LEO-(The Lion) is the fifth sign of the tropical zodiac. Leo is a creative, sociable and dramatic sign, which loves to be the center of a circle of admirers. The key phrase for Leo is "I will". This sign represents majesty, power and dignity. When their egos are turned inward, Leos become self-centered and tyrannical. Leos express pride in every movement, as long as they are in control or in positions of responsibility, their self-confidence is high. Leos whose desires for power and authority remain unfulfilled may show laziness, indolence and inconstancy.

Leo's are bold & courageous and even stubborn at times, when plans are not of their own way. They are also arrogant and willful at times, expecting the limelight and the admiration of others. Their confident attitude may appear smug to others. Their hairs are in abundance as in a lion's mane with the chin firm and purposeful. Leo is usually not a tall sign, but very sturdy with an even gait.
The Sun, supreme ruler of the human ego, rules Leo. Its influence gives Leos their true love of life, love through marriage and its pleasures. They are strongly attracted to the opposite sex. It is easy for pleasure-loving Leos like rich food and love going to restaurants and as a result gain weight, especially around the girth.
