Sketching a Personality; Or, How I Have fun with Knitting and Astrology
Leo: The Lion
July 23 – August 22
Leo Leo Leo!!!
I’ve been looking forward to writing your profile? Know why? Cause you have such powerful traits. And I’m not going to sugarcoat them for you, since you’re so confident you can totally take anything lil’ ol’ me has to say.
People love it when you’re there at knit night. Encouraging, inspiring, energetic and exciting, you infuse the drive and desire in others to try some new knitting trick, or tackle a pattern that might be challenging.
And you love to be loved (though, who doesn’t, right?) The admiration you can see reflected in other’s eyes just makes your day.
You’re attracted to the finer things in life, and you work hard to get them. You’re the one who’s saved up pennies to afford the yarn for that indulgent baby alpaca and silk sweater. And you’d be able to pull it off, too. You’ve got that regal bearing! People notice when you enter a room.
Buuuut, my lion friends, if you, by some bizarre chance have your dramatic entrance go unnoticed, you might be put into a really rather foul mood. And when you’re foul, the melodrama comes out.
While you are a natural leader, and are really a rather clever person, don’t interfere where your two cents aren’t needed. Leos can be bossy, so try not to tell that knitter that she’s doing her yarn overs wrong. Just wrong! She’s doing them wrong! It’s ok. She’ll let you know if it’s a problem, because people know to turn to you for encouragement if she needs it. That is most definitely where you shine.
Leo rules the heart, so wrap yourself in a beautifully knit shawl or dramatic sweater.
Think fire, and you’ve got the lucky colours for Leo; orange, red, and yellow will make thost big cats purr with happiness.
While your confidence and ability to control situations are a great strong point, try starting projects on Sundays – they’re lucky for you!
