The sun moves into Leo today.
I should probably spend a little more time discussing fashion astrology on this blog. Considering that it’s my niche, I don’t really do it enough. But I did write two books about the subject, so if you want it, you’re going to have to pay for it.
And that is a Leo sentiment if I’ve ever heard one. I believe that Leo natives are the most-generous individuals in the zodiac, but they don’t give away anything for free. Sometimes they want a simple thank you: at other times they want you to owe them something. They can deny it all they want, but they live to engender loyalty from their subjects. Don’t let their benevolence fool you.
I like Leos and I’ve had a couple of Leo best friends over the course of my life. They’re a gas to be around, but we do have fundamental differences that are difficult to reconcile. In “Star Struck Style,” I describe the relationship between Leos and Capricorns:
“I don’t want you to think that I have something against you, Leo, because I don’t – I just have an ego as big as yours. While my sign, Capricorn, is symbolized by a goat who spends its life constantly ascending to greater heights, yours is the only sign associated with an apex predator. You lions may be at the top of the food chain, yet me and my fellow goats are well beyond your reach (hence my fearlessness in your presence). We share a sense of superiority because we both feel somewhat detached from the rest of the creatures of the zodiac, as if we are looking down at them from above. And while it may be lonely at the top sometimes, neither of us would trade places with anyone else. I revel in my position as astrology’s most-condescending animal: the view is great from the top of the mountain. You, on the other hand, rejoice in the fact that you are able to maul and mangle anyone who dares to question your supremacy. You are a lion, after all. That’s what lions do.”
It makes me proud to know that I wrote that passage! That makes me believe that I’m more like a Leo than I care to admit.
Anyway, I don’t believe that there is anything wrong with Leonine pride or pride in general. Taking pride in your accomplishments is good thing. Taking pride in your appearance, however, can be a double-edged sword, especially for Leo and Taurus natives. Interestingly, Jocelyn Wildenstein has the sun, Mars and Pluto in Leo, and Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus in Taurus. Yikes!
I might explore that subject over the next few weeks, or maybe I won’t. We’ll see how I’m feeling this afternoon when the sun makes its move. Chances are, I’ll spend the entire month talking about myself.
Why change when you’re already perfect?
