Don't let the Sun in Leo go to your head!

Don’t let the Sun in Leo go to your head!


Sun transiting Leo can boost our confidence – which is great! Enjoy the autumn days and spread your abundant feelings around

Make hay while the sun shines is also wise – put away some of your harvest for the coming months

Sun in Leo can prevent us from seeing the details of our life up close mistakes can be made – perceptions skewed if over-confident

Remember that there are substantial global & economic shifts coming this fall – a sharp  shift downward is possible – preparations need to be made


How wonderful –  Sun is in Leo  August 17 – September 17th!

Sun, the planet of illustrious kingship returns to his royal palace and happily sighs in relief as his devoted entourage welcomes him back home. From August 16 – September 17th the world may seem a brighter place by his regal presence in Simha (the Sanskrit name for the constellation of Leo the lion).   Confidence may surge as we survey our kingdom and reap the well-deserved harvest of our life this year.  This may be the time to take our profits from the market and enjoy purchasing and wearing gold!  It’s also a great time to share your abundance by spreading some of the light around. Commit to making your world a little happier, brighter and more joyful.

By transit, wherever Sun in Leo shows up in our chart, that domain of life feels his light and blessings.  Those that have personal planets or their Vedic Ascendant in Leo may particularly feel to surge ahead with great confidence especially if those planets are the benefics like Mercury, Moon, Venus and Jupiter.   People with key planets (like sun, moon or the ascendant) in Leo love to shine and be the center of attention.  Key planets in the 5th house can also give some of the influences of Leo.  Often we find Leo personalities center stage, either by profession, like actors, musicians, or creative artists, or by leading the way in some dramatic fashion.   They can shine equally in the boardroom or at charitable functions: there is a certain flair to a Leo personality that attracts others to them.  Often the Leo person gives up the higher paying job for a titled position – somewhere  they can be appreciated and applauded – even if behind the scenes.

But wait; don’t we also have to look to see what other planets are doing and how they may influence Sun in Leo’s perspective on life?

Exactly.  Depending on what aspects Sun in Leo, and what planets he is with (be it benefic or malefic) his approach will be more magnanimous, self-indulgent, or entitled.  Some great saintly personalities are born with Sun in Leo, (like Mother Teresa)  as are successful con-men and those suffering from megalomania!   When Sun is in Leo by birth, the person may feel so special, so unique and protected that nothing can affect him.   This can lead to a tendency to ignore danger or situations which are potentially dangerous or harmful.  
  • This personality may also be very hot-tempered and doesn’t like competition.  
  • Sun likes to be the center of attention and resents others who try to usurp his position. 
  • Other planets in the same constellation may be overshadowed by his natural radiance and disappear from view. 
  • This can lead to jealousy and misunderstandings with those closest to him.  
  • With over-confidence in the moment, he may fail to put aside some of his abundant harvest for the coming winter months, and continue to indulge his every royal whim. 
  • Sun in Leo’s confident approach can easily move to boastfulness.
  • There’s a tendency to not plan for the future.
  • Or a failure to see vital details close to home.  
  • Sometimes there are serious ego issues in life  that need to be faced.
  • Leo’s want to be seen and appreciated as special and unique and if they aren’t they can feel very disappointed.  

Even if  we don’t have Sun in Leo by birth, we can also experience some of these tendencies when Sun transits Leo, or key planets or houses in our chart – as the Sun in Vedic Astrology represents ego, health, confidence, the father and our leadership capabilities (to name only a few) and the Sun is always a secondary ascendant in everyone’s birth chart.

Finding a balance between the broader scheme of things and seeing details right in front of us can be both challenging and delightful with Sun transiting Leo.
(I recently found this astrological tale on the internet – some details may have been altered to assist the storyline…)

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep.

Some hours later Sherlock wakes his faithful friend…

“Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”

Watson replies, “I see millions of stars.”

What does that tell you?” asks Sherlock.

Watson ponders for a minute, then says…

“Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Libra.

Timewise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.

Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.

Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

What does it tell you?”

