Straightforward – No mind games
Leo individuals are very honest and straightforward. They speak the truth and share their opinions fearlessly. They will not sugarcoat their words to please people or mince words to avoid hurting others. Because they speak their mind freely, they often pass off as rude and blunt.

With great determination, Leos will never back down from challenges but stubbornly push forward to victory.

Leos love to bond. They will strike up interesting conversations with strangers and light up a dull room. They are the life of the party and will make any person feeling awkward to relax and be at ease. With Leos, there will never be a dull moment as they entertain you with their sparkling personalities. They command other’s attention and will not share their glory with others. They have charismatic characters and are incredibly influential.
