A Careless Whisper In A Silent World…
While dealing with a Leo Man, be sure of one thing – you will never find him alone. He will always be amongst a group of people and, more often than not, he will be the center of attention. He is not the one to waste his charm in empty air; there will always be an audience admiring him. This is the key to a lion’s heart – attention, appreciation and flattery. If you want to get close to a Leo male, become his audience.
In case you have fallen in for the quiet, gentle lion, don’t be fooled. Behind all this calm is the fire of an August-Born. Try dominating him even a slightest bit and you will see the fireworks. His personality traits include…, Generous doses of chivalry, Courtesy, Gallantry, Care and warmth, Warm, Supportive, Proud, Dramatically Romantic, Protective, Adoring, Playful, Inventive, Sensual, Joyful, Possessive, Jealous, Controlling, Cold, Cruel, Selfish, Egoistical, Self Serving
You will not require too many preparations to make a Leo guy fall in love with you. Candlelight dinner, moonlit night, sensual music and lots of romance – that’s it! He will instantly fall in love with you. Infact, romance is something without which no Leo can survive for too long. He needs the constant love and attention given by a lover.
Leo Men will be extremely generous while courting. You will be showered with roses, given gifts every now and then, taken to the best restaurants and be loaded with love letters, sprayed with sensual perfume. You will think that you have fallen in love with the most amiable person in the world. Now, comes the real part! Once you have entered his den, you will have to be his forever. A Leo Man is extremely possessive of his loved ones and as far as you are concerned, you belong to him and him only.
He can get very jealous, very easily! Even a playful look at another man will send his jealousy meter to the topmost point. When pushed too far, he will send that man thrashing to the floor, if not the hospital. Most of the Leo Men do not want their wives to work after marriage. It is because they want to be the primary interest in the life of their partners and cannot stand anything else taking that place, even if it her job/work.
A Leo guy will always pamper you with the best things in life and he will expect you to turn out looking stunning beautiful, when you go outside. Now, after you have managed to swallow the initial hiccups, you can be sure that you have the most devoted husband in the whole world. Just remember to respect him and he will be generous in all respects – love, money, care and everything you want. A Leo Man is not one of those who forget to say ‘I Love You’ till the next anniversary. You will be showered with attention and compliments every now and then. He will also remain faithful to you, though he may look at the pretty faces every now and then. However, don’t take that too seriously and leave him. He will be very hurt and may go to the extreme of faking a heart attack to get you back.
He may not be very good with finances and this is where you will be required to provide some stability. There is a gambler streak in almost every Leo male and he will have to learn to keep it under limits. He is very good at repairing things around the house and this part of his characteristics profile may come quite handy to you.
He has a very bad temper and it will be displayed when you show him disrespect or indifference. Then, he can turn hotter than a burning furnace. Apart from that, he has a very cool demeanor. Leo Men make wonderful, warm and loving fathers. In this area also, they demand respect and it is again your duty to ensure that the kids do not forget their manners. Always remember that a Leo Guy secretly fears being ridiculed and his pride is just a veil for his fears. So, make sure to keep him nourished with love, care and respect. You will be rewarded with a loving husband, who will never let you be lonely again.
The gambling instinct is inherent in all Leo natives and this will also apply to their attitude regarding affairs of the heart. These are individuals who tend to take risks and, sometimes, they will make mistakes. Indeed, many Leo subjects marry more than once. Being a Sign governed by the Element of Fire and ruled by the brazen Sun, the glorious optimism and warmth of Leo attracts similar type partners. When young, this Sign has no time or patience for the more timid sweetheart and those ruled by Leo will spend a great deal of time juggling with romantic prospects. Leo wants a partner of whom he can be proud. Thus, these natives are prone to fall in love with someone they admire.
No sacrifice in the name of love is too great for Leo individuals but, once the loving has stopped, then any partner will need to beware since this Sign can be totally unforgiving once crossed. This may sound rather terrible but, in truth, it is not. Leo subjects are proud and sunny souls who radiate warmth and happiness, but they are often not sufficiently subtle to suspect the presence of unhappiness in those who are close to them. In short, they frequently fail to realize that all is not well in a relationship.
However, since it is inherent in the Leo nature to judge self worth on what surrounds them, these subjects may be somewhat cricital of a partner’s qualities, talents or appearance. While the personal values of Leo individuals will provide great self-confidence, these natives are continually disappointed in the actions and motives of others. Thus, they are somewhat destined to be disappointed in love at least once during a lifetime. Therefore, in matters of the heart, Leo subjects should be careful to exercise the greatest care and prudence in the selection of a life partner since any mistake in this area could mean the unhappiness of a lifetime. Any marriage while this native is still young…or one taken in a hasty manner…is inadvisable. Indeed, any form of long-term relationship should not be entered into by the Leo individual until he is well-settled in life and then only with a partner who is on an equal plane…both socially and intellectually. Nonetheless, that having been said, a Leo native will always come up fighting.
