As I enter my 43rd year this coming week, ignorantly dancing through life on this planet, I thought I'd share with all y'all some important (Whoot? LOL) Zodiac information about my beloved sun sign. Yes, it's true...I am a LEO. Like THAT was a surprise!
For purely entertainment purposes, I have added "editorial" comments to the following description of "LEO", which probably better describe my lot in life as a ferocious lion. My additions are in this color.
The Lion is considered the king (ah, make that queen please) of the jungle, and likewise you Leos have an air of royalty about you (I, on the other hand, have more of a "smell about me"). Some Leos even have hair resembling the thick mane of the Lion (I used to have "thick" hair...now I'm balding and the only thing still "thick" on my head is my skull!).
But Lions are more than roar, for they are truly magnificent beasts (Probably got that "beast" part right). The Lioness proudly cares for the young, hunts and takes care of survival with relentless intent and ferocity, when needed (MKay, this may be the only true part about me...I am partial to monitoring the welfare of children and where food is involved...you BETCHA I'm a hunter!). And proud are you Leo! (Yes, I regularly brag about my PWT status...poor white trash.) Perhaps that's why Leo often chooses work that puts you in the center of stage or in the spotlight of appreciation (Or in my case, in the gutters of society).
Leo are warm of spirit (The hot flashes help with this), eager for action and are driven by a desire to be loved for what you bring to others. Leo are a magnanimous leader and a faithful servant (What? What's that "servant part??). Once scorned in love, however, Leo will withdraw your affections and the light, once brilliant, can go cold (In other words for the motto of the LEO, "If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. And if it doesn't come back, track it down and shoot it").
Leo motto might be "What you see is what you get." (Or, "This is it, dumba$$") You tend to live your live straightforwardly and with a flair for drama (Yes, every day is a new "stage" in my life...argh argh!). In fact, many Leos are attracted to the theater, the performing arts and public relations, for you truly understand the importance of putting on a good presentation (This really, really doesn't fit for me, since I can't even seem to find the gumption to iron my clothes or comb my hair...but I DO iron my sheets, so...).
As you blaze gloriously through your life, remember to take time to acknowledge the feelings of those around you (You mean other people HAVE feelings?!?). If you forget, you could unconsciously hurt someone you love (Apology is my middle name). But, if you remain aware your impact, others can benefit from your presence (Do they really mean "impaction" here?!?..Yep, it's a bowel joke!).
Fire signs are naturally warm. A fire gives light and heat, but it doesn't get depleted as others feed on its warmth (But it CAN burn you!). One candle can bring light to a room and it won't burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one (But there IS that waxy build-up). Fire doesn't plan its next move; it isn't logical (Now THERE'S an understatement!!!). It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought (Or regard for "its" fatigue and MS either). For this reason, fire signs can successfully rely on their intuition and survival instincts. The fire of Leo is brilliant and intense (I've been called that before. INTENSE, not brilliant). It's like the summer Sun that relentlessly shows up every day and whose heat continues to build over a period of time (Sometimes igniting forest fires, requiring many people to extinguish it).
Fifth House: Children
The Fifth House is directly related to children, but it is also associated with any type of childlike activity (And, since I never had children of my own, I can only claim to be "childlike". Now that I think of it, I HAVE been referred to that before, but I don't think it was a "good" thing). Even grown-ups need to play and this is a function of the Fifth House. In fact, all self-expression and creativity comes from this sector. Additionally, this is the House of Romantic Love (Yeah, right...my "house of love" is lacking running water, electricity, and furniture. But COME ON OVER!). Truly, the Fifth House could be called the House of Enjoyment.
Key Planet: Sun
The Sun is the undisputed King (Or QUEEN!) of our little planetary system. (S)He is always in the center. Without his/her light, there would be no life here on earth. Although the Sun is 93 million miles distant, its warmth is the basis for all energy on Earth. Astrologically, the Sun represents our will (And I DO have one...as well as a durable power of attorney and a healthcare advance directive!). It's like the fuel that fires each of our individual furnaces and gives us cause to live. As the key planet of Leo, the Sun is the symbol of the self and from it stems all individuality and creativity.
Leo Greatest Strength: Your playful and loving nature (Hmmm...I suppose I should work on this one)
Leo Possible Weakness: Need for approval can become too important. (Why DO you think I write a blog, after all??!?!?)
