Leo as a sun sign

The power of the Sun is strongest in Leo, the sign it rules. Those born at the time of year when the Sun is travelling through its own sign will be powerfully endowed with its fine characteristics and qualities — and, of course, its faults. Organization is very important to Leos, who really feel the need to be fully in control of their lives. It is often the case that, when working or living with less well organized people, they will exert their influence over them. Leos will do as much as possible to encourage them, not only to sort themselves out, but also to develop their potential to the full. It is because of this tendency that many Leos are accused of bossiness — quite rightly so, but at least their attempts to dominate are made for what they believe are the right reasons. It is important that Leos realize they must avoid becoming dogmatic and fixed in their opinions, and instead develop flexibility of outlook. Otherwise a closed mind and the inability to accept others' opinions and lifestyles will cause unpopularity. However, the fire element of their sign burns very brightly, exuding warmth, generosity, and enthusiasm — both for their own interests and in the encouragement of all with whom they come into contact.
