This is the sign belonging to those who were born between July 23 and August 21. This sign is linked to Fire, the celestial body of which is the Sun and the characteristic colors of which are red and yellow.
The Leo astral sign has self-confidence as its prominent characteristic
But these judgments are often unjust because, although they usually have high self-esteem, Leo people can be generous, extremely honest and faithful as far as friendship is concerned.
Leo people’s qualities
Even though they are suspected to be excessively proud, Leo people do possess the strength of character the “head of a clan”, a leader requires. They are borne by their iron will, which is coupled with an often surprising energy. In astrology, those born under the Leo sign indeed seem to have nearly inexhaustible resources, no matter their age.
What does feed their dynamism? Probably their great ambition as well as the pleasure they derive from fulfilling high goals, from “building their own empire” both in the material and in the social or relational sense.
It is a need for action and commitment of vital force that is being expressed every day. All of this makes the people of this astral sign the object of admiration but also of the jealousy of some.
Shortcomings of the Leo zodiac sign
It must be admitted that the main shortcoming of people belonging to this sign stems from their oversized ego. It seems like they chase after recognition their whole life long as if it were their oxygen.
They do not like to be criticized because their self-esteem does not stand being hurt. When the time comes to criticizing them, it is better to handle them with kid gloves, otherwise Leo people may well show their claws…
As far as love is concerned, people under the Leo astrological sign rarely prove to be flexible. They rather show themselves to be quite uncompromising as to the mistakes their partner might commit.
