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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?”
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Leo is openhearted, grand in his gestures and easy to talk to. He is comfortable to be with, for he will enjoy a relationship full of respect and warmth. He has this beautiful hug that no other sign has. On the other hand, he can be bossy, pretentious and self-involved to the point in which it is impossible to be his partner.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
