Dates – When are Leo People Born?
Leo is the star sign of anyone born between 24 July-23 August. The Lion is the symbol of Leo and those born under this zodiac sign are brave, strong and steady. Leo is represented by The Strength card in Tarot which shows a woman gently stroking a lion’s head, using her inner strength to calm a wild beast. Leo is ruled by the heart and is renowned for their generous nature, warmth and kindness.
Temperament – What are the Characteristic Leo Personality Traits?
Ruled by the Sun and the element Fire, Leo’s are born leaders, dignified, charismatic, courageous, flamboyant and creative. Those born under this star sign leave you in no doubt that they were, literally, just like the Lion, born to rule. Mostly, this is not a problem since Leo’s are good organizers, positive and motivating, but they do have a tendency to be dogmatic and they don’t like anyone to disagree with them.
This Fire sign has a burning desire to be at the center of whatever is going on and they are happiest when they are in charge of their own destiny. Their love of the limelight and their natural flamboyance and creativity means Leo’s make wonderful performers and it’s no surprise that many famous actors and singers, including Mick Jagger and Madonna, were born under this sign. Also, two out of the last three American Presidents – Clinton and Obama – are Leo.
Perhaps part of Leo’s success comes from being a fixed sign – reliable and determined – they do not give up easily. On the down side this can result in missed opportunities as they are reluctant to change.
Leo’s are extrovert, warm-hearted, positive and kind, when they fall in love it is usually forever. Creativity and drama play an important part in the life of those born under this zodiac sign and the ideal is to work in an environment that allows your creative talents, your love of the theatrical and your personal charm to shine.
Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Leo?
Big-hearted Leo sun sign with their good looks, charm and exuberant love of life is pretty hard to resist! When Leo walks into a room, everyone else feels a little in the shade, so don’t be surprised to find this zodiac sign acts like a magnet to the opposite sex! When Leo falls in love, they do so without reservation and that can sometimes be a problem. They give their partner their whole love and attention but, they expect to get the same in return.
If they don’t, they are easily hurt and can be resentful and a little aggressive. Leo’s tend to see their partner as an extension of themselves and they like to control the relationship by taking all the decisions. When things don’t go their way, Leo will kick up a fuss but, just like the big pussy cat they are, they will soon be rolling over for a tummy tickle!
Good partners for Leo are the other fire signs, the passionate Aries, the fiery Sagittarius and, of course, the hot, hot, hot Leo!
Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Leo People?
Above everything, those born under the sun sign Leo need to exhibit their talents, ideally to an appreciative audience. Like the Lion, Leo needs to be King and to lead from the front – just as that famous Leo, Napoleon Bonaparte did! The ideal career choice for this star sign is anything to do with the performing arts – theater, film, stage – as a director, actor or agent.
Regardless of what career you choose, there is little doubt that your creativity and flair will get you to the top and you are likely to end up running the show. Leo does not perform well in a job where their talents are not acknowledged or where they don’t get the promotions they deserve. Leo’s make motivating and enthusiastic bosses but can be tough taskmasters.
Wellness – What Health Issues do Leo People Have?
Being a high-energy star sign, Leo’s biggest danger is in overdoing things – even exercise! The heart, spine and back are the body areas ruled by this astrological sign. Exercise and a healthy diet is important to maintain a healthy heart and care should be taken to avoid undue stress.
Leo tends to have poor circulation and, as a result, suffers in a cold climate – a good reason to fit in that extra sun holiday! The back and spine are also areas that need special attention, so stretching, yoga and swimming are all good exercise choices.
