The Story of Leo the Lion
The constellation of Leo
The story of the constellation of Leo the Lion originates from the Greek myth of Heracles and his 12 trials.
Heracles’ first trial was to kill the Nemean Lion, a ferocious beast that terrorized the villages and citizens of Peloponnese.
Heracles went hunting for the beast, but quickly found it would be difficult to kill. It had skin like armor that could not be penetrated by arrows.
Finally, he decided to wrestle with the Lion, eventually choking it to death in a great battle. He removed the lion’s pelt, cutting the skin with its own claws, and returned with it to prove his victory.
Legend says the Lion was cast into the stars, forever commemorating the fierce battle that Heracles won with sheer strength and courage.

Leo is a Fire Sign
The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to compliment each other.
The Element of Fire symbolizes the burning desire to succeed. It represents self-expression, assertiveness, enthusiasm and passion.
Fire is thought to be the most fundamental of the four elements.

The Qualities of Leo
The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. Signs that share a Quality are thought to be uncomplimentary.
The Quality determines the basis for an individual’s disposition.
Those with a certain Quality will tend to have commanding characteristics that are deep-rooted and change little throughout their lifetime.
Each Quality views the world uniquely and reacts to situations in their own way. This means that their reasoning and actions may be contradictory to the other Qualities.
The Quality of Leo is “Fixed”
The Fixed Quality is known to be solid and steady. Those with this Quality are likely to be dedicated, self-confident and full of ambition.
On the flip side, Fixed signs can be seen as inflexible, self-absorbed and closed off to new ideas or ways of doing things.
The Positive Side of Leo
Leonians are bound to be the most faithful and generous people you know. They have a wealth of enthusiasm, drive and determination.
They can be very creative and they usually have great ideas for how to get things done.

What’s to dislike about Leo?
Leonians can be seen as domineering and bossy. Their stubbornness and refusal to consider change or new ideas will often seem pompous and intolerant.
Those born under the sign of Leo will be prone to arguments and quick to assert their control on those around them.
They may be known to interfere in situations that do not otherwise concern them, convinced they have all the answers.
What is Leo good at?
Leo has the drive and determination to be successful in any career field they choose. However, Leos have a need to be in control and find it difficult to take orders from others.
This means that they are most likely to be found in leadership positions or working furiously to achieve a higher title.
Great careers for Leonians would be: surgeon, lead actor, motivational speaker, sales leader, jeweler, CEO or brand spokesperson.
Leo would also be well-suited to self-employment and entrepreneurship, where every aspect of their work is self-controlled and the results are in their hands.

Leo on Holiday
Suggested Vacations for Leo
Only first-class accommodation will please a Leo. Their desire is to be treated like royalty.
This means that anyone going on holiday with a Leo should consider 5-star resorts, restaurants, theatres and transportation. They want the best food, the best seats and the best locale.
A tour through Europe, including stops at castles and vineyards along the way, would be good.
Or, if a beach destination is preferred, consider the sparkling waters of the Caribbean.
The perfect winter vacation would be a ski holiday at a luxurious lodge in Aspen (Colorado, USA).
