Leo rules the fifth house which makes sense when you consider that this is the house of playfulness, romance, drama, self-expression, and good old-fashioned fun.
The fifth house also rules playfulness and our ability to engage in life outside the bounds of responsibility and obligation. Leos can work their hinds off, but once it’s quitting time, they know how to have a good time. And when doors of excitement aren’t opening for them naturally, they have no issue knocking a few doors down to create it.
The fifth house is the place where we get to play with drama in all its many forms. Now, if you’ve met a Leo, you know full well that they have a flair for the dramatic—but while this tendency can sometimes get them in trouble, or make them come across like a spoiled brat, it can also be exactly what the moment calls for.
