"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Leo lives to let love rule, and we're now summoning the courage to wear our hearts on our sleeves. Leo applauds excellent showmanship. If you're going to show your love, do it with serious flair and bravado, or don't do it at all. Generosity is key under this influence, so don't hold back. It's nearly impossible to overdo it. If you have the tendency to be a bit miserly with your affections, this influence will do its best to force your heart wide open.
Compliments are like catnip to the Leo, so be profuse in your declaration of worship. Expressing our respect and gratitude to those we love is essential now. Pride is the shadow side of Leo, so if we don't feel we're being appreciated, we'll go out of our way to. Venus is most magnanimous when she takes her throne as the Lioness.
"I am woman, here me roar" is the anthem for this placement of the goddess of love and beauty. It's all about confidence and courage, so kick your fears to the curb. Love takes strength and courage, but the payoff is deliciously worth it now.
