Leo Woman and Leo Man: Infinite Warmth and the Courage to Be Vulnerable
Leos are known to be brave and charismatic, yet many have a strange perception of why they are this way. Learn about how vulnerability plays into Leo's strong personality and how this affects relationships between the Leo woman and Leo man.
Many view Leo's (July 23-August 22) charisma as a shallow aspect of their personality, a kind of Achilles heel that clashes with their positive traits such as generosity, bravery, and loyalty. The truth is, however, that although these Lions and Lionesses sometimes revel in attention, what attracts people to them is their vulnerability and subsequent warmth.
They are genuinely compassionate individuals who connect authentically with those around them. This warmth attracts their admirers to them as though they are sitting around a crackling fireplace, with everyone feeling relaxed and included.

Warmth, Passion, and Affection
When a Leo woman and Leo man come together, the shared fire between them not only ignites a fiery and intense passion. On top of that, it brings a sense of shared vulnerability between them, as if they are two souls that have known each other for many lifetimes. This is the source of the love that spills over into a romantic, passionate, and, yes, warm partnership filled with chemistry and red roses.
Their commitment and courage to constantly show one another the depth and breadth of their love for one another without hesitation not only makes them fall deeper into love with one another. More than that, it manifests a deep respect between them, giving them sustainable roots on which to grow a more mature, sustainable love that can last a lifetime.

Social, Fun, and Charismatic
Of course, this warmth extends outside of them, and not only will their natural charisma still be present, but the love between them will create an even more magnetic force for those around them. Individuals will want to be jealous of this wildly in-love couple with their grand gestures and long, never-ending gazing into each other's eyes. Still, they are so endearing and authentic that it is difficult for these individuals not to fall in love with them themselves.
The Leos will revel in this shared energy, enjoying days of socializing and having fun with their loved ones and strangers. One thing is certain: this Lion and Lioness will command a room the instant they walk together.
Loyal, Honest, and Generous
Once this King and Queen of the Jungle enter a relationship, they will never look elsewhere for romantic love or affection. Seeing this in one another and finding another individual just as dedicated as them will create a sense of safety they may have never had before. Finally, they can relax, knowing that this other person truly has their back.

They also appreciate each other's honest nature, building an even stronger relationship of trust between them, yet another way in which they will ensure a stable and sustainable partnership.
Neither of them will hesitate to be generous with their time, money, or any resources they can spare. They will present and exchange gifts with one another as a gesture of just how much they care.
Contradiction and Clashing Egos
While Leos' charisma is sourced from vulnerability, they bear a contradiction within themselves in that, if they are not careful, these two can build up an ego from all the attention they get. This is where they can run into serious issues as they are not used to someone gaining more attention than them.

If they somehow become truly resentful, they may even become jealous of the other; instead of affirming and giving their partner the attention their lover needs, which is something Leos craves in a relationship, they will begin pulling away in an attempt to stop giving them an ego boost or attention.
They may also need help with who will lead their relationship, as they are both used to being the leader.

Leos must remember that their initial charisma stems from their vulnerability, which opposes their ego. Even if they manage to pull off their social prowess in a mechanical manner and without genuine connection, it will feel shallow for them, for others, and their partner. If they enjoy this experience, they must realize it may not be about attention but instead about connection, and they will starve from this connection if they do not put their egos aside. More than that, they will push each other away.
Leos are known to be brave, but courage is not about bravado and ego or commanding attention. Instead, it is about being authentic and putting oneself out there. Professor and storyteller Brené Brown once said, "Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage."
