She’s mad, but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire.” ― Charles Bukowski (Leo Sun)
Leo is a fire sign. Just like the colors of fire, these people can pull off bright and daring colors like orange, yellow and red that most people would avoid! They have a deep fire burning inside them and expressing their inner energies with colors that symbolize warmth and passion is the best way to go through life! They possess massive amounts of energy and ambition and should not shy away from attracting attention with their bright colors!
Leos are some of the most loving people you will ever meet and being around them could bring a similar feeling to the one you get when sitting next to a fire. Just like a fire needs to be fed to keep burning, Leo’s love and passion also require constant attention and they require just as much love in return. When you stop feeding Leo’s fire of passion, it will die. Due to this, they are usually quite extroverted and rely on the energy of others to keep them cheerful.
Leo is ruled by the Sun, and in astrology, the sun shines its light and empowers everything it comes into contact with. The same can be said for Leo’s where they have bright, contagious energy, that energizes and moves you. The power of the Sun is very strong, and Leos will usually possess a strong character. It will be challenging to break them down, as they maintain an adequate amount of pride.
