Here, we have a serious synthesis of warm regality and lofty and far sighted thought energy. With this Sun/Moon duo, the fuel of seeking recognition and validation for one’s uniqueness and irreplaceability is reflected and given form through a personality which aims to have an impact on the world through the ideas and IDEALS which permeate their life philosophy.
The Sagittarian arrows of expansive mental activity have the potential to be illuminated or scorched by the light of the Leo Sun, depending on one’s overall level of development.
Through this astrological signature, we develop a portrait of one who’s energized by the sheer enjoyment of life and the creativity and “play” elements that are included in one’s personal, explorative journey. Being liked, admired and seen as special by others boosts one’s vitality and having one’s opinions respected and taken seriously provides the emotional nourishment.
There’s no question that a fiery and robust spirit is present, which seeks an enormous amount of freedom to navigate the world with the specific purpose of finding more of themselves. The danger in taking this to the extreme results in a failure to recognize that you already ARE what you seek. With this combination, the notion of “hero-worship” should fly out the window because with the proper effort applied towards your personal development, you are indeed THAT HERO.
A noble warmth combined with a high-minded thirst for knowledge and understanding is the ideal for a Leo Sun, Sagittarius Moon blend. When operating dysfunctionally, a haughty self-righteousness and an overly inflated sense of importance take the front seat, which not only blinds you, but also those around you, which in turn, obscures all of your good intentions.
More than anything, what you want is to live in passionate pursuit of ideals and then actually LIVE them out. With this double fire combination one must guard against “all INSPIRATION and no PERSPIRATION.”
Astrologer Noel Tyl states:
“Two fire signs in this blend take the ego-recognition energies and shoot them high: there’s drama, daring, adventure and love all lifted up to where ideals catch fire. The flow is almost too easy, and the enthusiasms that abound can burn up all the fuel. One can ride through life too easily on appearances and desires, rather than on effort and accomplishment.”
What we see as the ultimate goal stated in this combination of solar strength and distant contemplation, is: to be as much of one’s authentic self as humanly possible by embodying and demonstrating one’s worldview through a shining example of exemplary behavior.
