When I was younger – like junior high younger – I was obsessed with astrology. I had a copy of Sun Signs by Linda Goodman that I read on a near-daily basis, as I tried to figure out if I was a “typical” Leo. I’d also look up the signs of all of my friends to analyze them and then see how their signs existed with my own. I even used Sun Signs to try and determine whether or not my sign would be compatible with those of the boys I liked. I guess it was kind of a strange hobby for a 13-year-old and it didn’t last too long.
While I’m pretty happy to be a Leo and obviously think it’s the best star sign because of my own upcoming birthdate, I’m not a big fan of “showy” Leo paraphernalia. If you’re looking for a subtle gift for your favorite Leo (hint: birthdates fall between July 23-August 22), here are a couple of fun handmade options from Etsy.
