Leo Zodiac Sign Birthstones, Traits and Color (2021)

Leo Traits

Leo Zodiac Sign Birthstones, Traits and ColorIf you were born anywhere between July 23d and August 22nd that means you’re a Leo! Leo is the star of the zodiac and everyone revolves around Leo because they’re ruled by the Sun and everything revolves around the Sun. That’s how Leo’s are in real life and that’s how they find themselves. It’s not because they are needy and they always want to draw attention to themselves some way or another, it’s only because they’re the most magnetic and charismatic sign of the zodiac. They are natural born actors and entertainers and they want to be liked and loved by people in general. So if you’ve got a Leo in your life, good for you because you can never get bored with a Leo by your side.

They are fixed signs which makes them a bit stubborn like all other fixed signs (Taurus, Aquarius, or Scorpio). That means that whenever they’re sure about something, (and in general they’re sure about everything basically), they’ve set their minds to a certain tune, it’s hard to make them change their minds and make them turn around. So don’t try to push them because you’re not going to get your way; don’t try to manipulate a Leo because a Leo knows what a Leo wants. Leos are very confident and that helps them in so many ways; whatever they touch and whatever they get involved in tends to work really well because they trust themselves, they know that they’ve got the skills and the gifts that they need to make things work and more often than not, things actually work. They bring a lot of passion and enthusiasm into anything that they get involved in.  They’re genuinely the people who you are unlikely to ever get bored next to.

Leo is also a fire sign, which signifies passion, love, energy, and the masculine sign. They’re very prone to action, they always find themselves on the move, on the go always doing something. They need to do something with their lives, they’re not passive, but very active people. They enjoy running and working out and they’re very good at team sports and games as well, but they need to shine and more often than not they will take the lead because that’s who they are. Leo just roars and everyone else follows them. Leos rule the fifth house of the zodiac which represents children. Leo is the child and the forever young sign of the zodiac; they get along very, very well with the little ones as well. They can spend hours talking to them playing with them.

The fifth house also represents true love. Leo is the most romantic sign of the zodiac so grandiose gestures of love like romantic trips, surprises – that’s what a Leo lover can bring into your life. But it’s very hard to keep up with the Leo because if you’re not as entertaining as he or she is, if you’re not as charismatic, if you don’t like being a surrounded by people as much as Leo does, then you will find that your fling is going to be very short-lived. Leo doesn’t have the time and doesn’t want to put the effort into a relationship that doesn’t flow smoothly. Leo is very confident and this can sometimes turn into a drawback. If you step on their pride or if you step on their ego which is quite big because they’re very proud of themselves, you can bet that they’re going to, not hate you, but they will ignore you for the rest of their lives and you will not be a part of their lives if they if they can help it.

Leo, from a physical point of view, rules the back so their back is a very sensitive area. They like working on their bodies, they enjoy being complimented on their bodies, but in general as well. The easiest way to get to a Leo’s heart is to compliment them because they genuinely want people to like them, they generally want to be to be popular, to attract likeminded people around them and people who can benefit from their energy and their creativity and their ideas. Creativity is a key word when it comes to Leo.  Leo rules the fifth house of the zodiac which also represents creativity so this sign, along with Aquarius, has the most outside of the box ideas ever.

Leo also rules pleasure; they want to live well, they want to enjoy life to the fullest, they live in the now. So unlike, for instance, Aquarius who lives in the future and always thinks about ways to improve the world, Leo makes the most of the moment, of the now. They understand the importance of living in the present. Aquarius is at the opposite side of the zodiac wheel which makes Leo and Aquarius natural partners for marriage and business. They have nothing in common except for the fact that they’re both individualists, they’re both fixed signs, so in their head things are very clear but somehow they are magnetically drawn to each other. Why is that? Because they can learn loads from each other. Leo likes to shine Leo is confident, Leo lives in the now, whereas Aquarius wants to improve humanity. Aquarius doesn’t care about itself, it cares about the greater good, and Aquarians wants progress. And they can all both learn these things from each other. if you’ve got any Leo in your life, be happy and spend as much time as you can with them because they are great friends, they’re very loyal with their friends, with their significant others and who knows one day they might become famous and you can count on the fact that they will never forget who’s been by their side.

Leo Birthstones

Leo Zodiac Sign Birthstones, Traits and ColorEach of the twelve zodiac signs has corresponding birthstones that bring prosperity and protection. From ancient times, birthstones have been worn as jewelry because it is believed that doing so can unleash the powerful metaphysical properties of these stones. Knowing different birthstones for each sign can also help in choosing a very meaningful gift for your significant other, family member, or a friend. Leo birthstones are peridot, amber, onyx, rutilated quartz, ruby and garnet. Knowing the properties of each one and their effect on the star sign of Leo can help you pick the right one.


