Leo is the lion, a symbol that represents Leo very well. They possess a kingdom which they protest and cherish. Leo’s are highly esteemed, honorable, and are very devoted to others and themselves. A Leo’s kingdom could be anything from work to home to a partner, whatever it is, you rule it. A Leo is always center stage and full of flair - they enjoy basking in the spotlight. A Leo always makes their presence known. Leo are full of energy that acts like a magnet for other people. Others are attracted to Leo's wit, charm, and what they have to say for they speak of things grand and very interesting.

Leo will never settle for second best. They want only the best which can cause lavish, excessive spending habits as they enjoy their life of luxury, which is all too easily justified by the grand and magnificent Leo! Public image is very important to Leo, with luxurious possessions and ways of life, this keeps the public image in high standing. They will do whatever it takes to protect their own reputation.

Leos are very generous, kind and openhearted people. If a Leo is crossed, they will strike back with force but they are not one to hold a grudge, they easily forgive, forget and move on. Leos are always trying to make things right in the world, they have larger than life emotions and they need to feel like they have accomplished something at the end of the day. They react to situations with action instead of sitting back and thinking about it. They are not impulsive however because they look at the future and consider consequences of their actions.

Leos are extremely sensitive but they hide that very well. Leos love praise and flattery - their egos demand respect and adoration. Leo is all about pride. This can cause them to be self-centered at times but the warmth of the Leo heart keeps it under control. If Leo's audience (otherwise known as their friends) do not provide the needed appreciation, Leo is too proud to ask for it and they will suffer a hurt ego, but no one will ever know and they will suffer in silence. The secret of the Leo is that they need to be needed.
