2017 Yearly Leo Horoscope
The most important thing for you to keep in mind as you live out the days of the first half of 2017, Leo, is that you may not have a clear picture of what you’re dealing with or, in fact, the direction in which you’re going until the second half of the year.
That may sound like you’re in for serious frustration. But if, instead, you view this as a period of exploration, then what you do, experience and learn will not only benefit you enormously, you’ll enjoy this period. You’ll take pleasure in what you encounter, who you meet and what you learn.
With Saturn, the planet of focus, achievement and accomplishment, positioned in your sign all year, you’re in a period of intense personal growth and reflection. While some say that Saturn is about restriction, that’s not all. The fact is, it’s all about depth. The variety of focus it brings allows an individual to develop in ways far beyond what takes place during other cycles. And because Saturn’s cycle is 29 years, once it departs your sign, in mid-2007, it won’t be back for a very long time. Consequently, it’s in your best interests to concentrate on learning from the opportunities it gives you, even if you don’t always understand the significance of the lessons it’s bringing your way. By mid-year you’re likely to understand why these are in your life, and you might even feel excited about the developments they’re bringing with them.
Add to this the fact that Jupiter, the planet of growth and opportunity, is in the part of your chart that has to do with the structure of your life, remaining there until the end of November, and it’s clear that this process of reflection has not only to do with you, and how you feel about yourself and your activities. It also involves how you conduct your life, family matters, and perhaps even property issues.
Finally, with Neptune, the planet of vision, accenting close relationships, it would seem that changes in the lives of others could also influence yours. The trick is to notice what’s going on around you, to respond to developments – both those you’re expecting and those that you hadn’t planned – yet to suspend judgement until the all-important Leo new moon, on 25 July. That, combined with your ruler, the Sun’s, meeting with Saturn, only a short time later, on 7 August, marks a turning point in your year, and perhaps, in your life.
Then, on 31 August, Saturn forms a rare and powerful aspect to the visionary Neptune, and what you’ve learned during the year’s first half will enable you to make decisions. Some will involve what you do during the remaining year of Saturn’s presence in your sign, during the last half of 2017 and the first half of 2007. If you try to make these decisions beforehand, they’d be premature. You wouldn’t know enough. But if you can manage to wait, by the end of August both life’s experiences and what you’ve learned during the first half of the year will mean that you’re well equipped to make wise decisions.
As a Leo, one of your greatest strengths is your ability to think and move swiftly. Yet, if you make decisions too swiftly during the first half of the year, you’ll only regret it. Instead, concentrate on learning what you can from life, on enjoying what there is to enjoy and on benefiting from the experiences and journeys on which Saturn takes you, and learning from the challenges it brings your way.
While you may not have chosen these yourself, they will broaden your world. Those that arrive as challenges may not be welcome at the time. But they, too, will deepen your understanding, will enable you to grow in compassion and perhaps even will help you to enjoy what life offers you all the more.
As a Leo, you demand a great deal of life, sometimes missing what you have in the here and now. The period during which Saturn is in your sign, and the year of 2017, therefore, will offer you a kind of wisdom and a kind of understanding of life that might not otherwise have been available to you and will benefit you, not only during 2017, but also during the years to come.
Leo Horoscope- The Lion
July 24th to August 23rd
Horoscope Leo the Lion, the fifth sign of the zodiac and the second of the fire signs, is ruled by the Fifth House. The Fifth House is the house of Romance, Love, Marriage and Creativity. This House symbolizes fun and games and tells us how we relate to children. Leo is symbolized by the mighty Lion.
In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, it tells of the story between two young lovers, Pyramus and Thisbe, who are forbidden to marry one another because of their families objections. They talk through a crack in the wall that separates their homes and make plans to meet outside the city beside a mulberry tree with white berries.
