The Sun takes one year to complete the cycle of the zodiac.

sun glyph  The sun being an orb, or circle, is one of the oldest symbols known that represents life in many cultures. While the sun is not a true planet it is considered so in astrology forecasts. The sun represents your ego and your conscious will as well as your physical life energies.

It is your every day consciousness (awareness) through which other levels of consciousness can interact. The position of the sun in your natal chart depicts the way you radiate energies in relation to the events in your life. Its effect is mainly paternal and that is traditionally masculine. The Sun is the heart of the horoscope and where it is found then it is there that you will want to shine.

FIXED--Fifth sign of the Zodiac--FIRE SIGN
July 23 to August 22

  Leo has a great deal of self confidence but they also have a great fear of being ridiculed and made to feel disgraced. While Leo is very affectionate there is a tendency to have things their way and may rapidly lose interest if they are challenged too often for the leading role. They will have to learn to discipline themselves against their overall enthusiasm for living life to the fullest, which is to say, dangerously on the edge. The creative urge in Leos should never be stifled as to do so a good deal of potential will be wasted.

  Leos are found as painters, actors, or sculptors; but not all Leos are in the public arts, no, rather they can be found in the throes of creation doing their projects on the kitchen table. They have an infectious vitality that lights up their lives like an inner sun and illuminates not only their lives, but the lives of those around them. Lack of fulfillment in life, professionally or personally, can destroy these bright and shinning people and cloud their personalities.Leos need control in their lives to be really satisfied so organization is absolutely essential to their peace of mind.

  A leo should cultivate a flexible mind as they do not always 'know best'.

Only when this trait is cultivated can the characteristic Leonine warmth, generosity, and desire to really understand others be fully indulged.

  The lions love and adore children as they bring out the inner child. Leos are surprisingly sensitive and easily hurt, but they do have a tendency to dominate and this should never be underestimated. It is always meant well as they only want to bring out the best in the people they care about, or work with. They also tend toward impatience and they should make curbing these traits a lifelong objective. Born leaders, they can take command of a situation in any emergency and see it through to its completion. The enthusiams they acquired in childhood will generally last a lifetime and may even dictate the career one would choose.

 They can be too status conscious, causing themselves much anguish when, or if, they cannot keep up with others in their immediate circle. They can also be quite overbearing and vain when they feel they are being challenged. On the other hand, the lions make great lovers and parents, giving more to a relationship than most of the other signs. They are good honorable persons and good providers.

Loving Leo

Who praises all his kindred do;
Expects his friends to praise them too-
And cannot see their senseless view?
Ah, Leo!

Your color is the GOLDEN YELLOW of the Sun.

Your metal the precious GOLD from the earth.
