What kind of person is a Leo?
Leo has a captivating personality and a theatrical charisma. They are bold and loving. With a talent for words, they can speak about any topic with great eloquence. Ruled by their big hearts, they are very ambitious. Very effortless about life, their actions are based on their instincts, but they love the praise of others. Their anger is a shield to feel protected from others, allowing them to show less of their vulnerabilities and that they don’t need others to feel complete. With a big presence, they can pass as braggers, because they love to share their accomplishments, but expect the same from others. Leos like to feel important, but not necessarily treated with reverence. They love to celebrate their life as they happily celebrate yours.
Leos hate to be bossed around, they like to be in charge of their destiny. They don’t forget acts of betrayal or abandonment, and their pride won't let them forget. Their sense of honor is their biggest flag, and they do anything to protect it. They don’t like to be told what to do, they can only be persuaded to do so. But even if persuaded, it’s not like they won’t resent you for it not being their idea.
Leo in Love
Leos desire emotion and physicality. They love to be admired, so they need to feel like the sun in your life. That by choice you adore them. Their charisma is enough to attract you, so they enjoy a bit of submissiveness, but just a dash, because they love partners that are quietly powerful, and that will help them achieve their goals. To seduce a Leo, like their social media post, so you can get into their mind or show them a very important piece of art and say that it reminds you of them. Very passionate, Leos love the same enthusiasm in their partners. They are attracted to the same traits they see in themselves. They like confident and influential partners. If you’re into a Leo, just go after it, no apologies. They will do the same for you. They appreciate sophistication and confidence as the perfect combination. Even though on the outside they look super confident, inside they can be very insecure. All their charms usually compensate for their inner feelings. Because of this, they connect with people that tend to be more spontaneous and free than they are.
Leo in Friendship
Generous, attentive, and loyal, Leos are great friends. They want to be loved for who they are, so they value genuine connections and take a long time to engage in one. They usually give more than they receive. Sometimes Leos are not great communicators of their inner feelings, they don’t realize this is the path to a deeper connection, and sometimes deeper connections fail to exist. Leos have to learn how to be vulnerable. Nevertheless, they will treat their friends like they treat themselves: as a piece of luxury. You can count on beautiful spontaneous gestures, and they don’t demand the same. Friendship means a lot to them. And when you need them, they will drop everything off and will be there for you. They are very proud, so if you hurt their feelings, or betray them, they will punish you with their distance. They value their honor and can feel resentment for a long time, they forgive but they don’t forget. If you want to continue your friendship with a Leo, accept their pain and version of what happened and move on.
