30 Day Challenge: Day 6 – Your Zodiac sign and if you think it fits your Personality

My Zodiac sign is
LEO

Shocking, I know…
This website is pretty comprehensive in describing the personality of a Leo.
My ruling planet is
The Sun
Which is weird because the Sun isn’t really a planet.
I believe this fits my personality because I bask in the sunshine and am a total Summer baby.
The Symbol for my sign is
A Lion

Or this weird symbol 
The choice of color for a Leo is
GOLD
I don’t know if that really fits me because I prefer silver jewelry to gold jewelry,
but I’ve spent most of my life with golden hair 
The Traditional Leo traits are:
Generous and Warmhearted
Creative and Enthusiastic
Broad-minded and Expansive
Faithful and Loving

On the Dark Side, Leos can be:
Pompous and Patronizing
Bossy and Interfering
Dogmatic and Intolerant

Okay, so do I agree with these descriptions as it pertains to my own personality?  Hmm, well
I think I might be too close to be objective, but I’d have to agree with all the good personality traits.
On the dark side, I’d have to disagree with the Dogmatic and Intolerant because, like I explained
in the Religion post, I’m more spiritual than dogmatic, and too accepting to be intolerant.
Except if you’re talking about intolerance for bigotry, abuse, and otherwise mean behavior,
then yes, I’m very intolerant of that.
 This is what the aforementioned website says about Leos:

The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch’s among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, self-confident there is no such a word as doubt in their vocabularies, and they are self-controlled. Born leaders, either in support of, or in revolt against, the status quo. They are at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism and innate courtesy of mind bringing out the best of loyalty from subordinates. 


They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and using all their energies, creativeness and resolution to get it, as well as being certain that they will get whatever they are after. Their followers know where they are with Leonians. Leonians think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers, their practical hardheadedness and ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend on them. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity.


On the whole they are powers for good, for they are strongly idealistic, humane, and beneficent. They have powerful intelligence and are of a broad philosophical, sometimes religious, turn of mind. Those who are devout may become very obstinate in upholding traditional beliefs and will cling tenaciously, but with complete sincerity, to practices and doctrines which liberal thinkers regard as absurdly out-of-date. These will be found as the ‘lions’ of industries, and in the forefront of the cutting edge of technologies. Their faults can be as large in scale as their virtues, and an excessively negative Leonian can be one of the most unpleasant human beings imaginable.

 As politicians they are content with nothing less than a powerful position in government. In business they may be the chairman of their company’s board, or at least directors or managers. They are excellent organizers and overseers, often laying the groundwork for new projects. If from the artisan ranks of society they will aspire to become the boss, partly because they are ambitious by nature, partly because they dislike manual labor, preferring to take charge of others doing it. 



If artistic, Leos can become stars of stage or screen (their bent is serious rather than light drama), maestros as musicians where they will gravitate toward the grand instruments or activities, such as the organ or conducting of orchestras and as painters; anything grand in conception and scale appeals to them. Leo women make exceptionally good welfare workers.

In his or her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. Outgoing, spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness, Leos are more disillusioned than the average if let down by those they trust. They are not good judges of character and are inclined to favoritism and an exaggerated faith in their followers which too often ends in disappointment. They have a strong sex drive and are so attracted to the opposite sex that they find it hard to be constant; they can be so intensely sexual as to become dissolute. They may have numerous love affairs for their love of pleasure and beauty is liable to drive them from one attractive partner to another.

I would have to say there are some things I identify with and some things I definitely don’t identify with.  I’m not a grandiose person who loves luxury.  I’m a Target kind of girl and love a bargain.  I would agree about being idealistic person and especially the part about Leo women being good welfare workers.  And I definitely don’t identify with the not being a monogamous person since I’ve been with my husband for over a decade.

I’m a proud Leo!
