Mythology

 


The sign of Leo stems from yet another of Heracles 12 trials. Leo of course represents the Lion of Nemea, which was Heracles' first trial. Any weapon couldn't defeat the lion. Heracles eventually battled the lion hand to hand. In remembrance of the grand battle, Zeus placed the Lion of Nemea amongst the stars.
