Leo: July 23 – August 22

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, and their birthdays fall right in the middle of the year. Although, they are anything but the middle child, and love being in the spotlight.

Leo is a fire sign, which means that they are enthusiastic, love to express themselves and enjoy being  the center of attention.

However, these lions aren’t only focused on hogging the spotlight, they are also determined to succeed. This is a person who has a fire burning inside them which drives them to achieve their goals, as well as anything else they set their minds to.

As a lion, Leo is used to being the leader of the pack, and have a natural instinct to be very strong personalities which can be a good or a bad thing.

On one hand they easily provide for others, but they can also be very stubborn and dominant. In certain situations Leos may think they are always right, when that just isn’t the case.

However, Leo is generally fairly intuitive, and intelligent, so they make well suited leaders. Just because a Leo is a strong leader, does not mean that they aren’t playful. In fact, Leos, like the lions they are, can get side tracked with responsibilities because of their playful nature.

This is a lucky sign in life and love. Generally people flock to a Leo’s magnetic and warm personality. It also seems as though Leo is just in the right place at the right time.

As much as lions love the games of chance, they don’t always win and this can be devastating. Leo takes big chances and either claims big rewards, or reaps the havoc of bad decisions.

Leos are generally very competitive, so they will move mountains to succeed in any of their tasks. Winning is power, and Leo loves being at the head of everything, and losing can turn a Leo into a bitter person indeed.

When Leo is on the losing end, they can sometimes be a “sore loser” in the worst sense of the word. This is a direct reflection of the large ego that a Leo is constantly carrying around.

In love, a Leo is the protector and the provider. One remembers the story of the mouse and the lion, when thinking of a Leo’s softer side. Although this dominant lion may seem to be tough, at the heart they are just another sensitive cub.

This is also a sign that was made to lead a family, and take care of the ones that they love, but Leos have to watch out over their love of pleasure.

There have been many relationships that have come to the breaking point because Leo doesn’t like to sit at home. They enjoy seeking the next big thrill.

However, these lions are loyal, so when their trust is gained, it can be harder for them to stray. All in all this loving Leo is the leader of all parts of their life, and those around them are all the better for it.
