The Personality Traits of a Leo
Just like the lion, Leos are usually natural leaders who are comfortable taking the primary role in any situation. They tend to be dramatic, creative, full of self-confidence, and full of personality, which makes them very difficult to resist. When they put their mind to something, they will do everything within their power to achieve their objectives.
At the same time, they are generous and loyal. While they may be leaders, like a lion, they need a pride, and enjoy being with others. They are able to bring diverse people together and lead them towards a common goal. Furthermore, they do this not only through strength of personality, but also through sensitivity to others and an understanding of how to motivate and direct.
As a Fire sign, Leos are warm-hearted, they love life and try to make the most of every moment. However, they are not frivolous; Leos are able to apply their significant mental prowess to any situation to find solutions and ways of moving forward. Leos will always try to be self-aware and prevent their egos from getting the better of them. However, this does not always come easily and at times, it may result in the neglect of others around them. Furthermore, when the ego does win and a Leo losses sight of others, they then become vulnerable to attacks from others.
Just like the Sun, Leos’ ruling celestial body, Leos are full of warm energy. They have a strong aura that never fails to make an impression and they are more than capable of lighting up a crowded room. They are full of generosity and they have large, open hearts that draws others towards them.
This makes Leos very easy to like and Leos return this with genuine care for those around them. They are friendly people who seek to make others feel comfortable in their presence. As a result, they are often at the fore of friendship groups and will have no problem meeting new people and forming new friendships.
However, Leos are continually in search of the best and hold people and life to very high standards. They are prepared to work incredibly hard in order to be able to enjoy the finest things in life, from the material, such as food, drink and clothing, to the emotional, such as relationships.
Just as a lion is king of the jungle and ensures that the other animals know it, Leos are also full of pride and will put effort into always appearing at their best. They may consider themselves almost royal and will be reluctant to let others see their weaknesses or failures. Rather, Leos will focus on their achievements and their best traits, and will have no qualms about telling others about them. They will have very strong convictions that they are prepared to defend, and it is very hard to change their mind about important issues.
Similarly, a Leo will be very comfortable being the centre of attention and they may even crave it. They are comfortable performing to a crowd and they will not feel overwhelmed when the spotlight is on them. However, they do not neglect those in lesser roles or those who may work underneath them. A Leo will stand by his friends/family/employees in almost any situation and will defend them to the best of their abilities.
As a natural leader, Leos are able to identify strengths and weaknesses in others and know how to make the most of them. They will do their best to support others and help them grow, whether personally or professionally. In short, they want to help others be the best that they possibly can.
Of course, there are many risks that come with being such a dominant personality. Just as a lion is protective of his pack, a Leo will be protective of his family and may be quick to become jealous if they perceive someone else as a threat. This can lead to impulsive or aggressive behaviour and even insecurity if they feel that someone else is outperforming them. Similarly, while Leos like to look their best, this can spill over into vanity, and it is not unusual to catch a Leo stealing glances in the mirror at every opportunity.
Leos can also struggle in teamwork situations. They are not great at being part of a team; rather, they need to be leading the team. They enjoy the power of authority, but are not great at taking orders from others. In the same vein, when leading a team, a Leo will struggle with failure. They will do everything possible to succeed and hate to be seen as incompetent by those they are leading. A Leo strives to always be the best and when they fail, they can turn from happy and open to depressed and closed off.
Leos will have a continual battle with their egos. They know that they are highly capable but will often struggle to recognise their own flaws or failings. If a Leo fails then they will instinctively become defensive rather than accept criticism, no matter how it is delivered. It is almost impossible for a Leo to admit to being wrong and even when it has been clearly demonstrated to them, they will not back down and seek to move the blame elsewhere.
Furthermore, as a leader, a Leo can actually be quite lazy, preferring to delegate rather than take on the hard work themselves. A Leo may consider menial tasks beneath them and if they think that a job will not generate enough praise, then they will simply refuse to do it and make sure that it is entrusted to someone else.
Overall, a Leo is in constant conflict between their natural leadership skills and abilities, and their pride. They are highly capable people who can achieve great things, but need to be wary of letting success go to their heads and alienating others at the same time.
How Leos Treat Love and Relationships
Leos are a Fire sign, meaning that they are passionate and sincere and are not afraid to show their emotions. When a Leo falls in love, they will assume the role of leader in the relationship and will still have a need for independence. However, they will also be completely loyal, very generous and full of respect for their partners. A Leo’s partner will need to be understanding of Leos’ natural leadership tendencies and learn how to manage them, especially as Leos may try to take the lead in situations where they have no business doing so. This means that Leos should be looking for partners who are self-aware and just as intelligent as they are. Leos must recognise that their partners will also need to be free to express themselves and assert their own will; otherwise, they may simply become overwhelmed.
