Leo Moon Sign People

Did you feel that commanding presence that gracefully entered into the room? Although she isn’t dressed in formal clothes, she has a regal bearing and a very confident attitude. It takes a Leo moon sign person to pull that off. She can be wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and old sneakers and look as if she just stepped off of a catalog picture shoot. The hair is pulled back into a ponytail and she is wearing no makeup. It could almost make a person jealous, but she is so outgoing and enthusiastic, you are already making plans to see a show together next week. It's okay—you never had a chance anyway. Most Leo moon sign people have more charisma in their pinky finger that we have in our whole selves. Leo is ruled by the warm and glowing sun, and they spread warmth wherever they go.

Great Hosts and Proud Parents

Leo moon signs are proud people and are usually found leading whatever is happening. Leo is a fixed sign, so emotionally they do not change that easily. They have extremely romantic and demonstrative love natures. The men are the ones who hide the engagement ring in your dessert at the restaurant or announce it at the airport. Leo moons have a stubborn streak, so if they are in a relationship that isn’t living up to their lofty ideals, it will be very hard for them to break it off.

They do not like to ask for help, because they want to appear as if they have everything under control. Leo moon sign people are very proud parents. They want to show off their lovely children and beautifully decorated homes. They will never miss a school conference and are positive their progeny turned in that last assignment, no matter what the teacher says. If anyone tries to bother a family member, the Leo moon person will retaliate very quickly, because they are very protective of their loved ones. Do not forget that the Lion is Leo’s symbol. Leo moon signs love family, and often take them on all sorts of outings. They also like to entertain and have frequent parties at home. Generous to a fault, they will insist that you try every snack or entrée they prepared, and insist you take some home.

Leo Presidents in Our Times

Most people who have Leo in them have a dramatic flair, and really love to be the center of attention. They crave the spotlight and like to be admired. Now don’t forget, a less outgoing Sun sign can have a Leo moon, so that shy Piscean you know may be a lot friendlier than you realize. Think of President Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama—both Leos. No matter what people think of them politically, they both know how to win over a crowd no matter what. Disclaimer: I am using their personalities as an example for astrological clarification. If you want to complain about them, go to the political section or go on a blog. Anyway, all you need to do to get a Leo moon person to like you is to flatter them. This is not a hard thing to do. They have hearts of gold and are generally very kind to everyone. Leo moon sign people need attention and need to feel adored, but add so much to the group it’s a small price to pay.

Leo moon sign people enjoy parties.

Leo moon sign people enjoy parties.

Leo moon sign people love expensive things, and although they are not flashy, do like to live well. They thrive on excitement, since Leo is a fire sign, and are more than likely to live in or near a big city. Leo moon signs like to go to concerts, museums, art galleries, the opera, and they want to see every new movie that comes out. And they want to do it sooner rather than later, while everyone is still talking about it. They have high energy levels, even at relatively older ages. Leo moon sign people also love to dress up to go out on the town, so it is necessary to have the appropriate wardrobe and accessories. The women love jewelry and pocketbooks, but you won’t see any under dressed Leo moon men either. They also keep abreast of current events, so they are prepared to discuss the events happening around the world. They are intelligent and need to keep mentally as well as physically stimulated.

Generous, but Can Be Prima Donnas

Leo moon sign people like to play games and may enjoy the occasional trip to Las Vegas. They are lucky and often are the ones in the group to win the 50-50 or the tricky tray at the party. But being so generous, they will often share their winnings. They give to charities and will happily organize a group to obtain the goal of helping someone in need. The more wealthy ones will be on the Executive Boards of art museums and galleries, and happily play the role of Patron of the Arts.

There are times when Leo moon people can come off like prima donnas and get a tad annoying. They really cannot help it, they just love to create a sense of drama. It keeps things interesting. Try not to hold it against them, because if you tell them how you feel, they will sincerely try to improve their behavior, as they do not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable or upset.

Good Health and Sports Fans

Leo moon sign people normally have good health, probably due to that sunny disposition. Although Leo moons like to keep busy, they also need some time to relax and recharge their energy. Think of the Lion in the jungle heat, who likes to lie down and take a nap in the afternoon. Most Leo moon signs are sports fans and probably play one that they enjoy. They like to keep in good physical shape, as they care about the image they present. They will work out often at the gym, and they love to dance. Their lithe bodies reflect this care of self. You will rarely find them at home unless all their friends are gathered there to hang out. But this can often lead to the whole group going out somewhere together afterward. You will have lots of fun with your Leo moon friend. Since they are in love with love, you will enjoy the fireworks if you are involved in a love affair with one. A Leo moon sign person is someone who always knows how to lift up your spirits. Aren’t you the lucky one to have such a friend in your life?

Scorpio rising is the way others see you. This is a hard Ascendant, because others can easily be intimidated by you. It's not that you give them a reason to, but you give off a "don't bother me" vibe unless you try hard really not to. You are intense and very passionate. You exhaust all avenues when you are learning something new. You are possessive of friends and lovers. But you are very loyal to those you care for and will do almost anything for them. It takes people a long time to get to know you. But you have to let them in! Then they will see that sensitive side you have.

