What does Leo Sun in combination with Leo Moon mean?

It means that both Sun and Moon are conjunct in the same zodiac sign Leo in the natal birth chart. Individuals who carry this set of combinations inherit the traits arising from it.

In addition to that, the exact angle formed between Sun and Moon carries deeper signification and influence. The angle forms specific Yogas and Lunar Days which hold additional secrets about mind, soul, and life path.

Prelude to Leo Sun & Leo Moon


Sun is the planet of self, soul, vitality, energy, mentality, courage, general intelligence, spirituality, accomplishments, authority, the direction of the soul, etc.

Leo is the 5th sign of the zodiac belt which is warmhearted, authoritative, charismatic, enthusiastic, fearless, generous, loyal, self-aware, confident, hot-tempered, and stubborn in nature.

Leo is the sign owned by Sun which makes it an outstanding combination to have in the natal birth chart. As a result of the Sun being in its own sign, the significations of both become amplified and positively promoted.

First of all, individuals with this combination are especially self-aware. It means that they acknowledge their strengths, capabilities, talents, and self-worth.

Not only that, but they also acknowledge their weaknesses, missing talents, and what is necessary to increase their skills.

With strong Sun in Leo, they put a lot of focus on themselves in order to root out weaknesses and concentrate on strengths that align them with their ultimate purpose on earth.

Hence, they are able to usually find an optimal lifestyle and environment for their own self and soul. This, undoubtedly, leads to greater happiness and prosperity in the long run.

Speaking of which, these individuals are packed full of willpower and steadfastness in order to keep themselves fixed on their ultimate goals.

That trait is provided by the fixed modality of Leo, which denotes loyalty, steadiness, persistence, and unshakable willpower. These traits become amplified by Sun in its own sign.

When these individuals decide on something, they remain loyal to their decisions, and with the help of amplified self-worth, they won’t let anyone distract them from their ideologies or goals.

Moon is the planet that governs the mind and therefore signifies general thinking patterns, emotional well-being, and cognitive abilities.

The significance and traits of Leo have been already listed previously. Individuals with Moon in Leo have their minds influenced by the fire element and fixed modality.

Accordingly, they carry the warm charm with them which they express in a very unique (Leo) manner. They are quite peaceful but have a tendency to burst into flames suddenly. It is a direct effect of the water planet Moon being combined with the fire sign Leo.

There is a lot of steam in their minds which they should release often. Hence, it is important for these natives to choose the correct output for their rather active minds.

Otherwise, they are prone to overthinking from the mind which may lead to overheated brains and reduced cognitive efficiency.

Leo is the 5th sign of the zodiac belt which also signifies creativity, authority, and righteousness. This shows that they are very unique, original, and creative from the mind.

Besides this, Moon in Leo is in 2nd from its own sign Cancer. Herein the 2nd represents resources which shows that they are very resourceful from their mind in addition to being creative.

Hence, such individuals actually carry tremendous cognitive powers which they should express or apply as effectively as possible.

Such individuals are also very righteous from their minds which motivates them to conduct their actions righteously, ethically, and fairly.

This makes them outstanding authoritative figures, managers, guides, mentors, or leaders. The compassionate trait of Moon enhances their authoritative nature. As a result, such individuals show unconditional care towards their people or society.

Leo Sun & Leo Moon Disposition

Planetary Relationship

When both Sun and Moon are in the same sign Leo, it means that they are conjunct. In astrological terms, it means that they share the 1st disposition with respect to each other.

According to the temporary relationship rule of astrology, planets occupying the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th place from each other are temporary friends.

Consequently, planets occupying 1st, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th from the considered planet create temporary enmity between them.

Hence, the 1st disposition between Leo Sun and Leo Moon makes them temporary enemies. However, as Sun and Moon are natural friends, the enmity causes no permanent inauspicious effects.

That is because when temporary enmity is combined with natural friendship, a neutral relationship is formed. This astrological significance holds a lot of important information about individuals having this set of combinations.

As Sun represents the soul while Moon governs the mind, this planetary relationship influences them from inside to outside.

Generally speaking, Sun conjunct Moon signifies struggles in choosing whether to follow logical reasoning or intuition.

With that being said, they are often confused because their thoughts in mind inspire them to take a balanced or calculated approach to various matters while their intuition urges them to rush into action without over-analyzing details.

With Sun dominating over the Moon, these individuals tend to choose to trust their gut feelings more than their logic, especially in situations where making quick decisions is necessary.

With a dignified Sun in Leo, their intuition is usually guiding them righteously leading them to wonderful outcomes.

Their intuition also prepares their conscious mind for the next step. That is to say, they usually agree on something or take the first step while leaving preparations or other necessary tasks for the latter part.

With Sun gaining more power in its own sign Leo, it is clear that it predominates Moon in any way. This means that Sun will have much more influence on these natives in all spheres of life.

Sun is also a natural malefic planet that tends to give results after hard work and teach lessons painfully. However, the comfort zone does not make anyone stronger and the Sun forces to leave it for the sake of tempering one’s soul and mind altogether.

