A Leo

...I have a feeling is going to run me a merry chase. This pregnancy has been so much different than with DS. DS's pg was a breeze, he was a very easy baby and is still a pretty easy kid outside of the normal 3's. Not so much with this one. Bad MS, bad sciatica and just overall aches and pains that I never experience this early with DS. Now I know a lot of that is because it's a 2nd pg. Also, on the u/s, he was nothing but constant motion. Took the u/s tech a lot long to get some of his internal organs because he wouldn't hold still.

Now I've never been one to believe in zodiac signs and things like that but so far it seems to be pretty accurate for DS (He's a Libra) and this one will be a Leo.

So I did some looking online and found out what a Leo was like and here is what I found! Leo is from 8/10-9/10 based on the new astroligcal chart.

The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, self-confident there is no such a word as doubt in their vocabularies, and they are self-controlled. Born leaders, either in support of, or in revolt against, the status quo. They are at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism and innate courtesy of mind bringing out the best of loyalty from subordinates. They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and using all their energies, creativeness and resolution to get it, as well as being certain that they will get whatever they are after. Their followers know where they are with Leonians. Leonians think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers, their practical hardheadedness and ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend on them. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity.

On the whole they are powers for good, for they are strongly idealistic, humane, and beneficent. They have powerful intelligence and are of a broad philosophical, sometimes religious, turn of mind. Those who are devout may become very obstinate in upholding traditional beliefs and will cling tenaciously, but with complete sincerity, to practices and doctrines which liberal thinkers regard as absurdly out-of-date. These will be found as the 'lions' of industries, and in the forefront of the cutting edge of technologies.

Their faults can be as large in scale as their virtues, and an excessively negative Leonian can be one of the most unpleasant human beings imaginable, displaying extreme arrogance, autocratic pride, haughtiness, and excessive hastiness of temper. If jealously suspicious of rivals, they will not hesitate to use cunning, lies and trickery to discredit them. Self-centeredness, greed for flattery, boastfulness, and bombast, pomposity, snobbish superiority, and overbearing, and intolerant disdain of underlings; to whom they will nevertheless delegate the carrying out of minor details in their grandiose schemes, and from whom they are not above borrowing immoderately if an occasion necessitates it. Any of these can be characteristic of Leo. Add to them a passion for luxury, a lust for power, unlimited sexual lust, and emotional indulgence, and a character emerges that no one would want to know either in public life or private. But their pride may go before a fall, as uncontrolled impetuosity is likely to bring them low. Fortunately it is rare that a Leo is so undisciplined as to give way thoroughly to this list of vices, and their tendencies to them are usually balanced by an innate wisdom. Those who are afflicted with them also have the intelligence it takes to consciously and actively overcome them.

In professional life they do well at any vocation at which there is room at the top. As politicians they are content with nothing less than a powerful position in government. In business they may be the chairman of their company's board, or at least directors or managers. They are excellent organizers and overseers, often laying the groundwork for new projects. If from the artisan ranks of society they will aspire to become the boss, partly because they are ambitious by nature, partly because they dislike manual labor, preferring to take charge of others doing it. If artistic, Leos can become stars of stage or screen (their bent is serious rather than light drama), maestros as musicians where they will gravitate toward the grand instruments or activities, such as the organ or conducting of orchestras and as painters; anything grand in conception and scale appeals to them. Leo women make exceptionally good welfare workers.

In his or her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. Outgoing, spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness, Leos are more disillusioned than the average if let down by those they trust. They are not good judges of character and are inclined to favoritism and an exaggerated faith in their followers which too often ends in disappointment. They have a strong sex drive and are so attracted to the opposite sex that they find it hard to be constant; they can be so intensely sexual as to become dissolute. They may have numerous love affairs for their love of pleasure and beauty is liable to drive them from one attractive partner to another. They are very much inclined to deceive. Their marriages may fail for the same reason, yet they are sincere and generous to their lovers while love lasts, and will remain attached to their homes so long as it is run for their benefit. They demand service but are incapable of giving it.

I thought the end of Aug/begining of Sept is Virgo not libra... DH is Libra and his birthday is October. lol ... Then again I paid NO attention to the supposed "shift" of the signs that happened recently.

Anyway, DS is a very calm kid 99% of the time, and he's virgo. DH is Libra, whos also pretty calm. This baby will be a leo probably, and like Veronica posted, probably will be more "spirited" lol...

It is interesting to see what the signs say... somethings about mine (Pisces) are very true, other parts of it are way off. I read something about virgo children a while ago (around his birthday) and it seemed at the time to fit DS pretty well.

Yeap - I am a leo too (Aug 12th) and DD is a leo (Aug 6th).

She was the same way. All the u/s appt's we had the tech said - "she is sooo active" and after birth she has been your stereotypical leo. She is a handful to say the least. I am was hoping these twins would be a bit milder. I need a break.

DD1 is a Leo (July 27, it starts on July 23 and goes through mid-August) and she is definitely very spirited! Lol She's my most difficult child, she is very sweet and really a lot of her qualities that are so frustrating I realize are actually very good qualities for her to have as an adult. She is determined to say the least and definitely a little dare-devil! She went on a roller coaster when she was 5 and she absolutely LOVED it Lol (a big one at Six Flags too, she was just tall enough) She's not afraid to try new things like a lot of kids her age too, which I think is a good thing.
That said, I'm glad this one will be a virgo Lol everything I've read says they are compatible with capricorns...which is what I am and I think I'm due for a child who isn't going to fight me on everything Wink
