When you ask someone what their Sign is you’ll get a variety of answers. Some will say they don’t know. Some will say they don’t believe in it. Others will grimace and tell you they are a Virgo, Scorpio, or Capricorn. But if you ask a Leo, they will almost always answer with a big smile on their faces! Yep, they are Leo and proud of it. This Fire Sign is known to be quite self-fascinated. When this trait is expressed in a positive way, the Leo native will put great effort into self-development and personal achievement. They truly wish to be a person of significance, and are often genuinely desirous of benefiting others. When the Leo Ego is immature or distorted, you will see the arrogant, overly showy, self-obsessed type.
Strangely, even Leos who are “jerks” tend to have a way of making friends and influencing people. Most Leos aren’t jerks, of course, but often unwittingly antagonize more retiring personalities just by being their Big Bad Selves. Although Leos crave attention, they are less concerned with what others think of them than more self-critical signs. On their best days, Leo’s are magnanimous rulers who strive to be their best and bring out the best in others. On their worst days, they can be insufferable tyrants, lording over others and misusing their dominance.
People with strong Leo influences in the birth chart tend to make better bosses than employees. Many lions have affinity for sports, the arts, and working with kids. In general, they do best when they have some kind of audience. This can be family, friends, co-workers, employees, or the public. A Leo without an outlet for self-expression is one unhappy person!
In love with a Leo? Remember to let them be right a lot. Compliments will get you everywhere. If you buy them something, don’t skimp. They need to be center stage, but if you are “theirs” they’ll want to make sure you shine, too. Don’t get mad if they seem to be flirting a lot out in public. They need to do that. But if they really love you, they will be as loyal as the day is long, provided they are lions of good character! Leos get along famously with fellow Fire Signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, and Air Signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. They also seem strongly drawn to Cancers.
