Challenge Question: What’s your zodiac sign?  Do you fit the description? 

My birthday is August 20th I’m a Leo.


Leo Characteristics and Profile
(July 23 – August 22)

The Lion is considered the king of the jungle, and likewise you Leos have an air of royalty about you. Some Leos even have hair resembling the thick mane of the Lion. But Lions are more than roar, for they are truly magnificent beasts. The Lioness proudly cares for the young, hunts and takes care of survival with relentless intent and ferocity, when needed.

Verdict on that one: I have a strange thing with my hair. It’s kind of my security blanket. It’s always been long. I panic when I cut it! I guess that much is correct. I do have great focus if the task at hand calls for it.

Leo are warm of spirit, eager for action and are driven by a desire to be loved for what you bring to others. Leo are a magnanimous leader and a faithful servant. Once scorned in love, however, Leo will withdraw your affections and the light, once brilliant, can go cold.

My verdict for this: I am extremely loyal to my friends and family. And unfortunately, yes, I am known to be a bit stubborn when my husband and I disagree.

Leo motto might be “What you see is what you get.” You tend to live your live straightforwardly and with a flair for drama. In fact, many Leos are attracted to the theater, the performing arts and public relations, for you truly understand the importance of putting on a good presentation.

My verdict: My life is an open book (obviously). I try to be as straight forward & concise as I can be. I do try to deliver this as kindly as I can though. Just because I keep it real, doesn’t mean I have to be rude, ya know?

Element: Fire

Fire signs are naturally warm. A fire gives light and heat, but it doesn’t get depleted as others feed on its warmth. One candle can bring light to a room and it won’t burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one. Fire doesn’t plan it next move; it isn’t logical. It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought. For this reason fire signs can successfully rely on their intuition and survival instincts.

My verdict: I do things based on my gut feelings or my instincts. I’ll do something if it feels right. I do like to think of myself as being “warm-natured”

The fire of Leo is brilliant and intense. It’s like the summer Sun that relentlessly shows up every day and whose heat continues to build over a period of time.

My verdict: Sometimes I am a bit intense

Fifth House: Children

The Fifth House is directly related to children, but it is also associated with any type of childlike activity. Even grown-ups need to play and this is a function of the Fifth House. In fact, all self-expression and creativity comes from this sector. Additionally, this is the House of Romantic Love. Truly, the Fifth House could be called the House of Enjoyment.

My verdict: I work with children & the arts! Plus, like I’ve said before, I am a kid trapped in an adults body! If you know me, this one is most true.

Key Planet: Sun

The Sun is the undisputed King of our little planetary system. He is always in the center. Without his light, there would be no life here on earth. Although the Sun is 93 million miles distant, its warmth is the basis for all energy on Earth. Astrologically, the Sun represents our will. It’s like the fuel that fires each of our individual furnaces and gives us cause to live. As the key planet of Leo, the Sun is the symbol of the self and from it stems all individuality and creativity.

My verdict: I am quite stubborn, but if you look at that positively, I am also really strong-willed.

Your Biggest Strength: Your playful and loving nature

My verdict: I am a big kid & happy-go-lucky

Your Potential Weakness: Need for approval can become too important

My verdict: I do try to please everyone. As I’ve gotten older, I’m learning to accept that you can’t please them all. I’ve been trying to make things okay with me with as much honesty and integrity as I can. If that’s not enough for people, tough tiddly winks 😉

All in all, I am definitely all Leo.
