Leo Is Ruled by the Sun

This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Leo by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modification by others.

This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for an easier Third Millennium read. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances it is well worth the read.

Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.

There is a short metaphysics experiment at the end.

Leo is fixed, fiery, masculine and barren sign and is ruled by the Sun. The Sun enters Leo on July 22d and passes into Virgo on August 22nd.

Personality Traits

The Leo personality is active minded and fearless. Though good-natured, generous, and slow to anger; this sign can become furious when their temper is aroused. Fortunately, this is usually a rare occurrence.

Other personality traits include determination and persistence; seldom becoming discouraged. They are natural leaders and resistant followers. This personality is very independent. They keep their affairs to themselves, especially as to finance and love. They are also industrious, honest and conscientious. This sign always looks to their own interests, usually resulting in being more fortunate than the average person.

Harmony and Compatibility

Leos make friends easily and often have magnetic personalities.

Sun sign people are compatible and harmonize best with the Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius and Aries. There is extreme disharmony with those born under the Sun with the water or earth sign.

Health

The Leo person, as a rule, has a strong constitution and good vitality, but often dies suddenly from overexertion.

Gemstones and Birthstones

The ruling gems of Leo are the Sapphire and Diamond.

Historical

Paraphrased Quote: (Editor’s note: circa 1901)

Leo is said to rule France, Italy, Rome, Sicily, Bohemia, Bath, Ancient Chaldea, and Philadelphia.
