The Leo Man

Something's coming your way. You can hear an awfully loud, crashing, roaring sound. Relax, it's only the King of the Jungle making his grand entrance, turning up late, with tousled hair and a dramatic story to tell. It's hard to miss a Leo man. Warm, enthusiastic, gregarious - he is on top of his world. He is dignified and strong, with an aura of power around him.

The Leo man is a natural born leader and his animal magnetism draws followers to him by the dozen. In a team situation, he is quite happy to work together with others, and will often be a key player, providing motivation and drive to his team. Ruled by the Sun, the Leo man is outgoing, confident, and energetic. He is an ambitious sort, and once he sets his mind on something, he is determined to accomplish it. His eagerness, once stoked, is without limits and he is incredibly generous, loyal and honorable.

Leo is a Fixed sign, and this means that the Leo man can be opinionated and stubborn about certain things. It is hard to change this man's decisions once he's made up his mind, and because he's also certain he's always right, there is no guarantee that he will even hear out your side of the story. If you persist in trying to correct a Leo man, claws may be bared and manes fluffed – try mild flattery and subtle hints, rather than an outright contradiction. The gloved hand and a gentle touch work much better when you're trying to tame a wild Lion. Don't mind him if the famous leonine temper flares – he's really just a big pussycat underneath all that growling and his roar is much worse than his bite.

All the world is a stage, and the Leo man has the lead role in every scene. He would never shy away from the limelight and absolutely adores being in the center of attention. His flair for the dramatic and his innate talent often lead to professions in the arts, acting, writing, or fashion. Some famous, flamboyant Leos include Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Yves St Laurent, Peter O'Toole, and Hulk Hogan.
