The Third House: The House of Pleasure
July 23th through August 22rd
rules the back, spine, and heart. People born under Leo
may suffer from heart problems or back pain more often
than people born under other Signs.
Leo is opposite Aquarius, the Sign of Friends.
Leos jump headfirst into life, without worrying whether their latest goal
is realistic or practical. They tend to seek power more than other Signs,
and because of this people sometimes feel they are obnoxious, boastful,
self-centered, or rude. But despite their sometimes hotheaded or cutting
response, Leos are cheerful. They are always happy as long as someone
is paying attention to them. Pleasure is important to people born under
Leo, and they like to spend money to feel good. At their extreme, some
Leos can be vain and childish or overbearing in their reactions.
Leo's great need is to create. People born under this Sign have the vitality
and ambition to be successful in their creative endeavors. They tend to
be opinionated, but they have a strong ability to see their projects through
to the end. Leos may be arrogant or egotistical, but they are good organizers
and tend to be popular and even inspiring. They sometimes feel they are
the center of the universe. They are gregarious and social, fun-loving,
and live life with enthusiasm. As leaders, Leos are decisive and direct,
optimistic that they will succeed. Sometimes they exaggerate problems
and overreact to stumbling blocks, but generally they are positive and
their natural pride and stubborn streak keep them from giving up. They
can be demanding leaders, but they are also generous.
The great strength of the Leo-born is in their creativity and generosity
with others. Sometimes these two can combine, resulting in thoughtful
gifts or unique solutions to problems.
Their creative and theatrical natures make them among the most flamboyant
characters of the Zodiac.
