Leos are well-known for being kind and helpful – if someone is having problems with a project or other issue, they know they can turn to you. Your sign is ruled by the Sun, a source of infinite energy, so you’re always on the go and ready to spread those positive vibes around. You’re also straightforward and will speak up if something isn’t working out, but if a project is proving challenging, you don’t allow yourself to be put off.
Occasionally, this optimism can tip over into being headstrong however, and you may find it difficult to admit that a make isn’t working out rather than try a different approach. You like to be in control of situations and expect everyone to follow your lead, no matter what, while your impatience may lead you to rush into a project and end up making mistakes. Take your time, don’t be afraid to ask for help, and if things are getting on top of you, take a break and enjoy one of the treats below, chosen especially for you.
Famous Leos: J.K. Rowling, Helen Mirren, Martha Stewart, Kate Bush, Sarah Brightman, Michelle Yeoh
