The sign of Leo is associated with one's self-confidence, personal will
and dramatic expression. The house that Leo occupies in the natal chart
shows an area of life where one has a need for recognition. It is where
one can be prideful, self-centered, and domineering, as well as loyal,
generous, and affectionate. Leo is a radiant and loving sign symbolically
represented by the Sun and the heart. The role of personal or individual
self-expression, which manifests as fertility and creativity, becomes
emphasized during Leo. Issues involving royalty and government rulers,
gold, the stock market, the entertainment industry, professional sports
and children, become accentuated during the Leo cycle.
