The Sun in Leo

The Sun represents your ego, your basic sense of yourself. The sign it occupies in the Zodiac at any given time will focus you and your interests on certain "generic matters" represented by the sign itself.

You are also more likely to experience and express the personal characteristics represented by the sign involved than at other times of the year.

When the Sun is in Leo, Life asks you to give yourself some love. It supports efforts to boost your self-image and self esteem. If you're ready to just enjoy yourself a while, it's ready to help you find the way.

This energy encourages you to consider your reason for being ... and act on what you find with drama and confidence. It prompts you to promote yourself, to polish your leadership skills and put your talents onstage ... on display ... where everyone can better appreciate you -- and what you can do.

Pros & cons

The main strength of the Sun in Leo: It encourages you to feel important, to find ways that help you be more impressive and significant. It focuses interest on your creative talents ... the skills that put you in the spotlight for doing both the things you love and the things you do exceptionally well -- possibly things only you can do.

With the Sun in Leo, it's time to show off a little, dust off and use your personal charisma ... and along with your bid for applause and attention, don't forget to have some fun.

The main drawback of the Sun in Leo: You can go off the rails due to ego problems and issues of pride. This energy has a very child-like exuberance. It loves to enjoy itself. It loves acclaim and praise. It gobbles the fuel of celebrity whenever it can.

But like a child, it doesn't have a good sense of reasonable limits. It can be petulant and prone to tantrums. It's self-centeredness is hard to handle when it's time to either dim the lights ... or let someone else perform for a while.
