Leo, you're the children and the leaders of the zodiac. Filled with creative energy and driven to express yourself, you're basically, happy energetic people.  You love to demonstrate your creativity and enjoy being the center of attention. On your good side, you're filled with optimism, creativity, courage, playfulness, confidence and a loving, sensitive attitude. On the dark side, you're vain, boastful, arrogant, dictatorial, extravagant, intolerant, pompous, overbearing, a show-off and the too-trusting fool.

Your desire to be superior, in the limelight, the recognized leader drives you. You need to be recognized as a leader at work, while your mate must be your biggest fan. Respect is very important to you. You're happiest in creative ventures, which are filled with excitement and action.                                                                                           

You excel in all the creative arts from acting to debate. Being a teacher, puppet master, theatre owner or coach can satiate your love of children. You're a natural actor, totally at home in the limelight and too often you're the ham. The limelight can include: politician, monarch, dictator, nightclub owner, entertainer, circus performer, public relations expert, director or producer. Your creative juices also flow in writing the material from poetry to screenplays and in making anything that shines from goldsmith to costume designer. Lastly your love of money and risk taking is fulfilled as a gambler or stockbroker.