So you are a somewhat serious person, but can let your hair down and have fun. Having a Scorpio Ascendant puts Taurus on your marriage house, and I think a Taurus would be good for you. It is compatible with Capricorn and Scorpio. It's opposite of Scorpio but that means you want the same things as a partner, just see a different way to get there. And with the Leo Moon, definite fireworks.

Question: I am a Cancer Sun, Leo Moon, and Aquarius rising. What does that tell you?

Answer: Cancer people are generally reserved at first, but get bored easily and more congenial as you get to know them better. You have leadership ability and are a kind and nurturing person. You are moody, as the Moon is your ruler, and it passes through all 12 zodiac signs each 28 days. But you can learn to work with that. Family and close friends are very important to you, and you are a good listener. The Leo Moon rules your emotions. You need a lot of attention and expect to be treated like royalty, also you tend to be bossy in relationships. But you are generous and like to socialize. So at times, you seem gentle, but will lose your temper and can be very stubborn. Aquarius rising is the way others see you. You are somewhat of a nonconformist, both Cancer and Aquarius have their own unique way of looking at life. Plus Aquarius is another fixed sign like Leo, so you can't always have it your way. You do have a humanitarian streak and volunteer work would be a good outlet for you. You have the ability to inspire others to help if the cause is important enough to you. Cancer Sun people need time for quiet or for themselves, and Aquarius needs freedom in relationships. So you expect a lot from others, make sure you give them the same!

Question: Can you explain my Moon in Leo, Sun in Taurus, and Ascendant in Cancer Trinity?

Answer: Your Leo Moon means you are a dramatic person who loves to be the center of attention. You crave constant compliments and assurances of love in a romantic relationship. But you like nice things and are generous about sharing them. You love to host parties and are well liked. It gives you pleasure to see everyone having a good time with you. You take a lot of time on your appearance and always want to look good.

The Sun in Taurus means you need security and possessions are important to you. You are a collector. You also like nature, likely have a green thumb, and if you don't like team sports, will compete against your own personal best. Taurus doesn't care about clothes as much as a Leo Moon does, so you either dress to the nines or wear stuff until it falls off your back. Taurus people are sensual and never hesitate to jump in the water naked. Both Leo and Taurus are fixed signs, so you are stubborn and opinionated. You want to find a partner and are going to be faithful.

The Ascendant in Cancer makes it, so you are approachable and friendly, but don't give away much about yourself until you know people better. You are kind and nurturing. Family is important to you and so are close friends, you hold onto them forever. They are family to you. You are creative and a little dreamy. You have a love of beauty and all pretty things. Cancers are ambitious too, but this sort of sneaks up on people and they don't realize it until you get what you want!

Question: I am a Virgo sun, Leo moon, and Leo rising, I can’t find much Info about this combination, can you tell me anything?

Answer: Virgo sun people are witty and intelligent, usually fun to be with. You are health conscious and probably take good care of yourself. You are hardworking and practical, and others can use your advice. You are a loyal friend. Leo Moon people are warm and friendly. You love attention and nice things and will share them with others. Leo rising is how others see you. You are approachable and kindhearted, with a kind of regal air about you. You probably love clothes and always look nice and presentable. I have an article on Virgo Sun and one on Leo Moon; I will give you the URLs: Here's the Leo Moon one:

Question: I am a Gemimi sun, Leo moon, and Scorpio rising. People say that I have a complex personality. Can you put some light on the personality traits of this combination?

Answer: You seem complex because of the Scorpio rising. This ascendant is the way others see you, not necessarily the way you are once people get to know you better. You seem very serious and only speak to new people if you really have something important or interesting to say. I have Scorpio rising too, and people tell me I seem too serious, and like I don't want to be bothered at times. I really am deciding if the person is worth getting to know better, trying to size them up. That's what you are doing too! But it's not a bad thing, you are strong-willed, independent, able to read people well, as well as kind and sympathetic to those you care about.

The Gemini Sun takes you to a more light-hearted and fun place. You can be chatty, and actually a good communicator. It's normal to see contradictions in astrology charts. Gemini is an intellectual sign, so you like to keep up with all topics, and know a little bit about everything. You are a flirt! But this helps balance out some of that Scorpio seriousness, allowing you to let your guard down.

The Leo Moon is about your emotions, so when you do flirt, you usually already know you are pretty much interested in the person. Leo Moons are a bit high maintenance in relationships, you need a lot of attention and expect to be on a pedestal. But you are warm and generous. Leo and Scorpio are fixed signs, it's hard to get you to change your views. The Gemini Sun helps there, it forces you to be fair and look at issues from both sides.

I don't think it's really a complex trinity. Of course, that's all it is, this is not an interpretation of a complete astrology chart.

Question: I have a Pisces sun, Leo moon and Aries rising. What does my astrological combination tell you?

Answer: Pisces Sun people are very intuitive and charming. They get along with almost anybody and don't judge others. You are creative and likely write, sing, create art or poetry, something of that nature. You like metaphysical subjects. You are inclined to always reach out to anyone you think is unfortunate. You are spiritual or at least philosophical.

