  1. Nominated Person: Leone The Leo.
    Leonic Reasons: Hair, Tiger lover and Big Hearted Community Spirit.
    Blessed with a mane that can be tortured by any inexperienced butcher (aka hair stylist).
    She supports The Balmain Tigers and more affectionately refers to them as “my boys.” By supports I mean regularly flys interstate to watch them play.
    Each year she says “Oh no girls, I won’t be doing The Christmas Lights this year. But it’s the children.”
    Preparation for The Lights is on-going; with hours spent online searching US Christmas Light Store and watching eBay. Most years The Christmas Lights are on and people come from all over to see her epic display. She is happy to tell you the story behind each and every decoration, and which family member will be receiving which when she has passed. Most of all she takes away the story of the little child who visited her house to see the light for the first time. For a moment, as the story is being told your sure you can see the sparkle of that child’s smile reflected in her eyes.

  2. I’m just loling because this somehow reminded me of the email Miss Mystic got some months back about how she gives Leos WAAAY TOO MANY POSTS.

    Hm I usually can’t stand Leos. I’d nominate my Leo rising friend who’s broken so many hearts without even knowing but has the ego to convince you that he probably does know…

    Enrique Bunbury is handsdown my favorite Leo. Not well-known outside of the Hispanic rock music scene, but he’s been a true perfomer for over DECADES and is still smokin hot in true Leo fashion.

  3. I nominate by beloved Stealth Leo. He has Sun in the sixth house, so can give off a very Virgoan vibe – but his Leonine nature beams in under the radar.

    Evidence includes: a loathing of ‘budget’ travel, and bad service in restaurants. He shakes hands with good waitstaff, and thanks them personally (in a regal manner, while tipping lavishly).

    His Venus in Leo manifests in a fetish for fancy lingerie & top-of-the-range sex toys. He also has vanity number plates. Stealthy, but oh so awesome.

  4. I nominate Carl Jung.

    This icon of psychology pioneered the concepts of: archetypes, the collective unconscious, synchronicity, introvert/extravert.

    Also for his interest in astrology, creation of the Red Book, and his belief that life has a spiritual purpose beyond material goals. And his indirect role in establishing AA.

    “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.”

    LOVE this man.

    • Great Leo! I love that he had a frenemy (Freud) and that he kept the Red Book on the down-low so as to not freak the muggles.

  5. I’d love to participate in this contest Mystic but there isn’t a leo, so I have to vote for the
    anti-leo http://mysticmedusa.com/2009/08/constellations-of-words/

    Other than your blog on Coco Chanel made me appreciate a leo,

    Amelia Earhart http://mysticmedusa.com/2013/02/amelia-earharts-pre-nup/ but that’s because of her gemini in venus.

    And Jesus! Why leo’s because 1. they have blunt humor that make me want to pee my pants. 2. They do fashion fab very well. I see this in my sister and when I do dress up and mingle I go all out, even the gay men turn heads. I don’t have leo anywhere in my chart other than in Lilith, if that has anything to do with it. As for Jesus, I think he was a higher universal man and a perfect human specimen and not the emaciated image history has portrayed him as. I think he was All man, married and had children too but oops, we aren’t supposed to know that part.

    Thanks for the contest :)

  6. I have to also nominate the irascible Gabrielle Coco Chanel. A woman, born into penury who rose to prominence from hard work and recognising opportunity. One of the first couturiers to liberate women from corsets to allow them a relaxed elegance with simple dresses, suits and pants. She encouraged the lavish use of costume jewellery allowing women the ability to look glamorous on any paypacket; and one cannot forget the release and endurance of some of the most divine fragrances ever created. Chanel eschewed the married life to have a few lovers instead and negotiated hard with her financial backers to become a very wealthy, independent woman.
    “The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

    • Hmmm, famed for her anti semitism, partnering with the nazis to steal Jewish business’s and assets while sending them to death camps. Screwing her work force whenever she could. Lovely woman.

      • Hmnn I was waiting for that. Yes she had a german lover during the second world war who was associated with the Nazi party but from reading her biographies there is nothing in there that suggests that she helped the Nazis in any way.
        Yes she was tough with money but most successful business people are. MM did not ask us to nominate saints.

        • Maybe her biography publishers decided that documenting the full facts were not in her financial interest. Successful business people tend to do that a bit too.

  7. I’m going to nominate my Leo husband, all 77 years of him as an honest, hardworking guy with integrity (and great hair, of course), who is my butt-kicker when I as a Libran need some combative stuff done. He has survived being blown up when serving in the British Army in Cyprus, still mourns mates killed here, gets choked up about the graves of soldiers of other nations, was an organiser, safety representative and shop steward with the Builders Labourers Federation where he was staunchly honest, stood up for working blokes on building sites, refused to allow guys to work in dangerous conditions, got good wages when bosses tried to underpay, and then was stabbed in the back by former friends and allies because he refused to cop corruption. He is adored by cats, dogs, donkeys, horses and mules. He has defended our four puppies from neighbours’ efforts to get us to get rid of them. He looks at plants and they bow and scrape before him and GROW! When I look at plants they wilt and die. Best of all he loves his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids and has managed to survive 36 years with me, which really is no mean feat, he must have a talent for endurance and a whopping great sense of humour. Let’s hear it for the ordinary Leo not just those in the public eye!

    • Aww! Sounds like he truly possesses the dual Leo qualities of bravery and gentleness. Fantastic.

    • And Mo, he is a handsome fine looking man to boot!
      Hard to believe he is 77, he looks at least 12 years younger.
      Love a good strong relationship…cudos Lady Libby

      • Thanks, everyone, and yes, Pegs, he is gorgeous looking. Someone called him a “babe” once, and I have great pleasure calling him a “babe” when I want to stir him up a bit.

        • lucky you, cc. what a wonderful man.
          love the thought of a leo who stood up for blue collar workers – not to mention the leonic courage/integrity it would have taken not to succumb to the corruption in that industry at the time.

          • Yes, you’re right, Fi, it is hard to stand up to the corruption in what is quite a brutal industry. We have good friends who’ve remained honest, but it’s been sad seeing others falling by the wayside.

    • Hey Mo! Email me with “triple Leo intern-7″ in the subject field.

  8. Well I have applied strict criteria in the selection of my favourite Leo – candidates could not be chosen just because they were a. famous b. good looking c. known for something frivolous (like being good looking) … they have to have done something remarkable to honour their ruling planet the Sun – giver of life yadda yadda ….

    So I nominate:

    Aldous Huxley: writer, humanist and visionary regarding the potential problems posed by modernity and an increasingly industrialised/technology driven society. Had great Leo hair. Darkly funny. Must have had strong Neptunian/Uranian chart influences due to his ability to predict contemporary issues 100 years in advance and fondness of psychadelic drugs.

    Robert De Niro: ok gorgeous, particularly in his youth … dripping with Leonine gravitas, was made to be screen eyecandy, but also has built a remarkable body of work throughout his career depicting an awesome array of male archetypes: the broken war hero, the warrior, the family patriarch. Just pure, oozing talent – Leo style.

