General personality characteristics

When the heavenly rulers gathered to reward 12 zodiac signs with their courtesies, they must have been in the best of spirits when they approached the sign of Leo, since they were generous to him. Even if they did not give Lev anything but the ruling planet, the Sun, it would be enough to thank them all their lives. But the gods are more than merciful on this day, they made the lion a permanent sign, giving him stability and showing by this their own desire to help the lions on the path to success and power. Then the gods decided that Leo would be a fiery sign, making him energetic, warm, and spiritual. And, finally, the gods agreed to give Lev control of the 5th house of the horoscope, which is responsible for love and theater. But one of the gods was displeased with others, feeling that they spoil Leo. Perhaps the August heat made him irritable, and he cursed Lviv, stating that they would have one weakness in character, which makes it difficult for Lviv to benefit from the gifts of other gods. This shortcoming is extreme vanity and pride. The same god made sure that, being a permanent sign, Leo would be prone to stubbornness. The moral of this story is that Lev can benefit from all his virtues only after he defeats his vain “I” and accepts a bit of humility and humility - the most difficult test for Lviv.

But the Lions are well-equipped with stubbornness to win this battle with himself. They are endowed with intelligence and magnetism that attracts people, but they should not rule over everyone. The lion is often called the royal sign, thanks to a highly developed mind and graceful manners. Their astrological symbol Leo is considered the king of beasts. But, like all rulers, the Lions must learn to wear their crown modestly. They must remember their great sin - vanity.

The sun, the ruling planet of Lviv, gives them ambition and great ambitions, but they should not drain their energy into various abuses.

Leos like to wear the purple mantle of a person occupying a prominent position in society, and arrange receptions, entertain people, treat them with rich food and strong wines. But the Lions should be careful not to become a simple poser because of their love for theatricality. They must accept the fact that in order to reach the top, a person must start from the bottom step, even if he hates dirty work and believes that he is above minor works.

People of this sign are natural leaders and leaders. In fact, the controlling position is what most of Lviv aspires to.

Women of this sign are often attractive to men, but they should not splurge. Otherwise they alienate the person they are trying to attract. Male lions, caring for women, talk a lot about themselves, about their capabilities, and may seem simple talkers.

Male Lions are very energetic, often underdeveloped types of Lions, in a rage, resort to physical strength, engaging in a fight with those who disagree with their firm and unchanging opinion. Underdeveloped female types try to appear fashionable and sophisticated, and thus look flashy, use cheap perfumes and dress brightly and tastelessly.

The people of Leo are warm, friendly and compassionate, but always deep in their feelings. They seem to have a device built in that controls and switches their feelings, which always works at the moment when Leo’s pride is infringed. No other sign can leave the lover with such seeming incompleteness and indifference as Leo.

When the Lions learn to suppress their desire to dominate, to diminish their boasting, and not to get the upper hand out of their excessive pride, they can be wonderful: in this case, Leo deserves the title of "Royal Sign". They can be very noble. When they learn to be democratic in their relations with people, they will see that everyone automatically puts them in the spotlight. Lions must often save a bit of their scenic art for a real performance - their personal life. They need to stop being so impulsive and impetuous, learn to show their feelings and accept the feelings of others. They should not demand so much from others until they themselves are ready to offer as much in return. They need to understand that others do not care so much about how they look in people's eyes. They are less tense and care about how to get more from life. So, the Lions must sometimes leave their view of the perfectionist (a person who strives for perfection).

Psychosexual characteristics

Lions are usually very passionate people. Being a fiery sign, Leo is extremely sensual. Remember, Leo rules the 5th house of the horoscope, which is responsible for love and delight. Lions can easily succumb to their love impulses and become ardent, passionate, with a free attitude to sex characteristic of our age. But the Lions rarely resort to different, wild ways - their pride does not allow it, although the struggle with passion is great and the temptation is great.

Therefore, the Lions are less aggressive than the people of the two other fire signs: Aries, an openly aggressive and romantic and frisky Sagittarius, constantly looking for an idealist. In fact, Leo can become very seductive if he is interested in someone. He always does this: "I want you, but if you don't want me, then I don't need you either."

In Lviv women, this passive temptation has nothing bad, since traditionally a man is aggressive. But if a man - Leo, the king of the jungle, takes a position that forces you to become an aggressive Lioness, then he risks losing his lady forever.

Because of his attitude, "you yourself must come to me" many Lions fail to succeed in life. But do not misunderstand this seemingly indifferent trait of the male Leo character. They are supremely manly, and women are feminine. The Leo Man loves to rule and is very gentle (never rude) and courageous in time of love. Leo always wants to show that he is the most courageous lover. He is deeply interested in whether he meets the sexual requirements of his partner. He usually represents himself as Leo, the conqueror, the real king of beasts. Since he is dearly loving, he will try to please, although it does not take him much time to make the relationship strong and his noble male image to take hold. Only then can he perform certain sexual activities. And if he does this, then he needs the Lioness, his queen, to understand that he does everything only for her, for her pleasure, and that this is not at all in his style.

The lioness can meet the exquisite royal requirements. She may be passive in order to remind her lover that she is primarily a royal woman, but if she finds it necessary to resort to stereotypical practice in order to keep her king, she can become a terrible, wild cat.

