Are Leos Really More Likely To Be Atheists???

Filed in Leo, Aries

Aslan roaring

Personally, I am a Pantheist but i’ve noted that loads of Leos are flamboyant atheists & i sometimes wonder (okay, usually wonder) if it’s because they think THEY are the deity. Seriously, the only celebrity Leo i’ve who does not seem to be an atheist is Madonna.  What do you think? Are Leos more likely to be atheists and if so, why?

O.m.g i HAD to obviously mention the two most ostentatiously atheist authors of recent times & so I looked up their birth-dates: Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens are BOTH Arieans…

I love Hitchens writing – LOVE it even though he’s always dishing out shit at witchy-poo types but I remember reading just one lead par to a Richard Dawkins piece and flipping out. He said that our bodies/brains operated like a telephone exchange, that that is essentially all we are. I (a) did  not agree and (b) thought that if we are set up anything like the telephone companies I deal with, we’re all screwed.

Thoughts?

Are Leos Really More Likely To Be Atheists??? Great question. But to me, No. Leos are the Creative Appollo energy. They’re the givers of life… literally, even if that giving is conditional. My intutive borderline psychic experiences with human beings have suggested the pragmatic, plodding immovable minds AND HEARTS like heavy… yes heavy planets in Earth signs and houses are the culprits of acid-like cynicism… who don’t, or can’t believe in a power beyond what they see with their 5 senses. A reality lived in the density of survival issues and playing the game in society (in relationships) manifest weighty… Read more »

Zinnia Jones, Queen of Atheism — she’s an Aries too. Well, it figures, with the red lipstick and very forceful arguments…

Well I’ve got the leo sun going on, and mercury in leo. I’m not an atheist.

I have my own individual faith (which I could go into but it to me it’s too personal). I accept other people’s differences but this acceptance doesn’t give people the right to ram their religious dogma down my throat.

Scrorp rising, Cancerian Sun, Leo Mercury daughter used to say she is atheist. I was a little concerned but don’t believe in messing with people’s beliefs. She had/has to experiment with what worked/s for her.

Think she’s border line agnostic now and veering toward “A God” slowly but surely. lol

For me, as a child I would lay in bed and tell God how much I loved Him/Her until tears ran down my face, and get the bible out and look at pictures of Jesus just knowing he was talking to me. It was a secret between me and God and I told noone. Have always believed in a higher power/consciousness/entity/oversoul and still do.

Only Leo I have is Uranus in 3rd trine Sun and Merc… Progressed rising is Leo and will be until I die, I think. Long time…..still believin’…. 😉

lol they see themselves as a deity LOL!
I personally think they just dont seeing anything greater than the power they have within themselves.?
I mean in the wild, a lion is ruler, what would happen to them if u suddenly stript that away from them?

I would call myself an atheist and have been since about 9 or 10. Whilst I don’t have a problem with other people’s spiritual beliefs, I do have a serious problem with people trying to ram their religious dogma down my throat.
That’s just not on.

Oh my brother is a Leo – tres unconventional Christian. I have seen him do some amazing stuff. He is a gutsy Sparky and takes on CEO’s, nasty conspirators in the mega company he works for, public giants etc. he is such a humble guy but does the most amazing stuff. I have literally seen people who had mega probs all their life released etc. So Christianity, like anything comes in all sorts of strengths, weaknesses etc. He has his own challenges like everyone else.

Cap. Athiest. 12 years of Catholic school. Found too many contradictions in organised religion – too many hypocrites (like my slutty slut ex-flatmate who’d go sing out loud and proud in one of those “Praise Jesus!!” modern youth churches then shag anything with a pulse and a penis – or just the penis – regardless of its marital status, etc… And she’d often invite me to share. But all she wanted was to get married and have babies like God called on her to do. Hmmm…) I’m a nature girl. I believe in the universe and trees and randomness and… Read more »

I was an atheist and was a mega knocker of Christians until I got involved in mega witchy poo stuff and literally met the satanic world. Called out to Christ for help and survived that altercation. As a result I am a believer – a Christian, though an unconventional one! The church is actually the people, not the building as such. I discovered faith comes in many shapes and sizes. I believe Christians are people who know they have mega issues and hence turn to christ for help and guidance in day to day life. Atheist’s basically say, nah she’ll… Read more »

Haha well I hope we do not operate like telephone exchanges & I would like to think we are much more than that…. I think you’re right that Leo’s are likely to be atheists & the ones I am thinking of probably do not even know it. They have never spoke of religion & come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever had a discussion with a Leo about religion. Speaking of arians after my parents died I was raised by an older arian aunt who was a nun. She was always strict on us going to… Read more »

wasn’t it you Mystic who once said that Leos are often aetheists as they can believe there is any thing in the universe more important than themselves? maybe that’s madonna’s thing – trying on all the religions til she finds the one that confirms she is the centre of the universe. for the record i (piscean) was aetheist briefly but have before and since been happily pantheistic. my leo bf was raised catholic but finds its irrelevant now (have educated him to the point that he now understands that him not believing in philosophy is in fact a philosophy). an… Read more »

I read this just before I left for my afternoon class. I was pondering Pantheism, being unsure where I stand when it comes to theology. Imagine my surprise when my professor began discussing Giordano Bruno, 16th/17th c. Italian philosopher, and described him as a Pantheist. Coincidence? Or the universe at work?

