While Leo usually demands to be seen—and is prepared to throw a tantrum if it has to stay in the shadows for too long—a Leo moon is a little more laid back, wanting the spotlight only when the mood is right.

When the moon is in Leo, the best thing to remember is that there's a time to be bold and a time to lay low. Try not to let pride or stubbornness get in your way, as cooler heads will prevail here. Leos are also dedicated and passionate, making this a particularly romantic time!

Moon in Leo Personality

"Lionhearted" best describes the character of a lunar Leo whose bravery and intensity exceed even their solar equivalents. But these strong personas disguise kind and affectionate individuals who are just as likely to build up others as they are themselves, though limelight-loving. Their merry attitudes warm any room they're in.

Positive Traits

Misery truly disturbs the lunar Leo spirit. To live joyfully is the primary mission of those with their moon in Leo. They often lead others to their ideal world of excitement and inspiration. While Leo moons have a lot of pride in themselves, they arguably have even more in those dearest to them.

Negative Traits

The Leo archetype is well known for its penchant for drama. Unlike their solar equivalents, lunar Lions keep their theatrics in the domestic sphere. Their reputation matters far too much to them to endanger a meltdown. However, they should take care not to allow outside opinions to dim their shine. Perception isn't reality, Leo moon.
