The Leo Man: The Dramatic King

Need to understand the inner workings of a Leo man? Want to get to know him better without having to pry? This is where Astrology comes in handy. Get to know your Leo on an intimate Astrological level and take the connection to the next level!

Before we take a deep dive, let’s go over the basics.

Those born under the sign Leo are born between July 23rd and August 22nd. Their zodiacal glyph is the lion, which perfectly sums up their demeanor. Leos have a regal aura to them, which makes it impossible to not notice them! Don’t be fooled, they are well aware of it too. 

Additionally, Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, which influences them to focus on personal expression. The order of a sign is important to consider because it represents the stage of development which the sign is undergoing. Leo is a young sign, making them rather juvenile in spirit. However, their focus on self-expression inclines them to explore their inner child to effectively showcase themselves to the world. 

Leo is a fixed fire sign, making them want to stick to one thing that they feel passionate about, and see it all the way through. This fixed quality can make Leos quite stubborn and demanding. They know what they want and how they want it. It can be difficult for them to budge or listen to others since they feel that others should follow their lead. The fire energy within them makes them excellent leaders. Leo being ruled by the Sun gives them an extra boost of creativity and consistency. The sun rises and sets day by day after all! The influence of the Sun contributes to the rather sunny energy that Leos emit. 

Now, let’s take a closer look at Leo men!
