Leo in Love

Leo rules the heart, making you the most passionate of signs. Once you had captured the heart of the most important man in the world - Daddy - you knew that your true goal in life was to conquer and rule, to become the queen of hearts! Hyperbole aside, you are coquettish, bright, sexy and giving: you wear your heart on your sleeve and, like your fiery sisters, Ms Aries and Ms Sagittarius, you have no qualms about chasing your man until he gets you. Yet you are more faithful, possessive and persistent than the other fire signs, and you have more feminine wiles and a serious talent to flirt, which puts you at the top of the list of the most desirable women in the zodiac. And once you have given your heart, it is with life-long intent.

So do you have a problem? I know it's hard to believe that there could be one but it is your very regal and dominating personality that can get in the way of perfect marital bliss. You can do everything better than most people, but most guys really don't like to be outshone by their partner: let them make mistakes, accept the occasional less than perfect result - they, like you, also thrive on praise and adoration. You know in your heart that appearances do not really matter, yet you can alienate your admirers with your near-obsessive drive to prove you are the best. Relax, enjoy - no one's grading you on performance and achievement.

Your alter-ego is Scarlett O'Hara - she whose love for the unattainable and basically rather weak and flaccid, Ashley, blinded her to the one man who really loved her and was her true match - Rhett Butler. How many times have you found yourself saying, in the wake of heartbreak - I'll get him back, however long it takes: tomorrow is another day.

The Leo Man

He's the one standing out in a crowd. Yes, he may be a bit loud, but he's very attractive and making a big impression. Never forget this: Mr Leo needs an audience, even an audience of one will do, and there must be applause and adulation, otherwise he'll get very cranky, go off his food, and very possibly off you too. All right, he takes a lot of work but when he's happy and in love there's no one more generous, adoring and faithful. He really won't look at another woman once his heart is taken. The Leo man loves the kind of female who is reserved, sophisticated, intelligent and feminine - he needs the nurture and sensuousness of water-sign women and the wisdom and solidness of earth. Then again, he's such a ladies man, he's open to a heart to heart with any sign.

Who's For You

All the fixed signs hold an attraction for you - that's Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius and Leo. Your own sign is both a comfort and a challenge since both your good and bad qualities are fortified by each other. Mr. Scorpio is well nigh irresistible: all those intense looks and steamy exchanges - has passion ever reached greater heights. In the long run, however, the love-hate quality of this relationship can be a killer. Mr. Taurus is another must-have: this man is sensuous, faithful and always there, in fact that's almost the problem in the long term - he's so predictable and dogged that the relationship withers on the vine. As for Mr. Aquarius, he's an ideal match: stimulating, detached enough to keep you interested, yet basically loyal. The problem here is sex - a bit on the cool and intermittent side for you. Gemini and Libra are two other signs that fit you like a glove - bright, forgiving, tolerant and happy to let you run the show, provided you give them room to breathe.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Leo

You are going to learn a lot this year. Not only because there are marvellous lessons to be learned in terms of experience but you could also find yourself taking courses or embarking on a programme which will add to your bank of skills and increase your earning power. Or it could simply be that you develop a thirst for knowledge. From time to time Saturn may cramp your style, whether you’ll be too busy for pleasure or because bringing new things into being involves struggle and delays, but press on. Later in 2017 you can expect good news and a delivery of sorts. Travel is on the agenda, and people you meet en route or in distant places could become important figures in your life. And perhaps because of those new relationships old friendships and working associations may fade. On balance, though 2017 is a good year for the Leo Lion.

August 2016 saw the first eclipse on your relationship axis for eighteen years and it marked the beginning of a series which will take until January 2019 to complete. Over the next couple of years it may seem as though your love life is entirely governed by fate, however, the reality is that you have drawn these experiences toward you because they are an essential part of your life journey. Events on or near the 11th February and the 7th and 21st August should be seen in this context. You may fall deeply in love or an out of the blue development could precipitate the demise of a long-standing relationship. And although I have singled out these dates there could be other periods of 2017 that bring that element of the extraordinary into play with your love life.

It’s not what you know but who you know! Rarely have other people been so important to your progress as they are in 2017. The past also has a part to play, in some cases because efforts in years gone by bear fruit and in others because you will be working with people from your past. Although you may feel your creativity blocked or compromised on occasion, you now have a voice so that your thoughts and talents can reach a wider public. Writing, teaching and speaking could be on the agenda and there could be plenty of travel in connection with work. Neptune continues to influence finances, so although you may come into money you will still need to be careful where and with whom you place your trust - keep enough in reserve to cover an unexpected outlay, especially in mid-June and/or September.