    • oh and my mum – she “backpacked” in the 60s when it wasn’t particularly fashionable for a young Aussie chick to do so; was not interested in getting hitched or breeding (I was an accident in her 30s); travelled to unfashionable places – hated India loved Palestine, got into trouble with the Israelis because she wanted to visit Palestine (they said she couldn’t come back into the country with Palestine stamped on her passport and she told them to stick it); fought off a would-be rapist in the London tube by laughing at his small ermm thing; hates makeup; has big Leo hair; has read every science, history and political book known to man – alas has no Uranian influences unlike moi and thus hates technology, computers and sci-fi but still worthy of a nomination.

      :mrgreen:

      • I did that once, prowlncrab. Twice, actually, come to think of it. I had started work early and was completely knackered in the arvo, walked towards the front of the Tube station hoping to get a seat, and when I turned around, there was a seedy looking geezer complete with raincoat held open, flashing at me. I was so angry, I jumped up and down on the spot, started roaring at him, then chased him down the platform with raincoat flapping and his dangly bits bobbing up and down as he had no time to zip up. Another time a young bloke fished out his dick when it was late at night at flashed at me in an empty carriage. I was frightened but looked it up and down slowly then said: “Put it away, young many. I’ve seen plenty better and bigger than that in my time.” He looked staggered, looked down (and actually it was pretty damned big), had a wank all to himself, then jumped off the train in a snit. Great fun!

        • hahaha! yep Leo mum has mastered the art of “the withering look” …. pardon the pun ;)

  9. My favourite Leo and ever more significant would be my Mother Fay…a staunch feminist and supporter of women who believed that one day we will all be treated equally and fair. But mostly the fact that she took on her cancer without fear and accepted that this was her time was enormous. She passed within a month of diagnosis and with much dignity and strength. It will be her birthday in a couple of weeks and my sisters and I will scatter her ashes with love and celebration in our hearts.

  10. My beautiful friend and confidant Misha an icon of beauty in Brisvegas. She is THE make up artist in this town oozing warm noblilty to all. But her true strength showed when she nursed her wonderful Sagg free spirited mother through two very serious cancer treatments and the second when pregnant, her mother made it to see her beautiful grand daughter born and held her in her arms before dhe left this mortal coil, very much missed. Both the fabulous women have helped shape me with there positivity, strength and undying love.

  11. I vote for Top Cat. Biggest leo animated star of the 60’s..The opening scenes show off his prowess and wily Leo ways. Love his gang of admirers, always dapper, mannerly, a ladies man cat. Leo wise he has it all haute and Lo.
    Love the innocence of the early cartoons no violence , sex, weapons. or smart mouths.

  12. mystic, tiffany hwang (aug 1, 1989) of south korean #1 girl group girls’ generation is an amazing astro study with sun, moon, mercury and mars in leo!

    born and raised in LA, she moved to live and train ALONE in korea when she was 15 before debuting in this 9 member-strong group (which i may add has the sun in 9 different signs! coincidence??) in 2007; there’s more to her backstory that personifies leo (like her mother’s passing prior and her standing up to her dad to give her dream a chance) but the word DRAMA can sum it up nicely, in a good way of course, and not to mention the highs and lows of having a music career (plagued by anti fans, stalkers and hater netizens no less) once thought as an underdog she’s now top-lioness with numerous endorsements, magazine covers and sold-out concerts and did i mention their group was named influential celebs by forbes in 2011?

    insanely photogenic with the heart of an angel (http://snsdkorean.com/2012/10/01/tiffany-hwang-an-earthly-angel-in-disguise-image-heavy/), she has some serious leo chops most cubs would be envious for and she’s only 25! that link right there is a true account of when she was still a trainee and am not surprised at all that a queenly leo will always act with nobility and kindness.

    when asked in an interview what she considered to be man’s greatest invention, without batting an eyelash, she answered “eyelash curlers” lol

    but seriously, despite the jokes re: her self-proclaimed addiction to pink and that embarrassing first-pitch in a recent LA Dodgers game, the heart of a lion is so alive in this young woman cos she has remained humble and generous despite her success, she’s always ready to say a word of thanks to God and her millions of fans. often described as an angel because of her sincerity, you can literally see the sun shining regally through her famous “eyesmile”.

    definitely a notable leo of my culture and generation :) you can google more about her and the group’s cult like status re: pop music in the east

  13. Australian artist, mystic and fire-starter, Vali Myers. I was very lucky to have called her my friend and I always miss her at this time of year. So many Leo moments – Vali was very much like an embodiment of Lilith. I remember walking in Naples with her and it was pretty hairy, quite a dangerous street and Vali stopped at a street vendor and bought a bright golden plastic gun and stuck it into her belt pirate-style. She said to me everyone in this street is carrying a gun and in Naples we carry our guns on the outside – everywhere we went people stopped and cheered at her for wearing her gun ‘outside’. The streets of Naples opened up for Vali. She was 70 years old when she did this and I have a beautiful photo of this day.

    Vali could be very loving and very very ferocious – but only if you were stupid. The only time I felt her Leonic fury was when I arrived early one day at her home in Positano and she was in the middle of her monthly ritual of combing out and washing her hair, it took hours. She sat outside her little stone house washing her hair in a big silver tub and when she heard my footsteps she slowly looked up through the ruby veil of her long wet hair and her eyes stopped me in my tracks. No words were spoken but it was as if I had walked in on her most sacred and personal of rituals, I instantly turned around and came back later.

    She was a one off – she left Australia in 1950 with the clothes she stood in and a satchel of her artwork. Inside was a ten pound note hidden there by a friend. She created a scandal on the ship by turning up for dinner every night in a bikini and no shoes. She believed in herself 100 percent – whether she was living on the streets of Melbourne and then Paris as she spent a lot of her early life or at the Chelsea Hotel – it never made any difference to Vali.

    I’d love to see her artwork and life receiving the recognition it deserves in Australia – I hope that happens. You can see more of her life and art here:

    • Second this one – a beautiful, exceptional artist & free spirit, who I’m pretty sure I discovered thru MM’s blog. How lucky & special to have memories of a friendship with her, Julia.

  14. My fave Leo is my pa, who has left the planet now, but had an amazing life of triumph. He travelled the country asking questions and collecting adventures to share, was an amazing storyteller, entrepreneur and loved and valued his family.
    A local politician told me once he was the only person who had visited his office with a solution rather than a problem. He wanted to send fresh water that was being wasted from the Hydro scheme in Tas to Victoria instead of building a desalination plant. I remembered the idea, cause he had called one evening to ask me to look stuff up on the internet for his calculations.
    I couldn’t begin to tell all his stories! He was much loved and had an entourage working behind the scenes to keep him going. I feel very grateful to have had him in my life.

    • Hey! Please email with “triple Leo intern-4″ in the subject field.

    • She is so great: “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful”. That describes Leo’s to the hilt.

    • Ah, yes, the grande dame of leos. I think I liked her since I was 7yro. I always loved her quotes. Wish I had taken them more seriously, would have kept me out of a heap of trouble, lol

  15. Shes not famous or anything (though she probably should be) but my flatmate Heather is my leo of the moment… my house buddy with the wild purple mane. The lady writes poems about handbags, racism and navman. She cooks vegan and vegetarian feasts like a total boss. She constantly beats me at board games and lets me wear all her amazing clothes. She’s a fantastic lecturer and activist, a born leader… and if i say she’s great at golf i’ll probably get extra brownie points. Heather is just so effin’ fabulous that i’d write a comment about her for no incentive other than the extra time i’d get to think about how awesome she is.