Pyramus was not there when Thisbe arrives and she is frightened by a Lion who is still bloody from a kill it made. Thisbe ran off but her veil fell in front of the Lion. When Pyramus arrives he sees the torn and bloody veil and assumes the Lion has killed Thisbe. Devastated, he takes his sword out and kills himself just as Thisbe comes running up to him. She threw herself over Pyramus and then takes his sword where she kills herself too. Their blood turned the white mulberries red, forever changing the color of them.
In Greek mythology, the Nemean Lion was a beast who had been roaming the countryside killing anything that got in its way. The Nemean Lion was also related to the infamous Sphinx that Oedipus encountered. The creature had terrorized the countryside for years and all weapons were useless against it.
Hera sent Hercules to kill the beast even though she hated him as an illegitimate son of Zeus. Hercules defeated the Nemean Lion and made a cloak and helmet from its hide. Zeus decided to honor this fight and put the fearsome Lion in the night sky. Leo is a Fixed sign which means they are courageous, determined, and with enough perseverance to see things through to their finish.
Leo Traits and Leo Personality
They are passionate and enjoy being the center of attention and expect people to naturally notice and approach them. If they do not get the attention they feel they deserve, they can be very hypersensitive and agitated.
Leos were born to rule and feel their friends and family are their loyal subjects. They are strong willed, dominant, independent and the most extroverted of all the zodiacal signs. Like the golden rays the Sun gives off to the Leo they have the allure, charm, and self confidence, they are at their best in positions of leadership. There is nothing complicated about the Leo with their altruistic, loving and caring manner. They do not abuse power and feel it is their right to reign over the people.
If Leos are suspicious and jealous of someone, sometimes they are not above showing arrogance, disdainful superiority, and an intolerance of those they feel are below them, but this usually quite rare for them.
Leos love life; they love to have fun; they love music, the theater, drama and entertaining. With their flair for the dramatic many Leos become stars of the stage and screen. Leos do not like being bossed around preferring to be in the position of authority and making the decisions, however, they would rather leave the minor details to others. They are excellent supervisors and managers and do things on a grand scale.
Leos love to give gifts to friends and family for the sheer joy of watching what pleasure it brings. They are very generous and if not careful can fall into debt. They want to attain wealth just so they can help others. They are not selfish or penurious because to them money is something that should bring pleasure and happiness.
In their relationships Leos are sincere, loyal, honest, and are very trusting. They are outgoing and outspoken and hold high moral standards and expect others to be the same. For the ones they love they will do everything for them but if let them down they become extremely disappointed and disillusioned. Their sexual drive is intense and their attraction to the opposite sex so strong they could become libertine and licentious yet they are ardent and fervent towards the ones they love.
They will most often act as the protector of underlings because of their kind and caring attitude.

Leo Birthstone / August Birthstone
Leo Sun will also enjoy being in the spotlight, and holding the attention of others. They identify with royalty and nobility, and as a result can be quite chivalrous and charming. There is a great deal of courage with this placement. Those born under Sun in Leo will have the courage to stand up for what the feel is right; never bending an ounce to status quo expectations. They also tend to be quite creative in whatever interests them, whether it is artistic or practical.
The fire in Leo is fixed, burning steadily throughout their lives. As long as someone is loyal to them, they make loyal partners and friends as well as great parents. However, if you insult the ego of the Leo Sun, hurt their mighty pride, you will no longer be in their graces. While a Leo Sun will stick with a partnership if her or she feels a sense of duty to it, if unhappy they will make sure everyone is unhappy with them. If you undermine the Leo Sun’s needs for self-confidence, they will have no use for you. However, if you disagree with Leo yet still take their pride into consideration without insult, you will be respected and have their attention, possibly even sway them.
The tough part of Leo Sun is that some folks become dogmatic, feeling that only their way is best. In a hard placement, it can show a need for attention, so much that they count on others to feed their ego. While Leo integrity cannot be compromised, with a rough upbringing, it can be skewed in a direction that is not conducive to their self-betterment. Leo Suns also have a tendency to get stuck in a rut of their own beliefs or habits and acting very stubbornly to those who would only like to help them improve.
