They are the royal leaders of the Hindu Zodiac. The 5th in the line of Zodiac, they are much like their name, strong, fierce, bold, courageous and regal in their lifestyles, ways, and expression. Amazingly creative in almost all spheres of their lives, Simha individuals are independent and dominant.

Known to be the most authoritative amongst all the Signs of Zodiac, Simha or Lions are often brave-hearts, and their confidence, ambition, and positive thinking are exemplary and unparalleled.

Characteristics of Simha Rashi - Leo


Their general appearance mostly gives an impression of nobility, class, pride, and poise. They have a graceful gait. They have reddish complexion. They have strong bones, a broad forehead, beautiful eyes, and a big nose. They have a tall stature mainly because of their long legs. The eyes are striking and brilliant. They have powerful physique and broad chest.


Fittingly symbolized, by the Lion they radiate power and majesty. They are born leaders and like to be associated with people of great social standing. However, they are warmly spirited, eager to leap into action and are driven by the desire to be loved and appreciated.

At the core, they are soft and go to great lengths to help others out of their predicaments. They greatly appreciate the beauty and are naturally attracted to beautiful people. When it comes to money, ironically, they can go overboard with spending but detest taking debts. However, most of them manage to strike a fine balance.


As a Lover, Leos are an extremely passionate person. They are adventurous, fun and very energetic, especially when it comes to getting physical. They draw a clear distinction between love and sex. They will select a mate who does not have any silly inhibitions and does not interfere in their daily routine. In short, they are very independent people who prefer their partners to be intellectuals.

As a friend, they are very true and loyal which is why they make ideal companions. They will stand by their friends through thick and thin, right till the very end, which means, till they have solved the problems that their friends may be facing. They give all of their care and warmth to their friends and will always try to keep them happy and safe.


Though people under Leo Rashi are by and large of strong built, back pains or related issues of the spine can be a bane for them. If they are not careful with their posture, especially during teenage and adolescence, the backbone can cause severe problems later. Their heart and eyes are the other problem areas. It is certain that the major danger comes from the heart, and that there is a risk of developing a heart condition if they experience situations of severe stress or serious disputes. They need to practice yoga and breathing exercises regularly to stay calm.

An unhappy Leo may become depressed and as a result, resort to overeating causing that feared stomach bulge as well as back pain.