  16. (To the tune of ‘Vogue’)

    Look around, and you’ll find us Leos,
    putting on a self centered show (go look around)

    Sometimes too much, sometimes too gracious
    Overwhelming you where you go…

    But there’s one day, we all need to celebrate,
    So many awesome souls came thru on.
    They were put on earth to teach and create,
    July 26th’s the date, yes, that’s the day, you heard me.

    Come on – Leo, Leo,
    Let your sun shine down on us
    Leo, Leo
    Hey hey hey
    Leo Leo etc.

    Carl Jung, & GB Shaw
    Let me tell you a few more
    Paul Gallico, he loved his cat,
    Jeremy Piven, what an act.
    Hellen Mirren, Mick Jagger,
    Talent that can only stagger.

    Sandra Bullock, Mozart’s son,
    And we are not nearly done,
    Taylor Momsen, Kevin Space
    Also known for being racey
    Kate Beckinsdale, Huxley too,
    Really how we love all you.

    Ladies with amazing grace,
    Fellers that can keep the pace,
    Brains and talent what’s there to it?
    Get born that day – there’s nothing to it.
    LEO!
    :)

      • do you? one of my besties has July 26 birthday and she is fabulous xx

        great entry Andy :)

        • One of my shaman teachers is 26/7 as well, he just exudes sweetness but is a total boy too. They really do rock. Kind of the perfect balance of intro/extrovert in my mind.

    • Not to mention my friend the brilliant Kansas-based leftist feminist poet & teacher Anne Boyer – now I know she’s in exceptional company!

      • Thank you Sweet Pi! And thanks for yr comment re my boy a few threads back, you are lovely.

    • Well, wait, did you nominate Madonna? I don’t always like her but she has got to be prima donna leona PLUS.

      • I am not nominating one Leo, I am nominating ALL 26th of July peeps or maybe even the day itself for being so awesome. Madonna not born that day.

  17. I shall give my face Leo the name Jean Pierre, in honor of the fact he often forgets mine, but never skips a beat in renaming me!

    86 years if age, a Father and Grandfather of a unique a glorious mix of individuals. When the sun retreats behind clouds for too many days, it is a sorrowful man who sits before me, but when it bursts forth in radiance, there he is, as radiant as can be, happily soaking up the rays and a glass or few of organic wine, surveying all that’s to be seen of the empire from the porch.

    When I look glum,  a simple, yet utterly confidant and sincere, ‘life’s good, sweetie’ warms my heart. When I philosophize on the big picture, and become overwealmed by the mess of the world, a dismissive, ‘I don’t know about that, but all you can do is what you can do’ empowers my faith in the small actions.

    He hid from the Nazis in the caves of the south if France. He started street brawls in post war Algiers. He sailed the world and scaled the masts of storm savaged boats. He settled in Australia and became a barefoot yogi living bush, at at age 40 began his life as a father, homeopath and chiropractor, helping many a soul realign in small town country Aus.

    When his off, best advice is to just walk away for a bit, because, you just know for sure that the sun will ALWAYS emerge from behind the clouds.

    • Please send me an email with “triple leo intern-2″ in the subject field.

      And thank you.

  18. My #1 Leo vote is for J K Rowling – rags to riches British novelist of The Harry Potter series – the best selling book series and highest-grossing film series in history. She went from welfare to multi-millionaire in 5 years.

    A single mother on welfare after moving continents with her young daughter to escape her husband, living as poor as is possible without being homeless, she is inspirational. The series loved by children and adults about a magical world with so many amazing moral and social themes – creating/children – so Leo. I mean who hasn’t fantasised about going to Hogwarts?

    She’s now wealthier than the Queen but is a huge philanthropist, mostly to charities that combat poverty and social inequality; children and one-parent families and medical organisations helping the impoverished. She says “I think you have a moral responsibility when you’ve been given far more than you need, to do wise things with it and give intelligently”.

    I love what she says here:

    Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
    – J. K. Rowling, “The fringe benefits of failure”, 2008.

    “The fringe benefits of failure” – something to think about in the current ZapZone :-)

  19. I nominate Fidel Castro.

    Castro was a lawyer who had such persuasive skills that authorities tried to prevent him having his own day in court by poisoning him while he was in jail waiting to represent himself on a charge of rebel action. When he got there he gave a four hour speech in which he outlined his vision for the country and criticised the government’s record in health and education. He received a sentence but became a popular hero – the speech, which he concluded by claiming “History Will Absolve Me”, was later published as his manifesto for revolution.

    When the revolution rolled into Santiago de Cuba six years later he declared “I should add that, personally, I am not interested in power nor do I envisage assuming it at any time” before taking office and holding it for 49 years.

    I guess there was just no-one else who was up to the job…

    • Fidel Castro? I would respectfully request you reconsider this nomination. According to the Cuba Archive, which is documenting the deaths of each person killed by Cuba’s rulers since 1952, more than 8,000 specific victims of the Castro regime — including 5,775 firing squad executions, 1,231 extrajudicial assassinations, and 984 deaths in prison have been documented. When fully documented, the body count is expected to reach 17,000 — plus the tens of thousands of Cubans who lost their lives at sea while fleeing Castro’s Caribbean nightmare. Stole Cuba’s wealth , transformed Cuba into a totalitarian hellhole. Low Leo

      • well of course it’s more complicated than that – I was just drawing out his fabulous Leonic oratory skills, charisma and declaration/action contrasts. As i understand it he was serious when he said he didn’t want power. After he deposed the US-backed and brutal Batista government he sought support from the US for a more socially just alternative of which he would not be a part however they refused – because he had just deposed the US-backed and brutal Batista government.

        Anyway don’t worry – I’ll choose a Leo political leader who doesn’t have blood on their hands. None? Oh OK, I’ll support that nomination for the Hunger Games actress because I think she only pretended to kill people.

      • I think Castro was pretty terrific, saving the Cuban people from the brutality of the Batista regime and having the guts to stand up to various bully-boy US administrations who tried to restore US control of Cuba. The economic boycott didn’t work which got right up the noses of those trying to undermine Cuba and Castro, bless his little heart, has managed to outlive various US presidents and remain a hero to the majority of Cuban people. Viva le Castro! (if that’s the right phrase!)

        • I’m with you there. If you are someone on a low income who gets sick – as everyone does eventually – you’re better off being a Cuban than an American….

  20. Madonna and Mick Jagger of course!!! super super Leos! i love the way they STILL shine their “Rays of Leo Light” despite age…

  21. I nominate my Leo twin daughters turning 9 this year. The competition is fierce between them academically, at dancing, piano, tennis, the list goes on. But then they are both so loving towards each other and look out for one another. There is no fiercer roar than from the younger of the two and the older twin is like she has been on this planet a million times before, she let’s her sister do all the roaring while she sits back and waits. They communicate with their friends their own age or with adults without any hesitation and can talk on a number of topics. They love to read, they love to play and they enjoy society. They are focused in different ways, they enjoy the discipline of ballet, one wants to be the best in class and her movements are precise the other moves at dancing like her body and mind are both dancing she tells the story in her face. My Scorpionic ways work nicely to support their enjoyment to be on stage, I am like the director/ backstage mum (the power) while they are the light, the vision and the focus…

  22. I’m going to say Isabel Allende. I couldn’t remember if she was a Leo, but her name popped into my head and there it was, birthdate Aug 2 1942.

