Leo is, by definition, self-assured and confident. To others, your self-expression could border on self-promotion and self-aggrandizement, but you know just how deserving you are of admiration.
There's a reason the peacock (yes, and the Lion) is associated with your sign! On your journey toward self-realization, you can seem self-centered and self-important. Try not to trample on others on your way up.
You don't need validation from other people. You have keen self-awareness and aren't prone to self-deception, so you can gain valuable self-knowledge and a renewed sense of self-worth by looking within. (OK, you can take one selfie to celebrate!)
