Leos are known for being bold and charismatic. They love to interact with others and tend to be extroverted.
We’ll examine how Leos, born on July 27th, act, love, and work.
Leos tend to be full of energy. They’re very energetic and ready to go all the time. This makes them very good workers and always there for their friends. However, it can also be a bit much for the slower-moving signs.
This sign always wants to be seen and enjoys being in the center of the spotlight. They’re extroverted and need interaction to thrive. They’re often the life of the party, but they can brag a bit too much.
Leos are often very creative, though they prefer to work in groups on their creative endeavors. They’re great project managers for marketing campaigns and similar creative ventures.
Because they’re very people-oriented and charismatic, Leos tend to take leadership roles – even if they don’t mean to. They’re often natural leaders in every situation.
Just like with every sign, Leos do have some weaknesses. However, these are also areas for them to grow.
If they push themselves too hard, Leos are prone to getting burnout. They often don’t rest as much as they should, and this weakness can prevent them from being as effective as possible. It’s vital that they recharge and relax just as much as they move.
Furthermore, Leos are known for being self-centered. They prefer to have all the attention – sometimes to a fault. It isn’t odd for them to seek out attention even when it isn’t appropriate, especially when they are younger. Therefore, they must learn that the world doesn’t revolve around them.
When they aren’t getting attention, Leos can feel offended or unloved. They may act out, especially because they tend to have a temper. Those living under this sign will be most fulfilled when they learn to let others shine, too.
Leos love deeply and completely. They’re very passionate about practically everything, and their relationships are no different. They’re very open to others and tend to fall head-over-heels quickly.
This sign often wants to be the center of their partner’s world. If their partner doesn’t pay them all the attention they think they need, they may become upset or feel unloved. It isn’t odd for them to blow up at perceived slights. They need more attention than other signs, which can be a bit much for more sensitive individuals.
With that said Leos are extremely loyal and generous. Once they fall for someone, they stick to that person forever.
Leos prefer jobs that put them at the center of attention. While many Leos may actively seek to be famous, many are perfectly fine being “famous” at their company. While this can seem self-centered, it also means that they’ll do the work that needs to be done. They love external validation and will work for it.
Therefore, they’ll great workers and great leaders. They’re very charismatic, and people often love them. They work great in management positions, especially if they can be creative.
Jobs in the performing arts suit them well. Any public-facing career like advertising or media also suits Leos.
Leos tend to pick a career and stick to it. They prefer places they feel comfortable, so they aren’t prone to jumping from job to job. They’re extremely reliable for this reason. However, Leos also prefer jobs they’re passionate about. They’re very much driven by emotion, including when picking a career.
Compatibility with Other Signs
Everyone is an individual, even those with the same star sign. However, Leos do tend to work better with certain signs than others.
They work best with other fire signs. These signs are able to keep up with their energy and have the same passion for life they do. Therefore, they’re much less likely to be “burnt up” by Leo’s intensity.
Air signs also get along with Leos well. They’re able to adjust and stay dynamic, allowing them to flow with Leo. Air signs work particularly well in jobs with Leos when they allow Leo to take a leadership role. It allows the air signs to focus on the mental world, while Leo takes care of the team.
Water and earth signs often aren’t compatible with Leos, as you might guess. They aren’t able to adapt as well to Leo’s passion and may find their egotistical behavior a bit annoying. They also don’t like the glam that many Leos bring with them.
