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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
