Performance Leos

Filed in Leo

Someone recently asked me what i meant by “Performance Leo” and i said i would answer on the post. So here is my response, in pictures. Great performers, artists and people of the spotlight spring from all signs of the Zodiac but Performance Leo really is a realm apart. Scroll down for more examples. Thoughts?

Gene Kelly

Roger Federer is a Rock Star Leo. That man is a freakin artist on the court. It’s not like I obsessively watch tennis … but Roger omfg! It’s like watching a dancer … all elegence and beauty. I love the fact he’s so stable in his home life, has been with his girlfriend and now wife for years. He’s humble, grateful. Now that’s Haute Leo.

His imperious backhand is one the most magic things in sport.
Up there with David Gower’s cover drive,
Steffi Graf’s forehand
And Barrie Robran’s mercurial leaps.

David Gower’s cover drive….that was poetry. Watched him play many a time.
I just looked at his chart…no birth time on wiki but quadruple Aries, sun-Venus conj, moon-Merc conj all in Aries, sun trine Saturn in Sagg. (Isn’t that aspect one of lasting legacy?) He is now a major advocate against animal cruelty.
Read his autobiography if you can find it, possibly out of print now and written stupidly early in life but just post his cricketing career if I remember rightly. Eloquent, funny, erudite. He wrote it himself, I believe, not a ghost writer which is unusual for sporting guys.

I’d say 10th Aries. He had a diffident / unobtrusive nature indicating Kat Asc. His actions spoke louder than words. He appeared ‘above the fight’.

I LOVE this!

Gene Kelly does not vibe Leo to me – he is 30 mins shy of a Virgo Sun and I don’t trust his birth time. Even the jokey gif, pushing people out the way in a white coat screams irritable Virgo to me! (Sorry gorgeous Virgos) He has no …heat.
Inherited my performance Leo from my Performance Pisces father, while I passed it on to my Performance Cangrejo boy. The only difference in our electric smarm I think is the direct Leo Sunny heat. Pisces being more sparkling and Cancer more shyly professional.

Visual posts are always fun!

Agree bout Gene seems to clean and reminds me of my secretly married Leo once upon a time lover who was probs a Virgo sun – there is a sheen to them like they have been polished

Ooh I like the positive quality of polished Virgo sheen to the performance vibe!

Funny you say Sparkling! Piscean Sun, despite my Leo MC and Sag Rising plus Aries 5th Merc i felt i never translated enough of the warm fire in performing, and would always feel shy and a bit disappointed by it, then surprised at people coming up to me afterwards…their eyes!…i thought their words were just being kind or polite, but i was always taken aback by sparkles in the audience’s eyes! If i caught them while performing, it felt like a prismic meditation they were wrapped in, and it made me smile and somersault into giving more shine. They say… Read more »

Thank you for that pisc sparkle description…as a Pisces sun Leo mc a part of me rly wants to perform but feels shy or disappointed (and scorp asc wants to shadow lurk far away). I envy Leo pizazz !!! But love the prism description above , way more my speed

The audience are a river of actions and do sparkle too! I think people love the vulnerability and glitter and the sweet fishy peeps, am sure they were not just being kind Mille. 😉

I love performance Leos! They are like the sun coming out from behind a cloud – they know the world loves them. There’s a real dumb innocence in their belief in themselves. They make me think of labrador puppies, all golden and pat me!

I dated a perfomance Leo for a while and most of my memories of that time are linked to parties and what we wore to them.

i am a performance leo but…i feel like it’s tempered (not a bad thing) by a strong, deep undercurrent–MC at zero scorp? or leo sun in the 8th? for example i never make any kind of fuss in public to draw attention but i auto-beguile everyone in a room. also i am a babe and can selfie or play model in front of a mirror by myself for hours, but i get fuqing awkward like 70% of the time anyone else takes a picture of me. so big negative for this performance leo is: too controlling–my sagg ascendant with uranus… Read more »

I have Merc cj Uran in Leo turboed by my Aqua Moon, opposing my Uran, and Sun. I quote lines from films, or tracts of songs, politicians, sportscelebs, etc, befitting of whatever occasion. It tends to reflect my MoonNep interests of music and films.

