Our next fire sign is the fixed sign of Leo! Latin for Lion, Leo is the queen/king of the jungle AND as represented by the sun, they are the center of their own universes. They are their own hype man, but being vivacious and theatrical, they are just as much your hype man as they are their own! 

Maybe they like to start drama when they're bored, but honestly, who doesn't want to see what happens? They may be "a bit much" sometimes, but their generosity and loyalty make them a rock solid friend, as is in their nature as fixed sign. After all, the sun never goes retrograde, so even as in-your-face as they might be, their stability is to be admired. 

Leos rule the heart and their tarot card is "Strength". The constellation Leo is associated with the mythological Nemean lion, a vicious monster in Greek mythology that lived at Nemea. Its golden fur was impervious to attack, so it could not be killed with mortals' weapons. Basically, don't turn your attacks towards Leos unless you want to be the one bleeding. 

Leo rules the skies from July 23-August 22. They're the peak of the heat of summer. Aquarius is their sister sign, so where as Aquarius would typically turn inward and prefer to be behind the scenes, Leo is very much the public face and ready to bring the house down. 

Our Leo yarn is a battle of golds, yellow, oranges. What else would you expect?
