Chinese astrologists centuries ago interpreted the mythical Dragon as a symbol of luck, dignity and power. This creatures good fortune and nobility are believed to be bestowed on all the people born in the Chinese Year of The Dragon. A Leo Dragon in particular seems to gain lots of the Dragon’s noble persona. This makes these personalities rather dignified and refined without being aloof, moody or too over confident. The Leo Dragon is especially regal with these two majestic creatures in his or her personality composition. These people are usually leaders rather than followers but are not too forceful with their characters.
Leo Dragon Traits
A Leo Dragon can be a little dreamy about life, they have an upbeat positive view but are sometimes accused of not taking things seriously enough. These individuals may sometimes lack sensitivity to how their actions and words can affect others. They try to be understanding and compassionate but usually end up saying or doing the wrong thing. The Leo Dragon can be rather shy underneath their seemingly confident disposition and so often need gently coaxing into friendships and relationships. They like to take their time to get to know people and are only truely happy when with those they really trust around them.
The Leo Dragon usually has a high degree of intelligence that they frequently put to good use by planning ahead. These personalities like to have set routines and an organized lifestyle as they go through life. They will often have a better idea than most people of what they want from their lives and how they wish it to go. Potential partners of the Leo Dragon will generally have to be compromising of their ambitions, hopes and dreams. As parents these Leo’s tend to encourage and pass on to their children this ambitious streak.
With his good organizational skills and intellectual personality the Leo Dragon is happier in work that is challenging mentally. These individuals are not usually keen or suited to manual work they prefer the demands of more imaginative challenges. Leo Dragon’s are mostly sensible with money, like to save and rarely overspend. They have good heads for figures and quick at calculating them so they tend to always think at least twice before they buy anything. In their leisure time these Leo’s are more inclined towards quiet relaxation methods and are not adverse to spending time alone. They will ask for, and appreciate, books, music or pampering products for gifts to help them relax.
In general the Leo Dragon is relatively easygoing but he does have a proneness to a quick temper and even quicker tongue. When engaged in disagreements these people are likely to fly into a rage especially if they believe that they are in the right. They are personalities that do not provoke arguments but they do like to win them and can be sore losers if they don’t. This Leo Dragon’s character weakness usually deteriorates with age and their tempers and tongues mellow. They become a bit more patient and usually overcome this tendency to lose control.
Leo Dragon Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Despite being overly self-involved, Leo Dragons are actually very warm and giving to those they are close to. They impress others naturally and can make friends with just about anyone. Their endless need for attention and appreciation are the only real downsides to their personality, but their closest friends not only accept this about them, they actually see it as an amusing quirk. Leo Dragons more than make up for their self-centricity when they are engaged with others. They can make anyone feel special with minimal effort and have little trouble enticing others into being intrigued by them.
Love can be a big challenge for Leo Dragons because they don’t exactly believe in equality. In relationships they like to be in charge, and sometimes treat their partners as their employees. Leo Dragons usually choose passive partners for this reason who will listen to their stories without interruption and won’t argue back when members of this sign exert their “authority”. Being able to be an equal in a long-term relationship is one of this sign’s greatest life challenges, but conquering this challenge is also one of their greatest life purposes. Likewise, those who find themselves considered the “weaker” half of the partnership will most likely move on to more favorable situations.
Leo Dragon Business (Career & Goals)
It’s difficult to pin down a preferred career choice for Leo Dragons simply because they are so highly capable of conquering any challenge. What members of this sign must be the most careful of is chasing a dream for the sake of the ego rather than for the heart. Luckily this sign is very connected to the heart and as long as they don’t create dreams of grandeur, they should be successful in whatever field they choose.
That said, there are a few specific roles that fit this sign particularly well. Artistic Leo Dragons have some of the best chances of all Primal Zodiac signs in taking their hobby to a professional level. Unlike quieter and more muted signs, Leo Dragons have the X-factor to their interactions and expressions that give them a distinct edge with art critics and buyers (such as famous Leo Dragon Andy Warhol).
As natural leaders, this sign is built for management and political roles, though these are the very roles that may be more satisfying to the ego than the heart. Leo Dragons require adventure, which is why some choose to take on some of the most difficult or dangerous careers, such as film making, war reporting, or literally rising above all others as an astronaut.
