Those belonging to the Leo zodiac sign are the true kings of the world – or at least the people around them. Leos exhibit the courage, passion and leadership qualities of a lion. They are extremely sure of themselves and never second-guess their decisions. They go for what they want in life and do things on their own terms.
Although they are known to be self-obsessed and vain, they are never unaware of those around them. If a friend needs help, a Leo is sure to come to his or her aid immediately. Ruled by the element of fire, Leo gets along well with its fellow fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius. Common personality traits in Leos include confidence, positivity, determination, domination, and a free-spirited nature. Just being around a Leo can inspire you to forget your troubles and approach life with renewed vigor.
Leos don’t believe in wallowing in self-pity or regretting past decisions. They are people of action and are very decisive in nature. Those who complain or express remorse over what they have done are sure to be looked upon with contempt by the Leo. Leos are often in touch with their spiritual side and are deeply religious. For this reason, they may come across as stubborn or outdated to more liberal-minded individuals. However, people ruled by this fire sign are sure to be at the forefront of all worldly developments in technology, industry, and design. They are powerful and usually enjoy fame and professional success.
On the flip side, the virtues of a Leo can be disastrous to his or her social life. People ruled by Leo may come across as arrogant and simple-minded. They may look down upon less successful individuals with a sense of pity, making them unpopular among others.