Leo Moon is the way you express your emotions. You are warm and loving, very demonstrative. You expect the same in return though and could be too demanding in a relationship. You want to be the King or Queen. But you are generous and like to entertain or have a good time going out to different affairs and venues. You want to be surrounded in luxury.

Aries rising is the way others see you. You are outgoing and impulsive. You want to be the leader. You are blunt and outspoken. You can behave a little immaturely at times, but since Aries is the first zodiac sign and Pisces the last, perhaps this trait will remain hidden. Since Aries is the Ascendant, Libra is on your marriage house. So you want to in a partnership and will be happiest when you are. You are the type that when you find someone, you want to do everything together (though with the Pisces Sun, you need some time to yourself). With 2 out of three signs of your Trinity in fire signs and Libra on the marriage house, I would recommend a Gemini or Aquarius person of interest. Also, being Pisces and having Aries rising, a Capricorn could be a good match for you.

Question: Can you explain my Sun in Cancer, Moon in Leo, Mercury and Venus in Gemini?

Answer: Yes, I can. Cancer sun people are warm and nurturing. You love family and friends who you consider family. You are creative and friendly, gentle and caring. But Cancer is a leadership sign, so people may tend to underestimate you. That would be their mistake! You have a good head for business, or can also be a psychologist, because people love to confide in you. Although you love family, this doesn't mean you are chained to the house or stove as some interpret Cancers. I am also Cancer with Mercury and Venus in Gemini.

Mercury rules how you think, and in Gemini, it's with your head, not your heart, good, because Cancers can get so involved in other people's issues they neglect themselves. You are very intelligent, and probably a great communicator. This can mean you are a good writer, or good at tech things, anything which aids good communication. You are chatty and fun.

Venus in Gemini rules your social and love life. You get bored easily (also a Cancer trait) and can have two great loves in life, or easily date two people at the same time. In love, you are never crude, and are romantic; you like to talk about your relationships and love hearts and flowery stuff. I have this Venus placement and always wrote poetry to my husband on important occasions. You love to go to concerts, restaurants, or to check out anything new in your area. You like to travel and move around. You are nervous, and this can affect your stomach.

The Moon in Leo is in a fixed sign. You want lots of attention from those you care about and expect the regal treatment from them. You always look good and make a lot of effort to do so. You are a good host and love to entertain. Your emotions are more fixed than the planets in other signs, so I like this. Once you care deeply about someone, you are great about showing your affection. You want a family someday and love children. Leo Moon people are very generous and always willing to help others.

Question: I'm not trying to be rude, but I'm skeptical of astrology. Most descriptions seem like generally vague terms that could apply to almost anyone. Is there anything you can offer to support this discipline's legitimacy?

Answer: Many people who are sceptical of astrology don't have a clear understanding of what it is. They see the vague descriptions you mention, in a newspaper or magazine, and think that's all there is to it. Those "horoscopes" have origins from WWll, and were based on Sun signs only. They were published only as a diversion for those at home who had loved ones fighting the war. Sadly, they exist to this day. Also, astrology is not new; it was considered the science before astronomy was.

Astrology is much more than what a person's Sun Sign is. A whole birth chart is cast mathematically; it takes around 45 minutes and a plethora of specialized books. Now, this info can be found on websites, but it's often wrong.

A real horoscope can be done, but the astrologer needs the person's birthday, time of birth, and the city and country where the subject was born, to get the precise latitude and longitude. Once we get started with that info, we can begin to draw the circle, called a sidereal, of the picture of the sky when the person was born. This helps to get something called an ascendant, the starting point on the left, middle part of the sidereal, or what is called the Eastern Horizon.

Then once all the zodiac signs are filled in (from a book called Dalton's Table of Houses), we go to a book of planetary tables called an Ephemeris, and can place each planet in the zodiac sign and one or more of the 12 astrology houses where it will be. Every Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are in a zodiac sign and in a house with any of 4 or 5 meanings. Also, the distance each planet is apart from the others is called an aspect, and most people have at least 15 strong ones in their charts.

Then it's time to interpret all this. I have to know what all the zodiac signs mean, what each house means, what each planet rules, and what aspects it makes to other planets. That all has to be put together and I can interpret it in about 10-12 hours. It's a lot of work, and takes years of study, books, workshops and such.

I began taking formal astrology classes with my then BF when I was about 22. An Aunt had all the books and gave them to me. It took a good year just to learn what all the symbols for zodiac signs and planets mean, what each planet stood for, and what the houses meant. I had a coworker at the time who wanted me to teach her. She was shocked when I came with a stack of textbooks and started to teach her the math formula, even though it was not hard. She said she thought it was something that could be picked up fast and decided against it. Later, she attended a few classes with us, but couldn't keep up.

So most of what you see isn't really astrology. The real birth or Natal Birth chart is very detailed. I write here on a group site, and many of the questions I get aren't very smart. People tell me where their Sun and Moon are, and think they are getting a whole horoscope. They aren't.
