Born of Fiery Dedication
The power of Leo’s influence stems from a deep generosity of spirit. There are few things these grand souls won’t do for the people or causes they support.
Loyalty to their hearts’ commitment is hard, if not impossible, to match. When Leos pledge their love or dedication, it’s a forever kind of promise.
Besides representing the mythology and shape of the Leonine constellation, this fierce fidelity embodies the energy of a proud lion or protective lioness.
As a fixed, fire sign, the magnanimous Leo glows in the presence of his admiring “pride.” Leos bask in the praise offered by loved ones and acolytes. They often become renowned teachers, actors, or other kinds of leaders who know how to shine in the limelight of public scrutiny. They can be stubborn when defending their positions or charges, and their tempers can flare when challenged. But their largess and compassion win out in most cases.
When Leos feel honored in their positions of responsibility, they serve their companies, families, loved ones, and chosen causes with unquestioning devotion. Sincere admiration is the essential fuel needed to sustain the lion’s great fire. If Leos don’t receive high regard from those they serve, they’re apt to become frustrated, irritated, and forlorn. An exasperated lion might even extend his claws and take angry swipes at those he would usually defend.
While some of us have Leo as a sun sign, others find that their Leo energy comes from other planets or asteroids under its influence. The sign where the sun sits at our time of birth is only a small part of a much larger picture.
Clusters of Cosmic Influences
At the exact moment we’re born, all the planets and asteroids are rotating in orbit at specific coordinates. A natal chart accesses that cosmic snapshot of the heavens through mathematics, astronomy, and computer calculations.
When a chart is cast, we discover where all the planets were located with respect to the time and place of our birth. It’s then, and only then, that we can carve out an accurate picture of the astrological elements that may affect our lives.
For those with strong Leo influences, it’s important to manifest a reality that provides leadership opportunities and inspires accomplishments that will attract respect from co-workers and other support systems.
The manifested environment should surround the Leo in an atmosphere of loving admiration. Leos are sustained by honorable devotion—both given and received. They achieve their greatest success by earning the respect they long for.
A Regal Stance
In order to create productive lives and to manifest the realities they desire, those under the influence of Leo must live up to their innate royal stature.
Natural kings and queens, these regal souls are born to lead with benevolence and selfless generosity. If they slide into selfishness, they rob themselves of personal and cultural fulfillment.
Leos thrive in environments of unbridled creativity and childlike exploration. When talented individuals under the Lion’s influence fashion something original, they long to share their creation and their experience of the creative process with the world.
Whether they’ve designed an architectural wonder or composed a new song, they move forward with confidence, eager to announce their project to a waiting and receptive audience.
If the Leo’s audience is less than enthusiastic, it can put a damper on the proud Leonine soul. It’s at these moments that the regal posture of the great Lion needs to come forth. Through practice, the sensitive Leo can come to understand that not all criticism is personal and can indeed serve as valuable feedback.
When authentic confidence grows as a result of the Leo’s worthwhile contributions, it’s not easily undermined, and the resilient Leo will be able to forge a noble destiny.
