If you were born with the Sun, Moon, or rising sign in Leo, congratulations… This is one of the most positive, most powerful signs of the entire zodiac.
Regal, dynamic, confident, motivated, big-thinking, magnanimous, warm, going for the gusto – these are just a few words to describe those blessed by this fiery sign.
Leos are driven to achieve. And because it’s ruled by the Sun, the power source of the solar system, they long for power and authority.
So in relationships – and pretty much everything – they like to be in charge. Never try to get one to change, question their intentions, become competitive with them, or doubt their dreams. Or else watch them go off into the sunset – without you…
Yes, flattery will get you everywhere with a Leo.
Their symbol is the lion, so keep in mind they are the “king of the jungle” – at least in their own mind.
It’s a lot of pressure to be a Leo – they long to live a life of greatness.
All they want is to be the best, be admired, never fail, do things with a big splash, and have adoring fans and royal subjects wherever they go…
They tend to compare themselves to the best in the room, the best in their field, and the best in the world… Being a mere mortal doesn’t interest them.
So, they’re looking for a partner who’s very impressive and living life “out loud.”
If they’re headed toward a goal, get on board with their plans or get out of their way… And don’t ever fight with a Leo. There’s simply no winning – if you win the battle, you’ll lose the war, as the saying goes.
Instead, acknowledge their point of view, make them feel understood, tell them what a genius they are, and then agree to disagree.
You don’t have to make “nice” with them – Leos appreciate strength and do NOT want a “wilting lily” for a lover. If you can hold your ground while letting them keep their ego in place and their shiny crown atop it, they’ll love you for it. This king needs a queen, and nothing less.
Leos love to show their affection in big, passionate, romantic displays. Being with a Leo can feel like starring in a soap opera – or a Greek tragedy.
If you give them the attention they crave, they’ll give back tenfold. But ignore them, pay more attention to another, or belittle them in any way, then WATCH OUT – your loving lion may become a roaring beast.
An emotionally healthy Leo will use their resources for the betterment of everyone else – especially those they love.
They’ll be warm, charming, fun loving, and downright irresistible, and do all they can for their partner, make a fantastic parent, and be faithful for life…
A not-so-healthy Leo will demand to be the center of everything… They’ll be bossy and boorish, bragging and brooding, riding an endless roller coaster of their own oh-so-important emotions.
You’ll have to cater to them constantly, reassuring their waning confidence, proving your love by endlessly worshipping their every move… yawn.
A damaged Leo man will be constantly frustrated with life, and hard to please.
They suffer from the “I am special syndrome” in which the laws of physics, needs of others, and rules of the Universe simply don’t apply to them…
A damaged Leo man will be constantly frustrated with life, and hard to please. They’ll feel entitled to prestige, opportunity, money, and the love they crave, even if they’ve done little or nothing to deserve it.
You see, Leos often have more ambition than discipline, and are impatient with the day-to-day tasks of living… and loving. They want to be where they want to be NOW. And they want to have the relationship they want NOW, as well. So, if a Leo man is ready for more than you’re ready for, he’ll take it very hard.
But if you’re both on the same page, get ready to be loved like never before… Not all Leos are alike.
In fact, there are THREE different kinds of Leos as there are three separate constellations that make up the sign of Leo, and TWO of them are among the very best for marriage and partnership, while only ONE of them is super competitive and domineering.
It’s these signs that reveal the most telling things about your nature and your emotional temperament, and thus it’s these signs that are the most important when looking at how you get along with others…
