Astrological Signs: Leo and the Moon Signs

Carol finds astrology fascinating and spends her free time researching and writing about it for her astrology blog.

When coupled with different moon signs, the Leo qualities are quite different.

When coupled with different moon signs, the Leo qualities are quite different.

The Astrological Sign of Leo

The astrological sign Leo is ruled by the sun, our most important heavenly body. We could not survive without sunshine to light up our day and warm our bodies. Leo people are generally warm of heart, kind to those less fortunate, and make good and caring friends. You Leo people have strong egos and sometimes feel you are the center of everyone's universe. You are a leader and an organizer, and people look up to you for making important decisions.

As a fire sign, you are full of enthusiasm, drive, and energy. You have just a few negative qualities—the main one being that you think your ideas are always the best. Well, maybe they are! You enjoy beautiful clothes and enjoy staying in good shape, and it is of utmost importance that you always make a good impression.

When coupled with different moon signs, the Leo qualities are quite different.

The zodiac sign represents your core personality, and the moon sign represents your emotions—how you react to life's many challenges, your food tastes, who you will be attracted to, and even the type of clothes you enjoy wearing. Use this moon sign calculator to find out your moon sign.

Leo sun sign birth dates fall from July 23rd through August 21st.

Leo With an Aries Moon Sign

This combination of the zodiac sign of Leo with an Aries moon sign creates a person with intense emotions and drive surpassed by none. Fear is not a word in your vocabulary. Whatever you do, it is always with 100 percent of your being. You attack problems with such strength that you can win on your conviction alone. You have to watch your temper as it can flare up at a moment's notice. You protect your honor and those you care about with every fiber of your being. You are dynamic in all areas of your life and always enjoy a new adventure. If you want something, you will find a way to get it. In business, you are shrewd but always fair. You find yourself with many impulsive moments but will listen to others' ideas and then do what you want. In love, you are often attracted to someone on the quiet side, which often helps offset your impulsiveness.

Leo With a Taurus Moon Sign

The Taurus moon sign adds to the already strong Leo personality. Though you are very energetic, you still come in second to Leos with an Aries moon sign. You are able to look at the total picture but still are careful to pay attention to details. Wrong or right, you always have strong convictions about your ideas. You are honest in all of your dealings in business and your personal life. As an excellent manager, you always take care of all loose ends and rarely leave anything to chance. You are loving and caring with your family and all those that you love. As a Leo with a Taurus moon sign, you expect total devotion from friends and family. Sometimes you are so positive about what you want and feel so much passion that you need to stand back and evaluate the situation. In love, you are attracted to a loyal and caring person who wants to take care of you.

Leo With a Gemini Moon Sign

You are a person of action and have an idea for everything. You are often the life of the party, and in business, people listen to you, placing great value on your solutions. Your confidence and charm win you many battles. Your appearance is very important to you, and you also like to be the center of attention. Your attitude about life is "fake it until you make it," making it your motto for success. Most of the time, you are full of wonderful ideas and are extremely creative, but you can also be a bundle of nerves when things are not falling into place. Finding ways to relax is your biggest challenge, and a little yoga or meditating might be in order. As the life of the party, you always surround yourself with interesting people. Your emotions can run hot and cold, and you get over disappointments easily. In love, you are attracted to someone who has lots of friends and is successful in business.

Leo With a Cancer Moon Sign

The sometimes moody Cancer moon sign combined with Leo tends to tone down the outgoing and confident Leo. This Leo is far more introspective than other moon sign combinations. You love to entertain in your home and also enjoy a wide variety of friends. Your feelings can be hurt easily, so you need to toughen up a bit in that department. Friends share many confidences as they trust you and also know you are sensitive to their feelings. Generally, you are an excellent listener offering good advice. Being a realist, you have a lot of common sense. and people seem to think you really have it together. You find great solace in your home when the world feels unfair and things are not going well. In love, you are very sentimental and lavish a lot of affection on the person you care about.

Leo With a Leo Moon Sign

Double everything with this strong combination of the zodiac sign of Leo and moon sign. Success is your favorite word, and you achieve it often. You are full of energy and vitality and seemingly always in a good mood. Underneath this cheery facade, there could be a degree of ruthlessness and sometimes impatience with other people's weaknesses. In astrology, you are dubbed as a leader and can drive a hard bargain with intense shrewdness. You often trust your instinct and forge ahead. Examining and looking at all the details is not your thing. You love to be admired for your appearance, your ability to achieve things, and your financial success in life. You look for someone with similar values in life as long as they are willing to play a more subservient role.

Leo With a Virgo Moon Sign

These two signs together create a person almost totally opposite in values and emotions. Leo is a warm and dynamic personality, and coupled with the cool and cautious Virgo moon, the personality undergoes some changes. The Virgo moon sign is often in a state of analyzing situations. The morals of the Virgo moon are very strong, and if the Leo sun sign is added, they may waver a bit. You often have great expectations of others to follow and believe in your strong beliefs. You love receiving attention and often need the validation of others to feel good about yourself. However, never underestimate your charm, which you can turn on at will. Staying healthy and fit is a top priority with this moon sign position. Sometimes you border on being a hypochondriac. In love, you are attracted to someone who showers you with love and affection and, of course, a lot of praise.

