These gregarious, extravagant creatures rule all other animals, just like the King of the Jungle does. Leos shine with star quality, their charm and charisma attracting a wide audience. Being the centre of attention is essential to a Leo; he achieves this as much through behaving dramatically as he does by sulking. Leo is happiest when performing for others; creative pursuits are vital for a Leo and playing the lead role in these pursuits is equally important. Leos need to be respected and adored by others; life is empty to them without this. Leos make the most loyal and generous friends. The good things in life are of paramount importance to a Leo; eating at the finest restaurants, expensive jewellery and being in love are what makes the sun shine for them.
