You can hear the sound of her infectious laughter before she even walks in, and the moment that she does, heads turn; Her radiant smile lights up the entire room and all eyes are on her. Step aside gals, Leo Lady is in the house — in all her stunning glory!

Born between the 23rd of July and the 22nd of August, and governed by the Sun, this warm and witty lioness is the fifth sign of the Zodiac. Her essence, element, lucky color and gemstone can be visualized as a vibrant whirlwind of fiery golden hair, dazzling her spectators on a stage of glowing peridot and reveling in the limelight.

Her dominant Yang energy drives her playful spirit ever outward, with a keen focus on her environment and desire to immerse herself in and interact with it. She is fueled by an infinite well of energy and brimming enthusiasm for life, and her demeanor is upbeat and confident with a dramatic flair and magnetic charm.

With an insatiable desire to connect with the world around her, it is no surprise that her relationships are abundant and of utmost importance. Cheerful and humorous, Leo ladies are known to strike up lively conversations with anyone around and have a knack for making fast friends. With such a vast and dynamic social network, she’s bound to run into someone she knows no matter where she is.

Leo ladies hate to be ignored, and though they may at times come off a little self-centered or even narcissistic, they are actually one of the most thoughtful and generous signs in the Zodiac. Without a doubt, a Leo lady will be the first to encourage you and remind you of your strengths and talents when you are feeling down.

In Relationships

In relationships, a Leo lady is nurturing and passionate, often expressing her love with showers of gifts and grand gestures. She prefers a partner who can keep up with her intellectually, compliment her physically, and hold their own in social settings with an equal amount of appeal and charisma — as long as, of course, the spotlight is still her’s. She may require a lot of praise and adoration, but when she is in love she certainly reciprocates; Treat her like a Queen and you will be treated just so, and to her King or Queen she will be fiercely loyal.

In the Bedroom

Adventurous, fiery, electrifying, and an outrageous flirt, Leo lady fires up quickly to red hot and is ready anytime, anywhere.  One trick ponies are usually one night stands as this energetic, curious, tactile provocateur wants to explore and be explored in detail preferably with a partner or three to avoid constant training.  She understands sex as power and easily separates emotion out of the act, particularly when she’s interested in sex as entertainment.  Guilt-free, Leo ladies tend to start early and enjoy bragging rights, the kind generally thought to be exclusive to men’s locker rooms.  “I did the drummer”, rolls right off her tongue at a cocktail party as easily as it does in a whisper while seated in a church pew.  Make no mistake about it; while she herself is one helluva ride, she expects to be the center of attention.  And she’ll perform for you to make sure the focus stays right where she wants it – on her.  Sex is used like a feel good drug for the ladies of Leo, and it’s not until they fall deeply in love that they begin to make concessions in the bedroom, something as simple as not needing to be the center of attention all the time or possibly approving a menage-a-trois for her partner.  Not particularly inventive or original in the bedroom, Leo ladies are always open to suggestion.  She let’s you know how you’re doing vocally.  If she loves it, the neighbors will know, too; if not; the neighbors will know, too.

Career

Never chain a Leo lady to a desk! Bold and assertive with an unmatched aptitude for appeal, Leo ladies are natural born leaders who effortlessly inspire, influence, and command respect. Leo ladies are also remarkably creative and captivating performers, making them best suited for a career on stage or in front of the camera — at the very least, they are happiest as their own bosses. Leo ladies are strikingly ambitious and driven to succeed with whatever they set their eager and endeavoring minds to. They are industrious and enjoy feeling productive, as their hard work and determination never fail to pay off with an ever ascending status in their field and admiration for their contributions. Leo Ladies make fantastic actors, singers, musicians, dancers, fashion designers and motivational speakers.
