Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Warm-hearted and self-confident Leaders
The sign of the Lion is that of Leo. It is governed by the fourth ray of arts and beauty.
The sign Leo is ruled by the life-giving Sun, and it is called the royal sign of the Zodiac; therefore it confers upon the children which are born under its influence a noble, ambitious and aspiring nature...They make good leaders but poor followers. Being of a noble and lofty character themselves they scorn mean and sordid things nor will they stoop to do a low act even under great provocation or the strong urge of self-interest.
Max Heindel, The Message of the Stars
The fifth Sign of the Zodiac is the kingly (or queenly) one, causing its natives to be royal within. Leo belongs to the element of Fire. This makes them warm-hearted and in love with life. Able to use their mind to solve even the most difficult problems, they will easily take initiative in resolving various complicated situations. Ruled by the Sun, Leo worships this fiery entity in the sky, quite literally as well as metaphorically.
Leos can be very courageous and daring, very kind and unselfish. Inwardly, Leo is attuned to those great beings of the Angel world who are known as the Thrones.
These natives are naturally self-confident, powerful, generous, warm-hearted and affectionate. They enjoy leadership and excel in their endeavors. They are thorough in their labors and their creative performances.
