Sorry Miss Turner, sometimes love has got everything to do with it.
In his 1993 “Beauty and the Beast” inspired banger “I Would Do Anything For Love,” Meatloaf muses that there’s only a scant few things he wouldn’t risk for romance. With the spirit of the song as guide, we’re naming the zodiac sign that ain’t afraid to go big for the promise of not going home alone.
All zodiac signs have their merits when it comes to the expression of love; Scorpios will keep your secrets, help you cover up your crimes and tattoo your nick name on their knee with a melted toothbrush and a quilting needle, Pisces will immortalize you in song and watercolor, air signs will talk you out of a parking ticket and/or leaving them, practical earth signs like Capricorn will add you to their health insurance plan while fire folk like Aries will steal you flowers from a graveyard.
Yet, there can only be one sign to rule them all.
The word risk comes from the Italian riscare meaning to “run into danger,” and with both a hero complex and arraging heart on, Leos are primed to risk it all, roll the dice and shoot their shot when it comes to love. Read on to learn more.
Leo is a grand, gilded mammal; oxygenated by challenge, intrigued by anyone that isn’t immediately obsessed with them, and shameless in their pursuit, Leos are more inclined than any other sign to make moves, stay the course, suffer, beg and/or break the law in the name, neigh roar, of love.
Leo Meghan Markle continues to prove the undaunted nature of her sign by weathering the slings, arrows, and ire of the world at large in order to love who she loves.
Ruled by the sun, Leos embody its warmth, power and consumptive properties. Everything is bigger and brighter as a result of their application of this solar quality, relationships and romantic feelings most especially.
Leos are not content to wallow or wist when it comes to love rather they are driven to take action. As fixed fire they are akin to a controlled burn, able to spark, sustain and speak to tenderness.
Consequently, some of the great romantics of the ages have been lions, including Napoleon, James Baldwin, PB Shelly, Lord Tennyson, Zelda Fitzgerald, James Cameron, Emily Brontë and Madonna.

Rulers of the fifth house of passion, pleasure and play, creativity and copulation, Leo wants to roll around in the grass, pet and be petted, dance naked, shake their mane in the sunshine and gently but purposefully maul the object of their affection.
Love is a kind of art to the lion pride and they are more than willing to color outside of the lines and stretch the canvas to accommodate crazy.
They love loud, unafraid of an audience and undeterred by indifference. While they demand worship, they are more than willing to light the candles and make the offering to the altar of their beloved.
Case in point, lion Ben Affleck placing advertisements in Variety Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter to list his favorite things about Jennifer Lopez while she was still married to Chris Judd. Say what you will, that s–t WORKED.
Heroism figures prominently in the Leo archetype and the love of the lion extends to strangers and noble causes as well as intimates.
These are the first in to battle, leave no man behind, take a bullet and the side of the underdog types. We are all better for having loved or been loved by lions who teach us that when it comes to showing you care, showing off, showing out and showing up for the firing squad, real or metaphorical, is always worth the risk.
