“I Love Drama”
The first secret to know about a Leo in love is that it does NOT refer to a sun-sign Leo person. Only someone with the planet Venus in Leo will be a “Leo in love.” (Find out your Venus sign with our Venus Sign Calculator.)
Venus in Leo is a warm, dramatic, enthusiastic lover. They have great vitality, expressing their love playfully and generously. They are loyal. They will court you in a grand way, ignoring the world around you as they make you the center of their attention. Enjoy it, and then be sure to reciprocate it! They are simply treating you the way they want to be treated. If you don’t give them the attention they believe they deserve, you will pay the price. The Venus in Leo lady is a high-maintenance drama queen. She’s not afraid of making loud scenes in public places because you smiled at the waitress. Likewise, the Venus in Leo man had better be your king, or you will hear him roar. They are drama queens, but they are sincere and honest with their love. They don’t play power games. They want to be adored, damn it! They have a fundamental need to be the center of attention, and to dominate your emotional life. Believe it or not, they have a big heart.
Whereas Aries is selfish, Leo is self-centered. There is a difference. The Leo lover is proud, arrogant, and the center of their own attention. They are proud of themselves, and they honestly believe that everyone else should be proud of them, too. But they are not selfish. They are actually very generous with their resources, always showering their loved ones with gifts. But be sure, they give gifts the way a king or queen gives gifts to loyal subjects. They expect you to worship them. They can be blind to your needs, not even recognizing if they’ve been harsh with you because their attention is focused on themselves.
Madonna, Pamela Anderson, President George W. Bush, the Dalai Lama, and Tom Cruise have Venus in Leo, as did Michael Jackson and Mother Teresa.
Leo is the fixed fire sign, and Venus in Leo can be a painfully stubborn lover. They will stick around for a long time in a relationship. They will hold on to you for a long time after you break up with them, sometimes refusing to let go.
The Venus in Leo man is turned on by proud women decked out in jewelry, polished nails, and lots of accessories. He doesn’t mind if a woman has plastic surgery or other cosmetic enhancements. Whatever makes her look like a million bucks is okay. The Venus in Leo lady prefers to wear a tiara instead of a veil at her wedding.
How to Love Venus in Leo
Making your Venus in Leo lover feel loved is easy: worship them. Make them the center of your attention at all times. Don’t you dare look at another person when they’re near you. The Venus in Leo lover must come first in your life, before family, before everything. If you give anything less than that, the Leo lover will not feel loved. Neither smooth-talking words, nor sweet hugs will do the trick if they don’t feel that they are the center of your attention. So put your Leo lover on a pedestal and don’t take your eyes off them. They also enjoy receiving gifts; after all, they’ve already showered you with gifts. Try to make a habit of buying something for them everywhere you go, even if a small souvenir. If you go to a bookstore, buy them a bookmark; if you go the grocery store, buy them a card. They really take that to heart. They’re not picky with gifts, they just like to receive anything. They know it’s the thought that counts, and they want to know that you’ve been thinking about them everywhere. Praise your Venus in Leo lover when you talk to other people. They have a deep need for recognition, and they will understand such public praise as love. Praise and admiration mean more to them than any romantic date. You will be rewarded with a generous, warm, and honest drama queen.
Note: Your Venus sign shows your characteristics in close relationships, not necessarily in any other area of your life. Conjunctions to Venus from the outer planets will alter your love style.
