Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Thank you all for the wonderful anniversary wishes the day before yesterday, today another stop in our journey along the Zodiac. Today also is a wonderful day, my father has his birthday and becomes today 84 yrs. He is the best dad I could have wished for. A strong man with a lot of wisdom, but also a casualty of the destructive illness cancer, my dad has cancer of the prostate and is treated with hormones which are given 2 times in a year. I am grateful that he is still here and that he can experience how I have grown in my haiku writing and in my work as an oncology-nurse. It makes me happy and humble.
Back to our Zodiac sign for today. Today Leo (The Lion) is the sign on which I hope to share a nice post with you all, my dear friends, and maybe a few nice new haiku. We will see.
|Leo (The Lion) July 23th - August 22th|
People born in this period always aim to get above the common herd of humanity, and they themselves in turn are naturally attracted to strong personalities – in fact, they will forgive any fault in the people they like so long as they have individuality and purpose. They are usually generous, kind, and openhearted, they find it hard to believe ill of others. If injured, they strike back quickly, but they also forgive easily and never hold a grudge. The bright side of Leo is very bright indeed, "sunny side up" they are very much attuned to the life giving properties of our Sun itself. The typical Leo is flamboyant and generous with tremendous charm and a magnanimous spirit.
The Sun is the single most important planet, because it represents a LEO's ego and individuality. It shows their ambitions and deepest character traits, where they have the ability to shine.
Such people represent what might be termed the heart force of humanity. They are overflowing with sympathy, and are generally generous to a fault.
Such people have the power to inspire others, and as leaders like Napoleon, born in this Sign. They have an ability to lead their men through fire or death.
People who were born in this period usually have an extremely independent spirit; they detest control or being dictated to. They have great tenacity of purpose and will power and if once they put their mind on some plan, purpose or position, they usually reach their goal in spite of every difficulty or obstacle.
Though full of ambition and enthusiasm, Leo has to admit to a lazy streak and, given the opportunity, will take the easy way out, especially when a situation offers little fun or glory. This is something lazy, luxurious Leo needs to watch.
ruler of the Sun leader of nature -
here him roar
here him roar
defending his kingdom
king of animals
