Characteristics of a Leo

If you were born between July 23 and August 23, you’re a loyal, confident Leo. Leos are known to be encouraging and generous friends, and are ambitious in most aspects of their lives. A fire sign, Leo is considered masculine and extroverted, and is ruled by the Sun.

Leos are said to be compatible with Sagittarius and Aries, both also fire signs.

If you are a Leo, you share your sign with Evangeline Lily, Wesley Snipes, Jacqueline Kennedy, Henry Ford, Emily Bronte, Amelia Earhart, Tom Barry, Dustin Hoffman, Halle Berry, Mich Jagger, Alfred Hitchcock, John Stamos, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Charlize Theron, Jerry Garcia, Benito Mussolini, Neil Armstrong, Matthew Perry, Sandra Bullock, Patrick Swayze, Madonna, Jamie Presley, Robert De Niro, Bill Clinton, Jennifer Lopez, Peggie Fleming, Andy Warhol, and Christian Slater.

Here are some characteristics that Cancers are normally said to have. Do you have any of them?

Like the lion they are named after, Leos are known to carry an air of royalty about them. Fierce, protective parents, Leos are very warm people who crave being loved by the people they loved—and even by people they don’t! They are also often good cooks as well as gardeners.

Playful and loving, Leos are also very individualistic and creative. Straightforward people, Leos are known to have a “what you see is what you get” air, without deception or mystery. That said, they also love anything dramatic, and are often accused of bringing drama into their own lives. This tendency often leads the Leo to a career in acting or other performance arts as well as public relations.

Leos are very proud people who enjoy being the center of attention as often as they can. They truly love life, and often “burn their candles at both ends” trying to fit as much as they can into their days. Shunning jobs that require a sedentary nature or working alone, Leos like careers that give them a chance to be in the spotlight. Leos may find fulfillment if they choose to become models, painters, radio hosts, athletes, clothing designers, dancers, directors, business managers, chairpersons, event planners and lawyers.

Leos are generally very strong and intuitive, with excellent survival instincts that can carry them through almost any situation. They don’t always make plans, and don’t always rely on logic, either. Leos may often act simply without judgment. Sometimes Leos can get caught up in their need for approval.
