Leo, this is a surprising way to gain power...The King of the Jungle is a natural leader. You love clawing your way to the top! But as the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, if you want to lead people, you must be willing to follow them.
Not every situation needs a top predator. Only by sharing the leadership role can a group make full use of the collective strength of its members. Water Signs know that life is fluid. Roles change. Sometimes you lead and sometimes you follow.
The key is in learning how, as a Fire Sign. Practice following by focusing your attention on another. Ask questions or ask for clarification (this could mean admitting you're wrong, which can be hard for Leo!). And follow the advice you receive if your instincts tell you to.
