LEO

July 23 - August 23

The sign of Leo

Male sign ruled by the Sun, its element is fire, well representing the fullness of the summer season, vitality in its maximum splendor, the harvest of ripe fruit, satisfaction, the pride of full maturity and success. The archetype of him is the Sovereign, a symbol of the moment in which, within the hero's journey, he takes full responsibility for his own life.
The pride connotes it in an unmistakable way: the Leo ego is strong and tends to excel in all circumstances and to always place it at the center of attention. Sign of power, will, moral rigor and determination combined with kindness: from the top of his kingship, in fact, Leo can afford to be generous, or even magnanimous. But he will never waste any resources, especially his life: everything must be devoted to the highest possible yield. In this sense, Leo is always looking for their own and others' potential secret to engage them in a productive way. Leo is also extremely courageous, but never takes risks only for the thrill that follows: in his generosity, he is simply always ready to sacrifice himself, but never for his "kingdom" for which he always seeks harmony. , effectively managing conflicts.
The natives of the sign instill a sense of confidence and often excel and do not like to win too easily as they prefer to conquer. They are aware of their own worth and love to be appreciated, which makes them highly susceptible to flattery. The great pride of Leo, his optimistic, confident, upright and honest side can, at times, lead him to a certain naivety at times. After all, the life of this sign is linked to majesty and royalty and deals with the smallness of the world with difficulty!
On the other hand strength can become prevarication and authoritarianism, satisfaction and merit risk becoming pride and ostentation, heat can easily turn into anger, the joy of giving can become prodigality, security can turn into exhibitionism, pride and authoritarianism: excesses are the biggest risk for this sign!
