Leo is the fifth Sign of the Zodiac. These folks are impossible to miss, since they love being center stage. Making an impression is Job One for Leos, and when you consider their personal magnetism, you see the job is quite easy. Leos are an ambitious lot, and their strength of purpose allows them to accomplish a great deal. The fact that these folks are also creative makes their endeavors fun for them and everyone else. It’s quite common to see a Leo on stage or in Hollywood, since these folks never shy away from the limelight. They are also supremely talented and have a flair for the dramatic. Warmth and enthusiasm seems to seep from every Leo pore, making these folks a pleasure to be around. They do love pleasure! It’s the Lion which symbolizes Leos, and the king (or queen) of the jungle is a most appropriate mascot, since these folks consider themselves the rulers of their universe (and the Zodiac at that). Like Lions, Leos tend to be dignified and strong, and it is this sense of their power which allows them to get things done. A Leo on your team is a good thing, since Lions are eager to see their projects through to completion. Putting these folks at the helm is a good thing, too, since the Leo-born are natural leaders.
They may ruffle a few feathers along the way, however, since they can also be overbearing and somewhat autocratic. This may be in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this Sign -Lions are indeed opinionated and set in their ways. That said, they are well organized, idealistic and have a knack for inspiring others. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the center of the universe and the fuel for our being. In much the same way, Leos consider themselves indispensable and the center of the universe, and those who would tell them otherwise had better look out! Lions are outgoing, self-assured and have a tremendous zest for life. So what if the world revolves around them? There are worse role models, for sure. The Lion’s enthusiasm is boundless, and along with that comes generosity of spirit and the determination to succeed. That focus may be construed as vanity and even bossiness at times, but Lions would say ‘No way!’ and continue along their regal path. Regardless of appearance, those born under this Sign can be counted on for their loyalty and sense of honor. They are also decisive, intensely proud and wonderfully romantic. The Element associated with Leo is Fire. Everything about the Lion’s personality is hot, hot, hot. Those born under this Sign are fearless and strong, which may be why Lions plunge in head first and let the chips fall where they may. Thankfully, Leos are dignified enough not to commit too many pratfalls.
It’s the Lion’s unswerving courage that wins so many folks over. If you need someone to lead the charge, call a Leo — and the bigger the project, the better, since these folks love an expansive stage (and the audience that comes with it). While some would take to calling Lions status-conscious, these folks are truly warmhearted and want everyone to be happy. Hey, it’s their kingdom, and happy campers make for a perfect peace. Further, it’s the great gift of the Leo-born to be dynamic, forward-thinking and self-confident. These attributes certainly catch the attention of others, making Leos sought after by both friends and lovers. The Lion’s charms extend to all, even to the children they dearly love. Yes, the pleasure principle is paramount to the Lion, and along those lines, Leos are great at spending money. Lions can’t fathom an uncomfortable throne. Leos also enjoy trying their luck at the tables, so expect to find them living it up in Las Vegas. Come play time, Leos are at their best. Those born under this Sign enjoy fun and games both outdoors and in (and with a group), so expect to find them playing softball, hockey or a game of cards. Lions are also a natural at the gym, where they can show their stuff to a crowd. When the lights are low, the essential Lion comes to the fore, since this beast is 90% fun and 100% romantic. The Leo lover is devoted, creative and almost too hot to handle! Since Leo rules the heart and back, however, overzealous Lions may have to take a deep breath and slow down a bit. You can bet that the Lion’s home will be swaddled in royal purple and gold. The great strengths of the Leo-born are their creativity, idealism and leadership. Lions don’t lack for ambition, either, so they’re likely to accomplish a lot — and have fun while they’re at it. Their warmth and loyalty ensures that others will enjoy the ride as well.
Leo Man Personality: Positive Traits
This aspect of Leo is very bright indeed, for this is a personality very much attuned to the vital life-giving qualities of the Sun.
The typical Leo personality is flamboyant and generous with tremendous charm and magnanimity of spirit which draws people close. The fixed quality of the sign, meanwhile, helps to restrain the Fire element’s tendency to over-exuberance. Leos are also loyal, full of self-assurance and hard-working, being excellent organizers (so long as they are the boss). Leo’s ability to play hard and the value placed on pleasure makes for an excellent companion.
Leo Man Personality: Negative Traits
This aspect of the Leo personality usually emerges when Leo is being ignored, which may result in sulking, or when inferior mortals challenge the divine right to rule. Leos can be very self-opinionated and consequently bombastic and overbearing. One of Leo’s most characteristic traits is pride, and there is a tendency, too, towards pomposity and snobbery.
It can be difficult to spot when Leo is hurt (and this sign is surprisingly touchy): but the sudden drop in temperature as Leo retreats back into regal dignity provides a clue. In long-term disagreements, Leo can also prove to be something of a formidable enemy.
