Leo, meaning “lion” in Latin, is the 5th Zodiac sign in astrology. A fire sign, ruling planet being the sun, and associated body part the heart, Leos are highly courageous, and love being seen in the limelight. Ambitious, creative, enthusiastic, and witty, a rising sign Leo is hard to miss.
As the traditional Leo totem, the lion is a figure of courage and strength. Legend says that they sleep with open eyes, ready at all times. Primarily a nocturnal animal, the lion is a symbol of authority and command over subconscious thought.
In the realm of spirit animals, the lion wins the prize for the most relentless fighter in the face of life challenges. The presence of this power animal can mean that something “wild” or difficult to control is happening. As such, lions symbolize emotions that are difficult to manage, such as anger or fear.
Wisdom, power, royalty, dignity, courage, justice, ferocity, dominion, authority, honor, strength and leadership- to name a few.
