HOROSCOPE

The Leo’s main planetary ruler is the Sun, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the planetary influence of Mars. Your unique combination of planetary influence makes you far more ambitious than other Leo Decans. The Sun’s influence over creativity and individualism, is met nicely with Mars’ influence over courage and assertiveness. You will push towards your desired goals with a relentless fever, as long as you remain positive and energetic. Your faith in your own abilities makes you stubborn at times, but it also makes you courageous. Embrace these qualities and you will continue on a path towards success. Avoid the dangers of anger and restlessness that are also a product of your planetary influences.
