Leo! About Your Sign...
type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal
characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality,
they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious,
courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, self-confident there
is no such a word as doubt in their vocabularies, and they are self-controlled.
Born leaders, either in support of, or in revolt against, the status quo.
They are at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism
and innate courtesy of mind bringing out the best of loyalty from subordinates.
They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and using all their energies,
creativeness and resolution to get it, as well as being certain that they will get
whatever they are after. Their followers know where they are with Leonians. Leonians
think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their
schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers, their practical hardheadedness
and ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend
on them. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity.
On the whole
they are powers for good, for they are strongly idealistic, humane, and beneficent.
They have powerful intelligence and are of a broad philosophical, sometimes religious,
turn of mind. Those who are devout may become very obstinate in upholding traditional
beliefs and will cling tenaciously, but with complete sincerity, to practices and
doctrines which liberal thinkers regard as absurdly out-of-date. These will be found
as the 'lions' of industries, and in the forefront of the cutting edge of technologies.
can be as large in scale as their virtues, and an excessively negative Leonian can
be one of the most unpleasant human beings imaginable, displaying extreme arrogance,
autocratic pride, haughtiness, and excessive hastiness of temper. If jealously suspicious
of rivals, they will not hesitate to use cunning, lies and trickery to discredit
them. Self-centeredness, greed for flattery, boastfulness, and bombast, pomposity,
snobbish superiority, and overbearing, and intolerant disdain of underlings; to
whom they will nevertheless delegate the carrying out of minor details in their
grandiose schemes, and from whom they are not above borrowing immoderately if an
occasion necessitates it. Any of these can be characteristic of Leo. Add to them
a passion for luxury, a lust for power, unlimited sexual lust, and emotional indulgence,
and a character emerges that no one would want to know either in public life or
private. But their pride may go before a fall, as uncontrolled impetuosity is likely
to bring them low. Fortunately it is rare that a Leo is so undisciplined as to give
way thoroughly to this list of vices, and their tendencies to them are usually balanced
by an innate wisdom. Those who are afflicted with them also have the intelligence
it takes to consciously and actively overcome them.
life they do well at any vocation at which there is room at the top. As politicians
they are content with nothing less than a powerful position in government. In business
they may be the chairman of their company's board, or at least directors or managers.
They are excellent organizers and overseers, often laying the groundwork for new
projects. If from the artisan ranks of society they will aspire to become the boss,
partly because they are ambitious by nature, partly because they dislike manual
labor, preferring to take charge of others doing it. If artistic, Leos can become
stars of stage or screen (their bent is serious rather than light drama), maestros
as musicians where they will gravitate toward the grand instruments or activities,
such as the organ or conducting of orchestras and as painters; anything grand in
conception and scale appeals to them. Leo women make exceptionally good welfare
In his or
her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. Outgoing,
spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness,
Leos are more disillusioned than the average if let down by those they trust. They
are not good judges of character and are inclined to favoritism and an exaggerated
faith in their followers which too often ends in disappointment. They have a strong
sex drive and are so attracted to the opposite sex that they find it hard to be
constant; they can be so intensely sexual as to become dissolute. They may have
numerous love affairs for their love of pleasure and beauty is liable to drive them
from one attractive partner to another. They are very much inclined to deceive.
Their marriages may fail for the same reason, yet they are sincere and generous
to their lovers while love lasts, and will remain attached to their homes so long
as it is run for their benefit. They demand service but are incapable of giving
