*What's Your Sign: Leo

(Previously, Cancer)

Leo is another Hercules-related constellation. Hercules's first assignment as a kick-ass hero was to kill a lion with an impenetrable hide that was creating havoc in the countryside. Hercules strangled it and used its own claws to skin its hide. Zeus made a constellation of the Lion so he could boast about his son at dinner parties.

You forgot to mention how he got the lion passed out drunk and high on poppies first. Herc was such a below the belt fighter.
