When The Sun Shines On Leo
by: Sedona AstroKid

The Sun in Leo gives you a masterful nature with a large measure of self-control, a keen sense of honor and a never-failing integrity.

You aspire to rule others but would scorn to take a mean advantage or to do anything to others that would not be in strict accord with the golden rule; the affections are deep and lasting.

People with the Sun in Leo are staunch defenders of those they love, but equally strong in their aversions.

Leo is the sign which rules the heart. Whatever people with the Sun in Leo do is done with a concentration of purpose which compels success. You make true and lasting friendships but if one must have an enemy, a suntanned Leo will prove more honorable and magnanimous than any other.

Leo and Confidence

Leo are well know as yes strong muscular bright faithful leaders.

But did you know that Leo's also got hearts SOOO BIG that there's a possibility they can change the most cruelest meanest demons into holy graced angels with only using one beautiful powerful gifted gift they were ever blessed with... their voice.

It's so simple and amazing at the same time and yes of course it takes long time to try to change someone but with an born leader like Leo as in myself it takes one time period.
