Pathway to Ascension: Leo Sun Sign

Great way to look at sun sign – what you are actively becoming?

“Astrology and astronomy were established as sciences around 5000 B.C.E. in Chaldea and Babylonia. Many of the great names in the history of our world civilization were astrologers. Our Western history books simply call them philosophers, astronomers, doctors of medicine, theologians, politicians, mathematicians-ignoring the fact that astrology played a major role in their lives and thinking.”

Your zodiac sun sign signifies the energy on which your Soul incarnated this lifetime. Though there are numerous additional factors influencing the overall map of your Soul, your sun sign plays a major role in your life. Your sun sign reveals your consciousness of self as a unique human being.

If you also know your Ascendant’s sign energy, you may study the zodiac energies from yet another point of view. Your Ascendant energy most often characterizes the way others perceive you. At the soul-centered level, your Ascendant energy reveals your Soul’s purpose and the activities through which you most naturally express that purpose.


The person who is Leo incarnated to develop wholeness within self and a strong sense of his individual uniqueness. On the personality-centered level, Leo is motivated by the need for love and dominion over others. Leo’s soul goal is to become master over the ego-self and to offer love to humanity with no thought of return. Therefore, many of Leo’s experiences will contain the conflict between the ego-self and the soul’s desires.

For example: Leo often attempts to be the leader, whether or not he is selected for the position. When the group of “hoped-for-followers” refuses to accept his leadership, Leo’s ego suffers great pain from what he perceives as “rejection” of who he is. These blows to Leo’s ego are to be used as opportunities to develop a strong sense of ego-identity regardless of outside influences.

Leo is to look within and to create an “inner throne” as a result of self-mastery. Seated on this “inner throne,” Leo surrenders his ego-will to the will of his soul. From his mundane longings to dominate as royalty, Leo is to evolve into functioning on the soul-centered level where his spiritual magnetism will automatically attract others. Instead of longing for the love of others, Leo now willingly extends love to humanity. As a result of developing a strong inner ego surrendered to his soul’s desires, Leo awakens to his leadership role as an outstanding and unique Part of the Whole.

Creativity is vital to Leo’s spiritual journey. Creativity reveals Leo’s uniqueness; it proclaims who he is. Leo usually possesses a marked flair for drama, arts, and sports. He is intensely emotional, courageous, optimistic, very generous, and affectionate. Leo often brings sunshine into the lives of others with his radiant smile and cheerful disposition.

Leo’s best career is one in which he has the freedom to create, promote ideas or causes, and to be a source of inspiration to others.
