Family and friends will find themselves the beneficiaries of a Leo's desire to impress, whatever their age or financial position.
There is an element of youthfulness in the way Leos relate to their friends. They want everyone to enjoy being with them, and to join in everything that is entertaining, memorable, and rewarding. Outings will be planned with great enthusiasm and expectation, and in a certain Leo style. How this is interpreted will, of course, very much rely on the size of their budget - whether they are going to "treat" us or make the decision to ''go Dutch".
show off to their friends - though some would say so. It is far more likely that they just want to make sure that their friends are having a good time. They hate ''making do'', and will soon see to it that this does not happen: a typical girls' inexpensive morning out will be a small cup of coffee in the best coffee shop in town, followed by a wander through the mall with the famous designer stores - even though they know they can't afford to buy that Armani dress.

They will always encourage their friends to get as much out of life as possible, but must be careful not to become dogmatic and bossy. Most importantly, they must learn not to be upset when their advice falls on deaf ears. The lack of positive response will irritate and frustrate Leos, as, in their own minds, they will know for sure that their words of wisdom were good.
Believing that they are always right is a problem for Leos - and their friends. They should think again, because occasionally they can be horribly wrong or inconsiderate of their friends' true needs and feelings.
