Leo’s Ailments: Fevers
Leo’s Strengths: Fortitude
Leo’s Weaknesses: Supplements. Leo always wants to be the best, and can’t say no to a pill, diet, or drink that promises to maximize this sign's potential.
Leo loves the see-and-be-seen atmosphere of a trendy cycling class or barre class, and also finds new workout clothes to be the best kind of reward for keeping and staying motivated. Leo thrives on competition and gets lonely working out all alone. Having a running buddy, belonging to a Facebook fitness group, or working with a personal trainer will help Lions keep their fitness goals on point.
The heart rules this fire sign, and because of that, their mental and physical experience is innately connected. Emotional issues will manifest by a temperature spike and a day spent in bed, and Leos are known for high fevers—often with few other symptoms. Talking through emotional problems, instead of just trying to forge through them, can help tame the Lion’s temperature and help him or her feel better.
When Leos are in a bad mood, everyone around them knows it. They manifest bad moods by snapping at people, being sarcastic, and even spending time solo—which only makes a social Leo feel worse. Here are ten productive ways for Lions to snap out of their mood and get back on track fast:
Chamomile: This soothing herb, whether in a teacup, a bar of soap, or just sniffed, helps Leo calm down and focus on self-care. Chamomile is key for breaking those frequent fevers as well.
Lemon balm: Whether it’s in a soap, shampoo, lip balm, or just smelled, the cheery scent of lemon help Leos focus on their internal optimism and move forward, even during a crisis or a bad day. This herb helps cleanse the digestive system and improve circulation, which is key for this sign's intense lifestyle.
Tarragon: This herb helps Leos focus on the connections that bind them to others, reminding them that no one, not even a Lion, is an island unto themselves.
Aloe vera: This cool, healing plant can help temper a Leo’s fiery personality.
