The Sun is in its own sign in Leo. Ego is in the sign of ego, shiny and creative, life affirming and warm. The term “ego” sometimes gets a bad rap but a strong, healthy ego is the backbone or heart (Leo) of a strong, healthy personality. The transiting Sun illuminates everything it touches. They say there’s nothing new under the Sun, but sometimes it brings things to light in new perspective.
The extra shiny Sun in Leo hits your chart in the same place every year, by house and by aspect. For me that’s the 12th house, a house where a planet’s effects can seem hidden for some. I find the Sun is the most comfortable planet I ever have in my 12th. It warms up my dark, hidey places and I don’t have my usual reaction to a planet transiting there, one of “get it out, get it out, get it out!” In fact, for me it’s often a time of yearly renewal of an attitude of connectedness to the universe. That is also a function of the 12th house and Neptune, as well as relating to my Neptune (Pisces Sun).
At some point during its stay in Leo the sun will aspect your own Sun. This brings extra creative focus and illumination to your ego, no matter where your Sun is. It’s a great time to focus on who you are, revel in it.
Where does the transiting Leo Sun hit your chart? Where is your own Sun?
