Not many people know that the lion, Nemean in the legend of Hercules is the lion that represents LEO in astrology. In the epic, Hercules had 12 labors to complete, and the first one was to kill Nemean. Nemean was a fearsome beast that terrorized the land.
He was not only more fierce and larger than the other lions, but his skin was impenetrable. Hercules wrestled the lion with his bare hands, and strangled him to death. He then removed one of it’s claws to skin him, and used the skin as a cloak for protection. Hercules 2014 was released on July 25, 2014….the second day of the Sun being in Leo.
