Leo is ruled by the Sun and possesses a beautiful and thick mane that frames his face, which looks like the Sun. As a lion, he loves to nap on a sunny, hot day. Afterward, you can likely catch him grooming himself as he prepares for his next hunt. He’s brave, yet playful; domineering, but warm; controlling, yet chivalrous, and generous, but sometimes seemingly vain. He knows who he is and it’s no fault of his own if others simply don’t see it that way too.

Leo the Lion is the king of the jungle. Loyal and protective, this sign truly radiates royalty. Regal, popular, and charismatic, he still retains his profound, lion heart. He can be very intimidating, of course! He must if he’s to continue to be the king. His reputation means a great deal to him and therefore, he must stand strong among his enemies. It is his biggest drive and his birthright to live up to his noticeably proud name.

Born between July 23rd to August 22nd

Leo is happy and home with this placement because Leo’s planet is the Sun. Motivated, passionate, and confident, these kitties are self-expressive! Never holding their rough tongues, they can sometimes appear a bit full of themselves if left unchecked due to pride. They don’t usually mean to sound rude or arrogant, but they know that how others perceive them isn’t their fault, so they don’t allow it to dampen their glow. What they may fail to really allow to shine through them, however, is their big, warm heart. Incredibly cautious about with whom they should share it, knowing their heart’s truth is a rare experience.

This is a sun sign placement that has haters, sure, but there are many who absolutely love how much fun they are. It’s always their house where their group goes for a party. Sometimes, a Leo can get a reputation as a hedonist or a party animal, but they’re much more multi-faceted. They’re wildly creative and expressive individuals. Naturally, they leave their dramatic flair wherever they go and this often includes something like organized existential angst. Filled with spirit and will, they know which direction to go to fulfill their personal dreams.

There is something oddly noble, courageous, and extremely bold about a Leo. One moment, they lead others to wonder how they can be so self-righteous and the next, they may make a selfless and authentic grand gesture of loving kindness to whomever is in need.

Leo Sun hates being told what to do and almost always assumes to be right. Graceful, yet fiery, they are great at encouraging others, however. This healthy, sometimes inflated sense of self usually comes from a hidden place of deep insecurities. Perhaps they appear to need a spotlight to be happy and whole, but the truth is that they sometimes need to hear the encouragement they so freely give to others too. When it’s time to shine, Leo, you’ll instinctively know.

FAMOUS LEO SUN SIGNS: Jennifer Lopez, Barrack Obama, Sandra Bullock, Mila Kunis, Carl Jung, Ben Affleck, Daniel Radcliffe, Madonna, Demi Lovato, Charlize Theron, Amy Adams, Whitney Houston, Anna Kendrick, Halle Berry, Lucille Ball, Kate Beckinsale, Lisa Kudrow, Dua Lipa, Cher Lloyd, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Hemsworth, Steve Carell, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This placement feels an incredibly wide range of emotions. To put a Leo Moon into perspective, know that Leo naturally rules the Sun, which symbolizes logic. The Moon is a symbol of emotion and is the sun’s opposite. With this particular Leo placement with the Moon, these individuals tend to attempt to over-rationalize all of their emotions. If they can’t seem to figure it out all the time, it could result in suppressing their emotions instead. They expend more energy when they feel stifled and become suddenly exuberant when they’re comfortable enough to open up. As if a brand new person has appeared, their day will become brighter when they can express themselves fully.

Leo Moon demands respect and is loyal, fierce, and highly supportive of friends. With an all-or-nothing attitude, they’re either the most loving type of person or the most distant and uneasily obtained. Preferring partners who demonstrate their feelings for them, they do need a large amount of affection and reassurance to feel connected. These big, warm cats are kids at heart. They get along with children easily, as they’re in tune with their pure nature. Inherently, they know just how to communicate with them effectively.

Although Leo Moon likely doesn’t discover this until adulthood, they’re naturally born leaders. They dream vibrantly and may often feel they have a purpose to do something big in life and try at every given opportunity. When they feel they’re falling short, they have an enormous amount of pride, which provokes them to go about things their own way. This is sometimes out of a need for approval. A bad day for them is when they feel they’re not in control, which they respond to demandingly and become dismissive of another’s ideas or needs. On a good day, they’re fun, passionate, and impressively creative, they approach life with humor and confidence!

FAMOUS Leo Moons: Marilyn Manson, Eva Mendes, Bruno Mars, Chelsea Handler, Shia Labeouf, Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, David Bowie, Lana Del Rey, Mahatma Gandhi, Helena Bonham Carter, Liam Hemsworth, Megan Fox, Clint Eastwood, Amanda Seyfried, Paul McCartney, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Hanks, and Oscar Wilde.

Those who are Rising Leo have the Sun as their astrological chart ruler!

Leo Rising has the bright and shiny syndrome. They’re unlikely to shy away from the spotlight, but they absolutely hate criticism. On their best days, they are confident, giving, kind, and entertaining. If not creatively expressing themselves as an extension of their identity, they can be known for dramatic displays that naturally call for attention. Friendly, fun, and upbeat, they can light up a room with their glowing, warm smiles. Frequently realizing they’ve stuck their foot in their mouths, and barely pausing to think first, these stubborn creatures say what they mean and mean what they say.

They will go leaps and bounds to show the loved ones they care, by buying extravagant gifts or throwing huge parties. These people are inspiring and fiery and may have a habit of exaggerating the details of their lives. Having an insatiable lust for life, they’re busy most days they live. To some, they seem selfish or immature, but their enthusiasm can be contagious! Seemingly forever young, their child-like nature means they’re actually great with children too.

The most noticeable common physical feature of Leo Rising is their thick hair. They may also have freckles, and a light or reddish complexion. They may have expensive taste and will usually wear designer or at least name-brand items. Often found wearing brightly colored clothing, they’re sometimes flashy and extravagant.

Famous Leo Rising: Johnny Depp, Marilyn Monroe, George Bush, Meryl Streep, Donald Trump, Tina Turner, Al Pacino, Jessica Lange, Prince Charles, Jennifer Lopez, Sting, Jack Nicholson, Eva Green, Frida Kahlo, Alfred Hitchcock, Tina Fey, Luciano Pavarotti, Rita Ora, Andy Warhol, Michelle Williams, and Camilla Parker Bowles.
