This is the heart of the Grand Man or Microcosm. It is a masculine, commanding, fixed, choleric, fiery,
changeable, northern sign of the Zodiac, the middle point of the magnet of the Fire Triplicity. It governs the
heart and blood of life, the higher attributes being belief and self-control.
The Sun enters the sign Leo on or about the 23rd of July
each year, and departs from the sign on or about the 22nd of August. It takes six days for The Sun to come into
full touch and action with the sign. Therefore, a person born between the dates of the 23rd and the 29th of July
would not receive the full central results of the signs individuality, as this person would be born on the edge of
the Zodiac, which is known as "The Cusp." Its impulses partake of the sign The Sun has
just passed through and out from. The native thus born will partake much of the attributes of the sign of the
Zodiac, wherein The Moon was located at the time of
The people born under this sign are kind-hearted, generous, sympathetic, and magnetic. They make good nurses
when in full sympathy with the patient. They are emotional, very intuitive, and are generally able by means of this
power to escape the consequences of their actions. Leo people are fine conversationalists, excelling in repartee,
and are the best of storytellers. They always make a point, and always see the point.
When the true individuality of Leo holds sway, these people have a noble ideal, with a loyal love, confident,
pure, and abundant. Having minds of the practical, philosophical, and spiritual combined, a trinity, they radiate a

audiences. In fact, the truly awakened Leo man and Leo woman are invincible if they will learn the pathway of
Leo people have a great love for their own, and will not yield to advice or dictation in the management of
their children. Leo women who have been looked upon as angels in the neighborhood will sometimes show an
astonishing ferocity if their children are hurt or reproved. A fault found with them, a complaint made by a teacher
or a friend, can arouse these mothers to the highest pitch of passionate excitement. The motto of the Leo woman is
"Love me, love my dog."
The natural intuition of these people is very great, and this talent is sometimes so constantly exercised that
it can lead to deep-seated aversion and prejudice. They have been right in their estimates of people six times out
of ten, therefore they must be right ten times out of ten. Argument is of no use under such conditions. In fact,
it is well to let the Leo person enjoy his opinions without interference. The balance of happiness for the rest of
the family is usually to be found in that method.
Those born under this sign are in some respects near of kin to those who come under the head of the same
Leo people would rather plan than work, and they are by no means fond of details. They are sometimes lazy, and,
like the cat, are fond of basking in The Sun and dozing in the chimney corner. They are fond of all creature and
home comforts. The Leo male usually knows where the best markets are to be found, and have a real genius in
catering for the table. The Leo female has the same talent in selecting, and among them are found our most
