The Leo zodiac sign
People born between July 23rd and August 22nd are Leos.
Leo’s planetary ruler is the Sun, which very tellingly is the planet at the center of the universe. This already tells you a lot about the typical Leo personality.
Leos tend to view themselves as being at the very center of the universe – think major main character energy. Leos have a great sense of their own importance and self-worth, in a way that can either seem inspiring and magnetic, or annoying, depending on your own point of view.
Leos, whether male or female, are loud people. This is often true literally, but it can also manifest in other ways such as a bold fashion sense, a daring artistic vision or an uncompromising dedication to success in their chosen career field.
Of course, there is a lot more going on in every horoscope than simply the placement of the Sun. What this means is that you could round up ten Leo women, and they would all be very different from each other, shaped as they are by the rest of their horoscopes, as well as countless other factors including their age, cultural background, social classs and so on.
Having said that, there are still some very striking Leo traits that always seem to come through. Let us go over what they are, and how they tend to manifest in the female Leo personality.
Leo woman personality traits
Are you a Leo woman, or is there an important Leo woman in your life? If so, she probably possesses most or all of these personality traits.
Leo women are confident. They don’t hide their light, but actively turn it up as much as they can in both their personal and professional lives.
A Leo woman’s confidence may manifest in all of the obvious ways, but it can also be more subtle, taking the form of unwavering dedication to her goals and values or a striking aesthetic sense. As a besides, Leo women are usually very comfortable in their own skin.

Unsurprisingly, Leo women have a tendency to hot tempers. You might consider this the negative side to the passionate quality that each Leo woman abundantly possesses.
Leo women know what they want, and are not above throwing a tantrum when things don’g paly out as planned. A Leo woman is never satisfied with anything she perceives to be less than what she deserves.
Leo women have big, warm hearts that envolop everyone they know, and then some.
It is not unusual for Leo women to work in charities or to otherwise fight for a better, more just and abundant world for all. And despite how much they love talking about themselves and their own personal goals, Leo women are also known to be great, compassionate listeners.

Things every Leo woman likes
If you want to woo a Leo woman, you should pay close attention to the characteristics and idiosynchraties of her personality. Knowing what a Leo woman values and craves is of great importance when you want to win her over.
If the Leo woman you have set your sights on is a typical Leo, here are a few ideas to get you started.
All women – and men too, of course – like attention and compliments. However, attention is absolutely crucial to the female Leo.
You should make a point of noticing and complimenting her; her achievements, her intelligence, her looks and her character. Never miss an opportunity to highlight some little thing you appreciate about her. Make her feel seen, appreciated and admired.
All Leos, and Leo women perhaps in particular, love to be treated like royalty. They simply love big and obvious displays of affection and devotion – displays that may make more modest star signs squirm with uncomfortable self-awareness. There are no two ways about it; your female Leo lover will be impressed by grand gestures.
If you have the financial means, treat your Leo love interest to extravagant dinners and gifts, nights at the theatre, and travels to exotic locations. And if you are more constrained by your budget, make up for it by being inventive. Plan an elaborate picnic, prepare a relaxing and romantic bath full of rose petals and essential oils, and so forth and so on.
Leo women are very loyal and they expect or rather demand loyalty in return.
A female Leo is likely to be very unhappy in her relationship if she senses that she doesn’t have your full attention. Your female Leo wants to know that she is your queen, your number one. She is not one of those women who will be more attracted to you if she thinks that you are undecided or uncommitted. She wants to know that you are all in.
Female Leo compatibility
Everyone – including the Leo woman – has an entire horosope full of planets, which is to say that we are all so much more than just our Sun signs.
This makes it impossible to give any truly reliable acr0ss-the-board advice as to the specific star signs a Leo woman (or anyone else for that matter) should consider as romantic partners.
Having said that, there are some general astrological compatibility patterns that seem to apply to almost everyone. Here they are.
A Leo woman’s most obvious romantic match is a fellow fire sign, so either a fellow Leo, an Aries or a Sagittarius. The reason for this is that a fire sign is naturally going to be a good energetic match. There are some important traits that all fire signs have in common; they tend to be passionate, bold, confident, loud, optimistic and enthusiastic. Having a romantic partner who is similar to ourselves on a core level can ensure a shared understanding and is a good predictor of shared values.
Alternatively, an air sign might make an ideal match for a Leo woman. The air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, and like fire signs, they tend to be confident and energetic. They also bring some new and interesting qualities into the mix, such as being very open-mided, curious and knowledge-hungry.
Of course, a female Leo may also choose to date an earth sign or a water sign. However, the female Leo may feel suffocated by the typical earth sign’s more conservative and serious outlook on life, or she may be exhasperated when faced with the emotional and sometimes indecisive energy of a water sign.
