"Generous, kind, and openhearted, you find it hard to believe ill of others. If injured, you strike back quickly, but you also forgive easily and never hold a grudge. Marvelously affectionate and cheerful, you have genuine joie de vivre. The sun is your ruler and you always bring sunshine into the lives of others. Obviously, this is one of your most endearing traits. In many ways you are like the Sun itself - life-enhancing, radiating energy and magnetism, burning with steady fixity. Astrologers call Leos eternal children, for you take pleasures from the moment and are uninhibited in giving affection.
No one could ask for a better friend. If approached in the right way, you will do almost anything, but you expect praise and appreciation and admiration in return. Pride is your Achilles' heel. Your ego demands not respect but adoration, not compliments but flattery, and when you receive lavish praise you never stop to wonder if it is insincere. Despite your self-centeredness, you need others to give to if only to get back their appreciation. However, because you're too proud to ask for appreciation, you often suffer silently from a wounded ego. Your hidden secret is you need to be needed.
