Moon in Aries
This combination presents as a dynamic and strong individual. Though courageous even to the point of recklessness, there is no question of your enthusiasm or commitment to a cause providing it is interesting enough to deserve it. The Moon in Aries gives a resilience not often seen in other Leos who can see failures or setbacks as a wound to their pride. Instead of lashing out or wandering off to lick your wounds, you get in there to set things to right. There is a danger of being a little too aggressive or defensive with this approach. Take the time to acknowledge and reflect on the situation and your feelings as quick action could also be a form of denial. You do not want to undo all the hard work that has gone into building your image and it be destroyed by rash behaviour. You like being a leader and taking responsibility, so do the same emotionally and with gentle assertiveness. You have a great deal of good common sense and by curbing your temper and maintaining control of yourself you can mature beautifully into a respected, proactive person.
Moon in Taurus
You are quite conservative as you have a traditional view of life. You have strong values and are highly practical but you do tend to be very rigid in your opinions and will defend yourself emphatically even when your judgement is flawed. There is no doubt you are gifted with business savvy and a “can-do” attitude which means you get things done. It can result in the admiration and devotion you crave, especially from loved ones. However you need to learn to be a little more objective, particularly about yourself. When questioned or given a different point of view you can be quite belligerent as to why you are right despite evidence to the contrary. You need to realise that your self confidence and personal security are not being undermined or threatened. Do not verbally lash out as you may say things you will later regret and even lose respect from your peers. You are kind and well-meaning and people know this. Do not let a difference of opinion spoil that. Take it on board and try to learn to adjust.
Moon in Gemini
Here is an individual who likes to keep busy or at least mentally. You have a healthy blend of Leo vitality and Gemini quickness and intelligence so you are almost always full of ideas that will attract the admiration of those in your sphere of influence. Though you are not mentally lazy, the thought of hard work or physical labour does not interest you in the slightest. However, too much mental stimulation can increase the nervous energy. So it would not hurt to find some physical activity to deploy this energy before it works against you, disrupting sleep or making you impatient and restless with your endeavours. This will help you focus on the task at hand as you are easily distracted by the next best thing or idea. You are very entertaining and a great conversationalist but Leo is out to impress and wants to show off achievements. Your Leo Sun can help ground your sometimes insatiable need to do everything at once and give some stability to prioritise your tasks.
Moon in Cancer
Both the Sun and the Moon are happy with this placement as they are rulers of these signs, though it is not always smooth sailing. At the very best of times you present yourself as a well rounded individual with a strong sense of family who has the respect of your circle of friends because of your warmth, empathy and integrity. However, the lion will come out with such ferocity if crossed or if your natural superiority is challenged in any way. You do like to make a good impression and are generally good company so try not to let any niggling self doubts get in the way as you are prone to worry about what others may think of you. That is none of your business and should not be the cause of any anxiety or defensive behaviour. You are seen as a nurturing person and many confide in you as you can be depended not to disclose personal secrets and offer sound advice. You may need to let go of your pride when feeling vulnerable and also share your insecurities with a reliable friend. Do not be afraid to show your human side rather than that outer shell and allow others to see when you may need help.
Moon in Leo
Wow! A double dose of Leo can be an exciting thing indeed. This is an immensely high achieving combination as you are ambitious, outgoing, great company, vital and desire the privileges and trappings that come with success. However, you can ride roughshod over everyone to get it. There are tendencies to be dominating, even intimidating and snobbishly superior to undermine the confidence of an opponent. Self confidence is not lacking by any means, but too much can lead to self-centredness which can be interpreted as pride, vanity and arrogance. These can be very unappealing qualities and Leo does not want to be seen as unattractive. Therefore these traits need to be recognised and controlled before they dominate your personality. There is nothing wrong with being proud and wanting to make a good impression. It is another when it is your driving force. Learn to step back and share some of the spotlight and appreciate others’ qualities and achievements in the same manner you expect yours to be admired.
Moon in Virgo
The practicality of Virgo mixed with the natural authoritarian stance of Leo can make you an appealing boss. You know how to prioritise, delegate and people know exactly where they stand with you. Being honest and kind-hearted also helps. You are naturally charming and polite which wins allies and you take pride in your work though you do need to be told this as you want the attention and praise this brings you. This could be to boost your self-confidence which can be tested by Moon in Virgo. There is a danger of being too critical of others as you do have strong opinions and an exacting nature which can lead you to blister someone’s ear if your expectations are not met. Do take care with that sharp tongue of yours and learn to be more tactful. You are not naturally diplomatic but constructive criticism will win you more kudos and respect. Try to ease up on yourself too as you do tend to be self-effacing and overly self-critical as you set higher standards for yourself.