Leos enjoy an active sex life that is full of energy. They clearly understand the difference between love and sex, but they may struggle to see the importance of intimacy and emotional connection in their sex life. This means that a Leo needs a partner who is capable of fighting to reach their sensitive side and teach them the meaning of true intimacy.
Leos love easily, but may struggle to find people who can match their passion. They thrive on every stage of the dating process, from the nerves before a first date to the excitement of sleeping with someone for the first time. However, if their partner does not live up to expectations, this can lead to crushing disappointment.
When it comes to dating, a Leo will love going out, visiting nice restaurants and hitting the town. This allows them to dress up and show off in a way that comes very naturally to them. Leos love to be complimented, and very often, they cannot help but flirt with almost everyone they come across.
There are a number of signs that are compatible with Leos. The Air sign Libra is able to calm a Leo’s fiery temper, and as both love socialising and going out, they will be able to have a great deal of fun together. Leos and Scorpios match each other in intensity and the social aspect of Leos can prevent Scorpios from brooding too much. The combination of Fire and Water signs can result in a truly powerful couple who are able to achieve great things when working together. Aries and Leo can also complement each other well, as they are both energetic, passionate, and don’t think that you can have too much of anything. While the shared appetite can be a huge amount of fun, it can also be very tiring and will require one of the pair to put the brakes on from time to time. While Leos and Pisces may be very different, one fiery and the other slow and ponderous, if a Leo has the patience to truly explore what a Pisces has to offer, then they may be pleasantly surprised by how satisfying a different pace of life can be.
Leos’ Approach to Career and Money
Leos are full of energy and like nothing more than remaining busy at all times. They are ambitious people, full of creativity and optimism, which drives their career forward. When they hit upon the right kind of career, nothing will stop them and they become completely dedicated to their work. As natural leaders, Leos should ideally be their own boss and manage others with as little influence from their superiors as possible. Any kind of work that puts a Leo in a leadership position, be it in the arts, politics, management, or any other field, is likely to be a good fit.
When it comes to money, Leos have a tendency to be irresponsible in their pursuit of the latest trends. Furthermore, they are instinctively generous, which means that they may give away too much of their money to friends in need. While this can cause them problems, it makes them feel good about themselves. Furthermore, thanks to their drive, Leos rarely find themselves out of work, so are more than capable of avoiding financial difficulties.
Despite this, at work Leos are not driven by money. Rather they are motivated by a genuine passion for what they are doing and when in the wrong job, they will very soon become depressed. Furthermore, their passion will often cause them to go above and beyond what is expected of them, and they may lose patience with team members who they perceive to not be working hard enough.
Therefore, Leos can be difficult to work with and they will need to be aware of this fact if they are to be truly effective leaders and realise their full potential. Furthermore, they also need to make sure that they give their team space to express ideas and give those ideas proper consideration. On the other hand, they are excellent at motivating others and providing the big picture for others to fill in.
Leos want to be the best at what they do and they also want recognition for being the best. They want to be seen and heard on a job, but this doesn’t mean that they are only suited to high flying city jobs. Leos can also make fantastic teachers, where they are able to motivate their students. In short, a Leo will thrive at the front of things, but must always be aware of those they are leading and learn to take what others have to say on board.
How Leos Respond to Friends and Family
Leos have a fiercely independent streak, which can make them appear somewhat forgetful about friends and families. However, they are also extremely loyal people, so while family may not always be at the forefront of their minds, they will do anything in their power to help when needed.
In fact, Leos are truly generous and faithful people who are committed to those that are close to them. They love being able to help others and will do so even if it means great personal sacrifice. As leaders, they are quick to attract people, and they have the energy to welcome many into their group. It is rare to find a Leo alone as they thrive off interaction with other people. However, they may find it hard to find friends that can keep pace with their energy, which can result in many superficial friendships and fewer true connections.
This means that Leos often find themselves feeling slightly bewildered. They are quick to reach out, happy to form new connections, and rarely shy, but may not understand why others do not respond with the same enthusiasm. However, once they do, they are happy to become truly close and they will commit vast amounts to the friendship, on every conceivable level.
There are many reasons why Leos make fantastic friends. Once a friendship is established, they are always generous, both with their time and with money. They are always the life of the party, so going out with them is a huge amount of fun, as long as you have the energy to keep up. Furthermore, they never completely forget their friends, so even if a Leo is only in contact sporadically, it is not a sign of neglect and you can be sure that they are genuinely happy to be in touch.
It can be hard work being friends with a Leo; it requires dedication, a lot of energy, and an adventurous spirit. However, there is no doubting the rewards that a friendship can bring, and a true friendship with a Leo will easily last a lifetime.
As natural leaders, it is no surprise that there are many Leos in the celebrity sphere. From politicians to actors and musicians, Leos appear all over the place. Discover some of the most famous Leos of our times.
