Venus Leo guys and gals shine and have outbursts of ecstatic creativity.  Leo is Sun-kissed, and that's symbolic of the unlimited power that hits the Lion.

Venus Leo in love is flashy, with flares that might be short-lived if she doesn't get the admiration she craves. The Sun as Leo's planetary ruler has a cycle of rising and shining, and of setting, this Venus gets burned out if they are too "on" all the time.

 

Like the Lion, Leo in love spends a lot of time lounging around, with sudden bursts of enthusiasm. It's all or nothing for Leo, in matters of the heart.  But they are restored with recreation, an interesting word that has creation in it but means play or leisure. 

Venus Leo has a lust for life and a list of favorites that they can recite if asked.   The Venus Leo lover fears rejection above all and suffers agonizing heartbreak when humiliated. 

Here's how lusty, fiery Venus Leo matches with other Venus signs.

Venus Leo with Venus in Aries

Two red hot lovers with a lot of charisma. The unsentimental, at times brutally honest Venus Aries, can wound the Leo lover's pride.  Proud Leo adores big personalities, and Venus Aries doesn't disappoint.  Both have strong desires and will take the risk and give in to the spontaneous moment.  Beware of emphatic statements on both sides, that threaten to end things in a dramatic grand finale.

  If Venus Aries' eyes wander, or they show waning attention, the Lion roars.  Aries wakes up after a fight with amnesia and a smile, while Leo never forgets.  

Venus Leo with Venus in Taurus

Lovers of unique one-offs, and often with their own creative way about them.

Love grows in stability and pleasure, but there can be fisticuffs over the household budget.  Leo and Taurus admire works of art and have extravagant tastes.  The urge for both is to live their values and passions, and they get irritable when standards fall short. 

Venus in Leo with Venus in Gemini

You find a kindred spirit in Venus Gemini -- both of you find the amusing angle in any situation. First dates become a chance to make each other laugh, with each trying to top the other. Having found someone to play off, the antics and wit come in a steady stream. You and your Venus Gemini love are drawn to games, amusement parks, improv, fashion, and anything novel. You enjoy many days and nights in colorful places, engaging with everything actively, with your own observations.

At some point, you might wonder if life is all fun and games to your Venus Gemini. A sticking point for you is loyalty, and your capricious lover makes you wonder if that's on their agenda. As enlivening as your beloved is, you desire the kind of devotion some Venus Gemini's aren't equipped to give. Living with the uncertainty of loving such an erratic, changeable character may be hard on the heart.

There could be other factors, though, in the synastry, that give your love a more constant nature.

If you start to feel uneasy, you might attempt to rein in your flighty Venus Gemini playmate. The overdramatic and domineering side to your Venus Leo nature gives your sidekick the jitters or makes them spin off out of reach. If you accept Venus Gemini's need for space and lightness, this has the makings of a lifelong friendship. And lovers who are also friends, are the best kind.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Cancer

One thing that stands out is a shared love of children and all things related to childhood. First dates could begin with swapping stories of memorable events, and impressions from growing up. Your Venus Cancer lover will tune into you, with a desire to nurture and make you feel protected.

You'll appreciate their love of family, especially if they make friends-as-family, too.

But what about going out? Your Venus Cancer companion is only truly among people they know and trust. Mostly a homebody, who wants you all to themselves at home. You see all the world as your stage and are buoyed by seeing admiration in others' eyes. You get restless for excitement, and get irritable, even aggressive if you're stuck in the same ole. Your Venus Cancer sidekick, especially an insecure one, craves the familiar and "safe" zones, like home!

You tend to go high drama and your Venus Cancer lover can be shy with feelings (at least in public). You want ardent passion when what you get is the crab's invisible, but palpably felt, webbing of emotion around you. This can feel comforting or claustrophobic. There are big differences in your love styles. These are met in compromise, and understanding each other's nature. What matters is that you both want to be deeply loved and understood, for the unique person you are. When that's fostered, you both reassure the other that it's a big love.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Leo

Can one relationship contend with two drama kings, queens or one of each? That's the question here, with two lovers who bask in the admiration of the other. Are you noble enough to let the other shine? And vice versa?

