The Proud Lion

Leo - symbolized by a lion - is bold, intelligent, warm, and courageous. Blessed with high self-esteem, Leos are proud of who they are. They don't believe in false modesty and don’t mind praising themselves for a job well done. But Leos aren’t self-aggrandizing or unwilling to roll up those sleeves and get their hands dirty: they know that in order to be respected and admired, they need to put in the effort worthy of a leader.

Highly Demonstrative

Leos are focused on interacting with the outside world, whether this comes to their social life, their work life, or their love life. Leos thrive on social interactions and have no problem making friends, and constantly strive to show the outside world their worth. Outward appearances matter to Leos, and when it comes to work they're willing to do whatever it takes to get that job title or earn workplace status. In relationships, Leos love grand gestures, and want to show the world how attentive and caring they can be, often buying their partner the biggest and flashiest presents.

A Natural Leader

A natural leader, a Leo's very presence inspires others to be the best they can be. Leos are always keen to blaze a new trail or vanquish injustice, demonstrating their worthiness and hopefully making a name for themselves along the way. Leos thrive on their split-second decision-making and reaction skills, making them seem dynamic and in-control to others.

Focused on Being the Best

Leos are their own harshest critic and consider each day a challenge to be the best, brightest, and boldest Lion they can be. They hold themselves to an extremely high standard and obsess about being the best version of themselves they can be, which can give them a reputation for being self-centered or arrogant. While Leos aren’t shy about shooting down ideas or plans that don't fit with their agenda or idea of fun, one can be certain that when a Lion decides to participate in something it's genuinely because they genuinely want to.

A Class Act

While Leos can be a bit self-oriented, this doesn’t mean that they are rude. On the contrary, they tend to be very gracious with their time and attention. They always show friendliness and politeness to everyone, and seem to have a boundless capacity for demonstrating love, affection, and generosity.
