What are Leo traits and characteristics?

Leo belongs to the element of fire just like Aries and Sagittarius.

It makes them warm-hearted and always up for a good time.

They’re ruled by the sun which is centre of the universe and similarly they consider themselves the centre of attention and indispensible.

But they are also fearless lions – the symbol for a Leo – so they’ll always have your back with their strength.

They consider themselves king or queen of the jungle, strong born leaders and extremely dominant, but they are also determined and their generosity and humour will always ensure they have plenty of friends.

Which celebrities are Leos?

  • Daniel Radcliffe
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Barack Obama
  • Lisa Kudrow

Who are Leos most compatible with?

Sagittarius – This is a fire element star sign with an upbeat and positive life outlook that will coincide with that of a Leo. They keep each other reassured and confident and while a Leo loves to be the focus, a Sagittarius is more than happy to shower with compliments and love. Because of this, a Sagittarius is by far the best match.

Aries – Both are passionate fire signs meaning they’re sure to have sizzling relationships. There may be some jealousy, but their loyal natures will resolve things and they’re both willing to have a good fight and make up quickly.

Who are Leos least compatible with?

Scorpios – Leos want to be centre of attention and like to dominate, but a Scorpio likes to take control and is always trying to grasp more power. It will be a constant struggle.

Taurus – Leo relationships might be exhausting as they are both a little lazy and like to receive love more than give it. They also both have rigid views meaning coming to a compromise may be tricky.
