Characteristics of Leo
Expression is the key to understanding Leo.
Leo has no secrets and needs to express his mind. The endpoint for Leo is the development of personality.
Leo must learn to say yes to life, their path is one of affirmation and positiveness. They need to banish all pettiness, pickiness, and narrowness from their mind. Fear and suspicion have no place in their world nothing that inhibits their self-expression can be tolerated.
In astrology, Leo has long been the symbol of kings, but one should also see Leo as the symbol of the Child. The self-dramatizing, present tense spirit so often seen in children is the essence of Leo.
Leos should celebrate themselves. Be creative and hide no secrets. Above all maintaining the innocence, spontaneity, and freshness of a child.
