Leos are natural leaders who often take charge of situations and inspire others with their ambition and charisma.


Leos are known for being confident and people-pleasing. They have a strong sense of self and prioritize expressing their individuality. They’re often optimistic and a bit overenthusiastic.

Leo people are often protective and loyal (sometimes to a fault). However, they can also be stubborn and proud. They don’t like to be criticized or ignored, even if it is just in their mind.

Here are some of the more positive traits of a Leo:

  • Confident: Leos are incredibly secure, with naturally high self-esteem. Much of this comes from their people-pleasing nature and natural leadership ability. They aren’t afraid to take risks due to their confidence. They’re also very persuasive (you can only be around their confidence for so long before it starts rubbing off on you).
  • Generous: Leo people are big-hearted, which often leads to much generosity. They love to share their wealth and generosity with others. They’re also quite generous with praise and compliments, which helps with their extroverted nature.
  • Creative: For one reason or another, Leos also tends to be extremely creative. They are very in touch with their selves, which leads to a flair for drama and entertainment. They enjoy expressing themselves in just about any form.

However, Leos can also have some negative traits:

  • Self-absorbed: Leos can be very self-centered. They may be described as egotistical and narcissistic. They tend to assume everything revolves around them (and can be quite disappointed when it doesn’t). They are often arrogant and boastful, which can rub many the wrong way.
  • Insecure: Leos can be insecure and sensitive because they rely so much on others’ opinions (though they don’t like to show it). They require constant validation and may seek it in a very annoying manner. If rejected or criticized, they may react very dramatically.
  • Jealous: Leo people can also be extremely jealous, especially of the accomplishments and praise of others. They want to be the center of attention and get very upset if they aren’t.

Because of their personality, Leos tend to fall into certain career paths. They’re often very driven and ambitious, so they like to have a career that showcases their abilities. As natural leaders, they tend to fall into leadership roles in whatever field they choose.

They often prefer to be involved in creative or social careers. Here are some careers that they tend to do well in:

  • Entrepreneur: These individuals often have a visionary spirit, which makes them suitable for starting their own businesses. They’re also risk-takers who can handle challenges.
  • Teacher: Leos have a passion for people and enjoy sharing their knowledge. Therefore, they’re natural teachers, especially for older children and college students. They are charismatic, which also makes them fairly good teachers.
  • Writer: Because they are creative, Leos also make good writers. They love telling stories, too, thanks to their charismatic nature. Therefore, they may be authors of any kind.
  • Actor: Their charisma and creative nature make them great actors. They love to entertain others and are often confident enough to succeed.

July 30 Relationship Strengths and Weaknesses

Leos tend to be extremely romantic and passionate. Therefore, they make great partners and often strive to be in a relationship. They are very loyal and faithful, but they expect the same. They can also be prone to jealousy, which is never a good thing.

Those born on this day often like to have fun. They love adventure dates and trying new things with their significant others. They are playful and enjoy people who are the same.

Due to their generosity, Leos tend to lavish their partners with gifts and praise. However, they like partners who do the same and may feel ignored if this need isn’t met.

Leos can also be extremely stubborn and inflexible, which can cause rifts in the relationship. They prefer to have things their way and don’t compromise quickly. They can be a bit bossy and overwhelm more sensitive souls.

In some ways, they may also be self-centered in their relationships. They tend to put their own needs and desires first. In fact, they may not even realize that their partner feels differently or has different needs.

Leos get along best with fire and air signs.


Leos work best with certain signs based on their personality traits and tendencies. They need signs that mesh well with them while also standing up to their more narcissistic traits.

They do well with other fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), as their dynamic, passionate energy matches. These signs can keep up with each other. They also have a similar need for independence, which can make the relationship more understanding.

However, fire relationships can also burn a bit too fast. They may be a bit explosive.

Leo and air signs can also get along. They are often playful, and their intellectual energy can inspire Leos further. Leos often like intellectual conversations, though that isn’t a core part of their personality. Air signs can also help balance Leos, as they aren’t as fiery.

However, Leos tend to get along less well with earth and water signs.

Earth signs are extremely practical and conservative, which contrasts with Leos. They are often rigid and a bit “boring” for a Leo. They prefer stability and may not like how much a Leo jumps around. Earth signs can be very stable and loyal (like a Leo). However, they often just don’t mesh well.

Water signs have similar difficulties. They’re emotional and intuitive, which makes them a bit different from a Leo. They may be too clingy or moody for Leo’s liking, and they don’t value independence in the same way. Furthermore, they tend to value different things (intimacy vs. fun).
