The Leo zodiac sign specifically falls between July 23rd and August 22. Leos are under the Fire element, which is the reason behind their fierce and strong personality. The symbol of Leos is a Lion and this is clearly evident with their ability to be rulers.
It’s for this reason that Leos make natural leaders. They’re ambition and persistent, and they will lead their team in the path they see fit. Leos are also controlled by the sun and the same way, they see themselves as the center of everything.
This is why Leos are normally the life of the party and they have the tendency to be attention-seeking individuals. The world revolves around them, and they’re clearly aware of this. They’re confident and secure individuals, and their self-esteem is evident when you’re around a Leo. There’s just something about the way they carry themselves that screams confidence in it.
However, a Leo’s confidence has a catch. They try they hardest to seem confidence to hide every ounce of their insecurities and flaws. If anything, Leos, just like anyone, have a lot of insecurities but they don’t like showing this side to others.
They only show their insecurities and flaws to the people the love the most. For everyone else, Leos seem like such a self-centered, attention-seeking individual that brings so much confidence the moment they walk into a room. That’s a Leo, in a nutshell.
Leos are also known for their determination and enthusiasm, and this shows when they’re trying to go after their career goals. Leos aren’t the type to just settle for whatever is available, but they actively go after what they want, no matter what the odds may be.
They are decisive and they know what it is exactly they want for themselves. Their determination and ambition is intense, just like any other Fire sign. Leos can also be known as bossy because of this personality trait of theirs.However, their bossiness comes from their spirit and determination to succeed, no matter what it takes, and that means bringing the people necessary in their success.
Similar to any other Fire sign, they have a dominant and strong personality and it’s one of the first things you notice first in a Leo. They’re fierce and courageous, which is probably why a lion represents a Leo, since this specific animal is known for their fearlessness. In the same sense, Leos will stop at nothing to go after what they want.
With their confidence and fearlessness, they’re pretty much invincible in going after what they want. This is what makes Leos the perfect leaders. To be able to lead, you need to be decisive and brave, which are two traits that a Leo has. They don’t waste their time conflicted in between decisions, afraid of stepping on someone else’s approval or afraid of making the wrong mistake. They normally know exactly which path to take and their courageous nature leaves them no time for regretting their decision.
Leos are naturally sociable, extroverted and adaptable so despite their outgoing nature, they wouldn’t hesitate to hang out indoors with their friends and family. The moment a Leo enters the room, expect that they’ll be responsible to bring life into that place.
It’s part of their charming personality. Without a Leo, the fun hasn’t started yet- not even close. Most of the time, you’d find the Leo off to fun experiences and adventures. They’re naturally adventurous and it shows in their courageous spirit.
In addition, Leos are extremely loyal which makes them an amazing friend, lover and family member. There’s nothing they wouldn’t do for the people they love. In a relationship, the likelihood of a Leo cheating on their significant other is almost impossible because of their loyal and honorable nature.
Leos also love spending money. They find pleasure in having a high status, and this comes in buying the latest iPhone or getting into the latest trend. Leos value their status and it shows with where they spend their money on. They don’t just spend for the sake of spending it, but they spend it on something that’s worth it.
They don’t really care much for their expenses, as long as it’s pleasurable to them. However, don’t mistake this for a Leo being too materialistic. It’s just their way of life and they find security and stability in spending money on all sorts of things. In terms of their status, they also care for their physical appearance.
If it’s a Leo woman, they’re most likely to have the latest clothes, bags, shoes and to top it off, their makeup consists of high-end brands. As said, they aren’t materialistic but this comes from a need to be as confident as they can be. If it’s a Leo man, they’re most likely to indulge in gadgets, and the latest devices- anything that can increase their status.
With their confidence and dominant personality, this may come off as selfish and neglecting their loved ones’ needs. However, Leos have one of the biggest and warmest hearts of anyone in the zodiac. Furthermore, they’re natural romantics, but they don’t like showing it.
Despite their ambitious nature, all they’d want is a partner to share all their successes in life. They may be natural born leaders, but this paths gets lonely for the Leo if it’s for a long period of time. In this case, Leos should learn when to reduce their dominance, especially when they’re around their loved ones to avoid seeming ignorant to their needs and harsh.
When it comes to a romantic partner, as loyal as a Leo may be, they may be scared of commitment from time to time- this varies from each Leo. Their fear of commitment may come from their extreme loyalty and they fear that when they invest in any relationship, their partner won’t be as loyal as they are.
However, when they’re sure they have a partner that isn’t going to betray them, a Leos trust and heart is theirs forever. Leos are natural romantics but they rarely show this to anyone in fear that this makes them look weak and vulnerability, Leos like to be known for specific traits, and vulnerable and weak isn’t that. As mentioned above, their status is significant to them and the last thing they want is to be seen for their flaws and imperfections.
One of the best things about being around a Leo is that they naturally bring out the best in you. Since they’re confident and fearless, this trait of theirs tends to rub off on you and it gives you the motivation to do better in life.
When you’re around a Leo, you become a much braver and confident person than who you originally were before you met them. In addition, Leos love helping others and bringing people up with them. They may be competitive, but it isn’t in their nature to tear someone else down.
They have a good heart and if they know someone deserves to succeed as much as they do, they’ll even help them around in their success. Leos aren’t entirely egocentric and self-centered unlike the contrary. It may seem that way before you get to actually know a Leo, but as you get to know them, you’ll find them to be warm-hearted and loving.
In the career aspect, Leos don’t exactly thrive when someone else in controlling them, which is why managerial positions make the perfect jobs for Leos. They need a career where things are under their control, not the other way around.
With Leos in the lead, great things are to come since their decisions are often based on what they think would be better for the entire organization or company. In this sense, Leos are also naturally creative and engaging which is why their hobbies are usually something that’s opposite to their career. If their career is corporate, their hobbies are usually something artistic such as painting or writing. Leos have lots of thoughts and ideas, and they need something to release those thoughts on.
Since a Leo naturally thrives in attention, they don’t thrive in the presence of being ignored or rejection. Those are two things that a Leo doesn’t handle well, especially if that rejection comes from someone they value the most such as a job they really wanted or a person they like. Leos are used to getting all the attention, and rejection and ignorance is a concept they’re always trying to grasp.
Furthermore, they don’t like the idea that they could be wrong sometimes. They may be confident, but they aren’t always right- and this concept is also a brand new concept when it comes to accepting that they don’t know everything. However, Leos value friends that have the courage to tell them whenever they’re in the wrong and keep them in their place. Leos have a big heart, as mentioned, and they treasure inputs even if it’s not always on a positive note. They appreciate traits of fearlessness and braver, since Leos are comprised of those very same traits.
