Characteristics of Leo

Leos need to be expressive and develop creativity.  As a natural leader you don’t often do well in situations where you have to take orders from others.

You flourish in work where you can use your fiery enthusiasm and creativity.

Like the lion you are brave, intuitive, head-strong and willful.

Known to be charismatic and spontaneously affectionate , you have a kind and generous heart. Your warm, generous, loving and senstive nature make you loyal partners – although you don’t easily share this with others.

You love to do things with style but can sometimes be melodramatic.  You don’t have patience for things that are too complicated, involved, or boring.

Though you know many people and love to mix, there is still a side of you which stands aloof and keeps you standing out from the crowd.  You get along with others but tend to follow the formalities when it comes to friendship.

You like to receive attention and hate being ignored.  If you are ignored or go unrecognized for some contribution you have made, you feel hurt.  Being seen and appreciated is important to you.  Like the lion you like to be seen as royalty.

You can have a tendency to be vain & conceited with a mindset that you are a prima donna.  At these times you can be childish, dictatorial and overbearing as you want to be in control. Becoming obsessed with your inflated self-importance can become a problem.
