Where Is MY Public? I Want MY Public!

Someone is walking by. However, this person is not just walking. He/she is actually strutting, letting the world know on no uncertain terms who HE/SHE is. He/she is working and commanding it to the ultimate level! As he/she is walking by, people are letting him/her pass and as he/she going on his/her merry way, everyone is looking at him/her.

Who in the world is this person they wonder? He/she is definitely not the Average Joe/Josephina walking by. He/she has star quality. He/she seems to be above the average mortals of humankind. He/she then looks at you. You are completely buoyed over by his/her utter glow. Subsequently, he/she cursorily looks you over and bid you on your way. You have just encountered a Leo.

Yes, Leos do possess that utter star quality about them. It does not matter who they are. They can be poor, middle class, and/or rich. They can be tall, slender, average height, skinny, muscular, short, and/or corpulent. They have that aura which makes people stand up and just say wow!

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac. It is a fixed fire sign. The fire component signifies that Leo natives are quite fearless and impulsive in their approach to life. They believe in taking risks and living life to the hilt. They are quite fierce and fearless in that they are not afraid to fail, believing that failure is often an integral part of being successful. They further portend that failure is a part of life.

Because they are impulsive, they find that the safe path in life is for the timid, fearful, and dull. They contend that only those who are the living dead want their lives to be safe, secure, and comfortable. They assert that in order to wildly successful and happy, one has to be bold and take even bolder risks. They also do not appreciate being restricted with inane rules and rituals. They want to live and be free.

The fixed component of Leo signifies that they can be quite resolute in obtaining what they want. Once they place their minds to an idea, a goal, and/or a person, they are not going to back down, let consequences be damned! They believe in and stand by their ideas and opinions to the very bitter end. They will stick to their ideas and opinions even if they have to go to the Pits of Hell- so be it!

Leo is ruled by the Sun. The sun is the center of the solar system. It is the giver of sunlight and thus the ultimate giver of life. Every organism whether it is plant, animal, and/or human is dependent on the sun for its sustenance. Without the energy of the sun, there would be no life on this planet.

As the sun is considered the center of the universe and the giver of life, Leo believes that he/she is the ultimate person. He/she wants to be the center of life whether it is an event, a major party, relationship, and/or any other life occurrences. A Leo is definitely not content not if he/she is not a major contributor and/or participator in life. Leos are active people and hate to be just mere spectators in life.

Of course, the lion is an animal symbol of the zodiac sun sign Leo. The lion is a majestic and magnificent animal. The Leo is nothing if not majestic. While other people merely exist, a Leo believes in and practices living life to the ultimate max! He/she intends to make a major impact in society and the world.

A Leo wants to be in the driver's seat so to speak. He/she is more comfortable in decision making positions when he/she can effectively guide and direct people as well as actively contribute his/her gifts to society. Leos are more suited to be the leaders of their purview than to be merely a follower. What fun is there in the latter, they proclaim!

Being merely ordinary is not in the Leo's vocabulary. Leos want and desire to do things in style and grandeur. They believe that the only way to go in life is first class. Well, why not? After all, they are the kings, queens, emperors, and empresses of the universe and they deserve nothing less. So it is first class or NO class for them!

It is totally de rigueur for Leos to spend money for the finest hand made suits and/or dresses, the best perfumes, and/or the best Italian made shoes. To them, presenting the right image is highly important. Furthermore the right image costs money. For Leos, having and presenting the right image is of the paramount essence. They portend that people initially judge a person by his/her appearance and when that is copacetic, then they want to know the real person. It is their reasoning that people do not want to know a person if he/she does not at first have the right personal presentation.

Besides dressing in style, Leos love to live, wine, and dine in style. Their philosophy is that one goes once in life. This means that one should never deny oneself and/or cut back economic corners so to speak. They are definitely not proponents that the best thing in life is free. No the best things in life cost money and lots of it! To paraphrase the ad for L'Oreal, they are worth every penny so why not splurge and live one's best and glorious life! Not only do some Leos want the best, they want the very best of the best! Enough said!

Leo rules the 5th house in the horoscope. The 5th house represents creativity, fun, pleasure, romance, and children. Leos are the masters of creativity. To the average Leo, life is what one makes it and too many people lead gray and uninspired lives. Leos see nothing wrong in breaking a few rules and letting loose. They portend that rules are often the antithesis of true creativity.

Leos are known to be some of the most romantic people in the zodiac. They are in love with the concept of love. To many Leos, love and relationships are everything and without love, they are nothing.

Leos are connoisseurs of pleasure. In fact, they are the original hedonist. To the average Leo, living a full life entails lots of play and pleasure as well as work. To many Leos, they want jobs/ careers which are pleasures. After all, they reason, one spends most of his/her life at work, so why shouldn't work be pleasurable and joy enhancing.

