Leo’s ruling planet (star) is the Sun, and it’s element is fire. Leos have big expectations for themselves as well as others, and are not happy if these expectations are not met. Like Lions, Leos enjoy being at the ‘top of the food chain’. They prefer to be highly regarded in terms of their professional and working lives. Leos like it when people come to them for help as it makes them feel important.

Ego is certainly important to a Leo, and it helps them to dictate where they live and where they work – their high expectations must be met. Many Leos enjoy being ‘influencers’, and like adding a spark to us normal people! Both whilst working and playing, they enjoy the living a glamorous lifestyle, regularly jetting off to other nice parts of the globe.

An inherent sense of pride means that Leos hate being at the butt of a joke. However, this also has its advantages, Leos generally don’t ridicule others, because they don’t like someone else putting them down. Some Leos can hit real emotional lows, but they usually have a tremendous ability to bounce back in a short period of time. Their cheeriness helps them to get through the bad times.

Many Leos find it difficult to be patient with others, particularly if things aren’t going their way. Some can be seen as dramatic during hard times, there are a few ‘drama queens’ and ‘divas’ who have Leo as a star sign. Lack of sleep, strains, stresses and sickness can cause Leos to be very crabby. You might not find a Leo too pleasant when things aren’t going to plan!

Leos don’t wait about, they’re always on the move, and fast! They burn the candle at both ends, they put their all into work and leisure. However, Leos must be careful not to burn themselves out; it is essential to strike a balance between rest and action. Their high-achieving lifestyle is something that they instil into their children. This can make them quite demanding parents. On the plus side, Leos love their children to be able to stand on their own two feet.

Most Leos place great importance on their own family. They will be completely unselfish with others, particularly their family. Leos emphasis on family life means that do an impressive job at keeping in touch with members of the family and extended family. They normally know how to strike a healthy balance between keeping in touch and giving people their own space.

Leos are great lovers, as long as you tell them that they are! They like to feel wanted and important, both in their marriages and within their family. Leos that don’t feel significant within a relationship may well start looking elsewhere. However, as long as they feel valued in a household, they’ll probably be there for life!

Most Leos always desire the best of both worlds. Most of them enjoy jetting off to glamorous foreign destinations and staying in equally glamorous accommodation! They are generally quite conventional, but have high standards. You’ll struggle to find a Leo who doesn’t have high pre-set standards, but a few of them do exist.

Leos are good in business, they constantly want to be at the top of their game, and their expectations for their business are no different. Quality, premium products are essential for a Leo’s business, even if it means spending significantly more money to get the very best. Leos take pride in their business and can effectively maintain focus on the larger goals. Leos, remember that achieving a work-life balance will be good for you, not a waste of your time!
