Natal Sun in Leo

When a person has his natal Sun in Leo, it means that he belongs to the zodiac sign of Leo. Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and has the Sun as its ruling celestial body. Thus, the Sun here is dignified and operates in full potency. The period of Leo starts on the 22nd of July and lasts until the 22nd of August. Slight differences in the exact hours can occur because we should not forget that every fourth year has one more day than the others. The Sun is the brightest object in the sky, the life-giving star of our Solar System, and also the most important celestial body in astrology. Also called Sol, the Sun is impersonated by the ancient Greek goddess Helios.

The crowned Sun that radiates vitality, pride, courage, self-esteem, charisma, creativity, hierarchy, brilliance, personality. Golden time of thrones, romances, arts, games, hearts.
Solar Leos are proud, bold, gentle, strong, generous, cheerful, optimistic, ambitious, loyal and cheerful. Although there are also negative sides. They can be overly demanding, impatient, domineering, lazy, narcissistic and deaf to the words of other people. They do everything that gives them great scope for creativity, leadership and organization. They appear strong on the outside, but most Leos are sensitive on the inside and easily hurt. When this happens, they may lash out at the offender because their pride is hurt. Leos are undeniably not without acting talent and love to tell stories, be the center of attention, have a good time and put on a real show.
Bad and cruel deeds are not for them, but the Lions will not hesitate and use force if necessary. No matter what they do, Leos are always sure that they are acting in the interests of another person. If the Leo is angry, he immediately gets used to the role of the king, “takes his throne” and quickly puts the opponent or offender in his place. Lions literally roar at people when they are furious. But when their tirade is over, they forgive, forget, and never hold a grudge. At their best, Leos are loving, joyful, and optimistic individuals who can bring light into other people’s lives. They are exceptionally generous.
Money seeps through their fingers like sand. And they have no idea where everything goes. Usually Lions have excellent health with strong life-giving forces. When they are sick, they often have a fever. They rarely get depressed, but if they do, they just get depressed. Fortunately, they recover quickly, so soon they will have sunny, happy days again, despite the fact that their heart is broken. Leos have a hard time getting over it. And things like that can lead to real heart problems. Leos must admire their partner. If this is not so, then family life will not last long. And of course, Leos need to feel appreciated.
Leo is a fixed fire sign. There is something earthy, static, bullfighting, in the fixed modality. For its part, fire is impulsive, energetic, Aries, creative. This is why I always say that leo are bullfighting fire. They have that need for stability and security that we see in Taurus but the element of fire endows them with more generous and expansive qualities than those of the earth, which is meaner and colder. Also like Taurus, Leos love pleasures, luxury, the good things in life. However, it is worth remembering a phrase from Oscar Wilde (who had a Moon in Leo) to summarize Leo’s preferences: “My tastes are very simple: I settle for the best.” It is not for nothing that so many designers, models, businessmen in the luxury and refinement industry are born under this sign, for example Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton.

Its ruler, the Sun, tells us a lot about the sign. He gives us energy, heat, life, but we must all revolve around him. Leo always has an entourage at his disposal. He does not exercise, however, a rustic and aggressive command as that of Aries can be, rather it is a natural centrality, which radiates authority from his charisma and personality. The Sun is also always close to two fundamental planets for its kingdom: Venus (representing grace, women, pleasures, beauty and luxuries) and Mercury (messengers, spokesmen, communicators, advisers). The Sun and the Moon they form a fundamental symbolic duality: the king and the queen, the father and the mother, the day and the night, the objective and the subjective, the masculine and the feminine. Its natural antagonist is Saturn, the planet that governs two signs in which the Sun is weak: Libra (fall) and Aquarius (exile).

The 5th House corresponds to Leo: romances, entertainment, children, sports, games, art, theater, hobbies and hobbies. However, he is also associated with the 10th House, which represents status, honors, a public figure, profession and authority. The ancients called the hour of the kings at noon because at that moment the Sun is in the Midheaven, the highest point of the natal chart. In fact, Napoleon Bonaparte and Louis XIV, among other monarchs and rulers, were born with the Sun in the 10th House. Therefore, the combination of the meanings of these two houses tends to largely describe the interests and desires of Leo. Their sign on a more specific level governs the heart: they are the most likely to suffer from heart conditions and, of course, love. We can also list other symbols: the back, the gold, the crown, the rulers, the father, the drama, the art, the vitality, the self-esteem, the pride, the honor.

In Leo, the need to be someone is born , to improve oneself, to find oneself (which is reminiscent, in many ways, of apprenticeship novels or  bildungsroman). Identity, individuality, expression and creativity are fundamental to them, which is why many artists are born under the influence of this sign in Cancer the family is given to us: the inheritance, the environment, the past, the home. On the other hand, in Leo we see life oriented to the future, we get rid of the Cancer dependence on the family environment and seek a new one through our own paternity / authority / status (10 House) and love / children / works (House 5). It is a path that is somewhat related to adolescence (and to overcoming it): through personal brilliance and a break with the past, I can define myself, find my voice and my destiny.
