Venus in Leo is nonstop acts, so remember to take intermissions

When Venus struts through scene-stealing Leo, you’ll want attention in megadoses. But when friends, family and lovers can’t give it, look out! Tantrums can get reality-show ugly. Plus, who is going to play the role of the cheering supporter?

The big challenge this summer is remembering that love is a two-way street. Nothing wrong with wanting to be cherished and adored, but if you treat your date like the on-demand president of your personal fan club, dynamics could take a nasty turn. Remember to step back and share the limelight. Helping others shine is equally rewarding.
