Here’s everything you need to know about Leos, including their personality traits and potential for connection with other signs.


Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac (July 22 to August 23), and it’s represented by the lion. A fixed fire sign ruled by the sun, Leo (called Simha in Vedic astrology) has energy that is glamorous, courageous and bold.


Leos are the natural leaders of the zodiac, as magnificent and striking as the Lion that embodies their sign. Leos are radiantly joyful, liberal with their appeal and endowments. They are fiercely proud and confident. They love and live life to the fullest rather than being in charge at home, work and play. Leos are very loving, theatrical, and creative. Leos are also powerful, courageous and eager to conquer everything they set their minds on. Compassion and big-heartedness, consciousness, drive and natural leadership are four of the main characteristics of the Leo personality. Leos are known for their generosity of time, energy, respect and money. As a result, Leos are attracted to others. Leos have a natural sense of self-assurance. Leos, like their lion emblem, recognise their own strength and authority, and they aren’t hesitant to express it.

The lion needs to feel famous in love. They want to be the centre of their partner’s world—but the attention doesn’t have to go just one way. The typical Leo will also centre their partner as a result, leaving everyone in the relationship feeling seen. As with all fire signs, Leos need relationships to feel hot, passionate and exciting. Keeping things spicy in the bedroom is non-negotiable. Even though they may be known for public displays of love and attention, Leos also possess tenderness and loyalty behind the scenes. So above all, lions are loyal, courageous and generous partners.

Typically, Leos are the life of the party, and they need a huge friend group that feels more like an audience. Leo rules the heart, and a great gift of this sign is being able to light up a room—uplifting everyone in it. There is an element of worship in everything Leo does. Lions are able to find the elements of people that are worth holding in high esteem and making them feel special and unique. Leos need this same kind of attention in return, so be sure to let your Leo friends know how special they are.

There are no absolutes when it comes to astrological compatibility, but Leos tend to gravitate toward folks who can make them feel seen and heard. Here are their most compatible and incompatible signs in friendship and love. Generally, the most compatible signs for Leo friendships and romantic relationships are fellow fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) as they’ll match their passion and heat. Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) also have dynamic, fast- paced energy and could work well for a Leo.
