As the Earth revolves around the Sun, so does the Moon revolve around the Earth. While our Sun sign tells us what “season” of the year we come from, our Moon sign and its relationship to the Sun tells us what “time of the month” we come from. The Moon’s phases pulse with the tides, like breathing in and out, like a flower opening and closing. While the Sun rules the day representing our outward expression and visible public lives, the Moon rules the night, representing our inner private lives, where we absorb and reflect our inherited circumstances and surroundings: our habits, instincts, emotions, patterns, comforts, our bodies, our origins, our mothers.
The Moon in Leo is in a fixed fire sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, the Sun. So the Moon in Leo is more proud, warm and expressive. People with this placement tend to find emotional fulfillment and a home through creative expression and being the best. While being a high achiever is a potential result of this placement, there can also be the tendency to be a drama queen or a diva, or being too proud for your own good to take help when you need. Sometimes this proud streak can be linked back to early experiences where you had to stand out to get any recognition at all. Sometimes the bigger the show and display is, the more vulnerability is being hidden or compensated for.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Cancer or Leo Rising. If you were born at night you will tend to exhibit more of the positive qualities of this placement, and potentially more than your Sun sign. If you were born during the day you will tend to exhibit more of the difficulties associated with this placement and identify more with your Sun sign.
