Leo the Lion. The King of the jungle! Those men with birthdays in Leo produce humans resembling the lion's appearance a bit, and are usually blonde or red haired.

Your Leo Man

Your Lion is a born leader. Just as the lion in the wild enjoys basking in the sun watching over his territory, so does your human lion. He is definitely the king of the jungle. He is extroverted, creative, and dominant. Leo is strong and stubborn. He is also humane and benevolent. Mr. Leo is resilient and forgiving.

The Lion’s most desired place to be is the complete center of attention. He is the star of the show! Flattery will definitely get you everywhere! Your Lion can express himself in beautiful, abstract ways making his own exciting solar flares. He especially enjoys the finer things in life so expect to be wined and dined; be prepared to be his Queen.

Leo men are optimistic, and make the best out of every situation. He knows how to be strong physically, mentally and emotionally. He is a man’s man with the ego to match.

Leo Man in Love

Those women looking for a “Macho Man” may want to invest a little time checking out Mr. Leo. His charisma, confidence, and creativity are a great combination for a guaranteed good time. He has natural animal magnetism attracting women of all kinds.

He falls in love easily and is tenderhearted when it comes to romance. The women he prefers to be with must be feminine. A sun dress would please the King of the jungle. If you can live with the lion’s ego, you will find yourself with a great man.

Not All Leos Are Alike

Each of us is individual and unique. Based on your birth chart which is also called your natal chart, your personality, traits and priorities can be different from the traditional description of your Sun sign.

Your birth chart is a snapshot of the sky at the time and place when you were born. There are three major influences. Your Sun sign, Moon sign, and Rising sign (often called the Ascendant) weigh heavily on determining your personality traits. In addition to the three major influences, there are 10 astrological planets, 12 houses, and the aspects between them that also, collectively, determine parts of your personality.

I have a Leo sister and worked for 2 female Leos. They were my favorite bosses. Now that I think about it, I believe the relationships with my bosses were very good because Leo women are confident. I have a strong personality that can intimidate people sometimes, but that surely didn't bother these two extraordinary business women.

Marcy Goodfleisch from Planet Earth on July 28, 2012:

I think you nailed it! Leo brother, Leo mother - yep, sounds familiar. But I sure love them! Voted up and up!

Mmargie1966 (author) from Gainesville, GA on July 20, 2012:

I'm glad you understand the importance of the birth chart (or natal chart) and the influences that can skew a description of the general Sun sign personality.

I read your hub on egoism and found it quite fascinating. You taught me a little more about egoism. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for commenting, diyomarpandan! I appreciate your feedback!

I agree, not all Leos are alike. I'm a Leo, and I'm not at all "extroverted" and "dominant", not that dominant anyway. However, ask this Leo about egoism and I've got an entire hub to explain it!
