    Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, which the Sun transits during the second month of summer – i.e., the height of the summer season – from about July 23rd to about August 22nd. The symbol for Leo is The Lion; its polarity is positive; its element is fire; its quality is fixed; its cosmic ruler is the Sun; and on the human anatomy Leo rules the heart...

    Like the Sun, the center of the solar system, people born under the sign Leo belong at the center of their world, radiating the energy of fire and exerting the magnetism of fixity. Leos – who include not only Sun-sign Leos, but all in whose horoscopes the sign is emphasized – do not need to sally forth to assert their powerful individuality; their business is simply to be, and, by their very existence, to influence the lives of those around them...

    There is a natural assumption of authority in the Leo nature that is different from the driving ambition of Capricorn. While Capricorn seeks to climb to a position of power, Leo already possesses that power by divine right. Like the infant who rules the household from his crib; like the king surrounded by his loyal subjects; or like the creative artist in his studio, proud and lordly Leo is in total control of his universe...

    Although they seem self-contained, Leos actually need other people to give to, and they need to feel that their gifts are appreciated. Generous and noble of spirit, they are also victims of pride, and they can become isolated from the love and support they need because they are too proud to ask for it. If in their insecurity they imagine that their power is of their own making, they can fall into the trap of tyranny and take some spectacular falls...

    Hence, Leo can be the most charming, or the most obnoxious of all the signs, depending upon early education and other factors in the horoscope, There is no use telling a Leo child that the world does not revolve around him. He knows otherwise, and parents must find ways to curb the annoying Leo egocentricity without nipping the joyous Leo creativity in the bud...

    Leo children love to please and perform; but if the focus is temporarily away from them, they may stage loud dramatic scenes in order to regain center stage. In dealing with the sensitive young Leonine ego, the use of parental authority will probably just encourage resistance. But genuine affection and an appeal to their “better nature” works wonders...

    For Leo is, or should be, a sign of joy: innocent, fun-loving, eternally childlike, living in the moment, discovering the infinite richness of His creation – the true child of God – like Adam in the Garden of Eden before the fall. (In modern psychology Leo corresponds to the pleasure principle.)

    The Leonine dramatic sense and tendency to dominate – while great assets on the stage – can create problems in an intimate relationship. The need to give can also be a need to control the person to whom one is giving, and the very intensity of Leo’s giving can be hard to take, causing an affair to “burn out” before its time. On the other hand, an evolved Leo person who is conscious of his/her own egoistic tendencies can be a wonderful mate: generous, imaginative, witty, loyal, romantic, and totally committed to giving their partner the best of everything...

    Leo exhibitionism may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but those who can respond to it will be royally entertained. Although Leo rules children, it is not a particularly fertile sign, and many Leos will produce no offspring, preferring to remain the child themselves – or to produce works of art (which won’t compete with them for attention) instead of children.

    Their most compatible signs are: Aries, Libra, Gemini and Sagittarius; Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo and Pisces are neutral; and Taurus and Scorpio are likely to be difficult. With another Leo there will be competition for attention and control. With Aquarius, Leo’s polar opposite and complementary sign, there will be both attraction and tension, the outcome depending, as with all combinations, on how the two horoscopes interact as a whole, and not on the compatibility of the Sun-signs alone...

    With their faith in their own abilities, willpower, and flair for attracting attention, Leos are born leaders and almost always succeed, sometimes even in the absence of any real talent or particular expenditure of effort on their part. Their cosmic ruler is a star, and Leos are particularly apt to shine in the entertainment world, the theatre, the arts, the world of fashion and the arena of politics. Like leaven, they will naturally rise to the top of any field...

    The colors of Leo are yellow, red and gold; its birthstones are the sardonyx and the topaz, and its day of the week is Sunday, which is ruled by the Sun...

    The following are some prominent African-Americans born under the sign Leo:

    James Baldwin, Halle Berry, Tempest Bledsoe, Barry Bonds, Ron Brown, Wilt Chamberlain, Coolio, Janet DuBois, Patrick Ewing, Vivica Fox, Marcus Garvey, William Gray, Alex Haley, Isaac Hayes, Geoffrey Holder, Whitney Houston, Iman, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Vernon Jordan, Alan Keyes, Aminata Moseka (the former Abbey Lincoln), Sen. Barack Obama, Walter Payton, Melvin Van Peebles, David Robinson, Al Roker, Carl Rowan, Deion Sanders, Wesley Snipes, Malcolm Jamal-Warner and Doug Williams...

    Leo often makes the best friend for Pisces, because the Leo’s warm heart and need for adulation can accept wholeheartedly the devotion and admiration that Pisces is so ready to give...

    On the other hand Virgo is usually an anathema to Leo, with their urge to criticize everything and everyone. Virgo does not suit Leos’ sense of magnanimity, which is one of their finest characteristics...

