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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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’.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