The dominance of the Sun over the Moon shows that they are extremely disciplined and hardworking. They either can not or do not want to live a comfortable life. In most cases, they will harness their available comforts in order to increase their workload.

Astrologically, this effect is proven by the 1st disposition between Sun and Moon in Leo. Herein the 1st signifies passion, vitality, initiation, action, and leadership qualities.

Hence, not only that such individuals are extremely determined or fixed to their goals and ideas, but also have tremendously powerful leadership qualities.

They are packed with passion for action and know exactly how and when to initiate specific tasks or movements in order to get closer to their ultimate goal and become prosperous. Herein intuition is a crucial trait to be as initiative as possible. The analytical part of the mind is used later in progress.

1st Disposition Analysis

The 1st disposition represents the 1st astrological house which signifies self, soul, valor, initiation power, etc. The 1st house belongs to the triangle of Dharma and therefore signifies righteousness.

First of all, the 1st disposition amplifies their already ethical, moral, and righteous nature which is given by Sun-Moon conjunction in Leo.

Such individuals rarely hesitate to take action and protect what is right and protect justice at all costs. They also carry enough valor as well as physical and mental strength to be victorious while doing so.

Even though the 1st disposition carries auspicious energies, the conjunction of Sun and Moon holds some difficult but positive side effects as well.

Namely, when the malefic Sun dominates over Moon, their pride and sense of self-worth become amplified while compassion is compromised.

They are also rather inclined to put a lot of energy and attention into themselves. Having the main focus on themselves, they might appear overly proud.

In reality, as Sun is dignified, they just have to concentrate on themselves as their path is difficult because their calling is higher.

When they lose sight of their own self, they might lose lots of vital time and energy which can decrease their overall performance and efficiency.

The difficulties arise when others start to think that they are egoistic while they are not in reality. They are simply so hardworking that they fail to realize the level of other people and might become too assertive and lack compassion.

Leo is a fire sign which further extends the difficult result of this effect. Namely, they seem and sound always very strict, hot-tempered, and authoritative which can exhaust others mentally and physically rather quickly.

Be it difficult or not, they must maintain their assertive nature as it is one crucial character trait that helps them to protect their goals and ideas while working diligently and hard.

In the positive light, their fiery and demanding nature helps to filter out people with whom they do not match which in turn enables them to focus on their ultimate goal without the additional cost of time and energy.

Phases Of Moon

When Sun and Moon conjoin in the Leo zodiac sign, there is a possibility of the formation of Waning Crescent, New Moon, Waxing Crescent Moon phases.

Waning Crescent

This lunar phase forms before the New Moon which denotes letting go of personal desires and detaching from the materialistic side of life.

Individuals born during this lunar phase are inherently spiritual and selfless. They have mastered detaching from personal desires and thus hold no attachments to materialistic things or values.

It does not mean that they are not materialistically successful but what is definite is that detachment from things improves their peace of mind tremendously.

They are not afraid of losing anything and end up attracting everything they need in their lives. We attract what we detach ourselves from according to the basic law of attraction.

Being able to detach also from expectations, they are free from disappointments which promote their exceptional performance throughout different periods in life.

New Moon

When Sun is tightly conjunct with Moon in Leo, astronomically it creates a new moon phase, which lasts approximately 24 hours.

Hence, it is a relatively rare phase and those who are born during it are indeed fortunate. New Moon is the first lunar phase which therefore signifies beginnings, initiation powers, creation, new ideas, movements, etc.

Theoretically, it is the best phase for this set of combinations because its energies match with the ones of the 1st disposition between Leo Sun and Leo Moon.

As a result of this, the energies of it, such as initiation powers, leadership qualities, and righteousness become dominant in life and supported in many ways.

Individuals born during this lunar phase are great initiators who are passionate and enthusiastic about what they undertake. This passion and energy they invest into their activities are what makes them prosperous and successful in the long run.

They are also very creative and have a lot of ideas whirling in their mind at any given moment. These ideas are seeds that they plant which motivate and guide their actions as well as increase their enthusiasm towards their chosen field of activity.

Despite having lots of ideas, they tend to take action according to their gut feelings. As Moon is darkened, their intuition dominates them, their decisions, and actions.

They have a tendency to make decisions based on intuitive feelings instead of detailed foresight and planning. However, figuring out a plan after a decision has been made is favorable for them as they prefer adventure and spontaneity over a conservative and cautious way of thinking.

Luckily, the 5th sign Leo denotes creativity and creation which means that these natives are very ingenious. Therefore they have the ability to come up with quick solutions when they happen to run into issues caused by their spontaneity, love for adventure, or impulsive action.

Waxing Crescent

This lunar phase comes right after New Moon, which signifies resources, both mental and material, which should be used as effectively as possible to progress in life.

Individuals born during this lunar phase are naturally inclined to grow something big out of minimum resources. In other words, they are very resourceful, conservative, and economically wise.

By being mentally resourceful, they always have special ways of managing things with an efficiency that outperforms some of the best.

It is highly possible that they learn this efficiency through hardships in life where they lacked something which prompted them to learn to get by with minimum resources or possibilities.

When combining the set of combinations Leo Sun Leo Moon with the energies of this lunar phase, a very proactive and self-made person is made.