Mine was stifled like Chrys above. A spoon or bread n butter knife across the face was an effective deterrent. I suffered teeth damage on at least five occasions. He nailed a coffee table to my brother’s head. But he was a fair man. (Apols to Monty Python)

Good grief, what was your brother singing? Nah, PF, that’s shit. With your Sun in Kataka, which is Moon-y sign you would have to always find ways to let that Electric Sunny bit shine, despite being programmed (by metal objects nonetheless, Uranus, you know and most sensitive on the teeth) without old neurological (electricity-ruled again) jolts of pain. Without bringing up old similar crapsticks in my ancient stories, i will say i always appreciate your humour, because i feel the metallic bits that got tempered. My Merc’s conjunct Chiron in Fire and both oppose Uranus in Air. Crackle crackle pop… Read more »

Oh a “singe” in one of my languages means monkey.

Yes as a kid I LOVED performing, singing, dancing + as I got older the joy of being of front of an audience was diminished by overly critical adults –

Still as an adult I can’t help but still play + be joyful, it’s my natural state, being a Leo rising is fun 🙂

Off topic I know but I have always thought Mae West was a drag queen. His/her real interest was in gay men who filled her life, not straight men and her humour bore all the wit and outrageous quality of a gay man rather than that of a woman, especially of her/his era. Don’t think the vast majority of people would have twigged to it then.

Noooo she is all woman! She stood about 5ft tall and was a smart cookie who transitioned from Vaudeville to Hollywood and pushed the boundaries of time and was basically a feminist trailblazer who equally shocked and delighted the public until the hardline right brought in the Hays Code which lucky for her came too late to completely stop her brilliant career

I like my Leos understated.
As well as R Federer, there is that other haute great, Rod Laver; the only person to ever do it twice.

Actors: Funny girl Kristen Wiig and Dustin Hoffmann and A Rickmann.

But my fave is, of course, Kate Bush. Her birthday is 30th July. She is too quirky for wide acceptance. But she is Moon opp Sun cj Uran. I KNOW she is the greatest living exponent of the aural arts. I have evidence. In hard format. CDs!!!

If she only knew her Venus was on my Asc….

Love Kate Bush! And as for Federer – the very model of an Haute Leo. His ego is so under control he could pass for another sign!

Ha – ‘performance Leo’ is a tautology 🙂

Even when I was quite young I would flick and style my hair, pose for photos and turn the slightest thing (ie making myself a Milo) into a pretend TV show with an audience of thousands.
I had this literally and figuratively slapped out of me by a few choice humans along the way. So cruel the way my natural exuberance and performance vibe was squashed but I got it back eventually. Leo rising plus loaded 5th house.

You’re never too old to start acting. Alan Rickman started acting professionally at 46 years old, quickly became one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood.
I hate to see people’s dreams deferred by hateful/jealous/ignorant others. Start acting again.

AquavirgoesMM Member

That’s really not true about Alan Rickman, he went to RADA and was a professional actor from his twenties. However the sentiment is true, we can (and should) always encourage people to at least try to follow their dreams!!

Betty
Betty

ok, correction he started at 26 according to his IMBD bio.

“At the relatively late age of 26, Rickman received a scholarship to RADA, which started a professional acting career that has lasted nearly 40 years, a career which has spanned stage, screen and television and lapped over into directing, as well.”

But, you’re never too old to pursue a passion. go for it! <3

Reading that back I see how victim-centred it sounded, soz – was feeling it particularly yesterday as I was due at a social function which one of the chief abusers would also be attending.

I do perform now in a variety of ways, but not as an actor. And I totes won the night last night 🙂
