The sign of Leo is associated with entertainment and the arts (film, theatre, television, literature, fairy tales, puppetry and professional sports) and the hospitality industry (resorts, hotels and golf courses). Leo is all about having fun and being dramatically creative! Once you grasp this, you will understand your Leo baby.
Even when tiny, Leos will watch cartoons and movies. They love to hear stories, especially if you act out the roles or any make-believe creature, because to them, the world is meant to be an entertaining place. They love to make everyday events something special!
Naturally, your Leo baby is a performer! He will demonstrate this talents, singing, dancing or performing a stunt. “Look at me—no hands!"
Leo is also the sign of royalty. They’re not interested in sitting outside and having a sandwich. They want a royal picnic, a tablecloth, proper picnic basket and all! Your Leo child loves pageantry, ritual and tradition. (“We always have cranberry sauce with the turkey.")
When putting your Leo baby to bed, always read him a story and rub his back, a ritual filled with drama and personal affection.
Please take note: More than any other sign, Leo melts with praise. Complement this child every day because this is how he thrives. Writer Johann Goethe wisely observed that for children, "criticism does much but encouragement does more."
