The New Moon in your romantic zone on December 7th will bring new love into your life. Take care to nurture this tenderly and allow some space for it to properly develop. As a Leo you may want to take charge but the lesson here is that love grows at its own pace and cannot be forced.
When it comes to serious partnerships things change for Leo. Gone is the slew of suitors and now it's time to choose. You really need a person who is a bit quirky and can keep you on your back foot.

The Sun enters your partnership zone on January 21st to February 19th and this is a good time for your marriage or serious relationship. You have to focus on them and not you.

On the other hand if you are the one stamping your foot, and demanding more from your partner than they can honestly provide, it can be the beginning of a period where you have to accept that everyone is not perfect least of all you. If your partner does hang around and stays after any outbursts then you know they are truly the one for you.

Often the trick is knowing who is your type or who you want before you start.
Avoid making plans to marry or break up during the Venus retrograde time from October 5th to November 16th which is the tough period this year and it affects all signs. During this time frame you cannot make good decisions about romance and it will be unsettled for weeks afterward if you do. To have a clean start or break wait until November 16th before taking any action.
Your marriage may hit a slow patch as Uranus turns direction in the week of August 7th and things may even come to a complete stop. Patience is needed now as there may be a few long weeks which can signal a slow down in your feelings for each other. This is a time to pursue other activities that are done alone and without your partner. You will keep the relationship going but find new things to share when you do get back together. This could be a weekend away on your own or with friends without your spouse.
Keeping love alive after many years can be draining so some separate time will be good. It is a complicated situation for romance and love but it works well for Leos who are self-centered to be alone for a while. The Leo and Aquarius are the self and another axis for Leos underlies this need for freedom both from your partner and by him or her.
Do not worry about your lover going off it is just a cycle of life which can work out well in the end. You deserve to be with someone who adores you and it is that simple. If your partner is not measuring up it may be time to let them go.
