Natal Moon in Leo

Famous people with natal Moon in Leo

Strangely enough, this was a Moon sign where a lot of people I looked up, their chart time was in question. I have added Louis XIV of France, known as the Sun King. The British House of Windsor is also said to have a lot of Leo in their charts in general.

What people with natal Moon in Leo are like

Leo is ruled by the Sun and as such those with Moon in Leo tend to be warm and creative individuals.  They are usually quite open when it comes to their emotions and there can be a bit of theatricality or flamboyance to them as well. There is a desire to be the hero or heroine, and many fear being seen as less than heroic.

For Leo Moons, life is to be lived large, and they gravitate towards the spotlight; although some may only feel comfortable being the center of attention within their own private circle of friends and family. As a fire sign, they have a passionate and optimistic nature and love to socialize with others.

When they are hurt or upset, they may wallow for quite a bit of time, because they are a fixed sign. They are not a fan of change and can have trouble adjusting to new events and adapting their emotional responses.

This is the sign of a drama king or queen, and any perceived slights from others can be blown out of proportion sometimes. Being ignored, overlooked or judged as being wanting hurts them deeply.

They have a huge pride, only natural for a lion, and having it crushed will smart more than most things. They won’t mind you laughing at their bad luck or their chequered love life but dent their ego and you will know about it.

When Leo Moons are happy and content, they are magnanimous and eager to share their good luck with family and friends. They have a natural instinct towards leadership and are quick to include others. They inherently understand that happiness shared is multiplied. They tend to find it difficult to allow someone else to take charge, however.

Their instincts are usually rather good, although, they can sometimes hesitate too long, trying to judge how others will think of them. They are very aware of their own publicity and are careful to monitor it almost instinctively.

When it comes to nurturing others, there is an understanding that if you are with them, then, of course, you will be receiving only the best. They are very loyal and are likely to be as free with praise as they are with their money when it comes to those that they love and care about. They will also expect to have this returned in full by those close to them.

Leo Moons are positive, entertaining and fun to be around. There can be a stubbornness to their nature that can have them holding onto issues that they need to let go of, particularly in relation to their ego, but they are generally happy, upbeat people.
