Leo Traits that make them Courageous and Benevolent Warriors
Leo is the fifth astrological sign of the zodiac and celestially represented by the lion. Just like its cosmological body, Leos are courageous, powerful, and persuasive
towards anything they desire. Once Leos set their eye on something, they are determined to achieve it by all means!
On the other hand, Leo’s signs are remarkably passionate, empathetic, and understanding. With their charismatic and influential personality, they can turn heads instantly.
According to Greek mythology, the Leo sign has a link to the ferocious monster, Nemean Lion. Due to his terror and devastations, King Eurystheus send his dearest kin, Heracles, to kill that monster. With the grace of Goddess Athena, he triumphed
over the beast and wore the lion’s impenetrable fur as armor.
In this myth, the Nemean Lion is a villain due to the terror caused by it. However, the qualities of the Nemean Lion, like power, agility, and determination, can make the present Leos the heroes of their own stories.
‘King of the Jungle’ lives on its terms, but like the other zodiacs, they have some intriguing qualities that are worth investigating! Let’s dig into more illuminating facts about the Leo signs:
If you ever come across a person who is straightforward and talk the talk, there are 99% chances he/she is a Leo! They do not like to speak in the riddles and would like
to stay away from a diplomatic person. They feel a sense of security around someone who can accept their flaws and respect them deeply. In a nutshell, they wear their heart on their sleeves!
Lions are the natural leaders. Fire being their ruling element, they are born courageous, intelligent, and fearless to fight against injustices. Their leadership works beautifully on inspirational or philosophical grounds, where they keep everyone connected to a message or presence through their motivating speech. They push the individuals to work as a team and attend to the glory of success.
Talking about leadership, one quote of Barack Obama stuck in my head. “My job is not to represent Washington to you, but to represent you Washington.“
These lions are always in the limelight. They carry their confidence, energy, and alluring charms anywhere to go. They know their worth and exactly knows where to hit the target. While enjoying life’s pleasure and wealth, they love to share the same luxury and compassion with their loved ones. They love to be pampered and being the centre of attention.
Leos are mindful listeners. While listening to you, they do not get easily distracted and intake all the insights placed for them on the table. Being a good listener opens doors to new information, ideas, and knowledge of current affairs. These listening skills also help them be a good storyteller, which they certainly admire and share their experience with pride.
Pride is Misinterpret with Ego
Leos are born with pride and courage. On the other hand, Leos are sensitive as they always put their dear ones first. They invest their time, energy, and passion to, build the castle of their dreams. If someone challenges their achievements or way of work, they feel very offended. They take it on their self-esteem and may get bluntly defensive. Often, their pride is quickly mistaken with ego.
“Where there a will, there is a way…”
This inspiring cliche is the driving gear of every Leo individual. Leos never cling to their fears. They are highly optimistic and takes every calculative measure to move forward in their life. They believe in their gut feelings and can jump into the rings of fire; if it is beneficial to them.
Incapable to Accept Criticism
All zodiacs have weaknesses, and Leo is no exception. Leos are always self- focused. They love to live in their rainbows and portrait everything to be perfect. Thus, any criticism or harsh comment is unacceptable by the Leos. While defending their pride and honour in an argument, sometimes they hurt the sentiments and feelings of their loved ones.
Honest, But Sometimes Brutal
Honesty is something Leos admire the most. They like to be frank and bold while communicating with another person and expect the same in return. But sometimes,
their honesty does not favour another person and may hurt their sentiments ruthlessly. Also, Leo’s honesty makes them a pretty bad liar. It will show up on their faces and definitely get caught.
Every zodiac sign has their strength and flaws. All you need is the boldness to face it with pride, like a Lion. They treat others with dignity and respect and expect the same in return. In the end, I would like to finish off with a very famous proverb, “Once a King, Always a King.”
