Leo Astrology Leo sun sign people are marked by certain good qualities making them creative, generous, warmhearted, enthusiastic, loving, broad-minded, and faithful. Leo astrology says that they are the true Kings of the zodiac. They love flattery and attention and are delighted with compliments. But, when their integrity is challenged, people with Leo sun sign can fly into towering rages.

Leons have powerful intelligence and are of a broad philosophical, sometimes religious bent of mind. They may even become very obstinate in upholding traditional beliefs and will hang doggedly, but with complete sincerity, to practices and doctrines which liberal thinkers regard as absurdly out-of-date. But nothing is modest about Leos and they are very proud and self confident.

Leo Astrology SymbolsLeo sun sign people have magnanimous personality and considered as the human being's monarch as lion is the King of the beasts. If Leo zodiac sun sign person has decided to do something then it is very hard and even impossible to stop him or her. Leo astrology further depicts that Leos know what they want from life and put all their energies to get that without wasting a bit of it on other activities. Leos are very ambitious, self-confident, self-controlled, positive and with very strong will. They have many dependents as they can touch the cords of the heart with ease and can reach to the core of the problem.

On the other side if Leo is bad that nobody can be worse than him or her. Arrogance, pride, hot temperament are the characters of such people. Sometime over beating, snobbish, greed for flattery type of nature of the Leo also works against them. Impatience, boastful nature, arrogant and violent behavior are the negative traits of the Leo sun sign.
