Leo: Your Ultimate Guide To Understanding The Zodiac Sign
Leo's Mythological Beginnings
The Leo constellation is a reference to one of Heracles’ 12 labors, which was to fight the Nemean lion that was said to be invincible because weapons couldn’t kill it.
The constellation symbolizes bravery, one of the most prominent attributes given to those born under this sign.
Positive Traits
Leos have an infectious personality that will light up any room they enter because their bright personality glows like the sun, and their warm smile is contagious.
They are loyal friends and lovers who will give the shirt off their backs to anyone in need, along with honest and truthful advice.
Negative Traits
If a Leo lets their self-confidence turn into pride then they’ll become more concerned with themselves than helping those around them.
They may act over-domineering or arrogant at times and have a jealous streak, which can get in the way of friendships and relationships.
Fire Sign
Leo is one of three fire signs, and while their passionate nature can make them hot under the collar, they put their all into the things that mean the most to them.
Leos will fight for what matters to them, and an angry Leo is a force to be reckoned with. They’d rather burn those that hurt them than listen to any excuses.
Fifth House
Each astrological house is known for different aspects, and the fifth house, which Leo is born into, is all about pleasure.
The fifth house is full of creative folk who often have great ideas. A Leo is a perfect person to go to for help with all things visual.
