The Sun, Ruler of Leo.

Sole570.jpgEach zodiac sign has a celestial ruler, a planet that characterises and is appropriate to it.
The nobility of this sign is tied to the sovereignty of the Sun, the dispenser of warmth who makes its home in this sign. As the Sun is identified as an archetype of our vital energies it is easy to see how Leo starts off with certain advantages, especially if the risk of an inflated ego can be avoided and the person remains open towards others. Following rules is not difficult, in fact the Sun keeps to defined astronomical movements: each morning at dawn it rises at a precise time, as for its setting at dusk when Phoebus drives his chariot home below the horizon. With regards to the solar system, Venus and Mercury are never far from the Sun, where the Moon ignores certain regularities completely.
The Leonine temperament always accepts to play by the rules!
