Leo in the Complete Horoscope

The Lion Zodiac Sign in Classical Astrology

Leo Zodiac sign in Astrology


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.

       Please observe that the text on this webpage is about the role of the Leo zodiac sign in the complete horoscope chart, and not just its meaning as a star sign, also called sun sign (when the sun was in Leo at the time of your birth).


Your Leo Zodiac Sign

The sun, the basis of Zodiac sign astrology. Woodcut. Those 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 reach a place of distinction in society - but mostly, to be able to have pride in oneself.


The Father of Leo

The 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.


Leo, by Hevelius.

The Planets in Leo

The 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 planets and astrological points, what they stand for in the complete horoscope chart, and how they are affected by the zodiac sign Leo:
