Leo's ruling planet: ☼ Sun.
A person born under the zodiac sign of Leo has a spectacular knack for presenting themselves and revels in being the center of attention.
The easiest way to spot a Leo is at a party or a social gathering - they can be identified by the confident sparkle in their eyes and a leisurely, even lazy, stride. At home, alone with themselves, there's no one to show off their regal shine and glitter to, so they prefer to spend as much time among people as possible.
Looking at a person born under this noble zodiac sign, it's amazing how much they resemble a real lion: they are proud, majestic, well-groomed, and their manners are impeccable. Admittedly, they look a bit down on others, but such is their royal nature.
It's hard to say that Leos consider themselves superior or higher than others, but it's an undeniable fact that they feel more knowledgeable and experienced. Leo is convinced that they know how to act in any situation, and it's easy to read in their preachy tone and patronizing smile. Their propensity to teach and guide, whether it's about work or personal life, may even annoy those around them. However, Leo believes their intervention is justified as they sincerely want to help! Moreover, not only can Leo provide guidance, but they can also offer generous patronage, including financial support, which the people around them typically don't object to.
Interaction and people are the natural habitat for the expansive Leo, with which most of their life is intertwined. Perhaps this is why they are very concerned about what others think of them and have a particularly sensitive ego. Even fair criticism can upset them and inflict deep hurt, whereas simple recognition of merit, a routine compliment, or even crude flattery can make them soar.
However, in everything else that doesn't concern their person, Leos are quite objective and very smart. In business, they exhibit exceptional acumen and organizational talent, making them excellent employees and outstanding leaders.
In everything they undertake, Leo demonstrates their regal maximalism. If they're going to work, they're all in; if they're partying, they do so wholeheartedly; if they're hosting, they do so with lavishness and flair. The golden mean is not for Leo; they don't want to see restraint, be it in friendship, work, or love. For this reason, it's better to have the maximalist Leo as a friend rather than an enemy: restraining their righteous anger can be just as difficult for them as it is to curb their affections.
Strong, proud, noble, unyielding in the face of difficulties, Leo is always ready to lend a hand in a time of need. Fortune is generous to them, and Leo is no less generous to those who stand by their side.

Leo Communication Secrets
There are three reliable ways to capture the favorable attention of a Leo. Firstly, ask for their advice or assistance, as Leos adore being protectors. Show boundless gratitude for any help they provide, and make sure as many people as possible are aware of it.
Secondly, give compliments, and they don't necessarily have to be subtle. Something like "You are my sunshine and stars" is quite fitting, and there's no need to hold back. Even if a Leo understands that it's flattery, they still enjoy hearing it.
Thirdly, propose something unusual and fun. Leo embodies joyfulness and playfulness, so they will agree to any venture that promises new experiences and excitement. Their curiosity knows no bounds.
Despite Leo's inherent self-assurance, they are easily wounded. Although they may appear confident and unshakeable, they deeply feel it when their worth is underestimated or belittled. If you want to express disapproval, do it face to face and in gentle terms. Gain the Leo's favor, and you will always have a wise ally and protector by your side.