Am Leo Rising Aries, Moon Sagg and I trip the light mystical and fantastic most totally and always have really. Brought up Catholic I was gonna be the next Theresa of Avila, ta very much. I slept on floorboards and gave it up to God at 13. Then I discovered the Devil wears Prada… Anyway, by 16 I was moving towards mysticism in the form of Buddhism and it’s all been amazing and some hard work from there. I believe there is a Godhead, just it’s a bit awesome to get so personal in a human way about It. I… Read more »

I don’t know what i am! I love seeing beautifully dressed people coming out of churches and sound of hymns drifting across green lawns. I love new age shops and the new age. I like to feel that i have a personal direct line to my guardian angel. I think richard dawkins is mad. I wish i could sound like christopher hitchens at dinner parties when conversation turns to afghanistan or something. i do like to meditate and i think i was a celtic druid sort of a person in a past life. Was it dawkins who said we may… Read more »

No, cos if you wanted to worship yourself you would be a satanist, NOT a devil-worshipper. 2 distinct things. A very good friend of mine is a Cap and a satanist. When he goes around regular people he tells them he is an atheist but he’s more spiritual than that. He does rituals that affirm him and so on. He doesn’t believe in god(s). All the Leo females I know are moderate Christians or moderate Buddhists. I only know 1 Leo male and he is a satanist as well. The Aquarians I know tend to be in a cult or… Read more »

Either the think they are God, or they just don’t need him, cause they can do everything just as well, right?

Yes, well as a bit of a multi-Leo, I grew out of organised religion at a very young age (by 11). I just figured out that none of the people in church who were telling me “how stuff is” knew any more than me, and also there was no WAY they could know any more than me. They were as human as me, therefore they had no more knowledge. I have been fairly immune to any religious person claiming to be the “one way” ever since. On the other hand, I love churches – I love holy places – I… Read more »

If Richard Dawkins see’s his heritage as ‘the primordial slime’ , then who am I to disagree. Hitchens though is my type of commentator, I agree with Uber, he is more anti religious fundamentalism than against the idea of god. He seems to be about keeping the bastards honest and thank god someone is trying to do that. As a species I think we are starting to learn that we can ‘create’ another species and be its god…so why couldn’t we have just been in the same situation and been ‘the created’ not so long ago. This would of course… Read more »

Well I’m a Leo and a raving Spiritualist over here in Southport England. Even my father who is a saggo and not a great believer said the other day that there has to be a God otherwise none of this makes sense.

Atheists tend to have an overblown estimation of human intellect and that might be compatible with Leos’ drive for self expression, but then again there’s Jung, who was unashamedly mystic. GB Shaw was also a Leo and he famously said something like: ‘when people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in something else, they believe in anything else.’ Hitchens is a top writer and thinker, but the only stuff I’ve read of his was political atheism. More of an attack on the strife caused by institutional religions and fundamentalism than on the existence of God. Then again, I didn’t… Read more »

Thank you for Sagg in 5th house information. Very apt for me. I have enthusiasm for art, am adventurous and extremely curious, ,..I love life.
Agree with you re: GB Shaw. My headmistress (who taught me english lit and french ) was always quoting him. She may have been eccentric but god, she was right!!…most of the time, anyway!! x

No worries little fish. Can’t say I agree with all he said but GB Shaw is extremely quotable.

If anyone is interested, the above doco has an interesting bit at the end where a Cambridge evolutionary paleobiologist (!), Simon Conway Morris, talks about the ability of birds an animals to produce a culture of music, which points to the possible existence of a universal music. Must investigate this further.

Yes, UV, GBS was very unkind to Wittgenstein, out of intellectual envy I believe. But he did make people THINK. It was an interesting time with WB Yeats and Madame Blavatsky. Must find my old books and have a reread.

Telephone Company? Well, it only took one call to have the 1.500 overcharge deleted, only spoke to 2 operators & had 2 x 20 minute ‘on hold’. Impressed, as i had delayed the call for 4 months (took that long to formulate a 10 minute explantion of the chaos). THIS is why have remained a Telstra client & pay more, so i’m happy with my telephone exchange 🙂 Of course Dawkins is an aethiest. He’s a machine. Very clever one but never slid down the rainbow & saw the god particle. He never meditated on that painting ‘the hand of… Read more »

oh MM, I ADORE Mr Hitchens! Could you be the blond, extroverted Pisces twin to my brunette, introverted Virgo?

I love him even though he supports a war. I admire the depth of his conviction and the thoroughness of his arguments, even if I don’t agree with where he ends up.

I think I fell most deeply on reading this article in the New Yorker, and for all the wrong reasons!

I don’t think I believe in “god”, so maybe I am an atheist…the only faith needed is to have is faith in faith, that works for me. Everything else is a great mystery & I believe in the magic of that too.

I’m def a pantheist although the beauty and reverance involved in the designing and making of a cathedral, mosque or synagogue also fills me with as much awe as the night sky or a supernova over my favourite island in my favourite harbour whilst skinny dipping with friends. I love the photograph by it’s either edward westin or ansel adams with the path through the beautiful field of grasses leading up to the humble wooden church and the door is shut. One of my tutors once said he thought the image was flawed because the door wasn’t open, it took… Read more »

Well I was raised with the idea of a God being there, and it’s stuck around ever since. Idk, it may be all that Venus in Kataka and a megaton of planets in my fourth house that makes me snug as a bug in a rug with the idea?

Then again, what signs prefer the comfort of knowing there’s a god out there?
