July 23 - August 23
Leo's ruling planet: ☼ Sun.
As is known, all women can be divided into two categories: loyal "dogs" and independent "cats." The Leo woman not only belongs to the latter but is the most regal and vibrant representative of the feline family. The Lioness is like a queen among her subjects, in her presence even the most confident man may feel a hint of shyness.
How to Win Over a Leo Woman
If you have set your sights on a Lioness, most men will understand you: her refinement, ability to dress and present herself inspire involuntary admiration. However, if you decide to win the proud heart of a Leo woman, sympathy is all we can offer you.
The fact is that the regal Lioness wants a true king by her side: polite, attentive, but most importantly, generous. A fancy restaurant instead of fast food, a dress from a boutique, a necklace from Tiffany's, tickets to the Bolshoi Theater for a premiere - this is the kind of lavish courtship plan that awaits you if you're in love with a Leo woman. And remember: all this provides no guarantees. The Lioness believes that she does you an honor by merely accepting your gifts and occasionally allowing you to be by her side.
Furthermore, don't forget about the immense competition for the hand and heart of a Leo woman! She adores attention and admiration, and usually has a sea of suitors. To stand out from this crowd, you will have to prove for a long time that you are indeed the most worthy and the best, and money and generosity are far from the only argument here. Learn to match the Lioness in both dressing tastefully and in the art of conversation, so she doesn't have to blush for you in public. Learn to give her sincere and beautiful compliments, frequently show your admiration, be considerate and tactful, and only then will you have a chance for reciprocity.
Relationships with a Leo Woman
Nonetheless, being the husband of a Lioness is worth any sacrifice, for you are marrying a royal personality, with all the resulting privileges. Starting with the fact that the Lioness is an excellent hostess, capable of furnishing your home with taste and luxury, and possessing an unmatched ability to entertain guests. It's quite possible that, having married her, you won't even notice how your career takes off - all because the Lioness "simply" invited your bosses to a couple of home parties.
At home, the Leo woman looks no less spectacular than on a runway. You won't get a chance to see her with a sour cream mask on her face or, even more so, in a sloppy robe. She has her own outfits for home, and her well-cared-for skin, hair, and nails look so natural that it seems as if it is a gift from nature. But in reality, the Lioness perfectly understands that the best cosmetics are not those that catch the eye and cover up flaws, but those that work from within. And believe me, you better not know how much her "natural" freshness and authenticity cost.
A Leo woman spends far from the majority of her time at home. She is a very active person and is unlikely to give up her career after the wedding. Even becoming the wife of an oligarch, she may continue to work. Or she may lead such an active social life that her bubbling activities can be fully equated with work. After all, it is important for the Lioness to be in the spotlight, so she can only envision herself in the role of a humble housewife in a nightmare.
The Lioness is noble, smart, and graceful, but it's better not to give her a reason for anger, let alone jealousy. An enraged Leo woman is like a fire: a beautiful sight, but very dangerous.
Don't think that, becoming the husband of a Lioness, you can completely tame her. It's simply impossible. Even if she curls up on your lap purring like a kitten, remember that in front of you is the proud queen of beasts. All you have left to do is to love her and genuinely admire her numerous virtues. After all, anyone would be happy to admire someone like her for a lifetime.
The Leo Mother
Despite her love for outings and social gatherings, the Lioness is a wonderful mother. After all, sitting up nights with a fussy baby is something a nanny can perfectly do (the Lioness would get dark circles under her eyes from it), but only the Leo woman knows how to find that fine line between adoration and strictness in communicating with her children, which is the pinnacle of parenting.
