WESTERN ZODIAC SIGN OF
LEO

Those born under the Western Zodiac sign of Leo have much to say about everything. Leos are strong, confident, and majestic. They are highly social individuals who are often heavily involved in pursuits that interest them. Charming, witty, and intriguing, Leos tend to have a flair for the dramatic and many of them are born entertainers. Though they like to get their way as often as possible, Leos are also forgiving and generous individuals with a great zest for life. They have independent spirits and often are highly ambitious in their pursuit of personal happiness.

Leo is a prideful sign, so looking good and being liked are both important to this sign. They are outgoing and exuberant and most people enjoy listening to them talk, which is something of a performance in and of itself.




Leos must be careful not to become too self-involved though, as they can also be domineering and pretentious. Sensitive signs sometimes don’t understand a Leo’s loud and dramatic sense of communication and may interpret it as vain or melodramatic. Leos can also be very prideful and hide their true feelings if those ideas are unpopular. This sign requires adoration and respect and have a hard time understanding when they don’t get it. Leos can also be very controlling, though they almost always mean well.

There are 12 Primal Zodiac signs for the Western Zodiac sign of Leo, one for each sign of the Chinese Zodiac. If you don’t know your Chinese Zodiac sign you can use this chart to find both Eastern and Western signs.




Leo born during the Year of the Dog...

Leos born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Dog are represented in Primal Astrology by the Shih Tzu. Shih Tzus are more traditional than other Leos and have a strong sense of justice. They are, perhaps, the least socially adept of all Leos but make up for it with unwavering loyalty. These individuals are often anxious and can be emotionally unstable. They make excellent friends, though, and the presence of the Dog lessens Leo’s tendency to be a gossip. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Shih Tzu by clicking here.


Leo born during the Year of the Dragon...

Leos born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Dragon are represented in Primal Astrology by the Orca, a.k.a. “Killer Whale”. Orcas are the most prideful of all Leos and never want to look bad in front of others. However, if taken too far, this can lead to self-delusions and a lack of taking personal responsibility. The presence of the Dragon intensifies Leo’s feisty sense of self assurance, but lessens Leo’s soft temperament and tolerance of others.

Leo born during the Year of the Horse...

Leos born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Horse are represented in Primal Astrology by the Hyena. While most Leos have a warm, soft, lazy side to them, Hyenas are the exception. They are constantly on the go, and perhaps the most ambitious of all Leos. They are certainly the most energetic. Hyenas are witty and gregarious, and like to run in large groups rather than alone. Though highly independent they can also become very self-centered if the Horse becomes too strong of an influence. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Hyena by clicking here.


Leo born during the Year of the Monkey...

Leo born during the Year of the Rooster...

Leos born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Rooster are represented in Primal Astrology by the Peacock. Peacocks are hands down the most self-assured Leos.

They are often colorful individuals with big personalities, but they often take things too far and the radiant charm becomes demanding directness.
