Poetry through the Zodiac Houses: *Leo in House #1
Updated: Sep 18
Fun. That's what it's all about. I must make it fun, whatever "it" is. And love. Love is the bottom line for Leo Rising, Leo Ascendant, Leo in the First House. I love you with my lion heart. Got to have many mirrors around to check my mane, make sure it is brushed, combed, styled, and looking fine. And play, let's play like children, play follow the leader, I'll show you how it's done, I'll be the first one on the dance floor, love me a stage to prance across, an adoring audience to watch my moves. Let's pretend, be brave, show them who is King and who is Queen. I give you permission to massage my neck, shoulders and paws at any time. I reward you with my purr, meow, roar. And the shadow side - I like to tell you how great I am, I can always find something to brag about. Treat me like royalty and I'll show you some loyalty. I may look relaxed while lounging around, but I'm always ready to pounce.
* The rising or ascendant sign in the astrological chart is the constellation that appears on the Eastern horizon at the exact moment of one's birth. The rising sign is the ruler of the first of the 12 houses in the Zodiac wheel.
* Some Leo Traits: warm, passionate, dynamic, charismatic, strong, brave, domineering, bold, confident (shadow: tendency to brag and boast)
* First House Subject Matter: appearance, image, self-identity, how you come across to others
