The Leo Ego ... handle with care
The afflicted Sun in Leo feels disrespected and ignored. This sign needs a lot of pampering and praise to feed its formidable ego. When that doesn't happen often enough, it feels stressed, annoyed and upset -- and responds as you might expect. For a Leo ego, there is nothing worse than being overlooked and humiliated, discounted and invisible.
These are a issues everyone faces during the time each year when the Sun travels through Leo. They are a constant concern if you were born with the Sun in Leo ... if, when someone asks, "What's your sign?" -- the answer is "Leo." Leo souls arrive in this world between July 22 and August 22.
So here are things to watch out for ... special behavior problems and unpleasant situations that arise for a stressed Sun in Leo. You may see them in yourself when the Sun is in Leo. You may see them quite a bit when Leo is your Sun sign.

Leo's color is yellow.
- Becoming so self-centered you forget other people have rights and feelings, too.
- Failing to consider any point of view, any convenience, any advantages but your own.
Leo's ruler is The Sun.
- Getting involved in matters where you cut off your nose to spite your face.
- Refusing to back down ... and claiming that your position is "a matter of principle" when it's really a matter of vanity
- Misusing your personal power in positions of leadership and responsibility you hold
- Becoming conceited, self-absorbed, self-important, pompous, and overbearing
- Behaving like the world is your personal kingdom ... and you are the visiting royalty
- Expecting people to cater to you and your wishes ... because you're so darn special
- Having "fun" ... or promoting yourself ... at someone else's expense
