"Success is most often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable."
-- Coco Chanel (Leo)
When the goddess of beauty and love enters the Red-Carpet zone of Leo on June 28, our likes and dislikes get a Red-Carpet-worthy upgrade. It's time to honor our inner royalty and to give and receive in a magnanimous way. Leo is one of the most loyal and big-hearted signs of the zodiac, so our relationships and style of relating become more generous and romantic over the next few weeks.
Lovers may seem a bit more high maintenance under this influence, and the need to be adored is exaggerated. We may all be feeling like we need more attention and appreciation while Venus tours superstar Leo. If it suddenly seems like everyone and their cousin has become an attention junkie overnight, this can be traced to the Leo influence. Our need to shine and be seen is huge now.
The key to this placement is to give what you wish to receive. Any stinginess or cold-hearted tendencies will be immediately rejected. Your attraction level depends on self-confidence, open-heartedness and generosity now. Leo is the sign of self-expression and the inner child. This could be an incredibly joyful and creative time if you access the wonderful childlike nature of Leo in your relationships.
The downside of this placement is stubborn pride and the need for excessive attention and flattery. Think of the energy of the cat, it wants what it wants when it wants it. Proper stroking, feeding and attention makes the cat purr. But if you try to restrain, control or limit the independent nature of the cat, prepare for biting and claw marks. Opulence and luxury are favored during this time, so be sure to treat yourself and/or your lover like a rock star, and all will be fabulous for the next few weeks. Meow!
