Sun in Leo

  Leo is another Fire sign, bringing enthusiasm, spontaneity and energy. It is also a Fixed sign emphasizing the senses, desires, and intense reactions.  Leo's symbol is the lion, the King of Beasts, and this gives a good indication of those born at this time. The key phase for Leos is 'I will'.  Those born when the Sun is in Leo are generally extroverts. They will be self-assertive and self-controlling. While usually generous and warm-hearted they also know how to use power and to control others. They are high achievers and their commanding personalities make them good leaders unless they allow themselves to become overbearing and dominating. Leos are good organizers and, being outgoing, make good spokespeople, speakers and actors. They are usually highly principled and forthright but tend to acquire very fixed opinions, sometimes despite evidence to the contrary. In relationships, Leos are wholehearted, sincere, very sensual and pleasure loving. On the negative side they can be bossy and boastful.
   At this time those born with the Sun in Leo should be careful to exercise their self-restraint, as the Sun's energy will emphasize any failings. They should also be aware of their tendency to dominate any group of people, whether deliberately or not, and be prepared to step back and let others have their say. Non-Leos can utilize the energy at this time to become more self-assertive and to look towards claiming what is due them. Magically this is a good time for learning new skills or improving talents.
