(Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) exhibit righteousness. These people conform to the standard of moral law. They do what is right and are known for their sense of fair play. They are truthful, straight-forward, just, upright and virtuous in their dealings with other men. The Fire signs are the true warriors.
Fixed signs like stability. They want to own things. They want to be the boss and let the cardinal signs run things for them. Fixed Signs are stubborn, fixed in position. They frequently take longer to start, but they never seem to stop.
The houses of the horoscope represent different areas of life, described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. The placement of a planet or zodiac sign in a house will determine, to a large degree, the area of life in which it acts, and the goals and activities on which its drive or impulse will be focused.
To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the Gods and their influence on human affairs. To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives and impulses within the human psyche. These drives express themselves as different qualities throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac and in different circles of life through the twelve houses.
Medical astrology, traditionally known as Iatromathematics, is an ancient medical system of healing connecting the body and disease with the twelve astrological signs. Each astrological sign, along with the sun, moon, and planets are associated with different parts of the human body that correlate to disorders of its associated muscles, nerve systems and organs.
The system of medical astrology has been used to codify the associations of the signs of the zodiac with the parts of the body as follows: Leo – heart, chest, spine, spinal column, upper back.
The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body:
Sun – heart, spine, and general vitality. With a robust love for life and accomplishments, you cannot do anything half-heartedly. It is within your nature to push yourself and go all the way.
The king of the jungle has integrity, reputation and your pride is strongest among the zodiac signs. Your inate weakness centers around your heart, chest and circulatory system. You also have a connection to the back and spinal column, so caution should be taken when lifting heavy objects, working out in the gym or overdoing it at work. You must exercise smart, eat regularly and sensibly and seek fresh air and sunshine as much as possible.
Your healing color is orange.
Leo is ruled by the arms, lungs, shoulders, hands, nervous system, brain.
You are constantly running, both mind and body, so the best advise for you is to make time for a balanced lifestyle. Your nervous, restless energy needs exercise as an outlet, more sleep than most of the signs of the zodiac and time to sit down to enjoy a meal.
Your arms and shoulders are your inherent weakness. Keeping them strong and not overworking them, will make a great difference.
If you work with your hands, it is important to take care of them, as they are also your tools of the trade.
Keep your mind sharp and keep it rested. It is important to turn off that Gemini mind in order to rest and recharge the battery.
Your healing color is yellow.
Leo is yang in nature. Yang energy is more masculine, is related to light, sun, brightness, heaven, time, south, east and left. Yang signs are the odd numbered ones. Those belonging to yang energy have a tendency to be more assertive and self-expressive.

Leos are lucky people. You’re ruled by the Sun and Sunday is your lucky day for healing, spirituality and wish work. One is your lucky number. One – Vibrates to the sun – the ruler of Leo. For Leos the sun is consciousness, the ego, the self, and represents masculine energy – the father figure. One represents beginning – new beginnings – inspiration – ideas, confidence and instinct.

Money and Leo
Money is your reward for hard work. Some important values about money include giving, sharing, accepting compliments and recognizing new beginnings.
Leos are lavishing with their money. You are often so generous, it is to your own fault. Givers to those in need – family, friends, co-workers, even perfect strangers, if a you think it can help someone’s situation, you are there to help. Money for you, is to be enjoyed.
You can lavish others with expensive gifts, give to charities, as well as lavishing yourself with deserving gifts. Drawn to the opulence of life, to five-star luxury and living high, you always tend to make enough money to live this lifestyle. Were you can fall short is on saving.
It would be a good lesson learned early in life to learn how to save more than you spend. This keeps you a better balanced cat! Now get money!
Leo and Career
Abundance is a long lasting, enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. Your career should be something you absolutely love doing. Since we spend the majority of our lives working, why would you ever just do something to get by. Life is much too short to not be doing something that brings you joy and happiness, reward and fulfillment, pride and satisfaction!
Leos are born leaders. Whether owning your own business, a quick riser up the corporate ladder or someone in the spotlight, you love being the boss, managing a corporation or being a celebrity.