That's a core theme, but beyond that, it's a match with a lot going for it. You and your Venus Leo lover are both passionate, and not afraid to give in to that passion.

You're both risk-takers, but also prone to seeing only what you want to see. A breathless affair could be short-lived if reality intrudes in some way that bursts the fantasy.

But if you're a grounded twosome, lots of fun and adventure awaits. You'll be superfun parents, and take great pride in your children. Holidays and birthday parties are standout moments on your life's journey. You both crave luxury and stylish clothes and enjoy being seen. You're also creative powerhouses and can support each others' ambitions as leaders and performers in your fields. A magnificent match, when you don't block the others lives, but combine your shiny selves.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Virgo

You'd like your Venus Virgo lover to be visibly enthralled, overwhelmed by your special something. But what you get is more understated -- depending on other astrological features in your love's chart. A Venus Virgo helpmate has a natural reserve, but they are diligent in creating a daily rhythm that works in practice. What your love lacks in theatrics, they make up for in sincerity, loyalty, devotion.

The love manner of Venus in this meticulous sign brings a focus on the little things in life. Your nature, on the other hand, is to aggrandize everything, to find meaning with dramatic license, big shows of affection and luxury. You could be turned off by the modesty and even self-denigrating way of your Venus Virgo lover. And you might feel silently judged, for being one to toot your own horn. You're attracted to confident and uninhibited lovers.

But the Virgin is sensuous, in rare moments when she lets her hair down.

Your Venus Virgo lover shows you the way to ground your enthusiasm and find a happy, productive rhythm. Over time, in a chaotic world of phoneys and status-seekers, you might thank your lucky stars. Once committed, a Venus Virgo lover is a constant in a chaotic world and a supporter of your dreams.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Libra


You admire your Venus Libra's social ease and self-image -- somehow always looking put together. You know they'll make you look good! Parties throw at chez Venus Leo/Libra are memorable bashes with a tone of dignity. You're both romantics at heart, and often, your love affair is the centerpiece of your fabulous life.

You won't like being talked over, or interrupted by this chatty Venus, though.

My husband and I have this combo (he Venus Libra and me Venus Leo), and his loquaciousness is legendary. It intrudes on the Venus Leo need to be the center of attention! Venus in airy Libra finds pleasure in sharing ideas, always seeking new ways to bring balance and beauty to the relationship. You're more instinctual, and would prefer not to deliberate over choices. You're more likely to snap on what you love, and go for it, without a lot of analysis. But your Venus Libra mate has a gift for weighing options, and is a great sounding board.

Your Venus Libra's love style is attentive, and very responsive to your edicts. Yours is a more self-centered Venus, with a lover that's partnership-minded. You sense that tending to the relationship is your mate's top preoccupation, and really bloom under this kind of built-in respect. At times, you'll want to play the peacock, though, and put on a solo display.

You begin to rebel if you feel subsumed in too much togetherness. From time to time, you'll assert your own favorites, with a showy reminder that you're here to shine as a unique being.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Scorpio


Make no mistake, this is a steamy combo -- water and fire brings your love to the boiling point!

The attraction is strong, as fixed signs, because you sense the substance and intensity there. You and your Venus Scorpio love crave intensely involved affairs. And you don't shy away when there's heat (conflict), desiring a love that is colorful. Sometimes this devolves into lots of dramatic fights, and equally climactic making up sessions. Your love is tested in the pressure cooker, but that's exactly where you're both at home.

A trap here is obsession, and a theme is playing with power. You're both very strong-willed and at times, stubborn. You've got a showy side, and if you're feeling ignored, you might turn on the charm to turn heads. Being flirty to get a reaction is a way to intensify the drama. Though your Venus Scorpio love hides his or her feelings, you sense their need for control and desire to possess body and soul.

