About Leo

If you were born from July 23 to August 22, congrats, you’re a Leo.

Ruled by the Sun, it is no wonder that these queens and kings of the zodiac light up any room they enter. They are the ones at the party who waltz in wearing dazzling outfits. Their vivaciousness, enthusiasm and ability to command attention make them the perfect subject for an astrology-themed reality show, which, by the way, would be any Leo’s dream come true. 

Leos possess an array of positive attributes: they are generous, fearless and dedicated but one of their most commendable traits is their natural leadership ability. Drawing inspiration from the ruling planet, the celestial Lions have an innate capacity to guide and inspire those around them. Their charisma and confidence make them natural-born leaders, capable of tackling difficult situations and making tough decisions with ease. 

Endowed with the boldness of the lion and the unwavering commitment of a Stage 5 clinger, Leos rarely back down from any challenge. They have the courage to face adversity head-on and remain steadfast in their pursuit of success. On the flip side, this fire sign can also be inflexible and obstinate, adamant that their opinion is the only valid one. In Leo's world, there simply is no need for debate or diversity of thought. 

The celestial Lion has a keen sense for cultivating inspiring relationships; they are like gardening gurus, except with people instead of plants. Unwavering loyalty is another positive trait of Leos and when they choose to commit, they often do so fully, investing time, energy and resources to maintain the bond. 

This domestic bliss may only be threatened by Leo’s ardor for drama that can lead to chaos and unnecessary complexities. The celestial Lions are masters at channeling their inner telenovela divas, sobbing melodramatically whilst demanding answers to profoundly cliché questions like, “Why has fate chosen to test our love?” This often leaves their partners questioning whether they are in a romantic relationship or a Broadway production.  

Speaking of negative traits, Leos are likely to be rather self-centered. This zodiac sign naturally gravitates towards being the center of attention and while this can add to their charm, it can also make them prone to putting their needs and desires above those around them. 

Best Crystals for Leos

Each sign of the zodiac is believed to have distinct gemstones that are best aligned to who they are and where they need to go. If you are looking for perfect crystals for Leo, you have a wide choice ranging from somewhat randomly assigned birthstones to recommended gemstones the unique energy of which is likely to resonate with the Leo personality. 


Leo Birthstones – Ruby, Sardonyx and Peridot

The list of modern birthstones was published in 1912 by the National Association of Jewellers according to which the gemstone for Leos born in July is Ruby and for the ones born in August – Peridot. This differs from the traditional August birthstone featured in Tiffany & Co’s poem published already in 1870 and recommending Sardonyx instead of Peridot. These are their verses for Leos born in July and August: 

“The glowing Ruby should adorn 

Those who in warm July are born;

Then will they be exempt and free

From love’s doubts and anxiety.


Wear a Sardonyx or for thee

No conjugal felicity;

The August born without this stone,

‘Tis said, must live unloved and lone.” 


Ruby is the king of gemstones and the gemstone for kings which makes it the perfect choice for Leo, the (self-appointed) ruler of the Zodiac. Known for their radiance, nobility, and warmth, this fire sign shares a strong and intimate connection with the illustrious and majestic Ruby. This gemstone symbolizes power and passion, two qualities that also define Leos, making it the quintessential gem to amplify their inherent energy. 

The fiery and striking color of Ruby is a natural match for the bold and assertive Leo. The gem’s deep red hue corresponds to the color of the heart and reflects the element of fire in which the celestial Lions are born. Furthermore, Ruby’s splendid appearance mirrors the magnetism that Leo possesses, making it an exceptional emblem of their intense personalities. 

In addition to its symbolic resonance with the Leo sun sign, Ruby also offers a plethora of emotional and mental benefits that align with the temperament of this zodiac sign. The gemstone strengthens relationships and promotes emotional healing, addressing Leo’s need for affection and loyalty. Mental peace offered by Ruby allows celestial Lions to maintain their control and composure while ruling their emotional realm. 

The association of Ruby with wealth and good fortune is just another reason why the gem is ideally suited for Leos. Not only does it represent their drive and ambition, but it also attracts abundance, ensuring that their hard work and determination will be rewarded.

Sardonyx’s ability to protect, strengthen and uplift Leos whilst simultaneously helping them achieve greater emotional balance, makes it a valuable asset for this zodiac sign. 

Leos are often associated with confidence and pride. By improving perception and providing clarity in decision-making, Sardonyx enables Leos to make better judgments and maintain their composure even in the most challenging situations. This, in turn, boosts their self-esteem and overall self-worth. 

Bringing lasting happiness and stability to partnerships is another one of Sardonyx’s powers that cements its suitability for this zodiac sign. Loyalty, commitment and building strong relationships are among the most important objectives for most Leos and they can appreciate any help they get in that department. 

With its myriad of properties that synergize seamlessly with Leo’s natural attributes, Peridot is undeniably the perfect gemstone for these vivacious and radiant people. Associated with strength and vitality, this crystal can inspire inner radiance and courage in its wearer, granting them the resilience to face any challenges. This quality is highly compatible with Leo’s inherent determination and drive to excel in all aspects of their lives. 

Happiness is a vital component to Leo’s overall satisfaction. As peridot is intrinsically related to feelings of joy and self-worth, it resonates profoundly with Leo's craving for life, experiences, and passion. Its uplifting and revitalizing energy can continually inspire the wearer to chase after their dreams and strive for prosperity and contentment.
