The Sun Rules Leo,..
Leo – Simha “lion” Rasi -
“The Lion, ruled by the Sun, is Sattva, four-footed, a Kshatriya, living in woods, front rising, large limbed, voilet, eastern and vigorous during day.”
Fire - Leo seeks to follow their inspirations and intuition
Fixed - Leo will prefer perfecting the things they have started rather than starting new things or being flexible and open to the many possibilities.
Male - Leo is a positively Charged Sign – given to action and external life
The Sun is lord of Leo as fire expressed in a fixed form. It is through the sign of Leo that each chart is illumined by the mighty Sun. The ability to sacrifice the lower forms of ego to the higher forms of Self and truth are being learned when the Soul enters Leo. Through generosity and humility the inherently magnanimous nature of the Sun is learning to emerge. This is the Sun that shares its rays with all of creation. The fixed quality of fire allows for the path of Leos to be illumined in a steadfast and inspirational way. Leo is of Sattwic nature; able to be inspired toward the things that are uplifting and that bring truth to themselves and others. The natural power and charisma of the Sun allows the native to attract what they need to blaze a trail through life and be recognized for it. As being the source of all light in the chart the Leo native is innately aware of their own power and the power of others and may be tempted to turn others into satellites, living to be surrounded by weaker personalities who merely reflect back a lower Self image. But as long as the Leo functions merely to feel the lower personality, the Sun may make them a petty tyrant and one whose large appearance will likely express the largest of egos. When the Leo remembers the highest Sun blazing forth within, their naturally generous nature provides the warming and uplifting light, which allows all to shine in their presence.
