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.
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.
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.
Leo males are among the warmest and most loving of the entire zodiac. They’re extremely generous and enjoy showering loved ones with all kinds of gifts, usually for no reason at all. The Lion is usually happy and upbeat and likes to make others happy, too. He tends to gravitate toward people with positive attitudes and wastes little time on those who don’t share his inherent enthusiasm. It’s not that he dislikes such people; it’s just that he doesn’t understand them. His attitude is “Why be down and depressed when life is so wonderful?”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You may be wondering why Pisces was listed as a good sexual partner for Leo guys? Without going into too much detail, Pisces is a zodiac sign that is all about pleasure and service. It’s just a natural fit for Leo people.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Leo man will appreciate the intelligence and sense exploration of the Aries woman. Both are extroverts and will have a full social calendar. The only problem that might arise has to do with image. The Lion wants people to respect and admire him, but Aries doesn’t care what others think.
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.
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.
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 […]
As an aside, I am mentioning my sign not because Scorpio’s are “better” than Leo (or any other sign). Instead, the disclosure is meant as a way of creating transparency so that when material is offered on Leo men – you know it came from a genuine place.
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.
Figure out how he likes to be stroked (behind the ears or under the chin – but use those adoring lips again!), and in no time you’ll have him rolling around in ecstasy like he’s just found the catnip mother lode.
On the down side, Leo is very jealous and possessive. He must always come first in your life, even before your children. He might not want to share you with the demands of your career. The Lion can have an explosive temper when he feels that his “possessions” or his territory are threatened. Even harmless flirting is a no-no with the king of the jungle.
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.
Once a Leo man commits to you in a relationship, he’s going to be extremely loyal and fiercely protective. However, because Leo men crave attention, they also can push boundaries by being overly flirtatious. If you are a possessive sign, such as Scorpio or Cancer, it’s important to keep this in mind.
Leo men personalities are much like the sun. They are big, bold and naturally attract attention. Unlike other signs who at times struggle with revealing who they are (aka water signs), Leo guys have no problem in this area.
The Virgo woman may need to stretch a bit beyond her comfort zone to make a relationship with a Leo man work. Leo is loud and boisterous, while Virgo typically is quiet and subdued. Virgo is a perfectionist and is often critical, which the Lion simply cannot handle. She’s humble and modest and may find Leo much too full of himself.

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.

To get the attention of a male Lion, shower him with praise. If he’s telling a joke, laugh. If he’s relating some daring narrative, be spellbound. Compliment him in some way: his looks, his fashion sense, his sense of humor, his expertise on a subject. It doesn’t matter so much what you praise him for, as long as your praise seems sincere. Once you begin dating, always look your best. A male Leo will see you as an extension of himself, so he’ll want you to be a positive asset. Use the Lion’s love for sensual pleasures to your advantage by dabbing on a bit of expensive perfume and wearing a classically elegant dress. When it comes to marriage, never try to dominate a Lion, and never let him doubt your fidelity. Your gentle kitty cat will bare his fangs and claws in either scenario, and turn into a roaring beast! The Leo man thrives on constant adoration and devotion, which let him know that he’s the center of your universe. Keep the romance alive by surprising him with candlelit dinners, love notes and unexpected small gifts. Play his favorite sultry song sometimes during dinner, and hang on for the fireworks for dessert!
