After weeks of feeling depleted while in Cancer, Mars was more than happy to exit the sign of its fall and enter the fiery, passionate and dramatic sign of Leo.
As he sauntered into the Lion’s den, Mars could feel his confidence return, his courage increase and his passion burn. Feeling a sense of pride and entitlement, he took his seat upon Leo’s throne, and a drama king was born.
While Mars is in Leo, he seeks the spotlight and wants to hear the sound of applause. He also tends to take everything personally and is quick to lash out in righteous indignation against anyone who disagrees, criticizes or opposes him. That’s why while Mars is in Leo, he can be an impatient bully who when challenged is at best combative and at worst a tyrant.
Fortunately for Mars (and everyone else), while in Leo his heart also expands, along with a fun-loving nature, unbridled generosity, creative abilities and passion for life. When Mars in Leo chooses to channel his ambition through these outlets, he achieves dazzling success in the arts, builds empires, spearheads noble causes and donates generously to those less fortunate.
Depending upon the circumstances, Mars in Leo can be a dictator or a benefactor, but whether he’s presiding over a reign of terror or a peaceable kingdom, the one thing you can count on is that he’ll never back down.
