Leo relationships

At best warm‐hearted and large‐hearted, Leos inspire confidence and good feelings in others. They don’t bear a grudge and, being buoyant and enthusiastic, don’t get crushed or defeated easily when things go wrong. However, much of their confidence and seeming display of courage is mere show and bluff. Like most cats, they appreciate being stroked and hate to be ignored but they need to make efforts not to take centre stage all the time. In relationships others have to be willing to act as their own special audience!

Leo romance

Leo is a romantic sign and lions tend to like doing things in big, impressive ways. Leo tends to be very loyal to those they are involved with and, being rather proud, won’t easily admit to ’failure’ in their relationships or indeed in any other life areas. Their pride can often also prevent them discussing what is going on and being rather ‘know‐it‐all’ they don’t usually think other people (even their partner) would be able to help much, if they did enter into discussion. On the plus side, Leos are very romantic and can be very warm and affectionate. This can mean that their partners stay. The Lions also usually adore their children and would never willingly leave them.
