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

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?
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
