Here Are 3 Main Characteristics of a Leo:

This article explores the main characteristics that define the Leo zodiac sign. Whether you’re this fire sign or know someone who is, the following information will give you everything you want to know about the firey Leo.

1. Fearless Leader of the Pack

This sign is strong-minded with an ambition and drive unparalleled by any other in the zodiac. If there’s one thing you should know about a Leo, it’s that they have a hunger for authority, and line each of their actions with deliberate focus and passion.

Inspiring and motivating others comes effortlessly, making the Leo sign a skilled leader not only among their friends and loved ones, but in the workplace as well.

Leos thrive best in a position that lets them call the shots.

You won’t find a Leo sign settling for anything less than the top, either. They don’t take being bossed around or dismissed well, and are aggressive and driven in their ambitions to make it to the top. Leos thrive best in a position that lets them call the shots, and won’t be subtle about voicing their thoughts on matters important to them.

If you decide to challenge a Leo’s authority, you better approach them with a well-thought out plan. Their intelligence and intensity is difficult to match, and nearly impossible to overthrow.


2. Loyal Until the End

It’s their deep sense of compassion that will lift your spirits, and their enthusiasm that will re-ignite your zest for life. When you’re part of a Leo’s pack, consider yourself a member for life. As extravagant and vivacious as they tend to be, they deeply value their friendships.

A Leo will not only answer the phone on the first ring at 3 AM after you’ve just had your heart broken, but they’ll arrive twenty minutes later with pizza, a bottle of Jack and very creative plans A, B and C to take the jerk down. A Leo sign friend will stand by your side, through any storm that life brings.

Don’t mistake a Leo’s generosity for weakness . . .

And, their relentless loyalty comes free of conditions. In fact, one of the most special qualities about this fire sign is their innate ability to forgive and move on. They’d rather leave a grudge behind than waste time analyzing, and despite their tremendous sense of pride, they can let it go in the name of salvaging an important friendship.

But don’t mistake their generosity for weakness . . . Leos can instinctively sniff out B.S. and those with malicious or poor intentions will promptly be excised from the circle without so much as a warning.

3. Leos Are Passionate Lovers

Ruled by the sun and the element of fire, you can imagine that the same passion burns brightly in a romantic relationship. Be prepared to make a Leo the center of your world, showering them with attention, respect and adoration.

In return, you’ll have a devoted partner that will remain just as exciting as the day you met, whether you’ve been together for six days or six decades.

Leo’s set their standards high.

Another one of this zodiac sign’s striking qualities is that they don’t need you to fulfill any voids. This astrological sign is confident, secure and independent, which means if they’re with you, it’s a choice made on their own accord and not because they’re seeking any kind of validation.

Because of this, Leo’s set their standards high. Those who appear nervous or fickle in their displays of affection will be quickly dismissed, as Leos crave a strong personality with a wit that can match their own.
