The lion of leadership, confidence, and enjoyment. Leos take pride and pleasure in what their abilities can offer. They will find every ray of light they can gloat under to show the world just how talented they really are. Some key words for Leo are confidence, vanity, leadership, creativity, generosity, arrogance and gullibility.
Leo takes the crown for leadership. Leos tend to organize and lead things very well and quite naturally. Leos want to be recognized for this leadership they take pride in because they are so confident in what they do best at. Along with this confidence comes a little vanity that needs to be controlled. Too much reward given to a Leo will put this vanity into effect, but too little reward will make them question their confidence and ability, there must be a balance. There is always something someone can praise a Leo for because they are just naturally very talented and creative. A praised Leo does give back; they are very generous people and look for cries of help where needed.
Leo is also quite arrogant; their element contributes to this, but people are quick to forgive such a loving soul. Finally fire elements are often to be seen as naive or gullible, Leo definitely holds this trait inside them even if it is almost unnoticeable.
A sign’s most compatible is their complete opposite and other signs within their element. A sign’s least compatible is any sign that contrasts their element.
Leo’s ultimate match is Aquarius, they sit opposite from each other in alignment. Leo is drawn by Aquarius’ great ideas and intellect. Leo wishes to grasp the knowledge from Aquarius and use it in their creativity and stardom. Aquarius is open to teach Leo their ideas on life and together they are truly king and queen. Everything about this match is perfection, especially their elements. Aquarius is an air elemental while Leo is fire. Fire needs oxygen (air) to grow. For Leo, this growth is their confidence and understanding their receive from Aquarius. Whether it’s partnership, friendship, or a relationship, Leo and Aquarius’ like-mindedness will go far as they sit on the throne of star-power.
Leos are also very compatible with other fire signs like themselves; Sagittarius and Aries. Altogether they are very fiery and charismatic, they just naturally spark together.
Leo is least compatible with earth and water elemental signs. Once again, referring to the other entries of different signs, the relationship is not impossible, just very contrasting. Leo is often to arrogant or vain for earth and water elements which are often too sensitive to a Leo’s behaviour. Leo is least compatible with Scorpio and Taurus, mainly because of their elements. Scorpio will find Leo’s arrogance and confidence unbearable and annoying. Both signs want attention differently, therefore they could never make each other happy. Taurus is too slow paced for Leo. Leo just seems to over power Taurus, leaving the relationship unbalanced. Taurus want foundation while Leo is too free-spirit and all over the place.
To summarize Leo’s traits; the traits that seem to attract other signs are their leadership, confidence, creativity, and generosity. On the other hand, their arrogance, gullibility and vanity can repel other signs.
