Leo Woman Personality Traits & Characteristics

The Bright Side
Vivacious, witty, strong yet feminine, a Leo woman is every man’s dreams and every woman’s envy. She is the kind which has the perfect combination of being in command yet complying. Symbolized by the Lion, a Leo woman is in true sense the Queen of the Jungle. She is full of warmth, love and sunny optimism. Her intelligence and aptitude captivates the heart of every person around. Though the lioness may seem to be tough and strong from outside, she is quite the sentimental types and can get easily hurt. There is a regal aura that every Leo woman exudes. Leadership comes naturally to Leo women and they excel in the same. Most Leo women love to live life king size and are indulgent by nature. Lavish cars, expensive clothes, flashy homes and flamboyant lifestyle are what every Leo aims at. Leo women are career oriented females. They are independent in their work and do not rely much on others to complete their tasks. They are self-sustaining in their efforts and thus are accomplished workers. In friendship, a Leo woman is helpful, true and loving. She is generous by nature and has a big heart. Probably, this is why they say, with a Leo around you’ll never fall short of a helping hand!

The Dark Side
Call her pretentious, call her egoistical or call her arrogant but that is what a Leo woman is for you. Just like her warm, big heart, she even has a great ego. But larger of all is her superiority complex, or her sense of self-esteem due to which she keeps herself at an elevated platform. Leo women think of themselves as highly and often look down upon others. This does not mean they tend to call others inferior. It is just that by thinking of themselves as superior, they get an adrenaline rush which makes them feel elated and high. The feeling also imbibes in them a sense of pride. Another negative trait of a Leo woman is her ferocious temper. If criticised, disobeyed, ignored or humiliated, a Leo woman would pounce on you like a hungry lioness. In matters of love, the arrogance of a Leo woman often comes in between her relationships. Leo women are extremely possessive and jealous. They are intense lovers and often lose their interest in a relationship when the same is not reciprocated. They also tend to get a bit bossy in the relationship, which leads to a rift in the relationship as it clashes with the male ego. Money matters, Leos are spendthrift and like to indulge in luxuries. So, next time when around a Leo, just think twice before handing over your credit card!

Romance Quotient
If it is a Leo woman who has captured your heart and made it flutter, note that you aren’t the only one. The charm, exuberance and style of a Leo woman is one-of-its-kind and can get the balls rolling for any man who just sees her. Her liveliness, ingenuity, elegance, beauty, and sensuality are remarkable and lure everyone around. Expect a Leo woman to be the center of attraction everywhere she goes and if you are aiming to woo her, be ready to face a lot of competition. A Leo woman is fascinated by men, who are classy and have a style of their own. Another thing that is important to keep in mind while wooing a Leo woman is that she hates dominance of any kind. Agreed, women under this zodiac sign tend to dominate others but in case of partners, they love being with a man who does not let himself get dominated. Once in love, a Leo woman is loyal, has respect for her partner and cares for him but if it is devotion that you are looking for, she isn’t the right choice. Don’t expect a Leo woman to worship you.

While courting a Leo woman, just make sure that you take her to all the sophisticated places and treat her with all the classy and stylish stuff. Don’t get disillusioned with the fact that she is after your money. In fact, a Leo woman would reciprocate her love with expensive gifts too. It is just that when in a shabby surrounding, a Leo woman gets uncomfortable. In relationship, a Leo woman would be trustworthy and faithful. Though she might get attention and compliments from the opposite sex, just remember that all this only assures her that she is still the Queen of the Jungle. In reality, she will always be in love with you. Just pay her the compliments and indulge in the flattery and she will make your life a living paradise! However, a Leo woman demands independence and hates to be tied down. Just remember, she is a possessive and jealous lover. The slightest bit of suspicion can get the Lioness extremely angry, annoyed and fuming. So, better try the jealousy tricks with someone else or you’ll have to bear the scorched spots that come with loving a Lioness!
