**Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!
“There’s only one thing more precious than our time and that’s who we spend it on.”
~ Leo Christopher
The love of a Leo is one that can last a lifetime.
Leo season is from July 23rd through August 22nd, although those born a few days before and after may find that they align closely with this sign because there is a cusp as the sun changes Astrological signs.
Pulsing and burning with rich desire, Leo—more than any other sign—tend to burn just a little bit hotter, because Leo rules the heart, passion and pure love.
This lion of a lover enjoys being center stage and easily commands attention within the blink of an eye. Their natural charisma and charm radiate through their innate animal magnetism, drawing lovers in and mesmerizing them into adoration.
A Leo lover is naturally sexy, creating flirtatious seduction in the simplest moments.
Leo is adept at the game of flirtation and sometimes uses it consciously to have their way with their partner.
In fact, once this sign has won over their lover’s heart, there likely isn’t anything their partner wouldn’t do for them.
This sign has mastered the balancing act of needs versus wants. She can look vulnerable and tender, yet all along be waiting until her lover comes just close enough so that she may pounce upon him.
Leo’s aren’t manipulators, but only skilled in using their natural traits in terms of the heart—when a Leo plays, they always play for keeps.
The love of a Leo burns irresistibility, creating storms of discontent within the memories of what-if. While we may part ways from this lover, we will never forget what we felt while we were in their arms.
Their determination and unrivaled passion is an elixir for long nights by the fire and mornings met with subtle touches and the taste of dreams come true.
Leo’s don’t play by anyone else’s rules.
Whether it’s a summer fling or the forever kind of love, they are determined to always get what they want. Sometimes this can be an uphill battle for these precious fiery souls, but giving up on the one they love is just not part of their story.
Leos don’t intend to be stubborn or create drama spun from their own heartbreak, but once they have set their eyes on a particular lover they will do anything they can to manifest their deepest desires.
Leos are a fire sign, and this means that they continually burn with unparalleled heat and intensity. They are lead by their heart and will likely follow their intuition. Yet there is no rationalizing with a Leo because, more so than any other sign, they are either all in or all out.
The sign of Leo is represented by the lion; the king (or queen) of the jungle and there is no mistake that they wish to be treated accordingly. This isn’t done by swelling their ego, but rather they have an uncanny ability of stating their needs so clearly that they usually end up getting exactly what they want.
And if they don’t—then mercy on the soul who isn’t living up to the high standards Leo has set.
Unlike other signs who shy away from conflict, Leos have no trouble storming headlong into battle if they believe they were wronged by their lover—it’s this aspect that gives them the roar they’re famous for. Leos can at times let their emotions burn hot, get out of hand and become fixated on getting their point across rather than fully listening to the argument at hand.
Luckily for this sign even when they are in the throes of a heated discussion, they are somehow still charming and eventually their partner will see their point of view, and then it’s time to make up—one of Leo’s favorite pastimes.
Leo’s are natural lovers. They tend to be at home in their bodies and enjoy every aspect of the act of sex, sinking into and devouring the erotic humanness of their lovers. Usually they take charge in the bedroom, letting their lover know exactly how they want to be touched and kissed.
They love like they live, and that means that wherever they go fire will soon follow.
Whether it’s a midmorning quickie or a session of love making that lasts till morning’s first light, they will continually smolder with desire and sexuality because for a Leo sex is innately connected to the act of love. Whether they have said “I love you,” or not—their lover knows it’s true.
They seduce with flames of burning fingertips and throbbing hearts.
The only guarantee with a Leo is that once won’t ever be enough. This sign is notorious for the on-again-off-again type of interludes within the world of romantic relationships. Even if our Leo has driven us crazy, and we have sworn them off, like our favorite bottle of whiskey, eventually we will find ourselves saying that we’d like just one more taste.
One more touch, one more kiss of passion that leaves sparks in its wake.
Leo’s love is more synonymous with thunder clouds on a hot summer’s eve, because the only guarantee that we have when loving a Leo is that it will be hot.
We may at times feel flustered in their presence, and we may try to walk away, unable to venture very far.
Because once a Leo truly loves, they love forever.
