"Love is not a feeling. Love is an action, an activity … Genuine love implies commitment and the exercise of wisdom … love as the will to extend oneself for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth … true love is an act of will that often transcends ephemeral feelings of love or cathexis, it is correct to say, 'Love is as love does'."

-- M Scott Peck

The planet of beauty and love is feeling big-hearted and romantic in the sign of Leo. And now that she's hitting the edge of Saturn in the sign of deep emotional intimacy, our passion is being tested. Both Leo and Scorpio are loyal and amorous signs but also very attached to their pride.

The positive potential of this planetary friction is that we can deepen our commitment and surpass our tendencies to reject or emotionally withhold out of pride. The negative potential is if we let our egos and stubborn side interfere with our need to love and be loved. The cosmic challenge right now is to embrace love fiercely and go beyond our stubborn pride.

Both Leo and Scorpio are signs that hate to appear vulnerable or needy (especially when they are). They thrive on strength and dread weakness, and yet both need to learn to lean on others a bit more and get through giving. We are being challenged to let go of the need to be right or appear in control if it causes us to lose our connection to our hearts.

This is an excellent time to deepen our creative capacity and bring more intimacy to our romantic lives. If we can commit to keeping our hearts open and going into our fears without letting any rejection issues from the past or some puffed up need to look like a rockstar who doesn’t care block our love, than we will have passed the test. It’s about letting love -- not pride -- prevail now.