Leos are warm, sunny and outgoing but just love to be adored and looked up to. Those who fail to recognize a Leo’s innate need to be superior may find themselves on the receiving end of a right royal snub, or the victims of typically aristocratic wrath.
Leo Man in Relationship : Boyfriend
The Leo man is known for his magnanimous nature and his warm and generous heart. But he is also a prowler, one of the more sexually active signs of the zodiac. Like Capricorn and Scorpio he is motivated by power. The subtle difference is that Leo assumes success in everything he does, particularly when it involves relationships and love. He can’t bear the thought of rejection so he never even thinks about it. That’s why he blazes his way through life, and that is how he wins.
He falls in love easily, but it will often be subconsciously motivated by the desire to impress his companion. Leos have dramatic tastes, extrovert and extravagant desires, unnerving energy and yet he is so self-opinionated that he can be intolerably conceited and inflexible.
If you have fallen for a Leo man and you want to attract his attention, then you just have to flatter him and turn yourself into a willing audience. In return you will get a real gentleman, who will protect you like a gallant knight and perform great deeds for your sake. Well its not quite as easy as that but you get the picture. Be careful they are very sceptical and will not be deceived easily.
Leo Man in Love
Expansive, generous and caring, Leos revel in love affairs and all things romantic. They are passionate and demonstrative, and like nothing better than spoiling their loved ones.
Happiness knows no bounds for Leos in love. Their big hearts and warm emotions really come into their own when they fall for someone. Then their true Leonine personalities emerge. Because they value love above all else, Leos are naturally faithful, and very loyal. But they can sometimes almost overwhelm their partners with adoration.
They invest all their emotions in their love affairs; but if things go wrong, they come down to earth with a bump. Once a Leo heart is broken, it takes a long time to mend.
Problems can arise if a Leo forgets that he or she is one half only of a partnership, and begins to act in the role of boss. Although outwardly they seem to be bursting with self-assurance and confidence, and often revel in being the center of attention, underneath their showy exterior Leos can be very sensitive, but usually they hate to admit it.
Their fiery feelings and expansive emotions have to find an outlet and they yearn to express their innermost thoughts to their partner. However, they almost always expect an equally heartfelt sentiment to be returned by the loved one.
Full of Passion
Leos spare no expense when courting a new love. They are very demonstrative and loyal, and are almost continually in the throes of passion, remaining very faithful. They only lose their sparkle when love begins to fade.
Leo Man Friendship
Leo persons make noble friends. They draw great qualities to them, and are unstinted in their own giving.
The less exalted types offer the sort of friendship theoretically current in the underworld─ that die-hard variety of loyalty famous for endurance under stress.
The high Leo type gives a completely devoted friendship, that when properly requited, becomes a very fine relationship. The danger to the Leo friend is that unless the other side of the friendship is an individual of equal stature, this times material offerings of over generous Leo, and thus the fine balance, always a part of a successful friendship is hopelessly destroyed. Leo people, in all relationships are apt to give too much, thus despoiling the other side of their just right to be generous.
Leo Man in Career
The Leo person makes a good partner, if he teams up with someone who will allow him sufficient control. He is never willing to take a back seat, and if he is of the high type of Leo, he is trustworthy and capable. In a partnership, he should be the contact man. His personality is usually impressive, and he commands respect. He is dominant and forceful and can always take care of the outside interests of a concern. He has the power to win trust, partly because he is usually very sincere in whatever he attempts. He is a born showman, and can dramatize any business in a very convincing manner.
Personally he is not so easy to get along with. These natives have a wonderfully generous nature, for they will give till it hurts, not only themselves, but everybody else. They obligate people to the point of embarrassment, and do more than their share of everything. Great dissatisfaction is often the result of this unequal division of labor. Their tempers are furious, and they are far too dictatorial.
With the Leo native, the benefits far outclass the faults, provided the type is high and noble.
Leo Man as a Husband
The Leo man fits into the scheme of domestic life quite smoothly. Usually he is a good and very generous provider, desiring his wife and family to shine in the community. He is tremendously proud of not only them but himself, and he wants them to have the best of everything. For himself, he demands the center of the stage, and expects the home life to revolve around him, like planets around the sun. He is very affectionate, loving and devoted in his manner, but he will not tolerate disrespect or insubordination.
The Leo husband is fixed in his opinions about what is due him from wife and children. His love is deeply romantic, and very absorbing, but he considers that he is a law unto himself. Naturally very passionate, (although perfectly not mal in his love nature), if he wishes to seek romantic adventure outside of his home, he does so without scruple. But his attitude toward life is so conventional that he would never tolerate a wife who behaved in a similar manner. She must be above suspicion, and as the Leo men are acute judges of character, and fastidious to a fault, they usually select wives who meet with their high standards of perfection.
The average Leo man makes a fine husband. His generosity, kindness, loving disposition, and passionate loyalty in the big issues of life, plus his really great heart, make him a very safe and satisfying kind of husband for the feminine, clinging type of woman.
