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.
The home of a Leo man is akin to a male Lion’s den. He can be extremely territorial about protecting his space, his family, and his possessions. Most comfortable when he knows everything in his domain is his, this cat does not make the easiest roommate. He can be generous when sharing things but, unfortunately, he may lend or gift items that aren’t his to give.
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.
Outside of finding a way to be the boss, some Leos just find it easier to work alone, especially in artistic or creative fields. With traits that make them self-driven and motivated, they can access great inner endurance when their focus is on realizing a personal vision with their art or passion.
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.
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.
Translate this kind of courageousness into gift-giving, and you’ll find that while a platinum credit card isn’t required (though it sure couldn’t hurt), the best way to show your Leo man that you’re mad for him is to do something so memorable, so completely unforgettable that he’ll be regaling dinner parties with stories about it for years to come. Tailor it to be so uniquely him that the gift truly couldn’t mean anything to anyone else. You may have to listen carefully for months while he expounds about all his favorite things, or do a little sleuth work to come up with something that shows him that you’ve really been paying attention and that you truly do care.
Want room on the sofa? Better invest in a wraparound sectional, because this Lion loves to sprawl out atop the cushions. Don’t be surprised to find him there, waiting for you to peel his grapes and pop them into his gaping jaws.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A Leo can appear to be a bit conceited and ostentatiously vain, loving to preen his fabulous mane, so hair-care products, beard oil, or a session with a great barber will all speak to his desire to be the prettiest lion of them all.
When a Leo struts into the room, with his catlike lazy swagger, he might seem the picture of nonchalance – but you can bet that he is secretly gauging the effect he’s having, and taking note of who’s noticing him. When a Leo man is really feeling himself at a party or gathering, he may bounce all over the room like Tigger, bopping from conversation to conversation, riling things up. Don’t be too shocked if he ends up doing cartwheels or break dancing in the middle of the dance floor.
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.
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.
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.
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?”
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.
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.
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 Leo man and Taurus woman are both stubborn with strong opinions. The Bull isn’t one to always allow the Lion to win arguments and debates, and she’s more of an introvert than attention-seeking Leo. If these obstacles can be worked out, however, the relationship will be powerful.
To understand Leo, you would need to know his weaknesses and they are sometimes hard to come by. He is not that secretive, he just doesn’t want to talk about things that are emotionally difficult, and he would rather spend time in his pool of personal satisfaction than swim in negative emotions. The most important thing to remember about Leo is that his seemingly superficial nature is not superficial at all. The depth of Leo reaches to a point in which no compromise has to be made for everyone around him to be happy. He has a difficult task as a leader and a ruler, and he should be respected because of the responsibility that follows, no matter if he is aware of it or not.
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.
An astrologer can create detailed astrological charts from specific information on the date, time and place of your births to assess compatibility and help you develop strategies catered to your unique personalities that may help your love blossom. Other expert tools and techniques may include tarot cards, clairvoyance, telepathy, runes or numerology. Your information will be private, and your astrologer will be very discreet.
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’.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
