Leo sign of the zodiac meaning“Roam in the world as a lion of self-control;
see that the frogs of weakness don't kick you around.”
—Sri Yukteswar

Leo is ruled by the Sun, and planets in Leo are bright and shine forth with self-assuredness and dignity. People with planets in Leo often have charisma and a strong presence.

The Sun, as the ruler of this sign, radiates warmth and promotes growth and creativity. Expressing drama and entertainment, we can also see actors and directors with planets in Leo.

Leo's may need to watch for their tendency towards self-centeredness and dominance.

This is a fire sign which emphasizes action. As a fixed fire sign, Leo's can both inspire and maintain activity, which is why leadership qualities are associated with this sign. Leo can direct and express activity in dynamic ways.
