Leo is generous, passionate, enthusiastic, and cheerful. Those born in the sign of the lion like to be the center of attention. They are proud and make a loyal friend.
Leo likes to have fun. Leos have a flair for drama, but can get lost in the melodrama. They can stand with pride, or have an excessively prideful ego. Surprisingly, though, Leos are sensitive and their feelings can be easily hurt.
As the tribal leader, father, or coach, Leos make sure that those in their charge have their needs met. They make wonderful organizers and work with passion.
Leo's spiritual task is to infuse people with the enthusiasm that radiates from the great central Sun. The color and metal gold are associated with the bright Leo sunshine.
Leo rules games, gambling, romantic affairs, and theaters. In the body, Leo rules the heart, chest, and spine. Watch out for sunstroke, and heartburn!
