What are the Leo strengths? Or, as this Leo asks, are they a joke?
Leo Strengths? Light Over Shadow, Art, And Dignity
I don’t know what forums you’ve been frequenting, but they sound a bit limited, and their ‘general consensus’ is incorrect. Of course, there are stupid Leos. Sun Sign does not determine intelligence, and there are many different styles of intelligence. There are low-vibe versions of any sign.
If expressed poorly, Leos default to Dark Sun Leo, like a walking-talking, chaos-addicted eclipsed version of themselves, sucking up all the light and heat in a room, visibly annoyed when the conversation turns away from them.
And Leos are courageous, but they value their dignity and languid chill. If it is a choice between losing either of those two or being seen to ‘lose’ to someone whose opinion they don’t care about anyway, what do you think wins out?

Their courage is that of the Performance Leo, showing up and radiating solar charisma no matter what. It may or may not be in their contract with a studio, but for every Leo, professionally a star or not, it is in their covenant with God. AKA Source Vibe, Aslan, Quintessence, Higher Self, or whatever you want to call it.
Lack of savagery or immovability is not a problem. You may have Leo Self-Limiting Syndrome? And sure, occasionally, Leo aspirations congeal into pretensions, but they’re on a creative frequency, one that is easily scrambled or jammed by competing signals.
To me, the true strength of a Leo is that they carry the light and shine it into the shadowy corners of dark rooms or psyches. An actualized Leo validates others with their presence. They’re art, generosity, and yes, epic hair.
