Leo star sign traits and personality

Warm-hearted Leos are always up for a good time.

Passionate, generous and cheerful, they are people you want to surround yourself with.

They're ruled by the sun which is the centre of the galaxy and similarly, they consider themselves the centre of attention and indispensable.

They consider themselves "king or queen of the jungle" because they are strong leaders and extremely dominant.

But can sometimes make them come across as arrogant. That said, they will always ensure they are surrounded by plenty of friends.

Leos are generally charming, warm, protective, funny, welcoming and great company.

They are naturally regal and like to take the lead in a relationship or group dynamic.

However, they can be jealous, controlling and possessive at their worst.