Both women and men lions prefer a strong, gentle and long-lasting bond, rather than pure sex. If they enter into relationships with other partners, it is because they do not like the way their real partners treat them. They are looking for new lovers, not just partners. When it seems to them that they have found one that meets their sexual, spiritual, and intellectual needs, they hesitate a long time before they make a final decision and break with old love. Remember, the Lions are constant in their manners and behavior, preferring to stick with the narrow straight path of their old habits as long as they seem unacceptable. Then they change their love finally and completely, not sparing those whom they left behind.

Non-sexual maneuvers

Although the Lions are warm and passionate people, they can please others to accomplish anything. When they try to maneuver with people in their personal, business and social field, they do it imperceptibly and skillfully. Both men and women lions have great patience and therefore can lead a non-sexual strategy that requires a lot of time and effort. They trump and make sure that their royal court is filled with noble, intelligent allies, carrying out their orders. They marry according to the calculation, turn to achieve the favor of politicians, flatter them.

In general, one must imagine that Lviv cannot be bought at a business price. They also will not choose the goods of the second grade. They consider themselves to be a top quality product. They are honest in their actions, and if they demand a lot from people, they are ready to give a lot in return.

How to satisfy Leo

First of all, flatter them often. Making love, Leo pulls time, enjoying. They adore when they are caressed, kissed and said tender flattery. Women of this sign want to hear that their face is the face of an angel, that their body is beautiful, that their presence ignites anyone. The Leo Man also likes flattery. His mistresses get much more if they talk about his manhood and assure him that they did not like anyone so much before, even if it is not true. And indeed, the Lions can not stand even the thought of rivals, their partners must be groomed and pulled. Women of this sign should not spare their wardrobe to create a seductive, feminine image. Anyone who wants to attract Leo, must make an effort to create the appropriate atmosphere, because luxury, intimate, pleasant music weakens the resistance of the most stubborn Leo.

Positive features

A typical Leo is a powerful and noble sign, has great performing abilities. He was born to conquer and see that it was so. He is very attractive to all people and when he needs to achieve a certain personal goal, his charms cannot be resisted.

The sun, the patron of Leo, a powerful ally and Leo do not have to make as much effort as all other signs, Leo will achieve his goals, because people adore him and help him. But Leo should not allow his ambition to make himself miserable and unhappy. Fortunately for all of us, they tend to use their gifts of life in a noble way. They know how to use power, they are very disciplined in stressful situations. Probably they deserve to be kings and queens.

Negative traits

Since the heavenly rulers endowed Leo with so many good qualities, the Leo must beware and not become complacent. They love so much that people join them in their aspirations, that they sometimes do not understand that few people are ready to give up their “I” to please Leo.

Since they always want people to think well of them, they often put on a mask of virtues that they do not really possess, just to be praised. All this is good, if they really assimilate the virtue that has been bestowed, then this negative trait — pretense — can be considered positive. Otherwise it will degenerate into the surface, shallowness. Moreover, the Lions must not succumb to the food of fools - flattery.

Economy of love

Since it is fate, Leo usually reaches great heights, with all their economical rewards. But they rarely negatively use their economic power, especially when they are afraid.

The thought of Leo buying sex and love is impossible, extremely incredible. Lions can enter into a relationship with a person less beautiful, sexy and graceful, and smart as long as the person caters to his desires and provides him with enough flattery and approval, which he so needs to achieve success. Male Lions often feel that their queens should not be as perfect as they are. And women Lions feel that their spouses should not be of the same royal origin. In fact, it has already become the rule that partners of Lviv retain their individuality less than Leo, they feel that the center of attention is only for one person.

Remember: The lion of the cat family. Have you ever seen a cat fulfill your orders?

Most suitable partners

Up to 29.5 years, Leo’s best partners should be sought among the people of Aries and Sagittarius. All three are fire signs. And in these years they are very independent and act on an objective, disinterested basis.

After 29.5 years, the Lions begin to strive for a more sedentary life, more patient relationships and becoming more practical. At this time, they can be compatible with the sign of Capricorn, who, under the mask of the king, can also sit on the throne with Leo, even if Capricorn is rarely so cultured, affable and receptive. A lion can also be compatible with Gemini after 41.5 years, who fascinate Leo with their brilliant intellect.

After 41.5 years, the Lions are already spiritually developed, have become less vain, eccentric, and have reached the top of their intellectual development. Now they find compatibility with the signs of Libra and Scorpio. The combination of "Libra Leo" - the famous astrological duet. Since Libra is always trying to please, and the Lions also want to please them, together they make up a successful and contented "slave-master" couple. The combination of "Scorpio-Lion" is possible only among highly developed types. But when it occurs - beware! Here is the real power, intelligence, creative union - emperors and empresses, not just kings and queens!

Assessment of loyalty

Of all the astrological signs, perhaps Leo is the most faithful. In their young years, the Lions are warm and loyal friends. As they mature, they become extremely loyal and faithful.

In marriage, their loyalty is different, provided that their spouses are lower, go one step behind and rarely challenge their overall concept (image) of themselves. And never humiliate Leo in society. It is so important for them that others think of them that they can quickly divorce their spouse, who constantly confuses them in front of friends and family. Lions may even threaten the power of those who criticize them in front of their workmates.

Questions to Leo

When you realize that if you put up with a lover who does not always please you, does not always flatter you, asks you to look at yourself from the outside (reconsider your behavior), then will you justify waiting for your wonderful sign?

When you realize that pride precedes a fall, and when you fall, do you really fall? There is nothing sadder than a chained king.

Why are you, Lions and Lionesses, so stubborn? But then again, you cannot but be yourself, because of all the children of Earth you know the art of life the best. You are cute children of the Sun!
