Time to ignite! A Leo Moon transit is a generous, creative, live-out-loud place to be…
Closely connected with the watery world of the sea, la Luna is the Mistress of the oceans, ruler of the rhythmic tug of the tides. Yet a Leo Moon transit brings contrast: The element of fire, which is hot, dry, and sustaining.
What does a Leo Moon transit feel like?
This lunar transit feels generous, easy-going, fun-loving, and warm as a summer’s day.
Ruled by the Sun: our Moon’s twin luminary in the skies above, the Moon in Leo is enthusiastic, and eternally optimistic. This Moon also brings a good dose of spontaneity to the cosmic cauldron! Under this transit, the collective approach to life feels energized and we all tend to step into our most vibrant selves!
Simply put: a Leo Moon transit feels good.
Leo comes 5th in the zodiac, and is the sign of fixed fire. This brings devotion and commitment – it’s lunar astrology to help you focus and persevere.
Plus, with the roaring lion 🦁 as this zodiac sign’s symbol and totem, Leo Moon transits usually brings “king of the jungle” type vibes to the day…
Because of this, a Leo Moon tends to amplify confidence and courage. So if you’re someone who’s already brimming with self-belief then this astrology can be the cherry on the cake!
But if you struggle with self-confidence, self-motivation, or that old trickster self-belief, a Leo Moon transit an feel like a gift.
Quite simply, this firey Moon sign makes it easier to feel happy, positive, and tapped into the sunny side of life!
…And this means you’re much more able to take control of situations that may, just a day or two ago, have seemed far too daunting.
Fueled by the Sun Leo Moons are (of course!) synonymous with BIG heart energy
Energetically warm and affectionate, a Leo Moon transit does more than just amplify a loving nature.
This Moon brings deep-seated heart energy.
Maybe you’ve heard people talk about heart-centered living? This is the Moon in Leo’s specialty!
Navigating life from a heart-centered place is SO different from the polarised, ego-driven, mind-centric way of living and creating that most of us are used to.
Moon sign Leo offers an alternative, by activating the inner fire and connecting us to the cave within. This transit positively encourages a New Earth outlook.
Practically, this can look like:
- Releasing mental chatter
- Letting go of logic
- Prioritizing yourself
- Physically dropping your awareness into the actual heart space. When you “think” from here, you’ll be responding to the world, and making decisions from a non-polarised place.
- Visualizing “breathing” from your heart.
- Exploring the idea of unity consciousness.
Exploring heart-based wisdom, and accessing the intelligence of this body center can bring real healing – not only for you but for all of humanity.

With bravery and courage levels rising, you may feel like taking control and expressing a little authority.
So when a Leo Moon transit sweeps across the sky –
👉🏼 Act wisely
👉🏼 Radiate truth
👉🏼 Communicate with respect
👉🏼 Show up with integrity
Become the kind of person others look up to…
These fiery Moons can also tend to draw out your inner performer and may just pull you into the spotlight.
So if there’s an audience out there expecting you to shine, don’t turn away from it under a Leo Moon transit!
Whether you’re facing a big meeting at work, your first Instagram Live, or even declaring your undying love for the first time… this is the astrology to be bold!
Take a risk
Leo Moon transits are invitations to push yourself (but not too far!)
This astrology wants us ALL to stand out from the crowd!
But beware – this is a Moon under which drama queens (or kings) can thrive.
…and not in the best ways!
If you have theatrical or dramatic tendencies (you know who you are!) then keep yourself and your sense of self-importance in check. Under a Leo Moon, be sure to inspire by embodying grace, leaving any melodrama at the door.
Nobody loves an over-inflated ego.
So if you’re not being received as well as you’d like, don’t forget that you may not be the solar star of everyone’s show!
Try not to let your pride get too dented. Despite the tough exterior, Leo Moon transits really do activate a childlike vulnerability, even if it stays hidden within.
Realise that under a Leo Moon, rejection is rarely personal.
And if you notice the folks around you getting a little too big for their own boots, let them down gently. Put that big heart energy to good use and give them space to shine…
And probably shine themselves out… The stars will shift, and in a day or two, astrology will bring us all a new game to play.
The Leo Moon body
Some children of the Moon can be physically affected by the Moon’s transit.
If you’re one of those lucky people, then la Luna’s transit through the sign of Leo, will be felt in the heart, blood, and circulation.
If you have low blood pressure, this could be activating astrology for you. So if you’re anemic, for example, watch those iron levels. But if you have high blood pressure, then be careful it doesn’t go too high…
The Leo Moon shadow
Every Moon has her shadow.
Shadows are rejected, distorted, misunderstood, or suppressed (or all of those!) aspects of self. Under a Leo Moon, the shadow can look like:
- Being bossy
- Being Stubborn
- Being flippant
Healing and reclaiming these shadow fragments is a very necessary practice on the spiritual path. Under every Leo Moon, you’ll get the opportunity (if you want it!) to dive into your unconscious, and seek these pieces out.
Does the Moon sign really affect how we feel every day?!
As old Grandmother Moon spins around the Earth, she spends between 1 and 4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign…
And YES – given on any day, the sign of the Moon really does affect the “emotional weather” of the collective.
Some people are super-tuned into her celestial shifts, yet it’s true that some folks hardly feel her influence at all.
It depends on you, your make-up, your attention, and on SO many internal and external factors.
But… if you know what today’s Moon sign is, you have a better chance of navigating her emotional waves, should they get a little stormy…
**I challenge you to keep a notebook and write down how you feel as the Leo Moon shifts into Virgo, then into Libra and Scorpio…Try it!
The Moon’s movements through the sky will usually be felt through your feelings, sensitivities, and intuition
We’re talking about the deeper layers of your being, those you may not wear on a badge on your chests, for all the world to see…
In the birth chart, it’s said that the natal Moon sign is much more revealing than the natal Sun
This means that the zodiac sign the Moon was in when you were born, may have more of an effect on who you truly are, than the zodiac sign of the Sun. (All those astrologers out there will know exactly what I mean…!)
You’ll find that the Moon is usually more evident in children.
They tend not to have learned to hide pieces of themselves away (yet), so their lunar qualities are on show. And you’ll also tend to see the giveaway traits of a natal Moon sign in lovers, close friends, and people who show up with you vulnerably.
So at work, your Leo Sun partner may show all the signs of being a confident and proficient leader. Yet at home when the working day is done, the soft and gooey center of their Cancer Moon may come out for affection. (And Leo Suns may also enjoy a cuddle!)
Your natal Moon will also often, uncannily reflect how you were mothered
Unravel this a little further, and you may discover more about how your relationship with your mother has shaped who you are today. Follow the thread a little further, and you may realise the effect on how you, in turn, mother.
**A fun game – ask your own mother what her natal Sun and Moon are – or ask her for her date and time of birth and find out. Then cross-reference these with your own. Are there any overlaps?
How intuitive and empathetic are also heavily influenced by your natal Moon
- Those with their Moon in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) may naturally feel more spiritually connected, or have spent their childhood being told they were “too emotional” (sound familiar?!)
- Those with their Moon in an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) are also likely to be open to intuitive guidance, yet it may come through thoughts, ideas, and inspiration.
- Fire sign Moons (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) tend to be passionate and creative, with warm personalities.
- Earth sign Moons (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) are hardworking, practical, and enjoy the sensations of materiality.
These are generalisations, yes! Yet whilst this astrology manifests differently for us all, patterns do exist.
As an ancient Goddess of the feminine mysteries, the Moon also influences the body
As she circles the Earth, the tides within our own bodies tend to rise and fall. So parts of you will feel enlivened or dulled, soothed or enflamed, depending on how her energies land in your own miraculous physicality.