    Why? Because I wanted some affirmative action, ok sure she has a pile of Kudos already but I am sure a Mystic Medusa Fave Leo Award would be the cherry on top.

    I haven’t read a singe one of her books but I know that when I get around to it, her writing will change me somehow.

    As far as wiki-style facts go, one thing that caught my attention was her Isabelle Allende foundation, which is “dedicated to supporting programs that promote and preserve the fundamental rights of women and children to be empowered and protected.”

    Also, it was Pablo Neruda who convinced her she should be a writer, not just a journalist. And we like Pablo.

    And also, this:
    “For a brief while in Chile, she also had a job translating romance novels from English to Spanish. However, she was fired for making unauthorized changes to the dialogue of the heroines to make them sound more intelligent as well as altering the Cinderella endings to let the heroines find more independence and do good in the world.”

    This sounds like something I would do, so bonus extra love from me there :D

    I should probably start with her biography shouldn’t I :)

    I am learning a lot from Leo-thinking about not talking oneself down, and my Leo-rising dad about always putting your best foot forward, having a strong front. So I would also like to nominate All Haute Leos for having a good effect on my self esteem!
    xx

    • my Leo ex wrote a song called Isabel Allende and the House of the Spirits – start with that book! and The Stories of Eva Luna are nice x

  23. My best friend, I’m not going to say his name as its not very common, anyway story as to the nomination. I was at the tail end of a seven year heroin addiction, he was always there for me but, he confided in me and told me the man I thought was his father during the time we had been great friends was, in fact his step father, his biological father had died of a heroine overdose when he was a baby, It shook me up and made me realize I had to act, I was hurting myself and those that love me. I am clean for a fair bit over a decade now and I still believe my friends confession made me snap out of my self destructive behavior.
    AzA

    • Great friends often have great timing. That’s very touching. And congratulations on turning it all around with such love in your heart for others.

      • Thank you so much, he basically told me we couldn’t be friends (after years) if i was going to continue down the self destructive path I’d laid out for myself, shook me into action and I was very touched that he could share something he had not shared with almost anyone. Did I win something? Wow. I’m humbled.
        L.L.L.L.

    • Congrats my friend. Send me an email when you can with “triple leo intern-9″ i the subject field.

      • Hi Triple Leo Intern,
        Um, I was alerted by a great friend on Facebook I’d win something???
        What is the email address to contact you? Wow, thus Jupiter in Kataka really is happening if I’m winning something. It means a lot to me as I spilled my Katakian beans on a very personal issue. Winning with typos in my post is a great honor haha.
        AzA

  24. I nominate an incredible Leo who deserves all the recognition he can get. He embodies being a Leo more than any person I have ever known.

    He is a muso, a beautiful muso. He even has one eye that is very cat like with a long iris. He sings of love and intimacy with the most sincere and erotic divine way, he captures women and men alike with his sensual ways.

    He buys the very best shoes, clothes, food, wine, chocolates that he can afford at any given time. I only know that they come in spurts on a muso budget because I lived with him. Otherwise you’d think he were evergreen.

    His heart is of gold. We’d just been dating two days and I was then in a head on collison. He moved in and literally became my nurse for months until I was well enough for him to go. True Leos are not selfish, they are kind beyond words or expectations. He sang to me every night while I was in hospital with a broken face. He stayed strong and comforted me when he didn’t have to.

    He is incredibly authentic. There is truly only one of him. We met at a Vipassana retreat as he was on a quest to be as authentic as he could be. Even in silence I saw him and knew there was so much more to this beautiful being.

    He is beautiful. He knows he is beautiful. He has great hair and unique features. He embraces them all. He is dramatic and uses his outward appearance to add the additional umph to what he says, sings, does.

    He is playful. He is like a child looking at the world with wonder. Climbing up to pick bush lemons. Stopping to pick flowers on a country road. Playing with animals, children and plants.

    I am sooo appreciative of this lovely Leo. I am forever in debted to him for his kindness and generous ways. Leo rules the heart and it’s totally true.

  25. My mum.Lioness who emotionally survived an abusive father,at 19 graduated from art school with top marks,within weeks birthed me in September,despite family pressure to have a termination,4 months later (still only 19) began teaching high school art to students only three years younger than her,created an amazing family home,back to art school for honours in ceramics,birthed two more beautiful girls,one diagnosed after many years of grief as bi-polar,.back to being a brilliant and inspiring art teacher,supported my father through physical,psychological breakdown,and in retirement is now a remarkable glass artist,super loving grandmother,and next week facing a biopsy for a tumour in her neck. All this done in a spirit of powerful love and fierce determination.Awesome woman,I love her with all my heart and soul.

    • Wouldn’t want to belittle such a story by writing “winner” in caps. Nevertheless you have won.
      Please email me with “triple Leo intern-number uno”

      Thank you everyone i had a great and at times rather sad time reading your comments.

      Best,

      Jack

  26. I nominate the uber-Leo Bill Clinton because he embodies the whole range of Leo from Low to Haute and he wouldn’t really be Clinton if these qualities weren’t all tangled up together. So you’ve got the narcissism of the Lewinsky affair, the compulsive need to be liked, loving to taunt his opponents. But you’ve also got someone who can communicate hope and through his sheer leonine charisma has engaged people in many important projects around the globe.

    I love his speech from the Democratic National Convention last year for his ability to connect with people so easily and effortlessly, playing a starring role (as all good Leos always do), but above all talking about how complex political issues impact people in their daily lives: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzDhk3BHi6Q.

    • Good choice, and now that you mention it- President Obama is a Leo — if Clinton is super-warm Leo, Obama is the cool but charismatic one (aloof Aquarius moon I think, yes?)

  27. JENNIFER LAWRENCE an amazing 22 year old actress whose stellar performances include Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games and Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Lining Playbook

  28. Well I would choose for a Leo contender Yves Saint Laurent, oddly he is reluctant yet unmistakably leo…Aura, style, eminent superior quality, grace with dare, audacity with refinement and modernity and I did not know anything of him when I was a child swimming at Balmoral beach (with the spooky shark net in the mid 70s), while my mother attended Ashtons Art School in the Rocks, and Balmain was full of artists, but around then I decided my paper dolls were to have an elegant wardrobe of gowns, separates of this time, sophisticated yet opulent. I was mesmerised by his tuxedo suits for ladies and his entourage of glamorous women followers…

    • And I like him even more for his decline, reclusive fragile nature juxtaposed with his grand genius…that influenced generations…So very private, refined and yet very prominent in a way he could not totally control despite his mastery.

