Two lions know how to make each other both roar and purr. With two radiant Leo's, relationship has plenty of romantic drama. This is epic, like anything on the big screen.
The dating period is a high-visibility affair, since both will want to show off the new flame. PDA - no problem! If one lion proudly basks in attention, a pair amplifies the "look at me!" effect. The more high-spirited Leos broadcast their passions with some over-the-top affection.
Both are in love with love, and together they create moments of grand romance, sometimes involving pricey tokens of affection. They want the wow factor, with music, color, laughter and premium offerings. If it's a ride in a gondola through Venice, or a short trip to the carousel in the park, what's important is that it's a memorable (unforgettable), truly special day!
Play and an open-heart makes for spontaneous fun, like splashing in the fountain. They'll take turns performing for eachother, knowing instinctively how to shower with the right applause. Their intimate times are intense, but also full of play and laughter.
This relationship thrives as long as there is mutual adoration and respect. The notoriously big Egos clash every time one asserts dominance over the other. The bright Leo fire parches the landscape, if left unchecked, causing emotions to dry up between them. Fights are dramatic, but so is the making up! The Leo likes to flirt from time to time, just to reconfirm that they've still got it, and this could inflame jealousy. But when both believe the other is loyal, a lot of that swagger and strategic smiling can be forgiven.
This is a couple that throws super fun parties, and surprises friends with their generosity. Kids bring out their own childlike natures, and are a big source of personal pride.
Both have a deep soul need for self-expression, and can be an understanding ally. A Leo loves having a Leo cheerleader in their corner! Honesty about shortcomings leads to greater intimacy, as the proud Lion learns that it's okay to show vulnerability. I like this quote for Leo and Leo from Rumi: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Since two Leos have a double dose of ego and pride, it'll be fruitful to look at any barriers these tendencies create. Being "right" is not as important, in the end, as being loved. And Leo is the big-hearted lover of the Zodiac.
If competition crowds out the feelings of good will, this signals the beginning of the end. The royal couple needs to put their relationship first for this union to endure.
