Leo, the Lion, is the fifth sign of the Zodiac and represents those born July 22 to August 22.
Leo had to do with the labors of Heracles. On his first task, he was sent to kill the Nemean Lion. This lion was savage and fearless as he couldn’t be harmed by weapons. After attempting to kill the lion with arrows, which just bounced right off, Heracles wrestled the lion and strangled it to death. He didn’t go away unharmed, though; the lion managed to bite off one of Heracles’ fingers. After the lion was dead, Heracles skinned it with it’s own claws and made some wonderful armor from the pelt and jaw. The constellation Leo is said to honor the bravery of battle between the Nemean Lion and Heracles.
According to Astrology Leo is a fire sign and is considered a masculine, extroverted sign.
Leo Cultural significance
The Nemean lion was a vicious monster who lived in a cave in Nemea. The Lion is usually considered to have been the offspring of Typhon (or Orthrus) and Echidna. It is also said to have fallen from the moon as the offspring of Zeus and Selene.
The skin of the Lion couldn’t be penetrated or grazed by any kind of weapon. His fangs and claws were as hard as iron. That’s why the Lion was considered to be invulnerable. He was sent to Nemea to terrorize the city with his roaring. People and flocks were attacked and killed by the Lion. The first of Hercules’ twelve labors was to slay the Nemea lion. While searching for the lion, Hercules fetched some arrows to use against it, not knowing that its golden fur was impenetrable. He found and shot the lion. He discovered the fur’s property when the arrow bounced harmlessly off the creature’s thigh.
Once dead, the great Nemea lion was placed by Zeus between the signs of the zodiac.
During the fight the lion destroyed Hercules’ armor and bit off one of his fingers. Finally, Hercules stunned the beast with his club, and using his immense strength, strangled it to death. After slaying the lion, he tried to skin it with a knife from his belt, but failed. Athena told Heracles to use one of the lion’s own claws to skin the pelt. Once dead, the Nemea lion was placed by Zeus between the signs of the zodiac.
Leo /ˈliːoʊ/ is one of the constellations of the zodiac, lying between Cancer the crab to the west and Virgo the maiden to the east. It is located in the Northern celestial hemisphere.
