Funny, loyal, and magnetic, those born under the sign of the Dog Leo like to keep things light and easy. They are idealists who also want the world to be more idealistic with them. They like discussing their philosophies about life with anyone who shares their opinions, though they are not confrontational enough to want to argue with someone about whose opinion is right or wrong.
Some people consider Dog Leos to be immature, which is partially accurate. Dog Leos usually grow up with a specific role in their family and never really shed this role as they grow up. They will likely still do what their parents tell them to do, whether they agree with it or not. Dog Leos take the attitude of “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it”. If they are comfortably secure in their current lifestyle, it’s going to be difficult to get them to change it.
All Dog Leos really want to do is have a good time, which can make it difficult for them to focus when it comes time to work. More than anything, though, Dog Leos are loyal, so they show up and do their duty in return for enough money to provide the basic security that they need to feel stable. Members of this sign like nice things, but don’t need to have them. They prefer love and friendship over money or success, and will only really work if they have to, or if they find a field that they are genuinely interested in.
In most cases, Dog Leos will reach a point in their adult lives where they will be challenged to start acting their age. On their own, they would be content being a college student for the rest of their lives, but even they know that their lifestyle is not sustainable. Dog Leos find the daily grind of reality depressing, and there are few things more difficult to be around than a Dog Leo in a bad mood. This is an unfortunate truth that members of this sign will need to come to terms with. They attract people to them with their fun and easy going nature, but when they are down and out, Dog Leos notoriously become moody, depressed complainers who can’t seem to find a glass that isn’t half-empty. This is part of the reason that others find members of this sign to be immature.
Dog Leos are artistic by nature, and enjoy coming up with unusual solutions to common problems. They are also socially aware and consider themselves “free thinkers” who believe strongly in social justice and equal rights for all people. They don’t like to argue these beliefs with anyone, and others usually learn this quickly after a rare angry outburst or two.
Dog Leo Traits
You seem to live more in the past than in the present. If you’ve undergone reversals of fortune, you make a fixation on them and tend to live only on the memories of a prestigious past, which may be real or imaginary. As your destiny is often marked with a tragic event in your childhood — it may sometimes be your father’s death — it’s a tendency to guilt and expiation that guides your actions and reactions.
You’re more sedate than the pure Leo and can show great courage in difficult moments. Having a profound need to make yourself accepted, loved, and recognized, you’re ready to sacrifice yourself, to do much for others, and to assume heavy responsibilities.
Your material life is made of numerous ups and downs, of successes and failures. You’re made to play a first-rate social or political role. Endowed with great capacity of work, you always succeed in restoring your situation if it has been compromised by circumstances.
Heartwise, you’re more guided by instinct of domination than by sheer love. Ambition, or interest, often mingles with your sentimental affairs. But when you attach yourself, it’s profoundly and with loyalty. You’re ready to do everything for your loved ones.
