So You Are A Leo Rising?
You seek to appear dignified and self-confident. However, being so determined to express yourself whenever you see fit, you sometimes enter into and dominate situations without being invited. Despite the appearance that you are strong and unaffected by criticism, underneath, you are actually quite moody and emotionally vulnerable. Rejection and rebuffs cut you to the quick, but your pride will not allow you to reveal this.
You enjoy creating an image of altruism and living in luxury is one of your aims. You need to be the king of your castle with all the trappings that go with your ‘royal’ status.
You will express your ideas gracefully and be friendly and outwardly generous towards brothers, sisters, friends, and neighbors. You choose friends who are intelligent and ingenious and whose ideas can help you achieve what you desire.
Within your partnerships, you have one law for yourself and one for your partner. You recognize the need for your own freedom, but have difficulty in according to the same freedoms as your partner. You have an almost compulsive need to know what your loved ones are ‘up to’ at all times.
You feel that a high standard of living is important – and yours by rights. This drives and motivates you to earn money, and anyone who scoffs at your endeavors will be given short shrift. When you work, you work hard in an organized way. When you play – it is the same!
Home is your ‘den’, where you can be the undisputed king. It is in your nature to do a lot of ‘growling’ around your family, but feel that the privilege to ‘growl’ is confined to yourself. Should an outsider step on the toes of any member of your family, they would soon wish they hadn’t when you are around. You feel it is important to provide the best for your children, even to the extent of spoiling them.
Home is also the ideal place for spiritual contemplation and soul searching, as there you are able to find the seclusion and the privacy to be who you are.
