Someone please roll out a red carpet because it’s the season of the over the top, big-hearted, theatrical, vain, and attention seeking Leo!
If you were born between July 22nd and August 23rd then you are without a doubt this vivacious, confident, fearless and optimistic star sign, ruled by the sun. Leos like the lion they are represented by, are the most ambitious, determined and courageous people you’d ever meet.
They can be super proud, self-absorbed and a little bit opinionated but with a lot of attention, support and babying you can work your way through any relationship with them.
Leos put their heart into everything and are always looking for ways to add some spark to their lives and the lives of their loved ones. They often come off as being too extra but they are honestly just trying to live life as creatively and artistically as possible.
People born under this star sign put the G in generosity. They love grand gestures, over-the-top love proclamations, lavish dinners, exclusive parties and pretty much anything theatrical or opulent. Aries, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius are the most compatible with the fiery Leo.
If you’ve ever wondered what a Leo looks for in a partner and how they act in relationships then keep scrolling.
So, what’s a Leo actually looking for in a relationship?
Leos always want to be in charge and can be pretty commanding, they may try to act receptive but the truth is they don’t take criticism so well. An ideal partner for this bubbly fire sign is someone who is easygoing, lively, kind and flexible.
No sign lives off affirmations and compliments like a Leo does. This sign needs lots and lots of attention and support from their partners to give their all in a relationship. They also need someone that can match their enthusiastic energy.
Leos can sometimes be selfish givers, in the sense that they overlook the needs and fancies of their partners and kind of impose their own tastes and interests. A partner that can speak up and be direct about how they feel and what they want from their Leo partner would help this sign considerably in being a lot more attentive and observant. Being in a sustainable relationship with a Leo takes a lot of patience, effort and love.
When paired with a partner that can go with the flow, Leos make passionate and super loving companions.
So, how do Leos behave in relationships?
The Motivators Of The Star Sign
No one motivates like an overly ambitious and determined Leo. Like the sun they are ruled by, this fire sign wants their radiance, warmth and positive energy to touch everyone in their lives.
If you’re down or need some encouragement, you can always count on your Leo partner to swoop in and save the day with their many momentous stories from their impressively accomplished past.
The downside to this endearing trait of theirs is that they can be a little insensitive in their bid to inspire and motivate. For instance, if you tell a Leo about something difficult you’re going through, don’t be hurt or annoyed if they bypass telling you some words of encouragement to lunch into a lengthy story of how they overcame a similar but harder experience, this is just how Leos motivate.
Leos = Vain AF
Leos are full of themselves and have enough ego to go round. Pride is one thing that often gets in the way of this signs happiness.
They want and need a partner that can put them on a golden pedestal. Showing off is one thing this fire sign does best, they have this ability to bring out anyone’s inner superstar.
Gifting your Leo partner tickets to VIP events, taking them shopping for designer wears and pretty much doing everything and anything to stroke their ego would definitely make this sign swoon.
If you ever try to make a Leo feel small or unimportant, they will be out the door without thinking twice. It’s either this sign is number one in your life or nothing, they don’t ever want to compete with other people for your love.
They Can Get A Bit Jelly
Although Leos love to inspire and motivate people to give life their all, they can start to feel threatened when they notice you are starting to do better than them.
Leos always want their light to shine brighter, they just can’t help it.
Any behavior or displays that will make this sign second-guess where they stand in your life should be avoided at all costs, not just because it will make them jealous, but because your Leo partner would try to outdo your behavior in the worst possible way, to spite you.
So if you’re always super friendly around other females , don’t be mad when your Leo partner starts throwing herself at your friends.
The Most Stable People You’d Ever Meet
Leo is ruled by the sun and since the sun never goes retrograde, this sign is pretty stable and consistent. They are also the fixed sign of the fire group.
You would rarely ever see a Leo acting two-sided or irrational, they emit the same erratic energy day in, day out. This quality makes them a tad bit too opinionated and stubborn but they are generally the most loyal, sincere and trustworthy people you can have in your corner.
They Love To Take the Lead
This super productive star sign loves to lead. They are not afraid to make the first move and they will most definitely want to call the shots on one too many occasions.
When it comes to getting down and dirty, Leos have an affinity for sex positions that make them feel like they are in charge. They never accept failure and always want to be the best in everything they do, including sex. Leos are rarely ever selfish lovers but they can be pretty demanding and precise about their needs.
They Are Big Hearted
Generosity is one trait everyone loves about Leos. They always want to help out when the people in their lives are in need, even when they don’t have the resources.
This sign always wants to give their loved ones their heart desires and in return they want your unwavering gratitude. Leos cannot thrive with a selfish partner, it’s important for this sign to be in a relationship where their needs can equally be met by their significant other.
They Are Actually Pretty Fragile
Say one harsh or critical comment to a Leo and it would stick with them for days.
This sign struggles with expressing their hurt, they hate being seen as weak or vulnerable so often times they pretend to be okay with a lot of things. Leos are pretty sensitive so they steer clear from anything that would make them feel insecure.
People born under this sign know how to protect their space and want their energy to be reciprocated at the same frequency.
They Love A Good Show
Leos love to be entertained, they welcome a little drama in their lives once in a while just to keep things interesting.
They also absolutely adore it when you give them a good visual tease, so dressing up for your Leo partner should be something you do often. This fire sign loves to not only show themselves off, they also love to show their partners off. They would never shy away from some PDA and would do anything to keep things sizzling with passion.
HAPPY LEO SEASON!
