|Leo July 22 - August 21|
The creative and romantic Lion rules the Zodiac's House of Pleasure, insuring that any romp with this cat will include sensory as well as sensual delights. The playful Lion loves fun and is a supremely social animal. If Leos can act out their fantasies on a public (even private) stage, all the better, for those born under this sign truly believe they're the star. As befits the King/Queen of the Zodiac, Leos are leaders and their powerful presence, as well as staying power, insures them success in their conquests. Romance is also a princely quality for the Lion, and those who ensnare this passionate animal may well be rewarded with a wonderful and inventive lover. Like the ruling Sun, which is at the center of the universe, Leos love to have the world revolve around them.
Affairs of the heart will quickly take on a "me first" quality with the Lion, since they truly believe they are the best and must come first. Leos love to feel good, as befits royalty, so they will respond exceptionally well to pampering and flourishes. While Leos loves to be admired and adored, they can also take the lead in romance, since they believe their strength and power will win the day. When the Lion gets going, watch out! Passionate fireworks will fly, since these folks know how to turn on the charm, and the heat. Since all the world's a stage to the prancing, dancing Lion, fun, excitement and a little razzle-dazzle are all part of their repertoire. Leos are willing to gamble where romance and love are concerned, since losing is not in their vocabulary.
A relationship with the daring, yet devoted, Lion will rarely prove dull. This showy cat may need to be lavished with attention, but can also ravish a lover with riches in return. A slow, smoldering pas de deux which leads to mutual bliss is what the Lion would love from a partner. The fiery Lion requires a lover who can keep up with them, and certainly one who can match wits. If not, the risk of boredom and flight is a big one, since Leo has very high expectations. A partner who can understand, and indulge, the Lion's need to be the center of attention will be a keeper for this regal cat. The ideal Leo soulmate understands the pleasure principle and will work hard to keep their mate satisfied.
The strength and amorous prowess which Leos possess makes them a natural leader in the dance of love. This cat may want to rule, but it also wants to be admired, which makes for a love filled with sexual tension. Even so, the Lion's generous and giving nature makes certain that a lover will feel special. The Lion may test a lover from time to time in their quest for answers about love: what is is really? how can I feel it the most? The one with the best answers to these questions will surely make this cat purr. Love is a most attractive state for Leos, since the pleasure, attraction and fun of the game are all qualities which make the Lion glow.
As befits a Fire sign, there is a great physicality, white heat and ardor which emanates from the Lion -- in the right circumstances. The Lion wants action first and foremost, and if the moves are being made on them, all the better. When Leos are being made love to, slow, steady love, they are flattered into a state of ecstasy. This kind of approach will help create a Lion who is a very confident lover. Leos are utterly aroused when a partner revels in their beauty and aura and tells them how wonderful it is. As their gracious gift, the Lion will show their partner just how much that compliment meant! The Lion loves foreplay, and a well-placed mirror or two would be nice, too, since that flowing mane and cat-like quality are begging to be watched.
What Leo Needs
What the King/Queen of the Jungle wants more than anything else is to be fawned over. Being a devoted sort, the Lion will return this gesture in kind, making a partner feel special, indeed. A lover who comes bearing gifts, exudes class and remembers that it's nothing but the best for this stellar cat is clever and wise. The one who can bring out the true Lion, which is often hiding behind the glare of white lights and preening to an adoring crowd, will do both of them a favor. In the end, Leo's lover must always remember who is number one and act on this all the time. The Leo lover is giving and devoted, and lives for the pleasures that life can bring. One of these is putting them squarely in the spotlight, where they believe they truly belong. Anyone willing to bask in the Lion's warm glow is in for a red-hot time!
