The sun is high in the sky and it is beating down on us - it’s time for Leos to be on the prowl! While these big cats are lounging in the sun, it’s the perfect time to do something for them to show how much we appreciate them!
Leos are passionate, protective, and showy personalities that love learning and sharing what they know with the people around them. Your Leo may be a lazy jungle cat who’s passionate for a good nap or they could be a competitive and daring go-getter that you can barely keep up with.
Either way, we have a ton of great options for unique gifts for the Leos!
What Type of Sign is A Leo?
July 23rd to August 22nd is the season symbolized by the stunning, regal lion. Often described as passionate, competitive, and brave, Leos love both the simple pleasures and the luxuries of life. After all, don’t they deserve both?
Associated with the element of fire, Leos are the true monarchs of the zodiac as they are typically very fiery, theatrical, and love to bask in any type of spotlight they can find. Fire signs excel as journalists, reporters, personal trainers, teachers, and politicians.
Fire sign traits, which also include Aries and Sagittarius, are commonly associated with
Governed by the Sun, the center of our universe that rules over the sense of self, creativity, and vitality. Leos are the perfect person to drag you out of your slump. They’re the type of person to come up with a spontaneous trip that will teach you things about yourself that you never knew! Sure, sometimes they can be a little self-centered, but if you were a Leo, wouldn’t you be too?
What Are The Characteristics of Leo?
Like a cat basking in the sunlight, Leos cannot resist the limelight. They’re bright and regal lions, so who wouldn’t want to see them in their splendor? Vivacious and competitive, you want to have a Leo on your team at all times!
Much like Geminis, Leos are always taking in information around them. They want to grow and evolve as well as share what they’ve learned with the people in their lives. Known for their bravery, Leos will never turn down a taunt or a challenge, so you have to keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t find themselves in too much trouble! They’re also very passionate and creative beings who can lose themselves in their craft. Sometimes, being so awesome can make a Leo a little….arrogant, self-centered, and stubborn. Give them a little time and they’ll simmer down after a bit!
