Is my star sign a true reflection of me?!



This post was inspired by Thesecretblogofa30yearold, thank you 

I actually did used to be really into astrology a few years ago, so I knew the traits that were normally associated with my sign and the way they are described on this site, they fit me fairly well. Normally though many sites have Leo as being a huge egomaniac and that’s just not me. And I’m not a lover of the limelight. They say many Leo’s crave the stage and I’m more of the I’d get my recognition behind the scenes kind of girl. I am not the showy type.

More Astrology Traits and Personality of Leo

Charismatic and Stylish:
Love triumphs over all for this sign, which is ruled by the heart and operates from this dimension too. Leo’s are born fortunate. Charismatic and positive-thinking they attract not only an abundance of friends and opportunities, but manage to survive life’s stormy times with style and good humour. Their ruling planet is the Sun, and this is often reflected in their sunny and happy nature.
🌞 While I am heart-centric and I am very much a survivor, I actually don’t attract friends very easily. I think a lot of that has to do with my shy/reserved nature when I first meet people mixed with my nervous/awkward vibe when I first meet someone. I’m also not much of a talker and you add that to my resting b*tch face and I guess I may appear un-interested or un-approachable. But get past those first awkward meetings and I’m a dedicated and loyal friend with a warm heart and a giving loving nature.
Loyal and Devoted:
Once a Lion is committed to a relationship, they are totally devoted and faithful. Should their heart or trust be broken they never forgive or forget. When a relationship breaks down (even a long standing one) they can disappear into the sunset without a backward look. Leos can cut ties, and leave others heartbroken, but usually there is a good reason why they have broken a tryst. For a Leo, when a relationship is over, really over, it is over for good.
🌞 This is SPOT ON, nothing more to say 😉
Soul evolution of Leo:
There are three levels of soul-evolution of the Leos. The highest is represented by the Sphinx; wise beyond their years and great teachers to others. The second is the Lion, King of the Jungle, ruled by ego but always protective and sustaining of those they love. The last is the Lion Cub, immature and undeveloped, frightened by anything new. These Leos cling to others (in the mode of the child not wanting to leave its mother’s side).) They can’t bear to be alone.
🌞 This is SPOT ON, nothing more to say 😉
Proud and Born to Lead:
No matter what level they have attained, all Leos are trendsetters, leaders and adventurers. They are idealistsic, honest and direct, and will work long and hard to achieve their goals.
Their weakness is their pride. This is one sign where the saying “flattery will get you everything” applies, they thrive on admiration from others, but be warned criticism will slam the relationship door right in your face.
🌞 Kind of mixed here. I am good at leadership but not quick to take up the call to it. I do have an adventurous spirit and a deep sense of wanderlust. Pride is my weakness, but not in the typical definition of pride. It’s more anxiety over embarrassment in failure. I don’t have a big ego. And I get uncomfortable with flattery and may even wonder why you are giving me any kind of flattery, it makes me suspicious lol. Criticism is a HUGE weakness for me, because of that sense of embarrassment. I tend to want to be perfect. Not for perfections sake, and not for myself or for show. But in the desperate want to not disappoint anyone. 

Here’s Why You’re Actually Unhappy With Your Life, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


This was spot ON for me! Finding my sense of self has been a struggle for me most of my life. I’ve been finally finding my true sense of self and direction I want to go in and my mood has elevated x 1000. And I do always need to keep evolving and growing or I get very stuck until I’m inspired again. This is one reason why I believe so strongly in personal development. Trying new things, traveling and expanding my horizons, and continuing to dream big and evolve keep life happy and vibrant for me. I don’t do well with complacency or stringent routine. I could NEVER work a 9 to 5 desk job. When I’ve been in any job remotely similar I get depressed and find zero sense of achievement or job satisfaction.  I love adventuring, exploring, learning and new ideas!


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You haven’t developed your sense of self.

Leos are happiest when they know themselves. This is tricky, however, because of course your sense of self has to evolve as you do – your idea of who you are must keep evolving, otherwise you’ll become stuck and complacent.
