Let’s learn about the loyal Leo. Many have fallen under the spell of Leos at some point in their lives. With a quick wit and magical charisma, the Leo seemingly rules over all. They tend to take the lead in many things including conversation and business. Leos take great pride in their accomplishments and appreciate social recognition. The Leo host will throw a perfect party and be an exceptional host welcoming everyone like a member of their family. When describing the Leo you can sum them in in three words: LOUD AND PROUD. A few key things to remember about a Leo: they will always take a stand even when everyone else runs away; can read others intentions discreetly and accurately; defend those who can’t defend themselves; they have no problem being vocal about things that they can’t stand (duh); can spot bullshit from a mile away so don’t even try lying to one and reverse psychology doesn’t work on them. A few things you might not realize about Leos: they worry a lot ( a lot!); they tend to neglect their own happiness even though they seem self-centered; their ego comes from insecurity not narcissism and they can quickly go from being outgoing and the life of the party to shy and moody, even antisocial. Always be patient with a Leo. They have others best interests at heart even if you can’t see it right away. They have a plan, I promise. *( for those who don’t know me, can you guess by now that I’m a Leo? I know of what I write on this one)
Top 10 Careers for Leos according to horoscopes.com are: Actor, Cardiologist, Goldsmith/Jeweler, Publicist, Spokesperson, Theatrical Agent, Reality Show Personality, Hairstylist, Sales Consultant, and Motivational Speaker.
A Leo at work may seem like a handful because they always seem to want to be the center of attention regardless of the subject matter. Don’t you dare leave a Leo out of the loop or you’ll hear about it. With a strong sense of responsibility, Leos make the best supervisors or project leaders. They have an immaculate track record of being able to read the talents of weaknesses of coworkers so they will know just how to use each member of the team in just the right way. The worst thing you can do is to ask a Leo’s opinion and not take it! If you decide not to go with their ideas, make sure to tell them in person and let them down gently.
If you find yourself working for a Leo boss here are a few things to note. Be sure to keep a positive vibe at work, a Leo boss hates nothing more than sour, negative employees; make your first impression the best of yourself and what you have to offer ( this goes for any job really) because rarely does a Leo change their opinion of people they meet. They read you instantly so put your best foot forward and finally, make sure to handle all disagreements privately.
As much as a Leo loves attention, they crave someone they can take care of and spoil. Being with a romance-aholic may be a bit overwhelming at times. A Leo may seem jealous and possessive but that is just their way of protecting the one they love. And forget the dating head games. That is an instant turn off for Leos. They are not shy about what they want and don’t want and if you can persevere through the beginning stages of dating, a Leo’s love will be the most loyal and unforgettable love that you could ever have.
Best Matches: Sagittarius, Aries and Gemini
Worst Matches: Capricorn, Taurus and Scorpio
A Leo father is the foundation of the family. He is completely devoted to his wife and kids. Affectionate, kind and supportive, a Leo dad will work hard to build up his children’s strengths and minimize the weaknesses. A Leo mother is the queen of her home. Armed with incredible ambition and highly motivated to do everything she can to provide the best for her kids, the Leo mom is open and honest to a fault. She encourages creativity in her children and has high expectations of them to succeed. Seemingly childlike at times, the drama of a Leo mama is unrivaled but will pass quickly. A Leo parent will be strict with their children and demand excellence at all costs. An if you have a Leo for a parent, make sure to thank them once in awhile. Genuine appreciation is all they really live for and can be the difference in our relationship.
Be ready to weather the storm of getting to know a Leo. Once you make it to the other side you will have complete loyalty and someone who always has your back. And your front. For all the generosity and care taking that comes from a Leo, if this is not reciprocated the Leo will be planning to make an exit from the relationship. It must be an equal friendship with you caring about them as much as they care for you.
Inside Their Head
The Leos worst fear is being ignored. They spend a lot of time planning and worrying that if they don’t feel appreciated for all their efforts they would rather lay down and die.