  29. It has to be Jackie Kennedy. She did her hole life with awesome written all over her perfectly coiffed Leo stature. Widowed twice and still able to get on and get a job as an editor to keep on going, she was fashion icon, first lady, picture perfect mother (big, protective paws around those beautiful children), mannered, educated, social goddess who kept company with artists and writers, not classically beautiful but timelessly elegant, which made her fabulously attractive. She was resilient and kept on going despite sitting next to her husband that fateful day, dressed in that famous pink Chanel suit. She is ultimate – because she’s a July Leo and we’re different from those born in August. And she’s my icon because we share the same birthday.

    • Yes she is stoic, very elegant, composed, hard driven and admirable and yet ruthless…Married Onassis too…Which nearly drove (or did?) Maria Callas to her own end…

  30. My friend Nazreen. Once a thug tried to steal her wallet in a bar. She knocked back her scotch, slammed down her handbag( with hairdryer inside) knocked him out using her black belt while still wearing killer heels, picked up her purse, flicked her hair and walked away before her boyfriend vould even reach her. i take leonic inspiration from her to this day.

  31. Lets just call him Bill, he’s got 2 of the flashiest trucks in town. Too many lights are adorning them are barely enough in his opinion you know, so everyone in the town 500kms away knows he’ll be a passing through in a few hours. All his graphics on his rigs are beautifully designed by him. “Only subject I was ever good at….besides chasing girls”. Once when chatting with him walking along the rail platform….pointing going….mine, mine, mine, mine…though technically not but he does haul them. He’s the funniest, wittiest & outspoken on the UHF. He’s legendary for stirring up his (older) employee by asking him to wear his suspenders & stilletos to work the next day, no excuses. He works harder than anyone I know & likes to play the tables at the casino with big amounts that others wouldn’t be so bold, and usually wins. He once sang “I Wanna Now What Love Is” over the UHF I didn’t know whether to laugh or have the ground swallow me up haha. Always good for a laugh.

  32. I’m nominating my Mum. I don’t know how to insert photos to comments but if you could see her hair you’d understand. It’s like her hair is pushing itself out of her head ready to live. out. loud.

    She is proud as all hell and occasionally gets herself into trouble when she forgets that the world doesn’t revolve around her but she has a heart of gold and will do anything for anyone. After many years of glamourous work in the world of functions coordination she realised that her bubbly out-there nature can be better used to improve people’s lives. She now works her butt off in community services. She is the biggest giver I’ve ever met and she never ever stops!

    I love her more than anyone else in the world (including myself – as a libran that should tell you how awesome she is :p) and prize or no prize I think you should all know what an amazing woman she is.

    • That’s beautiful Nic . I have a Leo Mum too her hair always gleaming & her brush always in her handbag even when she didn’t have enough money for cosmetics. If anyone unfairly treated anyone one of her seven cubs she would roar and take on anyone. Even my abusive father would take off. She went through a lot bless her.

  33. The Leo (asc) in me finds it hard not to nominate myself, lol!

    For famous Leo women, I’ve got to give it to Kate Bush. Big hair? Check! She was also the first woman to have a UK number 1 single with a self-penned song — AT AGE 19!– talk about shining her Leo light and making a big impression! Everything she does musically and with the accompanying videos is all about making a BIG bold statement! And if you watch her movements, you can see she’s suuuuuch a cat!

    For men, it’s Robert Redford. Talk about Leo magnetism! I don’t think there have been many actors as stalked by crazed women as he has! Of course, being one of the most handsome men ever never hurts. Interesting that he’s a Pisces rising (and not simply because that’s a reverse of my Sun and ASC, ha.) Makes perfect sense — he’s got all of his Leo energy smoldering under a kind of romantic and dreamy exterior (dreamy, indeed!) But Leos, even with fish Asc, just can’t help but to get themselves noticed, and I think starting your own world-renowned film festival plus having an illustrious career of your own is quite Leonine!

  34. The one and only fabulous Dame Helen Mirren – July 26, 1945, in London – she of the rockin’ red bikini at 60, the brazen refusal to slink away from the limelight because of a few (gorgeous) silver hairs, the looks both withering and seductive, the healthy and lustful appetite for life, the sage advice to get out of your own way (“don’t be up your own bum” was, I think, the exact phrasing) and her recent advice to an imaginary daughter: just don’t take shite from men. Blaze on forever, Dame Helen!

  35. I’m a sap & am going to nominate my daughter. She just turned 1. My husband is also a Leo, btw. Anyways, I noticed some Leo traits right away. She’s incredibly alert & observant even if it appears she’s preoccupied. She’s very dramatic also. A yawn is an event!
    We have a home with 4 cats as well! And I’m a Gemini :)

  36. I am nominating my mother Joan – Leo supreme. As the 1st female editor of Northwestern University she had the curfew for women’s dorms thrown out. The paper went to press at 1am and the women had a midnight curfew. With her position she had the biased men/women’s dorm curfew abolished providing opportunities for leadership and freedom to all of the women coming after. Her editorials were radical, feministic and liberal. She globetrotted extraoridinarily. This was the late 60’s early 70’s and she and my father captured a rare moment in time. They rode a motorcycle from Europe around the Caspian Sea and down into Afghanistan, married in Kabul due to an ever more obvious baby bump, me. She had me in Malaysia and then went on to India. My mother studied and became skilled in the incredibly beautiful but HARD Indian dance style – Bharatanatyam and we stayed there for 8 years. Upon returning to the US, dealing with family disapproval, divorce and single motherhood she went on to excel and rise to the top in the New York Financial Communications field. Her career culminated with her post as the Head of Communications for the New York Stock Exchange. This was followed by a terrible few years and an eventual legal suit for discrimination against AMEX when a new CEO with a vendetta tried to oust her. As a mom she was not the hold your hand and listen to your stuff type. She preferred me to call her Joan – hated the word mom – thought it made her sound old (Leo Narcisism?). She is a loner, action oriented, strong and capable with a take no shit optimism! She just celebrated 68 and shows no signs of becoming tame. She is pioneering the Export division of a large company, travelling and pursuing her passion for nature photography and reluctantly embracing her role as a grand…no…glam’ma. She is the best Leo an Aquarius daughter could have (except for the occasional power struggles) and I am filled with inspiration, love and gratitude! Not sure if this is enough to get Mystic’s prize but had to put it out there…

  37. Once upon a time in a far away land, there lived a wise woman all golden and grand..she was known as the Leo from far and wide , and was esteemed for her regal and royal pride..she had long wild hair all soft and fair and whom ever she met would trap and snare..she was a queen all dripping in lace, but if you were to disgrace she would roar in your face more harsher and cruler than the meanest mace..she was a woman of power all style and grace but do her wrong and she will ruin your case…but most of all she was warm of heart and has been this way from the very start. She is a woman of beauty no one can deny, you’d have to be dead to turn a blind eye …but for all her strength, courage and and charm it was the little ones to protect from harm, the innocent the weak the mild and meek, these were the ones that mattered the most, while in her watch keep safe from ghost..she is a woman of honour, diamonds on her collar , kneels down on her knees and screams at the horror..you would not dishonor this woman of warmth , for whom turns there face away from her shine, this Leo lady of yours and mine..

  38. Leo Rising FREDA KAHLO (Kataka Sun, Taurus Moon). I don’t need to tell her story, do I? I don’t think so. Her ferocity of spirit is legendary, so chronic leonic.

