Those born under the Zodiac Sign Leo (Simha), the fifth Sign in the Zodiac calendar, are represented by the mighty Lion. The proud kings of the Zodiac, the Leo are assertive, strong and proud. Self-confident, and courageous, they will hardly embark on a mission, if they do not see themselves on the top at the finish. Argument or failure to acknowledge their worth invokes sharp reactions from them.
Like the heart they are ruled by, these honest and charismatic individuals are generous often to a fault. Affectionate and often theatrical in their behaviour, the Lions' gregarious personalities easily stand out in a crowd. Plus, such is their persona that they rarely fail to make an impression! In fact, leaving a lasting impression on people's minds is a task they handle only too well, given the charisma they radiate. Leo are an ambitious lot, and their strength of purpose allows them to accomplish their goals. In their journey towards their goals, they may, however, become too fast-paced, overconfident or overbearing that they may lose their focus.
Although most of the Lions are outspoken, loud and brash, they are generous to the core. Their bluntness may many times offend people, but they try and make up for it by being chivalrous and caring. Lions are blessed with a strong aesthetic sense, not only with regard to the possessions, but also with the environment around them. The Leo-born are courteous and diplomatic, especially whenever the situation demands so. However, they are easily attracted to the rich, the bold, the famous, and the beautiful, and are easily seduced by material wealth and luxury. True to their symbol, they believe in leading a grandiose lifestyle! Give any Leo the best chair to sit on (possibly facing the wall mirror) when at home and the proverbial limelight with plenty of lights glowing - and you will have a purring and tamed big cat in front of you!
For the same reasons, professionally not suited for any lowbrow job, Lions do quite well in white-collar jobs, particularly as leaders or managers. A Lion's career graph may go upwardly, provided they choose the right field to be in. Addicted to a comfortable life, they see to it that they manage to earn enough to meet the needs. Dignified, strong, well-organised and idealistic, Lions' have this sense of power that allows them to get things done and even inspire others.
The Lions' creativity, idealism, leadership, boundless enthusiasm, ambition are their greatest assets. They are outgoing, confident and have generosity of spirit and a determination to succeed coupled with tremendous energy. Sometimes they may be vane and bossy to be regal, but regardless of appearance, they are also decisive, intensely proud and wonderfully romantic. Lions are status conscious, but at the same time, they are warm-hearted and want everyone to be happy.
They wine, dine and shower expensive gifts and roll out the red carpet all the way for their lover. Ideal life partners are found among Leo-Leo, Leo-Aries, Leo-Sagittarius and Leo-Aquarius pairs. However, if the married life should be as smooth sailing, the Leo will have to be less domineering and treat spouse as equal.
