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. And 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.

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 assumes greater significance when it is found in one of the following three positions: when Leo is the ascendant, when the Sun is in Leo or when the Moon is in Leo. Here are a few luminaries who have benefited from their connection to Leo:

  • Jeff Bridges and award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter K.D. Lang have Leo ascendant;
  • Mother Teresa had Sun in Leo like Canadian journalist, author, and public speaker Malcolm Gladwell;
  • Paramahansa Yogananda had Moon in Leo like award-winning Canadian filmmaker and actor Xavier Dolan.

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 Sun) reside—it is here that our natural gifts and talents will most shine and where we can be of most service to others.
