Leo- July 23- August 22
Animal- Hawk
Herb- Ginseng
Planet- Sun
Element- Fire
Number- 5

Astrology & Geometry: Leos are considered to be energetic, creative, generous, and warm-hearted. Leo is the fifth house of the Western Zodiac, which presides over leisure, enjoyment, and creativity. The number five is represented with two five-pointed stars overlapping the hawk, pentagonal shapes, and five-leaved ginseng sprigs.

In Celtic Astrology the Hawk is associated with the sign of Elder for those born November 25- December 23.

Zoology: Some species of hawk will migrate in flocks, utilizing warm wind currents and updrafts. These drafts enable them to cruise long distances without flapping their wings, resulting in faster travel and more efficient energy usage.

Herbalism: Ginseng grows across America, China, and Korea and has been used to stimulate physical energy and mental activity. * The oldest documented medicinal usage of ginseng was in 196 C.E. in China.

Folklore: In Egyptian and Greek mythologies, the hawk (or their close relative, the falcon) was associated with solar deities Ra and Apollo. The sun, mythologically and scientifically, is a source of creative energy, warmth, generosity, and growth.
