If there’s one thing that you, Leo do best, it’s the skill of catching a crowd with your warmth and enigmatic energy. While you’re not as materialistic and concerned with appearance as some other signs in the Zodiac, you definitely make an effort to project yourself in the way you want to be perceived.
Validation and being liked is important to you, and although you know appearances aren’t everything, you know that when you go out with friends, people will take pictures–even if you’re not a celebrity, you still act like one–and you enjoy looking good in the pictures you take. (I mean, who doesn’t? But you, specifically, will not post things where you look bad.)
But what happens when, after this night out, you awake in your bed with no memory of how you got there. You had a great night–almost too great, ‘cause your head is killing you. You stumble to the bathroom, turn on the light (ah, that’s bright), look in the mirror, and–well, you’d scream if you hadn’t lost your voice from talking all night.
Not looking good, friend. Except this is when your reflection speaks back to you. (No, this isn’t a horror movie. Your appearance is bad, but not that bad.) So what does your reflection say?
Well, before they speak, they step out of the mirror and stand beside you, because as it turns out, you’re actually not alone–and this person didn’t step out of the mirror. They came running at the sound of your screams.
And instead of balking, they smile and take your hand. “You look great.” With a wink, they smile. “You can always be yourself with me.”
Leo–you’ve just met yourself, another Leo, and whoa, this is scary… and yet, kind of cool.
As a fire sign, Leo, your energy is intense, but because you’re ruled by the sun, you’re also incredibly warm, carrying a natural radiance wherever you go. You’re optimistic, and because you’re an extrovert–gaining your energy from the people around you–you’re always aiming to make people feel good. It makes you happy to see people happy.
For that reason, you’re going to try to see the best in others, and you’ll always try to create a space for your friends where they can be themselves. Judgment is pointless when you have the potential to share your joy with others.
And although you’re perceived as your symbol, the lion, as brave and confident, beneath your fortified exterior is a sensitive person who is often hardest on themselves than others. For that reason, when you meet another Leo, someone who tells you what you always tell your friends: it’s okay to be yourself, you’re not just taken aback; you’re happy, excited, and ready to see where this can go.
Leo and Leo in Friendship
As Leos, you’re determined and energetic, eager for the adventure waiting for you around the corner. Because you’re a fixed sign, one you set your mind on something–be it a restaurant, a crush, an opinion, a dream job–you won’t stop until you get it. Roadblocks don’t exist in your Universe. They’re just opportunities for detours.
No challenge is too big for you and not only do you not give up, you definitely won’t let anything break your confidence. This is an energy you project to all your friends and one of the reasons you’re so enigmatic.
You’re encouraging, a cheerleader to people who don’t believe in themselves. For this reason, when you two cross paths, well, my Leo and Leo pair, in each other’s company, you’ll build each other up so high, you’ll be taking your dreams to the White House, the Olympics, the top of the company. It feels like nothing is off-limits when you two get together.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
You both can get pretty set in your ways, and this includes how you prefer to spend your time.
Fortunately, because you’re both extroverted and eager to get out into the world when the two of you hang out, you’ll both be okay with stepping outside your normal comfort zone, usually because you can tell that your Leo friend shares your interests.
You don’t mind crowded bars or spontaneous road trips to the beach, and although you know what you’re comfortable in, you have an adventurous, uplifting spirit that makes it so you’re not afraid to try new things.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
You both enjoy being the center of the attention and as a result, it can sometimes feel like you’re competing for attention when you’re in a large group.
You two tend to do better one on one, especially in the beginning stages of your friendship. But once you get comfortable with each other, however, your mutual stubbornness can cause disagreements.
Because you both are so passionate about your perspectives, these fights can get head quite quickly.
Fortunately, you both bounce back quickly, and once you get things off your chest and you each feel validated in your opinion, you’ll have no problem moving forward and letting things go, even if you don’t realize that your friendship can occasionally become an echo chamber.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
A common statement of yours? NEXT. Not only for the bad dates, but even for the good.
Dating is enthralling and interesting. You both love meeting new people, enjoy feeling someone’s attention on you, and are eager to find love. And because you two share these values, you’ll have no problem expressing your feelings and thoughts about your dates to one another.
Some of your friends don’t understand how fast you fall for new partners, or how quick you move, but your Leo friend definitely will, because they’re guilty of the exact same thing.
The only downside here is that you’ll both encourage this behavior in each other, even when moving in with someone after a month of meeting them is probably not the best idea.
Leo and Leo in Love
Everything you two have just experienced in your friendship is only going to be enhanced when it comes to love. The good and the bad.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t make this work. In actuality, the odds of you two finding success in a healthy relationship are just as likely as the experience you shared in your friendship. And it’s likely you two were friends before this. Even if you weren’t, you’ll find peace in your interactions. You might actually feel understood for the first time in your life.
And what exactly does that mean? This person may be the first one you’ve come across in your life who you won’t just let your full guard down with, but who you’ll actually allow to see behind the emerald curtain, to the real truth that lives inside you.
And your partner will do the same. And what will unfold will be a purely authentic relationship, one not dominated by putting on a show but by being your genuine self.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
Hours will pass, the sun will go down, you’ll start to lose your voice, and you still won’t want this date to end. It will be an engaging interchange, one neither of you will get sick of.
You’re a unique fixed sign, Leo, because while you are stubborn and like things a certain way, the repetition you choose in your life is usually spontaneity, going out instead of staying in.
Of all the fixed signs, you’re the most extroverted, and when you two get together, you’ll take the detour, have the midnight picnic on the beach, and talk until the sun comes up.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
Neither of you have ever considered yourself high maintenance in a relationship until you met another you.
It’s not that your partner is needy, it’s just that they have high expectations with love. You both want to express your love in every way possible, and fortunately, this works out, since in relationships, both of you tend to give the love back that you receive.
The issue will arise when you two need to talk about things. Although you’re both good communicators, you both tend to discuss things purely from your own point of view.
That echo chamber that will uplift your friendship will have a risk of dragging down your relationship because at the end of the day, even though you share the same sign, you’re not dating yourself, and you need to remember this is a partnership.
And listening to what your significant other needs is just as important as you expressing your own thoughts and feelings. If you can learn this routine: speak, take a break, listen, repeat–you two will be just fine.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
Get the fire hydrant ready. When two fire signs collide in the bedroom, there’s always going to be fireworks. But when two Leos, ruled by the sun, interlock as one, well this is more like a nuclear bomb exploding.
The only problem you two will face in your relationship–and in your intimacy–is the battle for attention. You’re both used to being on the receiving end of things, and when you date another Leo, you’ll be forced to learn really quickly that there are two people involved.
Fortunately, you’re a giver, and you won’t mind tending to your partner’s desires, and you’ll find that it won’t just excite you, but make you feel even closer to them.
As long as you two remember that you’re not befriending or dating your reflection and that there is another person in your friendship or relationship, then you’ll remember to not just listen, but become attentive to someone else’s needs.
It will be a challenge, but one you’ll share together and one you both will find relief in experiencing, as taking down your ego a notch can’t hurt. And when you do, you’ll find you’ll finally take your mask off, and you’ll be stripped down to the most authentic version of yourself.
- 1- Get AWAY from me
- 2- Who are you again?
- 3- I tolerate you
- 4- You’re pretty cool
- 5- Let’s gooooo!
What if I Love This Person?
You’re in luck, Leo. This person you love is also someone you genuinely like. Congratulations on sharing a bond that many people will pretend they have but won’t actually possess. If you would be friends with your partner if you weren’t dating them, then, in my opinion, you’ve hit the jackpot. And that’s definitely the case here.