Your Venus Scorpio lover might have a strange hold on you, psychically and emotionally. Life with an underworld lover, can make you feel like Persephone down in Hades.

A key here is catharsis -- the art of taking raw emotion and moving it, being changed by it.

It's a tall order for any relationship, but if any two are game, the pair of you are!

Venus in Leo with Venus in Sagittarius


Some wild and vividly memorable times are predestined when two very passionate lovers meet. You're both bursting on first dates, turning red in the face, flushed with excitement. You're quick to get physical, and have strong appetites. Your two fire signs are generous, active, affectionate, spontaneous, instinctual -- and through these shared traits, you fall in love.

Where you diverge, is with your love rhythm, as you're fixed (Leo) and your love is mutable (Sagittarius). When the honeymoon phase is over, and there's a settling in, your lover grows edgy. It's his or her Venusian nature to wander, and this restlessness can make you feel like you're not enough. And every Venus Leo wants to be more than enough -- Beyonce's line in Austin Powers comes to mind, when she said, "I'm a whole lotta woman!"

You'll want to honor your own needs for loyalty and hold to those standards. Chances are high that your Venus Sagittarius love will be honest, and prefer to stay friends, than ruin your good thing. If the timing is inspired, you might meet your love when they're ready to explore deeper intimacy.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Capricorn


Your love interest comes off as all business at first, and very guarded. Until your Venus Capricorn lover is sure of you and the relationship, it's a wintry reception to your sunny overtures. Capricorn is Saturn-ruled, don't forget, and the relating style here leans toward getting a sober assessment. You're more apt to get attention from your Venus Capricorn crush, if there's work to do together, be it in business, the arts, or as pillars in society.

This is tough, because you crave admiration and might feel neglected here. If your mate is threatened by your big personality, they might actively block you, perhaps unconsciously. Venus Capricorn will show appreciation for your ambition, but won't be a cheerleader. You've got an ally, though, in steady achievement over time. Your Venus Capricorn partner (and they are marriage oriented) can be your rock. And always come through, handling all the ground-level kinds of concerns that you're not keen to bother with, anyway!

You might come to the conclusion that your Venus Capricorn lover is just not that into you. This may or may not be true. It could just be that you're not getting the kind of praise that keeps your spirits buoyed.

Your lover has bouts of unshakeable melancholy when he or she has to retreat to the cave. This could push your love to the limits. But then you remember the times when he or she makes a wisecrack that's both funny and profound. The Venus Capricorn loves with an old soul, and has staying power. Capricorn ages in reverse, so your love grows young and playful with each anniversary. When there's a real love connection, this is a pairing to take you into the sunset years.

Venus in Leo with Venus in Aquarius


There's something special about your Venus Aquarius lover that pulls you in. You thrive in the gaze of such accepting eyes. You sense that what's unique, even far out, about you, will be whole heartedly smiled upon. You're magnetized by the dignity and very original sense of style exhibited here. You're natural friends and very social, perhaps meeting in a friend clique first.

You're attracted to the wierd sense of humor and individuality of your Venus Aquarius mate. This gets your mojo going, to be theatrical, make declarations and generally be over-the-top.

You're both fixed signs, and interested in exploring stability in love. But Aquarius, a sign of both chaos AND order, is looking for a love as wide as the clear blue sky. They thrive when they're actively engaged with many people, often big groups of all kinds. You desire to be the one and only, not one of many. If your Venus Aquarius wants to keep you, he or she will single you out, with some quality romancing.

    Venus in Leo with Venus in Pisces


    You sense the kind-hearted romantic soul here who is as interested in the Arts as you are. Your Venus Pisces lover has an alluring style -- he or she explores their many personae through fashion and looks. You sense the classic chameleon. The sign of the Fishes is all that, and the one most likely to swim away if things get intense.

    This tendency to hide is alarming, and can make you feel disrespected. You want to see signs of love for you. The Venus Pisces love style is elusive, and while there's passion, it might not have the punch you're craving.
