I’ve always been fascinated with Leos. There’s just something about them that draws people near. Maybe that’s why I decided to pen this article; to give you a detailed walk-through of Leo men so that you can better understand who they are.
Two Lions in the same jungle? The Leo man and Leo woman will both want to be ruler, so there will be a constant power struggle. If, and it’s a big if, they can learn to share the throne, the match can result in a loyal, committed relationship.
Leo men are usually easy to spot. If you’re at a party, look for the guy who’s telling jokes or relating some vivid tale to a circle of guests. You might also find a Leo man performing with a local theater group, since Lions crave the spotlight. Leos also frequent ultra-chic restaurants, and he’ll probably be the one ordering a bottle of the best champagne on the menu. Leo males also have an affinity for certain careers, so that might be another good place to start your hunt. Many Lions are lawyers, judges, bankers, or CEOs. Look for a man in a leadership position, and chances are good that he’s a Leo.
All of this goes back to Leo’s ruler, the sun, which is all about magnetism and “pull”. And because Leo is a fixed sign that is resistant to change, those born under this Zodiac know exactly what they want. These are not “wishy washy” people.
If you are frequent visitor of this blog, you know that I enjoy writing about topics that are considered off the wall. Of particular interest to me are psycho-spiritual issues, like astrology and zodiac signs. Let’s be honest – who among us doesn’t occasionally glance at our horoscope online or in the daily paper?
Aaron McBride is a Seattle based freelance journalist. He enjoys writing on men’s topics, outdoor activities, grooming, and wellness. He’s also got a thing for penning pieces on spirituality and astrology. Look for posts that are off the wall and sometimes bizarre.
As a parent, the Leo dad takes fatherhood seriously, and will relentlessly defend and champion the little ones in his pride. Boisterous and fun-loving, this big cat loves to roll and tumble with his kids, and tends to be a terrible tickle monster! Toward bedtime, expect to find the Leo dad reading stories to his progeny, enthusiastically acting out all the characters with funny voices and great dramatics.
True to the Lion symbol, finding and keeping love with a Leo man can seem a bit like going on safariexciting and adventurous, but also unpredictable and intense. Call a professional astrologer to guide you through the wild. They can provide expert tips and advice on what makes the object of your affections tick, how to keep him happy and whether the two of you are compatible on the deepest level.
As a lover, Leo is romantic and sensual, with a powerful sex drive. While you’re dating, the Lion will wine and dine you, be chivalrous and even a bit old-fashioned. If things progress to marriage, you’ll discover that Leo is a loyal, supportive husband and a loving father. He’s not the type to forget an anniversary, birthday or other special occasion, and your family will never do without.
If you are Leo (man or woman), it is important to know that your sign is somewhat rare. Although the numbers are somewhat scattered, we think that only 7% of the world’s population is Leo. There are more men born under the Leo sign than woman for reasons we do not fully understand.
Dogs are thought of for their ability to act as good companions. This is true of Leo signs, who like their canine friends tend to be loyal and focused. To a lesser or greater degree, dogs also can be empathic.
In most cases, Leo man can be trusted, except when he simply doesn’t care about you. This is not the man that will spend his time in guilt, not secure about his decisions and choices of partners. He will lie only if he doesn’t want to deal with the boring consequences of his words, never out of fear. In general, this is not the man who is afraid, and this is what can make him such a faithful and trustful partner. Still, there are times when he doesn’t see the point of honesty because he doesn’t really want to get too attached or close to anyone. If you want to see if he should be trusted, don’t obsess. Instead, simply ask yourself – do you feel loved?
Finding yourself basking in the gaze of a Leo man can feel like standing in a sunbeam, but beware – being bathed in that warmth and focused attention is addictive, so watch out for the moment when their attention swings elsewhere. The shadow they leave in their wake can feel very cold indeed. As long as you can handle their larger-than-life egos and don’t rub them the wrong way, a Leo is a blast to be around and an inspiration for anyone longing to learn how to live out loud.
Saturn insights Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun and approximately 886 million miles from earth. In ancient alchemy, it was considered the first rung on the Ladder of the Planets. From the esoteric […]
A pairing between an Aquarius woman and Leo man can endure with some work. Both signs have strong wills and large egos, but they’ll have a healthy respect for each other. The physical chemistry is usually powerful, but the Water Bearer is often emotionally detached and won’t lavish praise and affection on Leo to the extent he desires.
