Planets in Leo Part 2: Mars, Venus, and Moon
In Planets in Leo Part 1, Ascendant and Mercury, I talked about Ascendant/Rising and Mercury in the sign of Leo. In this hub, Planets in Leo Part 2: Mars, Venus and Moon, I will be talking about mars, Venus, and moon in Leo. Again this does not specifically refer to the sun sign in Leo (some similarities may apply however). If you do not know your Mars, Venus, or Moon sign, you can run a natal chart (for free, type natal chart in google and plug in your birth data.)
Mars in Leo
Your Mars is in Leo, in the planet of action, sexuality/sexual expression, and energy. Mars in Leo is quite comfortable. Even though Mars is exalted in Capricorn, Mars is dignified in Aries (Mars rules Aries, the god of war).
This means its fellow fire sign brother Leo is naturally quite comfortable in the planet of aggression, energy and sexuality. Fire signs are naturally bold, forceful and passionate and the Leo in Mars in no exception.
Ruled by the Sun, Leo in Mars is naturally confident, energetic and vibrant. Leo mars wants to have a good time. Naturally this energy is drawn to activities that allows them to proclaim their self, individuality and creativity. You must remember that Leo is a big child at heart. Naturally they will want to be on stage and a performer. Even if they are not stage or performing they want to do things where there is an audience. Sports and activities such as football, swimming, all that showcase (aka show off) their athleticism, leadership abilities, and of course their bodies.
On the negative this Mars in Leo can be quite self-centered, bossy, arrogant and boastful. It will oftentimes feel that they need an audience and have to put on a show. The Leo Mars is very confident but will have the tendency to rub off their successes in people’s faces making attention seekers and big show offs. This perhaps and debatably the most extreme Leo placement.
Mars in Leo (con't.)
Mars also governs sexuality and sexual expression. Mars in Leo is lovemaking royalty of the zodiac. Passionate, playful, mixed with a wildly romantic and exhibitionist tendencies is the Mars in Leo person.
The Leo in Mars person, wants to feel loved, give love and there is a need for desire is high. As much as they are passionate they are loyal lovers that are looking for quality in partners (not quantity).
Not to get it twisted they are still players and still can be a self-centered fire sign but more than ever they want a lover that will make them feel like a king or queen. They will make you feel like a king or queen too, so not to worry.
There is that common possessive and jealous tendencies typically associated with fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Taurus, and Aquarius). They give loyalty and they expect loyalty of their subjects (oops I meant lovers). Either way you will have fun with these amazing lovers.
Venus in Leo
Venus is all about love and how we act in relationships. Venus in Leo is quite a nice position for Venus to be in. It’s not the best (considering how self-centered, forceful and self-absorbed fire signs can be). Even so, it’s quite nice. Ruled by the Sun, this Leo Venus is naturally confident, playful, and filled with energy and warmth.
Venus in Leo is a fun, affectionate position. This position is a one of a native that wants to be loved (and admired), showered with gifts and compliments, and to be romanced. Like the other Leo planet positions they want to be treated like royalty.
The Venus in Leo person will treat you like royalty so it’s not one sided, well most of the time. They are big romantics (not in sweet, emotional water sign, Pisces way) but in the humanly, ego-conscious way. They are not the most self-less in relationships but they are big hearted and filled with warmness.
The Venus in Leo ego needs to be stroked constantly and they are big at fishing for compliments. They also need more attention than average and be quite dramatic if they don’t get it. They want to be one number one and they want to hear it all the time. They want the elaborate displays of affections, extravagant gifts. This can lead to them being overly demanding and theatrical. The dramatics and being extra can get annoying after a while. There is also the famous fixed sign trait of jealously and possessiveness. This is due to their stubborn and proud nature that can be quite sensitive. Even so, the Leo Venus is one of loyalty and longevity.
Moon in Leo
Your Moon is Leo, which means you are ruled by the Sun. The moon governs emotions and the home among other things. The moon is the one of the most private planets in your natal chart, so there is quite a vulnerability and sensitivity in this planet. Leo moon is one of warmth, loyalty, generosity, playfulness and creativity.
On the downside the Leo moon is self-centeredness, possessiveness, demanding and arrogance. More than ever the Leo moon wants to feel special. If they don’t feel special the take a huge blow to their pride (which is sensitive).
This is naturally artistic and creative position (along with Pisces/water sign moons and Venus ruled moons aka Taurus and Libra). Being creative helps them express themselves and give them a chance to show-off and feel unique.
Leo moons as energetic as they are, can have a huge lazy streak. Remember Leos are the big cat of the zodiac. They need to retreat home and relax in their castles, pretty much like a house cat. Over all, Leo moon is one of the more pleasant moon signs.
