Leo genuinely adores other people, and innately gets that the more people you know, the easier life can be. Leos easily hand out their phone number, are quick to follow or DM on Instagram, and will invite you to their happy hour five minutes after meeting you. But getting to know a Leo on a deeper level can be challenging. For starters, it's tough to pin down someone with that kind of social schedule.

A Leo is a valuable ally in your social circle, and when he or she does reveal secrets, listen up and feel honored!
