HOROSCOPE

The Sun is the planetary ruler of your sign, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive Jupiter’s planetary influence. The Sun’s power manifests in your willpower, creativity and individuality. Jupiter’s influence is reflected in your unique optimism, idealism and generosity. Your planetary combination makes you the most optimistic of all the Leo Decans. Your love for life is unmatched and you greatly enjoy any chance to experience a new place or new people. Though tempting, take care not to lose your positive outlook, as it will be rewarded.
