The Leo woman has a regal air and a good-natured bigness to her personality. The light she shines draws men and women like bees to honey.

As a Zodiac sign, Leo is Sun-ruled, and her warmth at times seems supernatural like she has her own secret light source. She was born in the Summer when fruit is at its most ripe. She is juicy that way, and sun-kissed. This gives her power to create and shine powerfully, asserting her presence in the world.

Leo in love is loyal, demanding and affectionate. She'll notice your tone of your voice, like whether you're sincere or not. Leo's have a way of spotting a fake a mile away.

Her Majesty

She's the life of any party, wherever she goes, turning the most ho-hum places (like a bank queue) into a fun scene. She is an inspired fire sign and naturally vivacious. As a fire sign, she likes to act spontaneously and is very creative. She's got a big healthy sense of self-confidence and is attracted to the same. Her nature is very giving, and she gives to herself most of all.

Leo women love to be admired, for their special uniqueness. Win her by loving what's unique about her style, her story, the way she lives. Show up on time, or face a reckoning. Respect is big with her, and being overlooked, underestimated, or taken for granted is not soon forgotten.

Keep in mind that she's a fixed fire sign—there's a certain stubbornness to the proud Leo.

As a fixed sign, she seeks stability in love and life. If she's not feeling adored, she'll kick you out of her realm.

Living Large

Like the song goes, I'm not saying Leo is a gold-digger, but she loves fine things. If you're able to lavish her with gold or anything fine, she takes notice. If you enjoy acquiring luxuries, this is a pursuit you'll share.

Her tastes are known for being extravagant, so choose that premium wine or chocolate, and make reservations at that elegant, upscale restaurant.

She is image conscious, so any time spent on your own appearance is a plus. She wants to be proud to walk around with you. And it's likely that she spent time in front of the mirror before you met and so expects the same. If you go beyond the prevailing casual look, this wins more points. Having your own unique style, like with a signature hat, goes far.

The Lioness especially loves visits to the spa and salon or any gifts that pay homage to her mane (like vintage or well-made hair clips). A flower for her hair, in lieu of a corsage, is not too over-the-top. Take notice of her vanity table, for ideas for future presents.


Leo woman is pure fun. See if a game of Twister or a scavenger hunt doesn't bring out that playful kid. A special event to stir the imagination, like Cirque du Soleil or walking a street fair with music, artists, pinwheels. Be sure to memorialize time together with a picture, portrait, or song that casts the memory and her in a magical light. Create an atmosphere of adventure in your relationship, where there's always something to look forward to!


Leo woman is not all fun and games. She's also one of the more ambitious of the Zodiac signs. Pay attention to her dreams for herself, and find ways to bolster her confidence toward achieving them. Every Lioness wants to put her personal stamp on her work. Help her refine her approach and offer practical strategies for making it happen.

Find ways to remind Leo woman of that powerful spark that drives her. Many Leo women have no problem asserting themselves and being the one that dictates what goes on. But if something is eclipsing her sunny nature, you win her love by reminding her of that light within.
