Astrology – The House Where You Have Leo

High fashion gold, bronze and copper head dress regalia and henna eyebrows

The House Where You Have Leo is where you must Reign Or Abdicate. And either way, you will be damn noble about it. It’s where you aspire. Hell, do you aspire. You shine, get trophies and like to be seen here.

If you can’t make that scene dazzling and amazing than, well, you’ll stay at home. (If you don’t know where your Leo sector/house is, consider getting one of my Astral DNA birth chart reports).

Your Leo sector is where you cannot bear things to be tatty or naff. Culture – cinema, music, fine art – inspires you in the affairs of this house. In fact, you can be over-influenced by it. Think of the sorts of people who identify strongly with movie/television characters or relate so strongly to certain novels that they subliminally play out the narrative.

You can have a teenage tolerance for dramatics or appreciation of scenes in the House Where You Have Leo.

It is also the sector where you can turn practically anything around, at Warp Speed, via the strength of your creative force and performance flair. The House Where You have Leo is where you rehearse your lines. No matter how authentic you are, it’s a performance on some level.

But you can also withdraw from the house where you have Leo, for fear of stage fright. Or in an artistic tantrum akin to ‘if you can’t sing Mezze Soprano at the Met than you’re not going to sing at all’ style of a snit.

Going through old Leo posts for inspo! I have three 7 house leo signs… sun, Venus, and mercury and even before the co-19 stay at home orders, I had quit my full time job and started online classes (after a two year break) and being a shut in… not feeling a lot of shine as of 2019/2020— started around 2016 honestly! But this leo needs it back.


Leo in the 2nd with Leo Venus & Virgo Mars there…and boy do I hate being guilted about the price of stuff I buy. I’m a Virgo so guilt comes naturally but not when it comes to my STUFF, body, food etc. It’s crazy how unashamedly Leo I am when it comes to 2nd house matters…why yes I do NEED that $100 jar of La Mer & there’s nothing anyone can say to stop me from getting it ;-p


12th house Leo—just like Keanu Reeves and Kevin Costner!! But what does it mean??


My SUN in Gemini is in the 12th House, and Uranus and Pluto in Leo in the 2nd House w/LEO on the cusp. I also have Jupiter in Virgo in the 3rd House w/LEO on the cusp. I’ve been advised to write, write, write.


Hey…my sun is in pisces in the 12th, have jupiter in the 3rd too (gem)
I sometimes forget how much I need to write!


Thanks! I also read that it’s my descendant because my ascendant is Aquarius…so Leo is the opposite of that and affects my partnerships. Interesting.


According to Astrodienst, my Leo is on my Descendant, not in a House! What on earth does that mean?

cheshire cap

It means that it’s on the cusp of 6th and 7th houses


Like aqualeo, have Saturn, Mars, MC/10th house Leo. Cannot disagree with the assessment. I have an inner attention whore screaming to get out, but given how picked on I was as a child (and I am not attractive), I’m afraid to let it. Not looking forward to bastards going on about how ugly I am if I step out into the spotlight a la Susan Boyle.

But I will probably have to give into it someday. Who are we kidding, right?


Yep, Leo ascendant. Explains why I’m misread by so many people. And the hair, obviously, & the general social performance. Yesss. Any other significance/tendencies?


leo 4th house. HAVE to live in a beautiful house with beautiful surrounds.

Uranian&Plutonic Virgo

Got home & read this one, thought to self, I’m a tad schtooped as how to blend the half 9th house-half 10th house Leo (conjunct MC no less) with the Sun Virgo, which is more ‘I’ll just hang there toward the back’ AND the Scorp rising (I’m behind the scenes officially). Hm…
“10th house Leo is a genius at self-promo & come alive when they’re on the telly. Has billboard fantasies.” Mystic, that is a LOT to aspire to!!! What genius at self-promo? I’m paranoid about it…eh…
More things to learn then I suppose

margy the cap

Just read a little of the 12th house and if Leo is out there and over the top ect does this mean lots of hidden enemies or powerful enemies?? the 12th also dreams and other world items…. does that make us more in tune with the other dimensions…. know things just by looking at people??? Are our deams bigger or better?? my questions just keep coming… just know my dreams are way out there at the moment and it involves many people around me and not if it’s the full moon thats coming or something on the premersion side of… Read more »

What about if you’ve got Leo in your twelth house? Does that mean I can’t keep secrets?


Leo in the 11th! I really do get so much energy and enjoyment from friends. And playful doesn’t even begin to describe it. 😛

I love when you write DIY Astro posts, Mystic!!


