The Basics

Venus is all about your style of expressing love and your attitude towards money, things of value, and art.

Leo symbolizes confidence, creativity, passion, and leadership, as well as a love for attention and recognition.

You are honest, frank, attractive, kind, compassionate, and fun-loving, with a charming personality.

Your romantic style is bold and dramatic. You have a larger-than-life personality, and without doing anything you are able to attract warm feelings from those around you. You express your affection extravagantly and in creative ways, such as writing love letters or serenading your partner. You're a generous partner, and enjoy spoiling your significant other with lavish gifts and grand gestures.

You're proud of your romantic conquests, and want to show off your partner to the world. You seek the Hero, the Prince or Princess, someone you can idolize and adore, someone you have great pride in, or someone who can sweep you off your feet.  You enjoy the attention that comes with being in love, and become disheartened if you feel that your partner isn't giving you enough admiration or attention.

As much as Venus in Leo enjoys meeting new people (and harmlessly flirting with them sometimes), this sign is one of the most loyal in the zodiac.  Being a "fixed" Sign, you keep your commitments, especially in matters of the heart.

As with anyone with Leo placements, you enjoy being the center of attention - a need to feel SPECIAL, and depending on your maturity, may become upset if you feel that your partner is stealing your spotlight. Hopefully, you're willing to share the stage, and enjoy performing or creating art with your partner.

You're a confident person, and you want your love life to reflect that, but you are prone to jealousy.  Others playing games designed to test you will simply make you pull away.

You need to be admired for your inner and outer beauty. Vanity and becoming a show-off are possible. It would be best to watch a tendency to be preoccupied with your physical appearance when you should be developing your inner potential.

Your preference for Art:

If your Venus is in Leo, you're drawn to art that is bold, or vibrantly colored, and as dramatic as you. Pop or street art are appealing. You also enjoy performing arts, such as theater or dance, and may have a talent for creating art yourself.

You want your art to reflect your larger-than-life personality, and are drawn to pieces that are dramatic and one-of-a-kind.

Here are some artists whose works might align with your Venus in Leo tastes:

  1. Frida Kahlo - A Mexican artist known for her many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Kahlo's deeply personal and dramatic works, filled with vibrant colors, might appeal to your Leo sensibilities.

  2. Michelangelo - One of the most famous artists of the Italian Renaissance, Michelangelo's grand sculptures and paintings, such as the Sistine Chapel ceiling, could resonate with your love for drama and grandeur.

  3. Jean-Michel Basquiat - An American artist of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent, Basquiat gained fame with his graffiti and neo-expressionist paintings. His work, characterized by intense, raw imagery often against bold-colored backgrounds, might captivate your Venus in Leo love for bold and individualistic art.

  4. Georgia O'Keeffe - Known as the "Mother of American modernism," O'Keeffe's dramatic and bold use of colors in her large-format flower paintings and landscapes could appeal to your Leo penchant for grand, vibrant art.

  5. Jackson Pollock - An influential American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement, Pollock was well-known for his unique style of drip painting. His bold, dramatic approach might resonate with your Venus in Leo preferences.

  6. Salvador Dalí - A Spanish surrealist known for his striking and bizarre images in his work, Dalí’s exploration of subconscious symbolism might intrigue your Leo love for drama and grandeur. His iconic melting clocks in "The Persistence of Memory" are a good example of his bold and unique style.

  7. Banksy - An anonymous England-based street artist, Banksy's satirical and subversive street art often strikes a chord with viewers. His bold and controversial pieces might resonate with your Venus in Leo appreciation for strong statements and individuality.

  8. Damien Hirst - An English artist, entrepreneur, and art collector, Hirst is known for his installations, sculptures, and paintings. His daring and often controversial work, like the diamond encrusted skull titled "For the Love of God", could appeal to your taste for the dramatic and the grand.

  9. Yayoi Kusama - A Japanese contemporary artist, Kusama is known for her immersive installations that use polka dots and mirrors to create infinite spaces. Her bold use of color and the dramatic scale of her works might captivate your Leo love for the extraordinary.
