Leo (July 23 – August 22) is the fifth sign of the zodiac, represented by the Lion. It is a Fixed Fire sign ruled by the Sun. Those born under this sign are typically warm, charismatic, hard-working personalities. They are driven towards leadership and thrive on being in charge; no one works being the “center of attention” better than the Lion. However, these big personalities must avoid being too controlling, as they may come off as vain or egotistical. In the end, these proud folk can be depended on as standout defenders and leaders among the zodiac.
We recommend these crystals for those born under Leo, as well as to all people during this sign’s dates:
