Leo is the fifth astrological sign of the Zodiac and is represented by the symbol of a Lion. People who are born from about July 22nd through August 22nd are under the Leo zodiac sign.

Their sign is ruled by the sun and is at a detriment with Saturn, which can cause them to have very strong traits.
Leos are typically able to have the best relationships with people of the other fire signs, which are Aries and Sagittarius. Other fixed quality signs are also often compatible though to a lesser extent and these include Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio. While it is possible for any sign to have a good relationship with a Leo, it is best if they first know and understand the Leo horoscope traits so they know what they are getting into ahead of time. Being able to focus on areas where they complement each other and learning how to react to any negative Leo characteristics is key to ensuring a successful relationship.

Having a person born under the Leo horoscope working for you can be a great thing, but don’t expect to micromanage them as they often feel they know the best way to complete any task and will not accept criticism well. This is especially true if they believe they are smarter than you, which they often do. If you can give them a project to complete and allow them the flexibility to complete it in the manor which they feel is best it will often turn out well. They are quite able to think outside of the box when needed to come up with new and improved ways to accomplish a task.
Working for a Leo can be a struggle for many people due to their propensity for arrogance and pompous attitude. If they assign you a task and it is completed incorrectly, they may be quick to criticize since they often feel they could have completed the task better themselves.

The Leo characteristics will help them drive their team forward, though, so if they can avoid burning bridges with their employees, it can be a very productive team to be a part of.
Whether you are contemplating a relationship with a Leo, working with or for a Leo or you are a Leo yourself, it is very important to recognize the Leo horoscope traits and try to work with them rather than against them. Leos have a lot to offer in virtually every part of life and they can be amazing people to work or be with if you’re willing to put in the effort necessary.
