Leo. They love a good challenge and their egos can't take failure. Be it a regular physically challenge or just any other challenge, they will take it up and they'll risk everything to win that one challenge which makes a Leo very reckless and careless and dangerous.
Aries. This spontaneous sign never thinks before they act. "Both impulsive and impatient, Aries are the ultimate thrill seekers, driven by their need to get their next adrenaline fix," says astrologer, clairvoyant and spiritual coach Tara Bennet.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
This sign's worst fears are to under-perform and to let people (including themselves) down. Their personal identity, including their confidence level, tends to be located entirely outside themselves. They take in other people's opinions as their own. But this can be a valuable lesson for Leo.
Leos are known to be egoistic, stubborn and aggressive when triggered. One thing Leos hate is others telling them what to do as they know the best.
Typical sun in Leo traits include being confident, comfortable being the center of attention, drama-adoring, ambitious, loyal, fiercely protective of their nearest and dearest, generous, luxury-loving, sunny, and big-hearted.
One of the weaknesses of the Leo star sign is the lack of self-awareness. A Leo often needs to be first and sometimes, they can't help but be first - even if it's at the expense of other people.
Most #Leos are loners. They choose solitude because they know that not many people can match their emotional intensity. This behavior can be misunderstood by many as being standoffish or antisocial. The truth is they don't want to get hurt.
Leos are known to be generous, but they're also very competitive. A dark side Leo trait is schadenfreude —smiling inside when others are down on their luck. It's worse when they act like they're sorry, and it's over-the-top insincere. Leos throw temper tantrums, especially if they feel dissed.
Why can Leos be so hard to date? Leos like to talk about themselves quite a bit, and they can get fixated on their own problems, without being aware that the other person may also have troubles that they're dealing with.
Another sign that a Leo woman is hurt is that she'll become more critical of you. She may start picking apart your words and actions and may even find fault in things that she never did before. This is because when a Leo woman is hurting, she often starts to see the person who hurt her in a negative light.
Leo: Monophobia or fear of being left alone
You love it when the whole world revolves around you and the spotlight is all over you. Being ignored or left alone makes you anxious and uncomfortable.
Leos don't feel threatened by other people's success and are pretty secure and content with their lives. They only get jealous, when their loved ones, particularly their partner, don't pay attention to them and instead devote their energies on someone else.
It is impossible to break Leo's confidence and make them feel insecure. They are madly in love with themselves. They always have a very high self-esteem and are not afraid of being in the spotlight. They will love to be the centre of attention and show their confidence to the world.
That's the Gemini experience in a nutshell. Appropriately symbolized by the celestial twins, this air sign was interested in so many pursuits that it had to double itself. Because of Geminis' intrinsic duality, they're often falsely misrepresented as two-faced.
They often fall in love too quickly, which makes it quite common for a Leo to fall in love with the wrong person. However, once they are in love, they are fiercely loyal until they get some solid reason to stop being loyal.
Generally, the most compatible signs for Leo friendships and romantic relationships are fellow fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) as they'll match their passion and heat. Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) also have dynamic, fast-paced energy and could work well for a Leo.
They love making friends and are natural-born leaders. However, Leos have a tendency to believe that they are never wrong, which makes them really difficult to be around in general, let alone be friends with. Although fiercely loyal and generous, Leo is also known to be self-involved and jealous.
Toxic trait: Undue drama
Leo is ruled by the sun and thus adept at commanding attention and shining a powerful light on causes and conditions close to their hearts.
Leo. Not the most patient with being told what to do or others' opinions about their lives, Leos have a notorious reputation for being short-tempered. While it is true that you are easily forgiving of others' behaviour, it helps to assume responsibility for your own actions as well.
If you ever get in an argument with a Leo, don't expect an apology. Much like a lion, they are built on pride, and are as stubborn as they come. Just as you wouldn't mess with a lion, don't mess with Leos because they will always forgive, but will never forget.
Leos are territorial and will hate it if someone else steps in. A Leo wants to take care of all of your needs, no matter what—this is a deeply ingrained personality trait. If you ask another guy to help you with something, even a small task, your man will be jealous and wonder why you didn't ask him for help instead.
It's easy to assume that a Leo's sense of confidence is unshakable, but these cosmic lions actually have surprisingly fragile egos, and it can be hard for them to take criticism gracefully. If they feel like they're not getting the credit or attention they deserve, they'll quickly become sulky, sad, and sensitive.