Moon in Libra
The Sun in Leo can give a bit of backbone to the sometimes indecisive and needy nature of Moon in Libra. This placement gives you an alluring quality that can make you desirable to the opposite sex. Adding to your innate charm and relaxed demeanour is your kindness and understanding which makes you a great listener and more tolerant of others than most Leos. You have a strong sense of fairness though can get a little sulky if things to do not go your way. However, you are capable of well-considered opinions which earn you respect and this also shows you can be great with business dealings. The volatility of Leo is dampened by Libra so you can detach your emotional self from a scenario or crisis to maintain both internal balance and outer harmony. Therefore you can step in, take charge and act independently from your emotions and keep the peace at the same time. That is a gift.
Moon in Scorpio
Very intense emotions are experiences with this placement and mixed with Leo’s vitality and presence, this can make you a force to be reckoned with. The fixity of both signs can make you very ardent in defending your beliefs as you take issues very personally. This can lead you to having a rant and rave to all hours even though your point has been made. There is a propensity towards jealousy and this must be addressed, especially in relationships. Remember – this usually stems from feeling vulnerable and out of control. You are intense and feel things very deeply which allows you to understand those around you on a more profound level than any other Moon sign. But it can also activate you imagination and with this placement in Leo you can over dramatise an innocent situation. You know these emotions do not serve you well so control your pride and self regard and channel them into something more positive and productive as you can achieve a lot. Try not to set the bar too high with your standards especially as you do not always meet them either.
Moon in Sagittarius
You have a great love of adventure and are forever on the lookout for the next expedition so this can make it difficult for you to settle down. However, there is no faulting you loyalty, enthusiasm and charm. Your zest for life is inspiring but you do need to pull the reins in and take stock of your life before you crash and burn which you are very capable of. Make your passions work for you as your restless spirit does need movement to maintain itself. Being too restricted quells the flames of your inner being and you grow despondent and depressed. Your mind is very active and can be imaginative especially in areas of interest. Use this to your advantage. People find you fascinating as you know how to tell a story in a charmingly self-effacing manner. Do try to keep some of your opinions to yourself though. You are valued for your honesty but you do need to learn to care for the feelings of others and the value of tact.
Moon in Capricorn
Success is on your agenda. You know what you want and you will go out of your way to get it. This is an interesting combination as the Sun in Leo presents itself as sociable and can shadow or downplay Capricorn’s cool and calculating interior. This is not to say you are deceptive. You are quite the contrary as your reputation and the impression you make is of paramount importance to you, as is your integrity. Just because you are ambitious does not mean you cannot be trusted either. Your self-respect is valuable and you want others to respect you too. There is a danger towards depression if your self-confidence has been dealt a blow or you doubt your abilities over a particular challenge. These are the times you need to tap into your support network and confide in someone. This is not a sign of weakness and you must set your pride aside to accept any help offered. You have a quirky sense of humour so try and fall on that to give a situation perspective or to soften how others see you. You are not afraid of to work hard for your achievements and this combination gives you the purpose, will and energy to get there but take care not to ride roughshod over people to get there.
Moon in Aquarius
The majestic air of Leo and the aloofness of Aquarius can give you an enigmatic appeal to those around you. However, you are warm and sociable once the ice is broken and people can see your offbeat side which they find both intriguing and a little enviable! And you like it like that as you take pride in your individuality. But try not to use it as a means to maintain a superior distance especially over your zeal and enthusiasm for causes. Not everyone has the time or the capacity to give to humanitarian endeavours and should not be patronised for their more mundane concerns. It fact it would not hurt you to look at others more deeply rather than take them at face value and judge accordingly. You need to develop a more flexible outlook on life especially that of other people. You can do more good by accepting and/or appreciating their views on a situation and listening to their opinions as they may have more practical insights you have not considered as you do focus on the unconventional approach.
Moon in Pisces
Leo’s ambition and self-assurance strengthens the resolve of dreamy Pisces so this brings the ability to make your dreams a reality. Not only that, the Pisces’s charitable nature can soften the sometimes arrogant and snobbish behaviour that sometimes Leo can resort to (but only if they feel insecure in any way). Generally you are a warm and kind-hearted person who is intuitive and aware of the sensibilities of those around you. If they need your help you will be there to assist in any way you can and yet have the resources to impose boundaries so as not to drain yourself emotionally. Do take care not to give into depression especially if things do not go according to plan. You cannot make everything right and carry the burdens of others. That is their responsibility. This is a lovely, creative combination and you have the ability to attract good friends which you need. Do not be afraid to acknowledge any doubts you may have about someone. Trust your instincts and do not allow yourself to be fooled by dishonesty. You value this trait which you yourself possess and expect it in others. Remember, if they are trying to deceive you, they are not a friend.
Understanding the energy of our Moon sign just leads to us leading happier lives – and better connections with all the people around us. So, utilise yours and open up emotional strengths you never knew you had – all courtesy of the Moon!
