Discover the meaning of your Moon Sign. Learn how understanding your Leo Moon will help you know what you need.

Born with the Moon in Leo, you need to find ways to express your creativity and do things that you love.

In fact, you were born with an innate need to follow your heart. It’s important you find a place in your life for plenty of fun, passion and creative self-expression. Notice what makes your heart sing. This is most likely to be your best choice.

From an early age you probably had quite a passionate nature, and big dreams for yourself. As you grow older you need to protect the child-like spirit of fun and creativity that lives inside you. Whatever you do in life you will do best when you pursue something you truly enjoy.

On an emotional level, you are likely to be warm, generous and innately confident. When you love, you love intensely. Your friends can count on you for your loyalty and support.

You may be stubborn somehow, and hate being told what to do. Once you’ve made your mind up about a person or situation it will take a lot to persuade you otherwise.

Leo is called a Fixed Fire sign. This means that your feelings are enduring and you are capable of focussing your heart on what you want. You need to follow the instinct of joy in your life.

If something fills you with excitement and enthusiasm then it’s probably good for you. If something feels inhibiting or dull then – no matter how practical it may seem – it’s probably best left alone. 

The sign of Leo is ruled by the Sun, and associated with royalty. You may have an innately regal quality to you, radiating warmth to those you feel benevolent toward, and perhaps striking out fiercely against those who have lost your favour.

You have a pronounced sense of dignity, and will expect a certain level of treatment and respect from others. You need to feel that others admire you for who you are.

You may have fairly lavish tastes, and will feel most comfortable when surrounded by people and situations you feel reflect your inner image of yourself – in some ways important and deserving the best.

Your mother may have reflected such characteristics to you, or may have brought you up to feel special and important. She may have had strong creative instincts, or perhaps taught you what it means to lead.

You need to be careful not to let this innate sense of authority become self-centredness and domination. You have an inborn pride in yourself. This can help you through life but may need to be reigned in at times.

You want to do things to the best of your ability. At its best, pride can make you aim high and follow through on your commitments. You hold high standards for yourself and others.

But if you let this inherent sense of pride take over, you may end up thinking that you are always right. Then you might develop a tendency to be overly demanding, dismissive or controlling, insisting that you always get your own way.

Others will gladly follow your lead when you remember to share the role. Don’t let pride fill you with self-importance. Instead, use it as a way to maintain elevated standards – befitting your inherent sense of self-respect.

With the Leo Moon there is often a passionate intensity that needs to be expressed. This is a dramatic and creative sign. You may find yourself drawn to experiences that allow you to pour your creativity and personal expression into them.

You will be at your best when your natural exuberance can find an outlet. You might have been drawn from an early age to anything flamboyant, creative or self-expressive including dance, drama and design.

You have a child-like sense of fun about you, and need to tap into this somehow. You might find your creativity is easily expressed working with children, or a running a business where you can see all your ideas coming into concrete form.

Whatever you do, you will find your day is more colourful when you have some kind of creative outlet. You need to find ways to express yourself in everything you do.

With the Leo Moon you are likely to be a “kid at heart”. You enjoy play, fun and spontaneity. You probably find it easy to relate to children at their level.

Spending time with children also helps open up your own creativity and sense of fun. Taking time out for fun and adventure is a kind of medicine for you. You need to make time for fun as a kind of “food for the soul”.

With the Leo Moon, love, affection and romance are also essential.  You feel at your best when passionately stoking the fires of romance. In short, you love to love and need to feel needed.

You also need plenty of reassurance and affection. To feel connected with another you need feedback, and it’s important you both look for ways to keep your romantic life alive.

As a child you may have needed lots of reassurance. As an adult, you need the same – not from a place of insecurity but more from a place of mutual care. 

You need to form relationships with people who will shower you with affection and make time for fun. It is very important you find a partner who is demonstrative, and pays attention to your emotional needs.

In essence, Leo is a sensitive and impressionable sign. You can be easily hurt when you don’t get the recognition or respect you feel you deserve. You need approval and feedback from others to know how you are doing. So it is important you surround yourself with those who are willing to share

Leo Moon is also a sign of leadership. You may feel that you are born to lead or organize others. Thus, you do best when you have a degree of control in situations. You need to take charge in some ways. Organizing events or people is a great way to achieve this.

You have natural executive and leadership qualities that inspire others to follow you. When you lead from a place of confidence and fun, others will happily come along.

You also have a gift for social situations, and instinctively know how to bring the fun and flair into any situation. You need parties, excursions and social events to feel alive.

Even if other influences in your chart make you more shy or retiring, with the Leo Moon you need to allow yourself to enjoy life. The more fun you have the more love you express. It’s as simple and as necessary as that.

When you learn how to channel your creativity and passion you will recognize your inherent gifts. Then, through understanding that others are just as “special” as you, you will keep things in perspective, your heart in the right place and a feeling of abundance flowing through your life.


“You and I are created for transcendence, laughter, caring. God deliberately did not make the world perfect, for God is looking for you and me to be fellow workers with God” – Archbishop Desmund Tutu, Moon in Leo
