LEO... is the most fixed of the fire signs. Like a lion, the king of the jungle, the Leo is magnetic, generous, and impulsive, moving through life with a willful and mesmerizing aura. The majestic Leo is commanding, resolute and courageous. However, even kings have fallen, or what else does history teach us than that all make mistakes? The Leo is all about power and innate substance, making them high-spirited and inspiring, but also sinking them through their boast assertion of their own superiority.
Do not let the natural arrogance of the Leo affect you, for it is capable in manifesting itself in the most dramatically awful ways. Overconfidence, the root of this natural aura of the Leo, can cause you to take on too much onto yourself, more than you will be able to handle. The lion is a bold animal, it can kill with a swipe of its paw - but even the lion cannot physically move a grown elephant. It can however, redirect its forces into intimidating it to move. The horoscope can be your guide to show you where your efforts will be the most effective, for that, everyone can see that you have strength, but its maximum potential only dawns on life when you use it wisely.
Your pride may also make you overly vulnerable. Exposure to harsh words from loved ones, words that may hurt you more than the typical sign, may be avoided if you foresee confrontations from a week ahead. We do not say flee, we say that seeing the probabilities of things ahead of you may prove to be useful in protecting your pride later, and ensuring you have more successes to show to the world as well.
Leos are ruled by the Sun - the center of our solar system and the fuel for life. However, with such celestial power behind them, comes unpredictability. Solar flares may affect the chances of success of a Leo's venture - not directly, but though the energy which they dissipate upon the representatives of this sign. It does not require much wisdom to see that certain times are just energetically more fit for signing contracts, for establishing new business relationships - or not only business ones either. Many things may affect the Leo's energy - their general mood, the amount of appreciation they get, the motivation at work and the support of their loved ones, to name a few. However, it is indisputable that the Leos have ties to the Sun that are unparalleled by any other of the zodiac signs. It is important for the Leo to check the horoscope on occasion to see what the future period may hold energetically. Perhaps it will be best to postpone large enterprises and activities to next week. Alternatively, perhaps, now is the crucial moment to execute the most important of plans.
The Sun is not the only planet that has an effect on the Leo. Pluto is its planet exalt - means it is responsible for nothing but being a backup ally, providing the supporting passive energy necessary for the Leo to withstand its foes. Celestially, the Leo has enough foes as it is. Uranus, the planet responsible for the "expulsion" of the Leo sign, is a planet shrouded in mystery with ambiguous but usually negative effects on the Leo's life. So is Mercury, responsible for its "fall". You monitor your competition in the real world, so it might make sense to control the enemies fighting for your energy and luck as well. On the other hand, since you cannot control them - at least, through a horoscope you can know their moves ahead of time.
