Leo is one of the most loyal zodiac signs
They place a lot of importance on this value. This strong sense of loyalty carries through to both friendships and relationships. But be warned: If you do wrong by this sign, you will struggle to regain their trust as they do not forget disloyalty easily.
2) Judges of character
Leo understands people
They are also particularly good judges of character; their tact and their powers of perception help them to read the hidden intentions of others with extreme accuracy. All they need is one look into your eyes to know if you have ulterior motives – well they do say that the eyes are the windows to the soul!
Leo is brave
As you most likely know, Leo is Latin for Lion, therefore it is no surprise that these natives are born with Lionhearts. In the face of adversity, they stand strong and never run away from issues in front of them, especially if it concerns someone close to them. The word “cowardice” doesn’t exist in their dictionary!
Leo can be spiky!
If a Leo has decided that they that dislike someone, they are prone to show a nastier side to their personality. Never try to force these folks to get along with someone that they’ve already made up their mind about – any attempt you make will be futile. As mentioned before they’re very good judges of character, so you might be better served listening to them anyways.
Leo has a loving side
On the other hand, they equally show limitless amounts of love towards those they deem worthy. They will always place the needs of those around them before their own needs, a quality indicative of their roles as natural-born leaders. However, make sure to acknowledge their efforts as they hate being taken for granted, though they probably won’t show it.
Leo never bites their tongue
Similarly, as the leaders of the pack, they are notorious for being particularly bossy – especially when it is about something which is close to their heart. Once they place importance on something, it has to be done their way or not all. Normally reserved, in situations such as this they become very vocal about what needs to be done.
These natives have BIG egos
Even though they are born to lead, Leos are typically not good at receiving criticism despite the fact that they might not express openly. As a result of their proud nature, the smallest critique can really affect them even if the criticism is for their benefit in the long run. Sometimes it helps to take a step back and not take everything personally.
Leo hides their weaknesses
While they come across as confident and assured on the exterior, they often struggle to express themselves when they’re at their lowest points as they don’t want to appear vulnerable in front of others. This often leads to feelings of isolation and loneliness harvesting within them, so make sure you share a heart to heart with them once every so often.
9) Loss Averse
Their sense of attachment leads to their downfall
Whilst they will readily give up on someone that they don’t value, they struggle to let go of people and ideas in which they have invested a lot of time and love into. This can lead to them holding onto destructive people and tendencies in their life rather than letting go.
10) Depression Prone
Leo is emotionally sensitive
It is not uncommon for them to undergo brief periods of depression given the extreme nature of their emotions. The ruling planet is the Sun which we consider to be the heart of our solar system, therefore they are more prone to illness relating to the heart and the spine. That being said, they undoubtedly have the heart, tenacity, and hopefully support to bounce back from these periods.
Leo makes friends easily
Whilst most would never admit it to themselves, people are naturally drawn to them due to their inherent charisma and calming presence. The reserved way in which they outwardly exude confidence attracts people around them, even if the attention they garner is unwanted. While they may not see themselves in the same light, people naturally flock towards them as they’re beacons of solidarity.
Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius are their best matches
When it comes to Leo compatibility with other zodiac signs, Leos are best suited to those who are fire signs like them such as Aries, Geminis, Librans and most notably Sagittarians.

Leo always thinks things through
Along with perceptive skills, Leos often base their decisions on intuition over facts. Whilst they may not be able to convincingly be able to explain their reasoning, their ability to make the right choice is uncanny.
