This profile indicates personality traits you will have if the zodiac sign of Leo is prominent, but not necessarily your Sun sign, in your birth chart. If Leo is your ascendant or Moon sign or if the Sun is prominent these characteristics are likely to show.

The positions of, and relationships between, the planets in your birth chart will show the predispositions you have and how best to use them successfully in life in the world.

Don't know your Ascendant? Don't know your Moon sign? - and how they interact with the Sun and all the other planets and points in your birth chart? A consultation will give you all of this and many find that it gives them a tremendous boost in their search for meaning and fulfilment in their lives and in their relationships. You can have a consultation by telephone from anywhere in the world, or face to face in Minehead, Somerset (UK), recorded for you to keep.

Leo Zodiac Sign - Basics:

Element: Fire, Quality: Fixed, Ruler: the Sun.

Characteristic traits

Leo radiates warmth, light and goodwill like the Sun which rules it - and likes it if you notice it doing so! Leo at its best is confident and decisive, has an overall perspective on life and can bring out the best in others.


For Leo, lack of obvious appreciation by others can lead to vanity and egotistical behaviour. A poor self-image is then covered up with a veneer of confident self-reliance, both of which serve to make empathy with others impossible.

A word of advice

Love yourself with all your faults (yes, you do have some!), observe yourself with compassion, then you won't depend on what others feel about you and will have more to give. Then you will get the appreciation you long for.


As a Leo your ideal mate bends the knee before your majesty and won't probe too deeply beneath those purple robes. What actually happens is that if you over-inflate a pin is applied, which is a mercy but may feel devastating. You may attract partners with flair for the details of practical living, which is just as well if frustrating. See Leo Man or Leo Woman for hints about your Leo partner

Leo Star Sign - a Deeper Look

Leo emphasised in your birth chart indicates your task is to be as the Sun in the solar system. Consider what the Sun does. It holds everything in place with its magnetism and gravity. It gives out warmth and light to all. It is reliable - it rises in the morning and sets in the evening. Everything benefits from its radiance. Leos, at their best, radiate warmth wherever they go, in such a way as to enhance the lives of those with whom they associate. This they do simply by being themselves rather than as the result of a conscious intention. The reputation that Leos have for being self-centred or egotistical has some reason for its existence, but at their best, Leos know that the appreciation of others is worthless unless it is a response to a genuine warmth exuding from them.

Following the sign of Cancer in the zodiac, Leo signifies the move away from home and family to be an individual in one's own right. This could be an issue for you if your birth chart has any planets in Cancer, as when you are affirming your right to live your own life, you may feel the retrogressive pull of family responsibilities (real or imagined), and perhaps actual pressure may be applied by your family of origin which may not like anyone stepping out of line. Compatibility in love relationships may be an issue here.

However, provided the break is made and one's individuality is allowed to shine, Leos are often drawn towards positions of responsibility as, being like the Sun at the centre of things, they are able to have a good overall picture.

Your chart as a whole will provide clues as to what might stand in the way of the Leo quest. For instance, many planets in earth signs (like Virgo) might indicate that you feel held back by mundane matters when what you really want to do is to be fired with imagination and lead. As already indicated, planets in Cancer could also be an issue.