Leo in the tenth, always adored the camera, being the ‘star’ of home videos. Studied journo to be a broacast one, didn’t go through with it though. Always been somewhat quiet/shy but in front of a camera, yes I do shine.
Leo in Saturn and Mars and midheaven as well…wowsa, looking forward to some brave new changes ahead, esp in the workplace.


Leo in the first. Well crap. Care to expand a little more on that, Mystic?


*grins* I have Leo in the 12th house & my Sun is in the 8th, can we say very loud overdramatic drunk ;)?


Leo in 9th, ditch the baggage & pick up the luggage. I can do that!

gem le taureau

My Leo is in the eleventh house. Friends and associates? Throw lots of parties/start a matchmaking service/win friends and influence people?


Leo in the 5th. Gonna be busy.


Have you got an ‘creative’ communication style LL?

Leonine Librarian

Oh how to communicate creativity…hmm there is the standard verbal encounter…which changes with whomever I converse. I have one of those weirdly pattern seeing minds…so I tend to listen a lot to what someone else is saying and then rainman style almost shout of connections…(well this is how it feels sometimes…I’m hoping I don’t actually go all idiot savant…I do know that it is fueled by an honest joy in sharing with others). This seems to happen professionally, socially…just happens, a lot. This to me is one element of creativity, seeing new things, being able to explain them to someone… Read more »

Leonine Librarian

lol just read back this absolute stream of thoughts that shows very little connection to punctuation, grammar or even at times the english language…I am usually a bit more coherent.

Leonine Librarian

By way of explanation, I had just mainlined 5 lemon sherberts…sugar is not always my friend.


Most of my third house is in Leo – definitely some flamboyant communication styles (striding around the lecture theatre in full steam) yes to big noting siblings! (they are amazing creatures!!) But have Leo on the ascendent (sorry not sure how to explain) of my 4th house – i definitely love to entertain and have a lot of colour and creative expression chez moi – big harbour views, 7 acres, 5 minutes from town BUT also have saturn in Leo opposing sun and uranus, so lots of merde to work out re sibling rivalry and not having a nest. Only… Read more »

cusp Edwina – the line that divides the houses is called the cusp. The ascendant is the first house cusp, then there’s the second house cusp etc. The sign thats on the cusp is the sign that rules the house. Hope that makes sense 🙂


good grief i have 8th house leo, please explain this PORN STAR? business mystic!!!!

me too pisceaness and trine my sagg moon. One long honeymoon?? with astounding psychic insights?? A girl can dream…..


At least you’d always know if he’s in the mood for sure or not Chesh…

giggling here……he’s a taurus…need I say more?


8th house sex stuff….Things like that. Add Leo (wanting to shine, etc.) and kaboom!


Missy Luscious Lips….Behind the Not so Green? Door….

Leonine Librarian

Cool, Third house in Leo. So eight months of grand creative energy. Although I think it a waste of time trying to big note siblings. Massive energy suck. I think I’d much rather work on bigger stuff.

taurean alchemist

me too LL – Leo on third house cusp. I hope it’s going to mean heaps of energy for writing and communicating. I cannot be bothered with sibs either – these days. I did once feel very responsible for my brother and sister (not my half sibs tho) but find them too much of a mystery these days. I gotta say I reckon Mystic’s right about the House of Hubris – I’m definitely a drama queen when it comes to being heard – been known to really throw a tanty if I feel I’m being ignored. am currently attempting to… Read more »

Oh that’s not until October right ? That’s going to be quite some month, with Saturn trolling into Libra too.

meanwhile – Mars is still in Aries right? Yes, and today is conjunct my natal Venus… and I am having the urge to google sperm banks rather than risk another dad scenario and to satisfy my disturbing need for another child. Crikey.


Hey TA,

On tv the other day, the news was talking about men selling sperm to make money in this economy (women selling eggs too….). What they said was that the most popular man charcterisitcs were 6 ft. tall, blonde and green or blue eyes. Dimples were extra! Gotta a giggle out of that after the dimple talk on the other thread last week.

My Leo on third house cusp as well. Uranus conj…


I’ll have a six footer with an order of dimples on the side…


taurean alchemist

lol Sweetpea… I want mine to look like Keanu Reeves 😉


Oh as far as siblings… Libra bro is coming down on Mother’s Day for Mom with food and all and only requesting I do the salad. He is an attentive son. Bought her a $1800.00 recliner that damn near wipes her butt if not at least vibrates it 🙂 And, got her a flat screen t.v., $500 cash for the hell of it. Of course he’s not spoiling quite as much now with the economy, but one thing he’s not (Libra Sun, Sag Moon), is cheap… Haven’t spoken to my sister in four years. She fits the Uranus in my… Read more »

yeah, I’m not so sure about what bignote means… thought it was about talking them up big – exaggerating their qualities etc.

bit like you just did, lol
