Whether you are a Leo or someone who is just looking for a little courage in your life a lion could symbolize a way to give yourself courage. Leo (♌) is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Leo. In astrology, Leo is considered to be a "masculine", positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign and is one of four fixed signs ruled by the Sun. Being the fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo has been associated with the astrological fifth house. In Greek mythology, the constellation of Leo is explained through the tale of Heracles and the Nemean lion. More than a lion, this beast was the sibling of the infamous Sphinx whom Oedipus encounters. The creature had terrorized the countryside for years and all weapons were useless against it. Hercules was sent to kill the beast by Hera; as an illegitimate son of Zeus the goddess hated him and hoped for his failure. Hercules, however, proved successful in defeating the Nemean Lion, literally wearing his victory by making a cloak and helmet from the monster's hide. In honor of this great feat, Zeus set the form of the fearsome Lion in the night sky. Generally, the Leo sign are considered to be compatible with other fire signs such as, Aries, Sagittarius and other Leos. They are also compatible with the air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra).
