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.
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?
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.
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.
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 Gemini woman and Leo man both love having fun and experiencing all that life has to offer, but it may still be a bumpy road for these two. The biggest problem in this relationship will likely be the fickle nature of the Twins. She’s a natural flirt and often finds it difficult to fully commit to just one man, and Leo won’t stand for this.
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.
The Leo man and Sagittarius woman will have a lot of fun together, but a long-lasting relationship may seem beyond their grasp. Sagittarius may be too much of a flirt and a free spirit for the Lion to handle. Also, there may be a constant struggle over the limelight because they’ll both seek attention from others.
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.
The number one way to infuriate a Leo is to ignore him. He will amp up his bombast and turn his charisma meter up to eleven – but only for about five minutes or so. He’ll soon lose interest, like a cat who’s grown bored of a mouse that plays dead. Are you compatible with your Leo man? Find out here. To lure this big cat toward you, amp up your inner sparkle, be amazed by his dashing fabulosity, and let a steady stream of adoring compliments spill from your lips.
Leo is one of the most potent men of the zodiac, but he enjoys the creative and inspiring act of sex. He doesn’t need a partner to share the same sexual relations with every day, but someone who will allow experiments and be secure enough to show their sexuality as openly as he would. Although he sticks to some traditional values, he still likes his partners strong and willful, fiery enough for the passion to flow. He will never settle down for a woman with low self-esteem who thinks of sex as a routine or an obligation. He needs to be surprised, seduced, and he wants someone to speak of his abilities, strengths and enjoy sexy communication as much as he does.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Capricorn woman has her work cut out for her if she’s determined to make a love connection with a Leo man. Leo will see the Goat as cold and unfeeling, and Capricorn will think the Lion is attention-seeking and shallow. Fights about money will likely erupt. Capricorn is a penny-pincher, while Leo has extravagant tastes and is prone to splurging on luxuries.
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.
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?”

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.
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I’m sharing this with you because you have the right to know who is writing this material and by extension, what their star sign is. If you want to know more about Scorpio and other water signs, click the link below.
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.
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.
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.
When you consider that owls have been historically tied to wisdom, it makes sense that one of the five Leo symbols would be an owl. In fact, wisdom, gained through experience, is a major trait of Leo.
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.
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.
