Wink Its TIME TO RETIRE the "big hair" stereotype of LEO

I noticed a lot of these books were written back in the day, like in the 70s or 80s, so it describes a lot of outdated fashion trends and styles that donít even apply to today. And I think itís people from those era who like to say it, or someone whoís read an astro-book from that era or a person from that era to perpetuate it.

How many people do you know walking around with permed and teased hair with gallons of hairspray without it looking like it was from a glamour shot from the 80s. Everyone literally dressed like that.

Like people have long hair oooh shocking!

I agree, but then there is Robert Graves.

I donít think thatís big hair. Many males who have wavy voluminous hair have that, and itís typical.

Re: Its TIME TO RETIRE the "big hair" stereotype of LEO

I think the "Leo equals big hair" stereotype is more about the amount of hair Leo ascendants and suns tend to have in general - unless time/Saturn runs its cruel fingers through it.

I'm a rising Leo, and I was a proud member of the big hair club in the late 80s and early 90s.

And while I don't tease my hair to the nth degree anymore, I really don't have to because I have thick hair that turns into a lot of thick hair if I just let it do its own thing.

It's because of the "Lion's Mane" regarding the Sign's avatar.

Are you aware of the sexual dimorphism of lions?

Thatís like saying Leo people have large fangs and are carnivores. If we take it literally then Leo Males have long mullets (another outdated hairstyle), and the females are bald or unimpressive.

Unfortunately a lot of things that look good causes a lot of hair damage. Your hair is profusely thanking you

Virgo is a "maiden".

Aries and Taurus have male avatars.

Don't take it literally, when it comes to gender.

What other animal has as impressive a head of hair as a male lion?

Well, a male lion is the premier big hair avatar. And that avatar is the stereotype for the Sign known as "LEO".

Do you want to change the avatar for the Fixed-Fire sign to one that DOESN'T have big hair? If so, what avatar do you think would be most appropriate?

Re: Its TIME TO RETIRE the "big hair" stereotype of LEO

Modernized images:

Aries = Feminists (butch haircuts)
Taurus = Fat pride activists (French fries)
Gemini = Internet trolls (pink lipgloss)

Cancer = Nicki Minaj (big butt)
Leo = Reality TV (Oxygen TV network)
Virgo = Emotional labor (50s misogynistic illustration of an angry wife)

Do you think Donald trump has big hair?
I donít. Itís thinning due to old age. But itís just about average.

Pictures of him when he was younger shows him as average.

Obama had big hair or what? He had none.

Donald had Dennis the Menace hair when he was a kid. Full, but not "big".

Except, Dennis had Ruff, his shaggy dog, and Donald apparently wasn't allowed a pet.

I found this article on Leos. Heavy on stereotyping:

https://i.thehoroscope.co/leo-rising...n-personality/

Hmmm...gotta say, it fits Trump pretty well, except for the hair. He is obsessed about his hair, even though it's nothing to be proud of.

Well how much of that is the media turning him into an icon/living legend/villain?
If you talk to him in person without all of the pretense (or presidency) I bet heís just like your average conservative boomer.

He's not a conservative. He's a sold-out Liberal in Conservative clothing.

Happened to a lot of boomers.

Pisces = Rich or wealthy (Epstein's private island).

Stereotypes are so falsely wrong, but they always contain a grain of truth.

B00mers are not liberal, they tend to support free market neoliberalism and laissez-faire capitalism, a system that makes the rich a lot richer and the once large middle class fall down into poverty, esp. in a developed nation like the US under Reaganomics and the Bush family's favoritism of China and the Saudis, and corporate-sponsored economic globalization like the EU and NAFTA (Latin America).