Regarding the issue of children, the average Leo is quite fond of children either his/her own, related and/or non-related. To Leo, children symbolizes pure innocence and the unencumbered joys of life. Children also teaches Leo the importance of living fully in the present and not to overstrategize and worry about things that are unimportant. Also, Leo is a big child himself/herself. Nothing suits him/her more that just to let loose and let one's inner child completely envelop him/her!

A Leo loves social events and gatherings. He/she is totally in his/her element at those affairs whether it is a simple party, a large soiree, and/or a political fundraiser. A Leo is the ultimate and true extrovert. Being with and/or surrounded by people actually make him/her shine like the magnificent star that he/she is. A ex-coworker, a Leo, loved giving large parties in her spacious apartment every weekend. She actually thrived when she was surrounded by large crowds of people.

The best thing psychologically for a Leo is to be around as many people as possible. He/she actually gets his/her energy from around people. This energy is equivalent to an elixir for him/her. If he/she is not dazzling and/or interacting with people, then he/she feels totally worthless.

Leo is also characterized by having a sunny and ever exuberant persona. No one has a more cheerful and positive personality than a Leo. Leo occurs during the period from late July to the third week of August. The period of the year is often the hottest day of the year. This period is the apex of summer. The days are lazy and many people use this period as their last chance to go on vacation, either to have a good time or just simply relax and/or max out. Leos love to be quite leisurely so to speak. Nothing suits them more that just to truly savor life experiences.

Leo rules the 5th house of the horoscope. The fifth house is the house of

Even though Leos can be quite magnanimous people, there is also a negative side to the sign. There are some Leos who just............well, entitled. They love to demonstrate ways that they are different albeit "better" than other people they encounter. It is nothing for negative Leos to use their status, whether it is socioeconomic, education, and/or job/career to assert their supposed superiority over other people.

Many negative Leos have the attitude that they are above the common travails and intricacies of life and society. They portend that the rules never apply to them, believing that they are above the rules. They have the attitude of do as I say but not to do as I do. They aptly apply the principle of the double standard i.e. what is good for them is definitely not good for others. Or the hoi polloi as these Leos would say.

While Leos love the best, the more negative Leos often resort to any means necessary to obtain the best. They are not above being golddiggers(this applies to both male and female) to live what is to be considered the life of their dreams. They only see people in terms of what they can do for them image and monetary wise. If you just a hard working Joe/Josephina with potentialities, this Leo will not give you a chance or a look- so just walk on by! These Leos want money and the good life it affords and will view any prospective relationship as a walking bank bank and/or investment portfolio.

Yes, the negative Leo can be quite a spoiled and obnoxious brat. His/her main motto in life is the everlasting and/or the neverending me. Since he/she is the be and end all to the universe, everything should revolve around his/her "wondrous" presence. This is HIS/HER world and you, my friend, are just taking up space and breathing HIS/HER air! This Leo will gladly remind you of this at every opportunity!

The Leo is an ebullient and quite fascinating person. He/she possess a stellar quality which makes others say oh my God, wow who is that fantastically hot creature! Damn! Being with a Leo is never a dry, staid and/or monotonous moment. You are on a grand, deluxe tour and it is first class all the way!

In conclusion, the Leo represents all the magnificence and warmth of a summer day. Leos are quite warm and magnanimous people. To them, life should be fun and is a party which to be to fully savored and enjoyed. Need one ask for more and/or a better companion!


LIVING LIFE TO THE MAX

Leos live life to the hilt.  Nothing is too outrageous for them.  They feel that they should live THE BEST life possible.

Hi gmwilliams,

I like your writing. This was a good hub. I'm here reading some of your hubs and I'm really enjoying so them so far.

This one caught my eye because I'm a leo, but not the negative type of Leo. You don't happen to be a Leo and an only child too do you? Just wondering because you said leo was the most magnificent sun sign. That would be something if we were both only children and leos...

Take care and I hope we can talk again soon, ErinElise

Oh no, I am the next sign on the zodiac, Virgo. That explains why I do criticiquing and analytical hubs on the same and/or similar sujbects. Virgos are so fond of analyzing people and things to death. They are the masters of analyzing things to its complete minutiae! In fact, Virgos can be called the obsessive compulsives of the zodiac!

Hello Gmwilliams

I would like to say I enjoy your work, but I admit, my own personal comment and opinion would be the writing is biased somehow. Otherwise, thank you for your contribution to Astrology, I imagine it works to the caricature of the subject enough at least on the predisposed demographic of what the signs represent, and to the contribution of the subject as a greater whole. :)

Again...Leo is the STRONGEST sign in the zodiac, in every sense of the word, not Scorpio. Leo is the only sign ruled by the Sun so as a Sun sign, that's the best and strongest placement. Leos are also the strongest physically since they're a fixed (massive determination and stamina) fire (physically active and strong) sign. And as bright and warm as they are, their dark side was just dark, cold and extremely terrifying! The ancients feared them most since they were the only sign characterized as both "bestial" (savage) and "feral" (dangerous behavior). In short, LEOS are the strongest and most dangerous sign and that's why their symbol is the mighty lion!!!
