As the lion is king of the jungle, so Leo’s natural inclination is to rule
With the Sun as the ruler of this Sign, how can any Leo fail to be a star! Dynamic, charasmatic and flamboyant by nature, these people are some of life’s natural performers, always turning in a class act, to the delight of their family and friends. Proud as peacocks, their stately bearing and noble manner confers upon them a regal presence which attracts respect from others. Just as well, since they thrive on praise and adulation – so much so in fact, that many are all too often taken in by empty flattery. However, because they are warm, generous, open and passionate in all they do, the sunny dispotion of the Leo usually cheers the hearts of those they touch.
At work and play, the colourful and extroverted personalities of this group lend themselves quite readily to the worlds of fashion and design. The entertainment business also calls Leos, who turn to the limelight as a flower turns to the Sun. At work, they make popular team members and are respected by their colleagues. In business, they make fine executives, often ending up on the board. For it is their inbred powers of leadership and ability to command, that invariably sees the Leo to rise to the top of his or her chosen career.
In love and relationships, Leos make generous, demonstrative lovers. They’re warm, sensual people, who are prepared to give themselves body and soul to the person they love. However, they need constant reassurance from their partners and suffer miserably from wounded pride if they are not patently admired and respected in return. In partnerships, they do like to be the dominant force, and a partner who knows how to make a Leo feel ten feet tall will be rewarded with total and constant loyalty, and a lifetime of devotion.
In health, a huge appetite for living life to the full can lead Leos to over-indulge in rich, creamy, or spicy foods – all guaranteed to wreak havoc on their cholesterol levels. And this is preciesly what Leos need to keep in check as they are prone to rheumatic-type diseases, circulatory problems and heart ailments. Fortunately, their love of red wine may dilute some of their worst excesses. Gentle and regular exercise is recommended, but they must be careful not to strain their backs which is another of their vulnerable areas.
In wealth matters, there isn’t a Leo who doesn’t, in one way or another, enjoy the five star treatment. Consequently, a lot of a Leo’s salary will be spent on maintaining a comfortable lifestyle. However, since Leos are a lucky group who are gifted, and generally highly regarded, they are usually able to demand a good income, which keeps them in the manner to which they have been accustomed.
