When I learned about astrology, back when I was in my early 20's I think, I felt completely at a loss with being a Leo. It just didn't fit with me at all.
Years ago, a fantastic astrologer did my chart, and she said that the older I get the more I would move into my Leo nature.
I figured I would see it, often felt more like the cowardly lion than aking of the world, brave as heck lion.
But, lately, I notice a change in myself. I am way more brave than I give myself credit for. I do things that are very hard, but good for me (something I may write about later), and I am working on editing my novel as if it is the easiest thing I have ever done, bravely slaying scenes and rewriting them.
Moving into my star sign is a real great adventure, and I love that I am brave enough to roar now :)
This doesn't mean that the cowardly lion doesn't show up at times. That's ok. I can live with that. I can hide if I want to, as long as I do step into the sun too.
