may surprise you.
Whether you're hoping to win the heart of the handsome new Leo down the street or simply develop a better working
relationship with your Leo boss, knowing what turns this fiery, energetic sign on and off from the beginning will help
things along in a major way.
Attention - When trying to impress a Leo native, you can't go wrong when you pay them a wealth of
compliments. Leos love attention and they are easy marks when it comes to flattery. Pick out your favorite feature of
theirs, compliment away, and listen to them purr.
Performing Arts - Take an interest in the arts, especially performing arts like theater and dance. If
you are an artist yourself, be sure to let your Leo know. These folks love creative types who enjoy expressing
Being in Charge - Leo likes to be seen as an authority figure to be looked up to at all times. Try
breaking the ice with your special lion by coming to them for advice on a subject they take pride in knowing a lot about.
Afterward, thank them heartily and sincerely for being so helpful.
Philanthropy - Open up conversation with your Leo by talking about your favorite charities and the ways
in which you give back to your fellow man on a daily basis. Leos are philanthropists who delight in helping people and
enjoy being around other generous types as well.
The Spotlight - Step back and allow your Leo to be the center of attention. These are people who love
the spotlight and appreciate partners who allow them to bask in it whenever possible.
Criticism - Don't ever criticize your Leo. Leo natives are confident people who know how to make a
splash, but their large egos are nevertheless easily bruised. If you must speak harsh truths, sugar-coat what you want to
say first, and then sugar-coat it some more. There's no such thing as "too tactful" when it comes to
dealing with a Leos pride.
Negativity - Leos hate negative people. Like the Sun that rules them, these people are positive,
positive, positive! Even when you're feeling down, your Leo would prefer you look on the bright side and make every
effort to keep smiling.
Being Dominated - Don't be bossy, domineering, or pushy. Leo likes to be in charge whenever possible
and doesn't share the reins attached to a given situation willingly. They don't want to fight you for the
Bland Attire -Don't be slovenly or boring in your style of dress. Leos are typically good-looking,
well-dressed people who appreciate other people who are the same. Going the extra mile to look your best will take you
far with your Leo.
Injustice - Don't lie or be the sort who is always trying to put one over on people. Fairness and
justice are very important concepts to Leo. They have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to anyone who acts out of
selfishness or greed.
