The Moon transits in Leo today, and we’re all attracted to the spotlight. We want everybody’s attention, but when we get it, we don’t know what to do with it. We want the praise and admiration, but not the criticism that comes with it. Emotional satisfaction comes mainly from validation, but we have to realize that that’s an unhealthy way to get emotional support.
To learn how the Moon in Leo affects your sign, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, today you will go to the ends of the earth just to get the attention of the person you love. Whether that’s your partner or a crush, it will sting when you don’t get the attention you want. But when they do give it, and it doesn’t match with your expectations, you will not know what to do with it. Perhaps it’s time to stop relying on your partner’s attention for validation, Aries. It’s normal to want romantic attention, but if it’s your only source of confidence, it can’t do you any good.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’ve always wanted to be seen by your family. Today, it will hurt a little more when you don’t get the attention and validation you think they deserve from them. You just want to be celebrated for your achievements, is that really too much to ask for? So you look for it in other places—in romantic partners, in casual flirtationships, in toxic friends, anything that could make you feel good about yourself. Sometimes, we can’t help our family’s toxicity, Taurus. Remember that it’s not your fault they can’t give you what you need.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It’s no secret that you want love, Gemini, and today you’re fiercely showing this desire to the world. The romantic poet in you is making an appearance today, and you want people to be drawn by it. And when you don’t get the attention you want, you get pissed. You know you deserve it, why can’t you get it? Know that you can’t force people to give you their attention, Gemini. Don’t rely on the validation of strangers to feel good about yourself.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s inherent in your nature to seek love and romance, Cancer, and today you’re using your precious resources to impress that one person. You’re giving them what they want and offering to provide what they need in the hopes that they will see that you’re worth loving. But you don’t have to break the bank to be loveable, Cancer. Even without your money and material possessions, you’re worth loving—and only a stupid person won’t be able to see that.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The moon is in your first house of the self today, Leo, and your confidence and emotional gratification become interdependent. You love yourself more when you’re able to feel comfortable in your own skin. When you receive the love you need from your romantic partner and friends just by being yourself, it feels so good. We all deserve to have people to love and rely on, Leo, so don’t ever think you don’t deserve the love they so willingly give you.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, the Moon in Leo urges you to connect with your inner self today, to see the foundations of your self-confidence—are they shaky? Do they need mending? Or are they more stable than ever? If you haven’t been feeling confident lately, you might seek it from the wrong places. However, if your confidence is built on strong foundations, it will drive you to the right romantic partners who will boost your strong confidence even more rather than bring you down.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you’re spending the day with friends today, and in your interactions, you might seek the validation you need. You’re giving them what they want and what they need, and it gives you so much emotional fulfillment to see that you’re able to help them. But don’t overcompensate, Libra. You don’t have to give everything just to feel a little loved. Your friends already love you, and you don’t have to give anything in return to get the love you need.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You’re chasing after your dreams today, Scorpio, and it makes you feel so good as you reach them one by one. You want to be successful, but don’t let yourself get tunnel-visioned. Even if it validates your ego to be successful in your field, don’t neglect your other responsibilities, because if you do, you’ll be left with nothing but your hollow achievements. So pay attention to your friends, take your partner out on dates, and spend time with family every time you can. I promise it will be worth it.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Your curiosity is one of the best things about you, Sagittarius, and today you’re exploring the world to satiate this curiosity. You like meeting new people, learning about them, and forging a strong connection with them. If you’re single, you might find yourself seeking validation from the new people you meet. But the confidence you get from the validation from strangers is fleeting, Sagittarius. Don’t neglect your already existing relationships in the pursuit of getting validation from people you barely know.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’ve always found it hard to be vulnerable, Capricorn, but today you’re trying a little harder as you seek intimacy with the people in your life. You want them to pay attention to you, to love you even with all your flaws and imperfections, but you don’t know where, or how, to let your walls down. It’s okay to be afraid, Capricorn. Be gentle with yourself, let yourself get the love you need from the people around you, and you will soon find it a little easier to be vulnerable.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You like to intellectualize your feelings, Aquarius, and today you’re intellectualizing your feelings about your past and present romantic partners. You analyze why you love them, how you’ve developed feelings for them, and how you can avoid getting hurt in the future again because— let’s face it—having your heart broken sucks so bad. But you don’t have to avoid feeling your feelings to avoid getting hurt in the future, Aquarius. You can never truly understand what you feel if you keep avoiding to feel them.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re focusing on your health today, Pisces, and you wonder which people to keep in your life and which to cut ties with to better your mental health and well-being. You’re finally seeing that the people who constantly make you feel bad about yourself don’t have a place in your life, and it’s best to cut ties with them. But it still makes you feel bad. Don’t think it’s your responsibility to love people who are hard to love, Pisces. You’ve got to look after yourself, too.
