"I am Leo, hear me roar," would perhaps be a better paraphrase of that old song. Have you heard any roaring recently? Chances are if you know a Leo woman you would have. Or, if you are lucky and have been very, very good, perhaps you might even have been subject to some purring instead.
You can usually pick out a Leo woman from a crowd - she's the one with the loudest laugh, the brightest smile, and the most confident strut of them all. Ruled by the Sun, the center of the universe, this feline sign adores attention and usually gets it. She is passionate, playful, and very lively. Occasionally hot-tempered, a Leo woman can and will get those claws out if you step out of line, so handle Kitty with care! When in a fiery mood, she is best soothed with compliments and spoiled with gifts.
The lioness is intelligent, witty, strong and creative, which is why there are so many Leo women in the arts and entertainment industries. Famous Leo women roaring their way to success include Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Madonna, and J. K. Rowling.
Understanding Leo Woman
Leo is a dramatic sign with some fundamental contrasts. Overall they are straightforward and highly predictable once understood.
On the surface Leos are one of the most confident and aggressive signs. Fearless, charismatic and powerful. They're some of the optimists and leaders of the Zodiac, always seeing the good over the bad, and often wanting to take charge and be noticed. They have a flair for the dramatic and often enjoy being the center of attention.
Gaining the respect and admiration of others is what makes the Leo woman tick, and she has the perfect toolset to do it: Dramatic, warm hearted, outgoing, passionate and impulsive. Most feel the powerful presence of a Leo woman almost immediately.
Love & Leo Woman
There are no two ways about it for Leo women - it is an all-or-nothing deal. This intensity and passion, which manifests in every aspect of her life, has its greatest focus in her love life. Everything that books and movies depict love to be, you have the highest chances of finding, with a Leo woman. This means a roller coaster ride of extreme highs and profound lows. This means Big Love, the kind that rocks foundations and shatters stars. She will place her love in the center of her universe, but she will also demand that this be reciprocated, and she will not settle for anything less. Leos tend to fall in love easily, and when she falls, she falls hard, and completely. This is not to say she is easy or that she will settle for just anyone, but when the right suitor strikes her fancy, it's easy for her to submit to the love feelings. A territorial lover, Leo women can tend towards the possessive, so beware the catty claws.
Love is important to the Leo woman. Very important. The physicality is a bond, and also is the primary way you can show how desirable she is. Leos love lingerie, and most Leo women love to take charge in the bedroom. She is adventurous and up for anything. A Leo woman is fiery and has a strong love drive. She is highly skilled in love making, and both demands and gives satisfaction to her partner. This sign rules the spine, back, and heart, so seduce a Leo woman by gently caressing her skin, fingertips brushing her lower back.
Relationships & Leo Woman
The Leo woman, when in a relationship, is very faithful to her partner. She expects her partner to be an equally devoted, unique, independent, and strong individual. The lioness is not looking for a caregiver, but for a fellow hunter, a mate to stalk the urban jungle with. In return, she will be loyal, generous, and warm. A relationship with a Leo woman will always be fun - she hates routine and will constantly be thinking up ways to inject change and drama into your shared lives. Yes, it will feel like playing with fire at times, but the edgy, slightly-dangerous, never-know-what-will-happen-next adrenaline rush you get from being with a Leo woman is worth it. Trust me, the Leo woman is a lot of woman and you will never be bored. Leo women are most compatible with the signs Gemini, Sagittarius, and Libra.
Friendships & Leo Woman
The main characteristics of Leos are their zest for life and warm spirit. Admirers flock around their energy and enthusiasm. A Leo woman is typically a social butterfly, her black book crammed with contacts, her diary often double booked. And no wonder, because Leos are generous creatures and tend to pamper their friends luxuriously. A Leo woman is the ultimate gal pal. She will stick by her girlfriends and forgive everything but the most serious of transgressions, which, to the Leo woman, is betrayal.
Fashion & Leo Woman
Padding around with exquisite, lithe grace, you can expect the queen of the jungle to be sartorially perfect at all times. Leos love luxury; however clothes and accessories must not only be expensive, but also exclusive. A Leo woman will never look common or vulgar because she has excellent taste. Style is important, and so are the finer things in life. Leos can carry off the most dramatic and extreme of fashion trends because of their innate confidence. The self assurance that convinces them they look good in anything also helps. She loves fabrics like silk, cashmere, perfectly tailored cuts and, occasionally if she can afford it, luscious floor length gowns dripping with diamonds. Accessories are the Leo woman's way of standing out from the crowd. Her hair is her mane, and she is proud of it. Nothing works wonders for the Leo woman's self-confidence than a trip to the hairdresser. Look out for an unusual pair of shoes, embellished with sequins and feathers, and a statement necklace made of shimmering stones. Chances are they will be worn, with aplomb, by a Leo woman.
