i am very religious and i don't see these signs but i read in a book that those who are born in august from a certain date will have this and i guess i am fact i have also read about hercules-this part what the poster said that the belief was that the lion or leo was placed in the sky after hercules had killed it, is funny for me but i did also read that hercules had to do ten commands from a roman king to be forgiven for killing his wife and children and one of them was to kill The Lion or Leo or Nemean-the giant lion!

heres a pic of hercules wearing Nemean's skin
