People born under the sign of Leo are natural born leaders. They are dramatic, creative, self-confident, dominant and extremely difficult to resist, able to achieve anything they want to in any area of life they commit to. There is a specific strength to a Leo and their “king of the jungle” status. Leo often has many friends for they are generous and loyal. Self-confident and attractive, this is a Sun sign capable of uniting different groups of people and leading them as one towards a shared cause, and their healthy sense of humor makes collaboration with other people even easier.
Leo belongs to the element of Fire, just like Aries and Sagittarius. This makes them warmhearted, in love with life, trying to laugh and have a good time. Able to use their mind to solve even the most difficult problems, they will easily take initiative in resolving various complicated situations. Ruled by the Sun, Leo worships this fiery entity in the sky, quite literally as well as metaphorically. They are in search for self-awareness and in constant growth of ego. Aware of their desires and personality, they can easily ask for everything they need, but could just as easily unconsciously neglect the needs of other people in their chase for personal gain or status. When a Leo representative becomes too fond and attached to their achievements and the way other people see them, they become an easy target, ready to be taken down.
Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, is the central sign of the fiery triplicity. Ruled by Sun, there is nothing complicated about Leo – they are the king, the boss and the leader. They know that they are far better at organizing everyone else’s life than they are capable of. And if they accept it, all will be well. They are affectionate, enthusiastic, cheerful and optimistic people. Their mission is to ‘bring the sunshine into other people’s lives’.
It is a valuable quality, and they should not neglect it. Surprisingly, they are often sensitive and get hurt very easily. Not that they will demonstrate it. If they are treated unjustly, they will show great magnanimity. But if they get really angry, they will put on the full regal act at once. They will ‘mount the throne’ and make it clear in no uncertain terms that the impertinent fool who has been stupid enough to consider himself as equal, steps back to his proper place.
Whatever may be the person’s background, a Leo will always have a kingdom of some sort. They have a pronounced flair for drama. They can create scenes in order to be the center of attention. Their theatrical mind reflects in positive and lively ways too – in dressing splendidly, doing things in a big way, organizing outings, and altogether making sure they get the best of everything – as well as providing the best they can for others. They are extravagant; money slips through their fingers. They are not only adept at organizing other people, they themselves are hard workers, and can set a good example.
People born in this sign have obvious faults. They can be intolerant, pompous and over dogmatic. A Leo should make a habit of reassessing their opinion as often as possible. They should try and make use of the natural, spontaneous, warm-hearted charm, which they undoubtedly possess.
LEO MAN IN LOVE
This is a man who falls in love in an incredibly warm and cuddly way. Just think of a tamed lion, purring and making room to sit in somebody’s lap. Love will only strengthen his ego and he will truly enjoy the chase of his “prey”. Since he belongs to fixed signs of the zodiac, he might have trouble letting go of relationships that are outdated, holding on to shreds of emotion instead of searching for a new partner. This can take away a lot of his energy and he should always be free to feel the same warm and cuddly sensation that makes his heart jump. He is the king after all, and the true king has the biggest heart.
LEO MAN SEXUALITY
Leo is one of the most potent men of the zodiac, but he enjoys the creative and inspiring act of sex. He doesn’t need a partner to share the same sexual relations with every day, but someone who will allow experiments and be secure enough to show their sexuality as openly as he would. Although he sticks to some traditional values, he still likes his partners strong and willful, fiery enough for the passion to flow. He will never settle down for a woman with low self-esteem who thinks of sex as a routine or an obligation. He needs to be surprised, seduced, and he wants someone to speak of his abilities, strengths and enjoy sexy communication as much as he does.
LEO MAN IN RELATIONSHIPS
When he finds himself in a relationship, he will do anything to show how gallant, confident and powerful he is. This is not something that he does out of insecurity, but something that he finds necessary to seduce the subject of his desire. He will show off, make you laugh and be the biggest hero you could have ever hoped for. If anyone is waiting for Prince Charming, he might be found in Leo, for he feels and acts like royalty. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be taken quite literally and he can act as if he is a spoiled prince, lazy, bossy and thinking that he is the center of the Universe. However, he might still win you over by pointing out his incredible attributes, but turn out to be quite a disappointment if you hope he will become less selfish.
CAN YOU TRUST YOUR LEO MAN
In most cases, Leo man can be trusted, except when he simply doesn’t care about you. This is not the man that will spend his time in guilt, not secure about his decisions and choices of partners. He will lie only if he doesn’t want to deal with the boring consequences of his words, never out of fear. In general, this is not the man who is afraid, and this is what can make him such a faithful and trustful partner. Still, there are times when he doesn’t see the point of honesty because he doesn’t really want to get too attached or close to anyone. If you want to see if he should be trusted, don’t obsess. Instead, simply ask yourself – do you feel loved?
DATING LEO MEN
Every princess we have read about in fairy tales searches for a man with the Sun in Leo. There is nothing strange about it and he is, after all, the king of the zodiac. Dating him can be just like dating the king – classy, sparkly and pompous. If you are a shy, tender soul, you will probably not enjoy the gestures of love that sometimes seem like he only wants to look good, not even to other people, but to himself. It is very important for his partner to build the intimacy during his outer performance, and this can be quite a challenge. The best thing to do is finish each date with a quiet conversation about him. The more you are interested in him, the more he will be interested in you, and this will end up in actual sharing.
