Let’s explore Wiccan Leo correspondences! The sun travels through Leo from the dates of approximately the 22nd day of July to the 22nd day of August under the tropical Zodiac. It is one of the three Fire signs, in addition to Sagittarius and Aries.
Leo is represented by the Lion symbol. It is the 5th zodiac sign, originating from the constellation Leo. It has a fixed quality, and a positive or masculine polarity.
Leo is a Fire sign. Fire signs are passionate, fiery people just like flames. Their powerful emotions can be used for good or bad. Tempers can quickly fly and set off a rage, or they can be channelled into a quick and monumental success. They don’t let obstacles get in their way, and are great at pushing and motivating others. Always dynamic, Fire signs exude magnetism and intensity. With proper control, they can use their creative and multifaceted qualities for great things.
The Sun rules this sign. In Leo, Saturn and Uranus are in detriment, and Pluto is in fall. Neptune is exalted in this sign.
Leo’s ruling Tarot card (Major Arcana) is Strength. This card is about courage, steadfastness, dauntlessness, and fearlessness. It’s about overcoming obstacles and coping through difficult situations. The card is about holding strong, determined, and persevering through obstacles, criticism, and uphill battles. Besides inner strength, it’s also about using one’s forces for good. Use power for leadership and solutions, not ego or hubris.

Leo sets high standards and takes charge to get things done, sometimes to the detriment of friendships and collaboration. They are persistent, meddlesome, and intolerant. However, Leo’s power and idealism make them fiercely loyal and dependable companions.
Conversely, they make frightening enemies. Leo has an inflated view of his capabilities, sometimes bordering on condescension and arrogance.
In magickal work, Leo correspondences lend themselves to communication, expression, fluency and poise (like public speaking), being in the spotlight, confidence, creativity, and fertility and childbirth.
