The Leo Man: July 23 - August 22
by Susan Miller
Ruled by the Sun, giver of life and strength,
the Leo man is gregarious and warm-hearted. He is impossible
not to notice. His powerful masculinity and commanding presence
will be felt immediately, and his sense of showmanship and drama
make him sexy and charismatic. He may work in the arts (especially
the theater), or do some sort of creative work. He will probably
head up a division of a company, if not the entire corporation.
Leo men are leaders, not followers.
Leos are a bit self-absorbed and their egos are huge. Yet
they are so warmhearted and loving that these faults will
look trivial in the grand overview. He is jealous and possessive,
especially in the courting stage, so you will need to find
ways to derail his wrath if you plan to date others simultaneously.
One thing that Leo doesn't entertain, is the possibility of
being Number Two. He'd rather walk.
How To Handle Him
Gaining the admiration and respect of others is the single
most important aspect of the Leo personality for you to keep
in mind. This is their driving force, winning out over money,
fame and just about anything else. Another aspect of their
nature is their love of children and their intolerance of
criticism about them from others. Say something detracting
about a Leo's child and you will get a glimpse of the mighty
lion's temper. If he runs low on cash, he won't accept a loan
from you, so don't be bewildered or get hurt feelings, if
this happens. Leo prides himself in being self-sufficient.
Things To Do, Gifts To
Since Leo likes the best of everything, have some cold champagne
(with a good label) on ice nearby, some lightly toasted bread
and a tiny jar of imported caviar on a silver tray with your
best china and crystal. Your Leo lover likes luxury. Your
bedding should be new and fresh -- never threadbare. Leo also
appreciates flowers, but since he puts a premium on uniqueness,
make them exotic or don't bother.
Leos have a strong sense of drama and presentation,
so if you go to a restaurant, choose one which is hotly reviewed,
frequented by beautiful people and offers four-star quality.
(This is going to be hard on your wallet, I know!) Start the
evening off by complementing him on something he did recently
or how great he looks. Be sure you look great too--Leo wants
someone fabulous on his arm. (You'll rarely hear a Leo scold
his lady for spending too much on herself.) Don't bring up
other beaux or talk about those of your past. Your lion is
ruled by the Sun and wants to be the center of your universe.
He won't tolerate competition--present, past or future!
This sign rules teaching, and no other sign
can quite match Leo's ability here. Use this talent by begging
him to show you new things to do together in bed. He likes
to be in charge anyway, and this will only enhance his natural
inclination. When you become intimately involved with him
you will find the Leo male needs a great deal of attention
and adoration. An exciting and accomplished lover, he will
expect you to spend a considerable time on him. Yet his loyalty,
devotion and extreme generosity to you will win you over,
and soon you'll find yourself looking for ways to satisfy
his every need.
Give your Sun-ruled lover a gold pocket watch
or sophisticated gold lighter, since Leo rules gold. Or, since
this sign rules theater, tickets to the best Broadway show
in town, or to the opera. He loves to dress in black tie (he
is the ultimate sophisticate), so give him a good reason to
Since music is a high priority on his list,
check out which new CD titles he would most like to own, but
get him Ravel's Bolero too, if he doesn't have it. This is
perfect for Leo because of the dramatic, throbbing beat. Later
that night, show him what Bolero was made for: you, after
your slow flamenco-styled strip-tease tango.
