Astrologers astrologers Jo O’Neill, Nick Dagan Best, and Chris Brennan do a deep dive into the meaning of the zodiac sign Leo in astrology, and discuss some of the traits and characteristics associated with people who are born with that sign prominent in their birth chart.
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, and it is a masculine or diurnal sign, cardinal, watery, and ruled by the Sun.
This is the fifth entry in a series of episodes where we do a deep dive into each of the signs of the zodiac, one per episode, in order to develop a detailed understanding of their core meaning and significations.
Jo and Nick’s credentials for this episode are that they both have stelliums in Leo, which include both the Sun and Ascendant in that sign.
During the course of the episode we talk about different keywords and archetypes associated with Leo, and also look at some birth charts of celebrities who were born with different planets in that sign.
