The Leo man is the king of the zodiac jungle: a regal lion of a man who never fails to be the centre of attention in any situation, be it social or professional.
When Leo enters the room, with his feline face, he may seem like an indifferent image, but you can bet he's secretly gauging the effect he's having, and taking note of who's noticing him. When a Leo man really sits down at a party or gathering, he can bounce around the room like a tiger, moving from one conversation to the next, riling things up. Don't be surprised if he ends up doing cartwheels or breaking dancing in the middle of the dance floor.
Although usually well-meaning, Leo has a marked tendency to be something of an insufferable spectacle: they love to be the life of the party, and if that doesn't happen organically, they will always find a way to shift the spotlight in their direction with some kind of bombastic interjection or interruption. Energetic, cheerful and a little childlike, Leo's are great fun to be around, because they love to be alive and will find a way to share their enthusiasm and joie de vivre with whomever they are hanging out with. Their vibrant, sun-dominated and charismatic personalities are magnetic and extremely attractive.
Finding yourself basking in the gaze of a Leo man can feel like being in a ray of sunshine, but beware, being bathed in that warmth and focused attention is addictive, so watch out for the moment when their attention wanders elsewhere. The shadow they leave in their wake can feel very cold. A Leo is a wonder to be around and an inspiration to anyone who wants to learn to live out loud.
About the Leo
As we said, Leo is a king of the zodiac. This sign dominates the horoscope, as it does the jungle.
A Leo is very strong and confident, and loves when he is the centre of attention. That is why Leos have many friends.
They have a really good and healthy sense of humour; they don't like to offend and humiliate people.
Loyalty and commitment to the people he loves are characteristic of a Leo who stands for life and never changes.
Sometimes, due to too much self-confidence, a Leo can leave the impression that he or she is arrogant and unapproachable.
A Leo will respect you if you deserve their respect. Leo is the main sign in the group of Sun (or Fire, according to the interpretation of a zodiac) signs.
His "co-workers" in this group are Taurus and Sagittarius. So, the assumption is that a Leo would be better off agreeing with them. No no. Too much sun can burn and that's not good.
Leo needs someone strong, but still tender enough to calm him down. The sun has the greatest influence on the characteristics of this sign.
A Leo radiates with positive energy and is therefore a favourite among his friends. Because of that, Leo is predestined to be a leader, or a king.
The bad side of a Leo
We already said that lions are very strong personalities. When they set a goal, they are determined to achieve it and will not hesitate to use various tricks to succeed in their attempt. Leo is not overwhelmed by anything, he may not be fierce, but he is very courageous, which is a characteristic of a true leader.
That is certainly a good thing, but sometimes Leo can overdo it. If his negative sides prevail, Leo can be terribly uptight, arrogant and self-sufficient. If Leo has problems, that's the greatest thing in the world.
He simply likes to make a mountain out of a molehill. A Leo simply does not know how to fight. He always makes noise without any need and should therefore compensate for the lack of specific arguments. Only a Leo knows best what is good for him and does not like it when you want to be his advisor.
