The Zodiac Chart is incredibly interesting.
Some people follow it and their horoscopes as if their future depends on it. Others feel its a load of crap. Some of us don’t believe the horoscopes but feel the birthsigns offer something unique to who we are as individuals. While I indulge in my horoscope once in awhile, I take it with a grain of salt. The signs under which we were born–well that’s something different altogether.
I’ve read in depth descriptions on all the signs and the only one I have ever fit is Leo (July 23-August 22). I was supposed to be born in early July which is a Cancer, but I wouldn’t budge. My mom was finally induced 3 weeks later and I came out July 28. I’ve read a Cancer sign but it doesn’t fit who I am. Many might be skeptical about all of this and that’s fine, but I am one of those moderate believers that likes to think I do fit into something that explains my personality. I’ve dated people of different signs and if they aren’t compatible with my sign (Taurus and Capricorn), often they haven’t worked–even friendships. On the flip side, I’ve had great relationships and friendships with signs a Leo is compatible with (Aries and Sagittarius).
I’m not saying we are completely defined by these signs, but it is fun to read the descriptions and find you fit completely into one.
Sandy Reitman got the Leo woman with absolute accuracy. I read this thinking it was spot on about me. Sure, other non Leo women might fit into this somewhat but not everything. So if you’re birthday falls in late July and August, enjoy what this has to say and see if it fits you.
7 Things You Need To Know about A Leo Woman
By Sandy Reitman of Elite Daily
While Leo’s time has come and gone this year, the sun never sets on a Leo woman. Leo is a fixed fire sign, and its members are born between July 23 and Aug. 22. And while 2015 might have been a rough year for some lions in the world, it wasn’t so for our Leo women.
All you Leo ladies out there are tough leaders with a real soft side. You might seem like a ferocious lion on the outside, but your inner cub is still in there.
You’re a combination of strong but sensitive, charismatic but careful, and elusive but predictable.
Famous Leo women include Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Sandra Bullock, Monica Lewinsky, Martha Stewart, Mae West, Lucille Ball, Kim Cattrall, Julia Child, Jacqueline Kennedy, J.K. Rowling, Halle Berry, Gillian Anderson and Emily Brontë.
Maybe you’ll follow the lead of these women. You might be the world’s largest pop star or one of the most famous female comedians of all time. Maybe you’ll be a writer or a chef. The options in the spotlight are endless.
If you know a Leo woman — or are one yourself — here are some things to remember:
1. Leo women are the leaders of the Zodiac.
You’re generally optimistic and seemingly fearless. You approach all situations head-on and are ready for anything.
If you’re with a group of hesitant people, you take action and lead everyone else through the door. You are the leader of your pack.
You manage everything that comes at you — whether that means planning a night out, handling the bill at a restaurant, or convincing people to stay out later. People put down what you’re putting out.
2. Leo women are the center of attention.
You’re the decision maker who’s always seeking approval. People look to you to make suggestions and execute plans.
At the same time, you’re always waiting for their praise. While you look confident on the outside, you’re very aware of how others perceive you.
You bring people together. And though you enjoy big groups of people, you enjoy going off on your own. You’re very sensitive about not making people feel left out, but you also like to be left to yourself.
You might even look like a Leo woman if you have big hair, loud outfits and dominant features that make you stand out from the crowd. You spend time and money on appearances, but you do this for yourself.
3. Leo women are sensitive.
You’re an emotional woman whose feelings can easily be hurt. While others might criticize your tough exterior, you thrive on praise. Your extreme confidence can mask insecurity.
It is essential for Leo women to show their vulnerable side in order to earn the respect from people around them. If you aren’t vulnerable, people will perceive you as confrontational and aggressive.
You’re also very sensitive to those around you. You’re easily affected by surrounding auras and often try to improve others’ feelings, even if it’s at the expense of your own.
Learning how to balance your “inner cub” with your “outer lioness” will be one of your most difficult challenges in life. Take time to process emotions before reacting. There’s a time and a place for your lioness to shine. But everyone really loves that cub.
4. Leo women are straightforward.
You’re not one to shy away from an argument. You have opinions and you make them heard. While you can be stubborn at times, you can also move on easily once something has been resolved. You don’t hold back, and you don’t hold a grudge.
You know what you want out of life, and you go for it. No one is getting in the way of your goals. While others might find this competitive, youare your only competition.
5. Leo women are wildly romantic.
You’re willing to go on the long hunt for that perfect kill. You want to explore all that the concrete jungle has to offer, but want to settle down someday. You enjoy being single and adventurous, but you’re often waiting to settle for the right one.
Your sex drive is strong, and you’re willing to try almost anything. You have a freak flag, and you let it fly. While you like being the center of attention outside the bedroom, you’re generous in the sack.
You don’t shy away from telling your friends about your sexcapades, but you prefer to keep some secrets to yourself. You can sometimes be a little shady, but you’d never hurt your loved ones.
Your relationships are deeply emotional. They’re wild rollercoaster rides of passion. You and your lovers fight, you argue, and you get jealous. But you really do love each other.
Leo women thrive on this passion, but it’s hard to find someone who can handle it. Never apologize for your intensity, for that’s what makes you YOU.
6. Leo women are great friends.
You’re often misunderstood, but you already know that. You’re a kind and loyal friend who is exceedingly generous and often overly protective.
You’re ambitious and take failure in stride. People enjoy being around you, and you add more to their lives.
7. Leo women get along.
I’m a Leo, so I understand the good and bad that comes with the territory. And Leo women generally get along with other Leo women. We’re in this together!
A Tennessee Williams quote perfectly describes life as a Leo: “Kill all my demons and my angels might die, too.”
We need to take time to understand ourselves and to find this balance. If we do this, then everyone else can appreciate our complexities. Never be ashamed of that Leo prowess.