Leo Vs Aries
This is usually a marvelous combination. With both sides being emotional in their make-up, Leo will “Lionize” an Aries partner. This is particularly true if Aries will allow Leo to hold the center of the floor on occasions. However, sharing the limelight on the part of Leo is also important, since Aries too will feel the need to be “On Stage” every once in a while.
Aries is optimistic and open to life…Leo is generous and good-hearted. If neither tries to deflate the other and, if each can give room for compromise in the area of domination, then this should be an extremely happy combination.
Leo Vs Taurus
When Leo passion meets Taurus sensuality, there is often a volcanic physical attraction as each tests the strength of the other. Both signs are lovers of beauty and comfort, possessing high ideas, fidelity and a love of good food and music…in other words, both crave the best life has to offer. Given the money-management abilities inherent in the Taurus nature, this union could lead to a most royal life style. The extravagance of the Leo nature and the possessiveness of the Taurus character often turn into bones of contention. Nonetheless, both are serious workers and will probably have great respect for each other in that regard…but might not respect the way in which the other goes about his or her work.
In the long run, if this combination is to maintain, then the focus must be on similarities. As has been already mentioned, both of these signs are extraordinarily stubborn and need to cultivate flexibility. They must find something that both believe in together, so that each can stretch, grow and thrive. However, given that Taurus and Leo are intensely loyal and powerful signs, romance can follow suit, particularly when there is a common goal.
Leo Vs Gemini
Since Leo loves first with the heart and Gemini with the mind, this combination will soon find out that they are probably totally unsuited to each other. On the surface, there is likely to be great deal of mutual attraction. However, before much time passes, the passionate Leo is sure to clash with the unreasonable Gemini, who will undoubtedly complain that the Leo nature is too material, too possessive and far too demanding. Nevertheless, despite these drawbacks, there is reason for optimism regarding this pairing. If Leo is able to understand that Gemini may not always be around to provide the attention upon which this sign thrives…and Gemini can understand Leo’s need to run the world…then this mixture of air and fire can prove to be a good one.
Generous Leo is usually willing to bend in whatever direction is needed…provided flattery leads the way…and both individuals possess a somewhat childlike, playful and fun-loving side which surfaces easily when they are together. There is also a mutual appreciation of drama and color, and each finds the other to be delightful and interesting in many areas. Nevertheless, Leo will invariably have difficulty in completely comprehending Gemini’s desire for novelty, since it is inherent in the Leo character to make a committment and keep to it. In addition, Leo is a very proud sign with a sensitive ego and Gemini can be a merciless teaser, frequently not taking Leo seriously enough. On the Gemini side, Leo will most probably demand more adoration than Gemini is willing to give. Thus, though not necessarily the best blend in a romantic sense, the Gemini/Leo combination usually makes for an excellent friendship and will be an affectionate pairing between two people who truly enjoy each other’s company and have many wonderful times together.
Leo Vs Cancer
In this combination, since Cancer desperately needs to be needed, Leo will find it easy to satisfy this need. In short, when a Leo native loves, then a Leo native cherishes. The Cancer individual’s desire for sympathy, tenderness and emotional support can also be provided by the loving and warm-hearted Leo partner. However, Cancer’s moodiness can present a problem in this pairing. Leo is positive and outgoing, generally an “up” personality…unless there has been a major affront to the inherent Leo pride. Thus, for this relationship to work, Leo must be given recognition, respect and appreciation. Since Cancer is not prone to be demonstrative, this could become a bone of contention between the two.
Although this is a combination of vastly different temperaments, there is a good possibility for true caring within this mix. Both partners take life very personally…perhaps more personally than either might realize. This could be an unusually warm and loving bond. Leo is more dominant and will almost certainly take the lead in any relationship…which will be just fine with Cancer. However, each partner will be committed to an enduring and rewarding relationship and since the desires of both are similar, each could fill a very important void in the life of the other.
Leo Vs Leo
Since Leo is inherently a Sign with a strong and dominating character, this combination would probably not get along so well as others whose Signs are identical. Both partners here are rather inflexible which is almost sure to result in trouble. The male Leo will want to assume the role of leader, but will have to battle with the female Leo for this right since she will also wish to lead. In short, both partners will strive to be the “boss” in this relationship. It will be very difficult for this female to take orders from the male and vice versa. Thus, an already tense situation is certain to be aggravated even further. A career will also be very important to both and this could lead to competition between the pair.
Leo Vs Virgo
In general, Virgo natives are not attracted to Leo subjects. There may well be an initial attraction on the part of Leo due to an unfilled need for constant flattery which caused the Leo individual in question a rare moment of feeling inferior. Virgo may have viewed the crestfallen expression of Leo as that of a soul in trouble and, since Virgo is the helpful Sign, would have been most eager to provide aid, not expecting to see a totally different person once the Leo native had regained his or her self-confidence. The Virgo partner will be thrifty with money, whereas Leo is much more generous and the differences here regarding finances will include a vast array of things…everything from planning a budget to putting money away for the future. In short, the Leo/Virgo relationship will be a shaky one at best and unlikely to maintain unless tolerance is the main ingredient of the union.
