Leos are born leaders and their ruling star is the Sun, a symbol of radiance, warmth, power, energy, and leadership. Leos love a materialistic and luxurious life and prefers a leading position in their workplace. Leo is a fire sign and is compatible with Aries and Sagittarius.
Leo's Personality traits
Before we discover the strength and weaknesses of Leo, Let us look at some of the basic personality traits that they possess.
Leos possess a charming personality. People get attracted to them and they have the ability to get their work done. They have an authoritative personality and can make others think their way.
They consider themselves as the King/queen, therefore are very kind by heart and like to help others. Leos are smart, down-to-earth, and understanding. Sometimes people may take their advantage and double-cross them which is all the more reason for them to keep an eye on the people around them and look for enemies in disguise.
Leo zodiac natives are open-handed and generous. Their personality makes them soft by heart, unlike their persona.
Social and Jovial
Leo star sign natives have a good sense of humour. These natives are surrounded by many people who admire them and appreciate them. As their zodiac symbol “lion” depicts them, they are the centre of attention in any group of professionals, officials, and friends because of their aura, energy, and radiant personality. Hence, they indulge themselves in many social activities.
Leos, as we found in the previous section, are charming and delightful for the most part, however, all of the zodiac signs have their own set of weaknesses. Weaknesses are what make us human and we need to learn to embrace them and if possible work on some of them. So let’s look at some of the weaknesses of the Leo Zodiac Sign.
Leo’s zodiac sign has a fire element and is full of arrogance. These natives entitle themselves as King or queen and that is the reason they don’t take anyone’s advice or suggestion. Rather they sometimes become a bit unreasonable and can be rude to anybody they do not admire much. Because of their arrogant behaviour, they unknowingly make enemies. When they get angry, they don’t bother about the people around them. In fact, they become extremely irritating that it is better if you leave them alone for a while.
Leos have a strong desire to be noticed and appreciated. If that does not happen their way, their ego gets hurt. And they are not bothered about the consequences when it comes to their ego. Leos are the most egoistic among the rest of the zodiac signs and hate to accept the second position. They become weak when something like that happens to them and fail to cope up with the situation. On the other hand, if they are recognised and admired, they get motivated and work with more passion.
Leo natives tend to dominate everyone around them. They like to rule everyone and everything. This may, sometimes, spoil their relationships and marriages. They cannot control their temper and are highly dominating in their professional and personal lives. The dark side of personality emerges when they have to face “no” from other people, this can be a friend, partner, or spouse, no matter in public or in person. They just get transformed into another person no one would like to live with. They also can’t admit their mistakes, because of this dominating persona they create for themselves.
Leo natives are known to speak their minds and do not welcome criticism. If they feel insecure due to any reason, they behave like children and can not deal with it smartly. They try to seek others’ attention and always prove themselves to be right. It is also very difficult for them to apologise after a mistake.
Lazy and immobile
Leo’s zodiac sign is lazy and immobile. These natives like to live a comfortable life. They wish to take work from others and do not prefer doing it on their own.
Leos are too stubborn. They decide what they want to do, and it doesn’t matter what others think about that, they are almost unshakable.
Leos are selfish to some extent. They think about their own needs first. Leo signs would not waste their time on worthless people and instead would prefer to be surrounded by influential, smart, intelligent, and classy people. They make relationships for gains and with some vested interest.
Now that we know the weaknesses a Leo can possess, let’s discover some of their strengths to understand their personalities better and find out why they are called one of the strongest signs of all.
