Those with Moon in Leo are emotionally expressive – some might call them drama queens (or kings). They’re soothed in the spotlight, which for their loved ones can be at times wildly entertaining, and at other times utterly overwhelming.
There’s an early compulsion to show off that can lead to artistic achievement and winning all the popularity contests. But if left unchecked, this natural desire to be center stage could lead to a melodramatic personality that drains others.
Many are liable to have spontaneous bursts of enthusiasm that can seem over-the-top. But count on them to cheer you up when you’re blue, or to encourage you to take that risk. They themselves thrive when living at that edge of creation, trusting in the value of what they have to share with the world.
The Moon in Leo person sees the sunny side of life and people, as long as everyone remembers who’s the alpha of the pack. They’re natural leaders with a self-confidence that radiates a message that life is not only good and abundant, but also fun.
Their true gift is being able to inspire others with a power that can revive a lost dream or heal a broken heart. They’ll also surprise you with an act of generosity that rekindles your faith in friendship.
In love, a foundation of pride keeps the Moon in Leo from showing too much vulnerability. But under that bravado or cheery exterior is a childlike trust and a very tender heart. When deeply wounded in love, it can take quite awhile for the royal bearing to return.
Here from our reports:
“Inwardly, you are emotionally warm, and those close to you may feel this, but you may find it difficult to convey this warmth to the world at large. Of course other parts of your horoscope might contradict this, but it’s likely that you want to burst out into the broad arena, but are emotionally shy or reserved so that you find it hard to show your feelings. You may marvel at others who make a strong impression with their uninhibited emotions, and wish you could be more like them. You might well look for these traits in a partner. Simply by watching your partner in action, you would be able to learn emotional skills and satisfy some of your needs for emotional expression. Your partner may also help to convey your feelings to others, and, even better, stand by your side to support you while you practice displaying your own feelings to the world.
Deep within you there’s an actor, and if you’re shy and nervous about appearing before an audience, you really can overcome these problems. It may help to have a partner who can perform with you. This could be a temporary alliance formed for a particular occasion, but if you’re connected with a long-term partner who helps you to feel confident, you would be able to practice becoming more outgoing on a regular basis.
You can become more outgoing by yourself as well. You might have to force yourself to go on stage, and you’ll probably be nervous or a bit uncomfortable. If you’re giving a talk or presentation, scan the audience for people in various spots around the room who are smiling or nodding in approval at what you’re saying. Then as you continue talking, look at each of them in turn. Because your eyes won’t be glued to one particular spot, you’ll seem to be interacting with the entire audience. More important, you’ll feel more comfortable because you’re interacting with individuals, and you’ll feel more at ease because of their approval.
Whether or not you choose to take the public route, be aware that you have a real talent for dealing with individuals. Rather than envying those who seem to be more outgoing, cultivate your own ability to make people feel loved and cared for. Others will recognize this in you, and with a little effort, you will be able reveal your warmth to them. The only time you might hold back would be with those who you feel don’t like you, and even then you might just try harder. If you still feel rejected or unappreciated, simply avoid these people. Surround yourself with those who think you’re wonderful, and you’ll easily be able to express your natural warmth."
