Leo is the sign of the Sun (positive), fixed fire, the solar plexus of the Cosmic Man, a lion. As sign no. 5, it shows a need for order and harmony around a central will and character influence. Leo individuals possess a strong sense of self, character and will in life. They know who they are and want others to recognize it.
They can be refined in their manners or philosophical in their outlook on life. Leos have strong and noble hearts but can suffer from too powerful emotions or too much need for attention. They do not always do well in partnership and tend to form alliances with inferiors or to subordinate their partners to them. They may suffer from their children, as they do not always give them enough independence.
They like to turn others into satellites, which may in turn rebel against them. If they can control their pride they can develop much power of character that can take them through all the highs and lows of life and grant them a spiritual perception. Inwardly they can develop the greatness of soul and character. As they have a high standard for themselves they can become very dejected if they fail or do not succeed as much as they wish. Fallen Leo types can be among the most miserable of people.
