Leo Zodiac Symbol: The Lion
"They swagger about displaying the fruits of luxury- but the sentiments of their honest hearts are without guile." (Manilius, 1st Century)
Throughout history the Lion has been known as the king of the jungle, and revered for its strength and courage. Similar qualities are seen in a Leo, who also enjoys leadership and being the center of attention.
Astrological Element: Fire
Those born under Leo are associated with Fire, and thus a fiery personality. It can also indicate creativity, and a great enthusiasm for life. Although on the flip side, fire signs can easily burn out of control.
The Ruby is one of the rarest and most beautiful star-stones. The wearer of a Ruby is said to be protected from misfortune, with the powers increasing if the Ruby is set in jewellery.
Leos may have strength and courage like a Lion, but they can also have egos too, and like to take control. Their protectiveness can also come across as being bossy and interfering. On the positive side, a Leo can be generous and protective to those around them. They also have an optimistic, enthusiastic, outlook on life. One of their most important leadership qualities is good organization.
Compatibility with Leo:
Leos don’t always like to share the spotlight, and are also very competitive so get on best with star signs that won’t overshadow them. A Leo will generally be compatible with other Fire signs (Aries and Sagittarius) and Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius). Although Air and Fire signs seek it for different reason, both find common ground in their love of freedom.
