Diana loves to write about the zodiac and love compatibility.

Have you ever met someone who is extremely outgoing, with a big smile on their face, and theatrical, maybe somewhat dramatic? Well, there's a chance this person was born between July 23 - August 22. Understanding Leo can help you get along with those born under this zodiac sign! Here's the list of 10 things you need to know about Leo!

Leo Zodiac Sign: 10 Things You Need to Know
Leo Zodiac Sign: 10 Things You Need to Know

1. Everything about me is theatrical

Leos can't help but love basking in the spotlight while others are silently watching them. No matter what they do, they do it with a flair for the dramatic. Their lives are like those TV shows we used to watch every evening on TV: everything is so big, grand and important in their lives! People born under this sign never shy away from the limelight and are really, really dramatic! They are so creative and have so much idealism. So, every not-that-impressive, usual story about their day at work or some meeting may easily be turned into a half an hour (if not longer) detailed drama! It's no surprise, as these folks remember everything: from the way you look at them to the very last detail in your costume. Then, they will exaggerate a few things here and there, and whoa, we have the perfect plot for a drama!

However, not every zodiac sign admires this trait. Actually, it may seem quite daunting for some people. They may simply don't know how to handle such Leo personality.

2. Sing Hallelujah Chorus to me, please!

When a Leo enters, let's say, a room, they hope everyone will praise, admire, greet and compliment them in every possible way. In other words, they need to be needed. Zodiac sign of Leo is ruled by the Sun, the center of the Universe. So, in this sense, those born under this sign may also think of themselves as of the "center of the Universe". It's no wonder that these guys are real attention-seekers! The Sun is considered the most important of all the planets, so don't be surprised when you notice a Leo person considers themselves to be the most important in the room.

Their ego does get out of control at times. However, it doesn't mean that every Leo is like this, but those who are not yet very developed may behave themselves in that way. It's all the Sun, let's blame it on the planet.

Leos are born entertainers, witty, fluent talkers who become the soul of almost any company. However, when meeting negative Leos, you immediately realize those ones are the most unpleasant people to be around. An extreme amount of arrogance, a high amount of pride, and even jealousy displayed from them leaves you no choice but run as fast from them as you can. Leos must find the balance within themselves.

3. Born to do things in a r-r-really big way

Because of their such flamboyant, even expensive nature, these beasts can't stand ordinary, dull, boring things. They despise even the smallest hint on humdrum. If the reality of life is boring for them and doesn't provide them with needed excitement, experiences and adventures, they try to create it on their own. A Leo is supposed to live a truly great life, in a really big way! They won't accept something mediocre, they need to live to the fullest!

4. The most lavish spenders the world has ever seen

As to their spendings, Leos also won't accept second best. Kings and Queens, they don't believe there's something too good for them. Leos need only the best luxurious things, even if it costs a fortune. Born under this royal sign, these people are usually splendid hosts. They want to enjoy the good life themselves and treat their guests respectively.

They truly care about what others think of them, how others see them, so do their best to create a public image that would satisfy them. Even when a Leo woman spent almost all her savings, somehow she finds the means to buy that beautiful new dress she desperately needs! But don't think they are very selfish and ready to spent a fortune on themselves. These guys are generous, they are great at making gifts to those who they really care about.

5. I'm the one in command! Why not? Others don't mind that

Leos are well known for their ability to influence great numbers. This fire sign is the most masculine out of all the zodiac signs. Moreover, it's a fixed sign. That means they are the ones who are the most dominant, extraverted, strong-willed and grounded. Natural-born leaders, they are usually the ones in command. That's the position where they perform amazingly.

With an incredibly helpful instinct to get along with people who can be helpful and great understanding of how important socializing is, they are the best in group enterprises.

However, they don't climb toward a high position but simply assume they were born to rule. They are Kings and Queens, so that's kind of obvious for them and should be obvious for those around them as well, right? Doesn't it seem somewhat annoying for you? Oh yes, it may be.

The downside is that Leos may be quite stubborn and very difficult to sway. But despite the fact that they are order-givers, they are workaholics and don't ask of others more than what they can do themselves. These risky guys aren't afraid of doing something new, scary for them. They can't do otherwise simply because they don't want to be losers in their own eyes. It's as if they want to prove to themselves that they can do everything. Yes, it's hard to find a more ambitious zodiac sign than Leo, they are true limelight-seekers. However, with their cheerful and enthusiastic personality, those around them don't mind taking orders from them.

The same story is with relationships. Leos may be quite bossy, sometimes not even realizing that. They love to command and tell people how to run their lives.

6. I refuse to follow these petty rules!

Being order-givers themselves, Leos refuse to follow petty rules. They become bored by a day-to-day routine almost in the blink of an eye! If hampered by rules and following routines constantly, these personalities become desperately unhappy. However, they refuse to put up with unhappiness. They simply can't allow it to last long. Again, this sign is ruled by the Sun, so it's no wonder: as the powerful rays of the Sun, they are full of energy and are willing to live potent life!

7. I walk head-on into any challenge

Leos do believe in taking action. They don't sit around pondering a problem but do something about it. Although highly sensitive, they perfectly succeed at hiding this under the mask of bravado. So, regardless of all their inner insecurities, these guys decide to walk head-on into any challenge. They always try to push themselves and prove their worth to themselves (though getting others' approval is important for them).

8. I radiate warmth like the Sun

How can you recognize a Leo in a crowd? If they are in the room where they don't know anybody, by the end of the day they know 10 000 people. If you see a person who is super out there, chances are it's a Leo person. They are known for having an amazing sense of humor. So, naturally, it helps to get on well with other signs a lot easier. People with the Sun in Leo are extremely charming, that's definitely one of their best qualities. Affectionate and cheerful, they bring some sunshine into the lives of those surrounding them. Radiating energy and magnetism, they live in a moment and can't help but show their affection to others.

These people will do anything for their friends, but they expect gratitude (if not even admiration and flattery) in return. They will never ask you for appreciation. However, if not receiving enough of it, they will suffer silently.

So, a Leo person definitely stands out in a crowd. They draw people to them due to their energy and enthusiasm, and everything is great. however, there's a problem. The thing is that some people consider they have a king-sized ego and some may think they are performing and pretending when they are sincere.

9. Leos know everything (well, at least they think they do)

Leos are really confident: they know who they want to put up with, who they don't want to put up with, they perfectly know what they want and how to get there. However, their such confidence has a negative side to it. Some may see it as stubbornness. If you have a fight with them over whether or not they are right, they will find a way to be right, even if they actually aren't. They don't even care if they sound stupid when arguing with you!

10. They have massive hearts

Leo governs the heart, and that tells us a lot. They are very emotional characters. Genuinely kind and open-hearted, they tend to express their love in action. Those born under this sign are usually sincere in their affections. Moreover, Leo people have massive hearts, so they are very loyal to their partners, children, or people in general.

It can be said that the strongest and the weakest personalities come out of this sign. those who are the weakest are easily led through their feelings as the heart is most easily affected when the life is not that peaceful. However, a spiritual fire is always burning within them, which helps them rise out of the ashes again and again.

It's crucial for the health of all Leos to have at least a few minutes a day when they can rest alone. Even these Kings and Queens shouldn't be the center of attention 24/7. Lions also need to get their rest. They need love, peace, and harmony - those are the best medicines for them!
