More Astrology Traits and Personality of Leo
Charismatic and Stylish
Love triumphs over all for this sign, which is ruled by the heart and operates from this dimension too. Leo’s are born fortunate. Charismatic and positive-thinking they attract not only an abundance of friends and opportunities, but manage to survive life’s stormy times with style and good humour. Their ruling planet is the Sun, and this is often reflected in their sunny and happy nature.
Loyal and Devoted
Once a Lion is committed to a relationship, they are totally devoted and faithful. Should their heart or trust be broken they never forgive or forget. When a relationship breaks down (even a long standing one) they can disappear into the sunset without a backward look. Leos can cut ties, and leave others heartbroken, but usually there is a good reason why they have broken a tryst. For a Leo, when a relationship is over, really over, it is over for good.
Soul evolution of Leo
There are three levels of soul-evolution of the Leos. The highest is represented by the Sphinx; wise beyond their years and great teachers to others. The second is the Lion, King of the Jungle, ruled by ego but always protective and sustaining of those they love. The last is the Lion Cub, immature and undeveloped, frightened by anything new. These Leos cling to others (in the mode of the child not wanting to leave its mother’s side).) They can’t bear to be alone.
Proud and Born to Lead
No matter what level they have attained, all Leos are trendsetters, leaders and adventurers. They are idealistsic, honest and direct, and will work long and hard to achieve their goals.
Their weakness is their pride. This is one sign where the saying “flattery will get you everything” applies, they thrive on admiration from others, but be warned criticism will slam the relationship door right in your face.
