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.
