Depending on how you handle the Leos in your company, the battle against the Zombies can either be a widely successful mission, or can blow up in your face, with a Leo readily by your side to say, “I told you so.” Shower a Leo with respect~ and I mean shovelfuls of it, don’t just use teaspoons~ flatter them, give them a lot of responsibility and if possible, put them in a position of power, and you will be richly rewarded. Leos know how to handle a lot of responsibility and more importantly, they know how to rally and inspire a group of people. They are charismatic and authoritative figures, adept at earning the confidence of those under their leadership, and though they will inevitably come off looking arrogant and standoffish, they will rarely be hated for it. But the worst thing you can do is give them menial tasks, criticize them or worse, ignore them. A neglected lion is not as much spiteful as he is sulky and morose, and try as you might to get him back into the action when you need him, he won’t budge. That is, not until and unless you sit down and praise him for a couple of hours, assuming of course that the blood-thirsty Zombies agree to take a break while you rally your troops together. In short, treat the Leo like a King and you will have an ideal leader to rally your cause against the Zombie apocalypse.
Leos are very practical people and though they might not have the Scorpio level of cunning or the Gemini knack for manipulation, they excel at strategizing. Leos like positions of glamor~ what else do you expect from a fire sign?~ and planning a strategy and seeing it come to fruition is something they will enjoy. Whether at the head of the resistance against the Zombies, or amongst the masses struggling for survival, Leos everywhere would be busily strategizing. Another thing they are good at is a battle cry, should you ever need it. Ever hear a lion roar? They have deep, commanding voices generally, and even the women have strong lungs that project their voices clearly and with authority. It’s one of the reasons they aspire to leadership, they are very capable of managing large crowds or addressing them. Position your Leos throughout the battlefield among the troops and leave it to them to belt out the battle cries needed to charge forward. Weapon of choice? Give them a sword. Guns are well and good for the sharp-shooting Virgo, perched on top of a building somewhere, or for the trigger-happy Libra that will enjoy the empowerment that comes with wielding such a weapon. But give the Leo a sword, something they can wield manually and with flamboyance, particularly when there are others watching. After all, where’s the fun in shooting Zombies from thirty feet away? Hacking them to pieces from up close is far more fun, especially if you’re a Leo.
