When a planet is in the element that it rules that energy is more likely fulfill its role. That is the case with Sun in Leo.
The expression of this sunlight through Leo is fixed fired. Leo is determined, consistent, proud and active – when a Leo sets their heart on a goal – they will be very consistent and determined to complete that goal. This can be good and not so good – when someone is fixed on something they can hold on for far too long past the expiration date and burn themselves out.
If there is not enough activity to hold their attention they could get bored – and move on to something else to fix their attention on.
So, a Leo would best be suited to a goal that has some creativity to it – that has something that can really hold their attention in which they can shine and go after it. This is the projective quality of the masculine fire – the energy will be expressed outwardly – just like the Sun itself.
Now, when you look at all the other planets, you will see that they all have a duality to them – a masculine and feminine quality. The Sun (and the Moon) are not dual in its intrinsic nature – The Sun is always masculine and therefore projective and the Moon is always feminine and therefore reflective—it’s a beautiful dance between the natural expression of the Sun and the Moon.
All the planets bow to the Sun – this is why the Sun represents royalty. There is a noble quality to the Sun in Leo.
During the summer months, the Sun is shining its brightest. The sun is seen by all and there is this playful and lazy quality we express during the summer months. We lay out in the sun, we go to the beach or the pool or run through the sprinklers – and when we are young – we love staying up late because we don’t have to get up early in the morning.
Just like Aries, Leo wants the freedom to express oneself – and to form their own opinions and be independent. They are accused of being selfish and egotistical. The Sun isn’t ego – Mars is ego; the Sun is the soul –
The difference between Aries and Leo is that Leo wants to belong more – they want to maintain their individual status and yet they want to belong — so you might see a Leo showing off something of importance – to belong. They might try to steal the show – not because they want to steal your light – because they are leaders and want to step in to show you how it’s done.
Leo wants more commitment and not lose their royal status, so to speak.
The lesson for Leo is to learn to let others shine their light. Um, that’s what we’re here to do and Leo might forget that part – not on purpose – they’re just busy shining on – with extreme glory. This can create jealousy – right Scorpio?
Encourage people to shine their light – no one needs to be center stage all the time. That only leads to burn out and possible isolation.
What happens when the Sun shines too brightly? It blinds us –
Leos don’t always need to lead other people – as much as they need to lead themselves. They are here to be courageous and confident and to fulfill their purpose in this life – in a way that honors their own light and other’s light. It, then, becomes a win-win situation.
Sun in Leo is “I Will” — and no doubt, you will.
