Leo    - 23. July - 23. August


Eratosthenes and Hyginus both affirm that the lion was placed in the sky because it is the king of beasts. Mythologically speaking, this is reputed to be the lion of Nemea, slain by Heracles as the first of his 12 labours.
The lion lived in a cave with two mouths, emerging to carry off the local inhabitants, who were becoming scarce.

The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo. Of course the Sun is not really a planet but is the centre of our solar system.

They are warm, bright and self-motivated, and they want to make an impression in everything they do either their work, their love, life or social life.
