It’s Leo season, hear us roar!

Leos, symbolized of course by the majestic beast that is a lion, are born between July 23 and August 22. A Leo is a sign of sun and fire, which makes sense since summer is hot hot hot.

Leos also have a reputation for being… fiery. While any true Leo is proud of their roar, we know that all of the classic Leo characteristics do have their downsides. But, as Leos, you won’t find us shying away from our loud personalities.

Just look how amazing celebrity Leos are: Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, Daniel Radcliffe, Sandra Bullock, and of course Leo himself, Leonardo Dicaprio. You can bet none of them hate their lives in the spotlight.

Your astrological sign can symbolize many things: your values, personality traits, work style, romantic life, etc.. But what are the traits that make up Leos in particular? All of these wonderful things…and their not so wonderful flip sides. Even Leos can’t be loved all of the time.
