Leo Woman Personality, Traits & Characteristics
One of the fire signs, Leo women have a burning passion for life that is palpable. They have big ideas and big dreams – they are going to be a star in some way or another. They know that being a star starts with looking at acting like a star. For this reason, they always dress to the nines, and walk into a room with the perfect smile and a ton of confidence. They can sometimes prioritize style over substance, but it seems to be working.
Leo women are emotionally strong, and there is very little that can shake their belief in themselves, and that they deserve the best in life. As a result, they can sometimes come off as a little self-intitled. But at the same time, they are warm and generous, and that is why people always want to be in her orbit. Leo women certainly have a lot of self-love, but love is not limited, they have plenty left for the people that are important to them.

Likes & Dislikes
Leo women aren’t happy unless they are busy. If anyone is looking in at their life – which they probably are via Instagram stories – they want them to know that it is full and exciting.
While she is usually too involved with her own things to worry about what other people are up to, she can become frustrated when she feels like she is missing out on something that is her domain. She likes to look her best, and to stand out, and would be mortified to show up somewhere in the same outfit as someone else.

Home Life & Family
Leo women are likely to have the kind of flat you imagine in the movies, with a walk-in wardrobe and an impressive collection of shoes, and artistic portraits or herself on the wall. It can tend to be on the messy side, as who has time to clean up when there are so many other exciting things to do. She would rather pay a cleaner than sacrifice her time.
Career & Money
Leo women love to be in public-facing roles, and roles where they have the power to act autonomously, as they don’t really like following the orders of others. There is probably nothing that she would like better than to be the director of a charity, as she has a generous heart, and knows just how well this would reflect on her. She also thrives in roles such as fundraising and sales, as she has the ability to talk others around to her way of thinking.
Leo women tend to have expensive tastes, and they believe in investing in themselves, rather than saving for a rainy day. Don’t expect her to cancel a hair appointment to save a few dollars.
Leo Women in Love & Relationships
Leo women know how to attract attention the right way, and are excellent at flirting, so they are never short of admirers to choose from. She is also upfront and direct when it comes to dating, and doesn’t let herself be bruised by rejection. She greets this more with disbelief than self-doubt.
Leo women tend to like to keep things casual at first to test whether someone will fit into the world that she has designed for herself, but once they have passed the test, she is incredibly generous and loving. But don’t expect her to give up her flirty ways, it is just part of who she is, and she can be trusted. However, she can also have a jealous streak if her partner engages in the same type of behavior.
Sexuality & in Bed
Leo women are extremely confident in bed and they aren’t afraid to share every part of themselves with their partners. While she enjoys a little bit of dirty talk, her partner better watch what they say and make sure it is always positive and praising.
Attracting a Leo Man
Leo women love to be admired, and they want to know that they have knocked someone off their feet. But at the same time, she wants someone who does the same thing in her. She is looking for charisma, success, and charm to match her own.
Leo women are most compatible with Aries and Aquarius. Aries is confident and successful, which is attractive to Leo. They also love impressive women, so will give Leo the admiration that she craves. Aquarius may have even more innate confidence than Leo, which can make them a bit of a hard nut for Leo to crack, but she enjoys the challenge, as long as she wins.