    And in total agreement with DP above, Leo son CARL JUNG: my guru & muse! If there was a Church of Carl Jung, I would belong; I’ve considered attending the institutes, but that shiz is too rich for my blood (when I can use the library for free). I made a collage in hommage to Jung a few years back that I’d love to share with all of you, will post a link shortly…

  39. Well, I feel obliged to nominate my leonic husband, mostly because he’s a wonderfully laid back Leo but also because today is his birthday! And yes, we are living large to celebrate: we already enjoyed a full day of traipsing about town to all his favorite spots a week early, spent the last few days planning a lunch out with friends and family and negotiating a deviation from our normal gluten-free diet to enjoy some of his favorite food.

    And in typical Leo fashion he has spent the last ten minutes trying to read this comment over my shoulder. “What are you writing about me!? I want to see!”

  40. Everyone has a bit of Leo in them especially those parts that transcend the fact that when you were a child, someone may have told you that you were a lamb but really you are a lion.

  41. I nominate the one Leo in my life, my tenacious wild haired wild spirited son, who somehow rules every where and every one he encounters. He isn’t famous yet, but I am sure one day he may be. Whilst in high school he was in the gifted and talented for art. He came home one day aged 15 and said he didn’t want to be an artist as he decided he didn’t want to be rich. He left home to become homeless and plant vegetables in round-a-bouts in order to connect with and feed homeless people. (He has a different career now.) I have a syndrome that meant I never should have been able to deliver a live birth, my Leo was born 1.6kg with a placenta less than the size of my fist and a cell missing in the umbilical cord, he should have just been a mass of cells that left my body early, but he came into the world and grew and grew and grew into the wonderful, wild, charming and endearing Leo creature that he is.

    • I vote for Elizabeth’s miracle wild child who embodies golden, noble Leo qualities.

    • Amazing!!

      Send me an email with “triple leo intern-6″ in the subject field.

      Feel free to tell me how your son is doing now!

      • He, is of course, going to have a birthday soon, his 27th. Qualified as a chef, worked for a few years then went overseas to come home and look after me after I had major surgery three years ago. (He isn’t my first choice to have as a career – bit like boot camp healing.) Then decided a career change was in order and is now study biology and physics. He has chickens that he has trained to come when he whistles and follow him around the garden, just as if he was the king rooster and an amazing vegie patch. He still draws every day and will always be a wild free spirit (but then I am a bit of one too – being very saggo)

  42. I have to nominate my ex-husband as my favorite Leo. Sure, he got kind of territorial post-divorce, and his Mars-Uranus opposition gives him a temper, but his Leonic nature wins. He never fought over our cub, he obsesses over getting himself – and our child – proper shoes, and he won’t eat anything without sharing – in fact, he would give his food away and go without before eatting when others had none. He makes sure others laugh, even when he’s not feeling happy himself, and he forgives others foibles. I have no desire to reunite with said -Leo, but he is close and important to me because of the years we spent together and the cub we share. What can I say? I’ve never had a celebrity crush.

    • that brought a tear to my eye. My ex is a goat, a real utter rotten goat. I could go on but I am not going to expend too much energy. Not only left when his daughter was born with the parting line ‘you’re not my responsibility’ but has now done the self same thing to the woman he left me for! Oh and off with a n other. That is not my gripe but the fact that he leaves her and his son with no means of support either and then goes so far as to have his new girl to drive him back to the home of his son to take the only means of transport off the drive whilst he also has a privately plated discovery to play with. Like really??? Has he learned no compassion in the last 17 years????
      So with that out of the way I would like to nominate 12th House Virgo’s ex hubby because he’s a real king!

      • Thanks! Too bad your ex is such a jerk. My Libran brother is the same way. And clearly my ex and I had problems, but he is an engaged father. I know the divorce hit his pride, but he never took that out on our daughter. I like celebrating good dads :-)

        • That’s just it. Celebrate the life you had. And the kids you have. Move on by all means but do make sure that all is done with love and compassion. I’ve sat now with the girl who was my replacement. It was hard 17 years ago but now I’m just concerned for her. I cried when I heard of his behaviour again. The fact that he had learned nothing. That he would now put a son through what he’s put a daughter through ? But equally I know of many men who are fabulous men in all that means. Strong loving and noble. Just the Leo ticket.

          • I understand the painful disappointment. My Libran brother and 4 children by 3 mothers gave me that too. I just don’t talk to him anymore. I have no respect for him. I imagine that’s an important pattern for you to see – that his behavior wasn’t personal, it wasn’t about you or your son, but totally about him.

            • Oh completely. I always saw it was his journey, his stuff. And like you I just have left him to it. Disappointment yup, that is about the shape of it.
              Hey Congrats on your win. It was a lovely ode to the leo. x

    • Thank you for pointing out the gentler, more endearing aspects of a good Leo.

      Send me an email with “triple leo intern-11″ in the subject field.

  43. For me, it’s the once and future Peter O’Toole: Great hair, depreciating charm, magnetic presence, and generally radiating leonine awesome. Compelling and complex whether he was personifying good or evil, generous enough to spoof himself in My Favorite Year, the only actor I can think of who could deliver Anton Ego’s final speech without a trace of irony, and still stunningly graceful at 81. Happy Birthday P O’T August 2, and thanks for the lifetime of great movie moments!

  44. So many amazing choices. I nominate my personal Leo role model Bugs Bunny. Thanks to Mystic to clueing me into this.

  45. How long has this entry been up and no one has yet nominated The Leo Socialite, ahem??

    I would tell you how wonderful she is, but she does it so eloquently and humorously better than I can, TLS, are you out there?

    Please take the stage and nominate yourself, Beautiful!

        • Was going to nominate the Leo’s here when luva a Leo came up, TLS, Andromeda & Leo Groover as there no Leo’s in my life, ‘cept here and Myst’s Leo followers are very special, kind and noble and i am amazed t their strength.

  46. Wait, I have another. Romy Ashby, we share a birthday but she is way cooler. Author of The Cutmouth lady, the engine behind Goodie and Housedeer magazines with full length interviews of Debbie Harry, Vali Myers and Edgar Oliver and more, a chronicler of a period of New York City with cheaper rents and you were tripping over artists, an animal lover and inveterate city walker.

  47. I am just bursting at this opportunity to kvell about my dear friend, Christi, Leo Queen Extraordinaire. With a stellium of Sun, Moon and Venus in Leo, she rocks this sign like no one I have ever known. Her aura is a perpetual golden spotlight that causes heads to turn wherever she goes and yet, she always makes me feel like the center of the universe when I am with her. There is no one better to knock me out of any self-diminished love zombie mess. She quickly and lovingly brings me right back to remembering my own divinity and right to be treated with dignity and respect in any relationship. For example, always intent on spreading the love, she arranged for me to meet a friend of her husband’s who she thought would be a great match for me. She introduced us and stayed with us as we chatted over tea. She maintained her characteristic dignity and composure as he proceeded to communicate his disinterest in me by showing us dozens of pictures on his phone of a scantily clad woman he just spent several weeks on an exotic island in Italy with. It was only later that I learned that she was far more upset and teed off by his behavior than it ever occurred to me to be (having experienced far worse effrontery on first meetings). Her “off with his head!” anger at his disrespect and insistence that I deserve so much better was just one of many instances when her protective and loving Leo-energy restored my sense of dignity and reminded me of that inner Queen that Christi always brings me back to connection with. Finally, she has BY FAR the best marriage of anyone I know. She and her beloved Aries husband are even developing a program together to teach and coach others about manifesting and sustaining True Love. My heart always expands in her presence and leaves me that much more loving with others as a result. How I love my favorite Leo!!

      Beautiful.

  48. Jackie O! It was her birthday yesterday. Regal as hell. Queen of Jungle America. Not royalty in the stodgy Capricorn way, in the endearing Leo way.

    Jung is actually probably the best person ever, he should totally win, and there is a pun there if you say he is King of the Jungle, and puns are important. But, I don’t feel that he is clearly identifiable as a Leo. I guess that’s because he was doing Leo so well, doing so much work on deconstructing Leo, I mean ego.

  49. There has been one big Leo in my life and damn he was stubborn as fuq. The most arrogant and self indulgent person imaginable. He had too much pride to ever admit being wrong and he used to twist the truth in his favor. He was the one with the best memory, best listening skills, best social skills, best bloody everything (at least he believed that). He manipulated (and still does) every single person around him and unfortunately I fell under his spell too. I admired his strength at first but slowly it started killing me inside. All criminals get caught when they get greedy and his ego got caught in itself too. Eventually his dominance increased to the level where I had to run away as soon and as far as possible. He caused (and still does) pain and misery to everyone who loved him because he is so stupidly lovable no matter what. He might not be the shiniest Leo on Earth but I think I deserve a gift for putting up with him for too long.

  50. My fave Leo is a lovely gentleman I had a failed affair with…

    A botanist…terribly insecure about his receding hairline…all it took was a few lines of poetry or song to send him into rapt adoration….terribly emotional and LOVED nothing more than a good unrequited love-affair he could get all bittersweet over. The man did not like to be chased to say the least! Adorable fellow. Prone to likening relationships to those between characters from period novels. Drama king.

    Specialised in studies of the orchid. Had a great appreciation for feminine beauty.

    Whenever I saw him he would comment on my hair before anything else! (I always seemed to run into him after getting my hair done and it looked fabulous…is good hair a leo magnet perhaps?)

    • Hahah what a well placed blow! This rings true.
      Send an email with “triple Leo intern-12″ in the subject field.

      “it’s not receding it’s just a widows peak” said the Leo.

  51. Mucha! Alphonse, my super-massive creative mojo Leo artist inspiration. The guy who started and epitomized the Art Nouveau movement. Oh, and the hair in his nouveau models is so Leo – flowing and dramatic. Mucha himself decorated everything with his goddess gals. He vaulted to stardom after producing a lithographed poster of Libra diva Sarah Bernhardt, and she adored it so much she became a muse-patron for a six year contract. There was nothing Mucha didn’t design – posters, paintings, advertisements, book illustrations, jewelry, buildings, furniture. Oh, and used his money to fund nationalistic movements and worked to help Czechoslovakia win its independence.

    True expression of haute Leo and haute 5th house.

    • Oooh! Good one AquaMeg! Love A.M. and had no idea he was a Leo, but makes sense now that you mention him.

  52. Andy Warhol! Born August 6th, 1928.

    A quiet, awkward child, Andy (named after his parents’ first son who died before Andy was born) never had a boyfriend and was rumoured to be a virgin YET he harnessed his Leo power to take over New York and the Modern Art scene, complete with a collection of over 40 platinum wigs. A lion with many manes, tres chic!

  53. My sister Harmony is the most fabulous Leo!
    She has survived breast cancer then this year went on to raise $10,000 in the Mothers Day Classic for breast cancer research. This made her the 3rd biggest fundraiser in NSW.
    She has inspired us all to adopt healthy patterns including exercise, meditation and eating organically and with her philosophy of ‘Don’t sweat the small stuff’.

    • Powerful Harmony!

      Send me am email when you can with “Triple Leo intern-13″
      in the subject field.

      Love and respect to your wonderful sister.

  54. A toast to a Leo. I am going to say it!! Madonna!! The queen of pop. With many arrows to her bow. Her perpetual makeovers, always with a marvellous manicured mane. She is bold not beautiful…that therein is where lies the magnetism that is Leo. She never stops, has always something going in the pot and quite the philanthropist. People dislike her because she is bold and unforgiving …. so Leo. Having 13 bucks in her pocket and then moved to New York is quite inspiring..look how far that cub has come. She embraces taboo and flies with it. For me she is the Lioness of all Leos.

  55. Yo guys – the Triple Leo Intern has begged to be allowed to judge this so i told him yes and he is going to do it later today – so if you have not yet got your entry up, please do it soon xx

  56. David Duchovny – not for being sex obsessed, but for his character Mulder in X-files. So far ahead of its time in terms of a mainstream TV show (I don’t watch TV, I download it) or could it be that we just haven’t had any decent Alien or Conspiracy theories since?

    Aside from Mulder, My soon to be 2 year old son has to be my absolute favourite Leo. His most recent arms flailing, leg twisting, falling to prostrations on the floor while chanting “I Cazy!” (I’m Crazy) makes me feel that I’m doing ok as a first time parent.
    Leos are possibly my most favourite people!
    Maybe this has something to do with Leo cusping my 7th&8th houses.

  57. As a Leo myself, I’ve always got other Leos on my radar, and of all the wonderful leonine types out there, I’d have to nominate Antonio Banderas! Not only did he give life/voice to Puss in Boots in the Shrek films, but he has a beautiful kittenish face, feline grace and true Leo loyalty to his much-maligned (also Leo) wife Melanie Griffiths. In typical Leo style, he’s really creative – not only as an actor but musically. He can be loveable, smoochy or tough, and knows how to turn on the charm – all qualities of a haute Leo IMO! And to conclude: some words of wisdom from the man himself…”There is nothing in the world that cannot be cured by love. That is the most thing.” Ahhhh…

  58. Honor Blackman…..Pussy Galore in Goldfinger also played Cathy Gale in Avengers in leather catsuit. Still incredible at 87! Feline, amazing gravelly voice, very politically active in UK ( A Leo wanting UK to be Republic !) supported Alternative vote referendum. Prefers being single, adopted 2 children….a really Haute-Leo. Also publicly criticized Sean Connery for being a tax exile, ‘ I’m very disappointed in him. I don’t think his principles are very high’. Top Leo… also check her hairdo in Jason of the Argonauts.

    Other nomination is for Robert Redford not only wonderful actor but has contributed so much to film making and helping new directors.

  59. This is probably a bit late for the judging but I would have to nominate my late father, who was Sun conjunct Venus in Leo.
    Born into a very working class family, with a blacksmith father (who played violin), Dad was a true renaissance man and a true romantic, who met my Scorp mum on the school bus and made short work of other contenders for her hand.

    An engineer, who pulled apart a radio to see how it worked at age 5, later worked on pilotless planes (and adored Hedy Lamarr for her brains as much as her beauty) he had that not-so-lauded-but-very-common Leo ability to fix or restore ANYTHING broken – boats, washing machines, cars, hearts, whatever. There was, in fact very little that he could not do.

    He wrote beautiful poems (some of which he used to woo my mother), and published a book of them. He was too lazy to learn to read music, but didn’t need to really – he could play anything on the piano by ear – usually on the black keys. Blessed with a truly fabulous bass-baritone voice, he loved showing it off when our very large extended family got together. A master woodturner and craftsmen, he made all our furniture (and a harp and a violin!) and became President of the Woodcraft Guild after he retired, during which time he also delighted in making one-off devices to help the disabled. He traced both his and my mum’s family genealogy and wrote a book on it, to leave as a legacy for the present and future generations.

    Family was everything to Dad, and in spite of his air of authority and nobility (an aura so profound that it meant that discipline was never necessary in our family) he was, like most Leo’s, a total softy, especially if his wife or any of his three daughters cried.

    At 70, he looked about 50, thanks to an incredibly active life and all but a few grey hairs. Soon after, he then endured a dreadful terminal illness (motor neurone, for which there is no cure) with incredible courage and humour. As he was being cremated, he instructed that his coffin should be made of chip board or the like, because he couldn’t bear to see fine wood go to waste. Watching him during this period gave me a lesson in true nobility that I will never forget.

    And when I ran the eulogy I had written for him past him in his dying days (to be sure he’d be happy with it) for once, he made no correction. “You’ve been much too kind,” he said, with a tear in his eye. Like all truly talented Leo’s, whose ego is well-deserved, his innate nobility nevertheless had ensured that he had mastered the art of humility by the end of his days….

    • so beatiful Fi. brought a tear as we share a very similar paternal heritage
      engineer tick
      wood craftsman – he made a guitar and our furniture tick

      mine was a shy aries/taurean who put up with his wayward leo daughter – I don’t know how – he had no patience.
      Noble in passing tick – his living will ensured that.
      Thank you for sharing

      • thanks honey xx
        Not an easy relationship by any means, given the too-insane-to-be-coincidence synastry full of exact conjunctions and oppositions between him, mum and me, and their own relationship problems while I was growing up.
        Still, ferocious loyalty a common denominator in us all, and the synastry totally explains to me why I chose to be born to them….

  60. I’d like to nominate one of the more subtle Leo’s I’ve known; a quaint little lady named Isa. In the relatively short time I’ve known her I’ve found her to be anything from a cute and cuddly house cat to the most ferocious lioness, and despite her tiny stature one cannot miss the light and energy she radiates as if she were the Sun itself.

    Despite thinking that she’s not Leonic, I’d have to disagree: she’s a whole package of rad tastefulness and fabulosity. Always stunning no matter how she’s dressed, her tasteful tattoos and barely ruffled hair give off an unique elegance the likes of which most Leo’s are too self-obsessed to give themselves a permit for. I also admire her qualities as a loving and devoted mother of one of the most hilarious and firey young girls I’ve ever met; gifting her the namesake of histories most electric and eccentric scientist, Tesla.

    She’s a mercurially talented writer; articulate and easily one of the most intelligent among I’ve known, and an advanced and spiritual individual whom I am grateful to count amongst the few people I can share my astrological passion with; her perspectives greatly helping me advance my understandings of my inner and outer worlds. I respect that she’s completely unafraid to dive deeply into herself and see where she’s hurting most, and transmute herself healthily. Her social awareness is admirable and noble, and revealing of a selflessness which you’d never expect of the stereotypical Leo.

    Isa is generously kind and sweet of heart, being sure to see people for who they are. She saw the light inside me when I was in one of my darkest times, and for this I feel eternally grateful. Despite my then-fears she touched my heart unlike any other, gifting me the perspectives and knowledge with which I was able to confidently continue my own inner and outer paths. In ways unknown she’s inspired me, and I trust will always do so. I appreciate that I can say anything to her and not be judged or looked down upon, even if I may fear otherwise. She’s always been completely straight with me, completely honest and open, requiring little in the way of encouragement to do so.

    I hope that when she reads this she does so with her distinctly curled smile, and that she recognises in the depths of my soul that I’ll always cherish the time that I spent with her and her heart, and the insights I received into her complex and fascinating mind. She totally deserves recognition for her awesomeness, and I’m sure even if she isn’t the most self-righteous Leo out there she’ll feel at least slightly chuffed and empowered by the fact that some hypersensitively modest earth & watery hybrid just dug it out of himself to talk up the most quintessential Leo he knows.

        What can one expect with the Lion as a symbol, huh?
        ‘They shall roar and like young lions be heard throughout the nation’.
        That’s from the bible i think.

  62. I would like to nominate my mother. She is a tiny Japanese woman and consummate Leo in every way imaginable – passionate, regal, perfect hair. As a child in rural Japan she was an A student and champion skiier and then worked as a fashion model in her late teens and early 20s. In college she met my father (an American sailor) and defied her family’s wishes by eloping with him to Hawaii. She studied English and wrote her thesis on William Faulkner, and to this day she speaks English with the precision of a professor.

    When I was a small child I loved watching her set her hair in hot rollers – she had a flawless 50s pin-up hair look in her late 20s and 30s and always wore perfect red lipstick. She has wide-set eyes and thick gorgeous hair. She wears huge hats and sunglasses to protect her fair Asian skin, and her nose is actually somewhat Anglo – straight and precise, very regal.

    She is also the consummate Asian “tiger mom” – let’s say Lion Mom. She had me playing piano and going to ballet and painting lessons throughout my entire upbringing starting at age 5, and she’d battle with any teacher or parent who she thought was treating any of her 3 cubs unfairly. She is somewhat mellowed in her older years but the aggressive feline energy remains – you can see it in her flashing narrowed eyes.

    • Japanese -Hawaiin blend women are some of the most beautiful i have seen, guess that’s you!

  63. According to Liz Greene, in her book The Astrology of Fate, Arrogance, Pride, and the Need to be Center Stage is what the Leo is tasked with removing in their lifetime (all these traits are remnants of excess in their opposite Aquarius sign). Karma seeks balance. Leo is self mastery; the lone vehicle instead of a desperate need to be accepted by the group (hence, the loyalty traits). It is unconditional love, regardless of what others think, that creates “leadership qualities” in the more evolved Leos. They stand their own ground. Here’s a direct quote from Liz Greene: “Leo, ruled by the sun and therefore connected with the mystery of individuality and the fated path of individual maturation, is not really about creating something that other people can applaud. More profoundly, it is about the development of a unique individual essence in search of its own source. The lion is associated with concupiscence and pride. It is a fighting animal and suggests health, but also destructive, aggressive impulses. But the lion can be tamed and respond to human care – lions were kept as pets by Egyptian and Persian royalty – and were confronting something much closer to consciousness; the lordly passions of the heart. The lions stage is a process with which there is an alchemical work to be performed. The lion is not permitted to remain in his bestial form, but must give way to something other. It seems a disturbing aspect of pattern that Leo is often treated with circumspection proper to the jungle, or methods of the animal trainers use of whip and goad. This is a painful process for Leo, whose childlike heart is deeply injured by the reactions of his fellows to his excesses. He meant for the best but somehow others weren’t appreciative and often became angry instead. If Leo himself does not sense the importance of the process than life tends to teach him rather forcibly that a lion cannot roam loose among men without some retaliation.”
