A Leo woman, born between the dates of July 23 to August 22, is a strong, influential yet stubborn force that you certainly don’t want to mess with. As a fire sign known by the symbol of the lion, you’ll most likely see her standing up for what she believes in at a rally or confidently strutting around the new outfit she knows she rocks.
Either way, both scenarios call for personality traits packed with confidence … which is exactly what astrology says is true of the characteristics commonly found in Leo women.
Personality traits of a Leo woman
To some people born under other Sun signs, Leo women may seem slightly intimidating, but many others regard them as the best females to emulate. A Leo woman inspires all, as most people only yearn to love themselves in a way that leaves them unafraid to face life and whatever her horoscope foretells head on the way a Leo woman does.
Although the confidence a Leo woman possesses is a quality to be envious of, there are some less positive characteristics people sometimes can’t ignore. For example, Leo women can be extremely lazy and may overcompensate with our big mouths. And while it’s pretty admirable that they will fight tooth and nail for what they believe in, they’re also extremely stubborn and won’t admit to pretty much anything they’ve done wrong.
Leos can also be extremely sensitive but are always loyal to the ones they love. First, of course, you have to prove your worth, as Leo women don’t have the patience to mess around with people who will only waste their time. While a Leo woman has no problem telling you like it is, when push comes to shove, they love to curl up with a nice blanket and cuddle like the big cats they are.
Good personality traits of a Leo female
A Leo woman is confident. Need I say more? She’s pretty flawless when it comes to exuding confidence. Being a Leo means there will be no room for hesitation. She’s slightly intimidating, especially when she feels her best in that new outfit. It doesn’t matter who she’s around or where she is: when she feels good, she feels good. Part of this confidence comes from her passion. The Leo woman goes after what she wants and loves it with all her heart. She gives every relationship her all. You’re either with her one hundred percent or not at all. She strives to be successful in all she does, and most likely, she succeeds.
A Leo woman speaks her mind. A Leo is unafraid and fearless when it comes to knowing — and saying — what she thinks. She’s opinionated, which definitely can have its downfalls. However, one thing is for certain: a Leo woman would make an amazing lawyer, in part because she’s also theatrical. She is in touch with her emotions and always looks to express herself. The world is her stage and, as her ruling planet (the sun) suggests, the light shines on her.
Whether it’s on the stage or not, communication is big for a Leo female. Nothing goes unacknowledged or unaccounted for when it comes to her feelings. She’ll tell you like it is, whether it’s good or bad. She wants you to know how she feels at all times.
A Leo woman is influential. She can (and will) inspire just about anybody she’s around. She’s the leader of the pack and can convince you of anything she believes in wholeheartedly. She was born to make a difference in this world, and she will.
Above all, a Leo woman is a fighter. She doesn’t limit herself with time, she only understands completing the mission. She’ll fight to the end for those she loves, for her dreams, for other people, and for what she believes is right. The term “give up” is simply not a part of her vocabulary. No matter how long it takes, she will win the battle.
Bad personality traits of a Leo female
Leo’s highlighted qualities are her confidence and persistence, but let’s not forget it’s nearly impossible to talk her out of what she thinks. She’s incredibly stubborn, and once her mind is set, there’s just no going back. In addition, the Leo woman isn’t particularly discrete. Once she sets out to do something, she needs the world to know about it. There’s no such thing as hiding a Leo woman’s intentions and, once she’s success, she’s not always the most humble. This can also sometimes seem domineering. For those of you who are into that, then she’s an exquisite sex partner. However, outside of the bedroom, it can be a little much. A Leo woman can’t help it, she was born to dominate and take over the world.
A Leo woman may be kind of self-centered. She believes she’s right and loves herself so much, to the point of no return. She takes what’s hers, but she does it to such an extent that it can get a little irritating. A Leo woman does believe her name is on everything but cut the girl some slack, she was born to do it.
Despite her drive, a Leo woman can be lazy. Though she’s good with her mouth and words, as well as fighting for what she believes in, if she’s forced to work for something she doesn’t believe in she most likely will give you a hard time.
Leo woman traits in love and relationships
If you see a cute guy across the bar and you’re wondering if you should go up to him, you’re probably not a Leo. A Leo woman doesn’t wonder if she should follow her gut, she just goes right after him — and anything else she wants. The only way a Leo thinks is aggressively. No ifs, ands or buts about it!
One of the Leo woman’s best traits in relationships is her loyalty. No matter what, a Leo fights for those she loves. Once you gain a Leo girl’s trust, there’s no going back. The process to get inside her inner circle may be intense, but that’s only because once you prove you are worthy, she will fight to the death for you. She will be there whenever, and where ever, you need her.
A Leo woman is extremely sensitive to other people’s actions involving her. She’s also extremely sensitive to other people’s feelings. She feels too much, which is why her reactions are so extreme. She’s got the biggest heart and carries the weight of the world on her shoulders.
