Today we are going to discuss the appearance and style of Leo. Out of all the rising signs Leo is usually easy to spot. As always I will be giving celebrity examples that fit the Leo “look”. This doesn’t mean they have their rising sign in the sign of Leo. We will discuss the most common facial and physical features, fashion and behavior of the Leo. These are based on my observations and guessing games compared to actual natal charts. Of course each person is unique and ALL placements in your natal chart play a part in how you look!
Let’s start with some characteristic facial features:
The faces are usually wide with a chin that is square or rounded but seems to be a little short. The structure gives that impression of strength and is usually flat and not very sharp. The forehead tends not to be high, with rounded corners. The most noticeable parts are the cat-like eyes: not big but elongated and shiny. The nose is usually small, short and very cute with a flat bridge and the tip is wider with a nice round bump. Think of Marline Monroe! You can also notice how other than the tip the nose tends to flatness. Eye color tends to be more light then dark- usually a mix of colors such as hazel or green.
“Typical” Leo faces are Sun in Cancer and Leo rising Selena Gomez and Virgo Sun Claudia Schiffer and Leo Sun Jenifer Lawrence . Oh, and Johnny Depp is a Leo rising if I ever saw one- just look at that face shape.
They have beautiful thick eyelashes that frame those gorgeous cat eyes. The mouth is usually the widest part of the face and the teeth are gorgeous.
Leo faces are very appealing and are considered sexy- as they combine cuteness with something a bit feral.
The most famous characteristic is the thick mane of hair. It is a funny thing to mention but tends to be true. Leo beauties have strong, thick and shiny hair which they style in a way that makes it grab attention. It tends to be parted to the side, have bangs or sit high up like a crown. Hair color even if dark tends to be warm and lean towards golden tones.
The Leo body is not very tall and wider rather rather than elongated. Leo They tends to have wide shoulders and strong muscles. This rising sign is usually athletic and that shows. If not for their active nature, they can have a bit of baby fat and rounded edges. The legs and arms are large, the neck not very long. I should mention that all this applies to Leo rising males as well although frankly, suite and black sun glasses are not so interesting to show. You should know that they KNOW how to wear a suite or anything that is royalty worthy.
Leo looks good for several reasons (other than being beautiful): They have good strong body posture and always they carry themselves with dignity. They also appear confident not just because of the way they sit or stand but due to their hand gestures and the way they hold their head. There is something regal, can be a bit lazy but always self-contained about their body language. They don’t wave around with their hands in nervous gestures or jump around – they let you come to them. Notice that they also don’t turn their head more than they have to.
Now to some Leo fashion: Leo doesn’t wear baggy clothes. They just don’t. The clothes have to fit and often times they are tight. They choose clothes which they consider classy- something that isn’t always the new trend but makes them feel best dressed. They like to wear fabrics with some sheen and texture to it and love adding jewelry, bags, and ties- anything for a bit more shine. Some would wear “strange” new trends if it makes them feel good but most start off with classic and end up stealing the spot light. From all the rising signs Leo is most likely to wear gold. Yes this statement is true. They will wear black- because really what they prefer is dramatic color. Noticeable, are the shapes they choose- they don’t mind dramatic big shapes or very tight fits, they are fearless. At heart they are romantics so big frills, long glamorous dresses and geometrical designs are all a great fit. I should mention Andy Warhol was a Leo with a Leo rising- that gives you some clues. They are cool. Leo is creative, artistic, romantic and warm and that is obvious in their fashion choices.

I would only like to add that Leo rising tend to be warm and supportive people. They see the world as their stage and are more than willing to have you there with them. They have tremendous creative drive, passion and child-like playfulness. They respect themselves and as a result they respect you. They have a big heart and a hot temper but they don’t judge. Leo just wants to shine and fill the world with the light of their personality. As long as Leo has that- they behave. If circumstances take away from their light and warmth they turn to anger and depression. Leo rising must not repress their drive and passion- the world is better when they share the full force of who they are.
