Leo Season runs between July 23rd and August 22nd – the hottest time of the year in the northern hemisphere. This is reflected in the warm, playful personality of a Leo, and their sunny, gregarious nature. We can liken Leo’s generous, benevolent character to a campfire, barbecue, carnival or beach party. Complete with singing and dancing, all have a way of inviting you closer. Leos draw everyone in and keep them enthralled; they thrive with an audience, and make the best storytellers, ready to serenade a crowd, flickering with excitement and radiating heat!
They are natural thespians
Leo is the star performer of the Zodiac, represented by the Lion, a cinematic emblem, a symbol of drama, theatre, and showmanship. Similarly, a Leo can take the spotlight and dazzle. Commonly triple threat entertainers (or striving to be seen as talented in all categories – singers, dancers and actors), this sign has unmatched charisma. Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Whitney Houston all stand out in this regard, while one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses (Sandra Bullock) was born under this lucky star, along with Halle Berry, Gillian Anderson, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, Viola Davis, Elisabeth Moss, Hilary Swank, Amy Adams and Anna Kendrick – the list goes on!
They are regal, to be adorned in gold
Governed by the Sun, these commanding people radiate VIP status, and are the natural ‘good kings’ and cherished queens of the Zodiac. It’s suggested that every Leo find a throne to sit on, a domain and kingdom to oversee or rule, a way to be noticed. This might be around their home and family life, their business or workplace, even commanding attention through a special passion, hobby, craft, sporting feat or their look (particularly their hair!) Ideally they find a place to excel, demonstrating their prowess, basking in appreciation, and sensing their own stellar qualities. They may marry into royalty or power (like Meghan Markle and Jackie Onassis) or claim the reigns and a title through sheer perseverance and their own promise, like Barack Obama. What’s certain is that they’ll always be adored by loyal fans, capable of holding themselves with dignity. A crown or tiara sits well upon their head, and they carry lavish, luxurious touches like no other sign.
They have to create
Procreation (romance, lovemaking and pregnancy), recreation (games, competitions, vacations and athleticism), or pure, unadulterated creative potential (putting on a show) is their forte. Whether their pride and joy are their children, a well-versed talent or special project, every Leo has creativity at their disposal. It’s their birth right! From Leo Kylie Jenner with her sidekick Stormi, and lip kits that proudly bear her name, to actress, writer and director Greta Gerwig, or notorious artist Andy Warhol, Leo can put pen to paper, pencil to lips or brush to palette. Any medium is a potential vehicle to express themselves, including fashion. Coco Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent, Anna Sui and Louis Vuitton are all Leo-born designers with different styles but a common finesse.
They’re guaranteed to show you a good time
With bags of personality, it’s important Leo put heart and soul into life itself, really living it to the max! They can bring the party – or make it come to them! Cara Delevingne, Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Cattrall and Dua Lipa all have an unmissable sass and stage presence, affirming the strength and magnetism of Leo in their element. Stand by them, shower them with affection, highlight their positive traits with sincere compliments and take their photo! In turn they’ll shine affirming rays of confidence your way, helping you with the best camera angle. Know they’re in a league of their own, and see them as your ticket to fun.
