Characteristics of the Lion
The Leo Zodiac Sign in Astrology
Leo, the Lion, is the fifth sign of the Zodiac in the horoscope. The Leo Zodiac sign belongs to the element fire and the fixed quality. That makes it proud, more than occasionally having reason for it. Pride is essential to the well-being of Leo. So is the respect of others, if not admiration. Leo in the horoscope is the character of the cavalier, who knows to make a lasting impression.
The horoscope ruler of the Leo Zodiac sign is the sun, of course. No other celestial body would do. The biggest and the shiniest, around which all the planets revolve. Like Leo, the sun is kind of a passive principle in the horoscope. A potential more than an active force, ignited only by the interference of other parts of the horoscope. The Leo Zodiac sign sits on a throne, not very eager to leave it, but can have a good influence from there. It's the archetype of the king.
The Leo horoscope sign has tremendous integrity, like the other horoscope fire signs Aries and Sagittarius, but is unlike them not that prone to make active use of it. To the Leo Zodiac sign, things are fine as they are, as long as that includes the respect of others. When challenged or insulted, Leo can indeed spring into action.
As a leader, the Leo Zodiac sign is aware of the importance of symbols, and makes sure to become one in order to gain and keep authority. It's a life guided by the simple fact that what seems important usually is, and the illusion of power is a strong power, too.
Those with Leo as their Zodiac sign in the horoscope are born with the sun in it, between July 23 and August 22. For more about the Leo astrological sign and its meaning in the horoscope, see the links in the menu on the left and below.
Leo Horoscope TraitsThe Leo astrological star sign, starting when summer is the most splendid, is the proud cavalier of the horoscope, with the traits of one who wants to shine like the summer sun - and mostly does. The Leo Zodiac sign is a lot about self-realization and the things that make life pleasant.

Leo CompatibilityThe Leo horoscope sign, the cavalier, belongs to the element fire, which is that of energy and activity. So do Aries and Sagittarius, but that doesn't necessarily mean Leo is particularly compatible with them - they need to feel mutual attraction, which is something elusive at times. Nor for that matter is the Leo Zodiac sign always incompatible with, say, the water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, although they are quite different.
All the astrological traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility. Read more about what it means to the Leo horoscope sign here:

Leo Sex HoroscopeThe horoscope also reveals what your sex life is like. That's not only done by the Zodiac sign, but also by the planets, astrological Houses, and aspects. I've made a whole section about how to track sexuality in the complete horoscope on my general astrology site:
