So I am calling them Dark Sun Leos but there is probably a better name for these creatures.
My theory is that Leos when darkened make for the worst ‘lower’ form of any of the Zodiac signs.
Usually I love Leos. I love how they are determined to imbue almost any occasion with a sense of light and style. I love their love of the arts, gourmet food, blinging up and that ribald sense of humour. I don’t even mind their ego and the lengthy regaling of one with anecdotes about them and their big-name friends, as Leo orders yet another bottle of champagne.
But Dark Sun Leos are vile. They’ve got all the Leonic hubris but no desire to shine, act up or perform. So all the light is turned inward or something – like what happens with black holes – and they’re snarky, resentful of other peeps success or attention/recognition and just hideously revolting.
I met one the other day and she was judgmental cant in motion. As opposed to poetry. Pompous moralizing, attention seeking psychosomatic illnesses, loud disavowal of all forms of human vanity and disdain for flippancy. Yet still managed to suck all the light and attention in the room toward her/her neurosis. Whereas normal Leos – Neo-Leos – give off a divine, shimmery golden aura.
