Proud, generous and creative. Leonians often need to keep themselves in check less they suffer from hubris or simply become overbearing. Leonians commonly find themselves in the role of managers or organises and they take to this with gusto and style. Leonians can also be quick to anger and sometimes prone to panics should plans go badly wrong. These negative traits and the signature Leo trait of impatience are all countered by the Leonian positive outlook and upbeat nature.
In a relationship Leonians are caring and kind but that urge to lead does not go away. There is the risk that they may seem to be domineering. Criticism often does not go down well. Leonians will bend over backwards to ensure their children are happy but can be rather traditional.
Leo individuals are hard workers but some will also be attracted to glamour and luxury. It is common to find Leonians in sports or physical jobs but also working with jewels and precious items. Leonians can make good bosses, expecting the very best but being willing to reward hard work generously.
