Lustrous Leo

Hello Wrappers!

Well, we’ve made it to the twelfth and final instalment of our zodiac monthly series! We are ending this on a good note with the 5th sign in the zodiac calendar, LEO!  This blog will be all about our lovely lionhearted wrappers, so, if you were born between July 23rd and August 22nd, this one’s for you!!! Happy, happy Birthday to all of you Lions out there! Hope you enjoy!

Zodiac Symbol: Lion

Zodiac Element: Fire

Ruling Planet: Sun

Power Color(s): Gold

Birth Gem: Peridot

Lions are majestic creatures but also furiously dangerous when provoked. These beautiful beasts are both fearless and confident which is no wonder the Leo constellation is represented by the mighty mammal. A lion symbolizes courage, protection, pride, authority, and wisdom.

The mythical lion represented by your constellation is the Nemean Lion from good ole Greek Mythology. I’m sure most of you have heard of Hercules, right? Well, The Nemean Lion was the very 1st of Hercules 12 labors. This fearsome beast terrorized the land, killing all who ventured near it. Not only was it more fierce, larger and stronger than other lions, but it also had the added advantage of possessing a skin that was impenetrable to metal, stone, and wood. Since Hercules could not kill the mighty lion with any weapon, he wrestled it with his bare hands and eventually strangled the animal to death. After seeing the unique qualities of the pelt, Hercules removed it and wore it as a cloak for protection. The Nemean Lion was then placed in the sky as a reminder of Hercules’ heroism and bravery. While the Nemean Lion is clearly the evil in this story, it also showcases the lion’s strength, cunning, and persistence. All traits that Leos tend to possess and use often to achieve great things for themselves and the people around them.

Just as the Lion, your element has many positive attributes with some negative dynamics involved as well. When you think of “fire,” what comes to mind? Fire signs tend to be passionate, dynamic, and temperamental…not unlike fire itself! Even the word “fiery” is used to describe volatile yet enthusiastic folks. Fire can keep you warm, or it can do great destruction. As a fixed fire sign that falls in the middle of summer, Leos tend to have a good balance of passion, bravery, and primal creativity. You can thank the Fire element for your Charismatic, self- assured, optimistic leadership skills but your reputation as being aggressive and overpowering can be accredited to that as well. So, be cautious Leos…when you feel your fuse burning short, try to take a step back and channel all those wonderful traits you’ve been gifted instead.

And, to stick to the fiery theme, you might be surprised to learn that the Sun rules you, Leo. While not a planet, I feel it’s very befitting that the brightest star rules one of the brightest signs. It makes sense that your planetary ruler requires the occasional pair of shades, because so do you! Your exuberance, your kindness, your seemingly never-ending supply of energy…it’s all due to the sun’s influence. Because you’re ruled by the heavenly body responsible for life on earth, you gain a sense of self-importance that is very unique. In astrology, the sun represents the self, which is why your sun sign indicates your outward personality and the lens through which you see the world. Likewise, Leos are energetic signs that are all about self- expression. Leos are also associated with childlike wonder and artistry, much like the sun symbolizes vitality and life itself. Think of the sun as the ego illuminating the darkness of the subconscious, bringing your needs and motivations to light, it is the same for Leos. It explains why you are often said to have main character energy, viewing the world as revolving around you rather than the collective. It may sound like a negative but I promise, it’s not…it’s just an explanation as to why you feel so comfortable being the center of attention…it’s what makes you a natural born leader.

Now that your ruling planet, the Sun, resides in the lovely Leo Constellation, it’s your season to shine my lion friends! The new moon in your sign on July 28th can be a fresh start or the perfect time to start something new. You will be instigated to have fun and shine your light on the world. However, as you strive to show your talents, you may sense that there is something preventing you from fully expressing yourself. A total of SEVEN planetary bodies are retrograde, trying to pull you toward the past. You can only push passed this by getting closure to whatever ails you. You will be given exactly that, an opportunity to cut ties to the past on August 11th’s full moon. While something or someone might try to drag you back, if you can envision a new future in your mind, you can manifest it.

Gold is without a doubt Leo’s most powerful color. As mentioned above Leos are powerful, courageous, and majestic. There is no other color than gold to communicate these strong energies. But gold also points to other aspects of the Leo personality as well, such as optimism and generosity. Wearing your power color not only brings about attention, but it will make you feel like the royalty you are! Pop on your favorite gold ring or bracelet, or even a mani with one of Karma Nail Wraps gold wraps, and you can keep those positive vibes percolating whenever you need the boost.
