Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


My birthday barely makes it in to being a Leo. Lions have had symbolic meaning dating back to the Egyptians and Greeks. According to my research, in Egypt, the lion represented the Egyptian goddess known as the Eye of Ra who is the power that protects the good and annihilates the wicked. In ancient Greece, lions revolved around protections and they were viewed as guardians of the dead as well as guardians of palaces, doorways, shrines and thrones. They were also ultimate protectors of hearth and home. In Buddhism the Buddha sits upon the lion as a throne of consistency, strength and wisdom. In alchemy, the symbolic meaning of lions is associated with the highly idealistic and prized attributes of gold.

The symbolic meaning of lions in England where it is a common emblem of English sovereigns because of these lion-like traits:
- leadership
- strength
- royalty
- courage
- honor

As a zodiac symbol - those with the sign of Leo likely possess some lion's personality traits such as:
- Intuition
- Self-confidence
- Fiery
- Territorial
- Controlling
- Passionate
- Generosity
- Loyalty

Those born under the sun sign Leo are fiercely independent, confident and in control. They are creative and influential forces and have the internal power to make positive (or negative) changes in their lives and the lives of others around them. They are very loyal people, and will defend friend and family honor to the death.

So now that you know more about the symbolism behind this majestic beast take a look at these regal items...
