Leo in the Complete Horoscope
The Lion Zodiac Sign in Classical Astrology
The Leo Sign in the Horoscope Chart
Leo, the Lion, is the fifth sign of the zodiac. The sun enters it on or around July 23, when the summer is at its peak. Leo belongs to the element fire, its quality is fixed and its charge is positive. Its Ruler is the sun, and Pluto exalts in it. Its motto is: "I want." In the horoscope chart, the zodiac sign Leo brings a proud and prominent character to planets and astrological houses therein.
Your Leo Zodiac SignThose who have Leo as their zodiac sign (star sign) are born when the sun was in Leo, normally July 23 - August 22 (it differs slightly from year to year, because of the leap years). Therefore, it is also - more adequately - called the sun sign.
Observe that it's just one of the many components of the complete horoscope chart. Nowadays, star sign astrology is much more widespread and common than readings based on the classical birth chart, but the latter is what astrology is really all about.
The sun in your horoscope is your natural self - what you are when you relax, when other planets in your horoscope are not active. It is your basic drive.
If your sun sign is Leo, you are a proud person, with a strong sense of integrity and the importance of being true to yourself. It is the major sun sign, so it is natural for you to shine. To a Leo, life is very much the individual achievement, and the ability to rech a place of distinction in society - but mostly, to be able to have pride in oneself.
The Father of LeoThe sun in the horoscope also represents your father (the mother is represented by the moon).
If you have the sun in Leo, your relation to your father is one of high mutual respect. It is also mutual in the way that you both feel a need to be proud of each other, in order to be proud of yourselves. It's kind of a gentlemen's agreement.
The Planets in LeoThe planets and astrological points are the active forces in the horoscope chart, the energies by which we are able to act. As such, each has its own characteristics, but they are influenced by the zodiac sign they occupy. When a planet or other point of the horoscope is in Leo, it is also affected by the zodiac sign, getting something of its character. Here are those planetes and astrological points, what they stand for in the complete horoscope chart, and how they are affected by the zodiac sign Leo:
The Houses in LeoThe astrological Houses are life environments, different sections of what constitutes our everyday reality. The Zodiac signs bring their characteristics to the Houses, influencing the environments described by them. Here are the twelve Houses, what they stand for, and how the Zodiac sign Leo affects them:
Leo in GeneralOf course, all of the above is very general, mainly to give you an idea of how the Leo zodiac sign works in the horoscope and influences its different components. You need to study your complete horoscope chart carefully, to make a deeper and more nuanced interpretation.
Leo in Zodiac Sign AstrologyIf Leo is your zodiac sign, also called star sign or sun sign, it means that the sun was in that sign at your birth. For much more about what that means in astrology and the horoscope, please go to my website devoted to this zodiac sign:
