One of the earliest recognized group of stars, with archeological evidence from as early as 4000 BCE, Leo is the 5th astrological sign of the Zodiac and is the symbol of the lion. It comes right after Cancer, just before Virgo and it is opposite to Aquarius.
The symbol consists of an empty circle, from which emerges a line that bends up and turns downwards to the right bearing a resemblance to a lion’s tail. The sign is associated with sun and fire, and belongs to the ones who were born between July 23 to August 22 each year.
