Know About Zodiac Signs: Leo (Simha), Chapter 5, Part - 10

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Physical Structure:

Physical Leos will have large, strong and active bodies, broad shouldered, big boned, taller than average, yet narrow flanked and often lean in youth. Such physiques often run to plumpness as the years pass although usually majestically so. Their heads will be large and round, usually blond and curly hairs, florid complexions, blue or grey wide, prominent and keen eyes and imperious expression. They stride masterfully and in a stately fashion, their upright carriage reflecting the sense that they have a right to be here.

According to other school of thought Leos will be of average height, tall yet some short, with high cheek bones, full lips, trim athletic legs, strong physical features, well-defined appendages (hands, feet, etc.), and large, deep eyes. Leos will also tend to have very soft skin and thick hair that shines in the Sun. It is said that they will tend to keep their  heads held high and look down their noses at others. The back of a Lion happens to be the most sensitive area and similarly it reflects in Leo natives too.

Usually persons born under this sign will have a strong wiry body, not over tall, but well proportioned, broad shoulders, round head, with light or ruddy complexions, strong, deep voice, and large eyes, and will be often under a peculiar spiritual influx. This sign will produce its share of blue eyes but especially female of this sign will have soft and gentle dark brown eyes often of round shape and slightly tilted from the corner.

Eating habits:

Natives born under Leo sign will be slow eater and will eat with showing a taste of food but they will like that food should be served to them very decently and with a perfect manner.


The Sun is the ruler of this Sign, and when one thinks of Sunshine it will be very difficult to feel unhealthy or depressed. Somehow the light of the Sun is the very antithesis of illness and apathy. Physiologically, Leo governs the upper back, forearms, wrist, spine and heart. Its natives are subject to a number of ailments like pain in the back and lungs, spinal complaints, diseases of the heart and blood, sickness in ribs and sides, convulsions, pleasantries, violent burning fevers including, in former days when they were prevalent, plague and pestilence, jaundice and some afflictions of the eyes.

Common diseases:

The diseases to which Leo people are liable arise from weakness of lungs, heart troubles, violent fevers, back and kidney troubles, which any long continued despondency will greatly increase. All these ailments and every other known to man can be entirely dominated, forever cast out, by those, by those who realize that mind is the master and body, the servant of mind.

Love Life:

Generally Leos will have an active love life and will be demonstrative in their affections. They will love to be with other optimistic and fun loving types like themselves, but wind up settling with someone more serious, intellectual and unconventional. The partner of a Leo will tend to be more political and socially conscious than he or she will be, and more liberation. When he or she will marry a Leo, mastering the freedom loving tendencies of his or her partner will definitely become a life long challenge. They will also love to  have fun; they will love drama, music, the theatre and amusements of all sorts. These will be the things which will give joy to life. For a Leo life without joy will be no life at all. First impressions would tell that Leo will be all about the kingly and novelty, but that will not so. They will be deeply sensual and passionate and enjoy posh surroundings, such as candles and scented oils and lots of affectionate physical contact such as massages and rubbing. They will like sex to be familiar, not necessarily routine, but they will like to know what’s going on. This will be so because always Leo will have to be the best and if there will be a suggestion or something offered that they have never been done before, they would rather pass on the chance then attempt it and be only satisfactory. Leo will master the moves he know, so do not be disappointed with the lack of novelty and variety, because Leo is very good at what they can do, they are the best.

Generally, Leos will not be the marrying kind. For them relationships will only be good while they will be pleasurable. When the relationship will cease to be pleasurable a true Leo will walk out. They will always want to have the freedom to leave. That is why Leos excel at love affairs rather than commitment. However, once married, Leo will be faithful even though some Leos will have a tendency to marry more than once in their lifetime. In his or her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. Outgoing spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness, Leos will be more disillusioned than the average if let down by those they trust. They will not be good judges of character and will be inclined to favouritism and have an exaggerated faith in their followers which too often ends in disappointment. They will have a strong sex drive and will be also attracted to the opposite sex that they will find it hard to be constant; they can be so intensely sexual as to become dissolute. They may have numerous love affairs for their love of pleasure and beauty will be liable to drive them from one attractive partner to another. They will be very much inclined to deceive. Their marriages may fail for the same reason, yet they will be sincere and generous to their lovers while love lasts, and will remain attached to their homes so long as it will run for their benefit. They will demand service but will be incapable of giving it.