Peridot is a gorgeous gemstone with bright green color that instantly demands attention. Any type of peridot jewelry can be used by Leo for protection as well as bringing positive energy into all aspects of life. This is a very active stone which is perfect for the energetic Leo nature. Peridot has a unique ability to enhance and bring forward all of the Leo positive traits, while curbing the negative ones. It will have an amazing effect on your character and you will notice that all insecurities are going away and only the powerful Leo straight and confidence stay. Leos have the strength and power to change not only their immediate surroundings but the whole society. They are the ones to boldly march forward, bringing positive change to people’s lives. Peridot is such a stone that lights a fire and pushes a Leo to make the world better for everybody.  


There is nothing more beautiful than wonderful amber gemstones and jewelry. But the visual appearance is not all that amber is about, it is also an incredibly powerful stone and birthstone for Leo which can drastically change one’s life. Amber is a stone that creates such a powerful positive energy that everything is possible if you draw from its infinite power. Its golden color corresponds to the Sun energy which rules the zodiac of Leo. That infinite brightness is what makes Leo move forward in life and achieve things that can often seem out of reach. Leo is not the one who will think something is simply impossible and can’t be achieved; the amazing life force of this sign is what propels them into great achievements and success. If you’re a set on a career goal or want to go a level up in your life, amber is the perfect birthstone to help you achieve just that.


Black onyx jewelry is highly recommended for anyone with the zodiac of Leo and there are a couple of reasons for that. Leos naturally have a very high and abundant energy, but it is not always spent in the best possible ways. Onyx birthstone directs the powerful Leo energy where it is needed the most and produces the absolute best results. Leos are very capable of being on the top, but they need to watch out not to get lost in the power and have some humility. Don’t get too caught up in the abundance and wealth around you and use your powers for good. Black onyx birthstone provides that self-control and stops Leo from acting impulsively. It is amazing to be powerful and successful, but we also need to stay grounded and true to ourselves.

Rutilated Quartz

The wonderful rutile inclusions in this quartz gemstone are absolutely mesmerizing and captivating to look at. This birthstone is one of the unique ones and it corresponds to Leo’s desire to look good and always stand out. If a Leo wears any type of rutilated quartz jewelry, he/she will stand out from the crowd and be able to show what makes them so special. The golden color of the rutilated quartz is also very inviting which makes it a great stone for attracting Leo love interest. If you have your eyes set on that special someone, but don’t know how to make the first move, just wear your rutilated quartz jewelry in a visible place (preferably as a necklace) and your crush will be immediately drawn to you and start a conversation. Your Leo charm will take care of the rest.


Leo Zodiac Sign Birthstones, Traits and ColorThis stunningly beautiful red gemstone is not only appealing to the eye, but it is another one of the powerful Leo birthstones. Ruby enhances Leo’s mental powers which can be very helpful and beneficial during work. Since ruby is also a very royal stone, it attracts wealth and abundance, and we all know that people born in the sign of Leo like a very comfortable and luxurious life. Because of its red color, ruby birthstone is also considered to be a gemstone of love and relationships. Many people are attracted to Leos, but they can sometimes be very picky and overly cautious in choosing their partner. This passionate stone promotes love and good relationships, regardless of whether they’re new or old. If you’re feeling stuck in your marriage and that spark is lost, wearing ruby jewelry might reignite the fire.


Garnet is another birthstone that represents Leo personality really well. It is very powerful and mysterious, but also very loyal and wise. Leos who wear garnet necklace or bracelet will often feel like everything is falling into its place and becoming clearer. Garnet will show you the right path that you need to take in order to achieve all of the things you want and avoid any major obstacles. People born in the sign of Leo are very determined and skilled usually, but can sometimes get lost and don’t know where to go. Garnet will remove any doubts immediately and safely bring you to your goals.

Leo Colors

Different colors have a different effect on each star sign. That’s why it’s a good idea to stick with colors that correspond to your zodiac. Because Leo is ruled by the sun, gold, orange, and yellow are the absolute best colors. Purple and red are also good choices. The main thing about Leos is that they don’t respond well to muted and dark colors; they’re into bright and bold shades. Oranges and yellows give a Leo so much energy and drive so it’s a great idea to surround yourself with those colors. Gold jewelry is a must for Leos because it will show their royal energy.