Leo With a Libra Moon Sign

If we team you Leos up with a Libra moon sign, you are romantic, idealistic and the life of the party. You have a warm heart and are a true sentimentalist. A strong sense of honor and integrity is part of your makeup. Teaming the zodiac sign of Leo with a Libra moon creates a person who cares what other people think of them. You are a truly serious people pleaser. People look to you for your opinion as they know whatever you say has been well thought out. You love the arts and enjoy going to the theater. and love dressing for the occasion-just searching for compliments. Though you have a sentimental side, sometimes you can turn off that emotional button at will. If you get your feelings hurt, you can clam up and be depressed for a long time. In love you look for someone who cares about appearances and staying in good shape; and one who loves an active social life.

Leo With a Scorpio Moon Sign

With the combination of these two signs, combustion could occur at any given moment. You are dynamic and powerful in many ways. The challenge of a good debate is something you relish and dig into with great passion. Once a thought hits your mind, it is often on your tongue. You need to learn control over your sometimes volatile emotions. Your natural magnetic personality makes you a favorite with your friends and acquaintances. You tend to be biased in many situations and are rarely detached about what is important to you. You are one who almost always reacts quickly and takes quick action. Shrewd in business dealings, but you are also very honest and fair. In romance—believe it or not—you like someone who is reserved but also extremely intelligent. You don't want anyone taking that center stage you own.

Leo With a Sagittarius Moon Sign

Excitement is the keyword for this combination of Leo with a Sagittarius moon sign. You love adventure, travel, and change. Always looking for that next mountain to climb to add another adventure under your belt. You charm everyone with your vibrant personality and have a way of making people feel important. Settling down to a job, a relationship. or even a house for very long is difficult for you because of your restless personality. In astrology, you are known for your honesty and for saying what is on your mind. Sometimes you lack tact and tend to blurt out exactly how you feel. If marriage is your choice, you will expect a lot of freedom to do what you want. Being tied down is not easy for this combination of sun and moon signs.

Leo With a Capricorn Moon Sign

You have a strong sense of purpose in life. You know what you expect from your journey in life, and you always find a way to get what you desire. You are intelligent and quick. Not as social as some of the other moon signs with Leo, but you enjoy socializing with your closest friends for quiet evenings. You value your reputation and are always aware of how people see you. It is not part of your personality to admit to any weakness. A big challenge for Leos with Capricorn moon signs is to not let yourself get into a depression when things are not going well. You are reliable and resourceful and rarely bored. You like the good things in life and have great pride over your acquired possessions. In love, you are attracted to someone practical and not demanding.

Leo With an Aquarius Moon Sign

These two signs are opposite on the Astrology wheel. Both of these signs are outgoing and make for a nice personality that is both interesting and attractive. You are generous, warm, caring, and interested in other people in your life. Your outgoing personality and quick mind would do well in the public eye and dealing with many types of people. You are philosophical about life and always feel that things happen for a reason. You are rarely down for long and can rationalize your way out of stressful situations. Sticking with projects is one of your downfalls; you often jump from one thing to the next before completion. Staying focused is your biggest challenge. In your romantic life, you seek someone who enjoys lots of activities and trying new things.

Leo With a Pisces Moon Sign

The Leo sun sign has a challenge with the Pisces moon sign. The outgoing Leo is tamed quite a bit and far more introspective than Leos with other moon signs. You are tuned in to people and can often be very understanding of their problems and issues. You have a sympathetic ear that makes you very popular and sought out. Never cool and aloof, you are always in the hub of intense conversations, generously adding your opinion. You appear to be outgoing and aggressive at times, but inside you are warm, thoughtful, and possess a romantic streak. Your high personal ideals keep you striving for all your goals. In love, you look for someone with a romantic spirit and a playful attitude.

But I would've added that despite our warm nature, we can also incinerate everything like the Sun.

ThePaganSun on November 03, 2017:

Leo Sun, Taurus Moon, Virgo Rising here...

Most of this was fairly accurate especially that we enjoy sports and have tempers.

Kyneberlia on June 14, 2017:

You can delete my previous comment, since I forgot to make the time PM. I am Pisces....thanks

Kyneberlia on June 14, 2017:

Your calculator shows me as Aquarius moon sign, rather than Pisces, which I got from another calculator. Aquarius is also very like me, so I decided to look at the others...only Taurus moon sign is similar, but still not as close as Aquarius and/or Pisces. Amazed at the accuracy.

Kyneberlia on June 14, 2017:

Leo with a Pisces moon sign. This is me personified. I always wondered why I was more reserve than the usual Leo. Thanks for writing this article.