Known to be pompous and even patronizing when working in groups, the Leo man is extremely opinionated and contrary – which can make for an impressive career in law. The Lion can be domineering and even megalomaniacal in a work environment, so it’s best for this normally benevolent King to command his authority with a strong focus on teamwork and realizing goals together. Leonine men make fantastic coaches for both athletics and acting and excel when working with kids or teens. These charming cats really shine when encouraging others to face – and move past – their fears, and will help uplift scared underdogs with enthusiastic cheerleading.
Though usually well-meaning, Leo has a marked tendency to be something of an insufferable show-off – he loves to be the life of the party, and if that’s not happening organically, he will always find a way to shift the limelight in his direction with some kind of bombastic interjection or disruption. Energetic, joyful, and a bit childlike, Leos are loads of fun, because they genuinely love being alive and will find a way to share their enthusiasm and joie de vivre with whoever they’re spending time with. Their Sun-ruled, vibrant personalities and charismatic personas are magnetic and extremely attractive.
Are you hunting for information on Leo men? Trying to figure out their personality and compatibility? Are you hoping to find out if the Leo guy you are like is good at dating and relationships? Finally, are you curious about what Leo men are like in bed?
The Leo men poll below is designed to let you identify your personal experience with this sign. While not designed to be scientific, the results may help you to better understand how your fellow Leos see themselves.
First, you need to know that I am not a Leo but instead, a Scorpio. So you may be wondering what qualifies me to write about Leo? Well, in a nutshell, water signs (like Scorpio) hold certain abilities that allow us to intuit psycho-spiritual information.
A Leo man loves anything outrageous, so keep in mind that if you want to impress him, you must be prepared to do something grand. He’s seen it all before, had kingdoms laid at his feet, you know – so what he really wants from you is nothing less than, well, your whole heart. On a silver (no, better make that golden) platter. Your “heart” means your authenticity, your radical vulnerability, and your willingness to show up 100% for love and all that it can offer.
If given their druthers, Leo males prefer to be their own boss. It’s not that they don’t like working for others. Instead, because of a passionate entrepreneurial spirit, they like doing for themselves.
The differences between the Pisces woman and Leo man can make for some excellent chemistry. The Fish is perfectly happy to let the Lion have all the attention, and because of Pisces’ passivity, she’ll never try to dominate her Leo mate. The Lion will make the Fish feel safe and loved, and she’ll reciprocate by providing a comfortable home. The only problem that might arise is Leo’s extroverted nature, Pisces would rather stay at home than be in crowds.
It is no coincidence that Leo is a sign that begins towards the end of July – around the same time that the sun’s heat is most intense for most of earth’s upper hemisphere. In scientific terms, this is a period known as the summer solstice.
Leo men make for passionate and playful lovers who crave the warmth of companionship and the fire of an intense, focused intimacy. For Lion men, sex is incredibly important, and they express themselves through touch. Be prepared to engage in some pretty heavy public displays of affection with your Leo – because he’ll want not only to hold hands but to pet and be petted pretty much constantly. A notorious flirt, lascivious Leo likes lots of attention – so if he’s not getting it from you, he may go hunting for more interesting prey.

Money and Leos have a complicated relationship, as it tends to fall through their paws like water. They love to make grand gestures and be big spenders, even when they don’t have the actual cash to back it up. They can be a bit delusional about their credit scores and can end up easily in debt from overspending wildly. That being said, Leo men always seem to have cash when it counts and can be abundance magnets. If they play their cards wisely, everything they touch seems to turn to gold.
Empowered by sheer energy, Leo men have the ability to hypnotically make others fall in love with them by merely being in their presence. This may seem like hyperbole and over the top but it also happens to be true.
A dedicated gourmand, Leo men love to eat fine food, even if they don’t particularly relish preparing it. A fabulous multi-course dinner at a well-regarded restaurant is a special treat, but only if it’s somewhere that he hasn’t already been a thousand times before. Leos prefer the unusual, so go with Burmese or Paraguayan fusion over staid and basic country cookin’.
When he finds himself in a relationship, he will do anything to show how gallant, confident and powerful he is. This is not something that he does out of insecurity, but something that he finds necessary to seduce the subject of his desire. He will show off, make you laugh and be the biggest hero you could have ever hoped for. If anyone is waiting for Prince Charming, he might be found in Leo, for he feels and acts like royalty. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be taken quite literally and he can act as if he is a spoiled prince, lazy, bossy and thinking that he is the center of the Universe. However, he might still win you over by pointing out his incredible attributes, but turn out to be quite a disappointment if you hope he will become less selfish.
Later in this article, I’m going to give you a detailed breakdown of Leo symbols with key information about this Zodiac sign you may not know. The material has been infused with wisdom from the ancients, using various spirit animals to highlight key traits.
