The Leo Personality:

There is nothing difficult or complicated about the Leo personality: they reign supreme and provided we pay them the adulation they consider their birthright, peace will rein in our lives and on the planet! Once they perceive that this is understood they will express affection, be loyal and demonstrate unlimited generosity. Generally, there is nothing mean or nasty about the Leo nature.  Life is usually done on a grand scale as they require nothing but the best. Typically they are extraverted and if accompanied with a sense of occasion, with them at the centre, they'll love it! However, remember that should they lose their temper it will be done with equal aplomb!

Leos have incredible will power and usually achieve their goals because they possess focus, persistence and tenacity. They have good organising and business skills and can achieve considerable success in the corporate world. As they can see the bigger picture they often make great strategists.

Having such a strong sense of drama Leos can become part of the arts, particularly theatre. Alternatively, they may just love going to the theatre to immerse themselves in a creative environment that allows for escapism where their spirit can take flight.  It is important that Leo's have some sort of creative outlet and often it comes through activities with children as this enables them to connect with their inner child so they just let go and fun! They can have a rollicking, slapstick and wicked kind of humour that adds to their appeal and magnetisim. 

They express themselves powerfully and in a forthright manner. Intellectually well endowed they can usually see the overall picture and alternate views while remain fixed in their own thinking. Good or bad? It depends on the situation, however if they disagree remember it's no good flogging a dead horse.

In love their feelings are strong, deep and passionate. They are loyal and expect the same. They are wholehearted, generous, and spontaneous and expect others to be the same.
