Your symbol, the lion, the king of beasts, has long been equated with your ruler, the Sun, king of the planets. Only the sun, the vital life force and the superstar of our solar system, emits light. You're naturally inclined to be in the spotlight on stage -- center stage. You project the confidence, nobility, strength, virility, and courage of the lion. Like the kings and queens of old, you feel it's your birthright to be in the center of affairs, with all others dependent upon you for leadership, guidance and solar energy. You love the enhanced sense of self that wielding power gives you, and you'll create ways to gain the position of leadership you feel you deserve.
Your keyword is RECOGNITION. You're happiest when others acknowledge your abilities, power, magnificence and authority. If they do, you'll be able to establish your place among the elite of the hierarchy. In your world, you make the rules, expecting everyone else to follow them if they wish to play your game. You're capable of expressing yourself in all your resplendent glory and make an even wider impression, which is your motivation. Taken to an extreme, your natural tendencies could lead to excessive egotism and the will to dominate and conquer without any concern for the welfare of your "subjects." The warning signs to watch for are stubbornness, dogmatism and biting sarcasm.
When you're truly your `Highness,' you're noble, generous, caring, open, loving and sympathetic. You can inspire others with your wit and humor and offer wise counsel based on your experiences. The romantic personified, you're intent on exploring every facet of love. You like romantic novels and dream of honeymoons, meeting a distant lover, or engaging someone of foreign birth, but it's hard for you to focus on one person. Someone generous, optimistic, philosophical, versatile, sporty, romantic, and open-minded could capture your undivided attention. You might meet your type while traveling, at places of worship, outdoor sports events (horse or car racing, archery, hiking), bookstores, publishing companies, colleges, in court, foreign countries, or on ships and airplanes.
With your vibrant personality, organizational abilities, acute financial perception and innate business sense, it shouldn't take long for you to work your way up the corporate ladder. A position as an administrator, civil service worker, civil lawyer, executive, or manager might give you the responsibility and authority you desire and lead to a future as a banker, stockbroker, financier, manufacturer, or financial analyst. Or you could decide to use your creative talents in speech-making, acting, stage direction, writing, publishing, music, singing, comedy, decorating, designing, gardening or farming.
You take pride in your strong constitution, recuperative powers and ability to maintain health. Your sign rules the heart, the vital organ of life. As long as you feel loved, you feel fine. However, it would be wise to protect your heart by keeping your blood pure, your arteries open and your circulation flowing. Medical studies have found that olive oil, ginger, garlic, and wine (in moderation) help ward off heart disease. Health professionals recommend you exercise regularly and eat seabard, vegetables, fruits, grains and legumes, and eliminate smoking, excessive alcohol and coffee, sugar, fried bards, animal proteins and fat, and stress -- both mental and environmental -- from your life. Protect yourself from colds and falls, and get regular dental checkups. Consider acupuncture as a remedy for knee problems.