Leo Vs Libra
Both Leo and Libra are exceptionally warm characters, but the compatibility here seems to be lacking. Leo enjoys a good fight and any arguing match will doubtless help this individual to “clear the air.” However, such disputes are perceived threatening to the peace-loving and harmonious Libra native. Any attempts on the part of Libra to discuss differences in a calm manner will be met with Leo’s fiery temper…something the Libra partner will find ugly, unbalanced and uncongenial. Leo subjects are prone to delay facing any decision-making unless it involves a pressing concern and the Libra native will likely perceive this attitude as being irresponsible and unloving. Thus, even more friction is provoked. In short, this is not a promising combination of Signs in terms of a romantic union and indeed, may even produce the kind of situation which brings about spousal abuse.
Leo Vs Scorpio
Scorpio natives are prone to dissect everyone and everything which happens to fall under their watchful eyes. However, in this combination, the Scorpio subject is likely to be highly insulted should the Leo partner attempt to do the same thing. Leo individuals have an open manner of speaking but seldom reveal everything about themselves. They like to hold back certain things which results in the Scorpio partner becoming indignant…although she will be equally as secretive (or even more so) and refuse to fully open up under any circumstances. In essence, those ruled by Scorpio have a difficult time in finding a suitable partner from any Zodiac Sign due to the overly-demanding and overbearing ways which are inherent in these natives. In short, this will be a rather storm-tossed union at best.
Leo Vs Sagittarius
Natives of both Leo and Sagittarius are blessed with the same warm, generous and loving characteristics, but Leo will need to learn that Sagittarius “gives” to everyone with no one person capturing his or her exclusive attention for very long. In short, the Leo partner could very easily end up with a broken heart from this union. Sagittarius is apt to come up with some wild ideas or huge gamble with a view to making a great deal of money and will doubtless entice Leo’s support in this endeavor. However, should everything fall through or losses prevail, although the Sagittarius partner will be grateful for the love and support offered by Leo, it is inherent in the Sagittarius nature to make the Leo partner also share in the blame for such failure. The Leo/Sagittarius union does have the potential to be a rewarding relationship…as long as the love and desire is there.
Leo Vs Capricorn
In areas of everyday life, there could not be two different personalities than those of Leo and Capricorn. Leo loves clothes, the very best furniture and is constantly seeking the status symbols of life. Capricorn could truly not care less about such things, finding the simple life much more attractive and believing that to save for the future is of paramount importance. The style of “show” inherent in the Leo character will make the simplest of outings appear to the more thrifty Capricon partner as though it cost a fortune…and this will likely be the major source of woes associated with this union. Natives of Capricorn experience periods of wanting to be alone, particularly when he or she feels under too much pressure, or the arguments become too intense. Under such circumstances, it is not unusual for these subjects to disappear for days, leaving the Leo partner to conduct a panicked and worried search. Over time, the Capricorn partner may loosen up somewhat in this area, but that is by no means a certainty. Capricorn consider the Leo desire for intimacy to be rather overindulgent…something such natives may find irritating since it is inherent in this Sign to believe in moderation of all things.
Leo Vs Aquarius
The inherent aloof nature of Aquarius will probably present a challenge to the Leo native here, and may possibly be the “drawing card” which first brings this couple together since Leo is sure to believe that the Aquarius individual is truly quite warm-hearted despite that “frosty” exterior. In truth, for this relationship to work, Leo will have to learn and accept that the Aquarius partner will never be as warm-hearted and generous with self as Leo would like or expect. Both of these subjects are proud individuals with fixed opinions. Thus, there are likely to be many arguments. Being a humanitarian, Aquarius subjects are not overly interested in material gain, whereas Leo natives strive for success in financial matters and have little patience for Aquarius ideals…ideals which Leo considers to be unrealistic. Aquarius natives can…and will…find others who capture their interests, leaving Leo frustrated, regarding the Aquarius partner as an inhuman and uncaring soul.
Leo Vs Pisces
Pisces natives tend to give the impression that they need to be protected or “mothered” and this could be the initial attraction for Leo individuals. However, Leo is sure to get a big surprise when the Pisces partner suddenly becomes positive and takes any actions necessary on her own behalf. If Leo should persist with the union and become involved in a long-term relationship, this can lead to drastic effects on the Leo partner since Leo natives always like to know exactly where they stand in any situation. Both partners here will be vain individuals and share in the love of extravagant clothing…but that is about as far as the sharing will go.
Those governed by Pisces are generous with love and affection but, on occasion, may tune-out the Leo partner and retreat into a small and quiet world where personal problems can be resolved and solitary decisions be made. Under such circumstances, the Leo partner is likely to feel puzzled, hurt, left out and frustrated at such treatment. In order to keep Leo happy, the Pisces partner must learn to control the inherent changeable moods and keep such moods separate from the lovelife. If the Leo native is able to accept an individual governed by a somewhat weaker Sign as a partner, then this relationship could work out rather well…but the Leo/Pisces combination will never be one of the strongest unions.
