On August 15th, the Sun moves from the deeply sensitive and emotional water sign of Cancer to the warm, action-oriented fiery sign of Leo, ruled by the Sun and stays until September 15th. This is a very special time of year for all Leos, but we must remember, each and every one of us has the 12 signs in our astrological chart, which means we all have Leo in one of our houses. So, whichever house Leo resides in your birth chart is the area of your life where the effects of the Sun in Leo will have the most impact.

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac; it relates to love, creativity and children. This radiant sign is ruled by the powerful Sun, which itself is directly connected to our heart. Indeed, wherever we find Leo in our chart, we will also find the things we are most passionate about in life.

Symbolized by the lion with its loud roar and long mane, the Sun in Leo gives a stately, dignified air of royalty. We may be driven by the desire to be loved and admired as the sun passes through the magnanimous sign of Leo, King of the Zodiac, ruled by the most powerful planet in our solar system, the Sun. Indeed, we may find ourselves enjoying center stage or entertaining others.

The sun gives us light and life. We depend on the sun for energy. Sun is the most powerful planet in our solar system. Due to this power, he is considered as King or Father of our solar system. The Sun’s rays are connected with the innermost spirit of human beings. Hence, the sun is depicted as the soul of the universe representing the life force on earth. The sun is related to the Atma, our true soul self.

From August 15 to September 15, we can take advantage of this time to develop a magnanimous heart and express our most authentic self. This is a time to conquer all the meannesses of the heart and replace it with a pure heart and the power of love.

Leo is a charismatic sign with tremendous power. Each of us has Leo energy in our astrological chart. The sign Leo is highlighted when it is found in one of the following three positions: when Leo is the ascendant and when the Sun or the Moon is in Leo. Here are a few Canadian luminaries who have benefited from their connection to Leo:

  • LEO ASCENDANT: Prime minister Justin Trudeau, actors Mike Myers and Keanu Reeves (photo) as well as award-winning singers Anne Murray and K.D. Lang have Leo ascendant;
  • SUN IN LEO: Singer-songwriter Shania Twain (photo) and jazz pianist and composer Oscar Peterson have Sun in Leo, like journalist, author and public speaker Malcolm Gladwell;
  • MOON IN LEO: Award-winning filmmaker Xavier Dolan, actor Joshua Jackson, award-winning singer-songwriters Robbie Robertson (photo), Burton Cummings, Robert Charlebois and Michel Rivard, and singer and actress Mitsou have the Moon in Leo like founder of Self-Realization Fellowship Paramahansa Yogananda.

Because the energy of the Sun and its relation to our heart are so powerful, the placement of the sign Leo in a chart is considered to be extremely important. This transit provides us an opportunity to express the depth of our feelings and offer the very best of who we are to others. Therefore, it is good to know the astrological house in which Leo (and its ruler the Sun) resides—it is here that our natural gifts and talents will most shine and where we can be of most service to others.

Discover how the Sun in Leo can influence your life and relationships. We can help you make the most of this powerful planetary transit. Book a consultation with us, either on Skype, by phone or via Zoom.
