One of the most generous of the zodiac, Leos make loyal and giving friends. They'll go out of their way to help, even when it conflicts with their own schedule. The Leo is a strong, confident personality who has the ability to make almost everyone comfortable. Unassuming and gracious, they love to host parties and events. The Leo is rarely found alone—interacting is second nature. Close friends are chosen for their ability to keep up with the Leo's energy, along with a strong sense of dignity and a commitment to individual values. When family is involved, the mighty Lion will do whatever it takes to defend their loved ones. Loyalty for Leo means a lifetime. They pride themselves on being there for family through thick and thin.
Leos are doers. “I will” is the key phrase for this sign. They're always going to be busy, regardless of whatever else is happening around them. They are ambitious, creative, and optimistic. It's not enough to just do the job for a Leo. It must be done to the absolute best of their ability. Once committed to an employer, they will go all out, but the best situation for the Leo is to be their own boss.
Careers that allow for the Leo's dramatic flair are ideal. Such positions give the Lion free rein. Other occupations such as management, teaching, and politics are well suited, too. Anything that puts a Leo in a leadership position will give this sign the opportunity to do what comes naturally to them.
Leos love to surround themselves with the things they fancy. Since money usually comes readily to the Leo, there's always more where that came from. “Money is meant to be spent” as far as this sign is concerned, and spend they will. Generous in spirit, a Leo will give away their last dollar to help a friend out. They're always confident that there will be more, and there usually is. There's never a lack of work for a Leo. In fact, there's generally more work available to them than they can keep up with.
This fiery sign is passionate and forthright with their affections. When it comes to romance, you can expect the Leo to be adventurous, fun, and highly energetic. There is a definite line of division between sex and love for Leos. Mates are chosen for their willingness to allow the Leo to take the lead, shine brightly, and be independent. They look for uninhibited lovers who aren't self-conscious. As accepting as the Leo is, a mate needs to be an intellectual equal to cut the mustard. Leos are very giving to those in their personal life.
Each sign has a part of the anatomy attached to it, making this the area of the body that is most sensitive to stimulation. The anatomical areas for Leo are the heart, spine, and upper back.
