An individual born with the Moon in Leo tends to express feelings dramatically and with intensity. At best, they can be an excellent source of inspiration to others and will inevitably find an outlet for all their inner potential. Leo Moons have a golden quality about them that shines through, and they are naturally sociable and agreeable people. The symbol of Leo is the Lion and this is reminiscent of their guarding, protecting side with a strong sense of dignity and inner strength; moreover, they tend to see things in a grand way. Leo’s sense of destiny is the driving force behind their achievements, but they can set high standards for themselves and expect others to emulate them. This combination is inclined to be proud, they need to be noticed and to make an impact on the environment. Similarly, they need recognition, acknowledgment, and praise from others. They may become compulsive in their need for attention and power and seek security in the ‘limelight’.
When the Moon is placed in the sign of Leo, there is a strong sense of individuality with this position and if their demands for attention are ignored, they feel wounded. The individual is also jealous if a loved one takes away attention, and is sensitive to criticism. More usually, though, they appear confident, self-assured and forceful, as they are determined to make a definite impression on others. And there is natural sincerity, loyalty, warmth, and generosity, that will usually draw a positive response from others.
If your Moon sign is Leo, you are a true champagne-and-roses romantic and thoroughly enjoy being in a mutually satisfying relationship. Leo has the distinction of being the sign that rules the human heart! Romance, fun, risk-taking and having children come under the rulership of the fifth sign of Leo, and a Leo Moon person will take a romantic risk any day. You have a big heart and love is truly the elixir of life for you. The Leo Moon personality is divided into two, separate versions. Let’s see which one resonates more with your personality.

The 12 Moon Signs in Love
Commonly they are optimistic, cheerful and sunny, and not much dampens their spirit. Leo possesses natural leadership qualities, and they always do things with a natural flair and showmanship. They are often naturally artistic or interested in drama and the theatre. Some will have a natural rapport with children and will enjoy entertaining them. Not surprisingly, they can be childlike, self-expressive, and fun.
According to Dane Rudhyar,
The activation by the Moon of the electromagnetic forces of the sign of Leo produces a strong and almost heroic intensification of personal magnetism. Such an intensification is sometimes not as physically or outwardly obvious as when the Sun is located in Leo, but it also possesses a very dramatic quality – a subtler, more elusive quality which it is hard to deny or oppose. The Leo Moon type knows by instinct how to use charm, persuasion and artistry in creating a wondrous picture of himself, and he knows how to impress this picture upon others. This may mean self-conceit and a peculiar kind of arrogance, as with Oscar Wilde who had the Moon in Leo. But it may mean also a complete personal identification with a great Cause, or utter devotion to some radiant and powerful personage. Such a configuration suggests a very rich personal nature and great procreative powers. It makes for powerful and prolific mothers; and in men creates a yearning for the ideal woman from whom abundant spiritual and physical vitality might be received. It may give some degree of seership, or a keen insight into the processes of life. These gifts are the byproducts of a power of self-identification with the universal energy of light and life. In such a state of identification almost everything is – or seems – possible. From it a strong imagination arises which, if not let to run wild, produces the faith that moves mountains.
The Moon in Leo will often have a fiery temperament and straightforward honesty. Furthermore, they encourage others to get in touch with their creative and artistic side. As they love romance, passion, and plenty of color in their lives, they are not drawn to anything dreary or drab or too routine. They might have a strong and noticeable style in their personal life, which is not for the faint-hearted! Or unique behavior patterns may also contribute to creating a dynamic image. As Sydney Omarr says, “the Leo moon represents the fifth house, which coincides with creativity, luxury, personality, and sex appeal.
