All about Leo
The fifth of the 12 Zodiac Signs, Leo’s are natural born leaders ruled by the proud and fierce Lion. With their head held high, Leo’s can walk into any room with a self confidence and magnetic personality that other’s envy.
Poised with dominant energy, Leo’s live in the spotlight and get energy from it. In social situations, they wear their hearts on their sleeves and let their feelings be known. At times, their magnetic personality can be extremely difficult to resist.
Leo energy is courageous, kind, generous, loyal, vulnerable, and magnetic. At times, an excess of Leo energy can cause you to upstage those around you. Moderated appropriately though, Leos can use their natural ability to be leaders and allow everybody to share in the spotlight and have their feelings heard.
Facts about Leo

Leo: The Lion
Symbolized by the almighty Lion, Leo’s are the king of the jungle, brave, and fearless as they stalk through the wild. The leader of the pack, Leo’s own the spotlight and wear their hearts on their sleeves.
Proud and fierce, the Lion inspires all of us to be protective of our passion and lie life to the fullest every day.
Just as a lion needs to rest, every Leo needs a cave to recuperate and find comfort during hard times. Be careful of hiding away though. In their core they know that they belong walking through the forest with their head held high.
Leo Element: Fire
Just like Aries and Sagittarius, Leo is ruled by the fire element. The second sign ruled by the fire element, Leo takes the flame from Aries and turns it into a roaring bonfire felt by all.
At times, others can be a little apprehensive of the heat you bring but your magnetic personality means people are drawn to your energy. Just like a bonfire sits at the center of the campfire, Leos love to be in the spotlight and shine.
Leo Ruling Planet: The Sun
The center of our Solar System, Leo is ruled by the Sun. As a leader, Leo likes to stand out in a blaze of glory much like the Sun does every morning. Like the Sun, Leo likes to bring the heat to the party and drama can follow them wherever they go.
Typically the Sun represents our ego and life force energy inherent in the air around us. In ancient mythology, Apollo was the Sun God. He would drive his chariot and flaming horses around the Earth during the day setting the sky ablaze with bright light. In much the same way, Leo’s will enter any room with their heart on their sleeve and bring the energy to the party.
