Every year, between July 23 and August 22, the sun passes through Leo—the fifth zodiac sign, signified by the regal Lion. Summertime draws our attention away from to-do lists and organizational details and toward spontaneous get-togethers with friends, whimsical, impromptu road trips, vacations (or staycations), summer romance, and posting poolside thirst traps—all the fun, lighthearted pleasures of the sunniest season.


Leo, a fire sign linked with brightness, love, confidence, buoyant and good vibes, and the desire to take bold action or make ordinary life into a vibrant, colorful, drama-packed stage, informs this passionate, fun-loving attitude. The sun, Leo’s ruling bright celestial body, controls image, identity, personal style, vitality, self-esteem and is responsible for these characteristics.

Everything you need to know about the dependable, generous, and charismatic zodiac sign is right here.

1. Personality traits of Leo


People born between July 23 and August 22 are known as Leos. While we often refer to ourselves as our sun sign, it’s only one component of a natal chart, which is essentially a unique snapshot of the sky at the time of your birth. However, it’s a detail that contributes to your overall sense of self, identity, personal style, self-esteem, and confidence.

  • The star of the zodiac

Confident, at ease in the spotlight, drama-loving, ambitious, devoted, passionately protective of their loved ones, generous, luxury-loving, sunny, and big-hearted are all characteristics associated with the sun in Leo. Their traits correspond to Leo’s Fifth House of Romance and Self-Expression.

  • The natural-born leader

Because the sun’s vitality-giving, confidence-building influence is so strong on Leo’s personality, the fire sign gravitates toward opportunities to put on whatever real or symbolic show they’re inclined to. They’ll easily transition into an executive role, leading a team from the front of any room.

But, just as eagerly as they seek to lead and soak up attention and applause, they’ll shine their blinding, eternally warm inner light on those around them. Throw themselves into planning a lavish celebration for a loved one, donating time and money to a favorite charity, or planning a romantic anniversary getaway with their true love.

  • The fixed fire sign

Every sign has a quality—cardinal, mutable, or fixed—that describes the core energy. Leo is the fixed fire sign, which means they have a hard-headed, uncompromising, and rock-steady attitude. They are prone to be set in their ways and may require additional encouragement to alter their direction in the middle of a journey.

Leos in your life may help you find the bright side of any circumstance, making you feel energized and ready to take on the world. They are vibrant, dominate the stage in ways that entertain, engage, and inspire others, are self-assured, and enthralling to be around.

They’re the lovely bosses with a huge heart who realizes that a healthy work-life balance is the most crucial factor in maximizing productivity. They’re the friend who will pursue a long-held desire they’ve had since junior high and then make it a reality.

3. Worst personality traits of Leo

Leo’s natural self-assurance and assertive, commanding demeanor can occasionally become problematic. They can be egotistical, arrogant, self-obsessed, bossy, and greedy to an unhealthy degree. They can be annoyingly narrow-minded when they lack self-awareness, prone to unjustified and raging egomania.

They can also fall into a depressed state if they don’t feel like getting the attention, credit, or respect they deserve. The solution is to perfect their self-love and self-care regimen.

4. Love and relationships of Leo


Even in relationships, Leos prefer being the centre of attention. That is why they appreciate a devoted partner who will lavish them with devotion, love, and physical affection. But they’re just as generous as they are attention-seeking—Leo’s romantic characteristics make them fantastic gift-givers who revel in extravagant declarations of love.

They enjoy flaunting their relationships, so don’t expect them to avoid PDA. If a Leo feels valued and recognized in a relationship, they can be loyal partners who make their spouses feel like royalty.

5. If your sun sign is Leo

Your gregarious attitude attracts a lot of attention if Leo is your sun sign, which is the thing you want the most. Because self-expression is essential to you, it’s easy for you to get caught up in lofty job goals or dramatic artistic endeavors, and you won’t settle for second best.

You want people to recognize your abilities and hard work, so you understand that you must sometimes be your own biggest cheerleader. Even while Leos are known for their hard work, they are also very cheerful and exude a childish sense of enthusiasm and optimism about life, making any time spent with them feel unique.

A Leo’s pride is admirable, but watch out for your assertiveness of confidence developing into vanity or arrogance in the eyes of others. It’s normal to feel insecure at times, and there’s no need to overcompensate by pretending to be better than everyone else. Be yourself, and remember that humility is a virtue.

6. If your moon sign is Leo

Your moon sign is a symbol for your more intimate, emotional, and vulnerable side, as well as what makes you feel safe. If your moon sign is Leo, you are passionate and performative when it comes to your emotions. You have joyous highs, as well as dramatic lows when you feel something. Acting, singing, songwriting, and other creative hobbies or performance art, can help Leo moons process their feelings.

7. If your rising sign is Leo

Your rising sign reflects your public face and the version of yourself that you show to the world. If Leo is your rising sign, you have a striking, if not dazzling, a presence that commands attention and respect.

You value the ability to express yourself through your appearance, so you’re inclined to go toward sexier or otherwise attention-getting appearances—you’re not afraid to be the crown gem. You enjoy the finer things in life, but you also radiate a joyful warmth that attracts others and makes you pretty popular.
