HOROSCOPE

The Sun is the planetary ruler of your sign, but as you are born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Jupiter. The Sun’s influence can be witnessed in your individualism, willpower and creativity, while Jupiter’s power manifests in your great generosity and optimism. Your unique combination of planetary influence makes you far more optimistic than any of the other Leo Decans. You appreciate life and take care to learn from new people and environments. Continue to embrace your optimism, as you will be surprised how much good fortune will come your way because of it.
