Enthusiastic, Creative, Confident, Powerful, Dramatic.
You are most known for your open and friendly personality.
Leos tend to take over wherever they go because they can be larger than life with their enthusiasm.
Strength of heart, independence, and self-confidence are traits that you value and embody. Sometimes you are stubborn, but it's only because when you believe in something you do it with all your heart and soul.
You are usually led by your creative spirit. Forthright and proud, you are very idealistic and treasure the humane side of others. A born leader, you really don't like when situations don't go according to plan. In fact, when that does occur, you don't always react well. Unfortunately, you don't take criticism too well and can get deeply hurt by others. But your positive spirit prevails and you bounce back rather quickly from most adverse situations.
Philosophical and open-minded, you can sometimes be quite naive. You trust others a bit too easily and are always surprised when they don't turn out to be who or what you expected. Beauty, luxury, and passion are very important to you. Leos are very loyal.

Lions love glitz and glamour. Book a trip to Las Vegas, Monaco, or Rio and have the time of your life.
Politician, CEO, film, manager or producer. You crave leadership roles in career, as well as the limelight thanks to that position. Aiming to be Minister of Magic or a Quidditch star is not unreasonable, it's actually quite practical for you. Not all of you will attain those positions however, but your confidence and creativity combined with your enthusiasm will find you a position of respectability and renown.
This is a natural sign for Gryffindors, not least because the griffin is part lion. Gryffindors born under this sign are outgoing, friendly, affectionate, and likeable. They make friends easily and are crushed when their advances are rejected. Their romantic, chivalrous nature makes them perfect examples of all that is best in their House. However, they are also bossy, domineering, spendthrift, and overly dramatic (ever heard the phrase "drama queen?") They have sharp tempers and need to learn to direct their anger toward only needful causes. The natural creativity and flamboyance of Leo makes Gryffindors born under this sign good at most everything they attempt, provided they apply themselves to learning magic rather than using magic to hog the limelight.
Although this might seem like a strange sign for Hufflepuffs, Hufflepuff Leos do exist. Many become the prefects of their House when they reach the proper age, for they are good with other people, have a fine sense of initiative, and have the nobility of spirit to see that the right thing gets done at all times. They like to set a good example for others - the phrase "noblesse oblige" probably sums it up well (nobility imposes obligation). Generous to a fault, they will give everything they have (be it money, energy, or loyalty) to anyone who needs it.
Ravenclaw Leos are brilliant scholars, loudly adding to classroom discussions and impressing others with the breadth, if not depth, of their knowledge. Many find themselves attracted, as well, to positions on the Quidditch team, partly because this lets them use their abundant energy, partly because it allows them to hog the limelight for a few hours while everybody in their House cheers them on. Their optimism and charisma make them friends everywhere, regardless of House affiliation, and their creativity makes them highly inventive in the laboratory. On the other hand, they are prone to fat egos and intellectual arrogance, and this can be intensely annoying. Emotional maturity will eventually teach them that they don't know everything, and sometimes it's best to let other people speak up and take the credit.
Slytherin Leos can be either very good, or very bad. At their best, they exemplify all that "nobility" is made of: confidence, openness, charm, initiative, generosity of spirit, wisdom, judgment, and poise. At their worst, they become elitist, bullying bigots. How they end up depends on the company they keep, and how they are encouraged to act early in life. Either way, they never lack attention - it's hard to ignore a Slytherin born under this sign. These Slytherins usually end up in positions of responsibility and leadership, because of their charisma and natural ability. Their creativity and drive also makes them very resourceful.
