Leos jump headfirst into life, without worrying whether their latest goal is realistic or practical. They tend to seek power more than other Signs, and because of this people sometimes feel they are obnoxious, boastful, self-centered, or rude. But despite their sometimes hotheaded or cutting response, Leos are cheerful. They are always happy as long as someone is paying attention to them. Pleasure is important to people born under Leo, and they like to spend money to feel good. At their extreme, some Leos can be vain and childish or overbearing in their reactions.

Leo's great need is to create. People born under this Sign have the vitality and ambition to be successful in their creative endeavors. They tend to be opinionated, but they have a strong ability to see their projects through to the end. Leos may be arrogant or egotistical, but they are good organizers and tend to be popular and even inspiring. They sometimes feel they are the center of the universe. They are gregarious and social, fun-loving, and live life with enthusiasm. As leaders, Leos are decisive and direct, optimistic that they will succeed. Sometimes they exaggerate problems and overreact to stumbling blocks, but generally they are positive and their natural pride and stubborn streak keep them from giving up. They can be demanding leaders, but they are also generous.

The great strength of the Leo-born is in their creativity and generosity with others. Sometimes these two can combine, resulting in thoughtful gifts or unique solutions to problems.

Their creative and theatrical natures make them among the most flamboyant characters of the Zodiac.
