What the Sun in Leo brings to life

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" ruled by that sign. You are also likely to experience more of the interests of that sign and show off its personality traits along with your own.

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 pride. This energy has a delightful 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. Its self-centeredness is hard to handle when it's time to either dim the lights ... or let someone else perform a while.

Leo Sun Sparkles -- Tiny Thoughts and Trifles -- About the Leo Sun ---> 1 -- It's not conceited if it's true ... -- Traditional Astrology -- and some unsympathetic writers -- describe Leos as conceited. It's true Leos are intensely self-aware people, and honest enough to let it show. Leos figure if you're going to try to conceal something, it should be a serious failing, a notable weakness ... something you might legitimately be ashamed of.

Making the Most of the Sun in Leo ---> The Gifts of the Sun in Leo -- The energy of the Sun in Leo is proud, dramatic and flamboyant.

The Sun -- Ruler of Leo -- Symbol of Your Essential Self ---> The Sun, without which life on Earth could not exist as we know it, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's basic personality, the underlying canvas upon which all the other colors and elements of his character are co-mingled and combined. The Sun and its meaning are the centerpiece in the structure of Astrology.

The Virtues and the Downside of the Sun in Leo ---> Leo's symbol is the lion. -- What the Sun in Leo brings to life -- The Sun represents your ego, your basic sense of yourself.

When the Sun is in Leo ---> The symbol for Leo is the Lion. -- Leo energy -- When the Sun is in Leo, prepare for a month of true joy. People turn to activities and interests they really love.

It supports impressive appearances, romantic endeavors, leisure activities, speculation, creative projects, relationships with children and lovers, and anything that gets you notice and applause.

The Fire Signs -- Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ---> Fire Signs get things done -- The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius represent energy that is directly involved with action, leadership, personal charisma, and self-expression. These signs are self-confident, dramatic, self-promoting, exuberant, vivacious, and captivating. They get things done, motivate themselves and others, provide direction and strategy, and sometimes kick up a ruckus.

Things to Watch Out for with The Sun in Leo -- Avoiding the Problems and Pitfalls of This Sign's Energy ---> 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.
