The Sun enters the Zodiac sign Leo at July 23, 2017 and leaves it on August 23, 2017. Leo is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Leo. In astrology, Leo is considered to be a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and is one of four fixed signs ruled by the Sun. Individuals born when the Sun is in this sign are considered Leo individuals.
The people under this sign are considered by most modern astrologers as natural leaders. They are also considered as outgoing, proud, warm-hearted, loyal, and from their wish to excel in all they do. Leo personalities are known to love those they are close with and they wish to protect and defend all those that need it. They are people that enjoy flattery and attention from others but when not loved or when they are not reciprocated they become depressed, self-pitying and self-destructive.
Individuals in this sign need love and recognition from others to boost their ego and they demand it like something for granted. People born under this sign are also invariably materialistic, they set a great value to material boons and strive to financial success. They are known to have plenty of worshippers but also many hidden enemies and they are normally recognized by their self-absorbed personality and their big ego.
The natives of Leo are generally considered to be compatible with the natives of other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius, and to a lesser extent with the natives of the air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. However, compatibility based on sun-sign alone is considered to be only a very general guideline. The branch of astrology dealing with interpersonal relationships is called Synastry. In this, astrologers analyse the horoscopes of both parties being considered with particular reference to the positions of the Sun and Moon, and Venus and Mars. (With material from: Wikipedia)
