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.
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’.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
