 22nd until August 23rd.

It is a time of playfulness, speculation, romance, pursuing leisure activities ... and "doing things you love" -- preferably with people you love, too!!

Charisma & children

In Astrology, Leo is associated with leadership, self-confidence, developing and showing off your special talents, and putting yourself onstage.

In mundane matters, Leo is connected with children, brain-children, hobbies, creative and artistic pursuits, gambling, and activities that call attention specifically to you.

Leo is the Fixed Fire Sign

The Zodiacal symbol for Leo is the Lion. Leo is the Fixed Fire sign. Fire signs in Astrology are active, courageous, and self-involved. Fixed signs in Astrology are steady and determined.

They deal with life's problems by staying the course, digging in and holding their position ... and basically "outlasting the competition." Leo energy is devoted to the playful "inner child" in all of us who loves attention, loves to take risks, loves to have fun and who wants to be loved for himself alone!!



Leo is a Fixed Sign

The other Fixed Signs are Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Leo.

The other Fire signs are Aries and Sagittarius. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Leo.

Traditionally Leo is compatible with Aries and Sagittarius, other Leos, Gemini, and Libra. Gemini and Libra bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Leo.

On the other hand, a match between Leo and Taurus or Leo and Scorpio carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Leo and Aquarius will require well-defined "territories" for each ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values.

As you can see, Leo / Aquarius relationships can be a kind of mixed blessing.

Physically, Leo rules the heart. The ruling planet of Leo is the Sun. Leo is associated with the color gold. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Leo is the ruby.
