Leo 0-30 Sabian Symbols

In general, a quick surf of the net will tell you that the main themes of astrological Leo are:

Confidence, Play and Performance and Sports, Children, Artistic Self-Expression, Pride, Creative Risks and Gambling, Vitality in Purpose, Celebrations and Fun, Dad (rather than "Father").


When we look at the keywords of the Leo symbols (from Dr. M.E. Jones "The Sabian Symbols in Astrology", 1953) we get the following:

Jose Angel Arocha @ freeimages.com


Irresistibility, Importunity, Infectiousness, Endurance, Surety, Deftness, Adequacy, Ingenuousness, Imperturbability, Audacity, Confidence, Rejuvenation, Recovery, Retrospect, Instruction, Accentuation, Demonstration, Companionship, Congeniality, Fidelity, Communion, Morale, Enlightenment, Leaven, Delight, Genesis, Significance, Ramification, Contrast, Decision.


The keywords give us a similar sense of the main themes of Leo and the Sun, which is the 'planetary' ruler of Leo.

I include these keywords purely for interest, since Dr Jones was a gifted astrologer however the keywords are purely his interpretation of the symbols. I personally focus on whatever I feel resonates with the symbol, rather than going by someone else's keyword.  We all have different experiences - for example what may have been true for Dr. M.E. Jones, living in the first half of the 20th century in North America, does not necessarily resonate for an Australian Aborigine in the 21st century on the other side of the world.


What is more important is whatever resonates in you; or your interpretations and your sense of what is right for you. In all my discussions with people it is amazing the different approaches to the same Sabian Symbol, due to our different experiences and personalities.

A note on the images below: I decided a fiery-colours theme would be appropriate for Leo :)