UNDERSTANDING LEO MEN
To understand Leo, you would need to know his weaknesses and they are sometimes hard to come by. He is not that secretive, he just doesn’t want to talk about things that are emotionally difficult, and he would rather spend time in his pool of personal satisfaction than swim in negative emotions. The most important thing to remember about Leo is that his seemingly superficial nature is not superficial at all. The depth of Leo reaches to a point in which no compromise has to be made for everyone around him to be happy. He has a difficult task as a leader and a ruler, and he should be respected because of the responsibility that follows no matter if he is aware of it or not.
LEO MAN LIKES AND DISLIKES
Leo is openhearted, grand in his gestures and easy to talk to. He is comfortable to be with, for he will enjoy a relationship full of respect and warmth. He has this beautiful hug that no other sign has. On the other hand, he can be bossy, pretentious and self-involved to the point in which it is impossible to be his partner.
HOW TO CHOOSE A GIFT FOR YOUR LEO MAN
Choose something that will accent his manly physique or character. He wants to show his big shoulders or his great hair. Pack your gift in warmth, in orange, yellow and red colors. Stick to things with value that show how much you respect and cherish him. Buy him a golden watch or an expensive pen. He will like thoughtful gifts just as much, but only if you truly understand his core and are able to pick out something he always dreamed of. Play with his inner child and buy him a present that can bring him back to childhood or something that sparks his creativity.
LEO WOMAN IN LOVE
When this woman falls in love, her world starts to revolve around her partner. It is often said that Leo is self-involved, but when it is a Leo woman, her Sun is in Leo and it often represents the man she loves rather than herself. She will give everything to this man, her heart, her Soul and body, without exception. Her love is warm and passionate, she will want to fight, make up, make love and be in someone’s embrace all they long, for as long as her personal liberty isn’t endangered.
LEO WOMAN SEXUALITY
When it comes to sexuality, Leo woman is one of the most liberated women in the zodiac. She loves her body and the way she moves, and she usually won’t mind a couple of pounds over her usual weight or the underwear she wouldn’t exactly show off to enjoy sex. There is no reason for her to feel threatened or insecure, and although this can sometimes be the source of certain problems, usually it is quite refreshing for her partners. She understands sex as a natural part of life, and unless she has been badly hurt or shamed in her prior relationships, she will probably be confident, imaginative and creative.
LEO WOMAN IN RELATIONSHIPS
She is not always easy to be with. Too much commitment is always followed by too many expectations, and she can be extremely committed. In other cases, she can be uninterested and focused on herself and her career, or other people in her life. Only when she is deeply in love will she become this mellow, warm lioness, providing soul food for her partner and their family. When she knows what she wants, there is no way to change her mind. We wouldn’t exactly call her stubborn, more like strong-willed. She cannot be bent to someone’s rules or needs and she will rarely be flexible for her partner’s irresponsible timing and any lack of respect.
CAN YOU TRUST YOUR LEO WOMAN
You simply know if she loves you or not. There is not much else you will need to trust her completely, because her big, warm, beating heart wouldn’t let down someone she loves. When you climb high enough on her priority list, the truth will come as natural as day and night. It is important to understand that all Leo representatives are here to shine a light on things and make them clearer, not blur them or taint them with lies and deception.
DATING LEO WOMAN
This is a woman that will want to be treated well. You could say she is high maintenance, but this really depends on her background and the way she was raised. She wants to be able to shine, to show herself with her new partner to the world. She wants to dance and spread the smell of joy, smiling and simply being happy. She needs to feel the joy of life and forget about things that make her tired and sad at her workplace, or anywhere else. Dating her can be challenging because she has enough energy to move mountains, expects the same from her chosen one, and demands that her partner takes care of their appearance all the time.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR LEO WOMAN
She is often misunderstood for grumpy and unsatisfied, as well as classified as too loud and outspoken, as if there really was such a thing as “too outspoken”. The problem in understanding this woman comes from her fiery nature and her inability to keep her mouth shut and think things through. But does she really have to? The sign of Leo is there to shine a light on us, and if that means facing us with things that are not so comfortable with, isn’t it a good thing? If you are not willing to stand up for yourself and let her show you what might need to be changed, you shouldn’t be in a relationship with this woman at all.
LEO WOMAN LIKES AND DISLIKES
She is someone with a great smile, the inner sense of Self, a big heart and the ability to make anything happen. Somewhere deep inside she understands that there is nothing that cannot be done and this can inspire, motivate and solve issues that stand in someone’s way. She can also sometimes be unaware of her partner’s feelings, as if she was ready to burn everything around her. She can be destructive, impose her opinions and make decisions that are not hers to make.
HOW TO CHOOSE A GIFT FOR YOUR LEO WOMAN
There are two main types of Leo women. The first believes in natural beauty and you can recognize this type because they never wear nail polish, makeup or dye their hair, and they dress in natural colors. The second type is the woman who seems to glow in the dark. She will wear shiny, golden things, a lot of jewelry and dye her hair blonde or red. Any one of these lionesses likes to be given value, so assess the type and think about things that would show that she is the center of your world. Buy something that shines and something with value, material or other. Take her to the theater, organize her surprise birthday party and if you have a chance – walk with her down the red carpet. Tell her to look her best and take her out to the night of surprises. Make the world revolve around her for once, and she will return the favor as soon as tomorrow.
