The Expression of Leo

Leo tends to shine and offer encouragement. It is a royal quality that takes natural pride in the accomplishments that come from embracing the full radiance of their potential. In that respect, Leo tends to encourage others to reconnect to that same enthusiasm and to the courage of their own hearts. When people are stressed in a social situation, such as having to give a talk, they tend to automatically seek out contact with Leo's energy, often through eye contact, to regain assurance and encouragement.

When Leo loses connection to their natural enthusiasm and trust in the shining of their own heart, they tend to seek to recapture that experience of shining by seeking attention, the spotlight, or through pride or arrogance. Leo may often choose to hide to protect their pride until they regain the natural expression of their heart.

Leo rules the heart and is associated with leadership, risk, gambling, gold, children, and pride.

Leo and Mercury Retrograde

Leo can set themselves up for mercury retrograde by the need to shine, be generous, or have an appreciative audience experience. When Leo acts out of pride or the need to make a grand gesture, they may overlook the consequences. For example, they may end up picking up the tab in the restaurant but forget how it may affect their account balance or be over-generous with their offer of time or support. When others take them up on it, they find themselves juggling their schedule and priorities.

When caught by their pride, Leo can be at risk of taking on tasks beyond their experience or abilities. For example, over-confidence can pull Leo to risk or let the dice roll without assessing their choices' full consequences.
