All About Leo Traits

The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. So the Leo traits in the Leo decans general sections will speak for the Leo rising meaning as there is no planetary filter. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so those influences will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. Check out your individual Leo decan meanings below for more details.


LEO Traits by Rising Sign Decan *

Leo Decan 1 from 0º to 10º Leo. The fixed stars interpretation for the ascendant are not very positive, and there is certainly violence. Mostly this seems to take place in relationships where there is “violent lust”. But a list that contains both Aleister Crowley and Edgar Cayce shows there are two sides to the same coin.

Out of pain and addiction can come the healer. There is also the strength that comes after a struggle. Ascendant Leo 1 can have very challenging, obsessive and dramatic relationships, in some cases, they inspire art (Morrisette.) Talent and prophetic ability are here, usually, it is a gift passed down from their ancestors. 

Leo Decan 2 from 10º to 20º Leo. These folk are either going to be hugely confident in relationships or suffer a total lack of ego and be attracted to egoistical people. Even the most insecure of these will be perceived as bossy, in the sense that they may only feel confident if they are in total control of their partner.

The mother bear energy means that Leo 2 rising will easily become the parent and caretaker in the relationship. Their appearance is very often glamorous or theatrical and some of them may be known for their golden hair or wild locks.

Leo Decan 3 from 20º to 30º Leo. Without a doubt, this must be the most authoritarian ascendant you can have. This is the boss no question. Not everyone born with this decan rising has to be typically bossy or domineering, but they are natural born leaders depending on how the rest of the chart is configured.

Any planet conjunct the Ascendant will show what style of king or queen they are too, but all will expect you to show them loyalty and respect. Since the Ascendant is the physical body it is amusing to see that some subjects often embody the look of the lion, sporting a golden mane or possessing an oversized head.
