LEO, July 24 through August 23, is the lion of the Zodiac. Unlike the sign it leaves, Cancer, Leo is vociferous and self involved. If you are in love with a Leo, you might as well make up your mind to do it HIS way. His motto is “It’s MY way or the highway”. Leos are strong individuals and they assert their will over everyone in their realm. Leos decide at a very early age that they will be the only ruler in the kingdom.
Leos like to make great gestures and to be seen as a generous person. He likes the perception that he is the go-to person for the answers to all questions. In ancient times the Lion was used to symbolize bravery and courage. A person was said to have a “lion’s heart”.
Although Leo wants to live like a king, he will do it whether or not he has the money. Leo’s have such a strong personality that they overwhelm people into believing they are, indeed, wealthy. Leo is very materialistic. The people that he concentrates on will ultimately be worth something to him on his rise to the top.
A Leo is often prone to vices such a cocaine, alcohol, excess and rarely understands how these vices can be detrimental to him.
As far as being in love with a Leo, the watchwords are BE CAREFUL. Leos do not form close relationships. There will always be a side benefit to any relationship that a Leo forms. Leo’s are arrogant and often hurt the people that love them.
Leos make good military men and politicians. Leo’s like to be in the center of things. Although Leos add a touch of the dramatic, they tend to be fairly straight forward and, basically, “what you see is what you get.”
Leo is a fixed fire sign but if you are not careful close association with a Leo will only get you burned. A Leo’s only weakness is that he craves approval.
Leos love romance but Leos also want to be the center of that romance. If you are in love with a Leo remember that it is all about him. You will be alright as long as you always let him think he is calling the shots.
