The Leo Woman
The Leo Woman: Love, Sex, Friendship, Style
The Leo Woman
“I am Leo, hear me roar,” would perhaps be a better paraphrase of that old song. Have you heard any roaring recently? Chances are if you know a Leo woman you would have. Or, if you are lucky and have been very, very good, perhaps you might even have been subject to some purring instead.
You can usually pick out a Leo woman from a crowd – she’s the one with the loudest laugh, the brightest smile, and the most confident strut of them all. Ruled by the Sun, the center of the universe, this feline sign adores attention and usually gets it. She is passionate, playful, and very lively. Occasionally hot-tempered, a Leo woman can and will get those claws out if you step out of line, so handle Kitty with care! When in a fiery mood, she is best soothed with compliments and spoiled with gifts.
The lioness is intelligent, witty, strong and creative, which is why there are so many Leo women in the arts and entertainment industries. Famous Leo women roaring their way to success include Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Madonna, and J. K. Rowling.

Leo Women in Love
There are no two ways about it for Leo women – it is an all-or-nothing deal. This intensity and passion, which manifests in every aspect of her life, has its greatest focus in her love life. Everything that books and movies depict love to be, you have the highest chances of finding, with a Leo woman. This means a roller coaster ride of extreme highs and profound lows. This means Big Love, the kind that rocks foundations and shatters stars. She will place her love in the center of her universe, but she will also demand that this is reciprocated, and she will not settle for anything less. Leos tend to fall in love easily, and when she falls, she falls hard, and completely. This is not to say she is easy or that she will settle for just anyone, but when the right suitor strikes her fancy, it’s easy for her to submit to the love feelings. A territorial lover, Leo women can tend towards the possessive, so beware the catty claws.
Leo and Relationships
The Leo woman, when in a relationship, is very faithful to her partner. She expects her partner to be an equally devoted, unique, independent, and strong individual. The lioness is not looking for a caregiver, but for a fellow hunter, a mate to stalk the urban jungle with. In return, she will be loyal, generous, and warm. A relationship with a Leo woman will always be fun – she hates routine and will constantly be thinking up ways to inject change and drama into your shared lives. Yes, it will feel like playing with fire at times, but the edgy, slightly-dangerous, never-know-what-will-happen-next adrenaline rush you get from being with a Leo woman is worth it. Trust me, the Leo woman is a lot of woman and you will never be bored. Leo women are most compatible with the signs Gemini, Sagittarius, and Libra.
Leos and Friendships
The main characteristics of Leos are their zest for life and warm spirit. Admirers flock around their energy and enthusiasm. A Leo woman is typically a social butterfly, her black book crammed with contacts, her diary often double booked. And no wonder, because Leos are generous creatures and tend to pamper their friends luxuriously. A Leo woman is the ultimate gal pal. She will stick by her girlfriends and forgive everything but the most serious of transgressions, which, to the Leo woman, is betrayal.
Leos and Sex
Sex is important to the Leo woman. Very important. The physicality is a bond, and also is the primary way you can show how desirable she is. Leos love sexy lingerie, and most Leo women love to take charge in the bedroom. She is adventurous and up for anything. A Leo woman is fiery and has a strong sex drive. She is highly skilled in love-making, and both demands and gives satisfaction to her partner. This sign rules the spine, back, and heart, so seduce a Leo woman by gently caressing her skin, fingertips brushing her lower back.
Leos and Fashion
Padding around with exquisite, lithe grace, you can expect the queen of the jungle to be sartorially perfect at all times. Leos love luxury; however clothes and accessories must not only be expensive, but also exclusive. A Leo woman will never look common or vulgar because she has excellent taste. Style is important, and so are the finer things in life. Leos can carry off the most dramatic and extreme of fashion trends because of their innate confidence. The self-assurance that convinces them they look good in anything also helps. She loves fabrics like silk, cashmere, perfectly tailored cuts and, occasionally if she can afford it, luscious floor length gowns dripping with diamonds. Accessories are the Leo woman’s way of standing out from the crowd. Her hair is her mane, and she is proud of it. Nothing works wonders for the Leo woman’s self-confidence than a trip to the hairdresser. Look out for an unusual pair of shoes, embellished with sequins and feathers, and a statement necklace made of shimmering stones. Chances are they will be worn, with aplomb, by a Leo woman.
The Leo Woman: Style
You can’t mistake a Leo woman. When she enters a room, all eyes turn to her, when she speaks, people lean forward to listen – when she dresses she aims to make an unforgettable impression, and she does, every time.
Leo is the sign of the sun, and the Leo woman is all warmth and fire, passion and courage. She never does anything by half measures. She knows what suits her, and she will remain loyal to the label that gives her what she wants. She wants the best, and she knows she’s worth it.
Her fashion sense can be timeless, or it can be ephemeral. She will have exquisitely made classics in her wardrobe, but she will have fun fashion as well. On her, it will look as if it came off a Paris catwalk. She loves the feel of fabrics, of lush sensuous velvet and leather, fur and silk. She probably works out at home, in private, because she is simply too proud to be seen sweaty and bedraggled with her hair all over the place.
Pampering is what she really likes – long luxurious milk baths, manicures, pedicures, facials, full body massage and mud treatments. Anything that gets her purring is good. She knows you are as good as you feel, and she likes to feel very good indeed. She won’t let any bargain basement creams or cosmetics touch her face. Being a child of the sun, she loves a tan, but she knows there are safer ways than sunbaking. Surprisingly, she may not be very open to cosmetic surgery as she ages. Her pride may balk at that.
Whether a homebody or a career woman, she wants to be the best. She will take pride in her home, or her company, and won’t stick around if there is no reason to be proud. The Leo woman has a strong ethical sense. Much as she loves fur, she will choose good fakes, because she loves animals too – and if her company doesn’t give good value, she will work to change things or move somewhere else. Honor is vital to the Leo woman – without her integrity, she feels soiled.
Her home does not have to be a palace, even though she is born under a royal sign, but it will always have that air of being somewhere special. There will be a few unique and expensive pieces, but more than opulence, there will be a feeling of comfort. The Leo woman, as cat-like as her sign, likes to be able to rest in comfort. Her bed is important – she will have the best she can get.
