It looks as impressive in the sky as lions like to be. A star cluster forms the lion’s head with an imposing mane. Many lions actually have such a lion’s mane, especially those with the ascendant lion. The lion has had a special meaning from the beginning. In ancient Egypt, goddesses have been depicted lion-headed, and the enigmatic sphinx is located at the dice next to the pyramids.
The sun associated with the lion is the central star of our universe. This also underlines the importance of the lion. Also in our religions the sun has a special meaning.

Attention, commanding or even humiliating can not be the star sign Leo! Who tries, before he bares his teeth.
Lions have power. They are cheerful and need their freedom. The weak and helpless are happy to protect them. However, every lion has to be careful that he gathers contemporaries of equal rank with whom he can compete. That’s good for his ego.

Weaknesses of the lion:
Spotlight, applause and admiration
The limelight attracts the lion irresistibly. A lion yearns for applause and admiration. With a proud attitude and unwavering self-confidence, the lion wants to conquer its own empire. Of course, he knows exactly how to best use his radiant smile and his power of attraction. Its sunny nature makes it popular and the center of many a society. He attaches great importance to status symbols and luxury, because he likes to underline his glowing image and thus wants to impress his fellow human beings.
Magnanimous and justice-loving
If he gets his vanity under control and focuses on the essential, he can do great things. The proud lion, always a symbol of courage, strength and superiority, does not decorate so many coats of arms of large families in vain. The typical lion will always try to get to the top. But that does not make him unpopular with others, because he usually performs with great generosity and has a strong sense of justice. However, he has to be careful that he does not get a bit arrogant from time to time.
He gladly takes responsibility

Courageous and fearless in dangerous situations
The lion is ruled by the sun and, like them, it radiates and spreads a certain amount of warmth. Generous and as the protector of the weak, he always has to be careful not to be exploited. As comfortable as he likes to be sometimes, so courageously and fearlessly can he venture into dangerous situations when he opposes oppression and vulgarity. Forgetting his royal distance, he lets the others feel his claws until his sovereignty is restored.