You love center stage. You are drawn to glittery, famous and glamorous careers, people and jobs. You can work well as a fashion designer, beautician, actor, director, celebrity, top executive, agent or corporate mogul. You have the ability to get people to do what you want.
You are charming, enthusiastic and charismatic and people are drawn into your confidence and power. You command attention and get respect. On the othe side of the coin, ego, unchecked, can be trouble for you. If you are not careful, you can turn pride into arrogance and generousity into conceit and become too demanding, controlling and bossy. Balance for Leo is found in spirituality. Now find success!
Happiness and Leo
Happiness is an expression of gratitude. Research has found that a great deal of unhappiness stems from negative thoughts. Happiness is not just a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. Happiness is a rhythm, an order, a balance. We choose to be happy.
Leos can be happy people. You have a love of life and want to enjoy all its wonderful pleasures. It is your sunny disposition that bestows light and life, and others are attracted to that light. You therefore, find pleasure from helping others enjoy life as much as you do.
You are a natural entertainer with wit and humor and you love making others happy with this trait, which in turn brings you happiness. You are also happy when you enjoy the fruits of your labor. Being a fixed sign, makes you rather stubborn and resistant to change that is imposed upon you. That is why it is important for you to swallow the pill of change slowly in order for it to digest and sink in.
You are much better off when you have time to digest change and make it your own. Any one that undermines the dignity, pride or ego of a Leo will suffer deeply. Now find happiness!
Sex and Leo
Our “sexual-esteem” or positive reverence for and confidence in our capability to experience our sexuality in a satisfying and enjoyable way are all a part of our sexual health and a very important part of our well being. Our most sexual organ is the brain! Our minds can create the most perfect fantasies or sexual relationship. It is the power of our minds that can enhance the desired sexual experiences and is what realizes our sexual pleasure.
Leos are sexual beings. You are not only visually sexy through your pride and confidence, but you are a very visual being when it come to sexuality.
The sexual power must remain in charge with Leo, unless you wish to designate it through role play. Your charisma draws many to you and good looks are very important to you. Your ultimate win is someone who is loyal and keeps you on that high pedestal.
You are fiery and passionate and a very generous spirit. You love to flirt but once you give your heart, you remain constant, loyal and true. Now get sex!
On the Edge: Born on the Cusp
If you were born within a few days of the Sun’s movement from one zodiac sign to the next, this means you were born “on the cusp,” and you’ll feel the influence from both zodiac signs. This combination creates a “personality type” that makes you unique!
Cusp of Cancer and Leo
July 19 to July 25
Known as the cusp of Oscillation, here is a question? What do you get when you mix the water element of Cancer with the fire element of Leo? You feel like a swinging pendulum of cool and hot, yin and yang, back and forth!
You are the drama queen of the cusp signs! Your sensitive Cancer side can combine with your dramatic Leo side and create one big show stopping number! The flip side of this coin, is pulling back into yourself, as you crawl back in your shell. This is where the lion can roar, yet no one hears your screams. Your greatest challenge is to discover a comfortable middle ground between these extremes.
To do this, it will take hard work and self-discipline. It is certainly obtainable, but you will need to apply yourself using tools such as meditation, yoga or swimming. Helping others is a selfless act that can take you away from being too focused on yourself.
Also know, that the big heart of Leo and the sensitive Cancer cosmically combine to create a big-hearted love for a long lasting relationship, a treasured family and home life and the pride to manage them.
Cusp of Leo and Virgo
August 19 to August 25
This is considered the cusp of Exposure! This blend of Leo’s dramatic fire with Virgo’s earthy, almost anti-social behavior, offers this new personality of extremes. Exposing you as either brash, loud and direct, or silent, secretive and shut down.
You can be cautious, with discriminating taste in regards to what you do and do not like and can be very steadfast about it. You are hard working and diligent. You find focus and dedication when it matters and are honest and success driven.
But, as your two elements collide, you may also show others your manipulative, stubborn and melodramatic side. You are, after all, the born leader with an obsession for organization and orderly behavior.
What you need most to balance your life is trust and openness, which incidentally, are the same traits that are found in both intimacy and the power of spirituality.