Choose something that will accent his manly physique or character. He wants to show his big shoulders or his great hair. Pack your gift in warmth, in orange, yellow and red colors. Stick to things with value that show how much you respect and cherish him. Buy him a golden watch or an expensive pen. He will like thoughtful gifts just as much, but only if you truly understand his core and are able to pick out something he always dreamed of. Play with his inner child and buy him a present that can bring him back to childhood or something that sparks his creativity.
Lastly on this point – Leos men are good with money. While they are sometimes accused of spending lavishly, the truth is most Leo males much prefer to sock away money for a rainy day. In this way, they are similar to Capricorn men.
Every princess we have read about in fairytales searches for a man with the Sun in Leo. There is nothing strange about it and he is, after all, the king of the zodiac. Dating him can be just like dating the king – classy, sparkly and pompous. If you are a shy, tender soul, you will probably not enjoy the gestures of love that sometimes seem like he only wants to look good, not even to other people, but to himself. It is very important for his partner to build the intimacy during his outer performance, and this can be quite a challenge. The best thing to do is finish each date with a quiet conversation about him. The more you are interested in him, the more he will be interested in you, and this will end up in actual sharing.
The mythical sexual powers of Leo are legendary. Because a phoenix is known to rise towards the sun, it channels sexual energy in the process. Many Leo’s “soar” in an effort to sexually please their mates.
Love can be tricky territory for a Leo man and Scorpio woman. Both the Lion and the Scorpion have dynamic personalities, and both are extremely jealous. Scorpio, like Leo, thinks a lot of herself and doesn’t enjoy praising others, which of course, Leo craves.
Much of what follows is based on hours of research, coupled with interviews that I’ve personally conducted with Leo guys. While you may read about this sign elsewhere, much of what you’ll see is not based on astronomy, astrology or ancient spiritual teachings.
And to be clear, I’m not an astrologer. My goal isn’t to get you to spend money on a “reading” on Leo men or read your tarot cards. In truth, I genuinely enjoy writing about these topics for reasons that I don’t fully understand.
Leo has a huge dose of self-confidence and craves power and attention. He wants to be in the spotlight, among a group of adoring fans. The Lion is also a natural leader, and others often look to him for advice and solutions to problems. He’s always more than ready to accept these challenges. He has an insatiable passion for life and revels in the finer things. He’ll almost always choose the best restaurant, the best hotel and the best automobile. He’s a hard worker, with intelligence and creativity, so he usually has no problem being able to afford such luxuries.
It is the enormous power of the sun, which the Greeks referred to as Helios, that gives men born under the Leo symbol such magnetism. And this makes sense when you consider that our sun has one of the biggest magnets known to mankind.
This is a man who falls in love in an incredibly warm and cuddly way. Just think of a tamed lion, purring and making room to sit in somebody’s lap. Love will only strengthen his ego and he will truly enjoy the chase of his “prey”. Since he belongs to fixed signs of the zodiac, he might have trouble letting go of relationships that are outdated, holding on to shreds of emotion instead of searching for a new partner. This can take away a lot of his energy and he should always be free to feel the same warm and cuddly sensation that makes his heart jump. He is the king after all, and the true king has the biggest heart.
If you are interested in learning more about Leo men and other signs, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the book: Astrology Made Simple. It’s a great resource for beginners and for folks who are just interested in learning more about their zodiac.
A Leo man’s taste in home furnishings tends towards the extravagant and unusual, but with a shabby insouciance that comes from the expectation that there will always be enough money to replace things eventually. Picture a deposed sultan’s desert tent, with worn and faded rugs, still glowing with a faded glory. Everything in his space is comfortable and aesthetic, but it can be a hodgepodge of eras and styles. He sees no issue with wildly mixing art and decor from a variety of cultures and time periods, and tends to be a collector who delights in creating a mish-mashed visual goulash on his walls and surfaces.
Leo men are drawn to leadership roles in the workplace. It often happens that, even when a Leo is not in charge, people will turn to him for the answers. Frequently, male Leos are treated this way from an early age, which can result in some entitlement issues.
You see each of the 12 zodiac signs has its own home, dispersed throughout the astrological universe. Within each “house” are various traits and magical powers. In the case of Leo men, we see the gifts of pleasure and creativity.
Even though the Leo man and Cancer woman are very different, each offers what the other needs. The Crab has no desire for the spotlight and is more than willing to turn all the attention over to the Lion. She’ll also allow him to be the leader and provide a warm, cozy home for her mate. In turn, Leo will give Cancer the love, security and stability she craves.