Holmes is silent for a moment, then speaks.

“Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent!”


It’s important to see the details as well as the grander picture with Jyotish
  • With Sun in Leo, there’s a valuable lesson to be learned about balancing perspectives
  • Having the long view while looking right up close
  • Enjoying the moment of fullness while averting the dangers not yet come
  • Jyotish offers such an unbounded perspective to those trained in this delightful science of light
  • Many analysts can get lost in the broad scheme of things and if not careful, fail to see what’s right in front of us
  • It is very easy to get tempted by the ivory tower of abstraction and fail to meet the practical needs of the every day
  • Sun in Leo shines his radiance all round to help us see things more clearly if we use the Science of Light wisely

There is an old saying ” make hay while the sun shines” – and the sun does shine brightly in Leo

Treasure and enjoy this special time of year – take full advantage of the kingly Lion at home in sign 5.

Also be wise and don’t over-indulge and over-spend – think carefully about the winter months coming and preserve.

As we look ahead to the fall of 2013

It is good to realize that the sun doesn’t always shine so brightly as it does in Leo. In just two months time, the Sun is debilitated in Libra (Oct. 17 – November 15). Where I live in northern Canada there is distinct shift from sunny, warm, autumn days and playing in the leaves to preparation for winter. By mid-October the colorful autumn leaves have been swept away; the nights are longer, and everything looks a little stark and foreboding.

Similarly the planetary influence of debilitated Sun at that time is felt world-wide as a general loss of confidence, over-reliance on others’ advice, and a feeling of not being able to go it alone. Because the global stock market is dependent on confidence, when debilitated Sun joins the challenging Saturn and Rahu  combination in Libra there could be a strong adjustment and some Vedic Astrologers predict a popping of the economic balloon.  (Read my article Rahu and Saturn in Libra – what you need to know now before events intensify!) 

For those who haven’t let Sun in Leo go to their heads and have made hay (and tucked some away) while the sun shines – times will be easier this fall.  For those who have been over-confident and over-invested in the market they may feel a pinch this fall as other economic and global shifts occur .

The full solar eclipse of debilitated Sun on November 3rd, 2013 can add to the mix as can the debilitation of both luminaries November 4 and 5th
  • Because the sun will be generally weak  by being debilitated from October 17 – November 15
  • Yuti (combined) with two strong malefics (exalted Saturn and Rahu) in Libra (the sign of business)
  • With Retrograde Mercury – challenging communications, electronics, computers, and business in general
  • The full solar eclipse on November 3rd in Swati Nakshatra can intensify an already challenged time
  • As moon shifts to debilitation November 4th and 5th – both luminaries will be debilitated
  • Be a little extra careful during this time about investments, speculation, and all business dealings
  • It’s not a good time to start new ventures for about a week before and after the eclipse patterns
  • Eclipse patterns are valuable for spiritual advancement – so more meditation and rest are advised Jyotish With Paula Advice on Vedic Astrology and the cosmic dance of the planetsJyotish With Paula’s Advice

With 10 top tips to favor and avoid

When Sun shines brightly in Leo – favor

  • finding a balance between confidence and practicality
  • enjoying the fulfilling days and happy feelings
  • absorbing the sunlight in moderation
  • spending time with those who adore you
  • accepting honest compliments
  • purchasing gold and golden things
  • feeling confident and special – you are!
  • contentment – you’ve done a good job – enjoy!
  • accepting a titled position or job advancement
  • putting some of your hay away for a gloomy day

When the Sun shines brightly in Leo – avoid

  • over-indulging your royal whims
  • becoming an ” it’s all about me” person
  • overspending to impress others
  • over-confidence leading to a great fall
  • feeling invincible and not protecting yourself
  • flattery – you may fall prey to schemes
  • roaring at everyone who fails to please you
  • hogging all of the spotlight – others do exist as well
  • the need to act brighter or smarter – you already are – so just BE
  • overlooking the obvious – it’s often right in front of you

Mother Teresa:

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.

Peace begins with a smile.
