Leo is ruled by the element of Fire, making them warm individuals who are inviting and fun to be around. They love life, enjoy laughing alone or with friends, and enjoy having a good time. Life is all about celebration for them, and there will never be a dull moment when you’re friends with a Leo. They tend to take the lead when complicated problems or situations arise, and are excellent problem solvers, always coming up with ingenious and inventive ways to tackle current issues. The Sun is their ruling planet, and this gives them a fiery personality, and some sort of an ego at times. But it also means that they have high self-awareness and are in constant search of growth, for themselves and for others around them. They can easily ask for whatever they need, but this means that they can sometimes neglect the needs of the people around them while chasing for material or personal needs. Bravery is a huge part of being a Leo. They can be fearless as a lion, and are always up for a challenge. But they also need a place to retreat when things become too overwhelming, to find comfort and to rest.
Leo and Love
Passionate yet sincere, Leo are very generous lovers who love and respect their partners. They find sharing their feelings easy, but they also need to have a level of independence in a relationship, and all other areas of their love life. However, this need to have independence means that they may start to control small parts of their partner’s lives, needing to organise things which aren’t theirs in the first place, or micromanaging chores around the house or at work. But they are fun to be around in a relationship, and are immensely affectionate. They love physical touch, and will find any excuse to cuddle or kiss their lover whenever they can. Leos need a partner who is self-aware and has the same values that they do. They also need to be on the same intellectual level and be able to have scintillating and fascinating conversations with one another. In a relationship with a Leo, expect to be spoiled with gifts and spontaneous surprises. But they also expect the same royal treatment in return, as well as many compliments to massage their own ego.
Leo and Friends/Family
Leos are very loyal friends, and are very generous, likely showering them with gifts and words of encouragement. They are committed to all of their relationships, but especially with friends and family members. They have a need to help others, and are always there when you need a helping hand, no matter the cost to themselves. Reliability is a strong suit of being a Leo, and they will always be on time for girls days out or to accompany you to an important appointment. Rarely alone, they regularly host celebration dinners and parties, bringing together everyone in their life into one large group. As a friend of a Leo, you need to be able to keep up with their pace of life and energy. Even though they will do anything for family and friends, they are not the first thing that Leos think about. They generally turn inwards and become independent from a young age. This doesn’t mean that they don’t love and appreciate them though.
Leo and Career
Being ambitious, creative and highly energetic, Leos work best in careers which allow them to be their own boss, or lets them have more leeway and not so much control from supervisors or managers. They will not be happy for long kept behind a desk, and need to have a job that allows them to express themselves and to enact a certain level of control on their part. They put in lots of hard work, and expect the same in return from their colleagues. As well as leadership roles, jobs which give them artistic freedom are also ideal, for example: acting, painting, or singing. Job roles which suit Leos well include: teacher, politician, artist, entrepreneur.
Leos are brave yet generous, and love to be independent whilst also having a huge circle of friends.