    Leos very often resemble the symbol for their sign, The Lion. Their hair is usually noticeably thick and attractively unruly, just like the lion's mane...

    Leos on the Internet...

    The lordly Leo's innate courage and progressiveness will have him leading the way to the Web. Leo will look for cultural and artistic websites. This sign rules the theater, and Leos love good, first-rate entertainment...and will want the very best in theater arrangements. The Lion will look to the Internet for theater seating and, knowing what is best, will get those tickets via the Web. Then, off again into cyberspace, shopping for tasteful, elegant clothing in which to make that grand entrance...

    The vast world of entertainment is out there waiting to be had, and Leo knows this. Thus, the fearless king is constantly in pursuit of something new and better than what came before. Leo loves to play and turn life into a game. The Internet makes this possible...

    The only thing about the Web that bothers Leo is that his physical presence just doesn't stand out in the anonymity of cyberspace, and instant gratification is not as readily available as it often is in real life. Leo is invisible - in the old meaning of the word - while in the system. Being ignored and overlooked does not sit well with this royal sign...

    Leo loves keeping in touch with friends using portals for e-mail chats. If Leo is single, this innately romantic sign will seek out romantic websites that might assist in finding a consort. Here are some sites the Lion will appreciate:

    I see myself

    Aqil, i saw myself in most of the description listed here! I really did! HOwever, as a child I didn't seek or want attention but it was granted anyway. In fact, i don't neccesarily want attention, but yes to be acknowledged for my contributions. Three are times, when i just want to blend into the background but as you mentioned, others look upon us for leadership.

    and Yes, I look really good in bold yellow, gold and red! However, i thought my birthstone was the peridot?

    Other Leo entertainer you left out: Whitney Houstan (what drama, huh?) and Lawrence Fishburne, also Angela Bassett.

    I do have artistic talents that are just now being cultivated.

    I enjoyed reading this, what is your source?

    You were born on the cusp of the fire sign Leo and the earth sign Virgo, Thandiwe, and this means that there will be a definite mixture of tendencies in your nature. Inevitably, you will have both positive and negative astrological influences, for astrology designates the air and fire signs as positive, and the earth and water signs as negative. The positive person tends to be more aggressive, impatient, and outer-directed; while the negative person tends to be more passive, patient, and inner-directed...

    The combination of Leo and Virgo, however, can have the unfortunate result of producing an extremely vain individual who finds petty fault with everything others do. On the other hand, the well-balanced person instead combines unique analytical ability with impressive power of expression, and influences people without alienating them...

    Leo is ruled by the Sun, and Virgo is ruled by Mercury; thus you are likely to find your best means of self-expression through communications. Acting, teaching, journalism, advertising, counseling - there are so many ways in which the basic need to communicate can be expressed that you are certain to find one exactly suited to your needs...

    The element of Leo is fixed fire; that of Virgo mutable earth. In this fortunate combination Leo's fire will provide inspiration, enthusiasm, and vitality; Virgo's earth puts those qualities to practical use through the exercise of the intellect. Not only that, but the fixed quality of Leo also confers the ability to use resources successfully; the mutability of Virgo softens the resistance to change that Leo can sometimes experience, providing understanding and diplomacy...

    Thus you may have to overcome a tendency toward petty faultfinding; but you can do that easily if you exercise the analytical ability, the powerful expressiveness, the ability to communicate, and the vitality and enthusiasm that is inherent in this combination...

    Peace.

    i can see that too!

    I can see alot of accuracies in this also. However, I have some more questions, if you don't mind.

    The positive person tends to be more aggressive, impatient, and outer-directed. this is definitely me, these words seemingly are negative. Where does the positiveness come with this combination of being aggressive,impatient, and outer-directed (please explain this further). Those are all the things that people take as being problematic.

    ------------

    I TRY TO LOOK FOR THE MORE POSITIVE THINGS IN PEOPLE, HOWEVER, IT SEEMS THAT OTHERS ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THIS IN ME. YOU SAY THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE VAIN, BUT IT IS OFTEN OTHERS WHO PLACE THAT UPON US.

    Check this, my younger sister use to always say, "you think you are always right". My reply, "no you think, I think, I'm always right". In most of those cases, I was right but I'm not the "I told you so" person. Why is it the others place us in leadership position and then find fault with the way we do things. The same things like the aspects you listed "aggressive, impatient, and outer-directed" are the same things that turn people off.

    I do find myself to better express myself through poetry. I'm an currently working in education, and I would make a hell of a promoter and ad writer. I do these things for free for friends and associates. Being the great talker, I do my best work by word-of-mouth. NOw the acting area, I believe I would come off stiff as Whitney movies. :)

    I have found all this very interesting, thanks for taking the time.

    Peace and Love,

    Thandiwe
